Degrade by T.L. Smith

One rule, only one rule women need to follow when they're with me.
Don’t ask for more.
This rule is in place for a reason, you won't get more of what’s not there to give.

He is striking, and he's all man. He is also the devil, or so I believe him to be. I gave him my heart, not realizing I was doing so.He likes to break me down, so I'm a shell of the person I once was. He's chipping away at me, bit by bit. Though I’m not as weak as he thinks, and when I can’t handle it anymore, I will come back swinging.

I received a ARC from the author in exchange for a honest review.
3.5* read.
This is a difficult review for me to write as although i started to enjoy it after about the first 45% the first half i didn't enjoy at all, mainly because i couldn't connect with the characters. I hated Zeke so much, he was everything i hate in a male lead in my books. The title of the book certainly fits with him as that's what he did, he degraded her till it got to the point i didn't want to read anymore. As for Bexley well she was such a push over that i couldn't connect with her either. I like my female lead to be strong and feisty and she was just a doormat. That been said I'm so glad i stuck with it as after the first half i really enjoyed it and connected with the characters more and i realized that the first half of the book had to happen like that for the rest of the story to go the way it did but in a way i just could't get past it.
Like i say I'm still mixed up and up in the air with this book but i'll defiantly purchase more from this author in the future.



I’m an idiot, I know this. I just can’t help myself. When it comes to him, I do as he says, do as he pleases. Even if it’s against everything, I believe in. He has a hold on me, which no other person has ever held. I don’t believe he loves me, but I love him. So that has to count for something? Right? My love is big enough. I believe it can hold onto both of us and wrap us up in a vice grip. See, I did tell you, I’m an idiot.
