Tormented


Esme Devlin - 2019
     I would never have played with fire and I would never have let it consume me. I would have listened to my friend.  I would have packed my bags and left.  I would have let him win.  But you can’t know what you don’t know.   I couldn’t have known about the secrets, the deception, the manipulation.  I could never have predicted the damage a single kiss could cause. But what I do know is that I’m a hell of a lot stronger than I was when I moved halfway across the world to Scotland.  He can push, he can pull, he can torment me and he can humiliate me. He won’t break me.  Because you can’t really break something that’s already broken.  Please note that Tormented is a DARK bully romance intended for mature audiences of 18+ only. It contains mature themes that may trigger readers. This is book 1 in a series and cannot be read as a standalone novel. Cliffy alert, but I promise it will be worth it.
