Rules is the third and final installment in the Greyford High series. I absolutely love Anna's writing style. Her stories are very well developed, and her descriptions and the little details, really bring the story to life. The way that Anna paints a picture with her words made me feel like I was actually immersed in this world. I love how she peels back the layers on her characters, giving us readers the chance to truly get to know them. I waited patiently, for some time, to get my hands on Max and Broo ...more

★★★★★ "INCREDIBLY moving, with both heartbreaking and relevant issues. The authors never shys away from difficult subject matter which keeps me coming back for more." - Keri Loves Books

★★★★★ "Rules does a beautiful job putting all the pieces together in the Greyford High Series. All three books are stand-alones but you REALLY need to experience all of them. SO AMAZING!" - Cali Gals Boo

Five FIRECRACKER stars for Brook and Max 💚💚💚!!!


I finally had the chance to read "Rules", Brook and Max's story, which I was waiting for since book one.

And I got more than expected.

I cannot without comparing this book with the first book "Lines" from the series "Greyford High".

Not because "Lines" was bad and this one was brilliant.

It's because if you've read both of them you can see how the c

How can I write review if I can't gather my thoughts? This book left me speechless. This was one of the best endings of the YA series I've ever read.
We can talk about all the broken people in this series, but Brook... she had a really shitty life. Still, in my opinion she wasn't broken, she was bent. And she was the strongest one. She was withdrawn and secretive, but only in order not to cause her friends any more problems with her life. This was her and Max’s story.. And what a story it w

Okay this is Greyford high #3, we have seen the 3 couples paired up, but my heart wasn't ready for this book. Knowing Anna, I knew this was going to kick my legs out from under me, and I was right. Dangit I was wrecked. I actually had to take a few days after I finished to think about this book, as I have loved this series so much. Anna paired my favorite character(Max) with my least favorite(Brooke) I really always had a hate thing happening with Brooke, I always thought she was just a little t ...more

I read the first series - New York Knights by Anna, and I fell in love with her writing style, but this series is another level.
I love all of Anna's books, but this one is her best one yet.

Since I saw ARC on my Kindle I was just waiting a free time to start with this book. And what a journey that was.

Max and Brook are everything. Both with their virtues, flaws and demons they are perfect. As individuals and as couple.

This book will break you, heal you, make you fall in

I have been waiting for this book since I read Habits... I mean seriously, you should see my messages to Anna asking for this book and let me tell you it does not disappoint.

There was so much to this story I could not put it down.

Anna does such a great job of bringing them to life and I’m going to miss this series so much.

Brooke and Max story is one to read. It takes you on a journey of true life struggles, love, friendship and camaraderie.

“Some things always stay the same no matter where you come from. Like the fact that every story has two sides.”

Brooke has to live by her own rules to survive. Max has struggles that he tries to hide from the world. You watch these character grow and develop as they help each other with there struggles without even knowing it. Anna’s writing was amazing with the wa

This has been one of my most anticipated reads! I have been wanting Max and Brook's story since Lines, the first in there series, and Anna B. Doe did not disappoint!
Max fell for Amelia but she chose someone else. Max is a good guy that wants to fix the rift between him and his sister, Jeanette, and also nurse his broken heart. Yet, this snarky girl keeps diverting his attention. That snarky girl? Brook, Amelia's best friend.
Brook is blunt, snarky and has a closet full of secrets. She protects

Rules is my favorite book in he Greyford High series! Although I have enjoyed all the books Max anc Brook's story is by far my favorite!

Brook Taylor is the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. She's been going to Greyford High but is only trying to get through. Max Sanders is the school's star hockey player. Brook has three rules she lives by in order to survive her life, but when Max walks into her life she quickly forgets her rules. Max is struggling and hiding it from the world

When I first read Lines, I instantly fell in love with Max. What can I say, I love mysterious bad boys and I just knew that his and Brooke's book is going to be amazing.

When I was starting this book, I set my bar high. Why? Because you've never disappointed me with your writing and imagination. And once again you exceeded my expectations because this book is incredible. I was eager to find out more about Brook and her background, why is she acting the way she is. I was devastated whe

For the complete story, not just Brook and Max, make sure you read book one Lines, and two Habits as this story runs along the same time line as those two.

Brook had three rules;

#1: Don’t form attachments.
#2: Don’t let your guard down.
#3: Do NOT fall in love.

And she broke them all. My heart breaks for Brook and everything she's gone through in her life. She has known one struggle after another, never seeming to catch a break.

I can’t believe the series is over. What an ending! I waited patiently for Max and Brook’s story and I loved where the author took us. INCREDIBLY moving, with both heartbreaking and relevant issues. The author never shys away from difficult subject matter which keeps me coming back for more.

Brook has always been a mystery, even to her best friend. No father. A mother who neglected and abused her. Choosing alcohol and drugs over her own child. The only one Bro

An intense read from cover to cover! Brook and Max's story was hands down my favorite book in this series! It was so emotional and traumatic but at the same time so darn hot and utterly captivating. You could feel the emotion the author poured into her writing through the entire book!

My heart broke over and over again for Brook Taylor. She was so damn strong, determined to create a better life for herself than her pathetic excuse of a mother ever bothered to. She kept anyone and ever

This series has just gotten better and better and now we finally get Brook and Max's story and y'all you have no idea how good this book is!

You think you know this tough girl and the good guy, there is so much hidden depth with these characters, you cannot help but get sucked in and becoming emotionally invested in them either. This book also runs in tandem with book 1 and 2 and helps fill in a few gaps that you didn't even realize were there, several times I was like AHHHH *Lightbul

This beautifully, well-written book put me through a whirlwind of emotions! The characters are sure to pull on your heart strings and you cannot help but cheer them on as they look for their HEA. This is an engaging novel that pulled me in right from the first page and kept me entertained until the very end. The author does a masterful job with character development - demonstrating how both Brooke and Max evolved and gained maturity as the story progressed all while staying true to their charact ...more

Brook and Max might be my favorite couple. I have said that with each new book in this series and totally mean it. Sigh. These two took me on an emotional ride. It is crazy how I get choke up thinking about them.

The injustice and horrible childhood Brook experienced makes me want to sob. Her need to harden herself and

Boy this was heavy. We knew Brook and Max’s story would be that way and even thought I went in eyes wide my heart still broke.

This read has so many heart wrenching moments. I cried for Brook and begged her to finally open up which I was so glad she did. How can one person take so much?

These two are perfect and I absolutely loved their story and getting inside their heads and hearts. Wonderful book and addictive series.

I have loved Brook and Max since the first time I met them in earlier releases within the Greyford High series and was so excited to find out RULES would be THEIR story.

And WOW... what a story they have!😮💔💚
It’s an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. Full of ups and downs, heartbreak, love, secrets, lies, deceit, and SO much more.

Max and Brook don’t have a “all hearts and roses” story. They don’t have “insta” love. These two have real love, real problems and real life changing

Whew, I have been waiting for this book since I started the Greyford High series and I couldn’t be happier with how this book turned out.

This is all about Max and Brooke and it brings back to the beginning of their story so we get to experience every moment that brought them to their forever. And oh what a story it is, their are so many struggles that we had no clue about when reading the other books and I feel like it made me fall that much harder for them.

The perfect ending to a bumpy ride with the Greyford High series. The author prefaced this book that there were a few scenes that may be redundant from previous books but they were needed to tell the full story. First of all, yes they were absolutely needed to be able to see the full journey but they didn’t feel redundant. They were told in different points of view than before so to me they felt somewhat new. Anna also takes on different teenage issues in each book and confront them in a very re ...more

This book is so incredibly heartwrenching! I mean. All. Of. The. Feels! It does contain some difficult topics, so be prepared. I was totally glued to this story from beginning to end. There is even a bonus epilogue to give you a little more of this beautiful story. The characters are so well written and the layers run deep. It is hard not to fall completely in love with the world of Greyford High.

The perfect conclusion of Greyford High. Max and Brook are so secretive in their relationship in Lines and Habits, just a glimpse or two. But the depth of their caracters, how they became who they are now, just profound. I also loved how the story is completed with the fragments of Habits, since both stories are intertwined. I had a few "aha" moments when the pieces fell together. Loooooooooved it💙💙💙💙!

Oh man where do I even begin with story. Its the 3rd in the series. Its Max and Brookes. Let me tell you I was not expecting any of it. I stayed up till 4am reading this book. I couldn't put this book down. If you even think you might have a clue on what's going on, naw you don't even have a clue.
It really disappoints me to give this book one star. I was really waiting for the conclusion of Max’s and Brook’s story. However, I just felt that it fell apart from the first page.

Brook has a character was someone who I really wanted to like. Yes, she had resilience, but her choices disappointed me. I found it hard to have sympathy. I didn’t like how she just didn’t have the spunk in the first two books. Brooks was broken. She wasn't strong.

Max seemed to be a golden boy. I really wanted to li

I must admit throughout this whole series I have had my doubts and even have came to despise Brook, so with this book I was hoping we could understand her better or at least try to and she could convert me as a fan. Well the author did not disappoint, I ended up loving this story and even loving Brook. Brook endures so much pain, torture, and tragedy in her short life that it isn’t hard to feel sorry for her or pity her. She is hardened by the rough life she has had to endure, she comes from an ...more

This book is about healing. And not just healing from a broken toe, a broken heart, or a broken mind. It's about healing a life that has been destroyed in more ways than imaginable. A soul that has been twisted so far beyond repair. It's about climbing out from deeper depths than Hell.

And not doing it alone. Even though you've done everything in your life to push people away . . . to hold them at arms-length (in truth, even farther). To not let people in because all you want to do is e

Rules was the most anticipated book of the entire series for me. I have been dying for Brook and Max’s story and this did not disappoint! This story was heartbreaking, emotional and truly beautiful. I devoured this book. I was completely drawn into Brook and Max’s life from the very beginning to the very end!

Brook is a survivor and a fighter. She has also been a mystery to everyone in her life and even throughout the series. There was so much more to her story than I ever could have

Rules (Greyford High #3) is the final book in the Greyford High Series and it brought all the drama and angst that I wanted to have to finish up this series. This book actually deals with some very serious issues and I do want to note a trigger warning for those that may need to know beforehand. I don’t read a lot of YA books because I am very far removed from YA but I really enjoyed this Series and this book particularly.
