TRYST SIX VENOM BY PENELOPE DOUGLAS
𝑨𝒘𝒂𝒚 𝒈𝒂𝒎𝒆𝒔, 𝒃𝒂𝒄𝒌 𝒔𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒔, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒍𝒐𝒄𝒌𝒆𝒓 𝒓𝒐𝒐𝒎 𝒂𝒇𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒔… 𝑮𝒆𝒕 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒅𝒚!
Marymount girls are good girls. We’re chaste, we’re untouched, and even if we weren’t, no one would know, because we keep our mouths shut.
Not that I have anything to share anyway. I never let guys go too far. I’m behaved.
Beautiful, smart, talented, popular, my skirt’s always pressed, and I never have a hair out of place. I own the hallways, walking tall on Monday and dropping to my knees like the good Catholic girl I am on Sunday.
That’s me. Always in control.
Or so they think. The truth is that it’s easy for me to resist them, because what I truly want, they can never be. Something soft and smooth. Someone dangerous and wild.
Unfortunately, what I want I have to hide. In the locker room after hours. In the bathroom stall between classes. In the showers after practice. 𝑀𝑦 ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑑 𝑠𝑤𝑖𝑚𝑚𝑖𝑛𝑔. 𝑀𝑦 ℎ𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑢𝑝 ℎ𝑒𝑟 𝑠𝑘𝑖𝑟𝑡.
For me, life is a web of secrets. No one can find out mine.
I cross the tracks every day for one reason—to graduate from this school and get into the Ivy League. I’m not ashamed of where I come from, my family, or how everyone at Marymount thinks my skirts are too short and my lipstick is too red.
Clay Collins and her friends have always turned up their noses at me. The witch with her beautiful skin, clean shoes, and rich parents who torments me daily and thinks I won’t fight back.
At least not until I get her alone and find out she’s hiding so much more than just what’s underneath those pretty clothes.
The princess thinks I’ll scratch her itch. She thinks she’s still pure as long as it’s not a guy touching her.
I told her to stay on her side of town. I told her not to cross the tracks.
But one night, she did. And when I’m done with her, she’ll never be pure again.
*TRYST SIX VENOM is a standalone, new adult, bully romance suitable for readers 18+.
This is hands down my favorite read from this exceptional author! Legit one of the best bullymance books I’ve read so far.
I had no idea what was in store when I downloaded this book. Like most, I was completely intrigued by the trope/genre and loved the cover. After all is said and done, I am so happy I picked this book up because I seriously struggled to put it down. I didn’t want to adult AT ALL while reading this high school bully book. That should tell you all you need to know. It was completely captivating and one of the most entertaining books I’ve finished this year.
Here’s what I loved:
Liv and Clay’s story is phenomenal. These characters are polar opposites yet have a connection and depth of understanding of one another that exposes all their underlying struggles and secrets.
Hats off to this author for delivering a narrative that sensitively and authentically portray the teenage angst and drama that girls this age would experience. This is a true bully romance.
The characters are beyond flawed yet pure perfection. The story is entertaining, gripping, and above all unforgettable! I couldn’t put it down and after finishing it, I still think of it often.
Fingers crossed more characters get books soon!
A top read of 2021! Highest recommendation!
