Bittersweet Revenge by JL Beck Review

Bittersweet Revenge
By: JL Beck
Release Date: July 26, 2014


I’m a slut. Or at least that’s what everyone 

calls me. I guess that’s what you get when 

everyone think’s you've slept with the whole 

football team and then some.

My junior year of high school I gave my heart 

to Corey Winchester. He was handsome, 

cocky, and a pure gentlemen. Then 

everything changed in an instant. When I 

found out he was spreading malicious rumors 

about me, after I refused to sleep with him I 

was utterly surprised. To add to it, he broke 

up with me in front of the whole school. I 

essentially became the laughing stock of the 

town. People that I once called my friends 

became my enemies. Finding a way to ruin 

my life one day at a time. Now the shitty part 

is I should have known a pretty boy like him 

was too good to be true. After ruining my 

reputation and life I did everything I could to 

stay under the radar, but it just wasn't 

enough. I slowly learned that all the torment, 

and hate was all for one thing. Revenge. 

That’s what Corey wanted, and why I didn't 

know. Then Rex Winchester came along. 

Corey’s cousin, and someone I knew I 

shouldn't be getting close with. A whole six 

feet of hotness, a smile that melted the 

panties off of every girl in a fifty mile radius, 

and a heart of gold. He could have anyone he 

wanted, so why he chose me Corey’s ex, the 

bullied, slutty girl was beyond me. All I knew 

was that I wanted him. I wanted him more 

than anything. The problem was, I couldn't 

tell if Rex, was just like Corey or if his 

intentions were as innocent as he was making 

them out to be. My names Jenna Haines, and 

this is the story of how the one thing I 

wanted.. turned out to be the one thing that 

would hurt me the most. What happens when 

the one thing you least expect to happen, 

does? When all the lies and secrets come out. 

Well you're about find out.

Shannon's Review

Bittersweet Revenge was a great short read. It’s a novella so it only took me about an hour or so to read it. It also helped that I couldn’t put it down.
Jenna goes through the last of her high school years being bullied. Corey who completely turned me off from the get go, is an a@#hole. OMG I wanted to beat the crap out of him. He made me furious. Jenna takes a lot from all her peers at school. She may not seem strong in the beginning of the book but really she has to be to put up with all the bullying.
Now when Chris comes into the picture I thought he was the sweetest guy ever. He is cute, nice, and attentive. But and this is a big BUT he has secrets. I so wanted to like him the whole way through the book. I really did.
I can’t go into complete detail of the book because it would give it all away. All I can say is I NEED THE SEQUEL LIKE NOW. Unfortunately we have to wait until October to have more of this story. L
I am giving this book 4.5 hearts.
