[ARC Review] Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

Grace wants out. Out of her house, where her stepfather wields fear like a weapon and her mother makes her scrub imaginary dirt off the floors. Out of her California town, too small to contain her big city dreams. Out of her life, and into the role of Parisian artist, New York director—anything but scared and alone.

Enter Gavin: charming, talented, adored. Controlling. Dangerous. When Grace and Gavin fall in love, Grace is sure it's too good to be true. She has no idea their relationship will become a prison she's unable to escape. 

Deeply affecting and unflinchingly honest, this is a story about spiraling into darkness—and emerging into the light again.


I read Bad Romance in one day. I haven't read a book that was so real and raw in a loooong time. I'm still finding trouble finding the right words to describe how moving this story was. This was a tough read because it dealt with so many real things such as abuse, pregnancy, cheating, and more. I haven't read a book that dealt with all these topics in a single book and to have it described so raw and real as this one. 

It's unapologetically real and eye opening. I believe YA contemporaries have the chance to teach readers something and Bad Romance has done just that. The fact that this book embodies a song and it's meaning is worthwhile. 

I was moved by this story and I believe everyone, if you're in a relationship or not, can learn something from this novel.

Overall I would give Bad Romance 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
