Zepp Hunt wasn’t the king of Dayton high school. He was the top of the food chain. And I was next in line to be dragged into the lion’s den. At least that’s what he thought…
Good girls wanted to tame him. Bad girls want to be tainted by him. Everyone bowed down to him. And me?
I hated Zeppelin Hunt with every fiber of my being.
Which was why I stayed away from the arrogant bad boy with tattoos and a rap sheet.
Until I couldn’t.
Until we traded favors, and I owed him three months of my life. I never thought I would end up in his bed, and when I did, I had to remind myself that he hated me as much as I hated him.
Until I didn’t.
Zepp Hunt was no prince, and I absolutely refused to be his damsel in distress…
You never know what you’re going to get with a high school romance…good or not so good. I thought this one was excellent! Lots of emotion but not a lot of angst. The characters pop off the pages and I saw these young men and women in living color. Such tragic lives as trailer trash on the wrong side of town just trying to survive with druggie parents, if that, and taking care of themselves any way they can. The heroine, Monroe, is fabulous. A spunky red-headed firecracker that just wants to graduate with grades good enough for a free ride out of the low-class town she lives in. I love a gal that can throw a punch! She tries to stay in the background and off the radar of the school’s bad boys, Zepp, Hendrix, Wolf and Bellamy. A car boost gone wrong puts her in the path of their king, Zepp. He sees his chance to get close to Monroe even if she hates his guts with his “one and done’’ ways. Zepp is a swoon-worthy bad boy with his tats, muscles and pretty-boy face. The push pull between these two is fantastic. It’s terrific as these two struggle to find their way to love. Neither has any idea how to have a real relationship. She’s leery of his attention and he’s used to girls falling in his lap. The build of their romance seemed authentic and poignant and beautiful. Both of their lives are lived in danger and a few times I feared for their safety especially when the Richie rich kids from the wealthy school are out to get them. I loved these bad boys and their wild antics. There were a few laughs along with the budding romance between Zepp and Roe. Great secondary characters with the bad boy group along with Monroe’s bestie, Jade. It fell off a little at the end, seemed rushed and anticlimactic but overall it was a fantastic story that kept me engaged. I hope there are more stories from this bunch, especially the goofy spaz, Hendrix. And it looks like there’s something there between Jade and Wolf. Loved it!
About Stevie J. Cole:
Stevie J. Cole likes to write realistic stories with raw, gritty characters you should hate but can’t help but to love.
She’s obsessed with rock music, loves sloths, and has an unnatural obsession with British accents.
Her books are not recommended for the faint of heart.
About LP Lovell:
Lauren Lovell is a ginger from England.
She suffers from a total lack of brain to mouth filter and is the friend you have to explain before you introduce her to anyone, and apologise for afterwards.
Lauren loves a mildly…or not so mildly psychopathic hero, and a dark, twisted tale.
If you like like your boys very very bad, then hop on in.
