New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Penelope Douglas delivers an unforgettable romance that toes the fine line between love and hate…
My name is Tate. He doesn’t call me that, though. He would never refer to me by a friendly nickname. No, he’ll barely even speak to me. But he still won’t leave me alone.

We were best friends once. Then he turned on me and made it his mission to ruin my life. I was humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got worse as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to stay out of his way. I even went away for a year just to avoid him.

But I’m done hiding from him now, and there’s no way I’ll allow him to ruin another year. He might not have changed, but I have. It’s time to fight back.

    I’m not one to write reviews but this book was just so bad I have to. Reading it felt like a reading a very poorly written Wattpad story. I had seen so many positive reviews and ppl hyping it up on Tik Tok and it was simply so disappointing.

    This is one of the best stories I have ever read. I seriously could not put it down. Read the entire book in one night. Not many stories had me laughing, crying, angry and loved, like this one. Tate and Jared’s love story is beautiful.

  • High school typical story

    By Sillygurljak
    I mean if you’ve read bully stories you’ve read them all. It was decent, I always enjoy a romance happening in high school maybe because I miss high school lol. I didn’t mind paying $4 for this story.
  • Slow beginning, perfect ending

    ___________________________ Positives: This book was a hard one to read. Not super hard, but hard enough for my emotions for Tate and Jared to go in a full circle 70 times! Their story is not like any bad boy, good girl romance, I’ve read yet. It follows their story from the very beginning with flashbacks to the sweet ending the author brought us. I already can’t wait to read the next book about Jared’s point of view. It’s fast paced with scenes but gives you the right amount of detail. Not to much and not to little. 5 stars. Negatives: I didn’t really like how long it took for Jared and Tate to finally become something. Not until the middle of the book did I actually see progress. Besides that it was an amazing book. 5 stars. Pages: 300 (Apple Books on ipad) ___________________________ Rates 1-5 Plot: 5 Characters: 4 Ending: 5 Beginning: 3 Details: 5 Story overall how it’s told: 5 Sexual tension: 4 Sex scenes: 5 Overall rating: 5 ___________________________ Yes/no/maybe Would I recommend: yes Would I re-read: yes Would I read more books by author: yes (downloading next book now) Would I read more books like this: YES ___________________________

    I’ve been wanting to try one of this author’s book for awhile, and it’s a shame I haven’t read her books sooner. The writing style is really good, not to mention the story itself. I don’t usually read high school stories anymore but I’m glad I read this one. It wasn’t too immature and the sex was tasteful and not super cheesy lol. I’d recommend this to anyone who likes YA romances.
  • Loved it!

    By Jazpichar21
    I really enjoyed reading this book. It was the kind of story that you can’t put down. I loved that Tate was a strong female character despite the hardships of being bullied. I also liked the background story of Jared that helped build his persona. The ending was very cute and I enjoyed it!
