Caroline Whitmore is cunning, inconsiderate, and ruthless.
Despite that, I can’t recall a day when I haven’t thought about her at least once. On paper, we’re a perfect match—Only on paper.
In real life, we’re a disaster.
She hates me. Hates the way I dress—everything I say.
My basic existence.
But what I hate is more complicated.
Because I’m a moth to a gorgeous, petite, brunette flame.
I hate that I still remember what she wore the day we sat together in sixth grade.
And that I would move mountains for her smile.
I hate every guy that gets too close.
And that one of them gets to stay.
I hate that I want her so bad that I used my best friend to make her jealous.
But most of all, I hate that Caroline Whitmore is the one that got away.
Vicious, Savage, A viper in disguise of a debutante
Caroline Whitmore is the mean girl turned heroine that I’ve desperately been needing!!!
The Devilish queen of Hillcrest Prep that we meet in book #1 (Donovan & Grey’s book) is finally redeemed for her otherwise damming quality’s but also her lovable snark & whit
Vicious little snakes picks up where the previous book ends. Showcasing the dirty secrets & hidden looks Caroline & Liam disguised as hatred all these years.
Both are desperate to find their own lives but they keep managing to destroy each other in the process. They’re Caught in a cycle of lust, lies, and pain.
Liam is a nice guy at heart and he managed to be the only person to bring out a softer Caroline. But the underlying anger he has from both her and his role to his family causes him to self destruct and hurt the one person he wants to protect.
Caroline is ruthless, and her damage doesn’t discriminate. Pretty much if you get in her way or piss her off, she goes in for the kill. But Caroline isn’t as evil as we think. Her rage all stems from one person (who I won’t reveal) causing her to to lash out at everyone around her, even her self.
I loved that Trilina created Caroline and gave her her own book. She’s such a complex and deep character. It goes to show that the villain isn’t always a villain in the heart. Caroline’s wrath is a matter of survival that’s been instilled in her. She doesn’t trust anyone so she hurts everyone before they have a chance to hurt her. Putting her on top of the game from the start. But she’s also very loyal even in unsuspecting ways.
Together they’re exactly what they needed. Liam calms her, while Caroline pushed Liam to accept himself.
It’s angsty, a slow burn, intense drama, and more. It gave a great storyline into both our characters, with a great amount of development from the previous book. It gave everything to make this a book you can’t put down until it’s finished.
My only wish was That we got a longer epilogue of these two and their relationship further ahead in the future.
I also would have loved to have seen Van & Caroline’s relationship evolve more. They definitely had a better mutual understanding and trust this book around. But they could seriously rule the world as friends, so I’m kind of Shipping them
Even though It’s been a long awaited read, it was absolutely so worth the wait!!
