My best friend's brother grew up. Hot.

I know the rules.

The rules say Dylan Cameron is off-limits.

That includes his messy dark hair and wickedly knowing eyes. The hard body he built playing rugby. Definitely his reputation for doing very bad things.

But when the most gorgeous, mysterious, brooding boy I never let myself want shows up on my birthday with a confession that se

Schooled by Piper Lawson is the first book in the Travesty series it's a great start to the series but a little predictable 🙄 (best friend falls for other best friends brother yep you can guess the rest).
It's a quick sexy fun read,if you're looking for something light hearted with a little naughtiness then this is definitely the book to read, it can be read as a standalone but if you want more from Dylan and Alexis then book 2 is needed which is the best friend story.📖

Schooled is a debut novel for Piper Lawson, and is a stand alone novel with an HEA. It's a college based love story, between Alexis Caine and Dylan Cameron. For a first timer, well done Ms. Lawson. I applaud the efforts.

Best friends Alexis and Ava, have always had a dream to start their own fashion label. Ava, being the designer and, Alexis, would handle the business side of things. Ava is a carefree, artsy type, whilst Alexis, is more cut of the mill, and goes by the book type of girl. Focused

I wanted to LOVE this book.. I read the first chapter online and instantly likeD Dylan... but then.. IDK...

The book starts out at Alexis birthday party soon after her high school boyfriend broke up with her... She is still a lil heart broken licking her wounds when she runs into her best friends younger brother Dylan... Dylan and Alexis share a moment and she spends a lot of time rejecting

4 to 4,5 stars.

Schooled is the first novel published by Piper Lawson and as far as I’m concerned, it’s certainly not a bad one! I really had a blast reading this college romance story.

Who should read this book?
Fans of YA novel with college romance. If you’re looking for a light read with a driven heroine and a sexy but quite innocent best friend’s younger brother with a little something different, it could be your book.

The plot in a nutshell:

This book was provided by publisher/netgalley for an honest review- thank you!

Schooled by Piper Lawson is the first book in the Travesty series. It is a new adult/college romance. There is NO cliffhanger. The second book will be in the point of view of another character- Ava. For fans of happily ever after books, pick up this one. It is fairly short (199 pages), contains sexy book boyfriends, and makes you crave the type of relationship portrayed in this book.

All in all,
The Talented Miss Ripley
Pretty Good

Actually I can't wait to see what the next book will bring. Funny, hypnotic, tasteful, and delicious to read! I couldn't put it down!

I recommend anyone that loves a good romance book!

Schooled is the Debut novel for Piper Lawson and I thought it was a good first novel for her. I enjoyed this story, but it didn't WOW me. I thought the writing style was really good and the flow and pace of the story was spot on.

I think my only real complaint was that it wasn't anything new or original. The storyline is like many I have read in this genre and nothing really stuck out to make it different from other co

This book is light hearted and HOT. AND I MEAN HOT. . .

To be very honest, I thought that this book would just be like the regular ones nowadays. You know? The ones with broken characters and such a heavy burden on both ends?

However, nope.

Both characters are damn smart! Lex is your ultra smart business-woman-to-be while Dylan is your future engineer. Both of them like studying, which by the way, already makes them very unique among other lead heroes/heroines. They're both driven. I like that a
I'm not a writer but there are rules every book 'has' to follow in certain genres, I get that. And I can understand it's hard to write something different and create something special with a story that has a HEA but this wasn't just my kind of book I guess. Everything was very predictable, very plain and I didn't get to a point where I cared about the characters. Alexis is a very average girl who I never got to like, and Dylan is just the typical hot guy, lots of muscle, good looks, every girl w ...more

Schooled is a novel I did not expect to like given the typical plot; college romance where a girl and a boy had something in common and ended up in a very steamy relationship. If you’re a New Adult reader then you should expect that most of them are like this but despite the tropes, Piper Lawson did well with her debut novel.

New Adult MC’s tend to exasperate me but thank the universe that Alexis “Lex” was not the immature type, she’s actually a girl who wants to be empowered, she wants control

I didn't expect much judging by the blurb, but even my low expectations were hit with disappointment.
A guy two years younger... Hmm is that supposed to be a dramatic effect?
A bit like a bad college party.

SCHOOLED is Piper Lawson's debut romance that bring us a delicious story about a subject I love so much but there was a long time I didn't read about: the college romance.

Lex is a business student who dreams of opening a franchise of clothes along with her childhood best friend Ava that goes in the same college studying fashion. The story begins with th

Schooled is the first book in a new adult contemporary romance series called Travesty. Travesty is the name of a fashion brand created by two college best friends. The first book in the series is Lex, or Alexis', story. And the second book is Ava's story. I am not sure how many books there are going to be, or if after these first two is subsequent books will continue to follow new couples or will shift back to L

I absolutely love when I read a book and fall in love with it, only to find out that it's a debut novel and this book fits in that category easily.

I was crushing on Dylan pretty much right off the bat. It's obvious that he has secrets but I had no idea what they could be. He didn't seem to be hiding behind them as much as just trying to move on from them. The way that he and Alexis immediately clicked after seeing each other again was fantastic because their chemistry was off the charts. Their r

This was a well written enjoyable debut novel .

Lex and Ava are best friends. They are ambitious and have a goal they want to reach together. They are trying to steer clear of boys. That changes when Ava's little brother Dylan turns up!

If you like forbidden romances then I recommend this story. It's a slow building romance with great characters. Although the storyline didn't blow my mind I enjoyed reading this and look forward to reading more from this author.
Tink Magoo is bad at reviews
Argh, I love a story about falling for your best friends brother and the characters hiding their love/lust etc but in this case it just really wasn't for me.

I didn't enjoy the style of writing and I didn't find Alexis particularly likeable. The story slowed down and I wanted to skip parts.

3.5 stars.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this CR/NA.
I always wonder what I am doing reading college romances, but this was so much better than I thought it would be. Sexy but cute, with the protagonists more mature than usual. Also, Dylan is a couple of years younger than Lex, yet it works really well.
Definitely worth a look!

A very cute read. Not overly amazing but not boring either. Well written with heart racing moments in it. I would totally love to read the second book about Ava's story :)

Some major sneak-up-on-you-hotness in this book!

This was the second book I read in this series; I started with book 3 and loved it so much I wanted to start at the beginning. Schooled was an awesome "first of the series" in that it established a perfect foundation for the rest of the series.

But good gracious, I was NOT expecting the level of HOT contained in these pages!

Dylan is certainly broody and VERY intense. I really liked him, and I really liked him when he finally went after who he wanted

It’s been a while - wow oh wow is it a friends to lover ? Not really
Is it taboo ? Absolutely not
But OMG , Dylan Cameron did twist my panty and some author should make more H like him

The chemistry between him and h was beyond hot

My Thoughts:

Schooled was a sweet, fun, and sexy romance! It is about Alexis "Lex" Caine, and Dylan Cameron, and told exclusively through Lex's point of view. Lex and Ava have been best friends since they were children. In high school, they both came up with the dream of starting their own fashion line. Lex is in charge of the business aspect of their dream, while Ava is in charge of the fashion and design aspect. Lex doesn't have a very stable and close relationship with her family. Her father t
