Summary

Trapped in a world of sin and sexy alpha angels. Forever defined by my black wings.

My father, King of the Nora, sent me to Noir Reformatory to atone for crimes I didn't commit.

So, what's a girl to do? Escape, obviously.

Except I need allies to accomplish that feat, and no one wants anything to do with King Sefid's daughter. If anything, my claim to the throne has only made running that much harder, and worse, I'm stuck with two hot angels standing in my way.

Auric is my supposed guardian, his white wings marking him as my superior in this deadly playground. Only, I'm his princess, and I refuse to bow to a warrior like him.

And Novak, the notorious Prison King, is hell-bent on teaching me my place. Which he seems to think is beneath him. In his bed.

This prison resembles a training camp for soldiers more than a reformatory for the Fallen. I suspect something nefarious is at play here, but of course no one believes me. I'm the guilty princess with black wings. Well, I'll prove them all wrong. I just hope it isn't too late.

My Name is Princess Layla. I'm innocent. And I do not accept this fate.

Authors' note: This is the beginning of a three-part dark paranormal ménage romance story featuring Layla, Auric, and Novak. This book ends on a cliff-hanger. The Noir Reformatory series is a paranormal prison series written by USA Today best-selling authors Lexi C. Foss and J.R. Thorn writing as Jennifer Thorn.

Amazing multicast narration!

First of all I need to say that the multicast narration was super fantastic I loved all of the voices because they fit each character so well. This is my first time listening to Lisa Zimmerman and I am in love with her voice, and the way she performed was so good, the paced, tone, and emotions all portayed so perfectly. Cassandra Myles is back as Raven with her amazing voice that just fit the character so good. While Gregory Salinas and Kale Williams were so perfect for Novak and Orik, I love their voices and performances so much, they never fail.

And now, the story... I don't know what to say... I'm still processing what I just learnt... I had my theories and suspected somethings... but not this, really, not this. I cannot wait for the next book, because I need to know what's going to happen.

Swooning in Noir Reformatory

Holy goddess this one was amazing. Kale and Gregory with regal British accents? Yeah, I was a goner from the beginning. This is a stunning world and one I hope will be continued in audio!

Non-stop action, mystery and more ...

Whoa, these authors can really make 9-10 hours feel like about 5 minutes. WHERE did my entire evening go? I just devoured this book in one sitting and now I’m dying for Second Offense.

Obviously I just HAD to read on after reading Noir Reformatory: The Beginning as it was beyond addictive. This one starts out right in the thick of the dark, eventful prison setting and wastes no time whatsoever sucking in the reader, keeping on the edge of their seat for the entire time and then leaving them needing more in a brutal cliffie.

Expertly done, of course, by the cliffhanger queens themselves.

There are several mysteries afoot and it often seems like more questions arise than answers … the excitement is non-stop and neither is the action (of various types, if you get my drift 🌶️).

I cannot recommend this enough. Do read this series in order though.
5 stars.

Audio:
This was a full-cast performance and all narrators were brilliant. 5-star performance all around.
Even if you’ve read a print or digital copy, you may want to listen to this one as well. It is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥.

Couldn't finish. Excruciating voices.

The female narrator gets my "Worst Overacting" award. But the male voices were bad, too. Ugh. I want my money back.

Awesome -- We Have Fallen Angels

Noir Reformatory First Offense by Lexi C Foss & J. R. Thorn is Book 1 in the Paranormal Prison Series. Amazing follow up to the prequel. The descriptions of the world gets better and better. Loved the characters Layla, Novik and Auroic. This is fast paced with lots of twists and turns and what a cliffhanger ending. Need to know what happens in the next book in series. Cassandra Myles, Gregory Salinas, Kate Williams, Lisa Zimmerman. These four narrators work well together and brought the story to live. Received an ARC and this is my voluntary review.

if your in to man on man and then woman then

I personally thought the story was good but I am not into the whole man on man and on woman Thang but if you are then this is totally a good book for you. Since I found out that 2 Mills had been together sexually in the past I couldn't read any further. But the story plot seemed to be very interesting just my opinion

So ready for the next book

Sometimes I really want to strangle this author! She is absolutely the Queen of sucking you into a book then leaving you on a cliffhanger! While I truly enjoyed Nior Reformatory:the Beginning, I completely adored this one. It’s a perfect continuation for this series. I’m not sure if there’s a way to read/listen to one of Ms Foss’s books and not fall in love with the characters. I highly recommend starting this series.

I “fell” for this story

I loved the voice overs in this audible. The story itself was relatable and full of suspense and adrenaline pumping goodness! The characters are mouth watering and just full of alpha hotness. The storyline isn’t like your typical angels and demons genre. Lexi put her own twist on the characters and made it unique and all her own. Can’t wait for more!!!

Steamy, action packed, and excellent narration

Duet narration, top notch narrators, and a steamy, mystery and action filled story. What more could you ask for?

How about a broody, sexy, alpha male who hardly speaks, unless he thinks its necessary or worth it? How about a royal guard, conflicted over his charges sudden fallen status, and their already strained history when he walked out of her life without explanation years ago - oh, and yeah, he’s super hot too. Then we have the fallen princess, but she doesn’t understand what she did to fall, and insists that she doesn’t belong in the reformatory. But as the reality of the situation hits, and they are fighting for their lives, more secrets are revealed, and alliances are forged. Not to mention giving in to searing passions.

This is a great book two, bringing in the characters from book 1 exactly at the right amount to pull the stories together, and as we get to the end of the book, we are poised on an explosion of pent up frustration and years and years of secrets and deception. Looking forward to Second Offense!
