Bad Apple Cover


Senior year is supposed to be the time of your life. Keyword:ย Supposed.ย 

But Iโ€™ve just been shipped off to a new school. Sentenced to hard time deep in the heart of Hicktown, USA.
I left everything behindโ€”my friends, my girl, my band,ย my ambitions.
Besides graduating, I thought there was nothing left to strive for.

Then, I meet her…
Pretty. Preppy. Popular.ย Basic.
Most importantly, daughter of the enemy.

And now I have a new vision…
Rip away her crown.
Knock her off her pedestal.
Wear her down until sheโ€™s stripped bare.
She has no idea whatโ€™s coming for her.

They say the apple doesnโ€™t fall far from the tree, and the Creed family tree is full of bad apples.

But me?

Iโ€™m the most rotten of them all.ย

Confessions 4 Stars

โย ย Your dreams are at your fingertips.ย โž

I’m a HUGE bully romance fan so of course, when I saw the blurb for Bad Appleย the first book in the new Bad Creed Series, by Gemini Jensen I was immediately interested. True Bad Apple Teaser 1and Ransom, I mean come on?! Even their unique names drew me in!ย Jensen is a new to me author so to say I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one would be an understatement. Looking for a high school bully romance full of conflict, angst, passion, and hate?! Well then you have come to the right place, Bad Apple has it all.

True St. Clair is the typical popular girl of Warren High. Queen of the school, captain of the cheerleading team, envied by all, dating the Ken to her Barbie, and the Sheriff’s goodie two shoe daughter.

But when the “Bad Apple” shows up, everything changes.

โ They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, but in this case, the entire tree was full of bad apples. โž

Ransom Creed is the epitome of a “bad apple”. The total bad-boy package with the tattoo’s, piercings, and a tongue so sharp that he can cut you down with it in a heartbeat. After being shipped offย from Nashville to the middle of nowhere land with his Gran and his cousins. Although Ransom isn’t well known around town just yet, his family is. The Creed’s have made a name for themselves and people know to stay the hell out of their way.

Unbeknownst to True, Ransom has it out for her. She’s the daughter of the enemy and he hates every single thing that she and her family stands for. So Ransom makes it his personal vendetta to make a mockery out of her. Knocking her off that pedestal that she’s been placed on top of for so long.

Bad Apple Teaser

โ Ransom freaking Creed. Bully; tyrant: enemy: where good girls go to die: and my eventual downfallโ€ฆ โž

True has no idea why Ransom hates her from the very start. There is a familiarity to him when she looks in his eyes but the animosity, she has no idea where that comes from.

There has to be more then meets the eye here but is True really ready to find out?

The more time Ransom spends around the Princess, the more he sees that she’s not the girl he thought she was. But he has a duty to his family to make the St. Clair’s pay for what happened to his Dad and his Uncle.

Can he just forget all about the history between his family and her’s?

Bad Apple Collage

You guys, I have to be honest here. At first, I really wasn’t sure I was going to like this one. It started off pretty slow and was kind of just your typical bully romance, besides that this time around it’s the poor kid picking on the rich kid not the other way around like it so often is in bully romances these days. BUT then all of a sudden, I was stuck. I could not put it down! Every interaction between True and Ransom was so unpredictable that it kept me flipping pages to find out if this was THE encounter that would change the entire dynamic between them. I wanted to know why he hated her family name so much, what happened to his Dad, why the Sheriff had it out for his family? WHY, WHY, WHY?!

Now, although I really enjoyed this book it took me a little bit to figure out where exactly the story was going. The storyline is a little all over the place. There is just sooo much going on that sometimes I was a little confused on which and whose story I was reading. It seems as if the author had a few different storylines in her head and just decided to go Bad Apple Creed Family Collageahead and put them all in one book. Which is fine if she is planning on a Creed family series, I understand character introductions and all that needs to be made. But I’m hoping with book two, things are a little clearer.

The secondary characters made this book so much MORE for me! Especially Ransom’s family. Their dynamics aren’t the norm for sure and I loved it, and them! Maverick, Slade, Huxley, and even Indie are fabulous characters that are way MORE than just secondary characters so I’m really happy to hear that there are more books coming in this series. I can already tell I won’t be ready to say goodbye to the Creed family after the second part of this book.

โ I’m their trophy. Their accessory. Essentially, I’m their Stepford Daughter. And I loathe every minute of it. Every day I live is a lie. โž

I wasn’t really sure about True in the beginning, she seemed like the kind of “I’m better than you” type of girl I wouldn’t like. But then, the real TRUE came out and you realized that all we really knew about her until then was the surface stuff. The stuff that her parents and everyone elseย expected her to be. Not the real True. The real True is a kick-ass chick that’s hard NOT to like. When she did what she did for Huxley, I knew then she was a friend I would love to have. Which is exactly the kinds of heroines I like to read about.

โย ย That’s right, Princess. Sing for me.ย โž

Bad Apple Creed Teaser

Ransom Fucking Creed, my oh my that boy! The fighting, the smirk, the cockiness. He is a bad boy through and through! Half the time you want to punch him in the face and the other half when he opens up and shows those sweet little parts of him like when he went to run that bath for her… *SIGH* Yea the other half you can’t help but see him for who he really is and fall a little more in love with the guy.

โ Our connection is as strong as nature. It’s an unavoidable undertow, a pulsing energy that pulls me right back in no matter how hard he pushes me away. Impossible to ignore and hopeless to avoid. โžBad Apple Teaser 4

The chemistry, the animosity, the push and pull between Ransom and True. I mean how can you not get sucked into the hate/hate dynamic they have going on?! The steam didn’t completely pick up until around chapter nineteen but there were a lot of “little steams”ย along the way if ya catch my drift, that made it all worth the wait!ย ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ”ฅ

Just when you think you have it all figured it, be prepared to be knocked back on your ass! There’s another twist that I never saw coming. I can NOT wait to see where this story is going because that cliffhanger, it just changed up the ENTIRE book and I NEED to know what happens next with Ransom and True in Bad Things like I NEED my next breath!

โ I’ll be waiting, Bad Apple.ย โž

Like I said this is my first Gemini Jensen book but I am really looking forward to checking out more of her work! If you are a YA/NA, bully romance fan than I most definitely recommend checking out Bad Apple.

โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธย Bad Apples is an excellent bully romance! I WISH I could have given it 5-stars but the general all overness of the plotline affected my rating. As well as how long it took for things to start picking up (around chapter 18-19) but once the story picked up, it took off! I most definitely recommend to YA/NA, bully romance readers!

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅย Again, it took quite a while for the FULL ON steam (chapter 19) but there were quite a few “little steam” scenes along the way that were SPICY and INTENSE! There are only a couple FULL steamy scenes but they are HOT… especially the second one! ๐Ÿ˜

๐ŸŒช๐ŸŒช๐ŸŒชย Cliffhanger Warning: There is most definitely a cliffhanger! Now it’s not a HUGE drop off of a cliffhanger, but it will still have you pissed off that it ended there and ready to get the second book into your hands immediately to find out what happens next!
