A rollercoaster ride of emotions, wrapped up in an intense storyline. Cruel Intentions had me laughing, crying, shouting, and feeling warm inside. There are twists and turns, and revelations I never saw coming.
I will just say that when this is called a DARK High School Bully Romance it's not a lie - there are some moments that will make you question how you view situations both in the book and real life, and one scene in particular that made even me very uncomfortable at just how dark and twisted some characters were.
The FMC Abigail is such a brave and courageous person, but sometimes I feel like her bravado is naive and over the top. However, there are moments when I feel like she could be part of who we all aim to be as she questions the way she feels and tries to figure out a way to make sense of it all in her head. What I love the MOST about her though is that she doesn't just roll over at the word "Sorry" from anyone, and my favourite part of the book is when she says... "Sorry doesn't magically make everything right... ...You're supposed to have my back. And you. Did. Nothing."
The main male characters are an interesting combination of personalities that all seem to complement one another, and there isn't just a blanket reaction from them. Instead, Siobhan Davis has taken the time to make sure each character she has interwoven into the story is its own entity, which with the amount of supporting characters we have is not an easy feat.
This story has definitely reeled me in, and I'm interested to see where it goes in the next instalment of Rydeville High Elite.
** I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for review consideration **
Omg! What a book! Completely devoured this as it just kept me on the edge of my seat and I had to find out what happens. Loved everything about this book! And boy was it hot. I had a roller-coaster of emotions reading this and that cliffhanger at the end... I know I'll be thinking of this book daily till the next instalment. Amazing read, unique characters, riveting plot and tons of feels. Mind blowing good!
When I first read this book I felt so sorry for Abby and the life she lead, she's had her father was a cruel son of a bitch and her fiance was an animal, her twin brother really wasn't there to protect her when he should have been. Abby is apart of the old elite who run Rydeville High they are a bunch if over privileged kids well that's what I thought but this goes so much deeper, enter the new elite, Cam, Jackson, Sawyer. I never really liked Cam but Jackson I hope he gets his own book just loved him, this story will have your heart racing, trying to work out who you can trust I was so shocked at the end of this book, my heart breaks for Abby all over again, Siobhan is an author with a brilliant mind and you are never too old to enjoy her books, brilliant 💜♥️💔😥😲😤
Best book I have read in a long time. I actually re-read this book 4 days later because I had such a big book hangover. Abby is a strong, fierce and resourceful woman. She takes the crappy hands she is dealt and rolls with it. I fell in love with Cam. It was hard not to. He is a tortured soul with a conflicted feelings. Jackson and Sawyer are great too and provide relief when it’s needed. I cannot wait for the next instalment!
You can read the blurb of the story. So all I am going to say to not give anything away. This is the first book I have read from Siobhan, and she has quickly become one of my favorite authors, I have already pre-ordered the second and third books of this series. Why? Because this book is majorly hot! There is intrigue, manipulation, humiliation, lots of shocking plot twists and lots and lots of sexual content. And of course a very strong intelligent, brave woman lead!
I wasn't really into the whole YA/ Bully romance but WOW... this book is amazing!!! and HOLY CLIFFHANGER!!! i am NOT patiently waiting for the next book but ya'll it's a fantastic read with an awesome storyline. You wont be disappointed!!
Ok so first off, I HATE cliffhangers. Especially when it's a story that has you on the hook. This is a slightly darker bully becomes lover story. One thing that did annoy me was Abby, she's strong & has taken self defense for years, YET she gets abducted three times & attached by another female student. That said it's a good read.
This is a fantastic book with tremendous character development. The story is gripping and the author has not shyed away from gritty topics. Great read cant wait for the next instalment have pre-ordered already!
It's not often I write a review but I'm so drawn to this book!!! I could not put it down, every emotion played out for me from laughing to anger to crying even cursing!!! Very well written and then end well OMG sums it up. Thank you defently onto the second book now!!!
