Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for Corrupt by Penelope Douglas! I’m so excited to share an interview I had with the characters of Corrupt! Also make sure to check out the fantastic tour giveaway below ❤
On a side note, I freaking LOVED this book – my review will be up as soon as finals are done!
Character Interview: Rika, Michael, and the Horsemen from Corrupt
Hi everyone, thanks for being here today for an interview! As much as you all scare the hell out of me, I’m glad you’re here…
To start off, Rika and Michael, what’s the first thing that draws you to each other?
Rika: I guess it’s like Michael said in the catacombs. He saw the same thing in me that he saw in himself, and I think I didn’t feel so alone anymore. We were both hungry for a life we thought we couldn’t have, and no matter how both of us tried to cover it up, the need was always there. We validated each other.
Michael: Some things can’t be explained.
Rika and Michael, what do you think would’ve happened between you two if Damon, Will, and Kai never got arrested and sent to jail?
Michael: I would’ve claimed her a lot sooner, that I know. The morning after Devils’ Night, I already regretted what I’d said to her at the warehouse. I’d finally let myself get close, and there was no way I’d be able to withstand being near her and not wanting her.
For the Horsemen, what has been your most impressive prank?
Will: You tell her.
Kai: No. We were kids. It’s stupid now.
Will: It was awesome!
Well…we were playing St. James our senior year of high school. It was a home game, and it was a grudge match. There had been fights and some minor vandalism in the past, but that night we won and they didn’t take it well. They broke into our trophy case in the school and stole our shit. So we…
Kai: We stole something of theirs. It was a Catholic school and they had this rule where the cheerleaders had to ride on a separate bus from the players, so we tricked the driver off the bus for a minute, and a…stole… yeah.
Will: *laughing* It was an EPIC night!
Kai: It was a hassle! Parents, coaches, cops…everyone was out searching for them.
Will: And they sure found them. ☺
For everyone, what’s your ideal date night?
Michael: Anything that doesn’t require sitting down.
Kai: Our own private box at a concert
Will: Hide and seek in a library.
Damon: Date night? Are you kidding?
What song best describes yourselves?
Michael: Love the Way You Hate Me
Kai: Jekyll and Hyde
Damon: *blows out smoke*
What’s the thing that scares you the most?
All: Nothing (They won’t answer that in front of each other or even admit it out loud)
Rika and Michael, where do you see yourselves in 5 years?
Rika: We have goals as far as our career goes, but the rest, we don’t think about it. Today is what matters. It’s certain. Tomorrow might not come. As long I’m with him, I don’t really care.
Will, can you tell us anything about Emmy Scott? Why are you in love with her?
I’m not. Who told you that?
Damon, can you give us a little glimpse of what goes on in your head? *bites nails*
We can discuss it in private, if you like.
Damon, what’s going on with you right now? What have you been doing?
What I’ve been doing isn’t nearly as interesting as what I’m planning. Maybe if you’re good, you’ll get to see.
Lastly, Kai, Damon, Will, do you think any of you will get a story of your own? Anytime soon?
Will: When we feel like cooperating, maybe.
Kai: Exactly. I’m enjoying my privacy a little too much right now.

Publication Date: November 17th 2015
Genre: Dark, Erotica, Contemporary Romance
Organized by: As the Pages Turn
I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.
His name is Michael Crist.
My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.
But I noticed him.
I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.
Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.
Because he’s finally noticed me.
Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.
My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.
Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.
In my city.
The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.
We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

Love this! Thanks!
Why don’t we get an answer from Damon about any future stories… There’s hardly anything from him here! I need more Damon!
That’s what surprised me most about the story actually. I am still not sure why I like Damon so much (possibly more than the rest of the guys but in a different way). He is a mystery and I am drawn to that character.
This book is easily one of my top favorites for the year!
I tried, Martina! 😉
