At 50% of this book, I was wanting to

BULLY hooked me from page one, and it felt almost like a night-time teen drama. The story has a bit of everything. It was just enough angst-filled drama for me. I felt I was in deep enough but not too deep, and I liked the pacing of it, too.

And yes, this hero is mean to the heroine, but he does redeem himself for me.

Well written, loved the characters, the plot kept me turning the page, I adore Tate comebacks, I hated Jared at first, but then grew to love him. I did adore him by the end of this book even thou he was such a jack-ass. I loved the way he protects and bullies Tate. So sweet of him.

My Jared:

M they made you miserable and they comes to their senses! A very nice weekend read with emotions flying all over!

“You were my tempest, my thunder cloud, my tree in the downpour. I loved all those things, and I loved you. But now? You’re a fucking drought. I thought that all the assholes drove German cars, but it turns out that pricks in Mustangs can still leave scars”

“Tate, you’re mine, and I’m yours. Every day you’re going to realise that more and more. When you believe it without a doubt, then I’ll have earned your trust”

“I am yours. I just…. wasn’t sure if you were really mine”

“Then I’ll make you sure”

Blurb:

My name is Tate. He doesn’t call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all.

We’re neighbors, and once, we were best friends. But then, one summer, he turned on me and has made it his mission to screw up my life at every opportunity. I’ve been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got more sadistic as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to hide from him. I worried about what was around every corner and behind every door. 

So I left.

I spent a year studying abroad and bathed in the freedom of life without Jared. Now I’m back to finish up high school and get the hell out of here forever. I’m hoping that after a year of breathing room, he’s moved on and forgotten all about me. 

But even if he hasn’t changed, I have. I’m not interested in avoiding him or turning the other cheek anymore. We’re going to go head to head, because neither of us wants to back down.
