Brielle Bishop is supposed to be a pawn in Royce Brayshaw’s plans for payback. That would work if she didn’t shake his world up five minutes after meeting him.
Okay, peeps, this book put me through the wringer. I laughed. I got pissed off. I cried my ever-loving eyes out. Royce has always been a mess, and his book could not be anything other than a love story of epic messy proportions. You love him, and you know he is going to eff it up from the start.
I didn’t understand the animosity between Royce and Bishop that sets up the plot, but you need to have some crisis to have a story. Still, I loved Brielle, and she is a unique character to this series, very different from the earlier heroines. It’s nice not having an in your face female. Something softer for the most in your face Brayshaw is a plus. But watching Royce fight himself while all the previous MCs pulled for him and tried to get him to disengage his head from his bottom was ironic.
Title: The Golden Boys (Kings of Cypress Prep #1) Author: Rachel Jonas & Nikki Thorne Genre: New Adult Bully Romance Release Date: 16 October 2020
West Golden—easy to hate, yet so hard to resist.
Don’t let that pretty face of his fool you. He isn’t the boy next door, or the kind you trust with your heart. He’s the devil in designer jeans, with all the charm of a bona fide psycho.
He swears I did something to cross him before I even stepped foot inside Cypress Prep, but it’s a lie. No one knows better than me that I’m all out of chances. One more misstep and I can kiss my future goodbye, which means I can’t possibly be guilty of whatever he thinks I’ve done.
West marks me with a target anyway, and as this town’s football star, no one dares to go against him. His money, status, and the loyalty of his equally entitled brothers makes him seem untouchable. Only, I know better than that.
This false god isn’t infallible like he wants the world to believe. Whenever I stare into those devilish green eyes, I see it plain as day. The chink in his armor. His one and only weakness.
The King of Cypress Prep has finally met his match and taking him down just became an inside job.
Title: No Good (Dayton High #2) Author: Stevie J. Cole & LP Lovell Genre: Enemies to Lovers Romance Release Date:15 October 2020
He was the reprobate king of Dayton high. I was the bitter princess cast out of my kingdom. And we were at war.
It started off with a lie, and a one-night stand gone terribly wrong. Although I knew nothing good would come from my encounter with Bellamy West, the small town’s gorgeous bad boy, I didn’t expect him to throw jet fuel onto the already flaming wreckage of my life. Then step back with a sexy smirk on his face to watch me burn.
And burn I did…
He got me fired.
I got him arrested.
We were enemies until we weren’t. Until one touch went too far, and I found myself craving each dirty word. Every filthy promise.
Bellamy West was no good, and I wanted to be bad.
Screw falling for Prince Charming, I wrote my love story with the villain.
Oh, man, I don’t know where to start here. This book’s plot is a solid bully romance, and their chemistry is rather good. However, this story’s beginning is a bit of a duck’s butt of weirdness in how it portrays “push and pull.” As a matter of fact, early Cole Travis comes across as a petty pre-pubescent rather than a sexy rock-god.
Monica has had a crappy experience with a crappy excuse for a human being. She’s scarred but trying to heal, and her new school has her latest crappy experience–a new bully. Just in time for the last crappy-excuse for a human to become a memory, another one is on her radar, but this one is hot, and she’s fascinated. Cole Travis is everywhere, and if she’s not looking at him, he’s looking at her.
