Destroy Me (Crystal Gulf #1) by Shana Vanterpool
Destroy Me (Crystal Gulf Book 1) - Shana Vanterpool

 

syns

 

Bach lives his life with honesty and without restraints, happy to be known as a sexy as all hell, unapologetic asshole.

When he drinks, he drinks hard.

When he wants a woman, he makes sure she knows it.

When he opens his mouth, it’s either to piss someone off or to turn someone on.

You can normally find him with one hand on a bottle and one hand on a woman, trying to forget his past.

Harley Evans is a twenty-one-year-old year old college student. She's a good girl who fell hard for Dylan, who’d promised her forever. But Dylan, Bach’s best buddy, lied.

He enlisted in the Army, crushing Harley with equal parts anger and sadness. She’d already lost her father to that choice. Heartbroken, she falls back into depression.

Stuck in Crystal Gulf all summer with little to do, Harley needs a distraction. Enter Bach, sexy as f*#ck distraction, ready and willing.

Dylan’s not all bad though. Before he left, he asked Bach to watch out for Harley, knowing she’d never go for a guy like Bach. She’s too good for him. Too good for anyone.

But Dylan was wrong. He never should have left them together. Bach is there to pick up the pieces Dylan left behind. Soon pieces aren't enough. He wants more, needs more Harley.

I really had a love-hate relationship with this book. It was total roller coaster ride all the way through. Bach was a rough character to read. He is pretty dark and damaged and is pretty much self-destructing throughout the book. But the more we learn about him the more we can understand where he is coming from and just want to help him. It is a long hard, heart breaking journey for sure. I was not sure what to think of Harley and really didn’t like the way she handled it when Dylan enlisted. She was a real brat in my eyes. I was not a huge fan of her at all. But it did work well for the book Overall, while it was a very dark book it was still very enjoyable and I liked it as a lot, it was heartbreaking and yet fun to read. If you like a darker romance, than I recommend this book.

I rate it 3 ½ ★

Destroy Me - Tahereh Mafi

This little novella helped me understand Warner so much better. I mean I knew he had daddy issues but, he has some other issues too that's going on with him right now. I don't think he's the bad guy that he's made out to be. Even though he's the leader of his sector & he got the job from his father, I don't think he had a choice. It's his way of survival. I'm kinda rooting for him now. I still like Adam & I think he truly does have feeling for Juliette. He was just ther first for her when she desperately needed someone. I also think Warner & Adam are both going to or already are using her for their own agendas. I guess we'll see though.

Destroy Me
Destroy Me - Tahereh Mafi 1.3 stars

- As someone who actually liked the insane side of Warner, I thought that this was just a pathetic excuse to shows how deep his love for Juliette is. Sure, he loves her, but since this was classified as a dystopian novel, we need to know others things in his mind, too. And then Mafi gave us this:
My motives were my own.

But these truths and my real motivations will be buried with me.

That would have worked. Except that she was writing in Warner's POV.

- I was hoping that maybe the author would show us "mentally disordered" side of Warner, but seriously. he just sounded like someone with a contamination / washing type of OCD, and a not so severe one:
I like to take long baths.
I've had an obsession with cleanliness for as long as I can remember. I've always been so mired in death and destruction that I think I've overcompensated by keeping myself pristine as much as possible. I take frequent showers. I brush and floss three times a day. I trim my own hair every week. I scrub my hands and nails before I go to bed and just after I wake up. I have an unhealthy preoccupation with wearing only freshly laundered clothes.


- So, I am now interested in Warner's dad instead. Also, since when did he has the same way of thinking as Juliette? Repeating and repeating and repeating words like this like this like this. Another one:
These letters are all I have left. 26 friends to tell my stories to.
26 letters are all I need. I can stitch them together to create oceans and ecosystems. I can fit them together to form planets and solar systems.

Damn.
- Warner is, surprisingly naive, espescially since he was described as "extremely manipulative".

Book review : Destroy me By Tahereh Mafi * Slight Spoiler*
Destroy Me - Tahereh Mafi

May 24-24

Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .

Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.

Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me, Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45

Review - I really liked this novella I liked being in warner's head he is very crazy at times but I think it's cause of how he was raised his father is crazier . Do you remember the scene where he shot that guy in the head well it turns out he was beating his family and Warner shot the guy wow I didn't see that coming .I really enjoyed this he really cares for Juliette in his own way I can't wait to see what happens in unravel me .

Quote-
A girl who spent the last year in an insane asylum .
A girl who would would try to shoot me dead for kissing her . A girl who ran away with another man just to get away from me .
of course this is girl I would fall for .
