Mel's thoughts...

OK OK OK OK OK so it's been about 24 hours since I finished Pretty Venom by Ella Fields and I've now had time to absorb this book. This book WAS HEAVY. And let me tell you it starts off with a love/hate and I LIVE for the LOVE/HATE. And that LOVE well that love was amazing. But it was young LOVE. What happened next....... Let's just say I DID NOT READ THE BLURB. I usually never do. LIKE NEVER. And I think by me not reading the blurb or know anything about the book the IMPACT was LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN. The Pain and the HURT was like being PUSHED into the water in Antarctica. Just imagine that feeling. 100000000 knives stabbing you. Cause OMG what happens in this book was DEVASTATING, AND THE HURT, THE HURT I felt that SHIT. It crushed me DEEP. But here's the thing with this one, the anti hero was not who I expected it to be. And if anything I think that hurt TWICE as bad. And I thought HOW THE HELL. HOW IN THE FUCKING HELL am I GOING TO BE ABLE TO FORGIVE. Like I was the one that had to forgive right. But shit the AFTERMATH was just as BAD and I LITERALLY wanted to SCREAM BLOODY MURDER. FACCCKKKK ELLA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I honestly didn't know if I was going to make it out of this and be OK. Thankfully I was but the journey to get there was paved with rocks, and cracks and glass. Nothing worth having is easy. That's the saying right??? "You're my greatest foe because you're my greatest love." This is one of my fav reads of the year. I love the MESSY, the LOVE STORIES that have battle scars. To me those are my favs because they show you that what you've been through together and that you can come out of those battles stronger for it.


Callum Welsh perfected the art of hating me when we were two kids who believed we’d be forced into marriage.

He thought I wanted it, but my only wish had been for him to leave me alone.

Then one afternoon, he stole my first kiss.

Despite all he’d done, everything changed after that.

As the years passed, our hearts thawed, and he no longer hated me.

In fact, he loved me enough to make me his wife.

Until I ruined everything with one stupid mistake.

That hatred returned in the form of cruel words and even crueler deeds.

But we weren’t kids anymore.

I could handle his brand of venom.

He would be mine again, even if it cost me the remains of my heart.

Warning: contains cheating and an anti-hero who might make you throw your kindle.
