Book Review: Bully

Bully (Fall Away #1) by Penelope Douglas: NEW ADULT ROMANCE--Bully (Book 1 in the Fall Away Series)

My name is Tate. He doesn't call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all. 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've been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got more sadistic as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to stay out of his way. I even went to France for a year, just to avoid him.

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

*This novel contains adult/mature young adult situations. It is only suitable for ages 18+ due to language, violence, and sexual situations.

TeriLyn's thoughts: I liked Bully. I didn't love it. The story was a tad juvenile for my taste in books. However, I thought the plot was original and well written. Jared's motives were that of a true bully; irrational behavior based on his own life issues. Tate fighting back go a little out of hand but overall I thought she was a good character. The race that he asks her to drive was my favorite scene, or rather any of the scenes where he shows some vulnerability. I was happy with how the mess at the end turned out. This story takes place in high school and it was hard for me to find any connection.
