Synopsis
Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world -- just one -- and his name is Zachariah Prince.
In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom. 
She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her dreams. 
It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she wants to stay as far away from him as possible. 
But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as Zach. 
Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

BAD BOY BLUES: 
Is a full length, New Adult, stand-alone novel by Saffron A. Kent.

Even though this one had a lot of mixed reviews I was excited once it landed on my kindle release day, life went on hold. This was well worth the money, a full length romance novel that threw out all the feels, this book was more than I expected, the characters had so many layers to them. 

Lately I’ve been binge reading bad boy bullies and this was right up my alley. It all started back when they were so young. Zachariah Prince aka Zach was twelve and she was ten, it was in grade school when it all started by the pulling of her pigtails, right up till highschool where he still managed to make her life a living hell. My hatred for him was so strong that I never paid attention to anything below the surface. 

The thing with Cleo is that no matter what came her way, she never took it sitting down, she fought back tooth and nail. And because of all the bullying she despises him with a vengeance and has done so for more than a decade. When girls my age were falling in love with cute boys, I was falling in hate with Zach.

The bullying, the ridicule, it wasn’t until they were older that they were both made accountable for their actions.

For me the pace between the two characters was perfect, the banter, the swoony moments, the angst, were implemented perfectly. 

These two came from different worlds, his family lived on the south side where all the rich people resided, sitting in their mansions surrounded by butlers and maids looking down on their minions. She was born on the other side of the divided line. The north side where the people don't have a lot of money.

After graduation he abruptly with no word to anyone leaves town never to look back and she goes and works as a maid up in the mansion for his family. College wasn't an option for Cleo. 

Life was okish UNTIL he comes back. Now she lives where he lives. 

She lives here too, the girl with the blue hair. The girl who bore the brunt of all my hatred and who I haven't stopped thinking about since I saw her the first time when I was twelve. 

We slowly learn why he was the way he was towards Cleo, he has so many layers to him, such a complex character that had many flaws but delve deeper and like most he just wanted someone to give a damn, the misunderstood bad boy.
