Red Thorns: A Dark New Adult Romance (Thorns Duet Book 1) by Rina Kent


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.
Not me.
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 is part of a duet and is not standalone.

My Review

There is a trigger warning for this book. So please be advised.

There is a short story before this book, and I’m definitely going to go back to read that before the next book is due out.

Naomi is your typical loner, not really into making herself the centre of attention. But her mother wants her to tryout for the cheerleading squad, so Naomi is now a cheerleader, but it’s not her thing! She clashes with the head cheerleader and the her little entourage! Nothing is ever good enough!

Pen pal!! Hmmm 🤔 I’m wondering if your thinking the same thing i am? Is it who you think it might be?

Sebastian has been told often enough that he’s always on show, and always representing the family (grandfather is a retired senator) he’s being groomed for greatness, but there is a side to Sebastian that most people don’t see. And it looks like Naomi might just be the girl to bring it out….

Poor Naomi is the target of bullies, but the next bet is going to shock a lot of people….The bet is reminiscent of the film “Cruel Intentions” Sebastian has to convince Naomi to sleep with him!
Supporting characters……I didn’t like Sebastian’s friend (Reina) I wasn’t keen on her “best friend” she seemed to want to swap sides at the drop of a hat (wanting both friendship with Naomi and being in with the cheerleaders clique)
The story is your typical bad boy gets to ruin a socially awkward virgin!
She’s also got a little crush on Sebastian, but she thinks she can resist his advances. It’s dark, it’s a little twisted. And it will have you wanting to punch certain characters.

I couldn’t put it down. I wanted more….. more of both Sebastian as he fights his feelings for Naomi and her to admit her feelings and her twisted desires.

Cliffhanger ending has me chomping at the bit to read what happens next.

Black Thorns can’t come soon enough… 🖤


Rina Kent is an international bestselling author of everything enemies to lovers romance. 

Darkness is her playground, suspense is her best friend, and twists are her brain’s food. However, she likes to think she’s a romantic at heart in some way, so don’t kill her hopes just yet. 

Her heroes are anti-heroes and villains because she was always the weirdo who fell in love with the guys no one roots for. Her books are sprinkled with a touch of mystery, a healthy dose of angst, a pinch of violence, and lots of intense passion.

Rina spends her private days in a peaceful town in North Africa daydreaming about the next plot idea or laughing like an evil mastermind when those ideas come together.
