What do you make of a book where a character falls in love with her abuser?
In this episode, Shani and Bridget dive deep into the novel while uncovering this different and rather controversial dark romance genre—bully romance. As the title suggests, B.B. Reid’s book depicts the story of an angsty teenage boy inflicting fear on the main character who found herself falling in love despite the bullying and torture.
Shani and Bridget talk over some of the themes that call for better treatment, especially in a genre as sensitive as dark romance novels. What are the ups and downs of Fear Me? Where are its hits and misses? What parts are off-putting? Should you read it?
