I don't believe in fairy tales and Prince Charming.

I believe in fear.

He taught me how to be afraid.

We first met on a playground on a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wouldn’t be the last. For ten years, he's been my tormentor and I've been his forbidden. But then he went away, and yet

This is one of those reads that's not looking to make friends.

Nope. It's the goth girl sitting in the back of the classroom, holding up her middle finger while simultaneously winking at you with a smile. You're kind of wondering what to think...but the thing about the goth girl is...She doesn't care what we think. And neither does this book, I'm pretty sure. The author, who I've never met, seemed to go with her gut and seemed to have a lot of fun while doing it. Kudos.

2.5 Stars

This was one of those books people who thought anyone liking Fifty Shades of Grey wanted to be whipped and had a poor understanding of what a healthy relationship looked like - never mind it being a work of fiction - would hate.


The guy is psychotically possessive and violent.
The female shows very little backbone and any resolve shatters in the face of "but he's so hot and handsome and my downstairs parts can't take it."
And everyone in the book bows down to the main character's desires

Fuck me this was a dark read....and I fucking loved it.
Reading Dark books is probably my favourite genre of books to read.
Don't ask me why because I'm still trying to figure it out.
Fear Me is a mind fuck of a read, it's the most fucked up book I've ever read, but I loved it so much.
This book isn't your everyday high school romance, and it deifnitely isn't for the faint hearted.
It's safe to say that it made me cross, upset and a little disgusted, but I just couldn't for the life of me, put it
Mysterious And Suspenseful

I just finished this one and I am still trying to decide what I think about it. This definitely isn't your everyday high school romance. It made me angry, sad and disgusted. Above all else, I was completely captivated by this story and could not put it down.

Unlike most alpha-male heroes, Keiran doesn't grow out of his A-holery. There were only lesser shades of A-hole for him, never eliciting a single "love that guy" type of feeling from me. He offers no apologies and is

I have so many problems with this book I don't even know where to start. My patience was hanging by a thread halfway through reading this. This book dragged and dragged and at one point I just skimmed through to get to the good parts -- it was that bad. (I fell asleep numerous times) It was the same shit in every chapter: Lake getting pushed over, Kieran being an asshole abusive piece of shit and Lake letting him. It was exhausting.

TITLE: Fear Me
SERIES: (Broken Love #1)
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: January 27th, 2015
MY RATING: ★★★★★


I read a review on here that mentioned that this book was similar to Bully by Penelope Ward, which is totally spot on, but is darker, more twisted and has more twists and turns than a roller coaster..

For the first part of this book (more like the first half) I oscillated between feeling disgusted and wanting to delete it and (sometimes) being turned on and enjoying their sexual encounters field with dubious consent...I felt like I was CRAZY because I shouldn't be likening it...not at all!!!


I was also very frustrated with how weak the main female character (Lake) was. She was letting him do whatever he wanted and I get lust and I get pleasure but what I really don't get it stupidity and some

i enjoyed this book but it wasn't my favorite cause i was similar to Corrupted by Penelope douglas which i didn't like either but Fear me is more twisted but not that dark !! i gave it 3 stars because i'm a fan of bad boys , i felt really bad for Lake in the first few chapters i know what it's like to be bullied but Keiran took bullying to another level damn he HATED her So much, he loves terrorizing her , despite everything he did to her she still wanted him and love

2 REALLY Fear Him Stars

There are qualities in this book I liked and there are a lot of qualities in this book I didn’t like. Most of them are based on my reading preferences.

Many times I felt like I should have DNF this book, but I kept on reading because I was really interested in what will happen. This is a meaty book, meaning it is super long. At one point I thought the author put two books in one. I believe 30% of the book could have been edited out.

I very rarely do re-reads and much less one month after having read it the first time. However, Kieran is not your typical hero and I needed to experience him again.

This story is in its own category. Our hero, anti-hero really, invites genuine fear in our heroine and with good reason. He takes control to the next level. So much so that in the thousands of books that I’ve read, I’ve yet to find his equal in the matter. I know that a relationship like this in real life would definitely have some

This was a mash up of several genres and it was all so "buffed" at times that it felt suffocating.

Now, the subject referring here is bullying, but it's actually not...

the characters are annoying, especially the guuurls, and f*ck am I sorry to say that cause I hate to drag my gender in the mud, but it is what it is!

so our heroine suffers or better yet endures the hurtful verbal and physical bullying from our anti-hero.

Let me begin with the positive things here. What did I like?

Silence. Crickets are chirping in near distance. The wind is whistling. Hay bales are rolling around.

Okay, my brain is drawing blank. Moving on.

Please take a good look at the 'Fear Me' Cover and tell me it wasn't copied from the one and only Kermit the King who did it first. If I could, I would insert a poll on who did it better, but I mean is there really a competition? 😌

Had to DNF this at 40% in. I could not stand behind the hero blackmailing our character and forcing her do to things out of fear. Nothing about that is consensual in my eyes and I didn’t want to keep reading.
Good god, what the ever loving hell have I just read??

A cruel, abusive, controlling, manipulative, perverted, bullying, arsehole does NOT an alpha make. A true alpha male protects his woman, he does not debase and annihilate her the way this revolting specimen did .... for TEN YEARS (and got away with it to the point of even the teachers being scared of this little tool), so where the alpha tag came from I have no idea.

I gave it a good shot, but to be perfectly honest I'm finding it a bit unbelievable that an 18 year old holds this much power over everybody in the whole town. Plus he's an arsehole for forcing the heroine, who he humiliates on a daily basis to (view spoiler)

I do love a dark hero, and dubious consent doesn't always bother me, but in this case I think I'll pass. If it were a standalone I may have continued but nah, I'm bailing.

4.5 Stars!

I read the prologue and I knew without a doubt I was going to love this book. I immediately started rubbing my hands together with a evil grin on my face.

There was a lingering question before I started this book. Was this dark, was this going to be twisted? The title led me to believe that, so I had to stalk the author, find out details, I need to know these things. If you tell me your book is dark, then it better be. Anyway, she was completely honest and told me she didn't know what

Fear Me NOT! There are so many reasons I don’t like this book. I really don’t know where to start. First of all, what bothers me most is that the plot seems unrealistic, not believable at all. For example, no parents are ever present. Also, all characters are students but we don’t see them ever study, worry about grades/exams or follow a realistic everyday schedule. They just have breakfast, go to school and worry about sex issues all day long. This book also looks pseudo-dark. What I mean by th ...more
Alpha Possessive Heroes
Well... if you're looking for some OTT possessive and mean alpha hero then this book is definitely for you! I've read alot (tons!) of alpha male in my reading life, but KEIRAN is OVER THE TOP! He's down right mean and did some mean things to the heroine but for some weird shit- I LIKEY! O_O

Pretty much the whole thing was quite unrealistic and had some over the top scenarios that made me WTF but despite all that, I still liked it!

So that being said, I'm slapping this as a 5 STARS! LOL!
