Betrayal by Sarah Bailey 💕 Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Dark Contemporary Romance)

It all started one dark night. The last night I saw my family. The night I met him. The only man to haunt my every moment.

I witnessed something I was never meant to see.
He took me.
He broke me.
He made me his.
And now he wants to use me to bring down my family.

I was never meant to have her.
The daughter of the scum who stole my life.
I took her.
I broke her.
I made her mine.
And now she'll do anything I say.
One tattooed anti-hero gets caught up in a whirlwind with an innocent heiress. It'll keep you on your toes with its web of lies and secrets.

If you're a fan of dark romance, dive into Betrayal, the first book in the explosive Corrupt Empire Series.

The first few hours were okay. I thought about Gert, James and Peter. Then it became harder to forget Aiden wasn’t just outside. He’d left me snacks and sandwiches. I ate a little when I got hungry and got desperate enough that I had to go in the bucket.
How long had he been gone? I lost all sense of time, beginning to lose my grip on reality. I kept hearing the locks turning in my head but the door never opened. I thought I heard his deep voice whispering in my ear.
“Avery. Avery. Avery.”
I whipped my head around but there was nothing. The cell was empty. I couldn’t take it any longer. Marching over to the door, I banged on it over and over.
“Aiden, please, please, I can’t deal with this anymore. I promise I’ll be good. I promise. Just let me out. I don’t want to be alone anymore.”
Tears fell down my cheeks.
“Aiden. Please. I… I need you.”
The moment those words left my lips, I collapsed on the floor. They were the truth. I did need him. It wasn’t just to end this torment in the cell. I looked forward to seeing him. My beautiful avenging angel.
“I need you,” I sobbed, burying my face in my hands. “I need you.”
When I saw him, I forgot my parents were dead by his hands. All I saw was him. All that hard muscle beneath his clothes which I’d felt pressed up against me when he’d pinned me to the wall. The self-assured way he carried himself. The deadly look in his eyes. Those silver eyes which haunted my every waking moment and even my dreams. Aiden was all of that and so much more. And I was the stupid girl who couldn’t look away.
“Please, Aiden, come back to me.”
I crawled away from the door. The locks rang in my ears. I peered at it, but it didn’t open.
Was I having a mental breakdown?
Had I finally snapped?
I was definitely hearing things that weren’t really there.
“Avery, you are mine. Mine.”
I put my hands over my ears. It had to stop. All of it.
I saw feet in front of me. I looked up and there was my father.
“My little angel. I’ve missed you. Daddy is home now.”
His voice sounded disjointed. I didn’t understand how he was here. He was supposed to be dead. I saw him die.
“You’re not real.”
“Don’t you want to see me, sweetie?”
“No. No, you’re not real. You can’t be.”
“Avery, why didn’t you save me? Why didn’t you stop him?”
No. This couldn’t be happening. I couldn’t have done anything to stop Aiden. No. His eyes looked exactly like my dad’s with those little crinkles in the corners.
“You’re not real! Not real. Please, Aiden. I need Aiden.”
“Aiden killed me. How can you want the man who killed me?”
I put my hands over my eyes. I was hallucinating my own father. This could not be happening.
“Stop. Please stop. Aiden, make it stop.”
“Aiden isn’t here, angel. Aiden can’t save you. Look at me, baby, look at me.”
“No. He can. He can. I need him,” I sobbed. “I need him.”
I was fucking crazy. All of this was a sick twisted dream and I couldn’t get out of it. Was I asleep or was this just guilt? Either way, I needed the stupid vision of my father to go away. He was messing me up even more. I couldn’t take this.
“Look at me, Avery.”
I slowly removed my hands from my eyes. Right between his eyes, a hole started to form, blood pouring out of the wound. I screamed, scrambling backwards until I hit the wall. Lifeless eyes stared back at me.
“Why didn’t you save me?” my father said one last time before he collapsed on the floor.
I huddled my knees up to my chest and buried my face in them, sobbing. It wasn’t real. Nothing was real anymore
All I could think about was Aiden coming back and finding me like this. A mess. No longer able to distinguish between a hallucination and reality.
Is this what he wanted?
Did he want to break me this much?
Seeing my father had well and truly fucked me up.
Why did I even care what Aiden might think?
He caused this. He killed my family. I should be angry with him, except I wasn’t. It didn’t matter if that made me insane. All I wanted right now was him. He was real. I’d find my way back to reality for him.




I wanted to take them all down.
I had everything under control.
Then she walked into my life.
And turned my world completely upside down.
She changed me.
She was my light in the darkness.
I was her avenging angel.
Until I ruined everything.


I wanted to be his everything.
The one who took me.
He showed me their darkest secrets.
He taught me their twisted ways.
I fell for him and fell hard.
I was ready to destroy them all.
Until he destroyed me.

The stakes have been raised. Nothing is what it seems. What will happen everything starts to unravel and long forgotten secrets are exposed?

Innocent. Fragile. Sheltered.
The secrets from the past shattered me.
The lies my family told broke my soul.
Devastation was my only solace.
Until my angel saved me.
He gave me freedom.
And I’d kill for him.


Broken. Battered. Bruised.
My past was always there to haunt me.
My need for destruction ran in my veins.
Salvation was never on the cards.
Until doe eyes walked into my life.
She was my redemption.
And I’d die for her.
