Bully No More

“Bully No More” is a story about overcoming a past and falling in love. Sam Crescent did a good job with this story because the issue she deals with is a bit controversial. Why? Because bullying is an ugly thing that leaves often permanent marks on person who is bullied and what Sam Crescent did is that she took a reformed bully and the person he bullied and brought them together. The final result was a very sensual love story.

“Bully No More” is an interesting, fast paced story that I read in one sitting. But on the other hand not much is going on i.e. the plot is very simple and it mostly revolves around this fine and fragile dance between Kim and Kurt. The whole story would be so much better if only the author explained a bit more why Kurt was so mean to Kim in the first place and then why he decided to stop. This change in Kurt’s behavior was a bit too sudden and confusing. I didn’t particularly like Kurt, because although he was not bullying Kim anymore and ten years passed since that time he was a bit pushy and very open toward her when they meet again. I found his boldness annoying. But when these flaws are put aside “Bully No More” is a fun read.
