4.5 Stars – ***Spoiler Free***
Holy shit, Penelope Douglas, ho-leeeee SHIT.
Seriously though, all I can say:
I want to keep this spoiler free and, frankly, I’m also a little short on time. So this will be short and to the point…in theory.
Cause I honestly have no clue what I will write half the time.
It’s like diarrhea of the
mouth keyboard, really.
But anycray, I was captivated by this book from page one.
Sincerely. Completely enthralled.
I don’t know what it is about Penelope Douglas, but boy can she write some seriously compelling, Grade A Asshole, people.
In fact, she should teach classes on it.
Or lead tour or…something.
Not since my Jared in [book:Bully|20803953] have I encountered such a captivating fucking asshole of the male persuasion.
In fact, the lead H (Michael) here reminded me a lot of Jared.
A total dick of a bully.
But on an even grander scale.
In fact, if you liked Bully, you would probably like this one.
Now, the way the story was laid out is not my favorite format – past/present flashbacks.
But I’ll take it any day over the whole “‘present’ prologue followed by the whole ‘five years earlier’ and now spend the rest of the book working your way back here” bullshit, fuck you very much.
Regardless, this format actually worked for me here and kept me wondering what was going to happen next.
So why not 5 stars, you say?
Well, the build up to some of the more…climatic moments was awesome…however, one of the grand events just didn’t quite live up to the hype for me.
Plus, I thought that the h should have been a little more pissed off when she discovers…certain things.
Like seriously, she kind of glosses over some things that I would have grudge-matched for at LEAST a week.
But whatevs, I’ll take it.
And read it.
Safety Gang Warning: There is a scene in the beginning involving ow; however nothing happens. But there is a threesome scene between H/h and another male. I’m not usually a fan of this, but it worked for me okay here. PM me if you have questions.
