    This was an interesting story and it certainly intrigued me, but it was also kind of all over the place and hard to follow. The characters, especially Tristan, changed their emotions so fast it made it difficult to connect with them and honestly with Tristan it made it hard to even like him.

Because fucking no, that will never be okay for me. Second of all, the transition of Tristan the bully to Tristan the Meek happened so suddenly. It made me self conscious that I might've missed a huge chunk of the story when he suddenly wanted to play nice with Kennedy. It came off too unbelievable in my opinion. I wish the author could've done better on this part, rather than relying on the readers' suspension of disbelief, that Tristan's suddenly enamored by Kennedy's wholesomeness (which imo was again poorly explained.) I feel like the hardest thing for an author to do was to make us believe the characters written were human and make us to fall in love with them as they fall in love with each other. Because when they fell in love and I still feel nothing, then the author has kinda failed me in that aspect. The middle part of the story was good though, after the whole bullying bit and some resistance (which admittedly only happened in the first 30% of the book). The whole drama in the end though, God, it pained me. The guy acted stupid a lot. (view spoiler)[I would've imagined if you know your girlfriend's mother is slowly poisoning her or tried to drug you, you would've tried to hell and back to save your girl from her clutch. NOT TO DUMP HER because of your insecurity. (hide spoiler)] I just can't deal with these insecured heroes dammit!

    A compelling new adult highschool romance. I wish the epilogue had the hero and heroine married after finishing college. There was so much drama in their journey to happy ever after the couple earned that extra happiness. The hero's friends were intriguing enough that I hope the author writes their books.

    Refreshing plotline? was it?? The story opens up when Kennedy and her mom moved into this new small town to hide from Kennedy's abusive father. Kennedy sits in a wheelchair due to her unknown disease/undiagnosed disorder, because whenever she stands up she feels dizzy and her head feels like breaking. In other words, she's not paralyzed.

I actually finished reading this early morning, and I go in blind with this and best decision ever, the storyline oddly unusual from all the bully romance that I have read. while I was reading, I did notice that my main issue was the plot device resemblance towards the TV show The Act. Anyways, I truly like the bully aspect, it's a bit of slow-burn IMO, but at the same time, it fits within the story structure. the slow build-up of attraction between our main characters blends the enemies to lover facet, stirring a plot twist and a vast storyline.

    Can someone please explain to me how on fucking earth this author can try to make a guy who torments and bullies someone that is handicapped romantic??

    Not bad. Wish heroine would have stood up for herself abit more especially after he broke up with her. I will not continue with the series though. 3rd book was to be released in June and wasn’t. Author’s FB page states she is postponing it because of Covid (released rom com instead). No updates/posts since July. I won’t invest in characters whose stories go unfinished.

    I enjoyed this read. It was quite different from what I normally expect from this author's work. This book has a much more serious tone and relies heavily on drama, twists and a overall much heavier emotional feel. It is a bully romance that is definitely on the lighter end of the spectrum and I was personally relieved that the book was written that way. We forgive our antiheroes a lot but brutally torturing a girl in a wheelchair would have been simply over the line for me. I could stomach Tris I enjoyed this read.

I could stomach Tristan being a mean jerk but if he had crossed that line it would have been a big issue for me. I really liked Kennedy a lot and my heart ached for her. While he did grow on me, I wish I could have liked Tristan more than I did but honestly, I just spent too much time wanting to smack him to ever get past the like stage. The story was very engaging and will keep you entertained with plenty of intense emotions, secrets and lies as the story unfolds. This is my independent, impartial review.

    Book was little interesting in beginning by the end, I had no interest in it. Twist was obvious and I don't have a problem reading dark romance or bully books but I like my girl characters have spine and male characters not be complete assholes also for them to have chemistry and development. Mishmash of Bully and Ruckus. Book was little interesting in beginning by the end, I had no interest in it.

    Man, I am a grown ass woman, I got to stop reading angst ya novels. The H was a bit of a dick and just I knew I had to wait for redemption. It was particularly dark, the plot twist was a bit expected from the beginning regarding the h. It was a good-ish book!

    Initially, I was attracted to this book due to the stunningly gorgeous cover and the enticing blurb and I found myself fully engaged in the story from page one. This book is a different from the others books that I have read by this author as I’ve mostly enjoyed her romcoms from the Objects of Attraction series.

Told from a dual POV, Ruthless Love is set in high school and is more along the lines of an enemies-to-lovers romance with a light bully element to it. This book was not what I expected and I mean that in a good way. It was an entertaining read with a few surprises that I found to be a tad predictable, but the twists in and of themselves were interesting and unique. The book is relatively low on angst with a bit of drama and steam. As a parent of a daughter with medical issues, I was positively thrilled to read about a heroine with a disability and a strong heroine at that. Kennedy has been isolated due to her medical conditions and being home schooled, but she embraces her newfound freedom as she enrolls in school for her senior year. She is a feisty little spitfire when it comes to Tristan and I love how she doesn’t put up with his nonsense. It took me a little longer to warm up to Tristan. He is your typical arrogant, insanely handsome football star, but there is more to him than that. The two of them make a good couple. I really liked some of the secondary characters and I hope that they each get their own books. Ruthless Love is a well written high school romance complete with likable, well-developed characters, a solid plot, and unique circumstances that kept me entertained until the very end. I received an early complimentary version of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

"Even though she was such a small, frail thing and bound to a chair, there was a kind of energy to her." Kennedy Stills has led a very sheltered life. She's in a wheelchair due to various medical conditions and also in hiding from a bad father. Her mother controls nearly every aspect of her life to keep her safe. However, when she puts herself in the path of Tristan Blackwood, there's very little anyone can do to help her. "You're mine to torment, Wheels. Not his. Not anyone else's. Mine." Tristan Blackwood is the rich bad boy neighbour with a big secret. When he believes that Kennedy is in danger of discovering his secret, he aims to torment her and make her life hell in order to scare her into keeping her mouth shut. However, what starts out as a private campaign against her morphs into something unexpected, but Tristan's not sure what he really has to offer a girl like Kennedy. "She was like the only f*cking mirror in the world clear enough to show me what a piece of shit I was." This was a great read! Tristan is such an a-hole but he had his reasons. He won me over with his little chinks of vulnerability, his thoughtfulness, his jealousy and possessiveness over Kennedy. Kennedy is hella brave! Considering how sheltered she is, she doesn't really lack in confidence. The only thing that made me want to shake her was the seemingly obvious clues to her condition, and what was really going on in her life were all staring her in the face. Nonetheless, I really liked the twists and turns in this story and the happy resolution for them both. An intriguing read that should keep you glued to the pages until the very end.

    "She was like the only fucking mirror in the world clear enough to show me what a piece of shit I was. Maybe that should’ve scared me away, but I liked the sting of it—of seeing who I really was." I was instantly drawn to this cover & the authors name being known to me.....I truly thought I had read some of her work but discovered I was wrong. Nevertheless, I added it to the list without paying a lot of attention to the blurb, which leads me to now.....

Nevertheless, I added it to the list without paying a lot of attention to the blurb, which leads me to now..... Being 100% transparent here, I almost cancelled plans to read/review this because I was terrified at just how intense the bullying with me towards a heroine bound to a wheelchair with a ton of medical problems. I can take A LOT of dark stuff, but that's one line even I can't stomach being crossed. But I had this urge to just TRY it out....I could always stop reading if it went there. So, how was it? Did it cross those lines? Get thrown in the DNF pile? Or did I make it out the other side thankful I gave it that chance? Well....... Overall Story/Plot: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Kennedy: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2 Tristan: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2 Emotional Connection (to characters): ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Angst Meter: 🖤🖤🖤 Made for Each Other Meter: ❤❤❤❤❤ Steamy Meter: 🔥🔥🔥 Book Facts: POV: Dual About: Standalone bully romance featuring the rich & stunning star QB/town hero & his sheltered beautiful neighbor bound to a wheelchair & controlled by her overprotective mother. He sets out to become her nightmare but soon realizes, she might become so much more to him in the process. Safe Read? Depends. The bullying aspect doesn't last very long & is mainly on the tamer side, but there are some other sensitive subjects regarding different parenting "issues" that could be triggering to some.  HEA/HFN/Cliffy: A pretty sudden HFN ending....I really hoped to see more into their future. "The Five": Kennedy: Spunky/fiesty, sheltered, oblivious, brave,   inspiring. Tristan: Broody, complex, protective (of her), alone, self-destructive. Story: Intriguing, angsty, frustrating, sad, funny. Feelings while reading (gifs): Final Thoughts: Positives: The way both leads are written, Marne (I have a unique fondness for her), their back & forth silly/flirty banter, how things didn't end exactly perfectly. Negatives: Sudden/rushed ending, Kennedy's inability to question her "life", Tristan's self-destruction. Writing: By 10% I already knew something major that Kennedy didn't even know herself, but it had been in the back of my mind before reading the first word.....I just got those vibes. (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] The only question I had was why? I had a much tougher time trying to figure out what secret Tristan was hiding so when it is revealed, the "mama" side of me felt very protective over this kid. Where her writing really shined was in the two leads. You would assume that a wheelchair bound heroine with a mom like Kennedy's would be submissive, weak, & docile....but she turned out to be possibly the (or one of the) strongest  heroine(s) I've read about. I knew within the first page I loved her.....she has this spunk, is so positive despite eveything, & is incredibly forgiving but at the same time is so brave & has the backbone I wish so many others in this sub-genre would. Bloom has this way w Tristan that even despite the moments he was quite cruel, you feel sorry for him & want Kennedy to give him a chance. He has so many self-destructive moments that are hard to witness, but at other times you can see without a doubt just what makes him deserving of a girl like Kennedy. Some of his worst moments are truly for the most selfless reasons. What ended up being my fav part of the book was insignificant to the story yet showed just how awesome Kennedy is....her many attempts & fails at coming up with a good name for Tristan & his friends. But just when the rushed/sudden ending was about to result in 4 stars instead of 5, Bloom redeemed herself by creating an ending that wasn't all rainbows & unicorns....despite it being happy, it showcased just how the actions of one person had unfair consequences of their victim(s). And in a story where the love & characters are imperfect, it was the perfect way to send them off. Verdict: This is my first 5 star full-length read so that should tell you exactly how much I think everyone needs to read it. I can't put into words how much I enjoyed this book & LOVED Kennedy & Tristan. I came into this thinking I had it figured out (& in some ways I did), but it ended up being so much more than I could have imagined. Tristan & Kennedy, the dark hero & his wheelchair-bound sidekick, remind you that no one is perfect & love is imperfect. Yet there is a person out there created to be your partner, who has the ability to make you a better human or help you discover the strength you never knew you had......& I loved every minute of their messy yet spectacular journey! “Everything starts with for now. Good stuff graduates into for later. And the best stuff turns into forever.” I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Shh... One More Chapter

    I'll never understand how authors can start so strong then fail to stick the landing. As I said, this book started out strong if not completely obvious. Kennedy moves into a new house with her mother on the outskirts of a mansion and we learn Kennedy is bound to a wheelchair with a bunch of mysterious conditions. Enter Tristian who is o course a total douche. Now, this is a solid set up. Except the moment the characters start interacting it begins to fall apart.

Enter Tristian who is o course a total douche. Now, this is a solid set up. Except the moment the characters start interacting it begins to fall apart. As other reviewers have mentioned, Tristian is all over the place with his personality. He's supposedly "terrible" to her but besides being a little rude I wouldn't call him terrible (IMO that comes later). Within the second interaction, Tristian is coming to her rescue and protecting her. Cassius is also very wish-washy. It's like the author lost the nerve to make him a huge dick. The only stable character is Logan. Now a bunch of drama happens at first but there is zero chemistry or tension with the characters. Their first kiss should have never happened—their second should have been their first. In all honesty it was pretty boring. Now, for the only real terrible thing Tristian did which for me ruined his whole character was the fact that he sexually assaults Kennedy once they are together. There is a moment midway through the book where he wants a BJ in the library. Kennedy says no MULTIPLE times but he still shoves her to her knees and whips it out. Once it's in her mouth she's suddenly OK with it, but that doesn't negate his actions or the fact that he treats her as nothing more than a wet hole after he's supposed to be falling for her. I pretty much skimmed after that. The side dram didn't come as a surprise as I said it was obvious from the 2nd chapter. Side note: can we at least have SOME sort of talk about protection? These 2 just go to town without discussing BC or where his very popular dick has been.

    Kennedy moved with her overprotective mom to a new town, always moving and always homeschooled. On the cusp of turning eighteen, Kennedy is hoping she finally can attend public school and maybe begin a life that is her own not stalled because of her illnesses. When her neighbor peaks her interest, Kennedy takes her wheelchair and goes to introduce herself, what she doesn't expect is the cruelty of Tristan Blackwood.

I liked Kennedy story reminded me of a mix between Bates Motel and Gossip Girl. Had a lot of potential but at times too over the top bullying wise.

    I usually prefer my bully Romance to be of the reverse harem variety so I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book so much. The characters just suck you in and by the time you know it you haven't done any of the work you were supposed to finish and you missed lunch. I figured out Kennedy's illness pretty much from the times she spent that first night away from home so no great mystery there. However I loved the push and pull between Tristan and Kennedy.

Would I have preferred this as a RH? Hell yes! But it was a pretty great read on it's own.

It was a throwback to when I used to read high school romances with some not so dark drama in it when I was a freshman in high school (now I read motorcycle club, dark, NSFW, angsty, non-teenage erotica - so this was really different).

Angst, drama, and a hot football player with an asshole personality. I finished it in one night - I wish it was longer. I'll be reading more from this author.

    Kennedy and her mom have just moved into a new town, and a misunderstanding has the school bully with his sights set on her as a target. This is a well written story which is intense, intriguing, emotional, and with secrets and an unexpected twist, which all had me totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner. In my opinion this is one of the best stories from this gifted author!

    Kennedy and Tristan This is not my normal type of book that I read. I usually don’t read about teenagers. But. I’m definitely glad I did read this book. It is excellent! I felt so sorry for Kennedy! And Tristan, he tried so hard to hide his soft heart! Highly recommend! Loved it!
