RUTHLESS: BLACK MOUNTAIN ACADEMY by ARIA COLE & MILA CRAWFORD

“Whatever happens. You. And. Me.”

Bully romances intrigue us, it’s one of those times where fiction should remain fiction as it would be too heart-breaking for the real world. Mila Crawford and Aria Cole’s writing is seamless, and we really enjoyed Ruthless and the dark and angsty romance between a battling Kyler and Madison.

This is your typical bully romance, Kyler is an utter arse, hiding his broken heart behind a tattooed and pierced veneer. Whilst Madison is a sweet naïve girl, she has an inner strength she thoroughly needs to draw on when she meets the anti-hero, she reads about in her books. Their journey is incredibly intense and angst-filled and Kyler’s demons from his past are utterly heart-breaking.

LIAR, LIAR by T.L. MARTIN

‘She watched me before she caught onto me watching her. She listened before she knew I played for her. She was mine before I showed her she was mine. She consumed me before I even touched her.’

Liar Liar by T. L. Martin is a dark standalone high school romance which is not for the fainthearted. Whilst high on drama and angst, the story of Easton and Eva is actually quite beautiful. What begins as something tragic and harrowing is followed by the realisation of a deep connection between them. From incredibly heart-breaking and violent beginnings to a wildly passionate love story of survival. Liar Liar is intensely emotional and upsetting, yet it has a beating heart filled with love against the odds.

In many ways, this dark ‘forbidden’ romance reminded us of the books we read and loved back in the day and it had a familiar aspect which we’ve definitely missed. We couldn’t put this books down; compelled by the writing and the characters. Without question, if you’re a fan of those provoking dark romances that at times are uncomfortable to read you will love Liar Liar by T. L. Martin.
