Six months ago, I arrived in Enfield looking for a fresh start. Scarred by an old incident, I hoped life in a new town would help me finally accept myself, but I was wrong because the big change brought something way worse. Blake Jones.

I was on Blake’s radar from the first day of our senior year, when he humiliated me in front of the whole school with a “welcome party.” Ho

Blake isn't fighting any of his fears. He's just hurting women and acts like a piece of shit. Going through shit doesn't give you the right to step over others and then have the audacity to call yourself a fighter for doing so. ...more

Jessica and Blake's story

As always, this author writes a story of raw feeling and tortured characters whose personal insecurities manifest as caustic interactions with their love interests. In this story Jessica discovers and fights her feelings for her tormentor Jake, simultaneously her self-image. Jake battles internal demons and a tragic past displaced onto Jessica. Eventually, both suffer from insecurities the other attempts to heal.

A slow burn, which allowed for lots of story depth, charact

I have been looking forward to this particular story ever since I started reading the Bullied series as I was fascinated by the dynamics between Blake and Jessica and the story of how he came to be her bully. As she never tried to go out of her way to annoy or hassle him and they had no connection whatsoever but from her very first day, she was Blake's target, and then we read in the third book of Sarah and Hayden's story that Jessica was starting to develop romantic feelings for Blake and she h ...more

I came into this without reading the first three books of the series. It didn't change anything anyway since the main character always mentioned everyone's backstory when the situation was relevant. Speaking of Jess, I didn't really like the way her voice was written. A lot of things were told rather than shown, and what was shown was later told. The subtext was always spelled out for us.

I wish the author focused more on the empowerment part rather than the romance. With stories like these, I've

Truthfully, it's not as good as I had hoped. I love the original 3 with all of my heart, but this one was a little harder to read. I think my main problem with this one is just how it seems to be sarah just with a differect name and body type. Personally I think that it was really hard to see these stories as different, it almost feels like it just repeated itself. I think Vera is a great writer and I hope that she's see this as a helpful criticism rather than shutting her down. I hope that you ...more

I received this book as an arc in exchange for an honest review. I rated it as a 3.5.

Much preferred this book the first 3 if I'm being honest. I felt like i was more invested in Blake and Jess's relationship. My heart broke for what Blake had been through previously, it helped explain his fears and phobias as a slightly more mature adult, a little. However it doesn't excuse him for the way he treats Jess initially, in terms of the physical bullying and making her feel like she's worthless.

I can definitely classify wattpad books as my guilty pleasure. More often then not I will read 2 pages and close the story. Once in a while I'll stumble onto something desent and finish it. That's exactly what happened in this case. Yes, I read all 4 of them. Yes, the books are ok if you mindlessly read them and just take them for what they are - wattpad stories.
The problem occurs when the author whether it is a book or a netflix show (you know the one with thirteen reasons🤔) tries to put deep

I have to be honest and admit I should not have read Trapped right after the other three books. I was emotionally drained from the others and you have already met Blake and Jessica from those stories. So you know that Trapped is going to be horribly emotional and you are going to want to punch the crap out of Blake.

Throughout the other stories, I felt so bad for Jessica. She is not as strong as Sarah and she needs that place to hideaway from people like Blake. And Blake being the jerk he is, kno

This book pleasantly surprised me.
For the first part I thought it was going to be like the others that I didn't quite enjoy, but then the plot grew depth that I never saw coming. I couldn't look away. There was no yo-yoing like the other books, and my heart broke for both characters.
Then that twist...
Definitely recommend, stick with it, it's definitely worth it.

To be completely honest, I did not like this story as much as I thought I was gonna like it. It was too predictable for me, and my mainly issue was that Jessica was too envious, jealous, a bit selfish, and did things that they were just wrong. I was very disappointed in Jessica, and the way she acted, she was truly immature. Blake was at wrong too, but for some reason, I have more issues with Jessica than with Blake. I just didn't like how Jessica put trade that in reality her and Sarah were not ...more

I love bully stories and definitely expected it for this book, however I felt it a bit predictable and short on the hotness department. Blake and Jess's story has lots of fears and past issues, I liked those issues a bit refreshing in this type of story, the pacing of the story was a bit slow for my liking and some things seemed a bit repetitive, but I enjoy the dark part of it. The whole series is preferable to be read, but if you want to read it as a standalone, the author provides main clues ...more

Man!

"Blake had been crushing me day by day. He tainted my self-image, to the point where I disliked everything about myself."

4 Bullied Stars!!! Just when I think I can't be more obsessed with this series, Vera sucks me back in!

Jessica or "Jess" is new to East Willow High. She's a quiet girl who keeps to herself for the most part and deals with issues from her past. She's in therapy for numerous things, including an eating disorder. Blake is the captain of the football team, and

This book is about Jessica and Blake primarily, with Blake having bullied her from the first day she’d arrived at the school six months previously, things definitely didn’t improve for Jessica over that period of time with him.

I really liked Jess and my heart went out to her in the other books, so by this story, I was ready to tie Blake up and demand he a) stop bullying her 😁 and b) open up about his past. Then when things started to change and he obviously heard me, 🤣, I just wanted to wrap Bla

She just wanted senior year to go smoothly. New school, new start, and no more bullying.

But then comes the welcome party on her first day, and all the hope she had fades to nothing.

He was doing better, he could breathe again, and then there she was begging for his attention.

Well she would get it, he would make sure of it ....

This is the fourth book in the bullied series, and whilst it can be read as a standalone you would get more from the story if you read Bullied, Pained and Damaged first. The

The much-anticipated book delivered alright.
Angsty? Check.
Growing characters? Check.
Hot romance? Hell yes, CHECK.

To be honest, I enjoyed this way more than I did with the 3 previous books in the series. I think the author heard her readers and improved several things that were a bit...unsettling in the earlier books. Plus, I absolutely loved reading something that approached such delicate issues with so much tact and promoting seeking professional help with a lot of naturality and openness.

Firstly thank you Vera for writing another amazing and soul destroying book (but in a good way). Beautifully written as always and I love how you can write these stories so well, they give you a glimpse of real life issues and people who suffer with B.P.D, PTSD, depression and body shaming, you show that sometimes life isn't always sunshine and rainbows and I love that about these books. Reading about Blake and Jessica's story was heart wrenching. I felt like I wa

There is only one reason I placed a rating for this book and it's because I felt I needed to write a review...

Make no mistake this book is a full ode to justification of

VERBAL ABUSE
MENTAL ABUSE
PHYSICAL ABUSE
BODY SHAMING
SLUT SHAMING
AND SO MANY OTHER FORMS OF ABUSE.

IF A PERPETRATOR IS EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO RECOGNIZE "HIS TRIGGER" THEN HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO RISE ABOVE BULLYING.

ITS A CHOICE TO VICTIMISE AND MALICIOUSLY HURT SOMEONE WHEN YOU ARE ALSO A VICTIM IN YOUR OWN RIGHT.

Trapped is the fourth book in the Bullied series written by author Vera Hollis. This emotional bully romance can be read as a standalone, although I do recommend reading the series in order. I believe it will give you a better foundation to appreciate and understand the storyline. Just know that it’s only a suggestion.

Trapped tells the story of Jessica Metts and Blake Jones. Jessica has low self-esteem, and she’s recently

I want to start out saying that I'm a fan of Vera Hollins, and the previous books were impossible to put down, however, I had some issues with Trapped. Jessica is an overweight teenage girl, so you already know that it's a hindrance for her because let's face it, most women struggle with body issues even as adults (I sure the hell do still), so I wanted to hug her hard. Blake is the anti-hero, yes I didn't stutter because I NEVER warmed up to him. He's hated Jessica since the moment he saw her & ...more

I received an arc in exchange for an honest review.

Reading Jess and Blake's story was a delight!

In reading Sarah and Hayden's story you see just how much of a sweet girl that Jess is. I enjoyed being in her mind as you see that she is more than just this sweet girl and that she too faces dark troubles. I did feel slightly uncomfortable at a particular moment in the novel, but I love how Vera touched upon an important issue that most young girls face; low self-esteem.

So, here’s the thing…I love a good bully story, love them! But this one was….wow. I knew it would be intense based off the trigger warnings, and I can deal with that, I’ve read some DARK stuff. But this was just so hard to get into. I appreciated the fact that you could read this book alone if you wanted to, things that happened in past books were easily explained in this one and it still flowed. Blake was a serious ant-hero you guys. Like it was aggressive! And Jess was so sweet and so meek. An ...more

Trapped by Vera Hollins is the first book from this series that I have read and I found into to be extremely intense. This story is narrated through the eyes of Jessica Metts.This book is filled with triggers so keep that in mind before you choose to read it.

So some of my favourite moments in this book are when Jessie starts to finally stand up for herself because it made me really proud of her. I enjoyed watching her grow as a character and start to overcome the trauma that she has been through
