Release + Review - One Eighty - Marie James

One-Eighty by Marie James is LIVE and FREE in KU! Get ready to fall in love with your next book boyfriend!

“A bully romance like no other! One Eighty is a whole new take on a trope that I have quite the love/hate relationship with and this book landed on MEGA love for me. I’m super picky when it comes to bully romance, I need to see and be able to actually feel the characters to be able to love a hero that has done so many truly atrocious things, but Marie James took that to a whole new level with Dalton. There’s a lot of heartbreak in their story, a lot of forgiving, a lot of growing up and every bit of it had me glued to the pages.” ~Red Hatter Book Blog
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.
Changed him.
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.
Start reading today! 

Louise's Review 
Warning; if you have triggers from bullying and self-harm this book is not suitable for you.

One Eighty is the 1st book in the Westover Prep series, I am generally not interested in the “bully romance” storylines but this one caught my attention.

Piper has been tormented her whole life, not just by 1 person but by almost everyone at school; a incident in the 6th grade got her a nick name she would rather forget. Just when she allowed herself to venture out she is once again fooled. After getting in the car with her bully she never expected to wake up days later with guilt and a soft spot for Dalton, because he can’t remember anything.

This story broke my heart in so many different places, the torment that Piper went through and that fact that she could shine above it all absolutely amazed me.

I look forward to reading book 2, Catch Twenty-two.

Jennifer's Review 
Be prepared to do a one eighty. One Eighty was a good novel. I enjoyed it enough to read the entire book through. This book has angst and pain along with your normal teenage stuff.

The plot if this book was interesting. What happens when the person who has made your life terrible loses all of their memories? This story explores that with a heavy theme of redemption.

I liked the characters well enough. Piper annoyed me a tad but, but I liked her heart of gold. Dalton made me hate him almost immediately. However, I feel that was perfect for this storyline. I liked watching him develop.

The heat in this book is good. The writing style is the only area I struggled with. I liked the prologue and how it fit into the story. However, there are questions this book left unanswered for me. 

Overall, this was a good book. The next book looks good as well. I'm interested to see where the author goes with them.
