Author: Bella Jewel
Release Date: November 25, 2014
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.
*This is part of a two book series and it will contain a HEA – Readers over 18+

I really liked this first installment of Til Death! I think that this is one of those books you will either love or hate, mainly because the characters will either irritate and annoy you or fascinate you. I was fascinated right from page one, and while Marcus may come of as a monster, and Katia too naïve….I’ve read male leads and female leads that are alot worse. 4 stars.
Marcus Tandem lives for one thing...business, any hook-ups with women are strictly for pleasure…they mean nothing. When his grandfather dies, he is shocked that his grandfather leaves a stipulation in his will that in order for Marcus to take over the business (which Marcus has been running) he must find a wife.
Katia’s social life pretty much doesn’t exist. She doesn’t date, she rarely gets out with her friends…she works long hours to pay the bills to help care for her ailing mother. When she meets Marcus, he instantly seduces her. She expects a one night stand, she is surprised when she is swept off her feet and falls hard. Little does Katia know Marcus’s intentions aren’t honorable, he doesn’t return her love…he is a hard man, and Katia is the perfect candidate for the marriage of convenience that he needs.
I devoured this book in one sitting. I sat through the entire book with my heart in my throat anxiously flipping through the pages. I loved all the twists and turns, the flashbacks, and the fact the Marcus started to actually feel something! I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2. Bella Jewel is quickly turning into one of my favorite authors!
