“Yes, Abigail.” He spits my name out like it pains him to speak it. “And we need to talk.”

Thus Abigail is already engaged to Trent and she cannot do anything about it. Her future is pretty much predetermined. Abigail hates her li
The current trend – obsession, even – in romance really confuses me. In my mind, bullying does not result in love. It does not matter how people try to justify this, my personal experience has made it impossible to put the two aspects together in my mind. I have physical and emotional scars from years of bullying, to this day it still influences my thoughts and decisions, and I cannot imagine how I could have ever fallen for a bully.

I love high school books but usually bullies are not my cup of tea ... well, I'm not a girl who forgives easily! (Just ask my husband 😂) - but this book was different... Think of a combination of 'Bully' by Penelope Douglas and 'Indebted' by Pepper Winters!!! 💣😱

When I started this book I couldn't believe I was reading about 17 and 18-year-olds. The Rydeville High school is ruled by the Elite, which consists of Abby and her twin Drew, Trent, and Charlie. They are considered the rich and powerful. Now Abby may be part of the Elite, but she doesn't have much say. She is expected to listen and act accordingly. Most of the Elite, are already arranged to be married. And Trent, the dude Abby is supposed to marry, he really tops the asshole cake !!

This is the first book I've read by Siobhan Davis and OMG this is one the best book that I've read this year!!!

I really love Siobhan's writing style because this book was so easy to read and it's a page-turner 😄.

Before this one, I didn't read a dark romance with bully trope so I think from now on because of "Cruel Intentions" I will start reading this genre more 😍.

This was one of the books which you need to read all night because you need to know

I hate having to post this because now I'll probably be off the review team and that sucks. But I will ALWAYS be honest with my thoughts and opinions. I've only read one other book by this author and I really enjoyed it. It was a cute new adult romance that I really need to reread because I liked it. But this one... I have two hard limits when it comes to books. Cheating and drugs. Drugs are used so much that my three strike rule went out the win

I don’t even know what I just read. I do. That is my hyperbolic nature coming out, but my mind is jumbled mess. Honestly. What?!

The new elite, what can I say. I love them. Should I ? Probably not, but I don’t care. I do. My rebel heart loves them. Jackson with his playboy heart, Cam with his moodiness, and Sawyer with his stoic, yet ethical soul. I LOVE THEM. They are deplorable at times, but there are also moments that show their heart and those are the one I cling to.

Lets get into it. I do not understand Abby. Here she is. Privilege rich girl. Part of popular students in school. It seems she has everything. Behind close door, she played this role as angry resentful girl to all of her privilege. Her fiancee treats her with no respect. She agrees to bully other students in her school so she can maintain her status as mean girl.

From her dialog, she seems strong, but why she willing to accept every play and every bad treatment coming to her way? From her fia



So I went into reading this because I was curious about this “Bully Romance” and wondering what made it different from enemies to lovers. FYI a lot makes it different from enemies to lovers like a whole damn LOT 🥴

1) This about a rich girl who is apart of the elite which means they are all assholes and think they better than everybody. Her father is an asshole, her fiancé is the biggest asshole, her brother is an undercover asshole, and she’s just as much of an asshole.

HOLY CRAP. Cruel Intentions just rocked my whole world and came out of nowhere for me!! This story was blisteringly hot and delicious and filled with so much toxic (but decadent) bully goodness I might die. This story was sexy and delicious and so angsty at times I was rocking in the corner. It was also dark, disturbing and a bit uncomfortable at times but that is what made it so addicting. If you love bully romances, this book is for you!! The secrets, lies, conspiracies were so consuming. This ...more

“And that’s how it done, Son!”

The romance world has been saturated with “bully” books recently. Some have been AH-MAY-ZINNNG. Some, not so much. When this trope is done well, I can’t get enough of it, but lately I’ve been picking up some BR books that have just fallen flat, mainly because there has been nothing new in them, so with every new release, I tend not to get too excited about them anymore, purely to avoid any disappointment. So, I one-clicked CRUEL INTENTIONS and tried to kee

Yikes, this was a giant disappointing mess. High school/college bully romances are all the rage lately, and I’m ALL for it. Unfortunately, this brought nothing new to the table for me.

Abigail and Cam had literally zero chemistry. This should have been brimming with tension since it is a bully romance, and I got nothing with them.
The family/town old blood vs. new blood drama/politics between everyone felt extremely fake and just not plausible. Especially the school's hierarchy Elite

I enjoyed the clear Grease inspiration in this story. I didn't realize until later that the high school in Grease is even named Rydell High. The beginning beach scene with the two MMCs was written beautifully, and gave me major Sandy & Danny vibes. The idea to have them meet again belonging to two opposing cliques in high school is a brilliant idea for a bully romance.

This book was addicting to read, but this didn't quite do it for me enough to rate it 4 stars. While this book may come acros

My heart is pounding so hard, it may beat right out of my chest. Siobhan, you never cease to amaze me!!

Cruel Intentions is the start of Siobhan's newest series, Rydeville High Elite, and boy does know how to get your heart pumping and body racing. I gobbled this book in one day. There was no way I could read this any slower, and I tried because I knew it was going to end in a cliffy. But I was so pulled in to this story that I wasn't coming up for air. And I didn't.

Ok this was amazing. Literally read this in a day... A DAY. Obsessed with this twisted mess 😍
As always, Siobhan Davis brings her “A Game” to her work, not asking you to like the characters or the twists, but one cannot help but admire her ability to wring every drop of emotion from your body from love to hate to horror to disgust. CRUEL INTENTIONS is dark, your limits will be scoured raw and your beliefs in reality will be tested beyond the limits, because humans can be cruel, twisted and their minds distorted. The strong will devour the weak and we only need to look at the headlines to ...more

Cruel Intentions is the first book in the Rydevilee High Elite Series by the amazing Siobhan Davis. She did a fantasic job with this bully romance. 5 twisted stars. This story has everything you want-lies, secrets and steamy scenes. I lvoed how big of a dick Cam was. And how Abby never backed down. She was strong and did not give up the fight. I loved the secondary characters (new elite) just as much and am praying that they get books of their own. Siobhan did an amazing job on this twisted roma ...more

Ok, so I’ve just finished this book and my mind is blown! I’m going to try and write a review that doesn’t give anything away.

The first thing that I will say is this book is full of triggers... there are some really dark themes in this book.

I was anxious the whole way through and then there were a couple of chapters that really tested me and made me feel sick in the pit of my stomach. Anyone that reads my reviews knows that I love dark romance and it takes a lot

I have read a few books by Siobhan Davis and each has done their romance niche justice. I couldn’t wait to listen Cruel Intentions. This is the first book in the Rydeville High Elite series, and the series is off to a great start.
This is a dark story so I would be remis if I didn't say that my review comes with a trigger warning for abuse and very dark behaviour.

This was darker than my usual read, but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment. This book has some complex and unpleasant characters

Lord help me! I have a thing for these bully romances, no matter how in plausible they are.
I love Cam, Jackson, and Sawyer. I’m livid with Drew, Charlie, Jane and can’t stand Trent. Her blasé dismissal of him cracks me up.
This book has alllll the unrealistic factors but I couldn’t get enough. Page after page, I couldn’t get enough.
Don’t get me started on the father, for the love of god I hope he gets his. Best quote of the book said to a non doctor:

Teenage drama.
Enemies and rivalry.

“I want to feel something real,” I reply without uncertainty. “I want to let go of these chains that bind my body. To feel like I’m in control even if it’s only an illusion.”

Cruel Intentions is the first book in Siobhan Davis’ Rydeville High Elite Series. And when I tell you that this book is utterly unique, all-consuming, and oh so captivating..

⭐️ 5 "Elite" Stars ⭐️
Cruel Intentions had been on my radar since its release a few weeks back and I just couldn’t resist the pull of the bully / enemies-to-lovers tropes. Siobhan Davis had me transfixed with this first novel in the Rydeville High Elite Series bleeding with so much angst. It’s set in high school, but don’t let it fool you because this story is bursting with violence, depravity, sexy encounters and a whole lot of secrets. It’s certainly not for everyone so beware!

Whelp - it’s been a while since I’ve written a review, so forgive me if I’m a little rusty. I’m going to keep this pretty short as I read this a while ago and I'm only going with what I can remember of it.

I know had mixed emotions throughout this one. The writing was good, it had a pretty packed and exciting plot, yet it was just more of the same twisted, bizarre behaviour that author’s seem to think goes on in high school. Or at least, what they think we wished went on in high schools.
