A bet turned into a disaster.
Sebastian Weaver is the star quarterback and the college’s heartthrob.
Rich. Handsome. Bastard.
Everyone’s attention flocked toward him and all the girls dreamed to be with him.
At least, not until he made a move on me.
See, I thought I was stronger than Sebastian’s charms.
I thought I could survive being his target.
I thought wrong.
Little did I know that he will make my most twisted fantasies come true.
Fantasies I didn’t know existed...
Red Thorns is a dark new adult book that contains dubious situations some readers might find offensive and/or triggering.
This book is part of a duet and is not standalone.

Plot Summary :
Naomi has always had a crush on Sebastian. The Popular quarterback is something out of a fantasy for her. Not that it matters anyways , because he will never pay attention to her anyways. Until the day he does and nothing will ever be the same again.
Sebastian has so many faces. No one knows the real him. The one he hides from everyone because he knows what will happen when he lets out his beast. Until the day he traps a pretty little prey in his trap. What starts as a bet turns into something much more dangerous , something none of them could have predicted. And now it’s too late for Naomi to run away because once Sebastian shows her his real monster side , no one can save her. She was his , no matter how much she wanted to run away.
Overall Opinion :
OMG. I have read every book by Rina and those who follow my reviews know that I said that Jonathan was Rina's one of the kinkiest characters. Well , ladies , someone much more crazy than that man is here. I first met Sebastian in the truth and Lies duet and Nothing could have prepared me for the real Sebastian. Holy shit , I mean that man can rearrange my insdes anytime , I would gladly volunteer myself lol.
Sebastian is admittedly much more unhinged than all of Rina’s characters. Even much more than Adrian and Aiden. You guys will know what I am talking about when you meet him. The steamy scenes in this book were downright crazy, I mean a few of them had me like - fuck , did that really happen? But yes , It did and there is so much more to come. Poor Naomi never stood a chance against that man lol, He was very very persistent and ruthless .
The book completely had me hooked right from page 1 and I read this one in a single sitting . The ending was crazy and the cliffhanger just about made me chuck my phone at the nearest wall. I need the second book so bad!!!!! We can tell that there is much more to come as a lot of mysteries are still to be uncovered , and I am completely hooked for the whole ride. This duet is totally going to be epic.
Highly recommended to all the dark romance lovers out there! This one is not a bully romance but rather a one that is a dark High school romance with taboo stuff and a whole ton of mysteries! It’s one hell of a ride!
