Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or numb to all emotions? The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between. Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone. Except Tatum. I love her so much that I hate her. I hate that I can't let her go. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her - or anyone else. So I hurt her. I pushed her away. But I still need her. She centers me. Engaging her, challenging her, pushing her - it's the one last part of me that feels anything anymore. But then she went and screwed everything up. She left for a year and came back a different girl. Now, when I push, she pushes back...and I'm not sure either one of us will ever be the same.

I really liked being able to get things from Jared's POV. I also liked that this wasn't a complete retelling of Bully. There were a lot of great added scenes.
When Jared stayed with Tate's Dad.
Hobbs brought more passion to the story I think.
I had a lot of the same reactions I had while reading Bully. There was a scene that still managed to piss me off even though I knew the outcome already.
This a great series! I've become invested in all the characters and anxious to see the various story lines to the end. The narrators are perfect for this story and they made me want to continue through the other books. A SEXY MUST READ!
Thanks to the very different ending (time frame different, not the story changing) this book definitely tops the original pov in Bully.
My heart literally ached for these characters at times. I hurt with them, grew angry with them, and also laughed out loud in parts. To me, there is no higher compliment to be paid to the author than to say, THANK YOU, you made me feel every bit of this book!
The narration was flawless as well, and added so much more emotion to the story.
I lived that this is Jared's story. I was desperate to get my hands on it. The best part was that this us not a word for word retelling of Bully. It has a few key situations from Jared's point of view but it's his story entirely. And what a story...
I can't wait to see what is in store for everyone else.
I loved this book!! I read bully and when I saw it was Jarred's pov, I just had to read it. It really helped you understand him and love him much more. It also make me love Tate a lot more as well.
The aspect I most enjoyed about this book is it showed life in a not so "perfect" way. It brought up subject matter and issues that are very real for a lot of people. What I liked least is the entire book was about teenagers. I knew it would start from a teenage POV, but I didn't realize the entire book was about high school.
For me personally, I would have preferred the characters to be older; even if it was just their early twenties.
I think actually being able to hear a male voice and they way he used his voice in certain scenes added to the story.
I don't think so. Not that it's a bad story, because it isn't, I'm just not really into teen love stories.
