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.”
Holding On To Forever by Siobhan Davis and S.B Alexander have blown me away with this tragic and emotional, new adult, college romance! This book was sp seamlessly written and just flowed so well that there's no way I would have known it was a collaboration between TWO authors if I hadn't already known. Siobhan is one of my TOP 3 all-time favorite authors and although S.B Alexander is a new to me author, I most definitely wouldn't be upset if these two decided to do another collaboration!
“Even after the horrors, it’s still him who haunts me. It’s him who visits me in my nightmares to remind me he left me there. The further I push him into my subconscious, the more he torments my mind. Archer will always be there. Taunting me with his promises. His sweet words that meant nothing.”
“Once upon a time, a madman desired an angel while her heart belonged to a saint. This time around though, our story will be different. This time, a madman will get his sinner and drag her into his world, revealing all his dark secrets to her that only she has the ability to withstand.”
“War. Love. Life. Death. Wealthy. Stylish. Powerful. Regal. Deviant. Destructive. Dangerous. Deadly. By blood. By oath. Four young men will take charge as their fathers step down. They’ll be the future leaders—heartless and cold. Nothing can change their fate, and nobody can stop their path. This is their destiny.”
“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.”
