WARNING: there will be some spoilers, I plan on giving a long, detailed list of everything I disliked about the book.

Before I go onto my main review, I wanted to mention something quickly. I'm part of a big Reverse Harem group on Facebook (which does include lots of popular authors like Stunich), and one of the constant issues people bring up is reviews. There are a lot of readers out there who say they don't want to even review a book if they rate it less than 3 stars. There are other peopl

This is without a doubt one of the worst books I've ever attempted to read.

Y'all I made it FIVE chapters and this is what I got so far:

1.This "super rich" academy is literally called Burberry Prep.
Let's just slap designer names on shit and hope it sounds rich why don't we.

2.The popular kids are called Idols, yes, you read that right. Idols.
My eyes are so far in the back of my head they might never come back.

3. The regular kids are called in plebians.

Oh Boy!!!

Yes, bully romances with elitist asshole heroes are all the rage. And I admit to loving it when it's well done.

When it's really badly done with a weak heroine and characters that don't come off as appealing, it's just annoying.

I was so aggravated with the heroine that i wanted to throw my Ipad across the room. This book is basically about the poor scholarship girl getting SUPER BULLIED by a group called the Idols at a school for the uber rich.

A book of contradictions.

i have to state clear that when I pick a NA book with "bullying" dishing straight into your face than i'm a bit reluctant to say the least BUT since these kind of stories are in fact like a glutony immbedded into my subconscience then well, I read it cause of all the fun...

anyway, there are a numeorous amount of books on this subject (college, highschool stuff, drama, shit, bad boys and alike, yada, yada, yada) and the only thing really that can set one book apart from the others is, i

"I’ll stay one step ahead, and I’ll show them what happens when someone plays them at their own game."

This was so addicting! I loved and hated every moment of this story. Can I just say that the ending was so different from the beginning. It took me by surprise but in a most positive and inspirational way.

So much betrayal.

Filthy Rich Boys was filled with so many twists and turns. Of course, there's a crap ton of betrayal. Some things I did see coming and other's I had no idea what was happening. In this, you will meet Marnye.. but sometimes this book would switch from that spelling to Marnie. It was a bit annoying when that happened. Even though it is still the same name it was just confusing my eyes/brain when the spelling changed up.

Other than that, Marnye was an okay character. She annoyed me

Good god, C.M. Stunich has done it.

She's created a contemporary novel set in an academy with cruel, beautiful boys that's gritty in a worthwhile way that I enjoyed fully and to which I don't have super extreme criticisms of. I never thought I'd see the day. I'm completely in awe.

Part of me is hesitant to give it such a high rating (like a 4-4.5), but as I sit here at 7 am after reading this book all night, I'm emotionally pretty content and can't think of particular things that I found to ruin

Rating: 3 stars?

First things first:
+ The characters are in high school but this is not Young Adult.
+ Read the author’s note at the beginning, it will warm your heart.
+ I read the book in one sitting.

On one hand, I dislike dark contemporary romances and I am no fan of the author.
On the other hand, Stunich is really good at what she does and the epilogue is promising something epic.

Filthy Rich Boys is probably an introduction, a prequel to a revenge story that I hope will blow my mind and will pro

Prologue Fail

In 5 words: the prologue ruined the book.

Never had a chance to enjoy this book as by chapter 6 I knew that the prologue was the ending. Why should I invest in characters and their actions if I already know how it’s going to end?! Yes, you can argue as the start to a series I should have expected how the characters would end up, but to literally shove it in my face first thing was poor writing.

I finished the book but (as expected after my realisation) found myself not caring for the

There’s one reason and one reason only I decided to give this a shot and be a total hypocrite

Book FOMO is a real thing.

”But all my friends are reading it...” yea it’s a good excuse right?

After Stunich redeeming herself with The Secret Girl I wasn’t sure if I was ready to step it up to the hardcore bully romance this says it is. But ya know everyone else was doing it so

Turns out I was able to handle it and it did keep my interest! Not half the book Secret Girl was but I was surprised how q

To be totally honest here, I read this book mostly because of the hype. I mean, it's a popular Bully RH romance and it's a genre I enjoyed before so I wanted to binge read this series and another from this author. Now, Filthy Rich Boys was easy to read and a bit addictive. The prologue hooked me from the beginning and I just wanted to get to the end in order for the FMC to focus on her revenge.

However, in this book we learn that the characters are 15 and... I'm just not okay with that. They sho

DNF at 40% Unfortunately, this book was much to unbelievable for my tastes. I tried really hard to get into the novel (I love bully romances) but the characters in this book were too over the top for me. They didn't even act like the teenager they are supposed to be! Therefore, while this book will be a great read for others, it just wasn't for me.
I really enjoyed this book. Wasn't much romance in it but wow the story was brilliant. I'm DYING for more of this series I need to know what happens.

I teach and work with both middle and high schoolers. These CHILDREN do NOT act like them.

Why make a book based on 14 and 15 yr olds but have them act/think like college students? I believe the author just wanted to be edgy and it was a marketing strategy because almost everyone that said that read this say they imagined they were much older because the way they acted and for the book to be less creepy.

Because a book series geared for adults about how hot and sexy - and all the sexual t

Man, this was wonderfully awful. It's a tad Fallen Crest High but like a waaaayyyyy more fucked in the head version. It's ridiculous but that's not stopping me from being 100% invested in all these asshole teens.

This book gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'Revenge is a dish best served cold'!! Let's dive straight in..

So, I have read only one book about bullying before this and was 'Be the girl' by K.A Tucker and that was pretty sober compared to this. I mean, this was down right cruel. I was initially confused and apprehensive about reading this book.. the author's note and prologue did nothing to ease the swarm of butterflies in my stomach. Throughout the entire book, I was just

Stunich's newest release dives into the world of the wicked and privileged. The girls are vicious, the boys are vindictive, and our FMC might just be in over her head.

With great privilege comes a world where teens can gamble and trade away tens of thousands of dollars, the elite plan engagements before they're able to legally vote, and the heirs gather in secret societies where their only mission is to indulge in their ugliest desires.

These bullys do not know what they have unleashed

I love a good bully romance and one's I have read in the past are often a small amount of bullying, but as a reader you know they are doing it to fight their attraction or something along those lines. This book and a couple of others I have read this year have really stepped up on the bullying, some of it is brutal and as a reader your left with questions of why and how people could be this cruel. However the hero's of the stories aren't weak and

I blame myself. I have a love and hate relationship with RH. I tend to only like the ones that are paranormal because...magic.

I checked the reviews out on amazon and saw it was a bully romance, that's what sold it for me. "Prep" on the other hand did not compute, I'm thinking college but I get high school. If there's anything I hate it is high school romance. Yes, I know people marry their high school sweethearts , still not interested.

When reading this I couldn't get over the fact that these kids are only 15. Freshmen in high school. Putting them in sexual situations and stuff was just weird for me. 15 year old main characters in a book advertised as a reverse harem. Yeah, no. I would have been ok with it if they were 17 and 18. At least that's somewhat adult.

The new theme lately for books tends to be a Reverse Harem set in a High School environment with a Bully aspect to the story. I had read before Bully novels and RH's and enjoyed them but none together until Filthy Rich Boys. I have to admit as I have always been a fan of those two tropes, reading them together made the book more interesting. We have our female character Marnye Read who has been given a chance to have a full-ride scholarship at Burberry Prep. However, this isn't just a wealthy sc
