Young. Wealthy. Elite. Ruthless. The boys of Clermont Bay ruled over this town as if it was their kingdom.

And Beck Clermont controlled them all.

He was arrogant and conceited, and from the moment I met him, he had made up his mind about me.

Dangerously handsome and wickedly cruel, he had no intention of letting me spend my senior year under the radar.

The secrets of old money ran deep, and even though I barely knew them, the sins of my family had put a target on my back.

He was a hurricane, and I was unprepared for the storm.

His touch fatal. His impact irreparable.

There was no negotiation.

He stole my heart. Without warning, without permission.

He was the enemy, but that didn’t stop me from falling for The Touch of a Villain.

the touch of a villain

by holly renee

The Touch of a Villain by Holly Renee was an addictively captivating intro into The Boys of Clermont Bay series that consumed every inch of my soul right from page one and kept a tight hold on my heart the entire time I was lost in the words of this beautifully twisted enemies to lovers/bully romance. The author's brilliant storytelling was full of angsty moments that left me completely breathless as I inhaled Josie and Beck's intense tale that kept me on edge throughout every twist and turn.

Josephine Vos and Beckham Clermont's chemistry was absolutely explosive, setting your heart on fire and leaving you utterly speechless. The sexual tension between these two was f*cking HOT and I loved the intensity that bled from the pages of their addictive love story. Their intimate moments were pure gold and I was OBSESSED with every second part of their journey. Josie and Beck's story reminds me of a modern day Romeo and Juliet and I couldn't get enough of the drama that followed these two. Let me just say there was NEVER a dull moment between them.

Holly Renee did a phenomenal job consuming her readers with her words and OH MY FREAKING GOODNESS am I so mad at her right now...especially for leaving us hanging like that. I cannot wait to get my greedy little hands on the next book, The Fall of a God! I wish we could just fast-forward to June already because I just don't think my heart can handle the anticipation of the wait!
