I’m Blake McQueen, daughter of Miles McQueen: businessman, politician, all around upstanding member of the community.

I’m told that name means something, but well, I’ve pretty much doused it in petrol, set it on fire, and taken a shit on it for good measure. I like to think of myself as a walking middle finger.

My name is now synonymous with booze, parties, sex, and drug

::::: Unpopular opinion alert!! :::::

This was my forth book by this author and despite the fact this one was a total bust for me, I know it won’t be my last. I like this author’s writing style and I enjoyed her other books, but sadly “High” didn’t work for me at all. Since I’m in minority with my opinion I think this was a clear case of it’s not you, it’s me. That being said, I have to say I truly wanted and also tried to enjoy this story especially since this book started out so s

Wow! What a great read! I'd read Absolution by the Stevie J Cole and LP Lovell duo and vowed that I'd try both of these authors in their own distinct works. Now I see where the humor came from in Absolution.

High is the story of a young Blake McQueen, the daughter of high ranking Minister of Justice in England. Everything is about appearances for her parents and Blake has long lost her feeling of family loyalty where they are concerned. So she instead throws all cautio
3 Stars!
I liked this book but sadly I didn't ever feel the connection between Blake and Rhett. Things between them happened too fast.

Blake has awful parents. They only show her attention when she misbehaves and threatens to ruin their image. Blake could care less. After her father pushes her to marry a man just for the connections Blake goes about to piss her parents off. She does everything and anything she wants. She gets high, drunk and often wakes up in places she has no idea how she got th

Here's what I was thinking the ENTIRE time while reading this book:


Somehow, someway, I liked this book. I'm still not sure why. It could be because I tend to like the work that LP Lovell produces. Maybe it's because Blake's character embraced life in a way I never did or ever will, and in a way that though I don't condone it, I can appreciate. It could be because... I really don't know.

What I do know is that if it were up to Blake's character alone I wouldn't have enjoyed this book. I didn't lik

Did I read the same book as everyone else?
Such a shallow story :(
Blake is a cold bitch and I couldn't warm up or empathize with her at all.
I am feeling like a freaking weirdo right now. It's a rain of 5 Stars rates and a few 4.

Glad it was free on KU


3 "i don't dig the shit you pull" stars

And basically that was the highlight of this story for me, i m giving 3 stars simply cause i LOVE Lauren's writing style and i loved all her other books I have read so far BUT here, I had major issues with both, the heroine and the actual heroine, well cocaine, to be precise. If the heroine's 'fuck you all' attitude is presented as a constant 'teatrical acting out' of consumating cocaine and being hammered while fucking your life away through parties,

Excellent writing and engaging storyline! I was very excited about this book. I wasn't disappointed. It was refreshing with flawed characters and gripping plot!
Blake is a trust fund baby. She has everything one could wish for...except one thing; love.
Her parents always judge her and she is labelled as the family's embarrassment. So, she does everything she can to anger her parents. She is a wild one. She parties, she does drugs and doesn't

Ahhhhh this was my first LP Lovell solo and I loved it.
I'm not giving it 5 stars, simply because I felt the ending a little rushed, and that kinda pissed me off because I would have liked to read more about these characters. I freaking love Blake & Rhett.

I'm dying for a Milly's, Luca's or Felix's book. So please, can I have another book?

I'm definitely reading more LP Lovell material.

What a fabulous read.
I have stepped out of my dark comfort zone of late and having loved the last dark delight brought to us by LP & her partner in delicious crime Stevie, I decided to sign up for this one.

One page in and I had a good laugh ... "a badger's arsehole." is the new insult in our house, I totally claimed it. That being said, the humour lightened what was a brilliant story laced with some heavy themes. I fell in love with Blake, she is so full of sh

I finished reading this book this morning and I still can't get the words down on how I loved this story.

Firstly I gotta say I love the cover. After reading the book just looking at the cover gives me all sorts of feels. This cover is oh so right for this book.

I started reading this last night. At 50% I stopped. As soon as I woke up this morning I finished the rest of it. Yes it's that kinda book.

With these words I was sold......'and judge my state of inebriation based on how much tit or minge is splashed across page five.' And damn to fuckery LP Lovell, I promised myself an early night....did I get one?  No I fucking didn't cause I was knee deep, hook, line and sinker. Evil genius. 

Blake, I want to be her. 'She sounds like the Queen of England, and yet she drinks like a fish, swears like a sailor and dances like a stripper.' Fuck. I am her. Just without the money! She so reminded me of
This was a major bust for me. I absolutely hated the heroine. For her she gets -1 star but I loved Rhett.

The story itself is really all about Blake self destructing, being a spoilt, vapid, dumb cow, trying to catch as many STDS and just plain TSTL. Nothing about her character appealed to me. I get hurt and I get rejection but the way she carried on. She had no ambition but causing her parents embarrassment... to get back at them and no future ambition and even though she hated her parents was h

This is my first book by LP Lovell and I couldn't be happier that I read it. I was immediately drawn in by the blurb. A rebellious party girl who is all about alcohol, drugs and sex? Umm, yes, please!

I knew from first two sentences of the prologue that this was going to be an adventurous ride and it definitely was.

"Addiction and love. Two sides of the same coin."

I was immediately drawn in by the blurb to Rebel.  A rebellious party girl who is all about alcohol, drugs and sex? Umm, yes, please!

Blake McQueen is a trust fund baby. The daughter of a politician, who she rebels against. She is that party socialite that the tabloids live for. She cares about drugs, sex and alcohol. Not always in that particular order. One might immediately stereotype Blake as a stuck up girl who lives the life she does because of Daddy issues. While some of that

Always have been a huge fan of Lovell's works but the audacious turn in her writing blindsided me completely!

Blake McQueen brought the term "REBEL" to a whole new level, I'm absolutely amazed by how amazingly well-portrayed Blake's character was, the lengths of her rebellion knew no bounds. She was a wild child with an addiction for parties, alcohol and debauchery as we witnessed the painful descent of her character and she spiraled out of control and into a bottomless pit. All she wanted was at

I absolutely devoured this book. I read it in one afternoon session simply because I was instantly drawn in and I could not put it down.

The story takes off with a blast and you instantly know that you’re in for one heck of a ride.
Blake does what she wants, when she wants and doesn’t give a damn. Of course, L.P. Lovell always delivers characters with depth and layers to discover and enjoy and there is more to Blake than first meets the eye.
There are plenty of twists and enough drama to keep you

This is the first time that I read a book written solely by LP Lovell and trust me this is a ride worth taking. Let's say I'm not disappointed in the least. This is the kind of story that the reader has to go in with an open mind and leave their morals at the door. It's not for the faint of heart. I give it a solid HIGH five star.

I was really excited when this story came up for review. I wanted to see what the author would do with this age-old story-line ... a girl with the power to have everything at the snap of her fingers except the one thing we crave most in the world, love and acceptance.

I am seriously a fan of LP Lovell, her books just keep getting better and better.

This is a very different read from her previous books, but nevertheless a fantastic read.

A story about addiction and how it takes over your life, without you knowing.

Blake is a young woman who underneath it all is a very damaged woman. Turning to drugs and taking a path that makes sure that she is always in the spotlight. Coming from high profile parents, Blake makes sure whatever she does, it pi**es of her parents.

I wasn't sure about this book. I mean, I really don't understand the idea of drug use and addiction but I can certainly sympathize. I lived a sheltered life because I truly didn't know about how any of those things effected your body, life and relationships. I couldn't understand how Rhett could fall in love with Blake but you could tell that that was exactly what he did. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I didn't know what she was going to do and she was so self-destructive.

This is the first book by LP Lovell that I've read and it did not disappoint. Hot, addictive, steamy and even funny in some parts. While the end left a little to be desired with some unanswered questions, the book was still very good.

Blake's world is nothing but a lie - smoke and mirrors. It's filled with people who do things for reasons that only benefit themselves and lie to those they 'love' and do worse to those they don't. Rhett is his own personal type of bad boy with his own demons that c

This book was AMAZING!!! I have only ever read anything by LP Lovell when she has co authored with Stevie J. Cole and I totally loved them. LP Lovell writing is just as amazing solo. I am definitely going to have to read the She Who Dares series.

High is a rather tragic heart felt story. Blake McQueen is one hot mess. She is out for attention, and attention is exactly what she gets although it does not have the effect she is thriving for.

Oh wow! Ladies, you're going to love this book and Rhett in particular!

Blake is a different kettle of fish. Pushed down a destructive path, all she cares about is her next high and where the next party is. I sympathised with her character but she's also her own worst enemy.

Rhett is h-o-t!  He's possessive, dirty and has stamina! There isn't a thing to dislike about this steamy "bad boy with a reputation" but I guarantee that even if you do find something that niggles at you, it'll pale in comp

Blake is just like that one girlfriend that you know the one who is always up for a good time? Although Blake is a party girl the author manages to make her lovable at the same time. The reader finds themselves routing for Blake to have a happy ending or at least survive until the end.
Rhett is definitely book boyfriend material. He is the perfect blend of bad boy/businessman. When Blake and Rhett collide the sex and the storyline are epic. Definitely worth a read. This might just be

So, me and my local platypires go to this signing last weekend (Books are Bigger in Texas, for those of you keeping track) and I meet this lovely author from London, and she seems super rad, so I pick up this book, and she indiscreetly hands me an adult toy to go along with it, so I'm like 'holy junk YES! I cannot wait to find time to meet this new book!'

And yes, this book is bleeping HAWT. But it's also a GREAT story. I hate spoilers, so I refuse to write any, but I really liked this book.
