Facing The Enemy (The Enemy #1)

Facing The Enemy by M.E. Clayton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Emerson Andrews is no stranger to the dark side of life. Growing up in an abusive household, she endured a life of violence that ultimately led to the murder of her mother. However, she’s only a couple of months away from turning 18, so she’s got it covered. At least, she thought she did until her guilt ridden aunt comes and takes her in. Now, living miles away, where money is worshipped like a deity, she realizes she’s a far cry away from the trailer park she called home. 


Ramsey Reed wasn’t blinded by money, power or social standing, even though he had all three of those things in spades. He knew people with money were just as degenerate as people without it. The wealthy were just able to pay people to look the other way, while the poor could not. He was only 18-years-old, but he was already sick and tired of the people around him. They were nothing but tools he used for his entertainment, and he found himself not being entertained much these days. 

When Emerson shows up at a pre-school year party and meets Ramsey, their connection sparks a battle of wills so strong, neither is certain if they’ll be able to hold on to their sanity. And, yet, neither of them cared. 


I loved this book. It has all the good stuff. A hot rich Hero that runs the school, a heroine from the wrong side of the tracks that comes in and shakes things up by getting his attention away from the rich girls. He bullies her at first but then shows her his feelings for her.

He gets crazy jealous of other guys and misinterprets situations and tries to get back at her for being with other guys. It is quite a journey between these two people in a short time period but they have strong feelings for each other and his actions toward her set the stage for how the rest of the school will treat her. So when he starts to treat her bad, everyone in school does and it starts to get out of hand even though he is just trying to play a game with her.

I really liked the book and it was certainly steamy between the two main characters. Emerson was from an abusive background where her father abused her and her mother and ended up killing her mother. She likes the violence in Ramsey, who is a bit of a Sociopath. This is not your typical YA bully romance. More sex and violence.
