Dead girls don’t feel pain. But they like the taste of vengeance. Maybe that’s why I came back to my hometown. Because it sure as hell wasn’t for the surf. But what else was I supposed to do when I found myself in Sunset Cove with twenty bucks to my name, the key to my enemies’ secrets hanging around my neck and a mouth full of grave dirt that wouldn’t wash clean? I hate the Harlequin boys. But this is the perfect opportunity to take what they owe me. Because once upon a time, they broke my heart, stole my life and sent me away from everything I’d ever known. Fox, JJ, Chase and Maverick. The four names tattooed onto my heart more permanently than any of the ink on my skin. They don’t just live in this town anymore, they rule it. And the view here may be beautiful, but the sun, sea and sand hide dark secrets. The gangs. The lies. The violence. It all lurks beneath a veil so thin that once you’ve seen through it, you can never close your eyes to the truth again. But I don’t plan on closing my eyes. I have four devils set in my sights. And this dead girl no longer has anything to lose. This is an enemies to lovers contemporary series where the girl will end up with multiple love interests and all of the characters are in their late twenties. Trigger warning: this series features gangs, violence, dark romance and jealous/possessive themes.

My Review 💋

"Sinner's Playground" is the first book of the "Harlequin Crew" by the best-selling Authors Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti. Told in multiple perspectives , this book was a wild ride of emotions for me!

First of all , if you have never read a book by these authors , then it is time to climb out of that rock you have been living under and get to reading! They have some amazing series ranging from fantasy-bully to high school- bully. The one thing that I can guarantee you their books will have will be heartache and so much Humor with sass! The books are hot AF and don't even get me started on their ANTI-HEROES. It will be a never ending talk on that topic.

Another thing I would like to tell you guys , or rather warn you about will be the Cliffhangers these authors have. You must have read Cliffhangers that make you crazy and send you on a murder spree just to get your hands on the next book , trust me , these authors have Cliffhangers that are much much worse than that! So Beware.

"Sinner's Playground" was a book that literally had everything I looked for in a book when I am about to read it! It was revenge based with a complete sassy heroine who doesn't hesitate to put the heroes in their places whenever they are overstepping their boundaries.

Rogue has to be one of the most sassy characters that I have ever encountered. The things that came out of that woman's mouth were something else and I couldn't help but admire her for her courage and survival techniques. She has so much will even after being betrayed by the four boys whom she gave her heart too. Now she is back in her hometown and now it is the chance of those boys to suffer for what they did to her.

Then there were some of the best male characters that I have ever encountered. JJ was the Joker of the group. He was equal parts hot and Funny and I couldn't help but love him the most. Fox was the broody asshole of the group. He was very very overprotective and borderline obsessive. Which of course my crazy ass found hot!

The next one was Chase. He was the character of the boys whom I loved the least. The shit he pulled throughout the book had me disliking him even more and I hope he redeems himself in the future because his chances of being good are very less in my eyes. Then there was Maverick. He also used to be a part of the Harlequin boys. That is until they all betrayed him and sent him to jail. Now all he wants is their blood on his hands and he is not scared to use Rogue to accomplish that.

The whole book was very long in length and the ending was something that I definitely did not see coming!!! That Cliffhanger was very brutal and had my salivating for more from these characters! I hope the next book gets released soon because something tells me that it is gonna be an even more epic ride than this one! A definite recommendation to all the dark Romance lovers out there , especially the ones who love second chance reverse harem sassy Romance!
