1) Strong FMC. Lips (fmc) is fierce but retains her soul. I have never read a fmc as well put together as her. She is the warrior in this series. While she has been through so much she retains her heart and soul and most impressively, her self-esteem. She is relatable, human, loyal, brave, strong. I want to meet this person so bad, heck...I want to be this person. If you prefer a strong female h who can handle her own, I think you'll be hard pressed to find a character who does it more realistically. This first book has quite a bit of the "bullying" but unlike other books with that plot line, it never feels miserable to the reader and that my friends is all due to our bad@$$ fmc Lips! She is so cool and collected. It's not that the bullying doesn't bother her, its that she has experienced and overcome so many worse obstacles that honestly the bullying comes off as more of a nuisance than anything. It never rocks her confidence or self-esteem and therefore as an invested reader, it never rocked mine. Thank you J. Bree for showing us such a mature character going through this tough situation.
2) Slow build for the relationships. I've come to realize about myself that I prefer a slow build with lots of heat and steam and plenty of character and relationship building as opposed to a fast burn/rush to the smexy times. Don't get me wrong, I want sexy times and I want them to be super hot when they happen and J. Bree handled this aspect beautifully. Book one doesn't technically have smexy times but the heat and steam is there in spades and frankly the characters are so darn fascinating that you don't even miss it. You can tell when we get to that stuff it will be worth the wait and having read all four books I can promise you the sexy times will rock your world, all the more so because we took the time to really get to know these characters. This was the best build I have ever read. Hands down.
3) The H's (male characters), too often authors are making two big mistakes when writing the male characters, the first being that they have too many of them. This is just my opinion but my perfect number of guys for an RH is three (four tops), that's primarily because I don't want there to be favoritism and I want to know every guy is getting plenty of time with the fmc and when it gets to be too many guys that just doesn't make sense to me, and the second issue is when some of the male characters aren't well fleshed out as truly different characters with different personalities, in which case they start to blur and you don't know why they are there. J. Bree nailed the H's. Harley, Blaise and Ash were so different and their relationship pace with Lips was on different timelines and had very different obstacles to be overcome but at the same time these three guys were a tight group of chosen "brothers" and you can totally see how Lips fits with them and it's not implausible that they would choose to share this relationship.
4) This is totally a personal preference but there is no M/M in this series. I've noticed that cropping up in more and more RH books lately and I get why but that doesn't particularly do it for me. I want the relationships to be completely focused on the fmc and that's how it is in this series.
I've read this entire series and am going on record as saying book 2 is my favorite (the redemption is sooo sweet) so I'm going to finish off this review of book one and pick up the review on book two.
Anyone who hasn't started this series is so lucky because this phenomenal series is complete (actually I hope its not complete, and J. Bree decides to take us into the college and early adult years, because I will never be done with these characters), but it's complete for now. You have a full four book series to read so you won't experience any of the heartache and stress from waiting months for "the next book" to release. Start this series now, prepare to experience a game changer in the romance and RH realm.
Another interesting thing is that I usually hate violence towards women, I hate every part of it, but this heroine is so strongly built that I can gent through the violent parts towards her as I feel her strenght and I adore her... It is such a rare occasion, that I need to think twice while writing these words... the FMC is the best I’ve encountered so far..
This is another book after cruel intentions (Siobhàn Davis) and War (Laura Thalassa) I tried to read slowly..
*spoiler - I could not do it..so I read it quick... too fast for my liking..
I do not know if this book is RH, but this is the first one I do not feel forced upon as this kind of relationship is okay, and actually I love all of the guys, which is still a surprising fact for me. I adore them all three, but Harley is my favourite.. I hope that there will not be RH in real, but I still love the book and am eager for the next one!!!
I am still reading the book and Lips is amazing.. so amazing, I want to be near her. Avery is also a perfect add to the mix!!
This book surprised me.
Even the world building waffles. The school has zero tolerance for fighting\drinking and enforced single sex flooring but blindly ignores the host of kids bloodied or literally murdered, the drink\drug parties on the property and boys going to the girls floor\rooms whenever. The idea is that wealth buys that blindness but even if the students have a pecking order, no way the wealthy parents are not on this super prestigious school demanding to know why their kids are bullied \blooded\murdered or had nudes being passed around with or without their consent because that is the kind of thing that reflects badly on them.
I also wish the Jackal was a benevolent, ride or die friend\family member instead of yet another bad because it distracts from the story so much. I will check out the second book because the last chapter renewed my interest somewhat but from this book alone I wouldn't recommend the series.

Neighbours Stone and Dare it was hate at first site and they did anything to stir up that hate.
But like anything hate and love is a fine line and when it is crossed these two where just perfect for each other.
Totally loved it.
Can i just say that i was pleasantly surprised how much i loved this book, as i am not really into reading about 15/16 years old in a dark romance even though it was a bully story.
This kept me turning the pages with all the secretes, lies, intrigue and suspense through out.
I now can't wait for the next instalment as it will be a year on.
There is the perfect formula: girl from foster care gets in to a posh prep school through academic brilliance and then gets bullied but is a badass all the way through! If i say some of the good stuff which happens towards the end then it'd be a spoiler but basically she gets a bestie and their relationship is one of the best things to ever happen to her and gives us readers all the feels! Also there are hot guys (let's just ignore the fact they are 15 when she starts there). You won't be sorry continuing this series if you like the reverse harem, (light) bully romance genre.
What a fantastic start to this series, I am honestly so intrigued by every single character we’ve come across so far.
Lips is just absolutely everything, she’s so strong and powerful but everyone completely underestimates her because of where she’s from. I feel like we’re sharing the secret with Lips as to what she can do and who she is, I can’t wait for the reactions when it all unfolds!
We meet Ash, Harley and Blaise who you can tell are drawn to Lips, as much as they hate it. Right now Harley is my favourite as he’s protecting Lips even if he doesn’t fully like her.
Avery I am SO intrigued by, the stuff she’s done to Lips should make me hate her but I just don’t, which has shocked and confused me but I can just see there’s a lot more there than meets the eye, she’s ruthless.
I am going to download the next book immediately because I am caught hook line and sinker! So good!
