I enjoyed this romance and thought it was another wonderful addition to this deliciously decadent series. This book is a combination of the forbidden and bully tropes. The bullying in this book is more on the humourous, cute and spicy side and not the dark, cruel or painful side, so if that is a concern for you, now you know. I read this book with the full expection of loving it but it fell just a bit flat with me. I loved the tension, attraction, sparks and banter between Jamison and Ramona but ...more

H.O.T and funny; this book was to and oh so good. I know I say that with almost all of this authors stories it this one, might just be the best she has written. While this is labeled as a bully romance I think it would be better listed as a prank war/stepbrother romance. The bullying was more of how far. The heat and steam in this story is epic and oh so desirable! I loved every page.

If you read Broken then these two characters will be familiar and this is there story, one that was perfect for

Bully is book five in the Winchester Academy series, and even better than the last.

This isn't your typical bully story. They prank each other instead of being cruel.

Full of steam with a touch of sweet.

4 big stars!

Yes yes yes!
My ARC landed and HOOONNEYYYYY I am in my own personal heaven.

Ever since the little glimpses and build up of Ramona and Jamison in Broken, I knew their story was gonna be effing explosive. And it didn't help that Madison kept saying how this one is her favorite.

And woooahhhh she did NOT DISAPPOINT!

Right off the first line it's so fun you know you're gonna love it.

And those two..

This is one of those reads that I am gonna keep coming back to read and re -read and re-read because HAWT
Madison Faye and her latest Winchester Academy release, oh my wow. The writer just has a style of her own and I love she feeds my short, quick and dirty addiction.

He is so hands-off and a no-no, the bad boy, yet I want more than his hands all over me. But yeah, he's the Bully that I know.
We've been at each other since we were little, we're not little anymore.

Yeah, THAT kiss. the beginning of the end.

Bully! woohoo, book 5 of the amazing Winchester Series a great addition and a must-read. Madi

Another exciting story in the Winchester Academy series and its a sizzling bully romance/enemies to lovers/ step brothers romance.
Ramona and Jamison’s story has definitely been so worth waiting for. The plot is fantastic, the feels intense and the chemistry between them which we have been given alittle peaks at, errupts into a phenomenal read that shows us their steamy swoon-worthy journey towards that long awaited romance.

My Rating: 4.5 stars *******

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we the story of Ramona Weiss and Jamison Scott. Jamison has been tormenting Ramona since they were years old. Now however they live in the same house and are forced to be around one another since their parents are getting married. Ramona can't believe that her biggest tormentor had to come back and ruin her senior year. The other thing she can't believe is how much she is still in love with

This is both a bully but and a step-brother romance. Ramona has a love/hate relationship with Jamison that dates back to childhood but now that they live under the same roof, it’s about to get a lot more… intimate.

This is not your regular bully romance. Instead of cruelty they prank each other and it was refreshing to see. It’s all very childish and funny until it becomes sexy as hell. Full of filthy words and panty-melting sexy times.

"There’s No Stopping This Train."
Ramona and Jameson have known each other since kindergarten. All of this time he has been her tormentor. "Bully," is the story of two people who grew up together, and then fell into lust and love. Their "step" relationship, is new and didn't affect their view of one another. They were classmates, and then recently became a step situation. Bully? Maybe, but there was no malice. Maybe a immature boy who didn't quite no how to express his attraction? I know gr
Based on all of the reviews, this may be a "it's not you it's me" thing.

I finish my books I start, even if I can barely make it through. But I was left almost feeling dirty after reading this. As if I needed to shower to get the cringes off of me.

The thing that bothered me most was the parents being okay with it and encouraging it.

Also, I'm not sure why he didn't understand why she would be upset that she and her "stepbrother" being involved and having everyone know, would be not o

Ever since MF teased about this one book, and said what it was about, I was a total goner. Enemies-to-Lovers, Hate-to-Love and Hopeless-Loves are some of my favorite ropes when it comes to Romance books.
I was kind of discouraged when I saw the cover, I didn;t like it at all, but you know: don't judge a book by it's cover, so I just went on with the book. I absoluteley enjoyed this story, it's probably my favorite one out of the whole Winchester Academy Series, till the date.

This was a great read, thoroughly enjoyed….
This was a very well written story it had been well planned and the characters that were part of this story Jameson and Ramona were both extremely strong characters and the plot of the story is truly inspired and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
The attraction between them is very, very fiery and it is more often that not a case that they are both at each other’s throats and should you have been there it was not a surprise that you find them

I’m not really a fan of bully romances but this one isn’t your usual bully read. Ramona should not have feelings for the guys who had tormented her since she was a kid but she just can’t help having feeling for the hot tattooed bully. While Jamison was a bit of an ass he never took it too far with the pranks most were just childish things that turn into the fun hair pulling. They go back and forth with their banter and snark until the pull becomes to much and boy were these two hot together but ...more

This story crosses two genre lines...bully and step-brother. The bully genre is relatively new and can be a "hard read" for some. Jamison's bullying of Ramona was more like "when a little boy picks on the little girl because he likes her and wants her attention". Don't worry, Ramona gave as good as she got. The step-brother genre can also be a "hard read" depending on where your opinion lies, either way it's still considered taboo. After reading "Broken", I was eagerly waiting for this story. I ...more

Oh man. I’ve been waiting for Ramona and Jamison’s story and I was not disappointed. Theirs was a story a long time coming since they knew each other since they were little. Those stories of what if means when a little boy pulls a girls hair were spot on with Jamison. Their tension reached a fever pitch though and there was no stopping their fire. Gosh was this so hot I swear my Kindle May have had steam coming out of it. I laughed, I got hot and bothered and I cried. And I damn well can’t wait ...more

Fabulous taboo tale!!!

This is a wonderful story of a little boy who picked on a little girl. Jamison picked on Ramona relentlessly by putting "kick me" signs on her back and pulling her hair. As they grew up he continued to pick on her, then he moved away. Now three years later he's back and his dad is marrying her mom, but that doesn't keep him from teasing her and calling her Moaner all the time. But you know what they say about boys who pull a girl's hair....that's right he's got

Jamison has always bullied Ramona for as long as he can remember. Eventually he figures got why, because he has feelings for her. Now that his dad and her mom are getting married, what is he supposed to do.

Ramona can't stand the thought that Jamison gets so easily under her skin but of course she has feelings for him even though that's the last thing she should want.

When they are left alone in the house together for a few days, sparks start flying but what about what ever

Firstly i will say that I did enjoy this read, my first from the Winchester Academy Series that I have tried.
The thing that ruined it for me was the book needed a good proof read; words were misused and missed out and at times meaning was hard to gain. My biggest peeve was the incorrect use of pronouns as in Jamison and I's... instead of jamison (Jamieson?) and me.

Some would say i am being too picky BUT i maintain an author has a duty to write using good and correct English.

Good story, but not my favorite. I just couldn’t get to liking the H and h. Ramona and Jamison has so much potential but felt the story was a bit flat. Don’t get me wrong, Madison always writes some hot as heck love scenes and I have a hard on for the step-sibling trope but I had a hard time LIKING these two. I loved Ethan’s story (Jamison’s twin) and wished Jamison’s story got some of what Ethan’s had - the emotional aspect with the best. I would recommend as part of the series though. It was n ...more

I want to be bullied by Jamison!!! Another delicious installment in the Winchester Academy series. Bully is the story of Ramona and her soon to be stepbrother, Jamison. Their rivalry has gone on since they were kids. They say there is a thin line between love and hate, hopefully these two can figure it out soon. This story was steamy, taboo, tantalizing, intriguing, amusing, exciting and just fun overall. If you love forbidden romance in the step sibling genre, then this is a must read. I though ...more

This novella is about Ramona Weiss and Jamison Scott.

This high school romance series has been the best and this is coming from someone who hates high school romance. All of the novellas in this series are well worth the read.

This cover felt wrong for this book. Compared to the others.... I think a younger guy should’ve been used. The cover guy definitely didn’t look like he was in high school.

The story overall was ok. I was really looking forward to this book. And for some reason it just didn’t grab me fully. I was expecting more of the forbiddeness than the prank wars.

I wanted the sneaking around feeling. I really didn’t feel that in this book. Hopefully the next book is a little better for

★ Not a team player, only Team Ramona ★

—>>> Ethan Scott’s twin Jamison gets his own story, and I found that he was the tamer of the pair, but it was no less of a good steamy read! What has been brewing between them over the last thirteen years has finally got its chance to blossom, that is, if they take a chance and ignore all the society taboos. The signs were all over the place, literally, and obvious to all but these two characters! We get a cameo by the swim team coach,

Bully was a great story. Madison Faye did a great job on this story. The was strong, it was written well. Ramona and Jameson were both strong characters, they may have had a bumpy relationship but these two, they were made for each other. The attraction between them is intense, they have that love/hate kind of relationship. The chemistry between them was off the charts,it was sexy.
I enjoyed Jameson and Ramona's story, they were great together.
This was a great story, I'd recommend reading.

This is a voluntary ARC review. From the very first paragraph, I was hooked. I knew this book was going to be fun. It had me laughing and smiling remembering all the BS from High School. But it also got me thinking of all the semi-rumors, wondering... This book is a very well written, fun, with a ease of flow, which just makes turning the page as big a tease as J.

This is the 5th book in the Winchester Academy series, the drama in this quirky scandalous school absolutely never disappoints.
This is a standalone bully/forbidden step siblings taboo romance. A well-written fast paced story that is entertaining and humorous. The characters are likable, even though Jamison has been a royal pain in Ramona's life since forever. Highly entertaining, I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of the characters.

#1 bestselling contemporary romance author Madison Faye is the dirty alter ego of the very wholesome, very normal suburban housewife behind the stories. While she might be a wife, mom, and PTA organizer on the outside, there’s nothing but hot, steamy, and raunchy fantasies brewing right beneath the surface!

Tired of keeping them hidden inside or only having them come out in the bedroom,
