Genre: New Adult Bully Romance
What a tease!! A cliffhanger deluxe in this bullying romance. Enthralling story with the bad boy Golden triplets. They’re gorgeous and athletically talented and the kings of the elitist north side. And then there’s south side’s tough girl, Blue. She’s beautiful but her rough family life is challenging as she works to give her sister, Scarlett, a better life. One of the best parts of this story is the poignant, emotional relationship between these sisters. It’s fabulous. Bad boy West has a secret that has him out to break Blue in the worst way. He’s cruel and nasty and dangerously sexy. West and Blue love the madness that happens between them. They love to hate and hate to love. This story surprised me. One of the better high school bullying romances. It starts out a little slow but the unfolding mystery of Blue’s brother, Hunter, kept me turning the pages along with the will they or won’t they…or when will they…between West and Blue. This is a really good nuanced romance that ride the edge of hate love in the best way. The mystery of the triplets awful father and his secrets is another twist in the story that has West in knots. Liar, liar! I liked the Gossip Girl-like Pandora with her/his texting and spilling secrets on both sides of town. Lots of fantastic characters from the other Golden brothers, Sterling and Dane, Blue’s bestie, Jules, Dane’s bestie and secret crush, Joss, Blue’s ex Ricky aka SeXyBeAsT (at this point I’m team sexy beast) the Cypress Prep mean girls, and the horrible parents. And back to that cliffy…no, just no! I need the next book now! Leaving Blue in torment was not nice. Terrific writing has these characters fleshed out nicely and the love/hate romance is suspenseful and HOT. I love the mystery in the story with Hunter and daddy Vin and even Blue’s missing mother. Something up with her. I think there’s so tie to Vin and Hunter’s situation. Only time will tell. I can’t wait for the next installment. A must read!
