I am a huge fan of Bully Romance. They are one of my very favorite tropes to read. So sometimes when they run the same story line over and over and I think I’ve had enough, I still apparently haven’t because I’ve not skipped one I’ve come across. I went into this book thinking and hoping it would be on the dark side especially with the trigger warning. It wasn’t really all that dark. Some crazy shit happened and the trigger warnings are definitely there for a reason, but it wasn’t as dark and depraved as I was hoping it would be. Don’t get me wrong…it was still really good and I am excited to read the next book.
Allie has had a really rough go of it lately. She lost her mom, boyfriend and best friend all in the same day. Without even having time to grieve or deal with the all the shit that was thrown her way, she is shipped off from the only place she has ever known to live with her bio Dad whom she has never even met. Somehow she connives her super rich asshole dad to let her go to public school. Or maybe she convinced his assistant since her Dad is never around. But off to Sun Valley High she goes.
“I have every intention of blending in with the crowd. Being a nobody here at Sun Valley High.”
Allie’s plan to blend in gets shot to hell right away when she gets stuck with Roman as a tour guide her first day. She quickly learns Roman is the leader of the Devils. Along with Dom and Emilio, they are the three smoking hot bad boys that rule the school. Dom is supposed to be this big tough guy but immediately there’s this crazy chemistry between Allie and him. It’s new and foreign to him so he keeps fucking it all up and being an asshole. But I love how she gives him shit right back. He is used to getting what he wants and was not at all prepared for a girl like Allie. He can’t seem to stay away from her no matter how much he puts out there that they are just having some fun.
“She’s become my obsession and even as I tell myself she’s nothing, no one, I dip my head down and capture her lips with mine, desperate to taste her.”
I loved Allie and my heart broke for her with everything she went through. You would think this poor girl has been through enough and then another absolutely devastating blow comes. This is where one of those trigger warnings comes into play. If rape is a trigger for you either pass on this book or skip the chapters like the author suggested. Although I really didn’t think Roman was a bully…at least not to Allie. I did think he was a huge asshole in the aftermath of what happened, regardless if he knew or not. He partially redeemed himself but still has some making up to do. I also loved some of the secondary characters like Aaron, Emilio and Dom. I really, really loved Dom and am hoping his book is next. There is a scene in the book with him that was absolutely heart breaking and I wanted to be right there on the ground with Allie holding him through it all. I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next.
“I shouldn’t be here with him. I shouldn’t let him hold me like this. But I am and no matter how many times I tell myself I need to leave, I stay.”
