Rivals since before birth there’s never been a time when my family hasn’t hated the Lockwoods, and their daughter Harlow.

Two years ago she set us up, tainted our family image, ruined my brother’s life. She made it personal. It was no longer just a rivalry between our parents.

Now she’s here, at Bayshore University, no longer in her families clutches and without their prot

HOLY HOTNESSS!!! Can I have the Bishop Brothers? Because the authors have written 3 freaking sexy as sin alpha males that I need! Although, I screamed at them enough in this book that I wanted to throw my tablet so many times!!! I also screamed at Harlow, I wanted her to be stronger. I feel like she was made of more than she showed! This book made me an emotional fool!

Harlow is doing everything she can to escape the toxicity that is her parents. Being their pawn through life to do their dirty w

When Rivals Fall is my first book from these two amazing authors, and most definitely won't be my last. I am a sucker for menage books, and recently I discovered RH (reverse harem), and the new trend, bully romance genre, and I love it...I adore it. I try to read every book that I find.

Wow just WOW

Step into the collage life of Harlow Lockwood, escaping her past, running from her family’s rivalry with the Bishops, a fresh start in a new place. That all falls apart when her hopes are crushed when she realizes that the 3 Bishop brothers have followed her and are relentless, making her life a misery as revenge from what she blindly had done to the youngest of the three. Juggling collage, friendship, rumors, the Bishop’s, mixed emotions and conflicted feelings. How much can a perso

I love this book, but I don’t like that it ended on a cliffhanger. I just hope this is not going to be a 3-4 or even 15 books before we figure out how it ends. This is about Harlow, a rich daughter of parents whom are planning to outdo another rich family that has three boys. The three boys/men are Sullivan, Banks and Oliver. The three brothers are very like-able in my opinion even if they are bullies as they show a side of human to their meanness. Sullivan is brother that is framed by Harlow at ...more

Oh.My.Holy.Hell!🔥Those Bishop boys, Y’all.
The angst and frustration they cause. 😡Yep, the type that seriously makes you want to throw punches and your panties their way. At.The.Same.Dame.Time! 🤬Oliver(the oldest) Banks(the middle) and Sullivan( the baby) are all gorgeous and brooding, but different in their own way. They all share one common thing. A love/lust/hatred thing and a thirst for revenge for Harlow Lockwood. Oh Harlow, how I’d love to be that beautifully broken , yet strong and comple

When Rivals Fall by J.L. Beck and C. Hallman set my heart on fire and it burnt bright as it swooned in overdrive the entire time I inhaled this addictively captivating story. I generally don't read this genre because I am usually a one person kind of gal, but holy freaking goodness did I find myself falling head over heels in love with the Bishop brothers, Oliver, Banks, and Sullivan.

Despite all the emotional roller-coaster that this story put me through I couldn't help loving it

It took me some time to write review for this book as reading it I was very confused as toward my feelings. Normally I do not go for the reverse harem stories. What is more the amount of cruelty and bullying in this book is very high. But all the twisted situations and turns that I hadn't seen coming made this story line very very interesting. Soon I was immersed by the plot and couldn't put the read

It took me on one heck of an emotional rollercoaster. I had so many feels while reading it. My heart is broken. Harlow has endured so much in this first book. The ups and downs she has had to deal with would make some people quit. Not her, she is one strong girl and she proves it. No matter what, she doesn’t w ...more

If you think I'm kidding, then dive right in and you will soon know what I'm talking about! Harlow made me want to shake her and then quickly hug her. She made me want to scream and at times my heart would break for her, and I felt my eyes tearing up. The Bishop brothers (all 3) made me want to slap them across the ...more

I find myself saying this a lot with these two authors, but here I go again. You guys rock one hell of a story, that’s for sure. You both appear to have access to an endless stream of creativity, and I love it. When Rivals Fall is another really engaging and interesting story. I’m learning to not be surprised.

This is the story of Harlow and Oliver, Sullivan, and Banks, three brothers bent on revenge. Why? Because in the past Harlow did an unspeakably cruel act to Sullivan, which cost him dearly.

OMG, this book. I am not quite sure why authors are writing Young Adult lately but I have to say J.L. and Cassandra are kicking ass with it. When Rivals Fall is a brilliant book about two families that are bound and determined to destroy each other. Too bad the children are in the middle.

Right before everyone leaves for college and to do their thing, Harlow does something so bad to one of the Bishop boys that they are bound to make her pay.
Harlow doesn't know until it is too late

First up - how beautiful is this cover? I admit to being a tinnyyyy bit of a cover snob *hides face*. I can’t help the way that I am! Lol I try not to be but it’s hard when you see a cover that’s so gorgeous, and not feel drawn to it! <3

Second - bullymances are all the rage right now and I admit to loving them :D Sometimes, depending on the story, I do struggle if the FMC doesn’t defend herself enough or fight back as much as I’d want her to so I did feel some frustrations with Harlow in

WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED. This book had me hanging by a thread! I wanted to slap the crap out of the Bishop Brothers at times. My god!

When Rivals Fall is a reverse harem, bully romance story. Harlow vs. Not one, Not Two, but THREE smoking hot Bishop Brothers.. Oliver, Sullivan, and Banks.. And. They. Are. Mean.

There are two tropes that I love to read. 1. Bully romance and 2. Reverse Harem. Anything and everything bully romance and RH. Then to have them both put together in the same book? YES. PLEAS

This was the first book i have read by Cassy Hallman and JL Beck, and what a book to start with!! I finished this book about a week ago, and I still have not recovered. Bully and Reverse Harem Romances have always been my favorite tropes, but this duo takes it to the next level! I love The main Character Harlow. She is a strong female lead, but she also has her weak moments when it comes to the boys, Sullivan, Oliver, and Banks. She loves hard, but ultimately it leads to her down fall.
The Boys.

I wasn't impressed with The Bet by these two authors, but i still wanted to give this book a chance since the description really caught my attention. But well, this book didn't impress me much either. I thought the heroine was extremely weak and all of the characters were really missing more character development and more insight in their background stories. Take Harlow's new "friend" Caroline. She is described as a friend by Harlow, but we know nothing about her and the only places she shows up ...more

Talk about an emotional rollercoaster. This is a absolutely brilliant read. It had me on the edge of my seat. Shouting at the book, wanting to protect Harlow. But also feeling the pain of the brothers Oliver, Banks and Sullivan. But its not just about the past, something is really wrong, very wrong! And it left me guessing about the possible friend / not friend who can Harlow trust??? so

From page one, I am once again hooked with these authors work. I couldn't describe it. They have this unmistakable, magical way of luring me in with their story, it's freaking insane LOL.

Anyway, for me this story feels like a lot like a build up to the next book, what with the way we were just given a glimpse of their backstory but still manages to give a hint of mystery and loads of question for me to

Bully Romance is the new thing. Not sure why or how that got started, but it is the trend and it's what everyone wants.

When Rivals Fall is my first read from the co-writing authors and I was not disappointed. The cover draws you in, but the story hooks you.

The thing I loved about this story is that it's not just guys being jerks and girls fawning over them for being jerks, it's so much more. It's a history between the characters, it's a troubled tale passed on from parents to children with fal

First let me just say amazing book.

Harlow Lockwoods is a young woman that is in a family long live rivalry. Do as she is told. But she finally has found her breaking point. She goes all the way to the other side of the country for college. For a new start in life.

The Bishop brothers are the rivals. Oliver, Banks & Sullivan Bishop. They have been in a rival with the Lockwoods. They might be taking blows. But the brothers fight back harder.
