When I read the blurb I just knew I HAD to give this author another go. I LOVE bully romances, and whereas the last "bully romance" I read from this author fell short for me, A Hurt So Sweet made up for it tenfold, and exceeded my expectations! BRAV-FUCKIN-O Betti, my apologies for ever doubting you. The more the story unraveled, the more questions there were. Just when I thought I was figuring it out, BOOM, another secret and I was back to square one with NO FREAKIN CLUE on what was going to happen next. As totally screwed up as this story is, I couldn't get enough of Dexter and Pandora. All the sexual tension, the absolute hate, the lust... SHEESH! “Every fucking time you forget who owns you, I'm going to come back and make you do that again. And I'm going to drink from your pussy like a goddamn tap until you have nothing left to give.”
“Morgana and I were always meant to be together. Our love was story was morbid and bittersweet, but it was ours, and I wouldn’t give it up for anything or anyone.”
“Our situation wasn’t conventional. Fuck, it was toxic, and like an addict, I couldn’t fathom giving it up. I needed her to be here, always. She was the perfect fit for me. There was a thin line between love and obsession, and she’d had me walking it since she was seventeen years old. The worst of things were almost over, and when it was, I would spend the rest of my life trying to make it up to her.”
The devil whispered in our ears. We listened. We obeyed. We sinned. Shall we repent? Or shall we take you down with us?
Surrounded by violence and hatred, I was born with a target on my back. The monsters sought after me, slowly tainting my soul. A person can only withstand so much before they snap. I’m a grenade and they pulled the pin. Tick, tock; the clock’s running out. We all come into this world, sentenced to death. And when he calls, we have to answer. As for me, I’ll be making the calls. I am Death.
Malice: "I am what keeps you grounded. You are what keeps me sane. Together, we are perfect for one another." Obscene: "You're the perfect puppet. No matter how hard I pull on your strings you don't break."
A sadistic king made of darkness and death. A rising queen full of fury and pain. Armies will form, sides will be chosen, and one will conquer the other. Murder, betrayal, political and sexual intrigue enter the treacherous world of ruthless royals.
