They say there's a fine line between love and hate.
I married a douchebag.
I didn't know it at the time.
He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.
I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.
Then he left me high and dry.
Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.
He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.
I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.
I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.
With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.
Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.
I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.
He has to pay.
And pay he will.

Review by Michelle:
Bella Jewel always has a way of drawing you in. From the very first page until the very end and even beyond, she knows exactly how to keep you glued to the pages and consumed by the story. I was fascinated by the blurb for 'Til Death, hooked by the prologue, and dumfounded by the ending. I was utterly addicted by the man, the story, and the steam. The worst kind of torture? I am now at a loss as to what to do with myself while waiting breathlessly for the continuation.
Marcus is just as deceitful, detached, despicable, charming, and seductive as promised and yet he is also alarmingly consuming, undeniably alluring, and inexplicably captivating. Incomprehensibly I found myself on his side at times, drawn to him despite his actions, and rooting for the marriage.
Katia is a much more complex character than meets the eye. She is super sassy and just quirky and cute enough so as not to be too sweet, annoying, or over the top. She also has the uncanny ability to get herself into some surprisingly humorous situations while still being a strong, confident, independent woman. You will undoubtedly simultaneously question how she could be so naive and so hopelessly in love with Marcus to stick around through thick and thin and feel pity and heartbreak for this strong, beautiful woman who didn't seem to stand a chance against his wooing, cunning, and charm.
While I know there are a lot of readers out there that are not big on the alternation of past and present tenses in a story, I just love the back and forth, and the way in which it is executed in 'Til Death is total perfection. In this case we are slowly and carefully fed bits and pieces of the back story while being fully and completely immersed and engrossed by the here and now making for an enthralling and thrilling experience.
On top of a mysteriously mesmerizing male character, an intriguing plot, and the ache that is created to consume each word of this story as quickly as possible there is a nice twist thrown into the mix that has the potential to be quite the game changer.
This quick read packs a punch with every word. 'Til Death is seriously steamy, completely addicting, and terribly suspenseful. I encourage Bella Jewel to deliver the next installment as soon as possible or I have a feeling there will be a whole new slew of stalkers knocking on her door just begging for more.
