I’ve got a secret.

Savannah, Georgia is full of debutantes and greed. The Heirs own this town. They own me, too.

I don’t know what I did to ruin what we had. But their kindness turned cruel almost a year ago. I was prepared to leave it all behind and start over at a new school. But Rogue Kelly, the king of the Heirs, ruined that.

He doesn’t want me anymore but doesn’t

I really like Raven Kennedy, and I sometimes like CoraLee June, so I'm very disappointed to have to give this rating.

The heroine, whose name I've already forgotten, IS A MOTHEREFFING GODDAMNED BLOODY DOORMAT. I cannot remember the last time I saw such a weak heroine - yes, she's worse than Violet. The boys do terrible things to her, and she just keeps desperately trailing after them, wanting even the specks of their attention, even if it's all she can get! I'm sorry, but I need spine in my

Rogue Kelly was my Achilles heel, and I’d never take another step without feeling the aching pain of his rejection.

Dudeeee. Ok so this one starting out didn’t exactly grab me. Like it felt totally put downable to me. I swear I put it down maybe ten times. Rolling my eyes and shaking my head. But then... this magic happened, and I could NOT STOP reading this book. All of a sudden I needed to know more and more and more. So yes. This starts off as what you expect from a bully romance and THEN the

I really don’t much have to say in a review for this one. I love the bullying trope, but this one really kind of pushed me the wrong way. Honestly, it felt a bit all over the place to me. Their reasoning for all the cruel things that happened to her was crap and I expected them to at least have to grovel or really apologize.

Scarlett was such a weak doormat heroine that I couldn’t even really make sense of it. As much shit as she talked and for how physically strong she was supposed to be, I don

a whole bunch of everything happening here...but I liked the thrill and the ride...

for those who like this kind of read, it's another hit, for those who don't, you don't pick it up.

This is one of my favorite troupes and these new to me authors did not disappoint.
Four Alpha males, Strong Heroine, Bully, mystery, dark, secrets, angst, romance and set in wealthy Savannah. And Great writing! I devoured in one night. I loved it all!

I won't write too much on this book. I don't have much to say. I love the bullying trope. But this book was too many pieces of books I read before with the bullying going WAAAAAAY overboard into violence.

The heroine? SO annoying and all over the place. The way she keeps asking for it?! really? There's barely any grovelling and so much goes unresolved in my opinion.

This didn't hit the mark for me.

Anyone who knows me knows that my favourite sort of book is high school enemies to lovers with a group of alpha hole sexy boys...
Cruel was everything I wanted and more! It’s like kindle crack to me!

I just loved this book, loved the story line and I loved Scarlett.
I loved all of the boys and I really hope that each of them get a book! Each boy was a strong alpha male and yes in the beginning they were grade A assholes and I wanted to throw my kindle several times... but as the
DNF'd at 30%.

I really enjoy reading Bully romances but I can't do this one. I can't for the life of me connect with a doormat, which is what Scarlett Livingston is.


Update 26/02/2019

Since it was suggested that my first opinion of this book was wrong ^^, I thought that I'd give it another try. Yeah, nah I still couldn't connect with Scarlett. And the more of the book I read, the more I cringed and not just at Scarlett but with the entire story. I still feel that she is a

This is yet another piece of shit.
The h is bestfriends with the 4 harem of guys who basically rules the city. But they suddenly throw her out of their group and bully and torment her. They even let her get injured and all. (view spoiler) And they enjoy giving her pain.
Just wow.
Not my thing.

Man I loved this book! I know that's a crazy way to start a review but when you fall in love you just loose yourself in the moment. And that's what happened to me! I was so enthralled in this book I just couldn't be bothered with anything else and I never wanted it to end. Yes this book had some pretty messed up parts but it was wrapped up in a nice shiny package! My emotions were running wild but it was oh so beautiful at the same time! Such a good storyline even though I was hanging on by the

"Bonham, Luis, Godfrey, and Rogue didn’t just run the school. They were practically going to inherit all of Savannah. Their parents had the three C’s: cash, connections, and capability. This city was in the palm of their hands."

A love/hate pager turner!

Let me just say a few things first.
1) I haven't been in the right place for High School, NA/YA romances lately. I've DNF quite a few, while shaking my head.
2) I almost didn't read this book because of reviews. I usually never read reviews
What a disappointment. I expected more.

I really enjoyed Raven Kennedy’s Cupidity Series so I was really looking forward to this one, yet strangely I was left confused and frustrated.

Scarlet is an 18 year old high school student who’s been best friends with the Heir’s of Savannah all her life. Rogue, Bonham, Godfrey, and Luis are the quintessential grown up on daddy’s blood money bad boys. They’ve suddenly tossed her out of their little harem, letting the school constantly bully and abuse her.

This was definitely scorching hot, and very intense read. I heard amazing things about this book, so I had to find out for myself. I'm super glad I did. I really enjoyed this dark little gem.

I thought I was rereading The Boys at Brayshaw at first, then this book turned into a while new nap game. This was definitely a completely different story. I will not go into detail I think you should go into this blind, if you think you can hands the darkness. I will say Rouge he is the definition of a

Not my cup of tea. The chick forgave these dudes way too quickly and the “we bullied you horribly to protect you” bs reasoning was not gonna cut it. I’ve read other bully romances before but this one did not have likeable characters at all. From start to end, I did not have a change of heart towards any of the characters. Absolutely disappointing all around.

I read this book awhile back and have had a very hard time sitting down to write reviews this year. I really did enjoy it though. When I read this there was no second book in the series and now that I check Amazon book 2 is out! So happy to see that this series continues. Rogue Kelley what a fantastic name Readers beware this is a dark read and is labeled as such.

For those of you who like bully Romance's, this one was pretty good. I love and hate these types of books. Love them if they're written well (this was), but hate the bullying and the easy forgiveness.
My gut was saying the whole time, fuck this!!
If it was me it'd be a very short book.
The reason for them bullying her wasn't good enough for me.
But having said that, it was written well and had me sucked in wanting to know what happened.

4 Stars! If you are looking for a good bully book, look no further! This one is excellent! It was so bad that it was so good. The Heirs were the untouchables rich boys of the high school and town in Savannah. I know it’s rough in the beginning, but it only gets better. Don’t give up. I loved it! ...more

When I saw this book was written by CoraLee and Raven I knew I just HAD to read it. This book blew my mind. These authors have been writing RH books so seeing them write a book that was MF was interesting. They did SUCH a good job with these characters. This was an amazing bully romance with plenty on angst. I look forward to seeing this writing duo publish another book!

I'm not a massive fan of the bully romance trope but I have read some brilliant ones and I'm always ready to give something a go. I also LOVED Raven Kennedys Signs of cupidity series and was keen to read more from her. This book in my opinion was not a bully romance. I did not finish and abandoned at 21%. In fact I only skimmed the story from 15% on and couldn't take it any longer. The story, plot and characters were stupid, one-dimensional (because there really is nobody IN THE WHOLE SCHOOL

0 stars: Some people need some serious counseling

I literally felt sick to my stomach after reading this and questioned the mental and emotional stability of the authors for writing a main character who willingly accepts all this abuse, but I guess there are really people who are like this in real life who continuously subject themselves to other abuse because of "love".

She’s had enough of being bullied and heads to the lions den a few days before she’s being shipped off to cause bother with everyone who has wronged her recently, especially The
