I had a plan, and it was solid.

Track down what was hidden away and take pleasure in toying with it.
Toying with her.

It worked like a charm.
Until it didn’t.

Turned out, the feisty little thing I found was far from what I hoped for.
She was different from all I knew and more than I expected.

She was light, and I’m the bastard who led her into darkness.
But this girl... sh

MY REVIEW AND OTHERS: can also be found on my blog:

🌀BREAK ME:🌀 Is a full length, stand-alone angsty, new adult romance book by Meagan Brandy. Even though this can be read as a complete stand-alone, I personally would suggest you read this as part of the series in order as it does have carry on characters and will give you more background knowledge of these boys backgrounds and what shaped them into the boys they are today.

Everyone: There is no female worthy of Royce.
Me: Does it have to be a female?

3.5 stars

Good news: This book was much better than Be My Brayshaw.
Bad news: Still wouldn't call this god tier literature.
I step back, smiling at the girl in the mirror, and unexpected moisture fills my eyes, because for the first time, the girl who smiles back?
I believe her.


Royce better not disappoint me the way Captain did 😩

After Be My Brayshaw I know to keep my exceptions for this book low.

Finishing this book left me with two kinds of feelings... Sad because all the brothers are paired up now ... and satisfied as fuck because this book absolutely rocked!! away gif

I figured Captain's book would be the best and Royce's would disappoint me, but I am so happy to say that it blew me away instead!! This one is definitely my favorite out of all. And the two awesome main characters are the reason for that.

I loved Brielle, from the moment she stepped on-page and Royce... wow what a dick, but I coul

I’m so sad the Brayshaw series is over. I feel bereft, lost. What am I to do with my life now, knowing we won’t ever be back? But know this, Meagan Brandy ends this series with a bang, bringing the story not only full circle but also giving our beloved bad boy the perfect HEA.

Royce Brayshaw wrecked me. We got glimpses of his insecurities he masked with his playboy exterior, but we loved him because of them and because of the heart he has for h

“He will love fiercer than anyone ever could, deeper than most would think possible , but chances are, he’ll tear you apart in the process”

This story is so good that is almost painful to read.

But you can’t help to love every single page and every single moment .

It’s all we wished for and even more.

It’s more than an epic end. I feel like it’s a terrific new beginning . Where finally the circle is completed and the real story can now began .

It was really worth the wait.

Royce was really something

What a ride... Oh my God!
I'll miss my Brayshaw family with all my heart... (even Cap! Just kidding 😂)

Royce's book was one of my most anticipated releases this year, and sure as hell, Meagan Brandy didn't disappointed! At. All.

This book stars at a slow pace, showing the shallow surface of a deep and angry river, and leaves you guessing more than anything 'Where the hell are my party and carefree Ponyboy?"

This feeling ends pretty quick once you're able to dive deep into those dark and ang

"Break Me" is the last book of the "Brayshaw" series by the best selling author Meagan Brandy. Told in dual perspectives , get ready to meet Royce!!

I have been excited for Royce's book for a long long time! His character intrigued me a lot because of his personality switch stuff. One minute he was the charming boy who could bend anyone to his will and the next he was the cold man who scared people. I am so disappointed to say that I did not

FIVE TINK AND LOST BOY STARS for Brielle and Royce 💙🖤💙🖤!!!





I can’t believe it’s been a little over a year since I've read the first three books of the "Brayshaw High" series and completely fell in love with the Brayshaw world.

Although I loved all the characters from the series, a special place in my heart was occupied by Royce, whose book I eagerly awaited, but also welcomed.

I’m a lit
Oh my gosh, Royce has my heart! All the stars! All the stars!!

There are no words for just how great this story was. Wow, this entire series consumes you in the best way. These guys love and they love unapologetically. They are fiercely protective of their family...

But Royce, he stole the show for me. He was broken, he was lonely. He was known for his humor and for being the one who held his brothers together. With doing so, he lost himself along the way.

Meagan has saved the best for last, delivering a perfect ending to the series that has captivated us all! Break Me Brayshaw has all the angst, alpha intensity, and intrigue that makes this series so addictive, but it also has a poignant emotional center that had Royce and Brielle stealing my heart.

My favorite Brayshaw boy’s story is everything I ever wanted- and somehow so much more. THIS is the Meagan Brandy I love- THIS is what makes the Brayshaw series so amazing. Everything starts with secr

My FAVORITE Brayshaw! ROYCE was everything I had hoped he would be...yet SO MUCH BETTER than I could have imagined! I am completely, totally and utterly in LOVE with this man and all his broken parts!!! ALPHA MALE PERFECTION!

A cool head. A warm heart. A forgiving soul. The light to his dark. Soon she'll become his everything. Brielle was everything Royce never knew he craved.

Brielle never had an easy life. She escaped one abusive home only to find herself playing Cinderella in the next. Her brot

So is anyone else like obsessed with Brielle already? The epilogue in Be my Brayshaw killed me! Also, I can’t help but think about Royce’s convo with Raven in book one... about never wanting to take a girls virginity...

Royce Brayshaw did what he does best and he STOLE THE SHOW in the Brayshaw world!!! GAHHH I don't even know if I have the right words for this book. I have always loved Captain the most in this series, but Royce was a very close second, and I think he just knocked Cap off the top...there is just no way you can't love this fun playboy! I always knew he harbored so much more, something deeper that even he didn't understand, and I could NOT wait to read his story. M Brandy did not disappoint...she ...more

Genre New Adult | Angsty Romance

Not gonna lie, I had MAJOR tears in my eyes when I read THE END on Break Me. Not because the story is SAD (I mean, it does have some seriously emotional moments) but because this is the end of one of my favorite series in the world. These characters have become friends to me in a way. I know, they’re fictional, but when you spend so much time reading about them and going through their journeys with them you feel a deep connection; it’s inevita

If hot needy teenagers are your thing and romance without absolutely zero connection between hero and heroine then this book is for you. The first 3 books in this Series were amazing, the storyline was action packed and interesting then not sure what happened with Captain's book but it was totally butchered. I really hoped the author would deliver with this story, this was Royce's moment to shine but unfortunately it was a huge disappointment for me. Although the characters in this serie

What a way to end an already incredible series. Royce and Brielle are EVERYTHING.
The minute this book hit my kindle I started reading, and I didn’t stop until I’d read the last page - and by then I was an emotional wreck because of all the drama, but also because that epilogue was freaking perfection!!!!

Royce Brayshaw has always been my number 1 and this story has just solidified that for me. I’m so happy that he finally found what he was looking for, and I couldn’t have picked anyone better t

„What feels like the end, is always the beginning.”

First and foremost, I refuse to acknowledge that this is the last Brayshaw book. I can’t and won’t. What I can admit though is that Meagan Brandy created the perfect story for Royce. Break Me was nothing short of spectacular, it hit me straight in the feels and showed our favorite hothead from a completely unfamiliar side. This book will break you, crack your heart open and then mend it back together. It will shock you with unexpected twists
I went into this without having read the Brayshaw series, since it showed as a standalone, and silly me I didn’t realise it was connected to a series.

That said I can happily say I could follow the story and the author does a good job in giving us background knowledge and history. So no gaps, the story flows smoothly with no bumps.

I would still recommend to read the series before going into this, if you like the genre it’s worth it and it will positively increase your reading experience.

Ugh I don’t even know where to begin. Let me start with the fact that the brayshaw series has ended with royces book. When I finished this I straight up cried. Meagan ended this series so well. She gave Royce everything he’s ever wanted.

ROYCE: Royce in this book was so heartbreaking. We see Royce as this funny, loving, playboy in all the other books. In this book he was all of the above but even more. He shows us what’s been hidde

"What feels like the end, is always the beginning."

I was waiting like crazy for the final book in the Brayshaw series and after everything that our heroes went through in the previous books, honestly, I didn't know if Meagan could make this book even more catchy than the previous ones, but I was wrong!!!
The author gave us so much with this book...
First of all, she gave us Brielle, a very refreshing heroine for this crazy world that they are liv

Y'all, I struggled with this book SO MUCH. I absolutely hated Captain and the way he treated Victoria in the last book, but I honestly had a soft spot for Royce, and since you all know me and my love for the brooding bad boys with killer cheekbones and psychotic tendencies, I couldn't wait to have this baby in my hands. But oh child. What a mess.

So, the first few chapters were confusing as heck. I don't know if it was my migraine, my kids acting like animals and not giving me a second to breathe
