EMMY
My fall from grace was one for the books. All it took was his word against mine for everything to topple.
Liar. Slut. Snitch.
Now, I wear my shame like a scarlet letter pinned to my chest.
People say I ruined his life. Except, he’s the one who irrevocably broke me—my heart, my body, my soul…my will to live.
 
STERLING
Like a little coward, she thinks the span of five states is enough to keep her safe. But I know where she is and I’m going to make her pay.
She ruined my best friend’s life. Now…I’m going to ruin her.
One by one, I’ll spill her secrets, until she has nowhere left to turn—except to me, her very own big, bad wolf.

EXCERPT
“Waiting for your next victim?” a cool, dark voice asks from my left.
“What do you want?” I ask without turning around. His voice alone sends shivers down my spine. God only knows what seeing his smug smile and sharp jaw would do to me right now.
Stupidly, I let my guard down tonight. Every single fiber of my being is telling me to run, but I refuse—partly because the thought of making a scene in front of all of these people has my skin feeling tight and itchy, and also because I refuse to give him the satisfaction of seeing me run away… again.
Sterling leans in, his breath tickling my neck and his body warming mine. “I’m just saying. Dressed the way you are, you must be looking for a good time. And I can’t help but wonder…” He trails off, skimming his nose down the column of my throat before scraping his teeth against the sensitive flesh where my neck and shoulder meet.
“Stop it!” I pray for my voice to come out firm and commanding, but seeing as God abandoned me long ago, I sound raw and needy. Which is a lie. I am a lot of things in regard to Sterling Abbot—angry, frustrated, hurt—but definitely not needy.
I try to shoulder-check him, but he bands an arm around my waist and pulls me in closer, bringing my back flush with his front. The feel of our bodies pressed together has my heart slamming against my ribs as arousal and disgust battle for dominance inside of me.
Judging from my roiling gut and damp panties, it’s a tie.
“I don’t really think you mean that, little mouse.”
 
 
 
 
 
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
I started this book at 11 pm and was up until 2 am reading because I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down. Reader beware of trigger warnings, because this book is full of dark themes and the heroine is an abuse survivor.

Emmy’s life has been horrible. Horrible! Betrayed by everyone who was supposed to protect her, namely her mother. The cruel, mean things that have been done to her and said about her nearly broke her, but she arrives at college hoping for a fresh start. And she makes a solid circle of friends in Stella and the guys, people who finally believe her word over that of her stepbrother Rob. But then she sees that her TA is Sterling, Rob’s best friend, who is continuing her stepbrother’s reign of terror.

Except that along the way while making Emmy’s life miserable, Sterling discovers that maybe she wasn’t the liar after all.

The only thing I would have liked to have seen more of was the transition from Emmy mistrusting Sterling to being full-blown trusting relationship. There was plenty of Sterling’s change of heart that was shown to me through his POV, but I would have liked to have had more from Emmy’s side. But otherwise, this book is a gripping bully romance. Realistic? Not likely. But wildly entertaining, and left me with a helluva book hangover.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
