"Better When it Hurts is an intense and heartbreakingly beautiful story. I couldn't read fast enough to see what would happen next with Blue and Lola. A definite 5 star read for sure!" ~ Jenika Snow, USA Today bestselling author
A steamy romance about pain that binds us together...
Five years ago we lived in the same house. He was the ultimate bad boy.
And my foster brother.
Now he's back. Tougher, harder, meaner. All of it aimed at me, because I was the one who sent him away. It's payback time. He wants his pound of flesh, and I am helpless to say no.
BETTER WHEN IT HURTS is a full-length romance that does stand alone. Fair warning: Blue is a sexy bastard and a dirty talker!

In lust with Blue! Dark but sweet!
Five years ago we lived in the same house. He was the ultimate bad boy. And my foster brother.
Now he’s back. Tougher, harder, meaner. All of it aimed at me, because I was the one who sent him away. It’s payback time. He wants his pound of flesh, and I am helpless to say no.
I never wanted to put it down. Dark and sweet at the same time, the story of Blue and Lola kept me wanting more. Skye Warren has a way of putting depth into a story without all of the unnecessary details that drag out a story. This mat not be a really long book but there is nothing left out. You gain a feeling of how both of the characters have come to this point in their lives and you are turning every page anxious to see where they will go.
The dark moments are dark but not so much that they seem forced or over played. The love story definitely shines through and makes this one that I will be reading again. Blue is my new crush!
