There is an alternate cover edition for this ASIN here.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Penelope Douglas delivers an unforgettable New Adult romance that toes the fine line between love and hate…
My name is Tate. He doesn't call me that, though. He’ll barely refer to me at all, and he’ll hardly ever 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 worse as time wore on. I even went to Europe 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.
When one brave young woman stands up to her best friend Jared, now tormenter, the consequences go beyond anything either of them ever would have imagined…

Mini Vicious ⭐️

The whole time I read this one I kept thinking about LJ Shen’s Vicious. I mean, there’s almost the same story. Broken, damaged high school teenager boy who bullies the girl he loves.
I don’t really understand why most people who reviewed it before me said “don’t judge me for loving him”. Did anyone ever think of apologizing for loving Vicious? No? Ok then.

Is Jared wrong? YES!
Did Jared break my heart with everything he did and said to Tate. YES!
Is Tate one of the most amazing YA heroines out there? YES!
Is Tate funny and strong, but putting a fight too and being smart about everything? YES!
Was this book worth it having another sleepless night? YES!
Is this story an emotional rollercoaster? YES!
Did it make me laugh? YES!
Did it make me cry? YES!
Did my heart sign in the end? YES!
Did I forgive him for being an alphahole? YES!

If you’re late to this party like I am, you should know that Bully was published many hears before Vicious, but I read Baron Spencer’s story first, fell in love with him first, so it’s really hard now to replace him.

Should you go ahead and read this book? YES!
