My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Spiteful Punks: Dolls and Douchebags part one is a dark and emotional reverse harem novel from Madeline Fay. I had never read any of Madeline Fay’s work before reading this but I was intrigued by the blurb and decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did as I enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
I would definitely say that this book is for age 18+ due to some of the more adult content in it. There is also the chance that this book could be a trigger for some.
Tillie has had one hell of an upbringing. She grew up with an MC club where her father was the Prez. A father, who did nothing to protect her, in fact he betrayed her in the most horrible way as soon as she turned 16.
This start to this book really drew me in and had me hooked straight away. I was desperate to know how Tillie would cope with her life. When she manages to escape from the MC club her life takes a turn that you would never expect. Tillie is now drawn into a whole new world and some of it makes for hard reading.
I feel we are just starting to get to know Tillie as a person when this first book in the series comes to and end and I’m eager to read what the author has in store next for Tillie.

When I first started reading this book, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was in for, I’ve not read anything by the author previously and I have to say I really enjoyed what I read. The depth of feeling that was in the book really took me by surprise, I really got into the story and the characters so easily. Tillie was a great main character to read about and her story was heart-breaking in parts. I really felt that depth of emotion coming from her.
I love a dark read and this definitely satisfied that for me. I am so looking forward to reading the rest of the series, if book one is anything to go by, I think I am definitely in for a good read!

This book is only for those over 18 due to its adult nature and possibly triggering themes.

Tillie is seventeen and she has only known darkness in her life, apart from when her Uncle was still alive, he treated her better than anyone else, but the abuse she has suffered at the hands of said “family” is horrific and has caused her every kind of pain imaginable. Her father is the President of an motorcycle club and he is the one which has instigated most of her pain and created the nightmares of her abuse which relives at night, that is until someone who cares about her helps her to escape, so she crashes her bike, hitches a ride to the nearest city and heads to an address where she is told she will be safe. She has to do this in disguise and fabricate a story to go with her actions, but she finally feels free and the day after she turns eighteen and makes it to the address, her life is about to change.

Her arrival is unexpected and unknowingly she causes a bit of upset, but she is told to make herself at home and help herself to anything she needs, she decides the first thing is going to be to get something to eat, but just as she is about to eat it, she hears footsteps in the hallway and fearing the worst, she grabs a kitchen knife and confronts the person, however, the young man she finds isn’t anyone she knows, but he is just as dangerous. Even as he is being threatened by Tillie, he has the same tinge of darkness and madness as she sees in her own eyes and as he brandishes his own knife hidden in his boot, she is confused by the fact that she is aroused by the whole scene and even more confused when a second young man approaches from behind and just increases the sensations in his own way, a light to the other’s darkness. They introduce themselves as Logan and Trey and these confused feelings come to a head when the next morning she realises that the suite she has slept in isn’t as secure as she hoped when Logan enters the shower with her and they end up in a passionate embrace, but as a meeting is called with the household and another young man, her world is about to be turned upside down.

Once the truth of where she has escaped to comes to the fore and she is told that she will be attending the local school and that the young men are told that she is not to be let out of their sight, they must escort her everywhere and that she will be meeting the fourth member of the young men’s group and he will have her schedule ready for her to collect, after this revelation, the names of the mysterious third and fourth young man are revealed as Nicholas and Dalton. Will Tillie be able to figure out her feelings about the four young men and whether she will be accepted into thes new life despite feeling like an outcast? Will she be able to keep her sanity in this new type of cage, or will her darkness break through and destroy her once and for all? This is a thrillingly dark romance which is unpredictable, hard hitting and keeps you guessing until the end.

Let me start by saying: this novel is not for the weak at heart. The first chapters were a bit difficult to get through- I should have paid more attention to the disclaimer that the dark themes may be sensitive for some readers- did this take away my overall reading experience? Absolutely Not!

The cards that Tillie was dealt made her character more relatable and had me likening her to the phoenix bird, who will be reborn from the ashes and signifies a journey through fire or adversity. I am waiting with bated breath to see Tillie finally soar. I am rooting for her transformation that I know is coming “I’ll show them all that they are messing with the wrong spiteful girl…”. Tillie, I am right there with you.

I have developed a love-hate relationship with the antagonists. I appreciated that the characters were individually described and then collectively depicting their contribution to the ‘team’. This is not the average run-of-the-mill novel, but a page-turner intricately and creatively written. Predictable- it is not.

My burning question is: Madeline- where is part 2?

Whoa. Hold your horses because this one will absolutely knock you flat off of your feet. The cover will immediately grab your attention and the synopsis definitely lends itself to easily convey a moving tale with the pages. But this book absolutely left me completely engrossed and captivated. I couldn’t escape the movement of the story, the raw emotion. I’m still feeling a bit she’ll shocked. It is truly a story that will surprise you in some truly fantastic ways. I can’t wait to see what the author brings next!

Spiteful Punks: dolls and douchebags part one by Madeline Fay. This book is so good and not like anything you have read. It does come with some trigger warnings but it is soooo good. Its the story of Tillie and all the crappy men she has had to deal with one being her very own dad. She is only 18 and has dealt with a ton of crap in her short life. Tillie is no victim though, she has learned to deal with crap way better than a lot of adults! When she meets Logan, Trey & Nicholas she knows the tricks they are up to but she is intrigued all the same. She’s on the run for her life with nothing but her name and so she knows not to trust anyone but these 3 seem a little different. She really wants to be able to trust someone and she thinks these guys might just be good “bad” boys! This book will make you cry and keep you turning pages way into the night!

Oh My Goodness! I couldn’t put this book down. I read way past my bedtime and was exhausted at work the next day but it was worth it. I do need to warn you that this book is definitely for 18+ readers and there are many triggers fir those that may be sensitive. Warnings aside, my heart broke for Tillie. Only 18 and she’s been through so much already. She’s been living in hell lucky that she’s still alive. Barely making it out, she ran as fast as she can. Hoping they won’t find her but knowing they will never stop looking. Tillie ends up in a place she never dreamed she would be. As the saying goes, “out of the pan into the fire”. Looks can be deceiving and she ends up in a similar situation. She’s determined to start a new life and not let anyone push her around this time.

The characters are well rounded and the story is well written. There is action, danger and sexy men. What more could you ask for? The story ends on a cliffhanger which sucks. Now I’m waiting anxiously to read the next part.

Spiteful Punks – dolls and douchebags part one by Madeline Fay is dark and packs a punch. The FMC, Tillie, has been through so much pain and anguish – and to what end? The author has you feeling all the emotions right from the star and doesn’t let up until the end. Even though this is mostly told from Tillie’s POV, I really enjoyed reading from the guys POV – they were all written so differently and easily distinguishable. Such intensity oozes off each page. Definitely recommend this book and will continue this series.

Spiteful Punks is Part One of the Dolls and Douchebags series by Madeline Fay. This is a new author for me and she had me at the blurb. This book is everything that the title and the blurb describes. Plus more. It is dark. It is dangerous. It is thought provoking. It is shocking. It is quite literally unlike anything I have read in ages. The storyline was very descriptive, and the characters were tormented and there were some confronting issues present. Spiteful Punks was a very emotional and dark twisted tale. Just the way I like my stories. 4 stars.
