Hey lovely readers!
Here’s a book review for you! I feel like it’s been forever since I wrote a review. That’s what I get for buying a new house and selling our old one all in the same day. And then moving, my goodness it’s hard work! Any way here we go! Massive thank you to the author for graciously providing me with an e-arc!
“Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen. But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape.
Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world. Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control. Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.
Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancé. I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivaled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious. My life will hang in the balance. But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight.”
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from being a loyal Siobhan Davis reader it is to always be prepared for anything. Be prepared for heartache, laughter, anger, angst, fantastic sexy times, and conflicted feelings. I absolutely love bully romances, they are honestly one of my favorite romance tropes. (I may actually write a post on why I love them, because this is a hot topic these days). So of course I was all about this and I just loved it!
The whole elite group of kids was so fun to read about, getting inside their lives and minds was truly fascinating. Abby’s life is extremely heartbreaking even though from the outside her life seems amazing. I really don’t want to say much about the characters or plot, because I really feel the summary is pretty informative. And giving anything away at all would be a great disservice, because this story has amazing such an amazing plot plus the twist is absolutely phenomenal. Abby is not at all your typical heroine, she’s feisty, clever, and so crafty. Keeping the company she does she must know how to hold her own. You definitely don’t want to mess with her and if you do be prepared to have your ass handed to you.
And then there’s Cam. I can’t even begin to describe how much I loved him. You know right from the start that he is out for revenge, but the question is why? His reasons are always calculated and it’s as if he is programmed to hate Abby. And yet, he finds himself drawn to her. The chemistry between these two was so hot and amazing. You really can’t help but want these two together despite the hatred. And on top of it all, the side characters really give added depth and humor to the entire story. If you love bully romances you definitely need to grab this one! *ARC provided for an honest review*
