"I was hooked right from the beginning and couldn't wait to see where it would lead. It's different from any bully romance I've read before. The two main characters have amazing chemistry and I love many of the side characters as well!" --Ashley, Goodreads Reviewer
"Bad Apple was such an exhilarating book. There was so much heat, hate, and passion. This book had me gripping the edge of my seat, while waiting with anticipation of what was going to unfold...Jensen's attention to detail is enthralling. Her writing has the ability to put you right there, in the characters shoes." --Kaela, Goodreads Reviewer
"Even after reading the blurb, I am not sure if I was completely ready for the punch that this book packs...Jensen creates an interesting story that hooked me from the very first page...There are definitely a few times that my jaw dropped, not expecting them to happen." --Ga Books LoverX, Goodreads Blogger/Reviewer

The back and forth is definitely entertaining and even though he hates her there is definitely some attraction going on there!...there was never a dull moment while reading trying to figure out what came next between these two!" --Nikitasbookreviews
"Looking for a high school bully romance full of conflict, angst, passion, and hate?!

I don't want to give anything away but you need to meet Ransom and True. I need the next book like yesterday and I can't wait for more about all of these characters.
"His gaze is penetrating—mesmerizing—like I’m the bug who’s been caught in the spider’s web. But when the spider comes for me, I’m too in awe to fight back, observing every dangerously precise move he makes."
True is starting her final year of high school. She is a cheerleader who people look up to. Always feeling the pressure to be perfect, both from her family as well as her peers. She has the perfect boyfriend, a great best friend, and looking forward to her final year of high school. Until the tattooed bad boy name Ransom Creed walks into her class. The creed family is known in her town as the family who causes trouble. True has dealt with the three Creed siblings at high school, but Ransom showing up in her class was completely unexpected. He is one of their cousins and has just moved to her town. He hates her and seems to have some vendetta against her, but she had no idea why. Based on the way he treats her and bullies her, she should hate him, she should be running from him and by no means should she find him attractive. But regardless of how much of a jerk he is, she cannot deny how hot he is. Will she find out why he hates her? Will the growing tension between the two of them finally come to a head? And when it does, what will happen next?
I really loved this book. True is the typical cheerleader who people look up to, girls want to be like her, and she just seems perfect. When first meeting her I was a little unsure of her, but you soon see that there is so much more to her. I honestly felt bad for her, knowing how much pressure she was under, how much her parents expected of her and to deal with this bully at the same time. I loved her character, her ability to not back down.
Ransom was a complete jerk, but I loved him. He has not had an easy life and he is just angry, and you can understand why given his family life, losing his dad and his mother being the way she is. But deep down I think there is so much more to him under all of the anger and bitterness.
There was this push and pull between Ransom and True that I loved. Ransom pretending, he doesn’t care yet will do anything to piss True. The tension between them just kept building and building and I wanted for that moment when it would finally explode. And when it did I loved it!!! I waited for that moment and when it came it was perfection!!!
Bad Apple is filled with angst, a bit of suspense, a bad boy hero who is both dark and angry, chemistry that is off the charts and a storyline that had me from the very beginning. The writing was fantastic. I will warn you that this does end in a cliffhanger. There is still so much more story to tell and I cannot wait to see what happens.
New Adult, Contemporary Romance, High School Bully
First Person, dual-POV
Book #1 of the Bad Apple duet, beginning of the Bad Creed Series
"Dethrone the princess. Rip that cushy pedestal from beneath her toned little ass and ensure when she falls, it’s hard enough for her to break something."
WHAT HAS REALLY WORKED FOR ME
Addictiveness: 5/5 This book hooked me from the beginning until the end. it kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what would come next. As addictive as chocolate!!!
Character: hero 5/5, heroine 4.5/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5 Characters were multidimensional, with interest layers to them. They have shown personal growth throughout the story and they were easy to connect and understand.
Ransom was bad. He has had a tough life and has been holding a grudge for a long time. At the same time, even though being a bad boy, Ransom truly loved his family and made everything for them. Life has made him tough, but family has kept him grounded and with lots of redeemable qualities. He has shown personal growth and I’m expecting for him to becoming an even better version of himself on the next book.
True was good. Even though she was never completely herself because she was a consequence of her upbringing, True was aware of her faults and was searching for a way out of the place she was stuck on. She was sweet, caring, loyal and trying to fit in. I’m certain she will becoming something amazing on the second part of the duet.
So many interesting characters… I love all the Creeds and their friends. I also like True’s best friend and would love to read their stories.
Villains… maybe one has been created by the end of the book, but mostly the conflict in this book is between the main characters and a past that they weren’t even part of.
All characters were easy to love, connect and understand.
Cover: art 4.5/5, title 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. I love how this cover has being made for this particular story. We can see Ransom at the cover with his cigarette and beanie hat, even though I’ve missed the piercing and gauges. I like the colors and font used here. The title is perfect for the story and very meaningful. I would easily buy this book by its cover, without needing to read the blurb!
Freshness: 4/5 This was a bully romance with an original concept. It didn’t feel like all of the others out there, even though it didn’t bring anything exceptionally out-of-the-box. As fresh as ice cream.
Plot: believable 5/5, conflict 5/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 3/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 4/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 4/5, twists 5/5 Good opening and cliffhanger at the end. I love the conflict and how it was explored. I think the subplots were well created and they have added something special to the story. I wasn’t expecting all the twists and turns this story hand and was pleasantly surprised. The pace was great and kept me at the edge of my seat. Very high level of enjoyment!
Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 4/5 I loved it. Not only their chemistry and attraction were believable but their hate/love relationship was well developed. The author created an amazing background for the characters and the smut was hot. Passionate love!!!
Writing Style: 5/5 Crafty writing! Amazing plot with incredible characters. Believable romance with mouth-watering steamy scenes. Clean, cohesive writing without any major loopholes. Interesting cliffhanger that kept me curious for what comes next!
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER
I don’t really know. I have truly enjoyed the story and would have read the second book right now, if it was already out.
If I have to be really picky I must say I was a bit confused with True’s reasoning for her relationship and her impassivity towards her life.
The author was very crafty writing this book. She didn’t created crazy conflicts leaving the bullying as simple as a family hate. She managed to keep the story interesting by creating well written subplots and by offering unexpected twists to the story.
I can’t wait to read the second part of the duet!
32.5/35 STARS – 4.5 STARS (between 31.5 stars and 33 stars)
Addictiveness: 5 Character: 4.5 Cover: 4.5 Freshness: 4 Plot: 4.5 Romance: 5 Writing Style: 5
Would I recommend? Sure. If you like high school bully romance, this is a great option.
Would I re-read this book/series? Yes. I’m certain I will be rereading this book as soon as the second one comes out.
Would I read more from the author? Yes. In fact, I’m really looking forward to.
You may read this because you like the bully romance; you SHOULD read this because you enjoy easy to love characters; you MUST read this for an amazingly constructed plot!!!
