Over all its not a completely bad story and could have been better. (less)
Five Carter brothers come to Harlow's side to protect her. However with Malik, she has captured the heart of of the brother who does not date. Malik feels like Harlow is his light in a world of dark. He has had a lot of pain in his own life, that only his brothers share. Now he has found a reason for hope, Harlow.
This is a story that broke my heart. The bullying is front and center in the story. Harlow is trying to adjust to life without her parents and this is just another hit she can't deal with. Malik is a wonderful hero, he is intense but his love for Harlow shines bright. Loved all the characters and cannot wait for more. His brother Max is quite the bad boy, look forward to his story in particular.
One thing I would like to ask the author to do, if she reads these.....more of the male MC voice. That one little chapter was a mean tease. You gave him a good voice, and I'm sad we didn't get to experience him first hand earlier and throughout the whole book. Not that this didn't work. I just prefer dual POV because I feel both characters in the story. That's not to say I wasn't feeling Malik, because I most certainly was feeling Malik and Mason and Myles, and Maverick, and let us not forget Max.

The book had definite elements that reminded me of the Slater brother series by L.A. Casey, but that series is so much better.
Top reviews from other countries
For something set in England there were too many americanisms throughout, from reading other review it does seem like the author has changed some things there was still so much that made it annoying.
I felt a lot of the observation on situations were being told in long internal monologues instead of The reader uncovering I formation.
The bullying is unrealistic and way too extreme for no real reason.
The main characters seem to have fluctuating personality traits that conflict with themselves.
Using rape as the ultimate bullying tool didn't sit well with me.
Furthermore, the book was far too long with not much happening from chapter to chapter and it ended with a lot of loose ends; such as Harlow's old best friend, Davis's older brother never showing up and and the random plot twist including a teacher and the principle's daughter. The book had a generic storyline but a lot longer than others which made it difficult for me as the reader to keep involved with the story. Therefore i wouldn't buy the rest of the series and plan on selling my paperback version.
Around 70% through the book I found I loved the whole dynamic of the two families living next door becoming one, sparking Denny and Masons story had me gripped.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book, but I am excited to see how the family story grows.
Revolting slut shaming, stalking and high school bullying (that I hope is entirely unrealistic). Issue of rape as part of the plot. Really struggled in my re-read.
