New Release + Review: Cruel Love by Isla Vaughn

Cruel Love, an enemies to lovers, bully romance with a surprise pregnancy, by Isla Vaughn is out now! Grab you copy today to this conclusion of Aspen & Phoenix's duet!


I fell for the enemy. He broke me, and then put me together again. Our future? It’s worth fighting for. Or it was before the accident. The accident stole Phoenix from me. Now, he’s nice… kind even. But the memory of me—of our baby—is gone. Despite everything, I’m left fighting for our child and the man I’ve come to love. How much will I have to sacrifice to bring him back? What happens when secrets buried deep in the past burst into the present? Do we have a chance? Or is it inevitable that history repeats itself and we’re forced to go our separate ways?

Cruel Love is an enemies-to-lovers, fake relationship, new adult, sports, bully romance with pregnancy, plenty of angst, heat, and a HEA. This is the conclusion of Cruel Hate, and Aspen and Phoenix’s duet. This book contains mature content that some readers may find disturbing.

Heather's ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review:

Cruel Love is the ending to Phoenix and Aspen's story. We do pick up right where Cruel Hate leaves off.... We all know how that ending left me and how I needed this book like I needed my next breath. I needed to know how Aspen and Phoenix were going to get their HEA. Let me tell you they have an uphill battle and Aspen is the true superstar in this book. Yes Phoenix has an uphill battle of his own, but she has to come to terms with the fact that the man that she has fallen in love with may never remember what they had together. Where many would have put their heads in the sand she steps up and does what she needs to do for her unborn child.

The ending to this has me craving the next book in the series. I will say this author definitely knows how to dangle the proverbial carrot in front of us..... Damn you Isla.
