***This novel contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+. 

Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or so numb that you actually felt high? 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.

Except Tatum.

I love her so much that I hate her. 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. The sight of her centers me, and I can pool all of my anger into her. Engaging her, challenging her, bullying her...they are my food, my air, and the last part of me that feels anything human.

But she left. She went to France for a year, and came back a different girl.

Now, when I push, she pushes back

(I received this novel from the author for an honest review.)

Several months ago I came across a book called Bully and I fell in love with Jared an Tate.  There story was mesmerizing.  So, when I was given the opportunity to read Until You I jumped at the chance to read Jared's side of the story.  I really enjoyed seeing their world through his eyes.  In Bully the reader was able to get a glimpse of why Jared acted the way he did, but in Until You you fully understand.  The hurt and angst ran much deeper then I previously thought.  While I felt bad for Tate throughout the first novel, I have to say I feel worse for Jared now.  

If you haven't read Bully I strongly suggest you read that novel first.  You will appreciate Until You more if you do.

Happy reading!!

  1. I have not had a chance to read the new book but I love your writing. I had Bully on my ipad for a while before I read and then kicked myself for waiting that long.

  2. I was surprised how much I loved Bully. It easily became one of my favorites. Until You was no exception. I usually am not a huge fan of changed POV books, because they seem like retellings, but Until You had plenty of new stuff and I LOVED getting in Jared's head!
