Thank you to the author for my complimentary DRC in exchange for my honest review.
“Dreams are exactly that, girl. Dreams. A total waste of energy, and you sure as hell won’t get far in life with that kind of attitude.”
My momma had my life planned out for me, but it wasn’t the life I wanted.
I was nothing but a measly pawn in her evil and twisted games.
And I wanted out… no matter the cost.
Preston Rydel was supposed to be my saviour. Only it turned out he had some evil plans for me too.
As the KING of Rivington Prep, there’s no way he’d ever keep his promise to me. Instead, he has his heart set on destroying me.
There is something about a gritty little love/hate story that is so gratifying! I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started this book, but I wound up with a book that I couldn’t put down, having read it in one sitting.
Sophia is starting college, something her mom told her would never happen. This book starts five years in the past. Sophia and Preston are 14 year old best friends, hiding in the solace of each other in the face of their terrible home lives. Preston always tells Sophia that he will be there for her no matter what. It is them against the world. He promises that the two of them will get out of their nothing town and away from their evil parents together…
That all changes when Sophia wakes in the middle of the night to find her world changed forever… Not only that, but Preston has up and left… All the times he held her close, promising all of their firsts to each other, all of those moments he protected her… They were lies.
This was a great first look into this series. The book leaves you wanting more! I want to know who Sophia and Preston are as adults. I want to know if Preston can soften the hardened shell that he caused Sophia to adapt.
