"Girls like you aren't exactly welcomed at a place like this, so keep your head down and look the other way."

Those were the exact words of my social worker when she dropped me in my newest hellhole, a place for "troubled teens".

I didn't listen, and now I'm on their radar.

They expect me to play along in their games of hierarchy, to fall in line in the social order they'v

So this was me after finishing this book:


In other words...everyone around me is roaring with applause and I be over here like, wuuuut? What did I miss?

Cause this "performance?" Was a total train wreck.


And yet, pretty much almost everyone I know decorated this thing with gold stars like a General getting ready for a fucking military ball.

In fact, there were so many glaring issues with this book, I don't even think I have the time or the energy to get to them all.

But fear not, friends.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! Boys of Brayshaw (book 1 of 3). Raven defies the town’s ruling boys club & is pulled into a game of secrets, lies & seduction

“You’re mine if I say you are, you’re trash when I decide I’m done. And I’m standing here telling you I changed my mind. I’m not ready to throw you out just yet.”

Books in Brayshaw High trilogy should be read in order:

From the second I saw the blurb for Boys of Brayshaw High, I freaked the fuck out!! I knew this book was going to be for me, and I proceeded to yell about it to my friends and make countless people put it on their tbr and read it. I may have also threatened to unfriend some people that knew about it but didn't tell me. LOL I mean, I take the whole sharing is caring thing very seriously.

So this book had been all over Facebook these past few days with gushing reviews all over. And I just couldn’t ignore it after I’ve seen it being compared to the Royals series by Erin Watt, which I loved and Fallen Crest series by Tijan. And those comparisons are warranted. Unfortunately, while PP and FC were executed well (in my opinion), this book wasn’t. I had huge issues with it.

So where do I even start?

First off, this book made me laugh. Not in a good way though. Like there are parts in th

MY REVIEW: can also be found on my blog:

’BOYS OF BRAYSHAW HIGH’ Is a full length ‘New Adult’ novel by new to me author ‘Meagan Brandy’ and is book#1 in her ‘Brayshaw High’ Series.

Seventeen year old Raven or Rae as she likes to be called is a tough, sassy mouthed, feisty, free spirited, fist fighting tough heroine. She’s been handed a shitastic life with a mother that could give two shits about her. She may be tough but she is one of th

And when I read in a review about the following scene, I LMAO :)

There is a ménage scene that happens with the heroine and 3 guys.

While they are stuck in an enclosed space in the dark, Raven (the heroine) has a panic attack. And the boys (including the hero) find the most appropriate solution to it!!!!!

First time reading this author!

I honestly went in blind, I wanted something edgy yet not overly complicated LOL and I ended up reading a book that made me relish every word on this journey, and damn, the fact that this is YA makes me wonder have I lowered the expectations bar! LOL

BUT really, I won't get into the plot, cause well, it's intertwined and complexly intense and I don't wanna spoil anything for those who decide to enter the world of Brayshaw High

This book was, frankly, ridiculous.

The 17-year-old characters spoke and acted like they were in their 30s. FFS, the boys were called men. I've noticed this trend in romance authors who are writing about teenagers but want to emphasise the studliness of their heroes. NO!! You made them teenagers, now have them act the way real teenagers do!! Don't try to pass off their amazing sex skills by pretending they really are 'men.' They aren't.

RATING: 5 'Big Man & Snow' Hearts!

Boys of Brayshaw High is pure entertainment from beginning to end, each scene unfolding with cinematic-like mastery on page.

Raven in one word is admirable. She's kick-ass, literally and figuratively fighting her own battles against past foes and new ones while also balancing teenage drama and romance. No matter the situation—be it a tough childhood, physical fights, catty remarks from the quintessential high school mean girls, or bullying of the alpha-hole varie

Wowsa - what a way to start 2019!!! Definite 5 star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me.

This book was EVERYTHING Angsty YA should be. It's definitely not a sweet YA story. Nope. It's a delicious, messed up, rip you apart kind of YA read.

Raven is the type of female character I love. Tough. Genuine. Feisty AF. She's also seriously damaged and complex - the author did a great job on Raven's backstory - I believed who she was and connected to her in a big way. I felt VERY protective of her by the end of the bo

Okay....this book was a BIG no no for me, and here is the problem...the writing style, how annoying the heroine is, and the hero has no personality. but first let me start off by saying the things I liked which is how strong Raven is, she knows how to take stand for herself and is not scared of anyone. I admire that so much because now a days in bully books the heroines are really weak, and here Raven is differe

I love them!! These characters have burrowed into my heart!! Endearing a**holes are my weakness, and I love these three. Plus, we get a heroine who is fierce with a backbone of steel.

The cherry on top is a story I didn’t want to end. Literally kept hitting my kindle hoping the pages would continue to turn!

I had such high hopes going into this one, it's been all over my Goodreads and Facebook feed all week with mainly positive reviews. Unfortunately the extremely bad editing, or lack thereof, made it very difficult for me to enjoy what had the potential to be a good story.

Honestly, my brain hurts after trying to make sense of some of the sentences in this book. It was so bad.

Plus, I didn't particularly warm to either of the 2 MCs, and I'd go as far to say that the 2 other Brayshaw brothers were m

Great bully romance.

I love books like this. It reminds me a bit of the Fallen Crest books when Sam, Mason and Logan were like one big family. This book begins with Maddoc, Captain and Royce as the kings of Brayshaw High and Raven “Rae” is the girl from the wrong side of the tracks that comes in to threaten their world since she just doesn’t have in her to bow down to them like everyone else in the school.

However, Rae ends up in the inner circle and part of their family like nobody ever has, tho
4.5 stars

With one word this book was all kinds of - AWESOME!

If you love the Fallen Crest series by Tijan and you enjoyed The Royals series by Erin Watt you will want to read this book ASAP!!! I also must admit that I loved Boys of Brayshaw High way more than I did The Royals. And it might even be a better balanced high drama YA novel than Fallen Crest - I actually shocked myself with this statement.

Raven/Rae is one of the best kick ass heroines in contemporary romance.

Boys of Brayshaw is DIVINE! I could not stop reading. I was hooked from the get go.
This book kinda reminds me of the Fallen Crest series, which I absolutely LOVE!!!!

Is this midlife crisis, is that what this is? Why does everything suck?!

This book is a complete cluster fuck. It is so stupid, I really can't encompass how stupid it is. I feel a little bit to blame here, the title does say "Brayshaw High" after all, I should have expected highschoolers and just walked away. I wouldn't have had to suffer through the trauma of 36%.

I really had to give this one a go after reading all the mixed reviews. Curiosity and all that...

I have got to say that I am a bit in between all the mixed reviews. I didn't hate it...but I wasn't blown away by it either, which was mostly because I had to suspend my disbelief quite a bit.

I mean where were all the adults in this book?? These 17-year-old teenagers were seemingly ruling a whole school and a town??

I also love my heroines to be on the strong, feisty and tough side, but Rae was a bit

I started book two on audio and I realized i had no idea what was going on. It’s been a year since I’ve read the first book and see how grand my memory is? Original review below.

Anyhow. I didn’t love it as much as the first time but I still liked it. I guess it’s not really a book I would consider rereading. I only did it bc I forgot what happened and there are so many characters I got lost. But now that I did do a reread and an audio version I can march to

This was my second book by Meagan Brandy so I kind of knew what to expect. I sadly won’t be able to rate it high stars like everyone else. Honestly, this review is going to all over the place. I didn’t know if I wanted to rate it 4 stars because it was entertaining or 3 stars because I had some issues with it.

Like I said while reviewing Fumbled Hearts This book was also a mix between the Fallen Crest series & The Royals series to me. Nothing wrong with that, I am just using them as a comparison
"Big and bold, fearless by nature and loyal by choice."

Seriously? This books should come with a warning! Meagan Brandy found a way to put some invisible glue between the lines that will keep your eyes on the pages, turning them until you suddenly finish reading without even realizing what just happened. I finished this book at 6 in the morning and was lucky I didn't have to work. I just couldn't put it down. Boys of Brayshaw High is a top level page turner!

Rating: 1.5 / 5 stars

As soon as I read the description my intuition told me it was not going to be good. But I didn’t listen to it, I though it’s not about the description or the tacky cover, it’s about the story – if it’s good everything else doesn’t matter. And since this has such good ratings and soo many good reviews on GR I though it must good. I was so wrong. The only thing I’m glad is that I didn’t spend money on it,
