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.

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.
