Thorne by Ketley Allison is coming July 29th!
About ThorneThe moment I stepped into Winthorpe High, I was branded as the new girl who stole somebody else’s life.
Thorne Briar, ruler of the school, keeper of underground secrets, marks me as his the instant the rumors start, but it’s not to protect me.
No, he wants to punish me for being here, wrap fear around my neck until I run, and smile while he chases me down.
My aim was to blend in, get the grades, stay busy with extra-curriculars, all while pretending my own problems weren’t blowing up behind the scenes. Thorne makes it impossible.
The only way for me to survive is to find out what dirty little secrets Thorne keeps to himself.
So, I follow him into the darker corners of the academy, the place where they make college hazings look like child’s play.
I watch the pleasure spark in his eyes as he does it. The joy he has over bringing pain.
What makes me most ashamed is … I like watching him.
If I’m not careful, Thorne will capitalize on that curiosity, and he will squeeze my heart until it bleeds.

About Ketley Allison
Ketley has always been a romantic at heart. That passion ignited when she realized she could put those dreams into words and her soul into characters. Ketley was born in Canada, moved to Australia when she was thirteen, to California when she was twenty, and finally to New York to attend law school, but most of that time was spent sitting in coffee shops and wine bars thinking of her next book.
Her other passions include coffee, wine, Big Macs, her cat, and her husband, possibly in that order.
