What happens when fire meets gasoline?
That’s all it took was a spark. One kiss and I was hooked. I wanted to hate Corey Winchester more than anything and most days I did. He was an arrogant asshole, and bully. He didn't know the first thing about love but yet here I was falling into his lap.
Then things changed. I changed. Someone broke me, and he was there to pick up the pieces showing me a part of him I had never seen. Compassion, trust, and love. I wanted to hate him, with everything in me I wanted to look at him and feel nothing but I guess love and hate can’t coincide together.
What happens when you think you know someone? Like really know them?
Turns out we didn't know each other as well as we thought.
Turns out if you play with fire for too long you, you will in fact get burned.
My names Mimi Jones and this isn't a fairy tale--
Okay so I've done a complete 360. Yes you heard me correctly, the words no one that knows me ever thought they would hear, I LOVE COREY!!!
That's right, my favorite man to hate is now the man I worship.
After books 1 & 2 I'd have been the first to jump on the lets beat the hell outta Corey train, I hated him with a passion, didn't think anything could ever make me even sort of like him, then came Bittersweet Hate and my world was turned upside down.
Book 3 is my favorite by far, it's well written as with the previous books but this one tops them both!
"You know what? Nothing in life is simple. Love is hard, it's hard to get, and it's hard to keep. You know why? Because people like you, they find it and then run; they are so scared of the unknown that the second that they realize they're falling they leave. Protecting yourself in this fake bubble does nothing. It's a false sense of security, love isn't meant to be painful. What you're experiencing is fear, and you know what Mimi? You're the strongest person I've ever met. You stuck up for me when no one else would. You protected me, and now I'm protecting you from yourself. Let go, fall helplessly and madly in love and I guarantee Corey will be there to catch you."-Jenna
Awwww isn't that just the sweetest thing? How could you not listen to that advice?
As much as I'm looking forward to book 4 I think it's going to be hard to top this one, so bring it on Ms Beck, were waiting!!

My junior year of high school I gave my heart to Corey Winchester. He was handsome, cocky, and a pure gentlemen. Then everything changed in an instant. When I found out he was spreading malicious rumors about me, after I refused to sleep with him I was utterly surprised. To add to it, he broke up with me in front of the whole school.

That’s what Corey wanted, and why I didn't know. Then Rex Winchester came along. Corey’s cousin, and someone I knew I shouldn't be getting close with. A whole six feet of hotness, a smile that melted the panties off of every girl in a fifty mile radius, and a heart of gold. He could have anyone he wanted, so why he chose me Corey’s ex, the bullied, slutty girl was beyond me. All I knew was that I wanted him. I wanted him more than anything. The problem was, I couldn't tell if Rex, was just like Corey or if his intentions were as innocent as he was making them out to be.
My names Jenna Haines, and this is the story of how the one thing I wanted.. turned out to be the one thing that would hurt me the most. What happens when the one thing you least expect to happen, does? When all the lies and secrets come out. Well you're about find out.
