Publisher's Summary

The bet was simple. You draw a name from the hat. That's the girl you have to seduce. The girl you have to make fall head over heels in love with you. It wasn't hard for him to do, in fact, it was something he did all the time. He was known for breaking hearts. Sex was just that, sex. And it didn't take him very long to get a woman on her back. 

And then he drew her name: Jules Peterson. His former best friend, first kiss, and first love. She shattered his heart into a million pieces three years ago. She left him right when he needed her most. She had entered his life once again, at almost the perfect time. She was a transfer, fresh meat, and she had just put a target on her back. It was his turn to make her pay and break her heart. 

Holding onto that hate, that anger, that f--king heartbreak - it does something to you. It breaks you, and it broke and tainted him, just like he would do to Jules. She used to be his everything, but now she was nothing but a bet.

Jules and Remington

Such a heart wrenching story. It took me a lot to start liking Remington. He is so mean in the beginning, but his actions come from a place of pain. He doesn't know how to deal with his emotions and anger, so he blames Jules for all his problems. Luckily he comes to his senses half way through out the book. Also, enjoyed the narration. voices were great and sucked me in.

Not Good

I just didn't like this book. The first part was Remi whining about everything. Then the second part is Jules whining about everything. Along with the dumb reason Remi was mad at Jules in the first part and the dumb reason she was mad at him in the second part, it just wasn't good. It's a shame too because I love Teddy Hamilton and love to listen to just about any book he reads but this book was just a waste of his talent. He made the book Ava Lucas was alright.

My fave

I’m trying to write this without giving away any spoilers! My first thoughts on Remington after his first flashback is that he’s a total dick! I mean you can’t blame Jules because of something that was out of her control. First chapter in and my heart was already a mess. Like dudeee wth is your problem? Remmy’s first words to her after he saw her again in class after three years were so harsh i was like dude i want to throat punch you! The bet.. stupid idea but boys will be boys! *inserteyeroll* damn this book put me through an emotional rollercoaster! I can’t even with this book JL writes so damn good i could literally feel Jules’ pain while reading, so much raw emotion. Now I’m beginning to like Remmy a bit... also i have something in common with Jules i hate coffee but love hot chocolate minus the cinnamon. Remmy is starting to come around and not be a dick. Ugh now he’s back to being a dick! But atleast i know he loves her and I’m pretty sure he never expected the recording to get out... i can feel his pain whewww the emotions right now are so high! Ok done! Wow that was so good I literally couldn’t put it down! I can’t wait for you all to meet, hate and then fall in love with Remington! It was so emotional and raw i totally loved it!! This definitely deserves a 5 star!

Love this book but…?

I’m just wondering how did and the dad and brother die? But this book was a winner. There is sexiness, drama, and suspense in this book. I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the series.

Good but not exactly what I expected

For a bully romance to work the actual aspect of the bullying should make sense. In this situation I didn’t feel it was actual bullying but more hurt feelings and bad decisions.

no, just no

that is not love, that is not how you treat another human being. I didn't like this book at all, neither the characters, the writing or the plot.

Just Another Bully Story.

First of all, both narrators did a great job with bringing their characters to life. They both captured the emotions of Remy and Jules. Remy’s hate for Jules was cruel, but his reason was very dumb. It just didn’t make sense. This wasn’t my favorite bully book, but if you like this genre, you may like this one. The profanity is horrible.

Reuniting years later...

I really enjoyed the way the characters fell for each other. especially after longing for each other for so long. the narration is perfect. I'm confident you will enjoy this book.
