As far as the boys who run America’s most exclusive international academy are concerned, I’m an unwelcome interloper, an inconvenience, and they’re determined to make my life a living hell.When Wren Jacobi sets eyes on Wolf Hall Academy’s newest inductee, all he sees is an easy mark. A reserved little girl with a target painted on her back. He knows nothing of my troubled past, though. Nothing of my mother’s suspicious death, or the horrific treatment I’ve had to endure at the hands of my psychotic father.And he has no idea of the lengths that I, unassuming little Elodie Stillwater, will go to in order to break the savage beast who dreams of breaking me first.There’s a wolf stalking the forests that surround my new school.
Little does he know…
There are far scarier predators lurking out there in the dark.
I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would! Maybe because it really didn’t feel like a bully romance. It started out that way but it didn’t last long. It quickly changed into something deeper and a good romance.
I really enjoyed our main characters Wren and Elodie. They both had some issues but they really made a good couple. I love me some misunderstood emo boys and that’s exactly what Wren was. He had some anger and stalking issues. However, he was a big softie under all that and would do anything for Elodie. He started off wanting to ruin her but he fell for her.
Elodie was a strong character. Mentally and physically. She went through quite a bit that no teenager should have to go through. With a father like hers, I’m surprised she’s not a complete basket case. Even with all of the messed up things she went through, she still let her guard down and was open to falling in love with Wren.
There is a bit of mystery surrounding this school and the students. We have some missing students and so many secrets. There was so much that I didn’t see coming. There were also some things that I could have done without.
Overall, I enjoyed this one and can’t wait for the next book in this series.
