Wait. No. It isn’t your fault.
None of this is your fault.

'YOU FOR HER' is the second full length suspense novel in Bella Jewel's 'The edge of Retaliation' series. It picks up where the first book This for That left off.

God I love the covers associated with this series!! After falling down that horrendous cliffy in book #1 I needed this book in my hands like my last breath! And the punches to the heart just kept coming..

"You For Her" started exactly where "This For That" ended. When she found out about the truth, and that they have nothing real; it was a bit too late. She was falling for him and now she had to tell everything inside herself that everything was just a bunch of lies. So she had to get ready to face them and pretend everything is fine and meanwhile making her next move…

Told in single POV, 1st person. It’s the second installment in "The Edge of Retaliation" series, e

I have been on pins and needles ever since that huge cliffhanger the previous book, This for That, ended with. I am not a fan of cliffhangers, but somehow I have gotten used to them...(well kind of) 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659  Must be the number of cliffhangers I have been confronted with this year. Now I am immune of sorts, which is a good thing, because this book, yeah you guessed it....another cliffhanger !!!

This one starts exactly where This for That left us. Now I can't really say too much because that would spoiler

I devoured this in literally 2 and a half hours. I couldn't stop reading. I opened the book on my kindle and didn't put it down until it was finished.

This book picked up right where This for That left off and maaaaaaaan, it was a crazy journey. I feel like I was literally swept up into the story and then put back down after I hit the cliffhanger.

I really don't want to give anything away so i'll be brief. This book consisted of heartbreak, betrayal, and the need for justice. This book was even mo

I dont know what to think of this story...
I was so excited by the first book that I just couldn't wait for the next one. The first half of the book was awesome. Callie was determined to find out exactly what happened to Celia and also after what she found out she knew that she should keep on pretending to be in the dark.
I was disappointed in Tanner, i really thought that he was the good guy. But clearly there was more going on that what we thought we knew.

Book 2 picks up exactly where the previous book left off. Callie now knows the truth and has to decide her next move.

** The following are my thoughts about this book: **
- told from Callie’s POV only. Not my favorite, but it worked.

- At 44% ALL the secrets were revealed and everyone knew what had happened. I was glad the secrets weren't spread out over three books, but wondered what would happen with the plot if the secrets were known. Well, the plot took an interesting turn I w

Picks up just after the cliffy; Callie is on the war path ready to takedown anyone who gets in her way. This must just be a “it’s me” thing, because it feels like everyone else loves this series but me. I was hoping I would get hooked with book 2, but once again; I struggled… like I almost DNF at 87%; I’m just not feeling it. The “mystery” seems silly, everything is a bid deal, and Callie is so over dramatic about everything. I know this is for adults, but I feel like I’m reading Nancy Drew, or ...more

Second installment of this wild ride is a cross-country chase (no pun intended -- you'll understand if you've been reading this series). There's lots of action this go-round and feelings surface right and left. Things are uncovered that are unexpected. And dang if there isn't another cliffy and a wait for the third and final installment. This cliffy was a doozy -- and I hope that Bella Jewel makes it a quick wait to save us all.

A few too many editing errors in this book for my liking. I didn't t

You for her - The Edge Of Retaliation Book 2
By Bella Jewel

Ok... I didn’t think Bella could top ‘This For That’ (book 1) but I have to say, she went above and beyond in this one . I just loved it, couldn’t put it down .

There was not a lot of s3x scenes but I totally understood why. This was more about uncovering the truth, dealing with a ton of hurt, betrayal and anger so if the Author added a ton of S3xual scenes it wouldn’t have matched the storyline, and for someone that LOVES reading about

Ok this might be the shortest review I write to date!!

I can’t say anything about this book besides READ THIS SERIES!!!

You For Her is the second book in the Edge of Retaliation Series by Bella Jewel. It is NOT a standalone novel and Book 1…. This For That….. NEEDS to be read first!! I will also warn readers this book does end with a CLIFFHANGER!! and it is just as brutal as the first book. I need the final book NOW!!!

This is a review for books 1 and 2.

Book 1 - 3 stars
Book 2 - 2 stars

I have to say I started off liking this series but it has definitely tailed off for me and I won't be reading the last book. I guessed so many of the twists early on (I've probably read too many of these books and they don't shock me anymore haha!) and so many things annoyed me in the end.

I didn't feel Callie and Tanner's connection at all.

This book was highly anticipated by me and I want to thank the author for not taking forever and a day to get this second one out after the HUGE cliffhanger in the first one, now one warning for you--- there is ANOTHER cliffhanger in this one and it is kind of a big one too!

Bella Jewel makes her characters so freaking amazing. I can feel exactly what Callie, Tanner, Andrea, Ethan, and Jo are feeling in this book and it is just wow. I cannot give any spoilers away because that is just stupid, but

So very well written. But I cannot stomach a weak heroine. For all her great plans they all just flopped because she “loved him” the love she felt for him was manipulated and contrived by him. It wasn’t real. She’s everything I hate in women. She’s the type of woman that when he hits her she will make up some bull crap excuse for him. He had a long day. He’s been stressed at work. Fact is, hes a bully. His friends were bullies. Liars, disgusting human beings who I would never ever associat

The second part of The Edge of Retaliation is just as captivating if not more so than the first book. As more lies are discovered and pain and hurt is brought to the surface, confusion will reign down on so many of them. Callie will be torn between hating and loving the people that she thought she could trust and Tanner will be left angry as he fights his inner turmoil for feelings he wasn’t supposed to have. As truths are laid out and new plans are made, hearts will be put to the test. Tanner a ...more

Not Again !

I would like to say that I enjoyed this book but two cliffhangers are just too much for me.

As for the story in itself. I absolutely loved the plot. I enjoyed the suspense and how the author kept me on the edge as each little twist intricately revealed itself.

I'm not quite certain whether or not to move on with the next book when it comes out. The ending here was abrupt and took me by complete surprise. Possibly I won't be able to resist learning what happened but if so then at leas
I simply couldn’t relate to the H at all. Felt like a two dimensional character. Wasn’t much of a suspect to be honest.

The H acts like a victim and calls the h selfish (wtf how dumb can you be?)

Honestly the only likeable characters were Jo and the h (yes, I’m putting the h in the second place because I didn’t like her that much either)

It honestly didn’t feel like a Bella Jewel book at all. It felt like it was written by a amateur writer writing their first book.

Anyway I won’t be finishing this

I adore Bella Jewel!
After finishing the previous book with an epic cliffhanger, Callie tries to know the whole truth. And honestly, I couldn't read fast enough to know what was going to happen.
There is a third book. But it's OK. I'm not ready to let this characters go.
But that's Bella Jewel's magic. And I will never get tired of saying it 😎. Her books are all perfect.
If you haven't read one of her books, this is the perfect opportunity to do it.

Another cliffhanger

I thought this was the end but another cliffhanger. I hate when an author does this. Now we have to wait again. I just don't know if it is worth it anymore. I'm so mad this story started off so good now it's just stopped. Moved to fast to keep up. I felt lost being told the story after the fact and then felt like I was trying to catch up.

Nope. Whole lotta Did Not Finish. I admit i was intrigued by this series and really liked the first book. This book started off great, not repeating the story from the first book - and i appreciate when authors write this way. Then this story just got stupid not too far in. While the sex scenes in these type of books crack me up with their terminology, that's easy enough to get past/through; buut when the heroine is stupid, impetuous, and/or as self-centered as this bitch?

Was the feelings or the friendships based on lies and revenge???
Did Tanner actually have feeling for Callie or just part of his plans??
What secrets did Tanner’s best friend cover up??
Did Ethan follow all of Tanner’s plans when he was serving as a guard and a ‘friend’ to Callie??

This part will uncover those questions and how Tatum and the death of Celia connect.
Plus what other plans for Revenge does Tanner think about to involve Jo, Callie, Ethan, Tatum and also Garrett that leads to the cliffhan

There are so many twists and turns in this series it's hard to know what to expect next. I loved the development of the characters and the story. Bella did such an amazing job at helping the reader to connect to the characters. Even though it was told from the first-person view of Callie it was easy to understand how the other characters felt as well. Excellent job. This series made my heart race and break. Couldn't put it down. ...more
