Publisher's Summary

He was more than a bully, he was what living nightmares were made of. It started as a childish game played between two friends, which ended in heartbreak. She knew him once. 

A long time ago they may have even called each other friends. That was before she moved away, before her mother married his father, and before an entire life fell apart. She lost friends, popularity, and a future. This was supposed to be a fresh start, but it was real life hell. 

Vance Preston used to be a poor boy with a soft smile and kind eyes. He used to be her friend. Now he’s God’s gift to women (his words not hers), disgustingly handsome, and filthy rich. He can do whatever he wants, say whatever he wants, and hurt whomever he wants. No one can stop him, and no one dares to. He might as well be god. He dares her to defy him and fight back. He promises he won’t stop until he hurts her. 

But she’s not afraid, because you can’t break something that’s already broken.

Did I just re-read the same book?

I listened to this right after The Bet, and I’m not sure why the Authors chose to go with the same concept of the The Bet? I honestly felt like I was listening to first book all over again. There is an incident between Vance and Ava that left me really uneasy, couldn’t really get past it even when he tried to redeem himself in the end. Overall I devoured this book and Narration was on point. If you liked The Bet, then you'll love this.

Almost Perfect

This one was a best friend to enemy to lovers type of story and what happens when a lie comes between them. I guess the one thing I would say that prevents me from giving it 5 stars across is that the storyline is really close to book 1 The Bet, it makes you feel almost as if you've read the same story but with different characters, the enemies to lovers is slightly different but still based on an assumption where the guy bullies the girl until they learn the truth. Teddy Hamilton and Ava Lucas provide such awesome narration.

Better Than Book One

I liked Vance and Ava’s story so much better than Remington and Jule’s story. Vance’s hatred for Ava made much more sense and it was easier to understand why he hated her. It is gut-wrenching when the lies and deceits come out. You tend to hurt for both of them as they were the innocent ones in all this. The villain is surprising, but at the same time you almost can guess who is at fault.

I really liked Vance’s best friend, Clarke, and I am excited he gets his own story. He was the humor in such a sad story. We also get to find out how Jule’s dad and brother died in this book, which was my complaint about book one since it was a big part of her story.

Teddy and Ava were perfection bringing these characters to life. The only complaint I would have is that the profanity was overboard. I don’t think you need to use the F word every other sentence and sometimes every other word.

4.5 Stars

This audiobook is told in Dual Narration by Teddy Hamilton (who stole the show, as usual) and Ava Lucas.

Vance and Ava used to be friends a long time ago. They haven't seen one another in almost 5 years and he's not thrilled with the reunion. Ava is shocked to discover that Vance is now her new stepbrother and her new nightmare, his fathers lies have painted Ava as the source of all destruction which tore Vance's world apart all those years ago, and he's determined to make her pay. It's all Lies and his fathers attempts at cover-ups and silly teens not communicating which leads to the torment he puts her through while being unable to keep his hands off her. This story is similar to the usual bully stepsibling romances of adultery and danger, got a bit cookie-cutter in some spots but I enjoyed it

Teenage glory

This is clearly written to titillate teenagers and cannot be described at literature. Don’t waste you time on this rubbish.

the female protagonist was a bit winy

she was too selfless for me... I really like this kind of book where drama is really strong..but I prefer when the protagonist are a bit stronger
