Haven’t read the previous novel, Cruel Intentions? Check out my review here!
Genre: Bully Romance
Release Date: August 20, 2019
He thinks he’s broken me. That I’m finally under his complete control. But I’m biding my time, gathering intel, making plans, and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. So, when an unexpected savior appears—offering me a way out—I grasp it with both hands.
But the man I love refuses to let me go, and he’s hell-bent on protecting me at all costs.
Except he’s far too late.
Kaiden’s betrayal fuels the anger flowing through my veins, and now our roles are reversed—I’m the hunter, and he’s my prey. I enjoy torturing him, lying to him, and letting him believe in false truths that were never our reality.
Until the stakes are raised, and I’m forced into playing their game again. Only this time, it’s not just my life hanging in the balance.
I thought he’d done his worst. That he didn’t have the power to hurt me anymore.
But I was wrong.
His depravity knows no bounds, and now, he’s taken everything from me.
This time, it means war, and I’m taking no prisoners.
I’m going to keep this short because there isn’t really much to say other than the obvious based on my one star rating.
The Rydeville High Elite series is a bully romance. I did not know I wasn’t a fan of these types of romances until after I finished the first novel in the series, Cruel Intentions. I rated that novel three stars with the intention of not continuing the series. I was sent the second book for review, so here I am.
Twisted Betrayal is so much more than a bully romance. It’s sick, twisted, and unhealthy. There are so many trigger warnings that I won’t even name them. If something is a trigger, it’s most likely in this novel.
I tried. I really tired with the sequel, but it’s so disturbingly unhealthy. I know not all relationships are perfectly healthy and everyone involved are using the appropriate coping methods, but Twisted Betrayal blows past anything I could consider entertaining. When a character muses on being fucked until she bleeds in a positive light loses me completely.
It’s not for me, but maybe it’s for you.
