Girls of Greyson #1

Tempting Little Thief

Rate this book
Bastian Bishop. That’s his name.
He’s rough, rugged, and utterly unpredictable.
He’s not cautious or contemplative. He’s a volcano. Silent and steady one second, and a nightmare in the next.

But that’s not the worst of it.
This guy? He’s an outsider and in my world outsiders don’t belong.
They’re unwanted, unwelcome and known to disappear without a trace, yet he doesn’t seem to care.

After one night of reckless rebellion, the tattooed tyrant keeps coming back, sneaking into my world without permission, and causing trouble I can’t allow.

I should end this now before my father discovers his existence and does it for me, but he won’t allow it.

He says, like it or not … I am his now, that nothing and no one will stand in his way.

What he refuses to understand is I’m a Girl of Greyson, a coveted queen of sorts in the underground crime world.
He’s a nobody, an insignificant man with nothing to his name, marking him a threat to my own.

We could never be, but he won’t hear it.
And me? I know exactly how this ends.

Or so I thought I did, until betrayal burns so deep that suddenly nothing makes sense.

Nothing but him…

Four years after unaliving his abusive father, Bastian Bishop finds himself teaching a lesson when Rocklin Revenaw strolls by, unaffected.

The bombshell socialite falls for the dangerous bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Their story is as old as time. Until it’s not.

Explosive (literally and figuratively), smexy, unpredictable, chaotic. This book had a lot going on. I’m probably in the minority, but this was my first MB book. Perhaps Tempting is akin to her normal writing style, but I found myself struggling to grasp what was happening. I really loved the unexpected twists and the forbidden love story, and especially the powerful female characters in leadership roles. But more times than I can count, I was re-reading and making notes about who was who. Ultimately I still feel like I missed some important things. I wonder how much difference it would have made to have read the Boys of Brayshaw High series prior. All this said, I have every intention of reading the rest of the series and, if time allows, Boys as well.

WOW! Meagan Brandy wasn't messing around with this one!

5/5 ⭐️
3.5/5 🌶️

College romance
Secret society
Opposites attract
Poor boy x rich girl
Touch her and you die
Found family

Ugh, this one starts off with with a BANG. It starts off in the past with Bastian dealing with his abusive father as a child. While this aspect was sad, it also added depth to Bass and let us know a bit about his history and where he came from/how he grew up.

Our FMC is the opposite, she grew up spoiled and rich, however, she isn't just some innocent princess, she's been taught how to protect herself and has quite the clever mind. I felt like she was actually quite the badass. :)

Did I mention that this man not only has a pierced peen, but he has one of the filthiest mouths? I LOVED him!!!

I really enjoyed the secret society aspect of this, I was intrigued and curious about all of the secrets and what these people who were part of this society were up to.

I cannot wait for the next book!

Just a thought and I'm hoping I'm correct... Could this be where Bass Bishop ended up? Been wanting his story for a very long time... Could Blonde be one of the GOGP?

Yes Daddy.
Careful ma… I might like that

Anyone who knows and has followed my reviews for a while knows my love for the Brayshaw boys. They are a comfort reread for me so I have been dying to get my hands on Bass Bishop and in his head for a looooonng time. But when I tell you, I was not ready for the enigma that was Bastian Bishop. He definitely gave those Brayshaw boys a run for their money with being top tier book boyfriends.

Rocklin was the perfect heroine for him. Sassy to his possessive. Strong to his streetwise and stealthy to his overprotectiveness. They balanced each other out and those first few chapters where they were bantering back and forth had me flipping the pages so quickly to see how they were going to one up each other again. These two had me grinning so hard at my kindle and internally squealing and kicking my feet.

There are certain parts where you will have to suspend your belief because things get crazy

If you love any of the following you should definitely check out Tempting Little Thief because it’s become a top read of the year for me. It was everything I didn’t know I needed for Bass and Rocklin and I’m dying to get my hands on side characters books.

💗Possessive, alpha hero
💗Kick ass, doesn’t need no man heroine
💗Alllll the bombs and plot twists
💗Drama, drama, drama
💗Top Tier banter
💗 side characters that will leave you salivating for their books.

I need more from this world asap!!

This book delivers a unique plot set in an intriguing world, accompanied by a fantastic cast of new characters. This was my first Meghan Brandy book and I loved it! Without revealing too much, I can assure you that this book takes you on a thrilling journey. I was so engaged with this book from the get-go. The first half progresses steadily before an unexpected twist in the second half unleashes chaos. The non-stop action kept me engrossed until the very end, despite some moments that left me a bit perplexed. Brady's writing style is immersive, and the palpable sexual tension and chemistry between Bastian and Roclin were simply delicious. I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment, as I believe this captivating couple may become my favorite in the series!

Favorite Quote:

I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book for YEARS and finally getting my hands on it made me squeal in delight! I knew it was going to be good based on all of Meagan’s previous novels, but I didn’t realize it would be THIS GOOD. Bass is so much more than I thought he could be! And our heroine? Even better! I love a badass female lead that holds her own, and she is that and so much more! And let’s not forget the twist that I didn’t see coming. I knew there would be SOMETHING but more secrets and answers to come. They already have me hooked and immediately want the next one. I loved it!

"Because the good things aren’t pretty, they’re dark and messy and confusing and wear leather jackets."

Ever since I read Royce & Brielle's book I was excited for Bastian to get his own book and discover more about the sassy princess he bought along with him in his car and I was ready to devour this book! The plot was unique, the setting was intriguing and the new set of characters were amazing! I don't want to give away much about the plot but I can definitely say that you'll be in for a thrilling ride. In the first half, everything was going on as expected but then the twist came in the second half and chaos followed. So much was happening till the very end and NGL some parts confused me so much but I couldn't put it down. The writing sucked me in and the sexual tension and chemistry between Bastian & Roclin was delicious! I want the next book like yesterday because I think the couple in the book are going to be my favourite in the series!

I would give this story all the stars in the world if it was possible, this is honestly the part I dread the most, when I read a book that resonates with me the way this one has. Nothing I say will do the story justice or articulate the way I felt while reading. You definitely need to experience this for yourself, it's some of Meagan Brandys best work to date, but here are some of my thoughts anyways...

From the Very first page I was hooked, the world that Meagan created, and the way she was able to make us picture every detail was unlike any of her other stories. This is definitely one of Meagan's longer books, but I personally believe every word was needed. This story is mysterious, with an upper Chrest type of vibe. It's also got a little Mafia mixed in, and even more to come in the next book. This is a standalone but there is so much that sets us up for other characters to get their HEA, and I'm so excited for what's to come.

Rocklin the heroine is everything I love in a female lead, badass, she’s the total “chews men up and spits them out” type of character, she’s controlled and calculated, a born leader…. Looking for the right person to give up some of her control for, and Bastian Bishop may be just that person, her other half. Two people who are so different but yet, so right for one another.
I seriously love both of them so much, the inner thoughts of Bastian as her thinks of Rocklin, had me totally swooning, and wishing he was real, these two are going down as one of my favorite book couples, they are a dynamic we rarely see, and something special. These characters Have managed to leave me in tears, which only one other Meagan Brandy couple has managed to do, I am so head over heels for these two.

The aristocratic vibes Mixed with decadence and mystery gives this story an intense aura, that has you anxious for what's to come, I couldn't put this book down, I kept telling myself one more page, because i needed to know what was going to happen next. Do yourself a favor and run and read this story ASAP!

***4,5 "Rich girl!!!" stars***

"Every pretty little princess needs herself a prince. I'll be her dark, daunting one."

OMG!!! Bass Bishop's story is finally here after so long that I was craving it!!! And it was so freakin' good!!!
Bass was a revelation in here and I fell so hard for him and his possessive ways!!!
And his girl was a mix of a princess, a socialite and a badass!!!
Their chemistry was so explosive and this new world that Mrs. Brandy has created is so addictive and I just need more!!!
For those who have read already the Brayshaw Boys knows very well who Bass Bishop is, but for those that haven't heard his name before, what are you waiting for??? It has come the time to meet this enigma of a boy!!!

"Bastian Bishop cannot be ignored or forgotten. He won't allow it any more than my mind will. He's a fucking tornado in dead lands -all eyes called to the chaos without realization."

This time, we are entering the Greyson Academy, a school for the elite of the underground and our focus is on their queen, Rocklin Revenaw.
Rocklin's world has its own rules and they don't like very much the outsiders...
But one crazy night, she is meeting a stranger and she is stealing something from him.... But imagine that!!! This crazy boy is entering repeatedly her world and he is stealing little pieces of her, every single time they meet... and even though, she knows that she has to leave him behind and never look back, he insists that she is his and he is refusing to let her go.
But her world is a very dangerous place and can someone like Bastian survive in it???

"Bastian Bishop is a nobody, just as he claimed.
No, that's not true.
He's not a nobody. He's... mine."

I loved this couple so much!!! Their encounters were so intense, sexy and possessive!!! I was never expecting from Bass Bishop to be like that and honestly, this was the best surprise ever!!!
I loved his character back in the shadows of Brayshaw, but in the Greyson world, Bass Bishop was thriving!!!
Even though he was just a peasant with a dark past, with this certain queen by his side, he could do and be anyone he wanted...
Rocklin was a strong female and she was the right pair for this boy!!!
I loved their story so much!!!

"There's a fire in her eyes that speaks to the devil buried in mine, and he wants to play. To worship. To possess."

Of course, Bass and his little thief weren't the only that were catching the attention!
This show was running by these two, but there were so many intriguing characters in here that I am craving to read their stories!!!
I am impatiently waiting for the next book to come into my hands...
The only sure thing is that Meagan Brandy allured me in a new addictive world that I can not get enough of!!!
Just read this story!!!

"Call me Bastian, little thief."

“Every little princess needs herself a prince. I’ll be her dark, daunting one.”

Days … days later and I still can’t stop reeling. I can’t stop feeling the tale that took me on the most riveting roller coaster. This Tempting Little Thief stole my heart and ravaged my soul, and I loved every meaningful moment. I was catapulted into the Greyson world where I breathed every word, not wanting to come up for air. Utterly hypnotizing! Oh my did this love story shake me to my core, decimating me in the best way. I was blown away!

I’d been craving Bass’ book for what feels like forever. After the inspiring Dedication and gut-wrenching Prologue, I knew this mafia meets elite prep school tale, Tempting Little Thief, would annihilate me … and that it did. I was wonderfully wrecked while thrust into the Greyson world, a world as equally addictive as my beloved Brayshaws. I knew Bass would need an equal to Raven, the reining Brayshaw queen, someone to bring him to his knees.

Before I dive into my character crushes, I have to shout out my love for alliteration with the BB and RR names for hero and heroine. I thought I knew Bass from his appearances in the Brayshaw books, but I had no clue. He is the strongest of kings as is his queen, and together they slay. Broken sees broken and Bass and Rocklin take each other’s shattered pieces and make them whole. They are combustible … lovable … unstoppable … unforgettable.

Prepare to fall for an off-the-charts possessive hero, an admirable heroine, and their beautifully broken, soul-scorching love story that is strength meets serendipity. I fell so hard for this heart-pounding, gut-twisting, mind-bending, must-read romance. Tempting Little Thief is a ruthless read with the intensity of a thousand flames and I burned for this book. Potent. Powerful. Passionate. Possessive. Tempting Little Thief is EVERYTHING!!! Go get Greyson-ed!

A top 2023, unforgettable and unputdownable romance!!!

💋💋💋💋💋💋 but worth all the stolen kisses

I received a copy of this arc in exchange for my honest review.
Bastian. Freaking. Bishop.
Well, I didn’t see his story coming.
We were first introduced to him In the Brayshaw High series. He would come and go and carrying around such mystery, a true enigma. All of us Bray girls have been patiently waiting for his story. Well, wait no more. He is here, and he DOES NOT disappoint.
He is hot, possessive, and obsessed. He checks every box for the perfect bad-boy boyfriend.
Rocklin is the absolute opposite of Bass. He’s poor and comes from the wrong side of the tracks, where she is rich and comes from the elite. He comes with a dark past, she comes from high standards with a paved out prestigious future. She is strong, Independent and the ultimate bada$$ heroine.
The chemistry between these two are explosive and will leave you panting. The spice with these two is dirty and delicious. Just as I was quickly sucked into the Boys of Brayshaw world, I am already In deep with the Girls of Greyson.
This was the perfect start to this new series and will just leave you starving for more. The secrets, the chaos and the thrill will grasp you until you are full on addicted.
Meagan never disappoints her readers, and this was no different. This will be another series to take over booktok!

entering my girls of greyson prep era✨

ever since I finished the brayshaw high series two years ago I have been waiting for bastian bishop’s story…& now that I have it in my hands….It is officially everything I hoped for and MORE🤭🤯🥵

overall I have one word to describe this book: WOW!

this book kicks off in a parallel timeline to when boys of brayshaw book 1 began so we do see some lil snippets oh events that happened in that series, but it doesn’t mean you need to read the boys of brayshaw series first… I would HIGHLY suggest you do though because it is AMAZING!

also miss meagan…..the spice in this one… oh baby😏I think this is your spiciest book yet.

In tlt we get the following tropes:

✨organized crime
✨found family
✨jealous/possessive vibes
from different worlds
✨secret society
✨touch her and you ☠️

Rocklin is such a BADASSSS FMC who can hold her own, rule her kingdom & make her own choices. Bass is the absolute hottest & most confident MMC who knows what he wants and won’t stop until he gets it.

Also…..the jealousy scenes.. had me shook🤭

What I absolutely loved about the brayshaw series was the twists, the mystery, the clues…and that is no different in TLT! This book delivers a well established world, a found family, characters you will become obsessed with, and the most addicting plot!

This book gave bastian bass everything he deserved & more.

NOW I will patiently wait for the next book because.. I need it asap🤌🏼

This book gave me a migraine

6% in I have no fucking idea what’s happening, it’s like they are having a conversation in alien language


“There it is,” I groan, keeping my position, my dick rubbing along her walls, working her G-spot and this girl, she starts fucking dancing. Straight up dancing, eyes closed, hips spinning in a circle, ass lifting off the seat and coming down just as fast, rolling in a crazy eight-like pattern. She doesn’t lose her pace, doesn’t stop pressing against me. She keeps moving, taking my cock like a champ as she chases her orgasm. And good for fucking her. She should since she hasn’t a clue if I’ll give it to her.

This just made me laugh okay? 😂😂 Dancing? Yeah no

I had no idea what was going on, who they were, what the books about, nothing. Unnecessary details/descriptions. Not my vibe.

5 Holy Hotness Stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Well, well, well. Bass. Motherfu*king. Bishop.
I knew he was a Badass. But damn! He is a straight up gangster! Sexy, Fierce, Ruthless and Maniacal. Completely unpredictable. Always 10 steps ahead. An invisible threat you never hear or see coming. And oh so delicious!

I have been missing Brayshaw big time. And when I heard about this spin-off series, I was beyond excited. And Meagan delivers. Scratch that - she upped the ante, tenfold. Though Greyson is a completely different society, they are allies with Brayshaw, and we get a glimpse or two of our favorite Bad Boy Brothers of Brayshaw.

Meagan does an amazing job building this new society & world for us, as well as sharing its backstory. In such a fabulously detailed manner, that you get pulled in and instantly invested.

We learn Bass’s Backstory, as well. His childhood. How he came to Brayshaw, ended up as an Enforcer (Overseer) for them and how he handles the Warehouse. And, in more detail, what that all entails. Lots of badassery! Along with his best friend, Hayze. The one person he truly trusts, connected through past trauma, & the nightmare he left behind. Bass has learned & earned his keep, and well. Very well. And now he craves more for himself. And a better life for his sister.

A chance encounter thrusts him into Rocklin Revenaw’s life. Fate. Feeling a strong pull to her from the start. His little thief, who has everything and nothing, at the same time.

I LOVED Rocklin. She’s a baddass, too. A natural born leader. Classy, Intelligent, Strong & Cunning. And the daughter of one of the most feared & revered Kingpin. And though leadership is expected of her, she actually has very little control of her life. Nor truly knows as much as she thought, about it. Until Bastian. And though “Blood Over All” & “Family Is Everything” is ingrained in her, she finds herself seeking (needing), in him, the one thing her high society, cutthroat world never really gave her - 𝗟𝗼𝘃𝗲. Yes, she has her fellow Greyson Girls, and their friendship and loyalty never waiver. They always have each other’s backs, Ride or Die. But she lacks that true love, only family can bring. Until this tattooed tyrant, poor public school punk stumbles into this Rich girl’s life. And gives her it all.

This is a tale of Forbidden Love. Bastion & Rocklin go through A LOT. And though it takes time - they eventually come out as the power couple I never knew I needed and one I did not see coming. I absolutely love them! Their chemistry is off the charts, from the beginning. And holy hell is it HOT!!! 🔥 His possessiveness over her is sexy AF! Borderline stalkerish. And completely unexpected. He brings overprotective to a whole new level. He is her soothing balm, proving he will always be there for her. And even with her power, she blindly hands him the reigns & melts into submission, for her possessive bad boy protector. They help eachother discover their true selves and sense of purpose. Putting ALL of their trust into one another. She is his. And he is hers. A true King & Queen!

“𝙄 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙖 𝙗𝙤𝙮 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙣𝙤 𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙖 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙠𝙣𝙚𝙬 𝙞𝙩 𝙬𝙖𝙨𝙣’𝙩 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙡 𝙄 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪. 𝙀𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙘𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙙. 𝙄 𝙙𝙞𝙙𝙣’𝙩 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙄 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙜𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙚 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙙𝙚𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙫𝙚𝙙, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙄 𝙠𝙣𝙚𝙬 𝙄 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙗𝙚.

I literally could not put this book down. It’s addictive and all-consuming. And holy surprises! Like I said, not what I expected. But in the very best way! And now I need more. I am not ready for their story to be over. And can’t wait to dive back into the world of the Girls of Greyson Prep soon…

My heart and my brain are both mess and in complete shock! Meagan Brandy weaved such a complex and intriguing tale of secret society, power plays, action packed moments, adrenaline fuelled twists and twisted dynamics in Tempting Little Thief. I picked up this book because my tattoed bad boy punk star from the wrong side of the track, Bass Bishop. But I have fallen in love with this book for Rocklin Revenaw, the Grayson princess, for her sweetness covered in sass, ruthlessness and complete bada&&ery. They are a match made in hell and you are in for a spicy, emotional and twisted ride.

This is a book all of us OG Meagan Brandy stans were waiting for..People like us who have been obsessed with her writing from the Brayshaw world. And we all have been rabid for Bass Bishop's book! She did a tremendous job of making this book a standalone in a new world. So much of Bass' life was embedded in Brayshaw but she managed to do it all justice.

Now this plot is so complex I won't even try to explain. Rocklin is all set to rule the Grayson empire..a secret society with power and riches. She has to work extra hard to prove herself and family is life for her. Then her path collides with Bass Bishop. Completely opposite of her world. Reckless, intense and a bit crazy. She has a complicated life. Where danger, secret and conspiracies rule. The luxury and debauchery don't cover the darkness. Bass Bishop is the lifeline she needed. Gah he is everything. Oh so possessive and protective and living on the edge. Rocklin has a sweet side hidden under her fire and that side needed all the protection. And Bass gave her the world. The suspense can be a bit overwhelming sometimes but this world still have so many moving pieces. Sexy. Filthy. Intense.

This is the first in a new series by Meagan Brandy. Even though this is a standalone, you first see Bastian in Boys of Brayshaw High Series. So you may want to read that series before diving into this. This book definitely made me want to go back and read that whole series again.

Four years after unaliving his abusive father, Bastian Bishop finds himself “teaching a lesson” when Rocklin Revenaw walks by. The socialite falls for the dangerous bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks.

Rocklin the FMC I love to read about: badass, total “chews men up and spits them out” type of character, she’s controlled and calculated, a born leader. Rocklin was the perfect balance for Bastian. Feisty to his possessive. Strong to his streetwise and sneaky to his overprotectiveness. I absolutely loved their banter back and forth in the first few chapters. The jealousy scenes…!!!!!! The inner thoughts of Bastian about Rocklin had me melting…I am head over heels for these two.

This story was intense and definitely kept my guessing and on my toes. The storytelling was amazing and I can’t wait to continue the series!

I received an eARC in exchange for my honest review.

"There's a fire in her eyes that speaks to the devil buried in mine, and he wants to play."- Tempting Little Thief, By Meagan Brandy

Bass Bishops story, ladies and gentlemen!!! I just want to slow clap for this man. He surprised the heck out of me!!! The possessiveness of this man when he finds something or someone he wants. 👀 Whewwww baby! I'm here for it!

This is the first book in the Girls of Greyson series. We meet Rocklin Revenaw, and she is a spit fire! In line to take over the family business and legacy, she is not a pushover. Don't let the blonde hair fool you. This girl is fierce on another dang level and is also so possessive. Again, here for it. Lol

When these two meet.....explosions...literally and figuratively. They challenge each other, rely on each other, even when it makes sense to no one else. These two both have crazy lives, crazy upbringings, and from complete opposite ends of the spectrum. But they are everything! And the tie-ins with the Brayshaw High Series 😭, I am obsessed!

Meagan Brandy, I will read anything you write, sister. Can't wait for the rest of the books in this world!!! @meaganbrandyauthor #temptinglittlethief #meaganbrandy #bassbishop #girlsofgreysonprep #booksandchatswithnickib

Scrapping by with four stars.
I felt the main characters spent more time apart than they did together which kind of took me out of their romance.
Overall though, my main issue with the book was that the storytelling got confusing rather quickly. The simplest things got so convoluted. There are moments of information dumping followed by cryptic, broken up dialogue so things ended up not making sense. I also felt this way about Brayshaw but I could look past it because I got wrapped up in the characters and the world they lived in, which is somewhat the case here. I really enjoyed the heroine and her friends. I feel like 80% of the heroines I read are so low maintenance, “swipe on lip gloss and go” girlies, that it’s refreshing to read higher maintenance heroines. These girls are more than their looks though, they are well versed in every aspect of the world around them and will put any man on his ass. I’m really looking forward to how the rest of the series plays out. I think anyone who enjoyed Brayshaw or Amo Jones’s Elite Kings Club series will enjoy this.

Those five stars aren’t enough to protest how truly amazing this book was. It’s one of those books you have been waiting so long for and when it finally drops into your kindle you don’t know if it will actually stand up to its hype. Well believe that hype because it’s everything an more. These two characters are fire from the start and I couldn’t put this boom down for a second once is started it. There so many twists and turns and their chemistry is just 🔥! I won’t give away the plot but I will say you think you might no but you actually don’t. Meagan is an author you can not predict how it will turn out. And books like this one are the best because of it. I feel like we have been waiting for Bass’ story for so long and now that it has finally arrived you might not be able to handle it. But yo will dig in all the same and come out wrung out and in need of a smoke!

Sitting on writing this with a severe book hangover and still thinking about this masterpiece by Meagan Brandy!

Meagan is one of my favourite authors, devouring her back catalogue is one of my favourite pastimes. Ever since reading the Brayshaw boys series, we’ve all been wanting more from their boy, Bass. And man alive, did Meagan deliver!!

I can’t begin to articulate my feelings for this story, Bass and Rocklin were phenomenally written, and in classic MB style, the world building was intense leaving me with loads of questions, theories, twists and turns. The links to Brayshaw were incredible, and the fact it all came full circle was utter perfection. Being left wondering and having the entire plot of the book explained in the last 5% was gut wrenching but the ride was worth it!

Bass 4 Rocklin 4eva 🖤🖤

A good way to start this new series. I was confused in the beginning with all the different characters and families but then once it all clicked I couldn’t put it down. I do wish we could have seen more of that spitfire from the FMC at the end however I believe we will see a bit of that in the next since it’s interconnected.
Loved the unexpected plot twists I have come to expect from this author.
Looking forward to the the next couple.

Found family. Mafia. Spicy. Violence. Check triggers.

This is a book that had been years in the making. Ever since that car scene in Royce and Brielle's book I wanted to know more about Bass and the princess sitting beside him. I loved the storyline which was fast paced kept me guessing and had my complete attention from the start. I wasn't sure what to expect from Bass but he did not disappoint. Rough around the edges, a force of nature who takes what he wants and doesn't suffer fools gladly. Rocklin is everything I could have wished for him. A leader who is controlled, calculated and sassy in short she is his perfect match. There were points in the first half that were a little repetitive and I was slightly confused at times. I enjoyed the twists and seeing some of the previous parts of past stories from a different perspective. I am looking forward to seeing what is next for The Girls of Greyson.

La storia in se è bella, ti tiene attaccata fino all'ultimo. Ma una cosa che noto in questa scrittrice è che molti fatti sono staccati fra loro, senza un senso logico e spiegati in fretta e furia.
Una cosa che riscontro anche nella scrittura di Amo Jones

Holy Shitake Mushrooms!!

Bass Bishop took my heart into his rough and tatted hands, and clamped on like a vice. I dont see it coming loose anytime soon. A perfect story for the boy who stole my heart the very first time I met him in Boys of Brayshaw.

I love the timeline in Tempting Little Theif. It's not what I was expecting, but does Bass Bishop the justice he deserves.

Dark, dangerous, and jaw dropping twists, I did not expect, had me tearing through this book. I forgot how to breathe properly.

An exceptional story for an exceptional man.

"Ready or not, Rich Girl, here I come…"

"Every pretty little princess needs herself a prince. I’ll be her dark, daunting one."

Rocklin Revenaw is a prep school princess. She's used to being in charge and getting things her way. Rocklin is a total baddie and I loved her. Bass Bishop has had a tough life. Nothing has come easy to him. They are total opposites. Bass is so hot. I love nicknames and this did not disappoint. Rocklin the little thief and his rich girl.

“Give me what I earned, baby. Take what’s yours.”

The chemistry between Bass and Rocklin is off the charts. They have this hate to love vibe that I loved. I loved the side characters and hope all of the girls get their own books. This is a beast of a book at over 500 pages! So grab a drink and get comfortable. Bring on the next book!
