Top 40 Amazon Best Seller 

From Wall Street Journal best-selling author Giana Darling comes an age gap, forbidden romance between an ex-con MC President and the daughter of the town’s mayor....

I was a good girl.
I ate my vegetables, volunteered at the local autism centre, and sat in the front pew of church every Sunday.
Then, I got cancer.
What the hell kind of reward was that for a boring life well lived?
I was a 17-year-old paradigm of virtue, and I was tired of it.
So, when I finally ran into the man I'd been writing to since he saved my life as a little girl and he offered to show me the dark side of life before I left it for good, I said yes.
Only, I didn't know that Zeus Garro was the President of The Fallen MC and when you made a deal with a man who is worse than the devil, there was no going back....

This is Zeus Garro's story from Lessons In Corruption. A stand-alone in The Fallen Men Series.

Perfect narration

I really liked this story. I didn’t listen to the first book because it was narrated by only a female. This is a MC series and I know there are a couple of women narrators that don’t do well for men voices, so I didn’t want to waste a credit. But I love Troy Duran so I bought the third book. I hope it’s as good as this one.

Fanfreakingtastic!!!!

I skipped this book for so long because I was afraid of the Cancer aspect but I was so wrong. Cancer doesn't ruin this book it makes the book! So if you're avoiding because you think the cancer makes it too sad or not sexy, trust me when I tell u to just go for it. You'll be glad you did. Zeus and LouLou became one of my favorite age gap couples, I love that you get so much raw and gritty mc life with it. Im amazed that Giana Darling managed to avoid all the things I hate about romance, no skipping years to make LouLou older, no making Zues a sap, and many more. Jason Clarke is one of my favorite narrators and he killed it and sounded sexy af doing it but for me Desiree Ketchum embodied little Lou and made her come to life. Worth a credit I'll definitely listen to it multiple times

MC, age gap PERFECTION!

This is Giana Darling’s BEST writing to date. Zeus and LouLou’s story is not one I’d usually pick up due to the 19 year age gap but I’m telling you it worked so well and Giana is a brilliant writer when it comes to the age gaps trope! There was nothing about it that felt wrong. It was beautifully developed and from the moment he rescues her from the time she was a little girl he became her protector and an unbreakable bond was formed. I adored the letter writing between Lou & Zeus and their sweet friendship was formed. At a young age LouLou was diagnosed with cancer. She beats it and by the time she is 17 years old she is a fiery, confident, sassy young woman that had to grow up way to fast fighting her cancer and fending for herself because of two parents that barely paid attention to her and were more worried about high society life than their own daughter.

The love, passion and intimacy between LouLou and Zeus was next level! It is unique, beautiful and so perfect for them. The spice level in this book is top notch. Some of the hottest, steamiest scenes I’ve EVER read.

By the end of Lessons in Corruption I was left feeling a little disappointed in the action. It was very meek for an MC book. When I pick up an MC book I except there to be suspense, action, murder and mayhem and wow did Giana step it up in this one! There was so much going on. Trust and loyalty within the club’s members was put into question, a kidnapping, heavy violence and danger at every turn. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire book! I cannot wait for Zeus’ daughter Harleigh Rose’s book next! I already know I’m in for an intense angsty ride and I am READY!

Jason Clarke and Desiree Ketchum narrate this book and their voices perfectly depict these characters. I couldn’t get enough of Jason Clarke with his sexy growl and rasp and the way his voice bleeds all the emotions, whether lust, love, loyalty, danger, fear or protection I felt it ALL! Desiree did a phenomenal job voicing LouLou. Her pitch, tone and delivery was spot on. I loved the way she changes the pitch of her voice when voicing a young LouLou versus her present age. This story is utter perfection. The writing and the narration was superbly done and would give this more than five stars if I could!

ALL The Feels!!

I was excited about this book when I was only halfway through the first one of the series. I’m not at all disappointed! It was so good! Be prepared, it will take you through all the emotions at one point or other.
The narrators did well and the storyline continues and gets better from the last book. Definitely worth the credit!

Epic age gap romance!

When I saw Welcome to the Dark Side had an audiobook, I freaked! I am obsessed with this series and this book in particular. Jason Clarke and Desiree Ketchum did a fantastic job bringing Zeus and LouLou to life!

Zeus and LouLou have an interesting start to their relationship. They start out as friends, penpals, and with much time, it becomes more. I know some people are going to have an issue with the nineteen year age gap, but it didn’t bother me at all. I mean, yeah in real life, but this is fiction and I’m totally here for it in my books.

I loved how much Lou and Zeus loved each other. I never ever questioned their love or loyalty. He was her monster and she was his angel and I loved them so much together. I also loved Zeus’s family and there were moments I cried buckets and others I was so happy- this one was an emotional rollercoaster and this review is really rambley… but all I really want to say is I loved this book so much and I highly recommend to anyone who’s looking for a great biker romance

Exceeds the hype 5 🌟

Wow. This was so good. The writing was great. I wish Sons of Anarchy was as well written as this.
The characters are well developed, logical, likeable and cool. The taboo aspect between Lou and Zeus is there and it kicks up the heat…but it’s also a written in the stars connection that makes it beautiful.
We get to reconnect with King and Cress and we also get to meet more of the guys.
The plot was good. The story made sense. It will hit you in the feels and it will warm your heart.
The narration was excellent. Both Desiree and Jason did a fabulous job.
Loved it. Can’t wait to listen to the rest.

Brilliantly dark-twisted-dirty-delicious forbidden

Dark, dirty, so very wrong but it just works. This is an age gap romance with a motorcycle spin on Romeo & Juliet. Be warned - it's dark and super-super dirty, but I LOVED IT!! Brilliantly dark-twisted-dirty-delicious MC age-gaps - Welcome to the Dark Side will burn you to the ground! Performances by Jason Clarke and Desiree Ketchum are nothing short of fantastically brilliant!

The Best Guardian Monster

I have been obsessed with Zeus Garro since I first read him and to hear him come to life on audio has been the biggest treat.
He is larger then life and the perfect man to lead the Fallen. He can only be somewhat tamed by his little warrior and it is a breathtaking sight.
I highly recommend this novel. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Great Narration

I loved the narration of this novel. It was fantastic to hear some of my favorite characters come to life and their voices were perfect. I experienced the chemistry and tension on a different level even though I knew where the story was going.

W O W

Giana has such a beautiful writing style. Some of the story is harsh and gritty but the words she uses literally feed my soul 💗.
I love how she finds beauty in flaws.
The fallen men are definitely my favourite series, I’ve read all her books, and was wondering how the narrators would manage to portray the characters I have come to love. They did a brilliant job and really bought them to life. I know I will listen to this time and again. Thank you Giana

Okay… but Something was missing

Good biker story, great age gap…. buuut
I felt like something was missing. Especially some detailed smut. When you write more details about a funeral 😭 then the smut, it’s just not dying it for me…
Sorry a wanted so much to love this one

Wow

This story was explosive. I loved it from the start. Zeus was such a strong character. With lots happening in the book, side characters working behind the scenes. It kept me enthralled till the end.
Narration was awesome too.
