Sticks and stones may break my bones,
but my bullies will never f*ck me.

Dexter Booth has taken everything from me.
My pride, my innocence and my resolve to resist him have all fallen prey to his wicked charm.
And now, he wants to pop my cherry - the very thing that could save me from his cruel reign.
Worse than that though, he's intent on sharing me with his entourage - the Firstborns of Eden Falls Prep.
There are three boys desperate to steal me. Lai. Caspian. Julian. All eager to get their hands on Dex's property.
When a fourth boy joins the mix, I find an unlikely ally. Easton is kinder. Sweeter. But he might just be the most
messed up of all my bullies.
I promised myself this town would never break me. I made a vow to run before Dexter knocks me up.
But when running is no longer an option, I realize the choice was never mine to begin with.
It's Dexter who has to pick.
My bully will decide whether he'll put a baby in my belly...
Or ruin me and finally have revenge on my father - the man who destroyed his life.


A Hurt so Sweet volume 2 was a rollercoaster of emotions. This series is definitely dark and twisted. The plot thickens even further at Eden Falls. When I thought Dexter was the ultimate bully and no one could surpass him, here enters Easton who wreaks havoc on my emotions.

"I'm sorry princess. It's not your fault. But you really were just a pawn from the very beginning."

The story continues were the first volume left off, with Dexter treating Pandora as his property and her rebelling against him but secretly loving every heinous mistreatment she receives. It was interesting to get a glimpse into the past and learn Dexter's well-kept secret, and why he wants to destroy Pandora's father. He continues to be a cruel bastard but deep down his feelings for his " toy" intensify. Pandora tries to be one step ahead of her enemies but always seems to end up being the pawn, falling from one trap to another. She should have learned her lesson the first time, never to trust a firstborn.

The action was fast-paced, and the plotline developed fairly quickly. The drama, intrigue, secrets, and suspense kept me riveted on a razor's edge. I literally held my breath on the last few pages. The cliffhanger left me wanting to know more and it's gonna be so hard to wait for the next volume to come out. I'm totally addicted to this series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
