I'm not really even sure where to start with this book. I read the warning attached to the book claiming there is abundance of cursing, alpha behavior, and OTT drama. However, Ms. Casey fails to inform the reader there is bullying, slut shaming, gratuitous violence, and an emotionally abusive relationship. Oh yes. No matter how many times you giggle during this book, the relationship between the MCs is abusive.
Similar to Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster in the set up-bad boy who illegally fights and is used to getting what he wants meets a good girl who is emotionally cut off from the world and rejects him and his love.
Sadly, it's all down hill from there. We watch as the hero bullies, insults, and sexually assaults the heroine to show her he likes her. Wait, it gets better. His gives voice to his attraction by calling her derogatory names.
Be still my heart.
The heroine is no better. She's belligerent, verbally and physically abusive to him in return. She makes her feelings known repeatedly that she wants nothing to do with him yet after he beats up a boy who she's friends with for the 3rd time she decides to try being his girlfriend because why fight fate. *head desk* . I think what angered me more then anything is his and her family saw nothing wrong with the way they acted. They just brushed it off because that was just the way this couple is, ya know?
No, I don't know. I don't want to know.
I know this review sounds frivolous but it's really not. This book is so anti romance it isn't even funny. If you looking for a how to manual on abusive YA relationships then here you go. If your looking for a YA romance that celebrates young love and healthy relationships then I suggest you skip this one.
The problem with the book are the female characters, Bronagh and her sister, Branna. They are horrible!! Bronagh is in high school and acts like she is ten years old. She is extremely immature and doesn't think before she verbally assaults everyone who makes her mad. She says hateful, hurtful things with no remorse and then tries to find a way to reason with herself as to why she is right for having said what she did. Bad language doesn't bother me, but Bronagh can't open her mouth without swearing and saying something mean and harmful. On top of that, she's physically violent on an everyday basis. As much as she screams at everyone, she also tries to slap or hit them - or threaten to "kick their arse." The book starts off describing Bronagh as a timid, quiet girl who stays to herself because her parents were killed and she doesn't want to care for anyone and get hurt again. There is no way just the presence of Dominic could cause such a 180 turn around of her emotions. For years she's been silent, now she has to get the last word, loudly and violently. Seriously, how many eighteen year old girls do you know who constantly scream "I hate you" to someone in the middle of school? I bet she says it at least 25 times in this story. Branna assumes she's coming to her sister's rescue on several of occasions, thinking Bronagh is being upset by Dominic. Can you guess how Branna reacts? Yep, the same way as Bronagh by immediately hitting and yelling and never asking a single question. Dominic even has to get stitches one time on his face from Branna attacking him. It was just unbelievably juvenile how they both acted.
Dominic was your typical high school hottie with an attitude. I actually liked his character. Of course, the more Bronagh pushed him away, the more he wanted her. If another guy talked to her or even touched her, he ended up in a fight. Dominic was possessive and sometime over the top, but you expect that behavior from guys. I liked Damien, Dominic's twin, but he's had a really hard time. We get some of his background story, but his book is the last one expected in the series. The other brothers, Ryder, Kane and Alec, are all likeable enough characters as well. (By the way, Branna dates Ryder.)
A number of reviews said this book was funny. I'm afraid I don't think I laughed once. The banter between the characters is not entertaining. It's simply stupid and adolescent. This book could have had potential, but all the drama caused by the girls ruined it to me. Please remember this review is my personal opinion and obviously not the same as everyone else.
Would I recommend this book? No.
Will I read the next book in this series? Nope. Not interested in reliving anything related to Bronagh and Branna.
