Overview

From USA Today Bestselling Author.

They say there's a fine line between love and hate.

There is.

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.

****BEWARE: CLIFFHANGER. It should be required to disclose that in the overview. Besides the cliffhanger, this book sucked. The heroine was a needy, insecure doormat and the "hero" was a lying douchebag. Come on, there is nothing this author can do to redeem this guy in my eyes. Please tell me there is a new hero in the next book. Please. Don't bother with this drivel.

I'm just so tired of authors who can't write a whole book but have to do it in parts and leave cliffhangers. If it's money, charge more but complete the damn book already. I like this author a lot but why keep us waiting???It's not fair and it's very annoying!

Thank you to the reviewer who warned me that this is a cliff-hanger, since obviously the blurb did not!  Why do so many authors lately, feel they have to sell a book in parts they drag out?!  I am so disappointed in Bella Jewel, who has up until now been one of my favorites!  Will read this one, but not until the conclusion is available!

This story is great but and it is a big but.....I am really getting tired of authors not writing the whole book and breaking it up into parts....I could see doing this if the book was 400 pages or more but when the book is less than 130 pages....really come on authors...I love this authors books and have all of them..and this is going to be another great one

4.5 Stars Oh my! This book was engaging from page one to the very last.. You'd think Katia would be an annoying as hell character, but truthfully she was one of the best female leads I've read! The only thing I didn't like about her, that frustrated me to no end was the fact that she suffered from 'head in the sand' syndrome! Oh and she tended to run from every uncomfortable situation she found herself in. I thought she was a fun loving, positive person, whom loved unconditionally and her only mistake was falling for Marcus and putting up with his hot and cold attitude. She was so focused and blinded by her love for him that she missed all the obvious signs that something was terribly wrong with not only Marcus but their marriage as well. She wasn't stupid, she was just gullible, a fool in love and his betrayal is going to bring out the monster in her! FYI: Some may say this ended with a cliffhanger, to some extent I guess it did, but its a comfortable cliffhanger, Marcus and Katia's relationship is told from its beginning through its marriage up to its betrayal...all we have to wait for is how Katia is going to get her sweet, sweet and well deserved revenge...which is too bad because at the end of the day Marcus wasn't all that bad...

The book is only 126 pages and has a cliffhanger. I really wish that they would write that in the description. It's not really fair to the readers. The book overall was good. It did feel prettty rushed though. I really like Katia but Marcus was a little to emotionless. I hope that changes in the next book.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ Stars This is the first book in a two book series by Bella Jewel.  It involves a man that is driven by ambition and is totally devoid of emotions. A man that does whatever needs to be done to get what he wants! When he is given an ultimatum in his grandfather’s will, get married or you will be disinherited and loose the family company, he plans how to do whatever he has to do.  How hard can it be to find an unsuspecting woman and convince her to marry him? Nothing ever turns out as planned though and this is that story! Katia is a beautiful, loving woman that always takes care of those she loves.  She works hard to care for her sick mother and to provide for all her needs even if means working herself to death.  Her boss is a terror and a bully that takes of Katia’s situation by overworking her and underpaying her.  When she stumbles into an Adonis at a friend’s birthday party, she feels like she has been struck by a MAX truck. When Marcus accidentally bumps into Katia he knows that she is the answer to his problem.  She is perfect one to solve his problem with his grandfather’s will.  Katia is educated, beautiful and he is attracted to her so it should not be a problem.  He can give up his playboy ways for a while and fulfill the demands of the will. All Marcus has to do is convince her that he is in love with her, keep her happy and then business as usual.  What could possibly go wrong? Hero: Marcus Tandem 4.5 stars Heroine: Katia 4.5 stars Plot:  4.5 stars Steam Level:  4.5 stars Cliffhanger:  Yes Would I recommend this book: Yes! This is a love story that starts out for all the wrong reasons and yet appears perfectly normal.  The hero is steaming hot and the heroine falls deeply in love with him.    Would I recommend this author: Yes! I have yet to read anything that Bella Jewel writes that I have not enjoyed!  Her characters are amazingly real and her plot is well thought out and well developed.  You will not be disappointed with this author’s work. ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

'Til Death by Bella Jewel is the first book in her new series also titled 'Til Death. In this first installment we meet Marcus and Katia. From the dual POV's we know that Marcus is being coerced into marrying by his recently deceased grandfather via his grandfather's last will & testament. We know all about the why's of what he is doing and it makes it kinda hard to truly HATE him. Dislike? Sure, but not HATE. "Marcus," I breathe. "You're destroying me. You're taking everything I am and twisting it. You're... ruining me." "I know, precious," he whispers.~ Katia Katia falls passionately in love with Marcus but not right away. She doesn't buy into his money and unlike every other woman he's been with, she doesn't lick his boots and acquiesce to his every wish. He definitely has to work for her affections. This makes it hard to be frustrated with her for falling for his BS as he works hard to win her hand in marriage. He really wants his grandfathers company to be signed over to him and NOT Walter, the man currently in charge on paper. Marcus cannot remain closed off forever and Katia will eventually realize he is just putting on a show. The closer she gets to giving up on him, the more he begins to have feelings for this woman he married. He never intended for her to be hurt and truly believed that he was doing her a favor. He made life easier for her and her sick mother, and while he is using her, he is not deliberately cruel (usually). His walls begin to break down... I realize, with sudden clarity, that Marcus Tandem is making love to me.~ Katia It's a shame that life doesn't stay on an upswing. Bad things happen and despite the change in dynamics between the two of them, the secret of Marcus' reasoning behind getting married is revealed to Katia and things go from bad to worse. "You don't f*^#ing see it, do you, Mack? Even I can see it so clearly now." "See What?" I turn and stare at the empty space, the space where my wife was standing only five minutes ago as I ripped her world apart. "She was everything."~ Marcus

I don't even know where to start with this review!!! SPEECHLESS!!! So where to start!!! Oh yeah my Vajayjay is being fanned as I type lol!! This book is smoking hot! This is my first read by this author and Let me say I AM A FAN!!!! Nothing about this book is boring. I am in love with the way this book was written. It's so easy to get sucked up into the story. The characters are all amazing every single one of them. This story gives you drama, love, sex ,crime and heartbreak. It's a bundle of emotions. I hurt so much for Katia. She deserved someone to love her back. Yes, at some points she seems weak but let's be honest love will do that to you. She loves hard and I think that's her mistake. But with a hot piece of man like Marcus, what is she supposed to do. She never had a chance. Marcus is one hot Alpha. He knows what he wants and does what he has to to get it. He has no problem lying to get who or what he wants. This man is hot in all the right places. Jesus!! Those sex scenes are hot! But yet he is dark. He holds secrets and he isn't a good guy. This book will hold you captive till the end. The turn of events in this book are just WOW! Oh god but that cliff hanger... It's going to kill me till the next book comes out.. Let me say I can't wait for Katia!!!

Loved this book.....hate having to wait for part two! I normally don't do reviews because I don't want to give anything away but this was a great read! If part two isn't available in the timeframe promised I will be very disappointed! Only four stars because of the cliffhanger ending.

~Received For An Honest Review~ Not sure where to start here. Omg Bella Jewel knew what she was doing when she wrote this book! This book left me pondering everything. It's emotional. It will take you on many different limbs with your emotions. It hot! It's a MUST read!

You will either love or hate this book. It is a 2 part book. With that being said, Marcus and Katie are to say the least, complicated. This is not going to be your run of the mill love story. It is going to gut you and not put you back together in this book. I am hoping against hope that it will in the next book. I have always been a big fan of Bella Jewel, but this tops anything I've ever read by her. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I will just say, please read, but make sure you don't have kids or anything else to take care of because you are not going to want or be able to put this book down.

I am trying to find the words to express how I feel about 'Til Death. Holy freaking story. It was epic. Twisted. Raw. Erotic. Painful. I'm still reeling from it. I really liked Katia. She was fun, sweet, loyal and hardworking. She gives her heart and soul to Marcus - but it was not done freely. He had to earn it her affection and even though you know better, you hope he's secretly as smitten with Katia as you the reader are. Marcus is a seriously hot and delicious character but he's a cold, hard business man at his core. You know all along what the deal is. There is no surprise twist to Marcus's motivation. It's right there in black and white. He's an asshat who wants what he wants regardless of the damage it causes. His actions will gut you. Stab you in the heart. And you'll still want more. 'Til Death is an all consuming story that I loved. With each book I read from Bella Jewel, I become more impressed with her characters, her plots and her writing style. I cannot wait to read the conclusion and see what else she has in store for Marcus and Katia.

This book is freakin awesome! I loved every bit of it. I was enthralled right from the beginning. Katia is a beautiful strong woman that lives her life as frugally as possible so that she can take care of her mother and give her everything she needs. Then she meets Marcus. He's a strong gorgeous alpha male who has no emotional attatachment to anything except his grandfathers business. According to his grandfathers will he has to marry within one year or the business goes to another man. He meets Katia and after dating her a few months he marries her and even though the sex between them is off the charts smokin hot, he has no feelings for her what so ever. She is simply his toy even though she falls deeper and deeper in love with him everyday, he feels nothing. Until the day comes when she finds out why he never tells her he loves her or calls her pet names or gets jealous. And then he shatteres her into a million pieces. I cried so hardvfor Katia I could feel her pain coming off the pages. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

HOLY SH*T that book was intense! The plot was sexy and fast paced. This is the first book of Bella Jewel's that I read and it was worth the $2.99. I like how it ends in a cliffhanger; can't wait to read the next and last installment in this series.

First off I love all of Bella Jewels books they are all amazing. She is an amazing author and keeps you drawn into the story. You come to meet Katia who you just have to love. She is the friend everyone wants to have. She is a little naive when it comes to Marcus her husband (I'll get to him shortly). She knows she has given her heart to a douchebag but she just can't seem to let him go. She love hard and fights harder. She is strong and weak at the same time. She is strong in the fact that she sees what needs to be done, also in her fight for her loved ones. Weak because she might not always do what she knows needs to be done. Old Marcus boy the charmer but much too soon becomes the jerk of all jerks. You're never sure if you want to beat him or love him. Lots of mystery behind him and why he makes the choices he makes. This is one book that is going to have you scream WHY!!! This one keeps me turning that pages and one that I could not put down.

Excellent book in an incredible two book series!  'Til Death - Part 1 by Bella Jewel is one fantastic book - she is a brand new author for me and her storytelling skills are outstanding! The story of heroine Katia and hero Marcus's relationship is such a roller coaster ride - the reader does not want it to end. Definitely enjoyed the secondary characters and their interactions with the main characters. No spoilers from me, but the twists and turns plus several little white lies keeps the reader trying to guess what was going to happen next. So happy that 'Til Death - Part 2 is available because I will start reading it ASAP! Looking forward to reading more series by this author...she rocks!
