REVIEW ➼ Like You Hurt by Kaydence Snow



What kind of idiot gets on my bad side on his first day at my school? Hendrix Hawthorn is arrogant, cocky, infuriatingly attractive and clearly doesn’t realise I can make his life hell.

Which is exactly what I intend to do… until he shows up in the one place no one knows I go to – the one place that makes me feel alive. Now my reputation is in his hands, but I’ll be damned if I go down without a fight.


What kind of spoiled brat thinks I’ll just fall at her feet like the rest of these jerks? Donna Mead is a stone-cold bitch and I don’t want anything to do with her or her friends.

It’s bad enough I have to finish senior year at Fulton Academy – exactly the kind of place where I made the single biggest mistake of my life. I just want to keep my head down, get decent grades… until she shows up where she doesn’t belong. Now I can’t seem to stop myself from trying to prevent Donna from ruining her life like I did.

Donna Mead was a fucking force of nature, and if I wasn’t careful, I had a feeling she would knock me to my knees like a goddamn landslide.


Donna and Hendrix destroyed me in the best way possible. I loved these two. They are two broken people who find comfort in one another.

Donna has a loving family, a great group of friends, a future all planned out and she rules Fulton Academy. However, she is also a living another life. A life that no one else in her close circle knows about. I loved her, even though she frustrated me at times. You can’t help but love her and want her to be happy throughout the story. Hendrix is new to Fulton Academy. He isn’t there to make friends. He just wants to get good grades and fly under the radar, unfortunately that doesn’t happen the moment Donna and her crew spot him. Hendrix’s past is heartbreaking, I felt for him and can’t even begin to imagine what he must feel. He see’s something in Donna, he see’s glimpses of his old life and wants to help her, he wants to save her from herself.

I loved the chemistry and the tension between Donna and Hendrix from the start. You could feel the energy between them jumping off the pages. They were addicting and it was hard to turn away. They way that Hendrix tries to help Donna is amazing. You can see how caring he is and how much he has changed as a person from his old life.

Like You Hurt is an angst filled, emotional romance. This book will completely suck you in and you won’t be able to look away. A MUST READ!
