From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Penelope Douglas comes a companion novel to Bully.
This is Jared’s story.
Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or numb to all emotions? The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between. Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone.
I love her so much that I hate her. I hate that I can't let her go. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her—or anyone else. So I hurt her. I pushed her away. But I still need her. She centers me. Engaging her, challenging her, pushing her—it’s the one last part of me that feels anything anymore.
But then she went and screwed everything up. She left for a year and came back a different girl. Now, when I push, she pushes back…and I’m not sure either one of us will ever be the same.
Includes a teaser for RIVAL, the next unforgettable novel from Penelope Douglas….

It took me awhile to start this book after I read Bully to be honest. I always thought books from guy’s POV are boring or that going through the same story again is not my cup of tea, but, I was kinda wrong. Damn, I’ve always loved Bully and Jared, and seeing the story from his POV was everything I’ve ever wanted, almost. I would give it 5 starts if—we heard more about his story at his dad that led him to who he was. And if the story wasn’t the literal same story as Bully, cause it was like the same book just a few extra scenes and new scenes (which I’m GRATEFUL FOR) but had we heard more of him that summer it would’ve been perfect! Also the end where we heard Jared’s speech, was cute and I liked it, BUT, let’s be honest here, that’s not Jared. He didn’t even want to dance in front of anyone because he thought it was too personal at Homecoming? What about his speech to Tate? Wasn’t that too damn personal? He went from badass to teddy bear in one second. Guess love does that? But does it really? Change one’s personality so quick? Hahaha. Anyways. Overall I still loved this book with all my heart and the characters as well, though they can all be disappointing. This book is everything!!!!
