I don’t have a set date as of yet. Once I hit a certain part in the project, I’ll feel way more comfortable giving a date out.

***4 "Your heart!!!" stars***


"You have glass hearts. All four of you. It's just a matter of time before someone comes along and exposes the cracks."
"And let me guess, you're going to be that girl...
You really want to dance with the devil, baby?"

If i would say that the beginning wasn't confusing, I would lie.
But as the pages were turning, well, I was a goner for these four boys, especially for Marek and Breaker and of course, for Palmer...
This story frustrated me in many leve

This was disappointing. After reading the whole book I still couldn't tell you what the plot is and I don't feel any closer to understanding the characters or their motives.

The story starts with the MC's senior year. Her sister mysteriously disappeared a year ago and since then a few other girls have disappeared from this private elite school that the wealthy attend. I expected that the school would be on high alert, trying to figure out who's kidnapping these girls. Nope, neither the school no

HOLY HELL! This book... I am OBSESSED with it. CONSUMED by it. Glass Heart Savage is dramatic, it's sexy, it's twisty, it's dark and so intoxicating that you won't be able to put it down. Seriously, it is that good and also chock-full of angst. I wanted to scream, cry, yell and throw my kindle at times. Every emotion a person can feel I felt while furiously devouring this book.

Marek is one of those heroes that you hate, but love just the same. He was a real enigma to me. Most of his actions wer

FIVE STARS for Palmer and Marek ❤🖤!!!


This is the first book that I've read by Lindsey Iler and I love it!

"Glass Heart Savage" is a dark bully romance that kept me occupied trough whole reading and I couldn't put it down.

Palmer is a female character that you'll love her from the beginning of the book. She is strong and fearless.

Marek is a male character who you'll love and hate at the same time.

Palmer and Marek are two broken souls who make a perfect couple in their imperfection.

Sooooo where to fucking begin. I will start by saying some bully romances I like very much. So I will start a book to see if it’s a type I will like. I’m always hoping you know? But this mother fucker is not that kind of book. This is the kind that pisses me off beyond words. That saying “I got heated” is literal, your temp rises as your anger rises. It pisses me off that authors even make this type of bully book, that readers love them, they even want more of them, that authors or readers don’t ...more

HOLY WOW!!! GLASS HEART SAVAGE is one wild ride!!! A tantalizingly and terrifyingly twisted roller coaster of a romance that thrust me to the emotional edge the whole time reading. OMG!!! I felt such an intense and intoxicating high! This highly addictive and heart-pounding tale kept me turning the pages until the end.

”Your pleasure belongs to me and no one else.”

In this deliciously dark and destiny-filled saga with a bullying theme, a hero and heroine are plagued by demons and thir
DNF @ 20%. Was there a plot to the smut? 20% in and I was none the wiser. Clearly, this bully thing is not working out for me right now. Urgh, maybe I should just go and read myself some Truman Capote.

Stop what you're doing! Glass Heart Savage needs to be moved to the top of your TBR pile now!

It's full of mysteries and unanswered questions begging to be told.

Almost a year after her sister's presumed death, Palmer has attracted the attention of the Glass House Boys.

From there it's a constant push and pull throughout the story. But oh how sexy and delicious the story is!

Usually the author hints at the good in the bully, even if it is only for the heroine, but Lindsey Iler had me questioning

**this book should come with a trigger warning to people who get triggered over rape and bullying.

This book was all over the place. I coudlnt connect with the characters at all. I thought maybe for a second I liked the heroine, but I lost a ton of respect for her after she constantly forgave the bully's of the book. The writing was all over, too. It helps, if you're changing the setting and scene to put a page break or even start a new chapter. The whole plot was extremely confusing. I left wit
Lindsey Iler is a new to me author but when I read the blurb of Glass Heart Savage I just knew that I needed a taste of the Glass House Boys.

“You really want to dance with the devil, baby?”

Marek. That guy is ruthless, alpha and so sexy. I hate and love him with my whole heart.

I experienced pretty much every emotion while reading this story, of bullying, hate,l and explosive passion.

Palmer was such an amazing, kick ass heroine. God I loved her. She’s exactly the sort of heroine I love reading

Lindsey Iler delivers a twisted and dark bully romance in Glass Heart Savage. Needless to say this was an intense and intriguing read. This was definitely an intense bully romance on a much darker side.

This story dives straight in to action from the very beginning and doesn't let up for the entire book. I never knew who to trust or what was going on and I think it’s safe to say that 80% of the time I was confused as to what was going on!

This book ends with more questions then answers a

Bully romance is my kindle crack and this one most definitely hit the mark, and then some! 🖤

Without giving away spoilers, Palmer and Marek's story sucked me in and didn't let me go. Intrigue, mystery, the push and pull between or hero and heroine - it was all there. I enjoyed every single minute! I found myself intrigued by all the characters, not just Palmer and Marek, and I can't wait to read more about them in future books.

Loved it, HIGHLY recommend it, and I'm dying for the next!

Now I grabbed this book because I heard a lot of people talking about it. And I thought ok let me check it out. I will start by saying that I've kind of stayed of away from the High School Bully reads for the last little bit but call it intuition I decided I would give this one a shot.

Glass Heart Savage definitely intrigued me. This story definitely has it's secrets and it kept me reading hoping to find out what those were.

Lindsey Iler brings you a bully romance that is One. Of. A. Kind! I’m a huge bully romance reader but I’ve had to scale back because so many authors have been trying their hand at bully and for some it just doesn’t work, or it just comes off as cliché. Glass Heart Savage is FAR from a cliché!!! You would never be able to guess this is Lindsey’s first go at a dark bully romance. She hits it OUT OF THE PARK!!!! And that is not an exaggeration!

In this book you meet Palmer, Marek, Breaker, Dixon, By

I am in shock. Literally, my mouth is hanging open. I did not see this book coming at all. Sure, I love anything dark and bully romance is one of my favorite tropes but, dear Lord. This book was excellently done. I cannot believe I have to wait to see what happens.
I adored the writing. I adored how the plot gave me all the feels. It was angsty and twisted and everything I look for in a bully book. Full of twists and turns but also a book that will make you think long after you have finished it.

4-1/2 stars!

This book was a complete and utter mind fuck. I feel like I need to go read through it again to make sure I understand everything that happened. There is so much going on & I feel like just more & more questions came up without answers. I think that’s what makes this book so great in my opinion because it literally has you turning page after page without realizing how much has passed because you just want answers. Or was that just me? Also first time I’ve read any of Lindsey’s books

I received an ARC of this book, from the author, for my honest review. Glass Heart Savage releases on April 6th 2020!

I LOVE Lindsey Iler. I'm trying not to sound like too much of a fan girl, but it's hard. She has helped me so much, when it comes to writing my own book, making my cover, and just always being there for me if I have a silly question. Also, she writes excepti

I was so excited about this book coming out and now I am left somewhat disappointed.
The writing was great, he suspense was too - but not one character was like-able.
At first I thought our heroine would be kick ass - but she wasn't. The more she was tortured by the hero, the more she ran towards him.
Him and his friends took things way too far, and the way she rolled with it was sad and desperate.
Don't really care about book 2.

Holy F***!!!! Glass Heart Savage is beautifully twisted and dangerous. I loved every second of it and I need book two ASAP. Palmer is a bada**. Her strength is beyond amazing. Definitely have a girl crush on her. The boys of Glass Heart will leave you wanting them or hating them.

Crikey I can’t believe this is my first read by this author. Marek is one of the four Glass House Boys. This along with Palmer is their story. Their story is full of suspense and twists.

The other boys made some fabulous secondary characters and I can’t wait to read more about them all.

After that ending I’m waiting rather impatiently for more

O M G!!!!!! These boys are a piece of work!!!! Marek makes any other “hero” look like a monk but he’s a hot monk. Palmer wasn’t as weak as people thought she was; she was a baddie. This is so twisted and so good at the same time that you want to throw your kindle but also continue reading. There’s so many people in play and you just don’t know what’s going to come from what end. Marek and Palmer if you want to call it a relationship is so messed up that you don’t know what to believe. But omg it ...more
