It’s a school meant for children whose parents are arms dealers and mafia families, and Aspen went there because her mother believed it’s the only place she could be safe from her father’s enemies.

Quinton is a son of a prominent mob boss and is one of the influential people in the university. He was there to hide from the world and escape the life he was used to. Aspen’s father ratted criminal to the feds, and the mob boss he ratted has someone on the inside and made Aspen’s father go to jail.

The rule of the school is there should be no murder; that’s why Aspen’s mother thinks it will be a safe place for her daughter, protecting her from the people who want her dead. However, bullying and abuse are allowed. Even though there are some family members of the people her father betrayed, they can’t kill her.
The teachers and the head of the school are worse than she thought, and she ends up getting the worst room in the castle. She gets pushed and eats the leftovers as other kids eat good food. Quinton is so angry at her that and wants to pour all his frustration on her.

When Quinton realizes he can control Aspen, he takes the chance. Aspen wishes that the floor could open and swallow her whole. She doesn’t want to be everyone’s attention. She never wanted to cross paths with the person she most feared in the Corium.

At first, Aspen thought he might be her saver, not knowing that he was the worst. Just when she felt the university was her nightmare, she was wrong as more awaited her. She came to the school for protection, but that’ll be the last thing to find.

Quinton has a grudge against her and is ready to make her broken and under his feet. However, things don’t go as planned as he starts getting attracted to Aspen instead. They become enemies turned into lovers making their chemistry intense. When Quinton makes a deal with Aspen, will she agree to it?

Quinton has a habit of using his control over Aspen whenever he feels like it. It wasn’t only Quinton who was bullying; everyone enjoyed it, even the teachers. She was tripped and pushed anytime she came out of her room. If it weren’t for the rule of the Corium that no one should commit murder, she would be dead before the end of the first week in the Corium.

At times, Quinton looks like a good guy attracted to a girl, but his inner thoughts show how he thinks of himself above Aspen and is sure they can’t date for a long period no matter the situation. When things change from bad to worse, Aspen remains strong and perseveres.
