He stole my first kiss… and now he thinks everything else is his.
They all want a piece of me, but I will not bend or break for them.
No one refuses the king.
One case of mistaken identity and a hasty kiss turned my world upside down.
The new girl refused me. Not only that, she threw down the gauntlet. That won’t stand. No one ever says no to me. This school is mine and she’ll learn her place as a loyal follower or her life is going up in flames.
I’ll make her say yes. She’ll be screaming it before I’m finished breaking her.
Warning: Wicked saint is a dark new adult high school bully romance intended for readers 18+. This book is part of a series but can be enjoyed as a standalone. This mature new adult romance contains dubious situations and intense sexual/violent content that some readers might find triggering or offensive. Please proceed with caution.
I know, I know. This book is problematic, full of toxic masculinity, and girl hate. But I like trash books and this entertained me.
I liked our main character, Gemma. She was so snarky and was not afraid to stand up for herself. She went through some things in her past that left her with trauma and mistrust about guys. You couldn’t help but root for her. Her brother pissed me off. He knows what she went through in the past but only cared about himself. He never once stuck up for her when the whole school was bullying her.
“When I say you’re mine, I don’t just mean you’re my girl, sweetheart. I mean I want to own you all the time.”
Lucas. He had some issues and really should have been knocked down a peg. He was king of the school and expected Gemma to fall in line and like a smart girl, she refused. He really needed a lesson on how to talk to women. I’m still a little shocked that he had the whole school bullying her because he got his ego bruised when she didn’t fall at his feet as his forced interactions.
“I don’t care about destroying her anymore. I just want her.”
Did their relationship start off right? Nope. Should they have even been together? Probably not. However, the push and pull between then were so addicting to read about. The sparks they were throwing out were electric.
This is in a high school setting but be advised that this is New Adult. Some of the things said and done here are going to be too much for some. If you read quite a bit of bully romance then you probably won’t bat an eye.
All in all, it was entertaining. A lot of things could have been done differently, but oh well. I’m intrigued to read the next book!
