Your first kiss is supposed to be sweet. Ours was baptized in fire.

I was the new girl trying to find her place.

Landon was the brooding neighbor I tutored over the summer.

I didn’t know he was a legend at Black Mountain Academy.

I didn’t know they worshipped him like a religion.

But I fell for him before I knew those things.

To me, he was just the tortured soul who drew me in like a magnet.

And then he did something so unspeakable, so unforgivable, it shattered me.

I ran away then because I was weak, but I’ve shed my tears.

He stole my heart and my dignity, and I’m here to take it back.

The only problem is… he’s not giving it up without a fight.

~ Maria’s Review ~

Pretty When She Cries by A. Zavarelli is a gritty, crazy rollercoaster ride that had me hooked from the prologue and engaged to the end. Landon and Kailani’s story is a twisted tale of friends to enemies to lovers. It is dark, angsty and dramatic. And I loved it.

Landon and Kailani are both complicated characters. Their push / pull is intense. Their chemistry is palpable. Their story is what teenage drama is made of. They both have baggage and are vulnerable for their own reasons. I couldn’t help but root for their happy ending.

This story has the perfect mix of secrets, misunderstandings, mean girls, high school angst and so many plot twists, it had me like “whoa!” It kept me on the edge of my seat. Jaw dropping and unpredictable to the end. At times, a little over the top but just so deliciously good! Looking forward to more!

Author A. Zavarelli is extremely talented. Whether she is writing about the Boston Underworld, Twisted Fairy Tales or, like now, Bully Romance, one thing is certain, she delivers an original and compelling story.
