Pretty Venom by Ella Fields
Series: Gray Springs University #3
Publication Date: August 3rd, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Callum Welsh perfected the art of hating me when we were two kids who believed we’d be forced into marriage.
He thought I wanted it, but my only wish had been for him to leave me alone.
Then one afternoon, he stole my first kiss.
Despite all he’d done, everything changed after that.
As the years passed, our hearts thawed, and he no longer hated me.
In fact, he loved me enough to make me his wife.
Until I ruined everything with one stupid mistake.
That hatred returned in the form of cruel words and even crueler deeds.
But we weren’t kids anymore.
I could handle his brand of venom.
He would be mine again, even if it cost me the remains of my heart.

Warning: contains cheating and an anti-hero who might make you throw your kindle.
This book is everything I've come to expect from this author she's upped the angst and really did a number on her readers this time.
I'm not sure I can adequately express just how much Callum and Renee's story affected me. I wanted to know everything about these two and boy oh boy did Ella give it to me in spades.
We follow this couple from innocent friendship to love and hate. As I read I alternated between happiness and full on hatred. I'm sure alot of readers will feel like me, at times I had to take a break from reading because my heart couldn't take the pain I felt.
If you've read the authors previous books you'll know she excels at emotional overload. I can't think of another author who makes me feel as much who makes me as happy or as angry. Her writing for me just gets better with every new book she releases. She can literally be stabbing me I'm the heart in one chapter and making me swoon in the next one.
Another fantastic book from start to finish I can't wait to see what the next release so bring.

I love, LOVE, L-O-V-E hate to lovers stories. It's the passion behind the hate and then transformed into love theater's my heart. The fire and sparks warm ...other parts. Giggle all you want but hate to lovers are intense stories and this one- yikes.
The story of Renee and Callum starts in a fairly perfect way. The stage is set the mood is right and bam! Instant drama. but it's the way it unfolds that causes my heart to seize and my tears to erupt. Even knowing (the blurb tells me so) that things would get bad, I couldn't fathom it.
Ella Fields found the perfect way to destroy the reader's hearts while leaving us holding on to hope. Just keep holding on, because this gets brutal. Absolutely gut-wrenching brutally in the worst way...
Don't worry those tears dry up. You find a way to move on. And maybe, just maybe, you find love CAN be enough.
