There was a time Jude Delouxe didnโ€™t hate me, and Iโ€™m fairly certain it was when he didnโ€™t know I existed.

Senior year, I finally caught his eye long enough to throw word vomit at him like the obsessed teenage girl I was.
That was then.
You see, the most wanted guy in school blamed me for losing his second chance with his girlfriend. Ex-girlfriend? Whatever. Point is, the Adonis loved to hate me.

โ€จโ€จIt wasnโ€™t my fault heโ€™d followed me. It wasnโ€™t my fault heโ€™d stared too long and stood a little too close, just daring me to accomplish my wildest dreams.
And it most certainly wasnโ€™t my fault his ex-girlfriend arrived when heโ€™d decided to kiss me back.

โ€จโ€จThen the cruelty began. โ€จIโ€™d thought I could handle it, so long as his lips kept gracing mine and he kept giving me more scorching firsts.
Until he took it too far, and all his carefully kept secrets blew open the doors to a brand new world. A world he was all too familiar with.

Obsession became loathing and fear replaced naivety as Jude was forced to hold my hand and help me navigate a secret society rife with sin and debaucheryโ€”the crรจme de la crรจme of Peridot Island.

If I wasnโ€™t careful, Iโ€™d do more than lose what remained of my heart. My first love and greatest foe wouldnโ€™t be satisfied until heโ€™d devoured my soul, too.

Fern has been obsessively in love with Jude from afar for years. Not only is he the popular good looking guy at Peridot Academy, but he’s also her next-door neighbor who doesn’t notice her, let alone know that she exists.

But when Fern sees Jude and his perfect girlfriend fighting and breaking up for the millionth time, she decides this is her shot.

One stolen kiss is all it takes to change everything…

Ella Fields is one of my one-click, ๐Ÿฆ„ authors! I don’t need the title, I don’t need the blurb, JUST GIVE IT TO ME! Everything she writes, I want to read it! But I must admit… Evil Love wasn’t my favorite. Was it an awful read? Absolutely not. But I did have higher expectations for this one. It started off pretty slow and took me a couple of days to get to thirty percent, which usually doesn’t happen but for some reason, I just wasn’t able to submerge myself into this one like I usually would be and found myself skimming a bit more then I would have liked to.

Although things did pick up at around thirty percent the story didn’t really grab ahold of me until around sixty-ish percent. The “oh my gosh, I can’t put this down” that’s usually there for me… it just wasn’t this time. ๐Ÿ˜• The storyline of the Nightengale society was definitely intriguing and I kept wondering what else was going to happen concerning the society… but again, nothing major REALLY happened with them. I think because this was kind of the introductory book to the series, it may be why it was a bit of a slow start? So, I can’t quite give Evil Love five stars, even though I love Ella and all her words so, soo much, but I would give it a 3.8 ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

โค๏ธ (๐’ฝ) โ„‹โ„ฏ๐“‡โ„ด๐’พ๐“ƒโ„ฏ: Fern Denane is an unusual girl. She’s been sheltered for the majority of her life from the world as well as the society. I wanted to like Fern… I really did. I like my heroines strong, the ones who stand up for themselves (even in bully romances) and that wasn’t Fern. Jude was cruel to her, Jude had a girlfriend and then an ex-girlfriend that he was trying to reconcile with… the bathroom scene at the party… even though that scene was cruel to the MAX and I LOVED it… but that was when I realized my opinion of Fern wasn’t going to change. I wanted her to do what he told her to, but then slap him across the face, bite him, SOMETHING. I just wanted her to have that MOMENT where enough is enough. Don’t get me wrong she does start being like dismissive of him, but all he has to do is get in her space and she melts like putty in his hands.ย ๐Ÿ˜•

I’m usually not into covers that don’t have cover models, I don’t know why, just a personal preference I guess. But I am loving this one. I love that it looks like a journal. I love that you can just tell this is a new adult/high school romance because it looks like a journal/diary that someone has written love and drew kisses and hearts on… and then all of a sudden taped a big ol’ “EVIL” on it. It reminded me of all those times in middle and high school that I drew hearts around my crushes name or our names together (YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT, WE ALL DID IT!) So yeah, even though it’s not the cover porn that I usually prefer, it’s still cover love!
