She knew being the new girl at Wildwood would never be easy, considering who she is. But nobody warned Tinsley Sullivan we’d be doing everything in our power to make her high school experience one of the most horrible times of her life.

They say my name like I’m their king. πΆπ‘Ÿπ‘–π‘ π‘π‘–π‘› π·π‘Žπ‘™π‘‘π‘œπ‘›. Teachers and students worship the ground I walk on. They all follow my lead… Except for β„Žπ‘’π‘Ÿ.

I didn’t think she’d have it in her to fight back. It’s kind of adorable that she won’t budge, refusing to break for me, to submit to my cruel desires. Except I’ll never stop pushing for more. I’m ready to make her life so miserable, she’ll be begging me to stop hurting her.

There’s just one thing that’s messing it all up.

Tinsley is off-f*cking-limits.

And I need to keep that in mind when I kiss my girlfriend… her best friend.

We all know that I love bully romances. Like, love them! So when I saw this was coming out I knew I wanted it. I mean, look at that cover! However, it didn’t live up to all my expectations. I did have some issues with the characters and with this being a character based book, my rating had to drop.

I loved the setting of the super fancy prep school. Because let’s be honest, teenagers with too much money are the worst and make the best characters to read about lol!! I love that there are secrets that we don’t know about yet. Mysteries and missing people are making me so anxious for the next book.

Moving on to the characters. Let’s start with Tinsley. I really did like her, but MAN was this girl naive! She refused to see peoples true colors and that’s so aggravating. It’s like I wanted the best for her but she wasn’t making it easy. Crispin was hard to like in the beginning, I can’t lie about that. However, this guy grew on me. If we didn’t have dual POV, I would probably still not like him honestly. I’m glad we got to see his thoughts and see how that bully brain was working.

Estella, our villain. I know we are supposed to dislike her, and I do. Don’t get me wrong about that. However, I feel like she was a bland one-dimensional villain. She fell flat and was a typical villain.Β (how many times can I say, villain?)Β Her book is next and I’m curious to see how the author makes us cheer for her.

The romance between Tinsley and Crispin was full of angst and steam. I enjoyed reading about the push and pull between these two. That is my favorite part about a bully romance and I feel like the author did a really good job at that.Β 

All in all, I did enjoy this even though I had issues with it. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series and If you enjoy bully romances I would give this a try.3 Star Rating✨I received an ARC via the author for an honest review.Β Quotes were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publication.

  1. Hey OOOO to this cover lol!!! My favorite line in your review is “Because let’s be honest, teenagers with too much money are the worst and make the best characters to read about”. It’s so true lol!!! I really want to read the Elite series by Rachel Van Dyken and Fallen Crest High by Tijan. Have you read either of those?
