“I need to use the bathroom,” I blurt, interrupting the minister just before he reaches the part where we say our vows.

Sweet Retribution by Siobhan Davis

My Review:

I couldn’t wait to read Sweet Retribution. With the cliffhanger ending of Twisted Betrayal, I needed to know what happened to Kai and Abby. So, I squealed like a tween seeing her celebrity crush in person when I saw that it was up for review. Sweet Retribution was everything that I hoped for and more!!

I loved Abby in Sweet Retribution. She hit rock bottom in Twisted Betrayal. The things that happened to her hurt my heart. She didn’t dwell on them. Instead, she took everything and used that anger and hurt to fuel her revenge. Even though she was dealing with some insane adult issues, she was still a teenager, and she acted like it. Her scenes with the twins cemented that for me. Plus, I got to see her catty side again, which was a massive hit with me in the previous two books.

I loved Kai too. Along with Abby, he hit rock bottom. Like Abby, he used what he learned to fuel his revenge. I loved how in love with Abby he was. If I had any doubts about his feelings for her, they were erased in this book. He was with Abby every step of the way with her revenge. Of course, Kai wouldn’t be Kai without his anger and rage. But, in this book, he was careful and didn’t go off the rails.

I wanted to shake Charlie. Every scene he was in, I kept thinking to myself: “WTF is he THINKING!!!!” He was playing a dangerous game with Abby and Trent’s fathers. He did do his best to protect Abby, his mother, and his sister but ended up failing (well failed Abby and his mother). His rock bottom came about the middle of the book, and I felt terrible for him. But, he did it to himself. He did redeem himself at the end of the book, though.

Abby’s father disgusted me. He was a slimy, nasty piece of work that deserved everything that he got. Every scene with him made my stomach turn. All I have to say is that he earned everything that he got.

I do want to give a heads up, though. Sweet Retribution doesn’t hold back anything when it comes to Abby’s father’s dungeon. Some scenes made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. There were brief descriptions of rape (adult and child). There was the talk of incest and sexual abuse (which made me thankful that Abby’s father didn’t use her like that). There were descriptions of forced procedures and forced incarceration.

There were a few twists in Sweet Retribution’s plotline. Two, I guessed as early as Twisted Betrayal. But, the way they were revealed was shocking. The third, I had a feeling something happened, but I wasn’t sure. So when that was announced, it was a shock also.

The end of Sweet Retribution was excellent. Abby and Kai’s hard work paid off. I was disappointed at specific things that happened. I can’t say much more than that. The epilogue was one of the best that I have read. Loved it!!

I am super excited about this, Jackson, Sawyer, and Charlie are getting their romances. I can’t flipping wait!!! The only one I didn’t see was Drew. I hope that he gets his own (hopefully with Jane).


I would give Sweet Retribution an Adult rating. There is explicit sex. There is language. There is graphic violence. I would recommend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.

I would reread Sweet Retribution. I would recommend it to family and friends.

**I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**

He thinks he’s broken me. That I’m finally under his complete control. But I’m biding my time, gathering intel, making plans, and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. So, when an unexpected savior appears—offering me a way out—I grasp it with both hands.

His depravity knows no bounds, and now, he’s taken everything from me.

Excerpt:

He shoots me a shit-eating grin Jackson would be proud of as he locks the door and stalks toward me. “What the fuck does it look like?”

“Like you’re crazy as shit and have a death wish,” I say, backing away from him.

His eyes are thick with lust, his body cloaked in anger, and he wears it proudly like body armor.

I scramble around desks as I avoid capture. All the while he advances. Like this menacing form hell-bent on punishing me.

Liquid lust races through me, and my core pulses with a desperate need.

I love it when he’s like this.

Looking at me like he wants to fuck me so hard I’ll bleed.

My body purrs in anticipation as my back slams against a solid obstacle.

I know I’m sick and twisted, but I think that’s why we’re so well matched.

He wants to punish me, and I want to be punished.

Twisted Betrayal (Rydeville High Elite: Book 2) by Siobhan Davis

My Review:

Twisted Betrayal starts five weeks after the events in Cruel Intentions. Abby is at Parkhurst against her will. Desperate to get out, Abby is forced to agree to the conditions that her father forced upon her. But, things aren’t what they seem, and Abby must choose who she trusts carefully. Because if her father found out what she was planning, she and everyone she cares for will be killed. What is Abby planning on doing? And can she pull it off? What about Kaiden? Will Abby reunite with him?

I was devastated when I started reading Twisted Betrayal. Because of the cliffhanger in Cruel Intentions, I had no idea who or what was going to happen to Abby. My worst fears were recognized when she awoke at Parkhurst. She was at the mercy of her father. Out of all the people, he was the first on my list of “people who shouldn’t have Abby.”

I knew that the book was going to get intense when Kaiden’s brothers kidnapped her. I thought I was prepared from the last book. I thought the antics that Kaiden and Abby put me through as a reader was the worse it was going to get. Yeah, right. This book was double everything in Cruel Intentions.

Kaiden and Abby still had some serious chemistry. I did wonder if they would end up having sex. Mainly because of Abby’s feelings for him at the beginning of the book. When they did finally have sex, oh boy, was it explosive. The author outdid herself with the sex scenes too!!

Abby’s father disgusted me. The thing he said. The stuff he DID!! There was a specific scene at the end of the book that made me want to throw up. I hope he gets what is coming to him in book 3!!

The end of the book shocked me. Not only because of what happened (there were several things) but who was involved. Looking back, hints were leading up to that twist. And, again, the book ends on a cliffhanger. Why do that to me!!! I can’t wait until October!!


I would give Twisted Betrayal an Adult rating. There is sex. There is language. There is violence. I would recommend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.

I would reread Twisted Betrayal. I would recommend it to family and friends.

Cruel Intentions—Book 1

Sweet Retribution—Book 3 (expected publication date: October 1st, 2019)

Book synopsis:

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees…

Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen.

But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape. 

Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world. 

Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control.

Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.

Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancé. 

I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. 

Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivaled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious.

My life will hang in the balance.

But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight.


My review:

I had to take a minute to reflect on this book before I sat down and wrote the review. With everything that happened in the book, I needed to make sure my head was on straight enough to review Cruel Intentions. Now that it is, I was blown away by this book. I wasn’t expecting to devour it within a couple of hours. The book is that good!!

The plotline of Cruel Intentions was fantastic. Abigail is part of the “elite” squad that runs the school with an iron fist. While people think she has everything, she doesn’t. Abby wants to escape her life, which has become unbearable. Which is why she gave away her virginity to a stranger who helped her in a time of need. She is shocked when the stranger turns out to be none other than Camden Marshall, and he hates her. Cam thinks he can use Abby to get secrets on her father. What Cam doesn’t know is that Abby would do anything to escape her father and bring him down. But, Cam is hiding secrets. What happens when those secrets are revealed? Can Abby survive the backlash?

I loved Abby. If I didn’t know that she was 17, I would have thought she was older. She was loyal to her friends (except Trent). She knew what buttons to push on Cam to get a reaction out of him. She was tough and ruthless. What she did to Rochelle and the other kids cemented that. She handled Cam’s meanness (for lack of a better word) with grace and attitude. I do think that she should have confronted all 3 of the boys (Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson) sooner.

I thought Cam was a colossal jerk until the middle of the book. He was so mean to Abby. The things he did to her made me cringe. Seriously, making her kneel like that and then egging Rochelle on? Uggh. He was also secretive. There is secretive, and then there is secretive. He kept things so under wraps, it wasn’t funny. I don’t know if I believe what he said at the end of the book. If he knew what was being set up. He seemed genuinely shocked about what was revealed.

The secondary characters made the books. Charlie, Drew, Sawyer, Jackson, and Xavier added to the plot. They fleshed out the plotline and added some much needed comic relief at times. Charlie and Sawyer were the hardest to read. Charlie remained an enigma until the end of the book, as did Sawyer. I also had my suspicions about Xavier too. I can’t wait to see what these characters will do in book 2!!

I couldn’t stand Abby’s father or Trent’s father. They both left a bad taste in my mouth. The things that Trent’s father did to her at the beginning of the book. Holy crap!! I did feel bad for Trent, though. I don’t think that he was inherently a bad person. Abby’s memories of him from when he was younger showed that. I do believe that he was molded into what he was in the book. I know, feeling bad for a bad guy, right. But when someone is over the top (sexually, behaviorally, etc.), they are trying to compensate or hide something. So, we’ll see what happens to him in book 2.

I did like the main plotline of Cruel Intentions. I thought that Cam and Abby’s relationship (or lack of one) was perfectly showcased. As was his hatred of her. I did wish that the reason why Cam hated Abby came out soon in the book.

I am going to include a trigger warning in my review. Abby goes through a lot of abuse at the hands of Cam and his friends. She is kidnapped and blackmailed into doing what they wanted. Cam humiliates her every chance he gets. He verbally abuses her and there was one instance of physical abuse. The one scene that got me was when Cam and Jackson groped her after being kidnapped by them. This all happens at the beginning of the book, and it was tough to read. But, after they all talk (which should have happened earlier), everything stops. So, I suggest not to read this book if any of what I wrote triggers you.

From the middle of the book on was wild. There were times that I had to stop reading and say, “Is this happening?” It was also lightning fast. I had to reread passages because I missed stuff. Not because I had to. Because the book was so dang fast.

The end of Cruel Intentions was cruel, and it ended on a cliffhanger. I do not like cliffhangers. But, this one did its job, and I need to read book 2!!! I need to find out what happens to Abby.


I would give Cruel Intentions an Adult rating. There is sex. There is language. There is violence. I would recommend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.

I would reread Cruel Intentions I would recommend it to family and friends.
