{Blog Tour Stop+Top 10+Giveaway} Bully by Penelope Douglas

Hello, my lovelies!
I'm so excited to be a part of this blog tour for Bully. Let me tell you a little story first before I proceed. I got Bully as a freebie from Amazon. I didn't think much of it, after all, it's a freebie, right? I love freebies but I'll be the first to admit, most freebies I get just get lost under my TBR pile. 

But then I hit another one of those dreaded book slumps. None of the books I have seems to appeal until I read the synopsis for Bully. I wasn't expecting anything at all but when I started reading, I was hooked. I got found myself loving Tate and then Jared, and then both of them. It was what I needed at the right moment and I loved every single moment of it. I still do. I've reread this thrice already and I loved it every single time. 

So, as part of the tour, Ever After Romance will be sharing with you guys a special top 10 list from Tate and Jared themselves. You'll also find the links where you can purchase the book in ebook and paperback format, and guess what? Bully is on sale right now. So just read the rest of this post, click on the links, leave a comment and enjoy!!

My name is Tate. He doesn't call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all. No, he'll barely even speak to me.

But he still won't leave me alone.

We were best friends once. Then he turned on me and made it his mission to ruin my life. I've been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got more sadistic as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to stay out of his way. I even went to France for a year, just to avoid him.

But I'm done hiding from him now, and there's no way in hell I'll allow him to ruin my senior year. He might not have changed, but I have. It's time to fight back.

*This novel contains adult/mature young adult situations. It is only suitable for ages 18+ due to language, violence, and sexual situations.
**This book is the first in a series but can be read as a STAND ALONE. The next books will focus on side characters from this story.
