My Review 💋

I hate the way my breath catches. Because while he’s the biggest asshole on the planet… he’s also dangerously attractive.”

Star Rating : 5/ 5 Stars

POV : Dual

Cliffhanger : None

Hero : Trenton Knox. A boy full of so much hate , he was a type of character that I had never encountered. He was ruthless and truly one of the biggest Bullies. But when he showed his vulnerable side , you couldn't help with fall for him.

Heroine : Aspen . She was a lonely soul who was a daddy's girl until her father was shot dead and her mother remarried. She was strong and sassy and I loved the way she loved Knox with everything she had in her.

Pace of the story : Fast

Angst Rating : 7/10

Heat Rating : 8/10

Triggers Involved : Past Trauma , Bullying

I hated her for breathing the same air as me. I hated her for existing.”

Plot Summary :

Knox has always hated Aspen. From the moment he saw her on the swing when they were kids , he knew he was going to break her. Now they are almost adults but that hate has not lessened. But now Hate is not the only thing he feels for her.

Aspen absolutely loathes Knox. The man had always made her life hell and there was no way he was stopping anytime soon. So full of hate , he was one gorgeous combination. Sometime she felt something else for him until with one ruthless action he destroyed it all. Now all that was left between them was so much hate that they didn't know what to do with it.

She’s the home I never had.”
