Grace wants out. Out of her house, where her stepfather wields fear like a weapon and her mother makes her scrub imaginary dirt off the floors. Out of her California town, too small to contain her big city dreams. Out of her life, and into the role of Parisian artist, New York director—anything but scared and alone.
Enter Gavin: charming, talented, adored. Controlling. Dangerous. When Grace and Gavin fall in love, Grace is sure it's too good to be true. She has no idea their relationship will become a prison she's unable to escape.
Deeply affecting and unflinchingly honest, this is a story about spiraling into darkness—and emerging into the light again.
In order to review as many books as possible without stressing ourselves out, these super mini- tweet style reviews are going to help balance our other review styles. All our Short and Tweet reviews will be 140 characters or less (except when they are a bit longer). Thanks to Tif from Tif Talks Books for the idea!
Compulsive. Obsessive. Irresistible. Words to describe my experience reading Bad Romance, but also completely describes the story. What starts as a swoony, albeit twisted, Cinderella story quickly morphs into Sleeping With the Enemy. It’s disturbing, unsettling, and I couldn’t look away as Demetrios spun her web of love and fear so tightly, I didn’t realize I was already trapped until the end.
