Release Day: 'Til Death by Bella Jewel - Review & Giveaway



Available on Amazon, Amazon.de, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads       

Synopsis:

They say there's a fine line between love and hate.

There is.

I married a douchebag.

I didn't know it at the time.

He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.

I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.

Then he left me high and dry.

Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.

He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.

I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.

I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.

With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.

Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.

I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.

He has to pay.

And pay he will.

*This is part of a two book series and it will contain a HEA – Readers over 18+



Review:

'Til Death is part one of a two part series. Just a warning it ends and you will want more! This is both good and bad. Good because it means it was a great read, bad because I for one am not a patient person! I want the HEA now! Oh well, I will try and wait patiently for it to come out to see how it all plays out. I'm sure it will be worth it.

This first part, this book, was not what I expected. I thought from the synopsis it would be more the story of how Katia plans/gets revenge on Marcus, but it is not. You will have to wait for book two for that. This is more how she gets to that point. The whole time reading I am waiting for her to find out what is really going on and you wait for most of the book. Still a great read that I really enjoyed.

Katia is one of those girls that you are just like what is wrong with you? How can you be so delusional? She even says in the prologue how this is her story and you will think this. She was right. But then she also says how Marcus will win you over like he did her and well...until the end I was not a Marcus fan. I guess he started to win me over slightly, but not with his hot rich guy who doesn't care about you at all thing. He started winning me over with his inner thoughts and struggles towards the end, which Katia didn't know. I am not sure why Katia was so in love with him or why she agreed to marry him. Sure they had amazing sex, but that does not a loving relationship make. She always wonders if he even loves her, but then she clings to the hope that since he married her that means he does care about her even though he never shows it. He is really not even very nice to Katia. It is just kind of sad watching her as...I don't know how she put up with him. Well I do. He would just have sex with her and she would stop worrying or caring. She is kind of naive and not very smart and just puts up with way more than I would, but I still liked her somehow. This is why Bella is a great author. She wrote a character that I would normally hate, but had me actually like her and be sympathetic towards her. I don't know how that happened, but I did want a happily ever after for the two of them right from the beginning. I wanted Marcus to realize that he cares for Katia and for Katia to have her love returned. So we shall see what happens next!

Marcus, as I said above, is not really a nice guy. You know he is into some shady things, and he is not very nice to Katia, but I didn't hate him either. I did like as you get into the book he does start feeling emotions and it was kind of fun reading that. He doesn't know what to do or even what these weird things are that he is feeling as he is just not used to feeling much of anything. He does grow on you slowly, and the end I was just like what is going on? Why are you doing this?!? I really can't wait to read the conclusion of this story. I can't wait to see what is really going on and how they will work everything out. I think Katia and Marcus will be great together, but I have no idea how they will be able to get there. Katia is pretty broken and Marcus...I don't know what is going on with him. We shall see.
