So this is the first Bella Jewel book that I have read and i really enjoyed it. A lot. It is told from dual point of views while also going back and forth between the present and past. You would think that all of that jumping around would be a bit confusing but I thought it flowed very nicely. I found myself curious about the back story of how Katia and Marcus came to be and then waiting on the edge of my seat to see what happens when she finds out the truth. And it is inevitable that she will find out, so you spend the majority of the book anticipating the big blow out.
Marcus is one of those asshole heroes that you just love to hate. Although in the beginning, it was really just hate for me. The sex between these two is definitely hot, but then Marcus adds a deep chill with his cold, emotionless behaviors. He did grow on me as the story progressed and that frozen shell starts to crack. It is the tiniest crack, but it gives me a little hope that maybe he is redeemable.
This was quick and intriguing read that ends on a cliffy and will leave you begging for book two. I can't wait for the conclusion!
|"let's go to the bathroom, get you all fancy and then you can sit at the bar like the sexy biatch you are and get yourself a cock for the night."|
"Do you want to come, Katia?"|
"I didn't come for a picnic."
"I very much came for a picnic, and the first thing I'm going to eat, precious, is you."
|"Sweet fuckin' pussy, Katia."|

Title: 'Til Death
Author: Bella Jewel
Series: 'Til Death Volume One
Genre: Contemporary Romance
They say there's a fine line between love and hate.
I married a douchebag.
I didn't know it at the time.
He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.
I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.
Then he left me high and dry.
Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.
He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.
I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.
I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.
With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.
Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.
I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.
He has to pay.
And pay he will.
*This is part of a two book series and it will contain a HEA – Readers over 18+
