My FF romance cherry has been officially popped, and Penelope has found a way for my wicked side to enjoy and thoroughly fall in love with her magical ways of creating a brand new world, with new characters that will have you seeking for more. Starting this book and being introduced to these new characters, brought back so many nostalgic moments to when I dived into the DEVIL'S NIGHT series. The feeling of a new world that has so many opportunities, especially when they come from Penelope, is just he best feeling for any book lover. And knowing the kind of writing you would be diving into from a favorite author who has no hold backs about what kind of kinky, forbidden, and dark romance she is willing to write is such a thrill seeking feeling for an avid romance reader like myself. And for those who are seeking a brand new dark romance to dive into, this is the one because Miss Douglas will never disappoint. Now to briefly talk about the story without giving anything away... Liv & Clay. What can I even say these two level headed young girls, who want nothing more than to feel that passion and emotional connection that they felt from the moment they met each other. One who knows what she wants, and another who is hesitant to get there because of the judgment and criticism she would get for loving someone of the same sex. It's the vulgar way of getting there, and admitting to each other that there is no denying that strong lust and emotional angst they have for each other. It's through the forbidden ways of the smallest touches, to the longing glances, to the harsh words that bring the attraction to each other. When I tell you that they bullied each other, they truly did bully each other. But to Liv, waiting for years for Clay to actually admit that they are meant to be with each other and relieve that sexual tension, is the hardest part of all. Especially when Clay knows the kind of girlfriend and human being Liv would be and is to her; It's like being in her orbit, I can feel the shine, too. I feel bigger with her close... Though we have been getting a lot of intense dark romances from Pen lately, there is no denying that she is a true believer of happily ever afters... even if they have some sort of wicked ending that we all secretly just love. And to crave more of her writing is a mutual side affect one gets after reading any of her books, no matter what trope it may be. Hopefully we do get to see more of the characters in this series, because I am seriously invested in Liv's brothers whom each individual have one hell of a story line to follow.

    TW for mentions of suicide, sexual assault, and loss of a loved one. Gah, where do I start? I always have SUPER HIGH expectations when I start a new Penelope Douglas book. This one definitely felt like she was going back to her roots of Bully and Punk 57. We haven't had one of those in a while, and I devoured this book. Clay and Liv are enemies. They both play lacrosse together, but Clay has made it her mission to make Liv know she is not welcome and that she hates her. Clay is rich and popular TW for mentions of suicide, sexual assault, and loss of a loved one. Gah, where do I start? I always have SUPER HIGH expectations when I start a new Penelope Douglas book. This one definitely felt like she was going back to her roots of Bully and Punk 57. We haven't had one of those in a while, and I devoured this book. Clay and Liv are enemies. They both play lacrosse together, but Clay has made it her mission to make Liv know she is not welcome and that she hates her. Clay is rich and popular while Liv is from the other side of the tracks. Both girls go head to head but they won't be able to fight their attraction for long. This is definitely a bully romance and both girls pull no punches when it comes to hurting one another when they're feeling hurt. That's the usual cycle with bully romances, though, and it's only a matter of time before they work things out. This book was looooong and I don't know if I necessarily think it had to be that long, but I really loved the character development Clay when through. Liv knows who she is and is out to everyone. Clay, on the other hand, denies her attraction to Liv and is determined to show everyone she's straight and that she hates Liv. This becomes hard, though, when Liv and Clay start giving into their attraction because, in public, Clay is still trying to keep her sexuality a secret, especially since she's still confused about what her sexuality even is. What really made this book for me, aside from the romance, was the side characters. I loved all of Liv's brothers and would LLOOOOVVVEEEE books for them! I don't now if that would happen, but there's so much backstory there and I loved how protective her brothers were and how they would always show up for her, no questions asked. Then, near the end, I really enjoyed Clay's storyline with her parents and how that all played out. I wasn't the biggest fan of Clay's friends and I would have liked to see them more genuinely there for her more than just at the end. I also loved how this was also a sports romance! They both play lacrosse and we actually get to see games and practices, which I loved. Liv is also in theater, so we get to see her at play practice and the performance. I loved how fleshed out these two characters were and how they had so much to them. In a lot of high school bully romances, the characters lack depth or even a hobby, so I enjoyed how these two characters had fully lives and hopes for their futures. Overall, this had me in my feels and so nostalgic for Penelope's older books. If you love her NA high school bully romances, you're going to love this. Penelope doesn't hold back on the steam, but she also doesn't hold back on the enemies/hate aspect of the romance.

I'm lowkey obsessed w him. Tryst Six Venom was popping the F/F cherry for many readers, myself included and I couldn't be happier that it was by one of my favorite author. Since I didn't like any of PD latest releases, Tryst Six Venom was a huge step into the right decision. It reminded me a lot of her older works. With the enemies-to-lovers, bully romance & rich girl/poor girl trope TSV gave me some Punk 57 & Fall Away vibes. Not her best book, but worlds better than the last weird incest standalone book that PD wrote. LOL. “But the more I look around at the world, Clay, the more I realize that villains are a lot more complicated than we want them to be. Sometimes, they’re just people who are really afraid.” ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ CHARACTERS ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ ↬ Clay Collins. The little princess. Clay's home life has been hard since her little brother died. Her mother is controlling and want to micro-manage everything, her father is never at home. She's miss little perfect. It took me quite some time to warm up to Clay, because she's mean and pretty unlikeable at the beginning. Clay is not exactly the most likable person, but she's such a complex character that I even when I was frustrated w her, I felt bad for her too, because I knew every demeaning, insulting word she threw at Olivia was her way of coping w her own sexuality. This girl had issues and she had no one to talk besides Olivia. I could even be mad at her for all the homophobic things she said to Olivia, cause the internalised homophobia is accurate from what I gathered... ↬ Olivia Jaeger. The outsider. She's baby and I love her. And everyone who disagree can leave me alone. 🤚 Liv is a queen, just because she knows exactly who she is. She is not afraid to show people who she is and what they think of her and how many people can really say that about themselves, not Clay tho. She has 0 fucks left to give, stayed unbothered for most of the time... I don't have any choice but to stan. ✨ She's basically Misha from Punk 57 , but the female version. What I loved about her character the most is that she didn't back down when Clay was bullying her, but at the same time she was so patient w Clay and was the only person to really understand how Clay was feeling and how Clay was struggling. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ ROMANCE ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ “Imagine what the world would have to come to for me to take fashion advice from a white trash, rug-sucking, swamp rat like you.” Aw, that's sweet. If my soulmate doesn't insult me on a daily basis, I don't want it. <3 No fr, I didn't mind the bullying aspect that much, because Penelope Douglas is like the queen of writing bully romances. If there is one author I trust w that trope it's her, but apart that this book was way too long than necessary, the bullying went on for too long IMO. And then the transition between the bullying and the "I'm in love" stage, felt very unnatural. It went from one stage to the other too quickly and needed more development in between, cause Liv was a simp for Clay from the start. What I like w the bullying here is that both girls give as good as they get. The power balance was more or less equal and that's never the case w M/F bully romances. Another thing I just didn't love about the romance is all the OW/OM drama in between when Clay was making out w Callum and Liv was making out w Megan. Yeah thanks, but thanks no I didn't need to read about those on screen make out sessions. That was just messy. “Just let me go,” I barely whisper. “I can’t. I liked Liv and Clay together and they were pretty adorable & very cute especially in the second half. But the first half of the book was so tedious and had so much drama that I wasn't as invested in their romance by the end as I could have been. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ SIDE-CHARACTERS ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ ↬ Mr. & Mrs. Collins. Why do I name these characters first? The dumbass that I am always get way too invested in the side love story/side characters. Clay's parents have a love story I'd die to get my hands one. Their love story is so fucking messy w the death of one child, neglation of the other child, the cheating, the lying, the second chance, but I ate up every crumb. I was a little sad when I read that they got a divorce, but even happier to see that they tried dating e/o again after four year! What a messy love story, but I loved it. ↬ Macon Jaeger. “You’re going to go to Dartmouth.” He dips his head down close to mine, holding my eyes. “And you’re going to join a club and make some friends, and in a couple of months you’re going to have a life.” “You’re going to leave,” he grits out. “You’re going to leave here and leave any hope of her. You’re going to do the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do, because it’ll save you, Liv. Because you’re Trysta Jaeger’s daughter, and we’re going to do what she would’ve wanted us to do and didn’t have the courage to do herself. We keep biting back. We survive, because sometimes that’s the most violent thing we can do to other people. We stay alive.” Macon carrying the world and all its responsibiliites on his shoulders. Give this man a freaking break!!! Macon sacrificed everything to be there for his siblings. EVERYTHING. I don't think he has his own life anymore, all he does it survive and breathe to keep his siblings and their children alive. Every time Macon appeared on the page, HE STOLE THE FUCKING SHOW. Olivia who? Clay who? All I see is Macon Jaeger. He has so much to say. Just give him a book already. ↬ All the other Jaeger bros I can't remember all their names, but they all need a book too. I mean single dad??? What a serve would that be. But honestly, I loved all of the Jaeger brothers, cause they were so protective of Liv and even though their family is dysfunctional at least they have each other. **** Penelope Douglas cover appreciation– I love the cover for Tryst Six Venom and basically love all of PD standalone covers, because I know what's inside is pretty hot, but when I read them in public no one is going to question what the fuck I'm reading.

    dnf @ 40% This is a case of "It's not the book, it's me." I read Bully by PD back in 2016 and rated it 1 star. Although it was the first bully romance I've read (the only other bully romance I’ve read is Vicious), I realized romance books with the bully trope were not going to be my cup of tea. While I knew this was a bully high school f/f romance, I wanted to give it a chance to see if I would like it more because it's a f/f romance. However, by the time I started, I was already debating whether dnf @ 40% This is a case of "It's not the book, it's me." I read Bully by PD back in 2016 and rated it 1 star.

While I knew this was a bully high school f/f romance, I wanted to give it a chance to see if I would like it more because it's a f/f romance. However, by the time I started, I was already debating whether I was going to finish this or not. It only took 20% for me to realize I was either going to finish this and rate it 1 star or DNF it. Clearly, the latter was a better option. I've mentioned before how I can stand rude love interests as long as there's development, but when it comes to bullying . . . I feel like there's no hope for me because the rudeness is done deliberately and for no reason other than hurting the others. I was going to attempt and read more of this, but I realized the more I read, the more bored and frustrated I got. The whole mentality and thinking of "I hate them but I love them so I'm going to make their life a living hell" isn't my thing. But if that is your thing then I'm sure you'll like this one. Bully romances are not for me, and I don't think it has to do with the author or how they're written because I don't like bullying in general, even if it's fiction. As I said, it's a case of it's not the book, it's me, which is why I'm not finishing this and I'm not rating this. I don't think I'm ever going to read a bully romance again because I know that I'm not going to like it for that reason. I think the only bully romance I will deliberately suffer for is Breaking the Bully by Jessa Kane just to get it over with (mostly because it's short). Other than that, this trope is clearly not for me. I believe in second chances for tropes and authors, but this trope didn't even let me give it the entire chance. Oh well.

    Arini ~ Miss Casually Reading

    CLAY & OLIVIA - WHAT A SAVAGE COUPLE! BUT CAN I PLEASE HAVE ONE OF THE JAEGERS?? (Preferably the oldest one) PD’s shit is my kind of shit. Like, she can shit on paper and I would still read it. (Idk if this is a common expression - but if not, then I’m borrowing it from Val. 🙈) That said, I went into this book tentatively and came out struggling to identify my thoughts and feelings. So, we’re just going to figure them out as we go. Idk how long this will get or if you even care at all, but here go CLAY & OLIVIA - WHAT A SAVAGE COUPLE! BUT CAN I PLEASE HAVE ONE OF THE JAEGERS?? (Preferably the oldest one) PD’s shit is my kind of shit. Like, she can shit on paper and I would still read it. (Idk if this is a common expression - but if not, then I’m borrowing it from Val. 🙈) That said, I went into this book tentatively and came out struggling to identify my thoughts and feelings. So, we’re just going to figure them out as we go. Idk how long this will get or if you even care at all, but here goes. ==> My history with gay romance = NONE... I have never read a queer romance prior to this one (neither MM nor FF). I’ve read many books featuring queer couples acting as side characters. Do you know what I mean? I’ve never been particularly interested (in MM/FF romance) either. I’m not opposed to this practice/culture in real life, but I always thought it was just something I wouldn’t prefer in my reading. Then PD came out with this book. I was sort of convinced this wasn’t my thing. On the other hand, I was also curious if this WAS my thing. And I thought, what better way to start my venture into this category of romance if not by trusting one of my favorite authors to guide me through it? Hence, I said... Fuck it, let’s do this! I didn’t have any expectations seeing as I wasn’t sure what to expect to begin with. To put it simply, I was mostly reading this book just because. If I loved it, then that would be awesome and probably made me more open to seek out other queer romances. If I didn’t love it, that would be fine too. I wasn’t going to feel sad or disappointed. No harm no foul. ✋ Now, we’re here and I didn’t love this book. But I also didn’t know exactly what I feel. Hmm. Help. ==> In which I (kinda) gush about Clay & Liv, but feeling all kinds of confused regarding my stan on FF... I can’t tell if this is PD not coming through; OR, if finishing this book just solidifies I’m not into gay romance. Though, saying that might be too soon seeing as I’ve only tried this ONE book. In any case, this is pretty much like reading MF - except I couldn’t bring myself to feel invested in the romance, and all the sex scenes did was put a puzzled look on my face instead of getting me all hot and bothered. Like, I was busy wondering... How did they dry hump each other if there was no ‘bulge’ to rub and nugde the little nub (??) ?? Heh. WTH. How did they do the ‘scissors’?? Wouldn’t that just hurt their pubic bones?? Uh, okay, you get the point. This is getting uncomfortable. 🙈 Anyway, the MCs (Clay & Liv) clearly have chemistry, and they’re ✦hot✦ bitches. Not only by themselves, but with each other as well. I didn’t condone the behavior obviously, but I approved how the bully trope was executed in this book and how it tied with Clay’s internalized homophobia. She was so mean (especially in the beginning) and a frustrating character to read about, but she was also someone whom you could feel the pain of and show some sympathy to. Wish she’d sorted herself out sooner though. ***Spoiler*** My least fave Clay (bully) moment - when she criticised Liv’s body by writing hurtful (and untrue) words on it with a sharpie. My most fave Clay moment - when she *purposefully* scarred Milo’s face with a knife. 💀💀 Meanwhile, Olivia (Liv) was my favorite of the two. She might be the one getting bullied and ridiculed, but she was far from pathetic. She embraced who she was and didnt give a damn what people thought. Not only did she have overprotective brothers whom I’d very much like to get in bed with, but she was also vicious in her own right. When she wasn’t, her vulnerability cracked my heart open. ***Spoiler*** My fave Liv moments - (1) when she gave Clay an orgasm using a showerhead in the locker room shower 🚿💦; (2) when she managed to escape on her own after being ‘snatched away’ by Callum & Milo; (3) all of her scenes with her brothers - especially when she broke down in tears and Macon scooped her up in his arms. 😭 I think it’s safe to say that I liked Clay & Liv individually just fine. However, I mentioned earlier that I wasn’t hooked with their romance or them as a couple. Tbh, I’m not sure why. I kept asking myself if I’d have liked it more had one of them been a guy... Aside from the bullying and few heart to heart talks, their relationship was filled with jealousy, Clay’s ‘wimpiness’ to out herself, and sex. They simply didn’t give me any flutter. In fact, I was more giddy about all the other heterosexual pairings. Like, what was going on with Krisjen & Trace and the second chance romance between Clay’s parents - even though those were not discussed in details and only mentioned in passing. I was also positively more OBSESSED with the Tryst Six brothers. They reminded me of the Van der Berg men. On another note, I feel like this book had a lot of things going on, yet nothing at all. It was too darn long, and some parts got repetitive. I tried hard to read through everything - an endeavor I only partially succeeded in accomplishing. I skimmed through the second half and completely skipped the sex scenes. If only PD had reserved those wasted tedious scenes on the brothers. *sigh* ==> To sum up... This book is very PD and totally screams ✦ high school ✦ romance. I guess I’m feeling rather indifferent towards it, but there are parts that I did enjoy - all of it mostly in relation to Macon & the brothers. Seriously hoping for them to get their own books! Anyway, Clay & Liv are the baddest bitches of the highest order. They’ve truly found their match in each other. I loved that both had dominant personalities. The bully aspect was masterfully crafted. The angst was emotional, but I just couldnt vibe with the romance. I know it’s strange that I’m praising Clay & Liv, yet seemingly complaining about their relationship. Idk how else to explain it. I think I’m just not fully on board with this being FF. Does that make me a bad person?? 🙈 I think I can conclude that it’s just not my preference (still). In my opinion (and maybe just to give you an idea), “Tryst Six Venom” is better than “Bully” but is not as good as “Punk 57.” I’m proud of PD for trying something new - even though it doesn’t quite pan out for me. But it’s not the book’s fault, it’s merely a matter of my predilection for MF romances. I’m glad for those of you who relish in this being FF, and I hope it fulfills your expectations. :)

TBH I was quite apprehensive of popping my FF romance cherry, but the fact that it's a romance & gender shouldn't play a factor in love and secondly, Pen is a pretty hardass author. She rarely pulls punches or writes for the masses. She writes from her gut and her style is scathing and sharp when needed, yet treated with compassion and understanding. These just sealed the deal and I'm now sat here, having closed the book wondering HOW can I go about my life now after having journeyed through this phenomenal story. It's like this book has given me glasses to see the world around me more clearly. My senses are hyper aware now. This book comes at a crucial time where the outside world turmoil needs to be quieted by mind broadening discussions and honest, sensible dialogues, directed towards closed minds. Hopefully change starters here. This is such a book. I've always seen Pen as an author who has improved and grown with every book. My trust in her writing deepens with every book of hers that I pick up. I will not talk a single word about the book, only about what it meant to me, and the Most Important lesson I learnt today. Life is short.... "This could be it" . There's Two Girls in Marymount High Clay Collins- Homecoming Queen. Prom Queen. Omega Chi sweetheart, and something nice to look at. . She belongs to an affluent, projectedly perfect world where Rich hold the power and facades are flawless at the cost of one's truth and integrity. She's a product of her biased and artificial environment And there's Olivia Jaeger, a girl who has 5 brothers and no parents, living across the tracks from Clay, in the Sanoa Swamp. This book has created quite the polarized opinionated buzz in indielandia. My advice to those opposing it merely on the fact that it's FF romance- Stuff it and read. This book is SO MUCH MORE than sex it's about LOVE and relationships and family and abandonment issues and emotional and physical loss, about fear of acceptance and fear of public humiliation and entitled brats and hardworking siblings...Omg there's SO MUCH TO BE EXPLORED!!! "Sanoa Bay is an unincorporated neighborhood of St. Carmen, but it may as well be the moon. They’re Saints. We’re Swamp. We share a zip code. That’s it." There's also this constant struggle betweenHaves and Have Nots two completely opposing lifestyles on either side of the tracks. The difference might as well be between two worlds. Their trials are polar opposites even when inhabiting the same town, same city, same state. “the more I look around at the world, Clay, the more I realize that villains are a lot more complicated than we want them to be. Sometimes, they’re just people who are really afraid.” An everyday battle to be accepted by the society to just step out of the boundaries of prescribed norms and not be limited to a box that you have to tick. "I’ll be dead someday. Done. Never to speak or love or kiss again. What will I regret? What if I’m alone?" For the first time I felt uneducated and ashamed about some of the things members of LGBTQ face every single moment of their existence. Perceptions and prejudices hurled at them. Their tender souls stripped of their armors to bear the brunt of homophobic barbs persistently, it just brought a steady stream of tears streaming from my soul throughout the story. "I was just angry. Jealous. I want her, I can’t have her, and I’m angry that I can’t have her. So I take it out on her." In the first half of the book I was completely enamored by Olivia. Her bravado, her strength just blew me away. The second half showcased more of Clay's struggle with her mother and Mimi, keeping up with their expectations, trying to suppress her wants and desires to maintain the family legacy. There's too many topics spotlighted through this topical, relevant story. The societal hypocrisy, high school toxic atmosphere filled with bigotry, peer pressure and venomous hate. But one person who was the object of my obsession (I want more of him Pen!!!) - My heart just cried buckets everytime Macon came in the scene. His stoic personality, his "sees all, handles all" character, his sincere love for his siblings and tireless devotion for his family...it just broke me. His uphill battles & sacrifice increased my admiration for him tenfold. I can babble on and on till the gators crawl out, but I'll INSIST..nay DEMAND that all of genuine book lovers Read. This. Book. Pen says Perfect doesn't exist, it never did. Well...this book is damn near perfect I say.. It's important, it's crucial, if we want to have better understandings of the world around us. You ain't a romance reader if you don't accept romance in all its colorful glory!! 5 stars for Heart, Heart, Head Follow me on: Email🌻 Bookbub 🌻 Twitter🌻 Instagram🌻 Blog🌻 Facebook🌻 Amazon 🌻

Despite the fact that I’ve mostly outgrown bully romances, bitchy heroines and high school drama galore, I ate this up like I eat my favorite pizza: enjoying every bite and not leaving a single crumble behind. I’ve realized that the only type of bully romances I like are the ones written by Penelope Douglas. She is a connoisseur of these type of stories, and her mastery was yet again displayed here. There really is nothing better than reading a book you’ve been anticipating for ages, and have your (pretty damn high) expectations met. So excuse me if I gloat and act smug for a bit, heh. Clay and Olivia kept saddling the line between hate and love, obsession and detestation throughout the book and oh my, it was executed just perfectly. Every interaction they had was packed with emotion, every small touch was so freaking intense and they had my full attention from start to finish. Clay was so obsessed with Olivia and that little detail made me feel things that I can't even put into words. I looooved that the bitchy rich princess was the one who couldn't keep her attention away from the bad girl, and not vice versa. Their possessiveness and jealousy of each other was exactly what I wanted from them and exactly as I had envisioned it - if not better. Just look at Clay being all proprietary of her girl. Gahhhh! “Her team spots her. Do you understand?” And then I lower my voice, pressing my forehead into hers hard. “I spot her. If I have to repeat myself again, I will do damage you can’t come back from. She is seventeen, a minor, and…” Mine. I loved how, despite the fact that they 'hated' each other and the whole bully aspect that was quite prevalent, the reader could sense this intense need they had for each other. And that is essentially why I loved this book so freaking much. I really like my crazy-as-fuck Barbie doll with a mouth that pisses me off one minute, and arms that hold me so tightly that I don’t care if I can breathe the next. They would be at each others' throats, they would say some fucked up shit, they would hurt each other, and through it all you could sense a twisted sort of affection and tenderness they felt for each other. Their connection felt so palpable at times, I felt like I could reach inside my kindle and actually touch it. They hated each other, but no, not quite. The only proper words I could find to describe it is just primitive need. Every single scene they had with each other, that need was so easy to feel and spot. And immediately I know that I can’t even fool myself. I’m not in control. She has my heart in her fist. I loved Clay and Olivia as characters. So much. Olivia was the nicer out of the two, but I gravitated towards Clay more. Which is surprising since I love my soft heroines, but Clay's vulnerability, broken past, hilarious come backs, cute self totally won me over. She is just... so adorable. Even when she's angry and mean. Even when she acted like a total brat. She had these scenes where I just wanted to hug her tight and protect her from the world. I love how polar opposites me and her are - yet she was the one I sympathized the most with. “You’re so pretty, Liv,” she breathes out. “You know you’re never getting away from me, right?” The side characters - I know it's probably never going to happen but damn if I'm still not going to think about each of the Jaeger brothers getting their own books. I just adored them, every single one of them. I loved their family dynamic, I loved how protective they were over Olivia and I loveeeed their interactions. Every single one. Macon especially deserves a happy ending and I will probably cry myself to sleep every single night if he doesn't get one. I loved him the most out of all of them. I also really liked Clay's friend Krisjen, she was so cute! Honestly, I couldn't have dreamt of a better version of this book. PD really did Clay and Olivia justice in every single aspect. She fleshed out their story masterfully, and stayed true to their characters which I respect. The drama was so entertaining, and I can't think of a single scene I disliked. I just really, really loved everything about Tryst Six Venom. And I don't think I'm gonna get over this story and these characters anytime soon. I know, in this moment, that I have no intention of looking into any other pair of eyes for the rest of my life.

I had never read an FF prior to Tryst Six Venom. Therefore, when Penelope announced the release of this book I felt quite anxious, left wondering if this trope would pull the same strings and check off the list of things I loved and craved in an MF. I wasn’t completely sure how Penelope would write this story as I went blind into this trope overall. But, having always admired Penelope’s amazing writing, I had good faith in what she had in store for us. And I can confirm without a doubt that that faith has nowhere near shaken since. When I got the message asking if I wanted to receive an ARC I couldn’t have answered fast enough. And from the second I found it on my kindle, I couldn’t read it slow enough even as I tried with all my might. I devoured it much too quickly, losing all track of time. I was able to feel a connection between our two heroines immediately into the book. Through the hatred and the love, their chemistry was wildfire. Having read my fair share of “bully romances”, this one being an FF had an effect on the conduct between the two main characters. As this book is about two girls, there wasn’t an imbalance of gender. These girls would physically fight one another, something I had never read in any other book before this one. Nor Clay or Olivia had the upper hand in the relationship, neither was boxed as the single dominant one; someone to take on the lack of a masculine role. They set each other on equal pedestals. In the beginning, I hated how much I related to Clay. But as she came to terms with her sexuality I felt like I was looking through a mirror of my past, coming face to face with the lost and confused high school version of myself. Olivia is a character I very much admire. Considering the circumstances of her upbringing, her strength was inspiring. And if Clay wasn’t already doing it I would hold Livvy forever. Now, having finished the masterpiece that was this book, I’m left missing them so much, wishing the book was even bigger than it was. I’m going to hold on to the hope of possibly getting more books in this universe as it felt as though Penelope was introducing Olivia’s brothers in a way that opened up the path for them to potentially have their own books as well. This world that Penelope created means so much to me now and I could only pray for a return ticket. I will now spend my time grieving the end and editing Clay and Olivia as best I can to capture the perfection they were. I wholeheartedly recommend this book, even to those who, like me, have never read an FF. Penelope has a way of grasping every fibre of your body and placing you in the character’s shoes, and you will not regret picking up this book. thank you so much, Penelope Douglas for the ARC ♥️ ☆☆☆☆☆ find me here instagram youtube

It's a bully romance set in high school, and normally I don't gravitate towards these kinds of reads but I trust Penelope Douglas and I trust her process. TSV ended up being a gripping, entertaining, emotional read – I highly recommend it especially if you love Punk 57 or Bully! Good girl Clay comes from a wealthy family. Bad girl Olivia comes from the wrong side of the tracks. They hate each other, they're on the same lacrosse team, and Clay has made Liv's life hell their entire time in high school. Unfortunately, Liv can't retaliate since the rich kids at their school don't experience any kind of repercussions. So she keeps to herself and works hard to survive long enough to graduate and go to an Ivy League out of the state. The relationship between Liv and Clay is toxic. At least at first. It's full of turmoil and angst and anger and hurt. There's so much to unpack between them but underneath it all is also an unwanted attraction. Liv is out and Clay is confused and scared about her sexuality. All she knows is that she just wants Liv. It's a roller coaster of emotions when you read TSV. My heart HURT for these two, not just regarding their budding love and romance but also for both of their wrecked homes. Clay's brother passed away years ago, leaving her parents a mess. Liv and her brothers have lived day by day making ends meet ever since their parents died. I loved the fact that Penelope Douglas was able to make me so invested in the secondary characters! I fell in love with Liv's brothers (who I wouldn't mind books for. Especially Macon!!!) and I found myself rooting for Clay's parents to get back together. It was a fantastic cast of well-rounded, developed characters. The main reason why I'm not rating this higher is that I did struggle to get into the story in the beginning. The hate was so real and brutal, and I had no idea how Clay and Liv would be able to move past all the hurt and heartache. But I always tell myself to trust in PD and before I knew it, I was hooked. I really enjoyed Clay and Liv and their romance. Their chemistry is insane and I'm always in awe of how PD can unravel her characters and build them back into something even better. If you love your NA romances on the more intense and angsty side, you can't go wrong with this. ***** My weekend is booked 🥰🥰🥰 I’m forever thankful to PD for sending me her ARCs! ***** I already love this book from the teasers PD posted on fb and the end of nightfall. I cannot WAIT to read this f/f romance!!!

    Penelope Douglas popped a lot of cherries with this one, and trust me when I say, we couldn't have been in more capable hands!  I call her my unicorn for a reason. Her writing is second to none!  Everything I love about bully romance is present and accounted for in this one. The push and pull, unbearable tension, intense passion, angst, cruelty, all-consuming love, and combustible sex, this author delivers it all! I guess it's fitting that the woman who helped introduce me to mf bully romance al Penelope Douglas popped a lot of cherries with this one, and trust me when I say, we couldn't have been in more capable hands!  I call her my unicorn for a reason. Her writing is second to none!  Everything I love about bully romance is present and accounted for in this one. The push and pull, unbearable tension, intense passion, angst, cruelty, all-consuming love, and combustible sex, this author delivers it all! I guess it's fitting that the woman who helped introduce me to mf bully romance also introduce me to the ff variety, and just like the first time time around, she blew my expectations out of the water!  Liv and Clay's story is sexy, complicated, gut-wrenching, heartwarming, and absolutely beautiful. I was captivated and addicted from the very first page. A myriad of emotions hit me in the chest over and over as I was reading, and it didn't stop until the very end!  I have a full out girl crush on Liv. She's hot, strong, smart, determined, caring, talented as hell, and gives zero fucks what anybody thinks. I understand why Clay is obsessed with her! Who wouldn't be?  Liv is everything Clay wishes she could be. She knows what she wants out of life, and she goes after it. She's confident in her sexuality, unbothered by other people's judgements and opinions, and doesn't hide who she is for anyone. Simply put, Liv is free.  Clay feels stifled by society, her friends, and her family's expectations. She's afraid to let the world see who she truly is or even admit it to herself. Her home life is falling apart, and while Liv is no stranger to heartache when it comes to family, her brothers are her ride or dies. They always have her back and love her exactly the way she is. She never has to worry about disappointing them just by being herself. Clay isn't sure she has that kind of unconditional love from anyone.  Clay may be an acquired taste for many, but I felt for her right away. When it comes to heroes, I always love the jealous, possessive assholes, and I guess, the same goes for heroines. Clay is especially vicious in the beginning, but I understood the pain and confusion behind her cruelty and bullying. She wants Liv in anyway she can have her, and if that's to get the shit beat out of her for being a bitch, so be it.  She's also not without any good qualities. The work she does at the morgue is a perfect example of how she's more than meets the eye. Underneath her popular, privileged, tough girl exterior, she is compassionate and kind. Anyone that can do what she does is a special brand of human, and it bumped up my opinion of her exponentially.  In most romance novels, the setting is just where the story takes place. In a Penelope Douglas novel, it feels like a whole damn character. I love the Saints versus Swamps dynamic in the town, the alligators, the light house, the oyster eating, and the scavenger hunts on Night Tide. I need more of it!! So much more!  I wish so badly that this was a series, because there's clearly more to be told about Liv's brothers. Those scene stealing characters shoved their way into my heart from the second they showed up on the page, and I want each and every single one of their stories. I LOVE Macon, Army, Dallas, Iron, and Trace, and I'll be crossing my fingers, toes, and eyeballs that the author is inspired to give us more of them! Tryst Six Venom is everything I hoped it would be and a whole lot more. I've tried to put into words all that this book accomplishes, the perspectives it shares, the lessons it teaches, and what it says about the human experience, but I simply cannot do it justice with just a handful of sentences. You need to experience it for yourself.  In other words, READ THIS BOOK. You won't regret it!  NA bully romance fans, this one's for you!

Not once did I feel uncomfortable, and the characters are really relatable, a slow burn which got its hooks into me. I loved the way these two clashed in such a feisty, toxic manner but drifted over the line into something so beautiful and uninhibited. Liv & Clay took bullying to a whole new level, it was turbulent and soul destroying with its delivery. Their too and fro, their barbed words, their wayward touches, to their stolen glances, these two were stubborn to a fault, their angsty unwanted attraction had me glued to my ipad throughout, I loved this world this author pulled me into, and I'm left hoping that we get to see more.

She just shrugs. “I mean, it’s not like (3 - 3.5) ’I lived for her.

She just shrugs. “I mean, it’s not like this is a relationship, right?” Well… I open my mouth but nothing comes out. I guess not. I hadn’t thought that far ahead. Just that she’s the only option for me. She’s the only thing I want in the world. yet i enjoyed it anyway. though i hated Clay for a while, i liked watching her character grew (still needed more groveling tbh but whatever). i liked her & Liv together. she can be a nasty fuck but there’s no denying the fact that she’s obsessed w/ Liv ”Sometimes my feelings for you are good and sometimes they’re bad,” she tells me, “but they’re always strong, Liv. Like no one else.” i enjoyed their dynamic for what they are, and damn if it wasn’t hot. loved Liv : ”Virginity is a concept invented by people to make women feel worthless for having sex.” I raise my eyebrows matter-of-factly. “You want to worry about protecting something. Protect your credit score. That’ll come in a lot handier someday.” now, if i were to use a sentence to describe Clay to Liv (i still couldn’t get over the stupid petty childish shit she’s done, but i liked her hate to love relationship w/ Macon). anyway back to the topic : ’Tears fills my eyes. She’s such a cunt, but then she says things like that and I just want to give her everything she wants. I want her to know that I wish to God this didn’t feel so good and that she didn’t feel so good.’ now lemme give u glimpses of these two : 1. “I couldn’t stop myself anymore.” “Why?” She leans up and takes my face in one hand, nearly grazing my lips with hers. “Because sometimes two wrongs make a right, Clay.” She breathes hard. “Because venom works slowly but surely and I was so tired of not fighting for my life. And because one of the ingredients in anti-venom is venom, and sometimes you need poison to counteract the poison.” 2. But Clay dives in, pressing her body flush with mine as she lays a hand on my cheek. “Stop crying,” she whispers, pressing her forehead to mine. “Please stop.” I go to grab hold of her, slip my hand around her waist, but I hold back. I already told her too much. But the tears keep coming, no matter how I try to hold my breath to stifle the crying. “All right, I’m gonna shave her head,” she says. “Where can I find her?” I break into a laugh through the sobs, wiping my eyes. But when I look at her, she’s lifted her head off the pillow, and while I can’t make out her whole expression, she’s not joking. “Seriously,” she says, pushing me onto my back and climbing on top of me. “You’re under my protection now and I get shit done. Want her fired? Arrested? Her car repossessed? Porta-potty shit dumped on her lawn, maybe?” she goes on. “I know a guy.” 3. “So, what did you want to talk about?” I ask. “Your car’s extended warranty.” I bury my face in her neck, unable to not laugh. “Brat.” “Beautiful,” she calls me, instead. “Trouble,” I counter. “My pearl.” “Hellion,” I bite out in her ear. She turns her head, whispering, “Sunshine.” “Pain in my ass.” I smile and kiss her. I kiss her for a long time, the wind in our hair as the last light leaves us. “Do you love me?” I ask against her lips. She meets my eyes. “So much, I’ll hurt if you don’t marry me.” And before I know what’s happening, she’s slipping something on my ring finger, her gaze never leaving mine. ᴄᴏɴᴄʟᴜsɪᴏɴ this book was too long but i still wanted more from them. i needed more of the ‘falling in love’ part. if only we could just get a little less of their push and pull bullying, banish the whole callum / clay’s parents drama / other repetitive boring other thing, in exchange of muchmore meaningful Clivia's moments, and grovel from Clay, i’d’ve enjoyed it more. (Liv didn’t make her work for it y’know? Clay was an asshole to her and when she decided she wanted her, Liv just accepted her w/ open arms. and that’s another thing i didn’t like)…. but at least it was hot? (like all PD’s books are lol. she always makes up for the lack of ‘falling in love’ part w/ great smut) at times i felt similar vibes w/ Punk 57. well, don’t take my word for this if you love that book. cuz that one doesn’t have any bullying, i know. but just the high school, some enemies to lover, and mean girl vibe). not my fav PD book, but all in all this was a pleasant read. ***** im trusting PD to pop my f/f cherry!! 🥰

Sometimes, they’re just people who are really afraid. ❞ — this quote stood out to me because, once you finish the book and take a step back to reminisce about what you just read, i honestly believe it could be summed up in this one quote what the characters went through. this was my first sapphic romance and one of my most anticipated releases of this year. in conclusion? PD never disappoints. her writing style always leaves me in awe whenever i read one of her books, the way she’s able to bring out emotions within beautiful moments. just- how?? Clay Collins (h): ↬ i had a love/hate relationship with Clay but, rather than hate, i guess it was more of love/frustration. it’s not really her in denial that frustrated me (because it’s understandable to be afraid), but it was the hurtful words she said to Liv in the first half. i know it was a defense mechanism thing, but the words she blurted out cut deep that i felt the pain and it wasn’t even directed towards me. despite that, i loved her growth! i think she had my favorite character arc in the book. if you compare how she was in the beginning vs end to the scene when she defended Liv from Callum and Milo, wowow it was perfect honestly. Olivia ‘Liv’ Jaeger (h): ↬ it’s hard to compare Clay and Liv because, in the beginning of the story, both were at different paths in their lives. while Clay was still closed off, Liv had already been out and accepted who she was and there’s no wrong or right side because, in reality, you should move at the pace you’re comfortable in, but the reason Liv is my favorite character of the two is because i loved her strength and the way she was evenly matched with Clay. although Clay said those hurtful things, she never let it get to her and managed to fight back twice as hard. there was also a scene where i thought “man, she’s a crazy bitch” but in the best way possible, because i admired her during the part when Callum kidnapped her and the way she kept taunting him and Milo, even tho they could obviously just kill her on the spot, had me in awe. i could never be that brave- the romance: ↬ if y’all know me, you know i’m weak for enemies to lovers and this book was the exact definition of that and i craved every moment of it. i binged this in one sitting because each page left me wanting more to see how ClayOlivia’s romance would develop. it was worth staying up until 6am just to finish this, lemme tell you that. <3 side characters: ↬ Macon. LISTEN, i love and adore all of Liv’s siblings but, if i had to choose, i think Macon deserves the most happiness atm. he’s that sibling who would give you tough love and not really show affection, but his love for you is obvious and he would burn the world just to keep you safe. if he’s that kind of sibling, imagine how he would be for the love of his life. chefs kiss. 🥺🥺 also, he sacrificed everything for his siblings, like c’mon. he deserves a chance at happiness too PLS. ↬ Dallas / Callum. okayy, before you come at me, hear me out. i hated Callum with a passion. some part of me was like “ooh, an asshole. redemption arc?” but, as i kept reading, i lost hope because his character just kept getting worse every time he appeared BUT that one revelation about him and Dallas was enough for me to take a step back and see a different perspective, especially when Liv told Clay about villains being more complicated than what they seem on the outside because, sometimes, they’re just afraid (see quote in the beginning for reference) and i think it’s possible there are layers to Callum we have yet to see that could be a good redemption story for him? the reason i’m putting Dallas here is because i feel like there’s a potential story to explore with this pairing because of their shared history and the angst would be everything; not to mention, Dallas is another Jaeger brother i feel like is surrounded with mystery and i’d love to know more of! ↬ Trace / Krisjen. they seemed to have a friends with benefits situation and i wouldn’t mind if she becomes his love interest since i did like her character! ↬ Army. single dad trope?? YES PLS. ↬ Iron. if i remember correctly, it was Iron and Dallas who liked having threesomes/sharing with each other so it would be interesting to see them branch out from that and become possessive of the person they end up loving in the future. :”) Trace nods. "You shouldn’t tell them you’re bisexual, Clay," he says. "You’re not." Huh? "I mean, some people are," he assures. "But I’ve also learned that some people will simply say they’re bisexual rather than gay, because they feel it’s easier on their families." my (only) complaint: ↬ idk, maybe it’s just the way it was worded cause i’m sure Trace meant well, but this scene felt off. even if Clay’s situation was what Trace had implied, i still feel like it wasn’t his place to say that. i mean- the fact that he’s telling her she’s not bisexual was strange because he’s not Clay?? only she knows her true feelings soo. overall thoughts: i absolutely loved this book! if you liked PD’s Fall Away series, i think you’ll definitely love this one. it has a similar writing/tone as her older books and those are some of my all time favorites of hers. i’m really hoping to see more stories from the side characters in future books!! <3 ⊱ ────── ஓ๑♡๑ஓ ────── ⊰ update: march 2021 okayy but the teasers PD has released for this book sounds so good, i- 😭😭

Desperately awaiting the release. So when it landed on my kindle, I must have jumped on it quicker than you can say "mine". True story. When you’re in the eye of the storm, the only way out is through. A prestigious high school for the rich and entitled. A girl from the wrong side of the tracks. And the spoiled girl who seems to have everything she wants, except the one thing that alludes her. I was instantly hooked on the story. Clay is a bully that you can't help but love. She's tortured, angry, and no matter how much venom she spits, you see the pain it's rooted in. She's the popular girl in the school. The one who seems to have everything at her fingertips. The captain of the lacrosse team and the girl all guys want and all girls want to be. Olivia "Liv" Jaeggar is her antithesis. She's the black sheep of the school and the brunt of everyone's jokes. She doesn't hide herself and makes no apologies. The only girl amongst her 5 brothers, she's a bit of a bad girl with an aura of I don't give a [email protected] I loved her. She's venomous in her own right. She takes everything Clay has to give and dishes it right back. But where Clay hasn't quite figured out who she is, Liv knows it and wears it openly. I loved the fact that Pen also focused on some very real pieces of bullying and I appreciated this story so much more for it. As for the romance, I lived for it. It's a slow burn, full of angst and emotion. It had so much depth that I found myself happily drowning in it. And the epilogue? *chefs kiss* Perfection. But even though I loved this book, I'm completely unsatisfied too. Why? Because I need more. I need a book for each and every single one of Liv's bothers. Particularly Macon and Dallas. Like I would DIE for their book. I need it BAD. Aside from that, I'm in book heaven. This book hit every single spot. I loved every page of it.

I absolutely had to read that shit immediately and yeeted Hideaway right outta my hands This is my first ff romance and I never knew how much I needed to read two hardcore bitches falling in love til rn 💘 I wish someone woulda told me earlier. Technically, Liv is not a bitch, but when Clay's a bitch to her, yeah she'll square up. This was a bully romance because if Clay had left Liv alone Liv never woulda been mean, she's someone who stays in her own lane, but bc Clay targeted Liv and gave her no choice but to engage a lot of time this felt like enemies to lovers. Cause Liv was never just gonna roll over and take Clay's shit. She would give it back just as hard and lucky for me, I seriously loved Liv as a character, she's the type of heroine I consider myself lucky to stumble across in the romance genre, but tbh Clay carried this book for me. Her POV was just.... insane. We let our asshole antiheroes be so freakin dynamic it was just refreshing to see that in a antiheroine. She was god awful a lot of the time but there was so much going on under the surface. Like she was just so freakin obsessed with Liv, so possessive and twisted up and it came out in the worst ways I just loved her from the jump. ğŸ’Žmy top clay moments:ğŸ’Ž #1 “If you ever speak to me this way again, I will knock your teeth out.” I stare down into her eyes, a new energy filling me that kind of scares me, but I won’t fucking stop. Nothing comes between Liv and me. “Do you understand?” Fear fills her blue eyes, and I squeeze harder as she tries to shift out of my grasp. “Do you understand?” I bellow. #2 "Baby..." she bites out, interrupting me. "If I think you're not mine, I might make a scene. Be very careful what you say next." #3 My claws dig into her skin and her fingers are ripping her hair out of my scalp as we go at each other—hitting, tearing, squeezing, and raging. I want to cry, I'm so happy. This is all I want. Everything I want. I don't want to ever do anything else. Cheering fills my ears, she rolls on top of me, and I don't see anything but her. I only feel her. Let me make it known that quote #3 is NOT from a sex scene btw. They were straight up beating the shit out of each other on the floor of a cafeteria. And Clay is bursting with more joy than she'd shown the entire book at that point bc it's OLIVIA beating the shit outta her and she's just happy she has her attention. THAT is how you do enemies to lovers ppl!! (well, if your idea of romance is the same as mine 😇) I liked the push and pull between them because they both had power in different areas. While Clay was the bully and had more money and social clout, Olivia had more experience, was more secure of her sexuality and also had the upper hand dealing with her emotions, all areas Clay struggled in. Liv was also the more unbothered one, it was just naturally harder to get under her skin which I loved and honestly wish I saw more of in bully romances. I usually hate bully roms where the bully gets to be flippant and superior while the 'victim' pines for them. Liv was never rly scared of Clay when she bullied her, she kind of just felt pity that someone would feel the need to act out like that. And I liked that Clay was the more obsessed one bc it evened out her outward behavior by being more inwardly vulnerable. In the end, I loved Liv's patience and Clay's turmoil. 🖤 I hate Olivia Jaeger. I fucking hate her, and I'd happily never love anything if I could hate her my whole life. So even tho I liked the characters and mainly only have positive things to say about this book, for some reason I can't get myself to rate it higher than 3 stars 🤔 My enjoyment level stayed fairly flat throughout this book, I guess I just never felt that invested in the story. And this thing was longggg. Like I felt like I was reading this for about 800 years, by 30% I felt like I'd read a full length book. So all in all, loved the characters, but the story, just aight.

THE JAEGAR BROTHERS NEED THEIR OWN SPIN OFFS. I swear to God 😫 Macon and Dallas and Iron and Army and Trace!! I feel like it'll be obvious that my favorite brother is Macon. His perseverance, his dedication to his family, his love despite not being able to verbally express it, but nonetheless showing it in other ways. There's always something about a character sacrificing their entire life to care for their family that gets to me. And I don't know if it's the brotherhood dynamic or the fact that it's just the siblings left to fend for themselves and he's in charge, but Macon didn't start off as my favorite character and the way he develops and cares for his family NO MATTER WHAT really got to me so I need a book for him RIGHT NOW ✋🏼🥺 But obviously this book isn't about Macon. IT'S ABOUT MY BBY LIV AND CLAY. Listen... I'm team Liv all the way because Clay???? SO SO SO MEAN. So mean that my feelings were getting massively hurt and I started crying for Liv during one part of the book (and not even during the sharpie scene, it was way later). If Clay bullied me, I could not tolerate it the way Liv has. I read bully romances all the time, but something about this hurt extra deep 😂 Does Clay redeem herself? Sure. But I'm not as easily forgiving as Liv is to her because she crushed my feelings and I'm not even the main character 😭 But do I still love her? Love them both? YES YES 100% YES. Clay and Liv are really hot and cold. They dance on that thin line between love and hate and there's a lot of pain between the two of them on top of the pain they harbor individually. But I still rooted for them the whole way. I was still heavily engrossed in the book. Despite being over 500 pages, this read really fast to me. I finished it in two nights' worth of reading. Tons of spice easily woven into their complicated, rollercoaster relationship. The brothers play a large enough role for Liv and for their small town and where all of the rich kids are concerned. The last quarter of this book... shit got real and I was so shook because I didn't expect it to go that direction. SO I WOULD DEFINITELY ADVISE ON LOOKING UP TRIGGER WARNINGS PRIOR TO READING. Let me just say... Liv being the youngest of the siblings and Macon being the oldest... there's this one scene between the two of them that ATE ME ALIVE!!!! ❤️ You might start reading it and thinking that their relationship is too rocky, but man oh man the siblings 🥺

    Meredith is a hot mess

    “Don’t say that,” I whisper. “Why?” “Because I can’t…” I don’t know how to explain. “I can’t… I can’t…” I don’t want you. I can’t want you. It’s just… So I say the only thing that I do know for sure. “I can’t leave you alone” "I can’t leave you alone,” she whispers. My fingers hum. Don’t leave me alone. I’m an idiot. “Sometimes my feelings for you are good and sometimes they’re bad,” she tells me, “but they’re always strong, Liv. Like no one else.” I hold her tighter, burying my nose in he “Don’t say that,” I whisper. “Why?” “Because I can’t…” I don’t know how to explain. “I can’t… I can’t…” I don’t want you. I can’t want you. It’s just… So I say the only thing that I do know for sure. “I can’t leave you alone” "I can’t leave you alone,” she whispers. My fingers hum. Don’t leave me alone. I’m an idiot. “Sometimes my feelings for you are good and sometimes they’re bad,” she tells me, “but they’re always strong, Liv. Like no one else.” I hold her tighter, burying my nose in her hair and hating her for so much, but most of all, hating her for denying us this for so long. “I know I’m not your first,” she says. “But you’re mine. I want to be sacred to you.” Tears fill my eyes. She’s such a cunt, but then she says things like that and I just want to give her everything she wants. I want her to know that I wish to God this didn’t feel so good and that she didn’t feel so good. I wanted sapphic teenage angst, and this book was dripping with sapphic teenage angst. Tryst Six Venom delivered and so much more. This one is special. I love it. I don't even know where to begin with a review. I just want to quote the entire book. This isn't just my favorite ff new adult book, but my favorite new adult book I've read to date. I can only speak from my experience, which obv isn't going to be everyone's - but this felt v. authentic. Most importantly it didn't take itself too seriously. There's loads of humour in this book that balances out the teenage immaturity and darkness. There's a surprising amount of layers and depth. Some new adult authors try to write these new adult books and make them deep with references to classics and it ends up feeling either inauthentic for the age group or just induces eye-rolling because the book starts trying to take itself too seriously. The references to V for Vendetta? The commentary on Mercutio from Romeo and Juliet? The Sanoa Bay/St. Carmen divide being reminiscent of The Outsiders? Ugh. Beyond perfect. Penelope Douglas was inspired while writing this story. If you like this book I suggest reading The Housemistress by Keira Michelle Telford. It's an academy, taboo, age-gap ff romance. No bullying. It has a sort of similar vibe to this though. Just more taboo with the age-gap vs. the enemies to lovers element that's in this book For FF Romance readers who might be tempted to read this since this is pretty popular right now - heed the warnings. I'm not sure I've come across a ff bully romance, where one of the love interests that ends up with the girl is the one doing the bullying. I'm going to explain why the bullying worked for me. There's a nuance to pulling off a bully romance, and Penelope Douglas nailed it here. It won't be for everyone. While Olivia is the most likable, Clay stole the show for me. I respect that Pen didn't hold back with Clay, because she was taking a risk writing Clay's character. At times I wanted to throttle Clay's neck, but by the end she won me over. I'm scared for anyone who might ever think they can mess with Olivia. They'll get cut. Clay is a girl who will do anything to get Olivia's attention, even if it's bad. Once she has Olivia? She will do anything to keep her. First the most important point: The ff smut was hot. It gets an A+ from me. The sexual tension between these two (and hate to love provides the best sexual tension imo) leads to a torrid, angsty relationship. Just - this is the kind of ff enemies to lovers romance I've been craving for forever. Really, the erotica was written so well. That black panty scene? I found it as amusingly erotic as Joe describing Beck masturbating on that green pillow in YOU. And what makes this scene kind of manic (Yep, I think Clay is at times just as obsessed/manic as Joe from YOU) is that it happens after Clay treats Liv horribly. Clay has it bad. If anyone has read Lords of Pain, Clay has it as bad as Killian. Complete, total obsession but they can't even admit they like the other person. It leads to self sabotage and nearly drives the other person completely away. (view spoiler)[ I can’t see me anymore. I’m small. I don’t know who I am. I’m always mad. Bitter. Afraid. That’s all I am anymore. I turn, pressing my forehead into the door and sob. Why did I do that to her? What does she matter anyway? My knees still bent, I hold up the underwear with both hands, my head going places I don’t understand. Does she sleep in them? Does she sleep in only these? How many people have seen her in them? Has Megan Martelle? I grind the fabric between my fingers, the tornado inside my body raging again like it did when the shame and heartache of having her naked before me raged in the theater. She’ll hate me forever now. That’s what I want, right? I’d gone too far. I had to. I lie back in the tub, the spray showering down on me. Leaning my head on my hand, I fist the underwear again and again, my gaze falling into a void in my head where I only see her. In here with me. Quiet with me. Close with me. Her head between my thighs. I moan, my head falling back as I rub my pussy and roll my clit under my fingers through her panties. "Fuck," I groan the friction of her lacy fabric a little scratchy, but it feels so good. (hide spoiler)] Though I just compared Clay to Joe from YOU and Killian from LORDS OF PAIN. No, she's really just obsessed with Olivia, confused about her own sexuality, and intensely jealous. My bff in high school had no idea she was queer. She dated a guy, but never really did anything with him. Instead of recognizing she was attracted to girls in high school, she became intensely jealous and mean to them. College was good for her. She just needed to get laid by a girl, a lot. After she finally figured it out she became chill, way more relaxed. All of this is basically Clay. Her characterization felt very real to me, and wonderfully flawed. Not everyone growing up knows their own sexuality, sometimes it's complicated and messy. And sometimes people are mean to the ones they love, because they want to see they have the ability to affect them, even if it's in a negative way. The Bullying One reason I think Penelope Douglas was taking a risk writing this book was that suicide rates amongst LGBTQ+ teens are high because of bullying. This isn't ignored in the book. There is a mention of a fellow student who was queer and took her life. Clay did not participate in bullying of that girl, and that character did not even know Olivia. It did provide a way for the author to broach this serious topic, and it assured me the author was aware of this and would not be crossing that line. When Clay is mean to Olivia and bullies her? It never crosses into dark , serious bullying territory where Olivia considers something drastic like taking her life. No. Clay is mean to Olivia because she's obsessed with her; this is all made very clear by the author. Which I've seen irl. Sometimes people are mean to those they're crushing on. The worst things Clay does to Olivia is (serious spoilers): (view spoiler)[Pressure her to take off her clothes, draws on her with a sharpie pointing out body parts she supposedly doesn't like (it's very clear she's actually into Liv's body), and she posts a video of Liv hooking up with another girl in a car. (hide spoiler)] That's the worst of it. Olivia stands up for herself and fights back each time. Beyond that there's name calling, snide remarks, insults, a few physical fights. What makes this tolerable is that it's made crystal clear by Clay's POV that she's obsessed with Olivia and wants her. Clay feels she can't be open about wanting Olivia, so she'll make Olivia feel her one way or another, even if it's bad. She'd rather Olivia hate her than feel nothing at all. What makes this even more tolerable is that Olivia gets it. She's confident in herself, she knows she's leaving for Dartmouth in a few months, plus she has 5 brothers who are willing to kick anyone's ass for her. Olivia is well aware anytime Clay comes for her, it's because Clay is acting out of her own pain. Yes, she still feels hurt, but she has a tough as nails core and is able to handle everything thrown at her. She dishes it back out to Clay. This is also juxtaposed beautifully with her own vulnerability that's expressed by the author. At Clay's core she's just as vulnerable as Olivia, and it takes awhile for Olivia to recognize it, even though she kind of knew it all along. “Why were you so patient with me?” she whispers. “So tolerant? I didn’t deserve it.” I lean in, her silky hair brushing the backs of my hands. “Happy people don’t fixate on things they hate,” I explain. “They move on. I knew it was coming from somewhere, Clay.” I glide my hands down her body and circle her waist as we hold each other, and I stare into her eyes. “It doesn’t matter how much money we have or don’t have or how stable our home is. Anyone can have problems.” I loved the length of this book. I loved the progression from enemies to lovers. I loved the angst. Overall I was very impressed with the execution of everything. I felt there was a slight rush to the HEA and a glossing over their college experiences (I would have loved to have read more about Clay's major, for instance). But it's cool. None of these were big enough detractors for me to lower my rating from 5 stars to 4. The HEA made me happy. “Handful,” I grit out over her mouth right before I kiss her madly. “Hellion. Pain in my ass. Trouble.” “You’re never going to get rid of me, you keep talking sweet like that.” And I dive in, biting her neck and making her squeal Fav Quotes: (view spoiler)[ What would Olivia Jaeger say if she saw me now? Maybe it would be the one time she couldn’t say anything. Sometimes I feel like I want her to know me. Sometimes I don’t want her to know anything but me. And other times, I’m glad she doesn’t have a clue. She may be my team captain, but the bitch has never had my back. “Nope. Come here.” He flicks his cigarette, the butt still burning as it lays in the school drive. “This could be it.” He holds out his arm, a warm, cocky smile on his mouth. I sigh, half-rolling my eyes before I come back in and embrace him. This could be it. The Jaeger family creed. The Tryst Six warning, however you want to look at it. Our parents’ passing came at so great a shock that we make it a point to remind ourselves not to fight with each other now. Not to waste time. Not to leave anything unsaid. This could be it. The last time we see each other. He grins, sliding his hands in his pockets. “I’m white, rich, and male. I’ll succeed no matter what.” “You’re male,” I say. “You’ll succeed no matter what.” Now, he orders. Let me see your stomach. But it’s not his voice. I drop my head, breathing hard. It’s not his voice I hear at all. My clit throbs, my nipples harden to pebbles, and I rub my thighs together, aching. “Goddammit,” I murmur. A body smaller and softer than Callum’s and lips I can feel between my teeth, because sometimes I want to bite her until she bleeds. God, she pisses me off. “Come on, it’s just like being with a man, Clay,” I mock, unable to hide my enjoyment as I lower my voice to a whisper. “You just open your legs.” I let my gaze fall to her lips, the wheels in my head starting to turn. She’s making no move to leave. I’m not holding her down. “You just open your legs,” I say again. We lie in the field, in full view of anyone who decides to come by, but she doesn’t seem worried about that. An invisible cord pulls at my hips, urging me to close the distance between us, but I won’t. Even if the world falls off its axis and turns upside down, I’ll never want her. I stick the pencil through a slit in the vent of Liv’s locker, the yellow paint on the wood scraping off as I shove it through. Hanging from the inside, the little bouquet dangles down the outside of her locker, a few of the pretty white petals floating to the ground. She probably doesn’t like flowers. She’ll probably think it’s a prank and rip them off and throw them away, but maybe she’ll think they’re nice, whoever they’re from. Something for her birthday, because she didn’t get flowers or cards or candygrams like the rest of us on Valentine’s Day, and I’d hated seeing that. I walk away, looking back at the bouquet, a flutter in my chest. Everyone likes flowers. Even girls in motorcycle jackets. (hide spoiler)]

The theme developed by the relationships, characters, and plot throughout the story was the game changer. This is a bully romance, but weirdly, I found both girls at times to be aggressive with one another. Clay is the instigator for most of the book and Olivia was reacting but she didn’t take anything lying down. She chose to react or not but when she did, SHE DID. There is no sugar coating that Clay, at times, is vile, but she is so broken, hiding herself, playing a part, never dealing with loss. The one thing she wants, she tells herself she can’t have. Does it excuse her behavior, no, but when she finally allows herself to be who she is, I lived for how she loved Liv and how she was possessive of her. She might have started off as a bully, but she evolved into so much more. Liv was a favorite of mine. She has so much strength - for herself, her family, and her part of town. She fought in her own way when she didn’t want to fight verbally or physically. She never backed down. She has walls up to protect herself and knows her worth and when to walk. She was really understanding with Clay as she grappled with her sexuality, and I loved seeing her more dominant side once these two got together. These two together were magic. Pure magic. Penelope Douglas wrote a couple who are consuming. I wanted to slow down my reading because I didn’t want it to end. I didn’t want to let them go. I wanted to soak in their all-consuming love. I wanted to experience all their firsts and their fun. I could have passed on the heartache, but what’s a book without conflict. The plot as well had many layers, and I really felt like they all tied in well together with the theme she has running through the novel. Tryst Six Venom really centered around the idea that you can’t change who you are, you can’t live a fake life fitting into other people’s ideas of who you should be. You can’t sell bits of yourself putting others happiness in front of your own. We have one life and we should feel alive every single moment that we have it, and we should fill it with people who bring joy and life out of us. Most of the all, the rest of the world can bite it when it comes to their expectations, be you, be alive, live and love whoever you want. This will be one of my favorite books of the year because I love this couple, as individuals but even more as a couple. I lived for their stolen moments, the fun they had with each other, but most importantly for how they healed each other and loved each other through it all. ***triggers - bully romance

    For a long time I’ve been searching for a good FF book but I never found anything that really got me that curious or excited so I just stop looking for it at all. And then Pen announced she was going to write this book and I couldn’t be more happy and ready for it. Clay is a mean girl so it gets kind of hard to root for her because of her attitudes but at the same time it’s really easy to connect with her because you can see how human she is with all her flaws and fears.

Olivia was everything to me, I just loved her personality, her strength and how she wasn’t afraid to fight for what she wanted. These two were a freaking roller coaster of emotions, really! They had all the angst, all the heartbreaking but also all the love. And they were so hot doing it, god... I really loved to read all about their story and the development of their relationship and even themselves. They couldn’t be more different but they were simple right for each other. This was literally one of my most anticipated reads ever and it didn’t disappoint. I was so addicted that I just wanted to keep reading but at the same time I didn’t want it to end. Pen just proved once again that her writing and stories are always amazingly well done and there’s always a different twist that makes me hooked to it. And this whole world was soooo good so I’m really excited to see what the future holds because there’s some really good plots and some crazy good characters here that I can’t wait to see in the future.

The **UPDATED REVIEW** What in the ever loving Holy Grail did I just devour!! Pure damn GOLD!! This was an amazing read! I couldn’t put it down! The story between these two. Their history. The family history! Ughhhh. I am going to wait to give my full review until it goes live because you guys WILL WANT TO READ THIS BOOK!! And I do not want to give anything away!! ——————————————————————————————— So let’s talk about these two! Holy shit you guys!! My first F/F read and I devoured this in one weekend. The history with Olivia and Clay and how far they go back and the attraction and pull that these two have for each other, is what every needs in their life. I loved that they both bullied each other. How Olivia would give Clay a taste of her own medicine. Or how Clay just couldn’t take it if Olivia didn’t give her back the sass. And the Tryst Six!!! OH MY GOD! I need more of them brothers cause whoa! The girls are both broken in their own ways. Olivia because she’s never been accepted because she comes from the “wrong side” of the tracks (literally). And she knows full well that she’s gay. And Clay because she’s rich and her parents are a mess. And all she wants to do is please her family and she just can’t figure it out. But she can’t let Olivia go! Fantastic dynamic! Love it all. And want more!! Penelope never fails to deliver amazing writing! Thank you for the opportunity to read this awesome story! I need more of this crew!! **Recipient of an ARC for an honest review!**

    5 Venom Stars! This is a smart, sexy, super hot AND emotional story. -Olivia is a kicka*s girl. She is smart, motivated and bucks the status quo. I LOVE her. She is mature for her age and seems to understand what’s important, the bigger picture. Clay is a privileged debutante who has bullied Olivia for being openly gay, for being poor…but, really it’s her putting her unhappiness on an easy target. They have a very intense relationship! They even are competitive and aggressive against each other play 5 Venom Stars! This is a smart, sexy, super hot AND emotional story. -Olivia is a kicka*s girl. She is smart, motivated and bucks the status quo. I LOVE her. She is mature for her age and seems to understand what’s important, the bigger picture. Clay is a privileged debutante who has bullied Olivia for being openly gay, for being poor…but, really it’s her putting her unhappiness on an easy target. They have a very intense relationship! They even are competitive and aggressive against each other playing on the SAME sports team! -Clay feels suffocated by expectations put on her. She is unhappy at home and with her life in general. She is fighting against parts of herself she wants to hide. She is bitter, unhappy and feels trapped so she lashes out. Both of them have less than ideal home situations. However, Olivia (Liv) has support and love from her older brothers who basically raised her. There’s a hint of resentment and guilt in the household, but they are there for each other(I love her brothers and their family dynamic!) Her brothers are interesting, funny and a great addition to the story. Clay’s family has suffered a tragic loss and her parents are crumbling. She’s in a lot of pain. She also feels pressure from her family to be the perfect southern society young lady. -The two girls have great feisty banter. The hate lust vibes are combustible🔥 They are so scorching hot together, the chemistry is incredible and the secret nature of the “enemies”hooking up adds a bit of taboo that only makes it hotter! (Clay isn’t “out” and she fights the label and what that would mean for her high society life.) -I love that it’s hot AND emotional. There’s a lot of wisdom imparted and surprise moments of understanding. It’s a fun and intelligent story with smart characters and conversations. I LOVE it! When feelings get involved things get complicated and I felt sympathy/empathy for both characters. So many emotions! The secondary characters, the setting and the vibe of the book are great. I absolutely adore the characters and story! So very good!

    I love how Penelope Douglas pushes the boundaries with her writing and the readers comfort level. She introduced me to many of my favorite tropes.

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!
