And Beck Clermont controlled them all.
He was arrogant and conceited, and from the moment I met him, he had made up his mind about me.
Dangerously handsome and wickedly cruel, he had no intention of letting me spend my senior year under the radar.
The secrets of old money ran deep, and even though I barely knew them, the sins of my family had put a target on my back.
He was a hurricane, and I was unprepared for the storm.
His touch fatal. His impact irreparable.
There was no negotiation.
He stole my heart. Without warning, without permission.

I have an obsession with dark high school bully romance and let me say that The Touch of A Villain is at the top of my list. This is my first experience with Holly Renee and what an introduction it was.
The characters are written amazingly well. Even the ones that you are meant to hate, will be emblazoned in your brain. Josie and Beck have a love/hate relationship, due to Josie’s step-brother. She wants him, he wants her, but is there an ulterior motive with Beck? The chemistry, the angst, the hatred...it’s all there. Everything you want in a romance book and then some.
Be forewarned that it does end in a cliffhanger, so I pray that we won’t have to wait too terribly long. Josie and Beck's story continues in book 2 of The Boys of Clermont Bay series. How I wish it was now!!
If you can actually open the book past the cover *wink* *wink* This book was amazing!!
contemporary romance, Holly Renee brings readers a pinch of angst, an indulgence of heat, and the perfect amount of heart in every book.
