He ruined me. Now, it’s my turn…
Atticus Rainier is an intoxicating monster.
The boy who was off limits was once my everything.
Then, the truth came out, and he broke me.
He called me a beautiful liar and walked away without a glance back.
But that naïve fourteen-year-old girl is gone.
The last four years have given me time to see what he really is.
A beautiful storm.
And I won’t be sucked into the vicious vortex that is Atticus again.
Instead, I’ll drown him in his own malice.
And once I shatter his soul, I’ll discard him…
The same way he did to me.
Beautiful Storm is the first book of the duet The Ruin of Liars following Atticus and Lili. This book is a mature new dark, college bully, new adult read, featuring a spicy, slow burn, enemies-to-lovers romance with a hint of mystery, a ton of heat, and plenty of angst to go around. This book is not a standalone, and continues in book two, Beautiful Chaos.
4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
I was here for Atticus and Lili's continuation to their prequel. I loved the fact that Lili was a tough cookie and was sticking to her ground and was acting oblivious to Atticus and his hatred towards her. She was at the same prestigious school as him for one thing only and that was for the same reason as Atticus, for the great performing arts program they had going.
For as much as Atticus wanted to continue hating Lili, he knew that deep down inside he just couldn't get over the fact that she meant more to him than he realized. This woman was his soulmate and it was killing him that she was acting indifferent towards him, but he was a big bully towards her as well.
Their push and pull was giving me whiplash (I swear!) But a book wouldn't be interesting if there was no drama involved correct! I was totally glued to my kindle with Atticus and Lili's story and I'm down to find out how it's going to end!
I love me a good bully college romance and this certainly gave me what I was looking for!
