One-Eighty; Westover Prep #1
(A standalone within a series)
by: Marie James
A new twist on a bully romance. Dalton is unlike any bully I’ve read yet. A boy who not only instigated the bullying of a young girl, but also grew and festered those around him to be just like him. This is a person to dislike on every level and yet this is who the hero of the story is. Marie James set a challenge and I was curious to see how it played out. Could the ultimate villain be redeemed?
Piper, also known as Bloody Mary, thanks to Dalton, has been bullied her entire life. How the sweet, next door neighbor has put up with it for as long as she has is the ultimate mystery, but it is now senior year and she is looking forward to eventually escaping the monster who lives next door.
Dalton is the king of the school and everyone follows his lead. He’s always picked on Piper so everyone else does as well, that is until an almost fatal car crash wipes his memory and he has no recollection of anything past the age of five. He never once recalls bullying Piper and all he sees is a gorgeous girl living next door. Why do people keep telling him he’s such a bad guy? All he wants is to get to know his next door neighbor.
What would you do to have a clean slate of any mistake, wrongdoing, or blunder? The only thing is everyone else around you remembers exactly what you’ve done and you don’t. The one person you want is the one person you can’t have. This doesn’t make sense to your clean-slated mind. Perhaps that clean-slate doesn’t look so good anymore. Or are you willing to show that you are a new person?
This entire concept is very well done on both sides of that “what if”. How can you trust the ultimate villain and how do you earn that trust when you’ve been the villain?
One-Eighty will dig deep into a lot of issues you may not feel comfortable touching, but they are real issues that happen to teens today. Come out of the other side of the story and I think you’ll be happy that you stuck with Dalton and Piper and hopefully see more of what happens at Westover Prep.
He loves what he can’t remember —she can’t forget the truth…
Arrogant, controlling, and an absolute jerk.
He’s everything I loathe, and everything I want to forget.
But he doesn’t remember a bit of it.
One accident, one misstep, changed everything.
Now, he’s different and unbelievably sexy.
But I refuse to fall for a bully.
Sexy, smart, feisty, and perfect.
She’s everything I want, and nothing that I remember.
What she says I am, I refuse to believe.
For her, I will be anything.
I will do anything.
Even destroy the bully from before.
