Here are just a few glimpses into some of the stories contained in this anthology:
Charlie: This is part of the Rydeville series and yet if you haven’t read this amazing series yet, this short story will give you a look into what the story is about and what is coming up for the future of where the series is headed without giving too much away on either account. Charlie held a pivotal role in the overall arc, but here he is after the dust has settled just trying to pick up his shattered life and living with the remorse he initially played. This story will gut you if you are a fan and have you looking forward to the next book in the series.
The Original Bullet: This is a prequel to the series where you get a glimpse into Summer and Gavriel’s beginning. Summer is a meek, perfect girl by all appearances, but when Gavriel moves in across the street the girl inside comes out to say hello. These two unlikely people actually bond and give us a teaser to their bigger overall story. I haven’t read the trilogy yet, but I’m really looking forward to picking it up.
A Prequel to The Boy on the Bridge: A regrettable mistake, an unlikely friendship, and abuse all tie up in this prequel that is a total gripping read. I really need to know more after reading this story because I have a burning desire to find out what happens when things all go to hell for Hunter and Riley. This story will tug at your empathy and angst so hard. GAH! You’ll love it!
Hood River Rat: A new adult/coming of age MM dark romance. A story full of bullies, but also a story full of compassion. A student that is very aware of his sexual orientation, but now that he’s moved to a new school, he’s just trying to fit in socially and he doesn’t want to make his sexuality stand out, but when the biggest bully in school sets off his gaydar it’s hard not to take notice of him. This story had my emotions up and down and all over the place. I desperately need to know what happens next and I can’t wait to find out.
Loving your tormentor isn’t easy, especially when they collect broken hearts and parade them around like trophies. They’re the bad boys, the alpha a**holes, and the thorns in our sides. They push us past our limits, turn us on, and break us.
They’re our bullies.
They’re the class of 2020.
Eight bestselling authors are teaming up to bring you eight unique stories about the guys we love to hate.
