My Review of Bad Boy Blues by Saffron Kent

Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world – just one – and his name is Zachariah Prince. 
In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom. 
She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her dreams. 
It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she wants to stay as far away from him as possible. 
But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as Zach. 
Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

My Review
4 Stars
This is only the second book I've read by Saffron Kent but I really like her writing style. I always feel like there's so much more to the story than what lies on the surface. 
Cleo and Zach hate each other and have ever since elementary school. Zach is a typical rich, arrogant, asshole who pretty much makes life miserable for Cleo. He encourages his friends to bully her while he just sits back and takes it all in. Cleo may be poor but she's anything but weak, she gives as good as she gets and for me that's killer. I love a strong heroine and Cleo is no exception. Before graduation Zach takes off and no one really knows the reason why but three years later he's back and still remains the entitles prick he was three years ago. 
Cleo now works for "Master" Zach and his family as one of the million maids they have for their mansion. Naturally Cleo runs into Zach throughout her work day and the tension and angst build between the two of them. As the story progresses secrets slowly get revealed and by the end I realized that Cleo was truly the star of this story. No matter what life threw at her she continued to dust herself off and get back up again all on her own. 
Cleo and Zach's story was definitely a unique one and not your typical enemies to lovers romance. I look forward to reading more of Saffron Kent's books in the future!
 "I sigh, shaking my head. "Don't go around killing people because of me, okay? That's hardly a reason.:

His messy hair ruffles with a very rare breeze. "That's the only reason there can be for me: you."
