SYNOPSIS:
***This novel contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or so numb that you actually felt high? The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between.

Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don’t care about anything or anyone.

Except Tatum.

I love her so much that I hate her. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn’t trust her or anyone else.

So I hurt her. I pushed her away.

But I still need her. The sight of her centers me, and I can pool all of my anger into her. Engaging her, challenging her, bullying her…they are my food, my air, and the last part of me that feels anything human.

But she left. She went to France for a year, and came back a different girl.

Now, when I push, she pushes back.

The story line of this book kept a constant flow through out the book. It moved through the chapters easily without an bumps or turns that was not expected. This book is a great read when the world is at your door and you want to be transported into something soft and romantic.

The settings were vivid and they just jump out at you to take you there in a realistic form. The settings were realistic and anything that happened in this book could happen in real life.

Some of the chapters were sad and you, as the reader, would want to go save one of the characters from the story line that was planned for them.

This is were it ends. The characters are not developed enough for me to feel for them. I felt disappointed that there were not more on the way these characters acted. I, as a reader, could not get into the character’s head and understand why they did what they did for that point in the story line.

Why did Tate change to do something about this? Then, why did Jared do this?

“I’d spent the past two years of high school making her life miserable. Telling a few lies, ruining a few dates, all for my own pleasure. Challenging Tate—making her a high school outcast—made my world go round, but she never fought back. Not until now. Maybe she thought that since she was leaving town, she could throw caution to the wind”

10 Things I Wish I Knew About Being an Author I Didn’t Know Before

I love this topic!

2. I wish I knew the power of blogs.

3. I wish I knew that my parents were going to want to read my work. Ikes!

4. I wish I knew that readers were going to enjoy swag.

5. I wish knew that unpleasant people are out there, and they should be ignored.

6. I wish I knew how to promote.

7. I wish I knew the power of the social media!

8. I wish I got off Facebook more and got my butt writing.

9. I wish hubs got more attention.

10. I sometimes wish my characters weren’t always stomping around my head. Even while I’m teaching my students. Awwwwkward.

BULLY SYNOPSIS:

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. No, he’ll barely even speak to me.

But he still won’t leave me alone.

We were best friends once. Then he turned on me and made it his mission to ruin my life. 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 stay out of his way. I even went to France for a year, just to avoid him.

But I’m done hiding from him now, and there’s no way in hell I’ll allow him to ruin my senior year. He might not have changed, but I have. It’s time to fight back.

*This novel contains adult/mature young adult situations. It is only suitable for ages 18+ due to language, violence, and sexual situations.

**This book is the first in a series but can be read as a STAND ALONE. The next books will focus on side characters from this story.
