I am so glad I picked up this book! It was exactly what I needed and I absolutely loved it.

The characters were really well developed and I really liked all of them (especially Jules). Though not realistic it had good world building. And the plot 😩 I loved the plot and the whole idea behind the book. Now that being said this book wasn’t all good and I do think there were a couple of things that could’ve been changed

This book was really unrealistic. It isn’t as unrealistic as some other boo

This one took you for a wild ride! The Twists and turns shocked me. I finished the book going I need more. What had become of them? Are they making babies? Taking over the world?

Hero-dominated narrative

I loved seeing so much of the story from the boys' perspective! So many romances are solely or mostly focused on the girl/woman, barely touching on the love interest's POV, if it's even multi-perspective in the first place.

Fast paced, twisty, funny, dramatic, OVER dramatic (but somehow not in a bad way), sweet, sexy, angsty, angry, heartbreaking... and finally happy. I wouldn't mind seeing more of this crew as they settle into their new life, but I'm also perfectly happy

A mute, A president and a playboy walk into a bar…..

Pin-up Girl is a standalone, reverse-harem with the point of view from our heroine Elise and her 3 guys. The books start out with a prologue from Elise, but then the POV shifted to the boys which surprised med. It added some mystery to Elise’ character, as you weren’t sure if she really was as innocent and noninvolved as the book made her out to be.

Elisa is out heroine. She is a young woman who is not afraid to speak her mind or “throw down” wh

I can't believe I waited so long to read my first Blake book. I'm KICKING myself!!

We start the first half the Pin-up Girl entirely from the POVs of Milo, Emmett and Jules, three fraternity kings in Colorado. But they're so much more than what they seem, and while they may be the Kings of Campus, they are also Princes set to inherit empires that feel more like nooses than crowns. But these three are brilliant, ride or die brothers and they have a plan. They're nearly there, too, until a chance e

Absolutely Amazing!!

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this book! The characters, the plot, the twists, it all just comes together to make an incredible story! Once you start, you won't be able to put it down!! I was hooked from the first page trying to guess what would happen next. This book will take you on a ride, from laughing, to crying, to swooning, with a few cold showers in between because there are some hot fire sexy scenes!!

Elise is probably my favorite female MC from any

I am on the fence with this one, there was a twist in the book that surprised me so much it bumped the book up a whole star but aside from that it was kind of a disappointing and slow read. I enjoy darker characters and don’t mind foul language when used right but I feel like it was way to over used in this book. It was repetitive and shallow and added nothing to the story or the characters.

The characters all felt extremely one dimensional and it was difficult to like them. The ending f

Outstanding and compelling read

The author really delivered an amazing standalone novel with this book. From start to finish I was emerged in this world, loving the fierce heroine and the men she collides with on one faithful night.

While initially thinking these characters are so different, you will gradually learn how their lives are similar in a way. Piece by piece their backgrounds are revealed and you can't help but fall hard for them. Where they initially plan to keep things casual, more fe

Great standalone

This book is everything you crave wrapped up in one book. Elise gets caught up seeing something she isn't supposed to and is taken "hostage" by 3 frat guys... The secrets and mysteries that are in that house! The twists you won't see coming and some you are on your seat hoping are not true as they are but crushing. Lots of depth and heart in the characters. Multiple POVS with a lot from the guys, especially the first part. The story is told so well. Some steamy scenes... I could
This was such an interesting book! It combined a RH with a kidnapping and a secret society and several plot twists! I can honestly say that I did not see a few of the plot twists coming, and that made the book so much more fun to read! Yet, if I were to go back and re-read, I know the foundation would be there. The author did not simply change the plot for the sake of making her plot more exciting.

I liked the personalities of all of the characters, but especially the FMC. She was so confident an

Such a great book!! Elise stumbles upon Miles, Jules, and Emmett doing something they don’t want to be seen doing. This starts a series of events none of them are prepared for...especially falling in love. Even if not all is what it seems from the start.

Jules is the quintessential curvy pretty girl and has Sass for days. By the end, I loved all three of her love interests (Miles, Jules, and Emmet).

Jules though was a favorite from the start. He is the scarred bad boy you just can’t help to fall

This is now in my top 5 favorite books!! Elise is such a strong, sassy and fierce FMC. I loved the stark contrast of her 3 men Jules, Milo, and Emmett. This book sucks you in completely in the first few sentences. It was everything! You’ll laugh, cry, and be so entranced you won’t want to put this book down. It has so many twists and turns that you think you know but you will be mind blown when you finally find everything out. As soon as you finish you’ll want to go back immediately for a reread ...more

If y’all are looking for a book to break you and give you all the angsty feels look no further! This is an RH book with so many twists and turns you won’t see them coming until they are happening.⁣

I pride myself on being able to predict things and call them before they happen but a few of these I suspected but didn’t guess the depth of the twist! ⁣

Blake Blessing killed it with this book and these characters! The characters are so amazing I loved them all! Though by far Jules won my heart over

This book has just so many yes' for me. The plot holds you tight, the story is believable, the characters are well developed. Even though the book does touch on rape, torture and mafia vibes its not so intense and won't scar you if you read it. The intense situations are broken even by strong characters with strong personalities so it never feels like all hope is lost. And the book is satisfying because those characters who suffered definitely get their revenge. The only loose end left flying in ...more

Nothing made sense and I was left very unsatisfied.
Moreover, I admit I like badass characters but they were trying too hard and not enough (I never quite believed in the heroine or liked her, the Boys and their involvement with Infinity was not well developed.)
Lastly I felt all along like the guys were simply intrigue and the girl seeking protection and confort.
Nonetheless, I am pretty sure a lot of readers might like it. It was not badly written, the boys were different and the RH story while

This is a strongly written book which takes you in unexpected directions.

I'd call this a Mafia-lite story, with college age characters who are forced into a difficult position. All of the main characters have very distinctive personalities, which keeps makes them stand out from one another and stay in your head after the last page.

There's a glorious amount of angst as the characters try to figure out their new relationship and how to keep themselves out of harms way, with some dark backstories

THIS BOOK!!!!! I knew I was going to like it. I’ve been dying for it since the author started teasing it. But, OMG, I didn’t realize how amazing it was gonna be!!!! This is my new favorite from Blake Blessing. Intrigue, danger, deception, betrayal, love, sex, revenge, retribution, foursomes... it had everything and just WAS everything. I absolutely love it. And while I’m glad this group got their HEA, I can definitely see where the door could be open to get Cass’ story and maybe even (in a few y ...more

Holy smokes!! Even when you suspect what’s coming, which I did, I was still blown out of the water. I laughed out loud. I teared up. I was on the edge of my seat with my breath held. Elise is one heck of a FMC. Milo, Emmett and Jules are out of this world. Yep, they’re the typical alpha-hole we love to hate—rich, entitled, drool worthy. And seeing them fall head over heels under Elise’s spell was satisfying af. This is a really great storyline with mystery, action, revenge, hotness and obviously ...more

The main girl Elise in the beginning of the book she accidentally stumbles upon a situation she was not supposed to see in an alley behind a club!

The situation happen to bring her to The Kings of Alpha Delta Omega!! And man the men are FINEEEE🔥🔥🔥
These guys are seriously my new book boyfriends❤️
So much action, steamy moments and drama ugh this book!!!!! LOVED IT!!!

Where do I even begin with how fantastic this book was! Blake found a way to put a new, unique spine on a dark bully romance that I just couldn't put down. The book was multi POV, mostly from the guys POV, which made for a different experience then what I'm used to. I the twisted and turns in the plot keep me engrossed and guessing the whole time! Elise was the perfect combination of badass and broken while Emmett, Jules, and Milo made up the perfect alpha male. I truly hope we get more for this ...more

Blake never disappoints, and this book was no exception! The characters, the plot, the twists had me trying to find more time to read so I could get to the next page. I always love the way she connects the characters, their relationships have always intrigued me. Their dynamic, so different than what we are used to. But how each personality blends so well and adds to instead of takes away for the group as a whole. Elise is a badass with a spunky personality and I love it! If you haven't read it, ...more

Great standalone reverse harem

I loved Elise, milo, Em and jules. If your after a kickass FMC who is one feisty women and the guys are totally swoon worthy, is it weird if I also kinda liked Milos dad ha ha. The story is told mainly by the guys which was fun and different from reverse harem I have read before. The plot was great and made it really difficult for me to put the book down when I had to adult. Excited that we might get a book for cassidy. Also excited to read more of this authors book

Interesting story!

Pin-up Girl by Blake Blessing was the first book I read by this author and I really enjoyed it - especially the characters. Blessing did a really good job with character development and getting the reader involved and invested in their stories. I recommend reading Elise, Milo, Emmett, and Jules's story. As Elise is fond of saying, 'Everything isn't always what it seems." That holds true for so many things in this book. I highly recommend this book with all of its twists and tur

*Spoiler Alert*
If i could give this book more than 5 stars i happily would. Elise (FMC - a.k.a Pin Up) ends up being kidnapped by Emmett, Milo and Jules when she stumbles onto something she shouldnt have. Its dark in places but its also full of secrets and lies as well as plenty of sexual scenarios. A clever read which keeps you guessing right up until the end. Its a damn brilliant read and i absolutely loved reading it

I loved this book! It was such a gem of a book! The FMC Elise was an awesome character and watching the guys and her relationship grow throughout the book was spellbinding don’t get me wrong it’s dark in places! This storyline had me hooked from start to finish it had romance, suspense, intrigue and revenge and oh so much more!! I’m hoping to see more books set in this wonderful and visionary world that Blake has built for us in the future!!

This was so good

I didn’t really think about where I’d seen this advertised, so I didn’t remember this was RH. But the story is so good. The build up is so good. Elise is officially my new girl crush and those boys, forget about it, I wouldn’t be able to choose either. This was a well written, well planned, well executed book. I was on the edge of my seat. This is not your typical RH book, not at all.

Another amazing read from Ms Blake Blessing!

I was weary starting this, asking myself all sorts of questions:

Would I like it as much as Full Glasses, Blake's other standalone?

Would it be as good as her other two RH series (Mazza and Pretty Lies)?

Could I even love characters when I only get one book to see their dynamic?

The answer is Y E S. Move over Astrid, Perrin, and Izzy. There's a new gal in town.

Absolutely fantastic

Whew this book surpassed all of my expectations! I loved how one second you are in the middle of reading a serious conversation and the next someone says a totally unexpected funny comment.

The author did an amazing job at keeping the plot from being predictable, I loved all the twists! The characters were vividly developed. I also admire what she did with the POVs.

I 100% recommend this book!!
