Publisher's Summary

Two years ago, she ruined my family’s life. Maybe, she thought it was only a little lie. That she did the right thing, that the worst was behind her, that no one had gotten hurt. 

Oh, how naive the black haired beauty was! Fate has finally brought her back to me...to Blackthorn Academy. 

Once upon a time, I was obsessed, consumed with the need to make her mine. Now, I just want revenge, and I’ll do whatever I can to get it. 

You see, the beautiful, sweet Willow doesn’t realize the mistake she’s made, yet. She doesn’t realize that she’s entered the lion's den, and there won’t be any escaping her fate. 

I’m Parker Rothschild, and I’ll become her nightmare, her enemy, her bully. 

By the time I’m finished with her, she’ll be begging me for forgiveness and pleading to confess her sins. 

Please note: This is a stand-alone dark bully romance. This audiobook contains scenes that may be triggering to some listeners. This is not a YA romance novel and should be listened to only by those who are 18 or older.

Very well done, can't wait to read the rest!

I listened to this via Audible version and went into it with low expectations. I must say though, I'm happy to have been proven wrong. The novel was well written, perhaps a bit hurried, but it kept me guessing and even had a little bit of a plot twist that I didn't see coming. The characters were really well put together and I absolutely love how FINALLY the heroine's character has something to add to the story. This is the first novel that I've read by these authors and I'm so excited to look forward to seeing more!

Book one in the series.

Hating you, book one in the Blackthorn Elite series follows Parker Rothschild and Willow Bradford. All Willow wanted was to protect her sister Ashton, so she does as her father asks and enrolls in Blackthorn Academy with the hopes of working her way into getting her father back into the circle of the rich and powerful. What she didn’t expect was to run into Parker Rothschild. Parker has been obsessed with Willow and when she comes to Blackthorn, he finally begins his plans for revenge. At first I just figured that they really did hate each other, but as the story progresses, you begin to see that the lines between enemies and lovers begins to blur and though Willow lets Parker do things to her that are borderline assault, she still has feelings for him. Will have to see what happens in the next book.

A good book!

This was a good book with a lot of surprises that kept things interesting. The narrator's do a great job of telling it as well.

Great Story-Poor character/narrator fit

These narrators are new to me and while both did an amazing job, I had a hard time sticking with listening vs reading. This is because the male narrator’s voice didn’t quite match the character, Parker, for me. It was a bit too...soft. It kept throwing me off when I was expecting a deeper growl. Parker was a very aggressive, possessive, and a little over the top. This narrator just wasn’t able to deliver all that (for me).

Overall, an intense story! Definitely worth the read!

Loved the story

As always I LOVED the story. I want a fan of the female’s narration. She spoke like every word had a period in between. The man’s narration was great though, I loved his voice and he didn’t hang up on any words. Would definitely enjoy listening to this one again

Preferred reading to the audiobook

I read the book and quite enjoyed the storyline. I was excited to pick up the audio version, but was disappointed in the narration. The male actor spoke too closely to and blowing into the microphone; his voice was just loud and lacked crispness. In addition both actors, the male and female, recited all characters, tones, reactions in the same voice, making the characters indistinguishable from each other, and text unremarkable. Unfortunately, I found my attention drifting while listen to this book and would not be interested in another recited by these narrators.

Grabbed my attention!

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this college dark romance. It grabbed my attention and held it through the twists and turns of the hate/love relationship of Parker and Willow. Great job by the narrators bringing the characters to life. Looking forward to reading more of this series!
