They say there's a fine line between love and hate.

There is.

I married a douchebag.

I didn't know it at the time.

He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.

I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.

Then he left me high and dry.

Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.

★★★ 3/4! ‘Til Death, book 1 of 2! Katia’s swept of her feet by Marcus Tandem only to become suspicious of his motives after their marriage!

The ‘Til Death duet must be read in order:
Part 1: ’Til Death, Volume I
Part 2: ’Til Death, Volume II

‘Til Death (book 1) is the story of a deceptive marriage set-up between business owner and potential heir Marcus Tandem and struggling personal assistant Katia Benn

** 4 "you shattered me" STARS **

"Marcus, you're destroying me. You're taking everything I am and twisting it. You're...ruining me."

"I know, precious."

Marcus Tandem has been managing his grandfather’s company for the last 1o years and waiting patiently for him to pass away so that the finances and management of the business can finally be handed down to him. When it finally happens, Marcus is pretty confident that he’s getting awarded for everything he’s been working for. But his gran
I didn't know how I would feel about this book because the author has the female protagonist straight up say she's in a bad relationship. The premise intrigued me and I decided that, before picking this up, I would read some of the reviews to get a feel for it. In one review I read, it said that the writing of the book was good.

Yeah, that's a lie. The writing is crap.

You read the story from both Katia and Marcus's perspectives and, really, if the author hadn't titled each section by the whose pe

Damn!!! That was really, really good!!!

This book was so interesting, all the time i was wondering how the things will turn out... I also like that it was written in double times (Past & present) from both sides (Marcus & Katia), so we were able to understand both sides and all the reasons that lead them to this end!!! Ι also enjoyed the fact that wasn't having too much pages because it wasn't bubbling without reason and it was so direct...

'Til Death is my first book by Bella Jewel, though i have many of her works in my T.B.R. i never came around reading them. Clearly that's a mistake i intend to rectify, immediately.

So we have Marcus Tandem! He is brooding, he is fierce, cold and collected and still a sexy deviant. Oh, and also a huge asshole. Yeah, i forgot about that. Maybe i forgive him because towards the end we saw another side of him..

Katia was supposed to be a means to an end, the solution to inherit his Uncle's business. Not only does he have to get married within twelve months, but he has to stay married for two years and his wife has to want to be married to him. He's doesn't hide that he's an asshole, arrogant and completely selfish, so when the opportunity of Katia presented herself, he knew she was the one!
Katia is so far from my type. She's tiny, she's fiery and she's opinionated. In the sack, she's a f

‘Til Death by Bella Jewel was wickedly and deadly ADDICTING!!! Right off the bat, I was hooked with the prologue alone. It sealed the deal for me and I knew this book was gonna be so good. And let me just tell you it was one satisfying heart-pounding and emotional ride. Your heart will slowly break for the heroine and yet you could not hate the hero because there is a reason for everything. We all know you can’t help who you fall in love wit
Til Death is not your normal run of the mill, lovey dovey romance story. Oh no, it is full of lies, betrayal and darkness...but through the dark there becomes a very little spark of light at the end of the tunnel. Could that mean that there may be a happy ending for this couple? I'm not sure? The journey though is a very interesting and emotional ride; and I was hooked through the good, the bad, and the ugly! Bella Jewel is quickly becoming a must read author for me. The more books that I read o ...more

5 Holy Shit That Was Good Stars!!!
I loved it!
Marcus is an asshole who doesn't feel anything for anyone! He needs a wife in the next 12 months or he will lose his business. He also has to stay married to this woman for two years.
Katia bumps into Marcus at a night club. Marcus decides Katia will make a perfect wife. So the story begins. Well after one night of some smoking hot sex. lol Katia doesn't have time for a relationship. She tries really hard to shove Marcus out of her life. But...Marcus
Twisted, emotional, brutally honest and sensual.

"This is the only word he says during sex. Not baby, or honey, or sweetheart. Just fuck."

***Quick Review:***

Series: First book in the 'Til Death series, although Marcus Tandem appears in the third book Jokers' Wrath MC, Anguish.
Grade: Erotic Romance with crime and suits billionaires theme.
Main characters: Marcus Tandem is an asshole, cold and hard. He's running a large company, and will do everything regardless of the consequences to get wh
I really liked this book. Katia is a refreshing heroine. She doesn't overcomplicate things. She doesn't run. She doesn't fight the H tooth and nail. No. She's happy and loving and sweet and open. I thought she was ignoring some major red flags but I was rooting for her to thaw Marcus's cold heart.

Marcus...Oh holy hotness. He's a cold, broody bastard but he sure knows how to fuck. The sex scenes were smokin' hawt.

This was such a great beginning for this series…this book has great main characters, very well developed. The plot as a lot of tension but is so yummy that I devoured this book in a matter of hours.
The important aspects:

Marcus – Well He is heaven dipped in hell he oozes raw sex, he is a selfish man but I love him, I cannot get enough of Marcus and his smoking sexy hot body!

Katia - Also great, strong but she felt in love… with a bastard!

Holy hot hell! This story was awesome! I've never read the MC club books by Ms. Jewel, but if they're half as good as the story of Marcus and Katia, I'm going to be all over it!

I was completely absorbed in this story from page 1. I could not put it down. Marcus and Katia's relationship was sexy, passionate...and built on lies. Even though you know the other shoe will drop, you'll be completely helpless to fight the draw of this couple.

Despite being an ass for a large part of the story, Marcus c

This was nat a typical romance read, full of love, hearts and rainbows!
It was intense, it was brutal, it was heartbreaking, still it was full of emotions.
The characters’ roles were tough, strong and challenging.

Marcus was a complete arsehole throughout the first part, cold hearted, ruthless, selfish and manipulative. His only interest towards Katia was to get her to marry him so he could inherit his grandfather’s business.

I have to admit that it was difficult to decide if I should give 4 or 5 stars when I was reading the book I couldn't see where it was going...how it could end....!

The story is fantastic! It's well thought and full of emotions! I don't know how many times I had to hold my breath with everything that was going on! And the sex scenes are intense!

~Stéphanie's Journal~

I'm a little conflicted here because I liked the book but I feel somehow mislead by the blurb.

When reading a blurb, you are expecting it to be an introduction from the book you are about to read, right?


When you read:
I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.

You expect a book with some kind of revenge?


What annoys me the most is that I was waiting throughout the book for the twist to happen

Since I buy all of Bella Jewel's books, I one clicked this one back in November but didn't read it preferring to wait until the release of book 2, which concludes the story. The author was very clear when book 1 was released that it was a cliff hanger and book two would be released in two months, which she followed up on. I'm not usually one who uses the "WOW" and "OMG", but those words really popped into my head when I finished book 1. In the preface, the author reminds the reader that events i ...more

This story is quite heartbreaking. Even the second time reading this book, it still is. Not heartbreaking as in tons of loss, horrid past and such, but heartbreaking as in a woman giving a man her all, her whole heart only for the man to not appreciate it. It painful. Specially how this book ends...
