Goodreads Blurb:
Bethany was born into a world of privilege and has never had to want for anything in her life. Her parents gave her everything but the one thing she desired the When Bethany’s mother dies, her Father becomes even more distant with the immediate replacement of Bethany’s mother by “Miko”, a woman who has no compassion nor interest in Bethany whatsoever.

On her own and living in a penthouse, a lavish gift from her father, Bethany ignores all responsibility as she lives on a weekly allowance her Father is sure to place into her bank account. With too much time on her hands, Bethany is free to pursue other interests such as a young man she never cared for in school named Ryan Blackwood. Ryan is a male escort for hire and has made his living on pleasuring the higher echelons of New York society women, but when he meets Bethany his game is shifted from one of hunter to one of prey and he will soon find out that she is not the easy target he once imagined.

Their torrid love affair is filled with a painful need to harm each other in every way, including the bedroom. Will Bethany finally receive the love she has always desired or will her lineage doom her forever?

“The Bitter End” is book one in the Golden Crown Series, filled with lust, greed, suspense and murder. Sometimes new beginnings lead only to bitter ends.

My Review:
I honestly did not know what to expect this being my first time reading any of Rue Volley’s works. What I got was a wickedly twisted read that I’d say is the furthest from sugar coated as it gets. Very blunt, erotic, realistic and unpredictable. Any fans of the genre will enjoy the jaw dropping effect of The Bitter End.

Beth comes from money. Tons of it. She’s a bit of a bitter soul and has reason to be. No matter what she’s ever done, her father has NEVER seen her. I mean actually see her as a person rather than just a female or whatever else is in his mind. She’s not the child he’s always wanted. The SON he could leave his business and wealth to. She’s just…a woman.

Ryan was not raised from money. Far from it actually. He’s had a very hard life and used his assets and smarts to keep him afloat and with no financial worries. It’s either you take him as he is or not at all. Ryan is a VERY aggressive and virile male that I’m sure the ladies will droll over ;)

I had a love/hate relationship with both of the main characters throughout the story. I still do! But their drama and wicked evil ways kept me turning the pages and looking for more. A great series start that truly hooks the reader.
