Author: Bella Jewel
Release Date: January 12, 2015
They say there's a fine line between love and hate.
I married a douchebag.
I didn't know it at the time.
He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.
I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.
Then he left me high and dry.
Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.
He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.
I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.
I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.
With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.
Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.
I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.
He has to pay.
And pay he will.
*This is part two of a two book series and it will contain a HEA – Readers over 18+

My heart aches. My mind and heart is such a jumbled mess of emotions I can't even begin to explain. There was so much anguish and torment for both Katia and Marcus that I almost couldn't take it. No amount of warning could have prepared me for what took place in this story. My should was crushed, my heart broken, and I felt as if I was suffering right along with them.
In 'Til Death Volume One, Marcus was a character I loved to hate. He was a monster. I hated him for what he did to Katia, yet I couldn't help but love his character at the same time because he was so complicated and intriguing. In Volume Two, I fell completely head over heels in love with him. He was aggravating at times but the monster he was had changed into something else entirely. Marcus was not the same man Katia had left all that time ago. And Katia, oh how I cried for her. When she left Marcus, she left it all. With no money, no real job, she was struggling to make a new life for herself while continuing to care for her ailing mother. She was such a pure soul, an angel who would do anything for her mother. When I found out it wasn't just her mom she needed to care for, my jaw hit the floor. But even angels can be torn from the light and plummet into complete darkness. They can lose themselves. Love can be the most amazing thing in the world. It can build you up, and it can help you live. But at the same time, love can be the one thing that breaks your soul and destroys the person you once were.
So many unexpected events and occurrences happened throughout the story. Many things I did not think could happen. I do not want to give it all away, but I will say one thing… expect the unexpected. I seriously thought at one point that Katia was going to get her HEA when she met Jahred. I would have bet my life savings on the two of them getting together and him being the one to give her all she needed. Yup, not happening. Even though he was only mentioned in a VERY small part of the book, he was such a key character, and I was left wanting to know so much more about him and his story. I have to say I was rooting for the two of them to become a thing, but then Marcus came back in full swing and it was like "Jahred who?"
The ending has to be one of my favorite book endings of all time. It completely blew me away. Just when I thought my heart was beyond repair, that the end was going to just about kill me, Bella Jewel wrote a ending that not only put all the pieces of my heart back together, but made every fairytale ending you could ever wish for look boring and mediocre at best. Yup, thats right. Prince Charming and his happily ever after has NOTHING on the way 'Til Death Volume Two ended.
