***This novel contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or so numb that you actually felt high? The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between.

Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone.

Except Tatum.

I love her so much that I hate her. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her or anyone else.

So I hurt her. I pushed her away.

But I still need her. The sight of her centers me, and I can pool all of my anger into her. Engaging her, challenging her, bullying her...they are my food, my air, and the last part of me that feels anything human.

But she left. She went to France for a year, and came back a different girl.

Now, when I push, she pushes back.

Val’s Review

Le sigh.

Despite my ambivalence toward the whole same-story-from-HIS-POV thing, (Example: Walking Disaster, Hopeless? No thanks, I’ll pass. Remy? Yes, please may I have another) I loved this book just as much as Bully, if not more.

Yes, bullying is bad, bullying is awful, yadda, yadda, yadda… [Insert valid and thought provoking social commentary here]…

But I loved this story. I love Jared and Tate. I look forward to more from them. Penelope Douglas is an outstanding writer and I look forward to more from her also. In fact, I might have to bully her to write faster…
