Add to Goodreads:
He was the reprobate king of Dayton high. I was the bitter princess cast out of my kingdom. And we were at war.
It started off with a lie, and a one-night stand gone terribly wrong. Although I knew nothing good would come from my encounter with Bellamy West, the small town’s gorgeous bad boy, I didn’t expect him to throw jet fuel onto the already flaming wreckage of my life. Then step back with a sexy smirk on his face to watch me burn.
And burn I did…
He got me fired.
I got him arrested.
We were enemies until we weren’t. Until one touch went too far, and I found myself craving each dirty word. Every filthy promise.
Bellamy West was no good, and I wanted to be bad.
Screw falling for Prince Charming, I wrote my love story with the villain.
And for that, I paid…

This is the second book in the Dayton High series but can be read as a stand-alone. This one started out smoking hot and heavy with two sexy strangers looking for a night of fun in the back of a van. Perfect start to a book if you ask me. It definitely had my attention right away. What was supposed to be a walk on the wide side turned into a little more than these characters expected.
“It wasn’t just an orgasm: it was an awakening.”
Drew got kicked out of boarding school for something she swears she didn’t do but her Dad is livid. He decides to ship her off to Dayton High and she’s not too happy. From boarding school to a prep school for prison…what else could possibly go wrong? How about running into Mr. Hottie/One Night Stand on her very first day of her own personal hell? Oops.
“I had every intention of taking that invisible, privileged, princess crown and tarnishing every last gem and fuck it if that wasn’t bad news for her.”
Bellamy is the bad boy of Dayton High. The one all the girls are either scared of and secretly want or have already had and he’s tossed them away. He is trouble with a capital T and his eyes are set on the hot new girl who just so happens to be the same girl that lied to him the other night. Drama, crazy chemistry and a sexy as sin bad boy…this school year’s about to get a whole lot more interesting.
“He held my hand, kissed me..I could still feel the heat of his lips branded on mine.”
There was a ton of drama in this book but maybe a tad too much. It was sort of a mess. I loved the push and pull between Bellamy and Drew but didn’t really feel a connection. It also really, really bothered me that Bellamy was constantly calling Drew “Baby Girl.” I get nick names and all but I felt like it was overused. It was cute to start off with and then it began to annoy me. I couldn’t get past it. It was a good read but not my favorite bully romance.
