Aug 30, 2020 rated it it was amazing
Loved it. Hated it. Addicted to it.

Bullied is a dark story which is twisted around truth and lies. One woman’s pain is spiralling out of control but the pains not just hers.

Carla lost her daughter but she can’t let go. Not until she can uncover the truth.

Three stories. More than three lives are wrecked.

This is one dark crazy car crash you won’t be able to look away from. Are you ready for Bullied?

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This book is full of mystery and suspense. T

You need to read this book without seeing any spoilers because then you can fully appreciate how clever the author is at tackling what unfortunately is a common problem these days.

Goodness knows where to start so let’s do as the song tell us and start at the beginning .
The Title - BulLied . The bully is Marcus Bull - BulL? Lied ? Does he lie? This is a great play on words and starts all the intrigue and suspicion.

Mum Carla is trying to cope with her teenage daughter Lena, who is being bullied.

BulLIED by Andie M Long the best five-star read of the year. I will start this by saying that I’m not telling you about, I’m just telling you why you need to read it, so if you want to get a grasp of the story before you read, pick another review, if you want to know why you need to read this compelling and emotional story stay tuned, as I don’t want to reveal any details of this story, other than the blurb which just made this one of my most anticipated reads. You know where a book has you so g ...more

Mix of emotions!

This was an interesting story that requires you to be emotionally ready for some anger, sadness, guilt and forgiveness. I was really pulled into this story, but there were a few chapters that did a lot of repeating the same things but in different characters point of view. This was necessary to get the full picture and some critical details, but a little frustrating as well. I am glad I did not get discouraged and stop reading because I would never have guessed the ending.

I received an ARC for a review.

I've read other books by Andie M. Long. She is quite the story teller, but BulLied is over the top! Such a YA psychological thriller, but honestly, everyone needs to read this. Ms. Long takes you into the minds of teenagers and clearly uncovers the way they twist their reality to bully someone else. When adults get involved, things go to a whole new level. BulLied shows you exactly why young people lash out the way they do and how those actions alter reality for ma

Wow!! This story has brought out lots of emotions in me. I hate bullying…. full stop. I am certain we’ve all witnessed it and sadly may have even been a victim. This is Carla and Lena’s story and I found it to be very thought provoking indeed. I was saddened to learn the reasons behind some of the behaviours of a few characters and what you read is regrettably someone’s reality. This story certainly affected me as the consequences of people’s actions were unveiled.

Without giving much away BulLIED will have you wanting to know what happens next it had me thinking one minute I knew where it was going then bang a twist .... such a rollercoaster read ... a mum witnessing her daughter being bullied... is everything as it actually is??
Andie m Long is such a fantastic UK writer with a variety of writing styles but I do love her dark side it’s great to see she hasn’t lost her touch

Whoa! This book left my brain scrambled... As a mother I certainly understood Carla's point of view but before the book was over I had decided to hate Marcus, Damon, Sophie, Chloe, Lisa, Ant, Natalie and Mr. Bull. I had also felt so much sorrow for Carla, Marcus and somewhat for Sophie and Ant. Yes, this book caused all the "feels" especially if add in anger and sympathy.
I first fell in love with Andie's writing with her Supernatural Dating Agency books, which were my first supernatural books T

BulLied really gives you insight of a ripple effect.

This is a book that really makes you think. Your actions, betrayal, deceit, lies, words, and ultimately there lack of, acknowledgement. Oh the webs we can weave.

This story gives you the insight of lives being bullied. How ones actions and words do make a impact on those they target. As you read this story you will see that things aren't what they always seem to be. You realise ones life on the outside isn't what it's on the inside.

I was lucky enough to Beta read this before it's release. I make no secret that I don't do Dark so I was slightly apprehensive about the return of Dark Andie. This is a standalone book that focuses on a mum and her teenage daughter who is being bullied at school. Things start to escalate and more and more wild stuff is happening but is everything really as it seems? This book is so real to life that I think it makes it a bit more creepy because you could actually envisage it happening. I loved t ...more

I've read a few of Andie's book and BulLied was one of the best. You think you know where this story is going and it takes so many unusual turns, it kept me on my toes, for sure! Understanding that this is based on a factual event that Andie suffered makes it all the more real. BulLied is a story of a mother's fierce love and protection of her daughter. But it's no all as it seems. We are led to believe one thing about all the characters in this book and then, BAM! Andie throws in a curveball so ...more

This book is one fantastic read with a great storyline and characters that were created with such great detail and depth that I felt like I was sitting on the side lines watching this dark story unfold! This author has a way with putting words to paper that makes you feel like you are part of the story as it unravels!

She's done it again with a book that twists more times than fusilli pasta. For me the the overarching feeling after reading this book was one of self reflection, looking at my own behaviour and that of those around me. I think this book will create a lot of self reflection in the way Underneath did. ...more

I've read Andie Long's other dark stories, so I fully expected to be sucked in. I also expected this one to go places that would be shocking and twisted. My expectations were met and then some, but I don't care to admit that I had a hard time with this one. There are some personal reasons for that struggle, and no, they don't have anything to do with being bullied or even dealing with a bully, but that struggle was very real. What it came down to is that there were times I had to walk away for a ...more

I went into this book fairly blind just excited as it was a book from Andie and it was a totally different type of book to what I was expecting but that is in a totally good way.

This one features a mum who's daughter has been experiencing bullying and when things escalate it takes a dark turn that will break your heart.

Once I started this book I was hooked and didn't want to put it down. I really liked that this story is told in sections from different people so you get to see it all play out

I received an advanced readers copy of Bullied by Andie M Long which is a dark psychological suspense thriller that will be released on September 21, 2020.

The book does come with a WARNING: 18+ contains dark themes

I absolutely love Andie's books! This is the first #DarkAndie book that I have read of hers and it definitely won't be my last. This book kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end.

This is a difficult topic that needs to be addressed and I think Andie did an amazing job addres

Bullied is a story that takes the reader on a journey of pain betrayal and self discovery.

Carla is a mother on a mission and she proves that there is nothing a mother won't do to avenge her child. The story starts with Lena who falls foul of some bullies and what goes from small soon spirals out of control. Carls was written as every parent with those feelings of hopelessness,of wanting to help but not really knowing what to do when everywhere you turn is a blocked wall. Lena has one loyal frie

Incredibly raw and real journey that surprised me as it gave me so much to think about. This has to be one of the hardest reviews I’ve ever written. To truly appreciate this story, you need to jump in with only the book blurb as your guide. What I will say is that Carla is a mother on a mission and I rode the roller coaster with her as she took this intensely emotional and jarring ride. I love how this story was structured which allowed the layers and intertwining moments to unfold in a way that ...more

This one was an interesting read. It's a different type of read then I usually read. There are different people's points of view in this one which was really helpful to get to see what was going on. At some points, I didn't like some of the characters but when I got to see what they were going through I could see why they dd what they did. This book touches on some tough difficult topics. I was hooked by the story and read it in one sitting. ...more

A twisted tale of a mother's pain as lies and deceit struggle to be contained and begin to spiral out of control. With twists and turns, mouth dropping unexpected stomach crunching moments this book has you gripped to the very end, needing more as Carla tells you the story of her daughter Lena and how she can't forgot the past.

Bullying happens every day in life and the people it affects seems to be just the ones directly involved. Real life hurt isn't easy and Lena and Carla justify a way in whi

You have to be prepared before you read this because this will take you on a wild ride. I can't say too much or it will give the story away but from the blurb you can guess what this is about. I loved that we not only get the mother's point of view though, there are several. The last one was tying it all together. I couldn't blink while reading this and I don't even think I would have tried. I couldn't put this down. ...more

Dark lovers add this one to your TBR! Bullied is not to be missed!

BulLIED is a mind mending, jaw dropping, twisted, dark suspenseful read of epic proportions! The entire book is one massive twisted unputdownable dark adventure.

If you’re a parent and have dealt with bullies, or even been bullied yourself you will identify with Carla and her daughter. Andie M Long has done an amazing job with this book, she’s used a mother’s anger and turned it into a brilliantly dark read.

I have contemplated my rating for Bullied by Andie M Long for some time but I would be literally crazy to give this latest release by Andie M Long any less than five stars.
This dark psychological suspense makes you truly consider the lengths that you would go to to protect your children! The tagline is so fitting ‘Hell have no fury like a mother scorned’. What would you do when your life is encased with lies, betrayal and deceit? Be warned this story is not for the faint of heart!

I really enjoyed this thought provoking book that weaves a tale that so many of us have experienced or at least know someone who has. Well written with great thought and detail I was drawn into the lives of these characters that consumed my thoughts.

Carla is dealing with an all too common problem; her daughter Lena is being bullied and she is really upset about it as any parent would be. Marcus Bull is perceived as a vile human being because maybe he is the one bullying Lena along with a few str
It all started with Lena getting picked on by Chole day in and day out. And one day Lena stood up for herself and gave Chole the fight she was asking for. Lena and her mother Carla finally thought the picking would be over but here comes Marcus wanting to be "the cool guy"
