Description

We were supposed to be best friends....

But turned out to be worst enemies.

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart was completely iced.

I took her first kiss. 

She took the only thing I loved.

I was poor.

She was rich.

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project. Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it - I’m your foster brother.

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good old, unapologetic punk.

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day. 

Four years ago, he asked me to save all my firsts for him.

Now he lives across the hall, and I want nothing more than to be his last everything.

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

Now? Now he is making me pay.

4 We're all human stars

I have to admit that I didn't like Daria going in. From what was mentioned of her in the previous series I thought she'd be awful. While she was queen bee and ugly most of the time, I felt her pain. Knowing what she felt and what she was going through I immediately understood her actions. Did that excuse her? No. But in the end we are all human.

I hope to get more of her and Penn. I fell in love with him too. When he was hurting I hurt too. He was a jerk but he had a lot of anger towards Daria. I'm just glad that he didn't give up on her or on himself.

Now Melody....yeah I've never been her biggest fan.


Narration
Female 4 stars, pacing was a little weird.
Male 5 stars, he was perfect for Penn.

Pretty good!

I actually enjoyed this book. I completed it in one day. I loved Daria’s evolution. She went from a selfish, heartless mean girl to a lovable, humbled woman. I found the story to be well executed. The book showed how much more difficult and destructive life can be when we let miscommunications, jealousy and envy fester and spread like cancer. I felt the emotions conveyed by the author and narrators. I felt the compassion, love and forgiveness of family and friends, the hatred of misguided, envious enemies, the heartbreak of unrequited love, a fathers revenge, the struggles of adolescence and the redemption of broken souls. I felt all of this and more in one pretty awesome story. well done!

A millennial story of A Hazy Shade of Winter

For those whom suffered thru the 80's... it's an angsty high school melodrama with an HEA

One of the best!

This book really touched and moved me at the same time. The characters in the book struggle - but with issues far from what you normally meet in romance novels. Therefore this story really caught me and I will definitely listen to the story again and go look for more from this auditor.
Furthermore, the author includes point of view from others charactors than the main two, adding further to the story. Really interesting story and totally captivating.

Such a great book!!

Have you ever read a book and not be able to put it down? You skip sleep because you can’t not read the next sentence? This was that for me! I start this book at 11 o’clock at night and finished seven hours later! The drama, the personal growth, and the world building in this book are perfection! I have read one other book by this author and love that one too. I look forward to reading many more by L.J. Shen!

NOT THE HOTHOLES

I don't like this spin off. I was blown away by the Hotholes series and expected more than what I got from this story. The actual plot was too thin to warrant the amount of angst from the characters. The female narrator was terrible. The nuances in her delivery were annoying. Her speech was drawn out, over the top and not natural at all. Daria had absolutely no redeeming qualities. She was also written like she had a mental illness (bipolar, split personality, depression, etc.) with no mention of mental health issues. Hard to through.

This one just cracked my heart wide open!

There’s something to be said when someone’s writing just reaches in and grasps your beating heart. Just completely takes hold, squeezing, until it bursts and then pieces you back together again. I’m in awe of L.J. Shen. I anticipated the greatness that is her writing but what I found was so much more. Daria Followhill and Penn Scully had me a complete mess, in the most satisfying way.

My 2nd by this author

I read series in reverse but this was a good audiobook! It’s a great high school/adult problem read. I enjoyed the rich girl poor boy angle but not the vindictiveness of a certain family member or the rich girl in the beginning.

I was consumed by this story, these characters.

One normal afternoon. One encounter. One kiss. One mistake. This was the start, the ending. Nothing will be the same. Daria and Penn. Two souls meant to be together, but at what cost? The Queen, the punk. No one will be left untouched, it will all burn. It will be glorious.

I dreamed of Daria last night. That's how deeply this story hit me. So much damage. So much pain, So much jealousy. This was a painful read in the best sense. A book of lies and of honesty. An addictive journey. It's a masterpiece of mistakes. Love gone wrong, good intentions never realized. It's a story of greed, wanting what you haven't earned, don't deserve. A story of selfishness and thoughtlessness. But it's also a story of change, growth, and second chances. There are moments of cruelty but also of beauty. Small acts that mean everything. I was taken in from the first words and captivated until the final ones. I was consumed by this story, these characters. This was the first book of LJ Shen's that I have read. I can promise you, that I plan to devour her entire list of books after this one.

I listened to this one audio. Perfection. The narrators voiced the characters to perfection. Daria and Penn came to life. Their poems, their anger, their heartache, their love was captured exactly how I pictured it in my mind.
