Sunny Shelly’s Review: Like You Hurt, by Kaydence Snow


Like You Hurt by Kaydence Snow is LIVE and FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Complex, angst-filled, unique, and HOT chemistry! Are you ready for Donna’s story?!


What kind of idiot gets on my bad side on his first day at my school? Hendrix Hawthorn is arrogant, cocky, infuriatingly attractive and clearly doesn’t realise I can make his life hell.

Which is exactly what I intend to do… until he shows up in the one place no one knows I go to – the one place that makes me feel alive. Now my reputation is in his hands, but I’ll be damned if I go down without a fight.


What kind of spoiled brat thinks I’ll just fall at her feet like the rest of these jerks? Donna Mead is a stone-cold bitch and I don’t want anything to do with her or her friends.

It’s bad enough I have to finish senior year at Fulton Academy – exactly the kind of place where I made the single biggest mistake of my life. I just want to keep my head down, get decent grades… until she shows up where she doesn’t belong. Now I can’t seem to stop myself from trying to prevent Donna from ruining her life like I did.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Like You Hurt is the second book in the Devilbend Dynasty series by Kaydence Snow. It’s a darker YA romance, set in an elite preppy high school where spoiled rich kids do nasty and bad things. It was good, but I didn’t love Hendrix and Donna as much as I loved Mena and Turner from Like You Care. I thought Donna was a great character in LYC, the way she stood up and protected her cousin. But in this book, her Queen Bee status at the school really comes through and she’s a bully when it comes to new kid Hendrix and how she gets the other students to flat-out ignore him.

Of course, Donna has issues. She’s sneaking off to do very bad things on the weekends, living a bit of a double life. It’s the only thing she feels she is in control of, and she becomes Dark Donna when she chases the high of being the bad girl. Hendrix stumbles upon her secret by accident, and it shifts things between them. As Donna learns, they are more similar than she’d like to admit.

Hendrix has his reasons for being so closed off, as a result of the incident a year ago that caused him to change schools his senior year. But when he sees the path of destruction that Donna is set on, he is always there trying to protect her and keep her as safe as he can. They start out as hate-f**ks, but eventually become so much more.

I just didn’t *get* the feelings between them. I liked the story and the journey that Donna goes through, and how Hendrix is now trying to lead a different life. But I didn’t love them together as a couple. She was mean and nasty, and my opinion of her definitely changed. But again, I liked the story — just not her as a heroine. I’d still like to read the upcoming books in this series because I am definitely intrigued, though.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

She believes sarcasm is the highest form of wit and has the vocabulary of a highly educated, well-read sailor. When she’s not writing, thinking about writing, planning when she can write next, or reading other people’s writing, she loves to travel and learn new things.
