Thorne Point sunk its claws in me at a young age.

I refused to let its harsh truths snuff out my light.

When an attempt to kidnap me is stopped, I know theyโ€™ll never give up.

The cityโ€™s seedy underbelly wonโ€™t let me escape forever.

My only choice is to run into the arms of monsters for safety.

The Crows have a terrifying reputation, and Levi Astor lives up to it.

But my protective monster will never be worse than the ones who buried their ugliness deep in me.

Our unchallenged rule over this city is crumbling.

Weโ€™ll hunt down the ones behind this and make them pay.

Guarding the senatorโ€™s daughter isnโ€™t on my agenda, yet I couldnโ€™t ignore her if I tried.

Sunshine might break through the shadows, but it will only illuminate what makes me a deadly monster.

Isla Vonn should run in the opposite direction instead of into my arms.

Because everyone fears the Leviathan in Thorne Point.

Loyalty in the Shadows is a dark new adult enemies to lovers college romantic suspense intended for mature readers. This book is the second in the Crowned Crows series following a gritty brotherhood of antihero bad boys and the feisty heroines that capture their hearts. The plot continues across the next novels and each book in the series should be read in order. If youโ€™re not a fan of morally bankrupt book boyfriends, steer clear. This mature new adult romance contains dubious situations, crude language, and intense sexual/violent content that some readers might find triggering or offensive. Please proceed with caution.

Release date likely to be brought forward.

Review :

Eppp, I finally have this book! This author drives me crazy with her heroes and I have been waiting for my man Levi for forever! I mean, LOOK AT THAT COVER. I have been staring at it forever ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

This one was also a standalone from this new world by this author. The plots are connected so I recommend that you read them in order to avoid spoilers of book one. All the books released till now are pretty amazing so definitely recommended to all !

I love these high schools with all the society themes so much. This series is like that only. It's dark but not too much and has that amazing edge of darkness. Levi kept me hooked right from the start and I loved it a lot. Now I am even more excited for the next part and will be eagerly waiting for that one!

Definitely recommending this one to all the dark high school romance loving people out there!
