Publication Date: August 3rd, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Synopsis: Callum Welsh perfected the art of hating me when we were two kids who believed we’d be forced into marriage.
He thought I wanted it, but my only wish had been for him to leave me alone.
Then one afternoon, he stole my first kiss.
Despite all he’d done, everything changed after that.
As the years passed, our hearts thawed, and he no longer hated me.
In fact, he loved me enough to make me his wife.
Until I ruined everything with one stupid mistake.
That hatred returned in the form of cruel words and even crueler deeds.
But we weren’t kids anymore.
I could handle his brand of venom.
He would be mine again, even if it cost me the remains of my heart.
Warning: contains cheating and an anti-hero who might make you throw your kindle.

Callum Welsh knew he hated Renee from the moment he met her. He bullied her in school. He never let her have one moment of peace or security. Until one day he decided he actually wanted her and her bows. After one kiss, he was hooked and the two connected in deep soul bounding way. Until the mistake. Then Callum’s hatred knew no boundaries. He hurt her in all new sorts of ways. But Renee couldn’t give up. Even if it cost her the last bit of her heart.
“Renee wasn’t all sweet; she was pretty venom wrapped up in a sugary bow. Deceptive yet honest at the same time. Underneath, her layers multiplied in ways she didn’t often let show on the outside.”
This book gutted me. At times I wanted to smack the living poop out of Callum as much as I loved him. Renee had the heart of a saint. My feelings just ran all over the place…page after page. It seemed like it took forever for Callum to thaw out towards Renee in the beginning and then their relationship only spanned a very short time before it just turned toxic. Callum and his stupid pride and immaturity. He broke my heart right along with Renee’s…over and over again. Their story is a true rollercoaster of emotions. But I could not look away. I just knew these two had true love that endures.
This series has all of that angst you felt in college times ten. All of your make ups and break ups. When you have those little pink hearts flying over your head to when you have those tears flowing in a bottomless bucket. All of it. It’s so freaking addictive that I don’t want it to end.
