    "Our breathing turned ragged, echoing into our mouths. My whimpering had his eyes blazing like black coal as he watched me climb closer and closer. “Yes, Mouse. Come on your husband’s cock.” Something old: I'm such a sucker for second chance romancesSomething new: I'm such a sucker for Callum WelshSomething borrowed: "He’d broken my heart too many times to count, but I wouldn’t let him break me."Something blue: ____________ The Story Be...

    4.5 Pretty Venom is the final book in the Gray Springs University series by Ella Fields. Typing that sentence made me sad, because I have come to love this series and the characters. They will be greatly missed. If you haven't started this series yet, don't wait another second! The writing is phenomenal, the stories are beautiful, the characters are flawed and complex, and  the romances are complicated and passionate. Callum and Renee meet i...

    MY REVIEW can also be found on my blog: KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS Renee wasn't all sweet; she was pretty venom wrapped up in a sugary bow. Deceptive yet honest at the same time. Underneath, her layers multiplied in ways she didn't often let show on the outside. PRETTY VENOM:  Is the third book, full length novel in Ella Field’s ‘Gray Springs University’ series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone. In this we meet Cal...

    I finished this story in one 2.30am binge reading session. If I could give it 6 stars I would. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It was simply extraordinary. I think this is Ella's bravest and rawest writing to date for me. These are not easy characters to love. Callum especially tested every boundary I had. I legit hated him at certain points. Yep. Hated!! To call him an assehole is a nice way of putting it. I can definitely see lots of people arguing over cer...

    Ella Fields made me feel every range of emotion while reading and experiencing Pretty Venom. I feared for my heart a couple of times because my puls was off the charts. The cause was Callum and Renee. They both made me feel everything and I mean EVERYTHING! All thanks to the brilliant mind and words from Ella Fields. Callum and Renee complimented each other beautifully. Whether it was the hate/love game they both played masterfully or when they w...

    5 StarsIt's taken me an entire day to decide on a rating for this. This is my third or fourth Ella Fields story and I can say with unequivocal certainty that she just keeps getting better and better. The fact she got me to emotionally invest in a relationship between two characters I didn't connect with in any way speaks volumes. Despite the fact I found both Renee and Callum to be on the selfish and vapid side, it still hurt when Callum "sent a ...

    “Love was magic. Capable of making you believe the most impossible was always possible. But it wouldn’t hold two people together, no matter how fiercely they felt for one another". Every time I start an Ella Fields book, two things happen to me. I breathe a sigh of relief for finally having it in my hands and then slowly but surely, I start to get nervous. It’s not a question of whether the story is going to be good because you know for a ...

    5 STARS If someone has control over your heart, the worst thing you could do was make an enemy out of them. And like a fool, I had. OH MY GOD! THIS BOOK.I.Can't.DEAL.First of all, that warning is no joke. I wanted to cry, yell, rip my hair out, and throw my kindle at the wall. This book wrung every emotion out of me, most of all all consuming rage. So much rage. Like ALL OF THE RAGE. But it was also all consuming. This book took over my entire ...
  • Sarah - Musings of the Modern Belle
    AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW5+ I’M A FOOL FOR YOU CROWNSYou know what makes Ella Fields unique in a world inundated with romance novels? She writes about real, troubled, flawed characters. Her romances aren’t easy. These characters have to work for love. But I have found, with the Gray Springs series, that her fictional love stories resonate because they are applicable to real life. We don’t live in the land of fantasy romance and alpha hero...

    I have been looking forward to this book, ever since I read the ending of "Bittersweet Always". I was sure it was gonna rock...and boy did it !!!Now I am gonna be honest here.... It has been a long time since a book has frustrated me this much !! I wanted to take both the MC's heads and smack them together !! I was a bit worried about my bloodpressure at one point !These two have definitely had a "love/hate" relationship right from the start. Th...

    *** LIVE & only 99c ***4.25 stars...What it feels like to read an Ella Fields novel:Seriously. Her books fucking hurt 😭💔Callum & Renee's story was as beautiful as it was heart-wrenching 💛 I'm always in awe of the strong emotions this author can evoke. If you're a fan of rooting for two imperfect people fighting for an imperfect love (and you don't mind feeling like your heart is being pummeled), then Pretty Venom is definitely for you!!

    “If you make someone your world, do not complain when the ground crumbles beneath your feet.” From the moment I read the synopsis to Pretty Venom, I knew this was one book I had to get my hands on and let me tell you… it did not disappoint. Ella Fields delivered everything I hoped she would and so much more. Pretty Venom held my attention with a vice like grip from the start and didn’t let go. It was an intense, consuming story that was ...

    5 “I Belong With You, And You Only” Stars! (ARC provided by Social Butterfly PR)-It was our actions, our experiences, and the guidance of past mistakes that would glue what was ruined back into one slightly misshapen yet beautiful piece. Renee Grant moves from New York to the tiny town of Trellara when her father joins firms with his best friend from college. Soon they are spending a lot of time with her dad’s new business partner and his f...

    How the hell can I hate and love a book so much? I’ll tell you how … because Ella Fields wrote it and oh man, can she bring out the feels in me. She sure knows how to work my emotions, get my pulse racing, my gut in knots, my BP through the roof, my aggression spiking to dangerous levels, and me having to sound the low flying Kindle alert. ⚠God, I hated Callum and Renee’s stupidity at times, I really did. They were both products of their ...

    It's been a while since I finished a book. Two weeks to be exact. Real life hasn't been nice to me the past few weeks BUT Ella Fields saved me. I binged this book in one day. FUQ WORK and FUQ SLEEP because I NEEDED TO make sure this is HEA! Ooh and my review is crazy, you've been warned. You gotta be sitting down for this my friends.First off, I've never hated a character as much as I hated Callum Welsh. I'm still surprised by how my e-reader sur...
  • Serena
    THIS BOOK. THIS. BOOK. KILLED ME. This is one of my FAVOURITE stories from Ella. Callum is such an asshole, but this story omfg, it OWNED me! You will want to throw your kindle so many times. Make sure it's very well protected! But Goddd, I couldn't get enough of these two! I couldn't stop turning the pages. I couldn't stop from falling utterly and completely in LOVE with this angsty love story. My heart cracked, smashed, burned and soared. Basic...

    Good lord, where do I even begin with this book? I had never read Ella Fields before I picked up this book but as soon as I read the blurb for Pretty Venom, I knew it was my kind of read. It screamed angst and emotional turmoil and loads of push and pull, and let me just tell you, this book did not disappoint. Ella Fields delivers everything she promises with that jaw dropping blurb! Pretty Venom had my chin on the floor, my heart in my throat an...

    I had such a great time reading Pretty Venom this week!!!!!!! Such a shame I was too busy with RL and could't do any updates.It wasn't all perfection, Mom/daughter relationship was a bit ridiculous and there were some OTT situations but despite that, Pretty Venom was a fantastic read. It's been awhile since a MF got me so emotionally entangled.
  • Anne Milne
    WOWZERSThis book is everything I've come to expect from this author she's upped the angst and really did a number on her readers this time.I'm not sure I can adequately express just how much Callum and Renee's story affected me. I wanted to know everything about these two and boy oh boy did Ella give it to me in spades. We follow this couple from innocent friendship to love and hate. As I read I alternated between happiness and full on hatred. I'...

    5 “Only You” StarsI would like to set the record straight. I am not a fan of young love(high school). It’s just not my thing. So starting this book and seeing that it starts at the age of 14, I was not sure this was gonna be for me. But I love this author so I decided to read on. And I’m so happy I did because I loved this story!!!Enemies who become more......parents who have only children who talk about how their children will end up mar...

    "What we want isn't always good for us, or what we should have in the end."This is an outstanding story by this author, I liked seeing bits from the previous couples and loved callum and Renee's story so much."Do you ever say anything without injecting at least a tiny barb of venom?"I devoured this book In a night I was so attached to it.

    What an emotional ride! To say I'm exhausted is an understatement...I'm drained, yes, but also very happy! With Pretty Venom, I'm discovering Ella Field's work and I loved the depth of her character's emotions and her compelling writing.I usually tend to avoid a story about cheating, let alone a book solely based on this concept. In was a true challenge to me.Although it made me really uncomfortable, it also captivated me and I found myself rooti...

    This book will tear you apart in the best and worst way! Be ready to be thrown through all of your emotions. You will be swooning over something one minute and ready to throw you kindle/book the next. This is absolutely one of the best books I have ever read! Be prepared to read this all in one sitting because I promise you will not be able to put it down once you start.

    After loving The characters so much from the first two stories, I didn’t know they could be outdone. Well Ella just blew me away. Callum is officially my new favorite book a-hole. His appearance in the series before didn’t even begin to show him enough. I wanted to punch him, lick him and do much more to him throughout the book! Renee and Callum’s journey was even better than I could anticipate!!! There were time I wanted to scream through ...

    Perfection!Its the only word i can think of for all Ella's books i've ever read.Sweet, swoony, tear jerker, panty melting love scene, heart breaking angst, realistic plot, great characters....these are Ella's words.I love Callum gor all his as**leness. I love Renee for all her queen-ness.If you read the previous books from this series, you'll see by reading this book that there are so many misunderstanding for this couple in those books.Stuck up,...
  • Helen Altafulla
    There needs to be a disclaimer for the heart with every Ella Fields book. This author knows how to make you fall in love, shatter your soul without repair, and then complete the impossible by mending your heart and soul back together in the best way possible. That is what has happened to me while reading Pretty Venom. There was one point where I honestly didn’t think my heart to take anymore torture. I was a crying mess cursing out Callum’s n...
  • Anita LaFranchi
    I loved their story. We know some of Callum and Renee’s story from Suddenly Forbidden and Bittersweet Always. This one gives us their backstory- how they met and came together, it gives us their pain and betrayal because they just wouldn’t talk through what happened and Callum made it his job to punish Renee. When the truth finally come out, we have their heartbreak all over again but now Callum wants to make things right. I lost sleep over t...
