Book 2 can’t come quick enough.

41/2 stars read.

I thought I was going to be over HSBR but this one pretty much got me hooked. I think the hero and heroine of the story nailed it for me but what had me so liking it is the characters in this book and that’s pretty amazing for me.

Chase and MacKenzie are totally different from one another but yet the chemistry and sparks really doesn’t get off quick, but a little slower which I like. I however do enjoy when you have a girlfriend/ex girlfriend who

It was pretty good. It didn't quite end cliffhanger per se but you'd want to continue the series. I love the "burn" on someone who decided to mess with her!!

So this book was recommended on Facebook so I gave it a go. Let me start by saying this was my first time reading a book by these authors and I think they have a lot of potential...

First things first tho...When I read the blurb on goodreads and then read the book, the MMC wasn’t anything as described in this book. He wasn’t this arrogant, rich, hell-raiser, a**hole prick.. I actually thought he was more on the wimpy side, definitely not your usual alpha male that are in these type of books. Als

A little too short

This book was a little too short for my liking. It could have benefited from some length added. The characters could have been fleshed out or more science were the main characters interacted. I would also recommend going back and fixing where the main male character is called by his last name but it’s the wrong name.

I really liked this story so far I definitely can’t wait to see what happens next! There was some editing that needs fixed but it didn’t take away from the story at all! Man payback was awesome where Gus is concerned! I hope I don’t have to wait long for the next book to be released!

Lots of LoL moments

About 4.5 star rating.
This book had some pretty laugh out loud moments. It was a good thing no one was next to me laughing like a loon.
The storyline was pretty standard of bullies and the guy and the girl and the ex. There were lots of moments were I just wanted to slap my forehead from such immature behavior and stupidity but we are supposed to be reading about high school age teens/kids.
Over all it was good and I'm willing to read more.

Really good opening book

This is the first book I have read by either author, and I was really impressed. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. I hope they expand this story and write books for the supporting characters. I feel I should warn: this isn't your typical high school bully romance. I was expecting the hero Chase to be the bully, when it really was mostly his crew. Regardless I can't wait to read the next one, and hope I don't have a long wait.

Love it!!

What a good bully romance story. You get so used to reading the ones where the guy is a complete jerk. Not the case here. Yeah there is some billing going on, but the female lead gives as much as she gets. And that ending, was so very nice. Can’t wait to see what book two brings.

Great read!

This book was great!!!!! There were so many times I laughed. I really enjoyed it. And Mackenzie and Kara are awesome. I hope Kara doesn’t end up being a fake friend but i don’t think she will be. As for Mackenzie and chase I hope they get a HEA! And Mattie gets what she has coming to her. Definitely recommend this book!

Captured my interest

This book captured my interest from the start and I enjoyed it. The only downfall was some editing errors where the sentences were missing words to complete the thought.

Good read

The book started a little slow for me but really picked up and was quite an entertaining read. I really liked the characters and the overall storyline. I will definitely check out book 2.

I would give this a 3.5. Writing was good, and the MC was someone that I enjoyed reading about. I didn't like how it ended so abruptly, looking forward to the next one.

The storyline had potential but characters and dialogue were very flat.

I needed nine more words to submit this review.
