Description: Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Ever felt numb to all emotions?
The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between. Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone.
I love her so much that I hate her. I hate that I can't let her go. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her or anyone else. So I hurt her. I pushed her away. But I still need her. She centers me. Engaging, challenging, bullying her - it's the last part of me that feels anything human.
But then she left for a year and came back a different girl. Now, when I push, she pushes back.
For everyone who loved Bully . . . This is Jared's story
My Thoughts:(May Contain Spoilers from Bully, Fall Away #1)
Oh. My. God. Oh. My God. Just Oh My God!!! I never expected to like this as much as I did. Usually I am not a fan of books that's are "retold" from a different point of view. However, Until You is not a retelling! Yes this story and Bully cross over and you read the some of the same bits again but mostly this is Jared's story! We get to finally see what is going inside that yummy but messed up head!

I receive an email from the publisher to review the latest book "Rival" and even though I was told I could read it as a stand alone I am one of those people who need to read the books from the beginning! So I bought Bully and I devoured it in one night!! I stayed up until around 1.30am to finish it! It's bloody addictive!!

Beautifully written with love able characters that made me devour the book in one day.
Lucy Aimes moves to New Orleans with her family. She suffers from dark and disturbing dreams that only get more intense the longer she is in new home. But she just thinks they are strange dreams. Little does she know that she is about to stumble upon a century old vendetta that threatens to hurt the ones she loves and only she can stop it with the help of a mysterious and handsome young man, Alex who is hiding a dark secret that is intertwined with Lucy and her dreams.
I was first drawn to this simply because of the amazing cover. With the wonderful Gothic looking fence I was a goner straight away. I am a sucker for anything that looks Gothic and then once I read the blurb I just knew I needed it. I am been obsessed with anything New Orleans even since a certain author's vampire books ;) I am drawn to the setting and instantly fall in love. Even though I have never actually been there. So you can imagine that my expectations were very high for this book. And boy, it did not disappoint. I found myself completely enthralled by the mystery of this tale. And being fascinated by the added mix of Voodoo and Lucy's dreams that are set around the time of the Civil War.
Lucy is a very believable teenager. She is not perfect. But when push comes to shove she will stop at nothing to protect those she cares for even if it means breaking her own heart. Alex, was a mystery and unravelling his secret was what kept me reading. It was thrilling as we delved deeper into the past to see how it connects in the presents and my god most of it I did not see coming!! My only issue was that I personally thought it felt just a little rushed. It seems like everything happened over the course of a week or so.
Sweet Unrest is sure to be hit! I hope people read it and love as much as I did. With mystery, voodoo and a thrilling story line that sends shivers down your spine. I highly recommend it. Just don't read in public because if you are like me and cry easily you will end up n tears!! (less)
