Rich boys sin best
Gossip always goes around at Falcon Elite Prep.
Everyone knows Nate Wilson, the most popular football quarterback and every girl’s crush.
But there’s more behind those drop-dead gorgeous eyes and that killer smile …
He’s a notorious heartbreaker …
And he’s got his eyes set on me.
The twisted games he plays are cruel and dangerous.
He teases and tempts me … just to ruin me.
Because I know the one thing he doesn’t want anyone to know.
A big, dirty secret …
And there’s nothing bad boys won’t do to keep a secret buried.
There is a saying, "Its a thin line between love and hate."
This line sums up this story.
We meet Nate and Sam in this book. Nate is the rich kid at school who gets a real life reality check a wild drunken party goes awry. Sam is a girl who is just as rich but shy and quiet. In this book we explore the depraved world of the rich elite. In the beginning of the book I will be honest, it was hard for me. I was frustrated wanting to know what happened. The very first chapters colored me intrigued and then pissed me off. This can be a good thing. Books that provoke emotion are a good sign that I'm invested in the story. I will also say, I didn't like how he went about things. Without giving anything away I would have rather he went the opposite route to get what he wanted then it ended up being for real.
The sex was good (for the type of book it was) if you're looking for steam but you won't find a lot of it and I understand. We are talking about teenagers, and a full raunch book with teenagers would be weird.
All in all I would recommend everyone read it. Its fun and gives a glimpse into the dark side of wealth.
Things aren’t always what they seem and don’t judge a book by its cover. These are the two things that I have walked away with after reading Cruel Boy.
This story made me feel like I was in high school again. There were definitely cliques. The rich, the jocks, the elite. Fortunately for Nate, he was all 3. A rich high school football player who couldn’t want for anything; except maybe his mom, the one thing he wanted but couldn’t have. In Cruel Boy, Nate harbors a secret that can absolutely destroy him. This secret is known by only one other ... Sam. She knows what Nate did and he doesn’t know if he can trust her with this secret. This is where the high school cat and mouse, tit for tat starts. The threats, the bullying, the playground antics. However, Sam is no slouch. She is not afraid of Nate and stands up for what she believes in. What makes her different is the fact that she can see through his pain and they become close and the truth comes out. And boy are things not what they seem.
I really enjoyed this story. I will admit that the first 1/4 of the book took me a bit to get into, but after that, I was addicted. Great read and love the high school bully romance!
