Publisher's Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy comes a brand new dark and twisted bully romance full of secrets and lies …

Whit Lancaster burst into my life like a storm. Dark and thunderous, furious and fierce. Cold, heartless, and devastatingly beautiful, like the statues in our prep school gardens. The school with his family name on the sign. He can do no wrong here. This is his domain.

He’s a menace on campus. Adored and feared. Hated and respected. His taunting words carve into my skin, shredding me to ribbons. Yet his intense gaze scorches my blood, fills me with a longing I don’t understand.

When he comes to my rescue one night, he ends up broken. Bleeding. My instincts scream to leave and let him suffer, but I can’t. I sneak him into my room. Clean him up. Fall for his lies. Let him possess every single part of me until I’m the one left a gasping, broken mess.

Then he leaves me alone in the dead of night, taking my journal with him. Now he knows all my secrets. My hate. My truth. And he promises to use my words against me. I’ll be ruined if my darkest secret gets out. That’s when I strike a bargain with the devil. I’ll let Whit Lancaster ruin me behind closed doors instead.

Things I Wanted to Say (but never did) is a complete standalone. This edgy bully romance contains dark scenes some listeners may find uncomfortable to hear. Listener discretion is advised.

So good!

I have avoided this book for so long, based solely on its length, books that long are daunting to me. But I am so glad that I grabbed the audiobook, because it was amazing. I'm not generally a fan of Joe Arden when the character is this young (he has a great voice for guys in their 30s-40s!) but I actually loved him here, he did something less gruff than normal so I believed him as a teenager. The female narrator was new to me, and she did an amazing job as well.

As far as the storyline goes, it was pretty standard for a HS bully book, but for some reason, I liked it more. And I can't place exactly what it was that made it so good. There were some bits that were predictable, and some things towards the end that didn't sit right with me (like the time jump, which was annoying) but honestly, everything else for the first 70% or so made me so happy that I don't even care. I would love to see more of this world, though I'm not sure there are any side characters worth seeing again besides Whit and Summer, and Monty, so maybe some people we haven't yet been introduced to. Sylvie was at top of my list for her own book until she turned into a wench at the end, and her attitude overrode my need to know what the deal was with her possible Munchausen syndrome or factitious disorder imposed on another by her mother.

*update, these characters appear again in the Arranged Marriage trilogy (start with The Reluctant Bride - they show up in book 2, The Ruthless Groom) which is about Charlotte Lancaster, Whit's cousin.

Loved it!

This was such a well written story, I was entertained the whole time! Normally if a book is over 600 pages I get a bit lazy to finish but not with this one! I didn’t want to put it down. So good!!! Loved summer and whit!
