Bully by Penelope Douglas

Bully (Fall Away, #1)

by Penelope Douglas

My name is Tate.

He doesn't call me that, though. He would never refer to me by a friendly nickname. No, he'll barely even 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, and I made myself sick trying to stay out of his way. I even went to France for a year, just to avoid him.

But I'm done hiding from him now, and there's no way in hell I'll allow him to ruin another year. He might not have changed, but I have. It's time to fight back.

For fans of Abbi Glines and Colleen Hoover comes the next big name in New Adult romance

Praise for Bully:

'A wonderfully addictive read that kept my heart racing from start to finish. I could not put it down!' Aesta's Book Blog

Freaking 5/5

First time to read a book from this author and it was superb!


I started reading this at 12am and finished at 4am same day! so yeah, I spent atleast 4 hours because it's really a page-turner!

I like the personality of each characters, how Jared seem to be confusing and at the same time annoying. Tate surprises us with her comeback and the way she answered Madoc and Jared is empowering. I like the plot twist - the author made us difficult to trust Jared too. At first, you know he's being sweet and sincere but then he'll do something which leaves us freaking pissed at him and we can't just trust him (we can relate to you, Tate!) , I also thought the scandal was plotted by Jared but no.

I highly recommend this book! Specially the "Until You", POV of Jared - related to Bully but with a little twist and ending
