Blue by H.J. Bellus

Blue is a standalone novel by H.J. Bellus.  

Typically I see a book where the main character is a cheerleader and I run the other way but I’ve loved H.J. Bellus since I read the “That Girl” series so I decided to give this a try and I was not disappointed. 

This book had a good mix of angst, intrigue, and mystery. Blue Williams is a smart mouthed, strong willed cheer leader. On her first day at Preston University, she catches the eye of some college football players (Lane and his crew). Lane invites her to eat lunch with his group where she first sees Tuck. She instantly feels an attraction to the quiet withdrawn man.

Tuck is very quiet keeps to himself. He gives Blue very little of his time or attention (because he is afraid of a relationship). When he starts to let Blue in little by little his walls begin to crumble. This book contained many twists and turns.  

I read this book in one sitting because I could not put it down. If I had to criticize one thing about the book is that the ending felt very rushed. We spend the whole book waiting for something big to happen to Blue because we all know that someone is stalking her so something is going to happen and then in the last like 10% of the book something finally happens but then it’s over with no explanation and then all the sudden there is a short epilogue like 4 years in the future. 

Anyways – this book was awesome. Go out and buy it! 

Blue Williams shines no matter the circumstance.
-Prettiest in her hometown
-Most talented cheerleader on her high school squad
-Valedictorian of the senior class
-Prom queen and runner up for Miss Teen Colorado
And the list goes on…

That’s until college, when she finds out nobody recognizes her, and if they do they couldn’t care less. Blending in is something Blue has longed for her entire life. Living in a dorm with a set of new friends is just what she needed to escape her stale life back home. For the first time, she’s seen for her talent and not her name or looks.

Cheer is her number one priority, considering a full-ride scholarship landed her at a prestigious university, and she intends to take advantage of it. A true beauty inside and out, Blue’s heart has always pumped competitive blood.

Until one night changes her forever…the beauty is gone, and all she has left are nasty, ugly memories. The man who saved her has a story of his own, with ninety percent of his body scarred.

What happens when the Beauty falls for the Beast?
