The title might give you a hint as to what you can expect but I have to say that the true brilliance of the book will not only surreptitiously sneak up on you, it will beat you round the head while it laughs at you for not catching on sooner!!!
For a debut novel this is nothing short of exceptional.
It doesn't rely on sex to keep you hooked- although I have to say some of the scenes are completely mind blowing, it carefully blends in an absolutely killer storyline and Cassia Brightmore; you are one very sick puppy because the twists and turns that you managed to get into this story are simply astonishing.
From the first chapter you will be gasping for more, I couldn't find a paragraph where I felt able to put the bloody book down and just take stock of what I was reading, I was held hostage by it, completely addictive. I had a front row seat at the events that were unfolding and a tiny peek into the dark world of the killer and I my morbid curiosity was in overdrive - the sheer malevolence of the situation had my heart in my mouth and my eyes glued to the screen.

Sheriff Brady James, has the hopes of everyone in Durham Heights resting on his shoulders as he tries to unravel the mystery of just who is behind the recent spate of murders. While others may find that sort of pressure and responsibility daunting, Sheriff James has more than the average lawman's tact and guile in his locker - this dominant man has it, like everything else he commands completely under control - and I bloody loved him!!
Jesus, he was so completely alpha that it wasn't even funny - he oozed and yes, I do mean oozed power, charm and complete ( total and utter) control- Cassia - you are an evil wench - Brady James has just rocked my ever so neat Book Boyfriends List - and I am aghast!

I've heard a lot of good things about Cassia Brightmore. I've been wanting to get to grips with something by her for a while now.
So, while I had a break in my schedule and a few days off work I decided to delve in.
Malevolent sounded right up my street...Dark and dangerous, sexy, suspenseful, thrilling...everything I look for in a good book.
While it was all those things, at the same time,for me, it fell a bit flat.
I wish it was a little bit longer, I wish we could get to know everyone a little bit better, dig a bit deeper. Things just felt a bit too shallow for me.
Don't get me wrong, I had a few tears. I was shocked at certain parts, and awed at others. It is a good read, just not what I had though it would be.

Wow !! This is Cassia Brightmore's debut novel and it is brilliant !! I read it in one sitting, I couldn't drag my eye's away from the book. Gwynn Woods is running from a secret and stops at a small town run by Sheriff Brady. She only plans on stopping a couple of days but when she has the pleasure of meeting Brady they have an instant attraction and things change for her over night. In the meantime Sheriff Brady has his own problems in dealing with a serial killer that is lurking in his town, killing young girls. This book is addictive, exciting, dark, romantic, sexy and sweet. It's a thriller at it's best and a fantastic book to read. It will keep you on your toes, you WILL NOT want to put it down and the best of all I never even guessed the plot and the end was a totally surprise for me !!! Cassie Brightmore has just stepped up as one of my favourite authors to read in the future. So very well done !!!!!!!!!!!

Omg !! this is Cassia Brightmore's first book??? I can't wait to read more :)

Malevolent is dark and twisted tale about serial killer. Who is preying on small town in Louisiana. Young women are going missing and been found brutally murdered...

Sexy Sheriff Brady will stop at nothing to find and apprehend this killer. To put a stop to all the heart ache and misery in his town....

Gwyn Woods is passing through Durham Heights. She's on the run from her abusive ex and looking for place to start over. The owner of the local diner offers her a job and she decides to stay. Not knowing anything about the dark cloud that is hanging over this small town..

When Gwyn meets Brady sparks fly, and both are instantly attracted to one another....

BUT nobody has a clue who could be doing all these crazy things? Where the killer is keeping the victims for weeks? Who will be next to be taken? Are they safe in their own homes?...

This is a book you MUST read and experience for yourself. Congratulations Cassia on this fantastic debut novel :)

This first book from The Darkness Series is aptly named and is definitely not a sweet romance. From the opening first chapter you're captured by pure sadistic evil. Unfortunately, the insta-love relationship between the small town's Sheriff, Brady James and Gwyn Woods, the escaping abuse victim spoilt the effect. I felt no chemistry between the two leads..just sex, and considering the past she was running from...that happened far too quickly to be believable. Otherwise, with a few twists and turns along the way, the dark, disturbing storyline was a page turner. Not for the faint hearted.
