She knew being the new girl at Wildwood would never be easy, considering who she is. But nobody warned Tinsley Sullivan we'd be doing everything in our power to make her high school experience one of the most horrible times of her life.

They say my name like I'm their king. 𝐶𝑟𝑖𝑠𝑝𝑖𝑛 𝐷𝑎𝑙𝑡𝑜𝑛. Teachers and students worship the ground I walk on. They all follow my lead... Except for ℎ𝑒𝑟.

I didn't think she'd have it in her to fight back. It's kind of adorable that she won't budge, refusing to break for me, to submit to my cruel desires. Except I'll never stop pushing for more. I'm ready to make her life so miserable, she'll be begging me to stop hurting her.

There's just one thing that's messing it all up.

Tinsley is off-f*cking-limits.


And I need to keep that in mind when I kiss my girlfriend... her best friend.


EVERYTHING she writes is supposed to be read cuz her books are PHENOMENAL. Doesn't matter whether is she Fawn, Isabella or Betti. I was stuck into the story from the first page. Betti placed her story on a solid base, and she remained loyal to the reality from cover to cover. We got a kind, cheeky heartwarming story. WildWood games are in the main line; Tins & Crispin’s relationship is a subplot. The story is full of twists and turns, Plenty of questions will be answered, although some of them remained unanswered. The plot can be tracked, smooth, easy to read.
Our main characters are Tinsley & Crispin; they are likable. Their feelings and despair are evident.  They are struggling. Tins wants to get rid of feelings of guilt. Crispin takes control.
We look back in time at the beginning of the story, and then it continues in the present. It’s necessary since we'll get a lot of responses to question later.
Crispin is King of Wildwood High, and Tinsley is the new girl. Crispin has a history with Tinsley, but will their future be common? Tension can be felt between them. But does it come from fear, guilt, or desire?
Tinsley Sullivan is a good-natured, kind and a little naive girl. You couldn' t not Iike her. Sometimes when things don’t work out the way she wants them to,  she'll try to do the right thing. I liked her, but I didn't always agree with her.
Crispin Dalton is the king of WildWood High, but I am pleasantly surprised at him. Of course, he can be a big asshole, but basically it's not his thing. He’s kind, attentive and gentle. He knows his own boundaries; he knows he wants things that he can't have. But what if he does?
I must also mention Tinsley's best friend, Estella, as she is also a key person in the story. Stells is an innocent, kind, willing and manipulative character. I hated her specifically.

Manipulation, false friendships and duplicitous people. One day at WildWood High High School. Where envy is a huge driving force(?). But who is jealous of; and the main question! Who will be the king?


𝑾𝒆'𝒓𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒈. 𝑷𝒓𝒊𝒗𝒊𝒍𝒆𝒈𝒆𝒅. 𝑫𝒊𝒓𝒕𝒚. 𝑨𝒏𝒅 𝒘𝒆 𝒓𝒖𝒊𝒏 𝒍𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒔 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒇𝒖𝒏.


                                                                                                                                           

Az első oldaltól kezdve beszippantott. Betti szilárd alapokra helyezte történetét, az első oldaltól az utolsóig hű maradt a valósághoz. Egy kedves, pimasz szívhez szóló sztorit kaptunk. Fő vonalon a Wildwood-i játszmák, mellékszálon Tins & Crispin kapcsolata.
Fordulatokban bővelkedik, rengeteg kérdésre kapunk választ, bár akadnak melyek megválaszolatlanok maradnak. A cselekmény végig követhető, gördülékeny, könnyen olvasható. 
Főszereplőink Tinsley & Crispin, könnyen szerethetőek, érzéseik, kétségbeesésük átérezhető. Őrlődnek, Tins szeretne megszabadulni a bűntudattól. Crispin kézbe veszi az irányítást. 
A történet elején visszatekintünk a múltba, majd a jelenben folytatódik. Erre szükség van, ez által a későbbiekben rengetek kérdésre kapunk választ. 
Crispin a Wildwood High királya, Tinsley pedig az új lány. Közös a múltjuk, de vajon a jövőjük is az lesz? A feszültség tapintható kettejük között. De vajon félelemből, bűntudatból vagy vágyból ered?
Tinsley Sullivan egy nagyon jóindulatú, kedves és kissé naiv lány. Nem lehet nem kedvelni. Még ha nem úgy alakulnak a dolgok ahogyan ő szeretné akkor is megpróbál helyesen cselekedni. Megkedveltem, bár nem mindig értettem egyet vele.
Crispin Dalton, ahhoz képest hogy ő a WildWood High királya, kellemesen csalódtam benne. Persze tud oltári nagy seggfej is lenni, de alapvetően nem ez mozgatja. Kedves, figyelmes és gyengéd. Ismeri saját határait, tudja hogy olyan dolgokra vágyik melyek nem lehetnek övé. De mi van ha mégis?
Említést kell tennem Tinsley legjobb barátnőjéről Estelláról is, mivel ő is egy kulcsfontosságú személy a történetben.  Stells egy ártatlan, kedves, akaratos és manipulatív karakter. Kifejezetten utáltam.

Manipuláció, hamis barátságok és kétszínű emberek. Egy nap a WildWood High középiskolában. Ahol az irigység hatalmas mozgatórugó. De vajon ki irigy kire, és a legfőbb kérdés! Kié lesz a király?

Excerpt

“Did you see how she fell?” A girl snickered.

“Serves her right,” another voice answered. “You read the articles, right?”

I stiffened, pulling my feet up onto the toilet so they wouldn’t know I was there.

“Yeah,” the first girl sighed. “Poor Crispin. That girl is bad news.”

“He should’ve done something worse to her,” the other girl agreed. “Like cut that braid off. He’d be doing her a favor, anyway. I mean, lilac hair? Really? What is this, 2009 at Coachella?”

I forced myself to bite back tears, waiting until they left the bathroom to exit. My face was red and blotchy, but I only had five minutes until the next class, and I couldn’t afford to be late, again.

I forced myself to bite back tears, waiting until they left the bathroom to exit. My face was red and blotchy, but I only had five minutes until the next class, and I couldn’t afford to be late, again.

Pushing open the door, I walked into the hallway, feeling every pair of eyes in the long space on me. I kept my head down, briskly walking toward the next class, when he called out to me.

“Hey, crybaby!”

The hallway was so quiet I could have heard a feather float. I tried to keep moving when he appeared in front of me.

“I was talking to you, Devin Mooney .”

I looked up into Crispin’s stupid storm-grey eyes, hating every second of our interaction.

Ugh, he was ridiculously handsome. How was this fair to the rest of us mortals? And why did he keep picking on me?

“Don’t call me that,” I muttered. “In fact, don’t call me fucking anything.”

“Crybaby?” He laughed. “I think I will, actually. Suits you, since you’re already crying on your first goddamn day. Which, let me remind you, could have been prevented.”

“Stay away from me, Crispin. I don’t need you.”

“Oh, poor little rich girl,” he smirked. “I think you and that mother of yours are the ones who need to stay the fuck away. I’m just giving you the option to make your life here better than the fucking nightmare you’re in store for if you don’t do as I say.”
