    This book starts off big And I mean HUGE Like a whole, What the f just happened Kind of huge It never stops Never You never know who the good guy, or bad guy is, in this book As soon as you think one way, it goes another.Dexter, oh my Gods, Dex Really, I m not even sure what to say about him One second I hate the guy, the next, I want to be Pandora Even though her life is utter he at times But really, freaking Dexter Booth, no matter how big of an a he is at times And he can be a massive d As well as have one Pandora, I love this girl, I do, but sometimes I just can t with her Girl needs to learn how to pick her battles Keep in mind it s not just Dex she going against at times, but her father, Caspian, Julian and Lai as well Pick your battles my girl Because as much as they may not see eye to eye at times these guys, and Dex, have something in common Dexter Booth isn t the kind of boy who gets bored of his toys He s the kind of monster who breaks them on purpose Pandora This is an all new world for Pandora, and it s one she s not liking very much As for Dex, he s not sure himself he likes the outsider too much, but has lost too much already to let her say what goes This book is so very wicked, and so very good Massive way to kick off a new series Last, remember this is a dark book, so you may not like everything in it Just saying, that s the way it goes.

    Usually, I rate three kinds of books ARCs, good books and books that are disasters Welcome, dear readers, to the latter I haven t read so baddly written book in ages all other one star ratings are going to the second place on the worst books i have finished list I hated Pretty Venom, then few other books as well, but even the cheapest m nage books were not so bad as this one I do not know where I was when I did not check that this author wrote the rubbish book The Boys that Tease But with this one she killed me for sure I lost few hours of my life for nothing, not even the plot was interesting or heroine strong willed and fierce Nooo. she fell for Dexter without an ounce of believability of such possibility I ve read some dark bully books not the darkest of all times, but still dark ones This is definitely dark, but without passion, believability, strong MCs actually, the book is too expensive for its worth There is no chemistry between the MCs, no love lost, nothing..even the plot felt like put together from various short stories without connecting links The blind spots and gaps were unbearable.I feel sorry for myself and any other reader who will be crazy enough to buy it.

    Pandora has just returned home after four years away at finishing school She s not exactly happy to see her family It s all about appearances with them, while all their dirty secrets are kept behind closed doors.She is now living in Lily Anna s shadow She even has to marry the dead girl s ex boyfriend.Pandora just wants to get back to her old life Her fiance Dexter and her father, just seem to want to torture her She is good for one thinga marriage to strengthen ties with a first born and to produce an heir.She s not going to just bow to their demands This girl isn t going to comply without fighting them every step of the way.So many secrets There is so much going on than we know Everyone is plotting This story is totally twisted and will appeal to your depraved side It s going to get pretty dirty And that ending.I want

    I am going to try and review without giving spoilers lol I felt so bad for Pandora and how everyone treated her She didn t ask for that life yet she was treated like an outcast She was also not treated as an equal with the Firstborns What those boys did to her made me so angry I felt so bad for her and wished for someone to stand up for her or for her to be able to fight harder But seems the harder she fought the she got punished An interesting secret was revealed about Dexter and I wonder if anyone will ever find out Of course the ending leaves us with one doozy of a cliff hanger I was so enthralled and intrigued with this book I can t wait until the next book to find out what happens.

    I Received this ARC Via BookSprout for and Honest Review.I Give this books 3.5 5, Listing as 3.Dark 3.5 5Heat 3.5 5Suspense 5 5Drama 5 5Romance 0 5, It s Book One After All.I NEED to know what s going to happen next The reason I listed this a is mainly due to the fact that beside the bullying from family and other People, and the erotic torture scenes, I m not getting much plot, it just seems a little overdramatized in the beginning and then then the content seems to repeat but from different people.I d like to know why the secret with Dexter and who is Minnie Really I will be reading Vol.2Looking forward to reading from this Author.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Oh my, what a read from Betti Rosewood This book is one of her best works in my opinion, it is dark and delicious, and possibly hard to read at times but so worth it Pandora wants to find her footing in this dark and crazy world that she has arrived in, while trying to follow the proper rules for everything And Dex is the leader that has one crazy mind We were left with a bit of a shocking ending so I cannot wait for the next book Just be ready for one wild and crazy read

    5 DARK AND TWISTED STARS I was captivated with this Dark and twisted story I could not look know you should, but you need and you keep reading Dexter and Pandora speak the same hurt each other, but they need each other just as much OMG.the ending is killing me, I can t breathe right now I need Book 2.

    Bully romances are my guilty pleasure and when they re as dark and twisted as a Hurt So Sweet, it is EVERYTHING I need and love about that trope I devoured this book in one sitting Pandora and Dexter s story consumed me from start to finish and that cliffhanger ending left me screaming in a fit of anger and pain.Dexter and Pandora had a complicated relationship Based on hatred but there is so much want and need there too A constant battle of wills Push and pull Dexter is so dark and deranged, devilishly handsome and loaded Everything that makes up the perfect anti hero we hate to love.The only thing stopping me from giving this a 5 star review Is I personally feel there was such a heavy focus on the sexual encounters, that the overall plot line wasn t nearly as developed as I would have liked I know there is a second part to the story coming, but I have just as many questions at the end of this book as I did at the beginning.I am very much looking forward to A Hurt So Sweet Volume Two and I cant wait to see where Betti takes us on this wild ride.

    Okay so the start off let me just be honest I m the type of person that I ll read 2 chapters of a book and if it don t draw me in like I wanted to I ll stop reading it and I won t go on any further however after reading just chapter it kept pulling me and like it kept giving me all these things and then taking them back to where you wanna keep reading you wanna keep finding out these things and this book you find out who Pandora really is and who lilyann oaks is Or should I say was it kind of gives this fill as to where her real parents kind of shelter off into this place and just took another girl and prepped her and told her how to act and how to be and who she was and then ripped it away from her and in this book you kind of see that it s like well it was kind of make switched at birth and a way but darker kind of book.And then you tell yourself why did this happen why was Pandora away why did they have a replacement was it because of family drama was because they just didn t want her and as you read along further into the book you start to get little bits and pc to the puzzle and even though I think of the book it s not quite done and you re still left question mean certain things it has that feel to where you wanna keep reading you re like oh my god scratching my head what s gonna happen next and that s what I feel about it and then you add in st borns and dexter it s like okay well he don t like Pandora all because of lily an That kind of pushing pool with chemistry between them of love and hate it s like your Like you know something s gonna happen in every time something happens you think okay dexter s this way because of this reason but he s coming around and then bam slap you in the face all these things start pouring out and it s like she s grasping at straws trying to figure out what s going on she knows that her dad want something from her dexter wants something from her and she know that there s a lot of secrets that need to be told and need to be found out but there s always something blocking her and it has me saying where the next book I need to buy it to find out if Pandora finds out what she knows everyone this is a read read now book.

    I loved this book I m not sure if Dexter will be redeemable I m not sure if I like him or not Which kind of makes me mad Which is a good thing because this book causes so much emotion in me But holy hell I can t wait for the second book

  15. Mom12 Mom12 says:

    As I started this book, I got very excited as I realized what and who it was about This book links directly to her Lords of Wildwood series, but it can be read as a standalone Personally, I felt lucky that I read the previous series since it mentions some backstory I felt I was able to connect to this one easier because of it, but i still think it could be a standalone.In Hurt, you meet Pandora, who is back home after four yrs of private school The family and staff call her Lily Anna, and she is woefully out of her league here She is being forced into high society as a young girl shes never met And these people are evil, scary and outrageous It s as if the city of Eden Falls is in a bubble where the rich and Firstborn rule the roost, and nothing else matters but power Pandora is disgusted, but learns what she has to do to survive.You want to hate Dexterbut you get glimpses into who he used to be and what he goes through These glimpses were outlined so well, giving valuable insight into the bad boy I couldn t hate Dexter I got the feeling that some of what Pandora goes throughDexter has to or had to go through too Keeping up appearances is important in Eden Falls.There was this feeling of dread that permeates the story Having Pandora replace another person is beyond creepyreminds me of a Lifetime Original Movie But every page was riveting Every page fascinating I rooted for Pandora because she was brave and strong None of the minor characters were unimportant There were whispers of secrets in every corner of this story I can t wait for the next book.
