Life doesn’t promise anything but existence.
Losing Cass proved that.
Everyone thinks I’m crazy.
They called me the one who never overcame the loss of her brother, the outcast, the least likely to succeed.
But what about their lies?
He jumped. He wanted to die. He killed himself.
When will they stop?
Unraveling the secrets they founded this town with seems impossible.
Detangling the bloodlines that weave the very essence of Arcadia Crest might actually kill me.
Forgetting the little details I’ve erased from my memories as a result of love could be the catalyst of my entire story.
Death brought me hatred.
Hatred drove me to them.
They touched me only in secret.
All stories end in blood, but an oath was never part of that equation.

here lives a corpse

Here Lives a Corpse is book one in C.L. Matthews, Here Lies series, and I am utterly OBSESSED beyond belief. The author SLAYED every inch of my soul with the first book in her brand new series and I was left absolutely SPEECHLESS by her words through this dark and twisted storyline and her breathtakingly poetic approach that capture me wholeheartedly. Her storytelling ability will consume you and leave you on the edge the entire time you are lost in this CRAZY chaotic world that she has created for these insane and twisted characters.

Colton Hudson was a true savage and I had the biggest lady boner for her. She is definitely one of my favorite heroines and I could NOT get enough of her feisty banter. Colton's appearance (goth chic with green hair, pink contacts, tattoos and piercings) gave me life and I could picture how just how epic she looked. Her new identity in some ways helped her to cope (just enough to survive) with the death of her older brother, Cassidy, and gain the backbone to avenge his death against the guys she once trusted. Her tormentors aka the heroes of this story stole a special place in my heart. They all have secrets and honestly I cannot wait to find out all the lies they hide. Lennox (Lux) Deleon, Tennison (Ten) Delamore, Ross (Dare) McAllister and Bridger (Ridge) Clemente are all hiding the truth of what really happened to Cassidy Hudson and Colton is determined to discover the truth, no matter what she has to do.

If you are looking for a story with a badass heroine and possessive alpha heroes, then look no further because C.L. Matthews wrote the PERFECT book for you! Although I usually don't read Reverse Harem, the author managed to change my entire perspective on this book trope and now I cannot freaking wait to get my hands on the rest of the books in this series. Luckily we don't have to wait too long for the next book!
