A family run witness protection program helps a teenager in need!

When I was a teenager I used to love this movie called “Hiding Out”, it starred John Cryer and he was a New York stockbroker that was wanted by the mob so he shaved his beard, punked out his hair, exchanged the suits for jeans and T’s and hid out in the Midwest with a distant cousin and went to high school. This book reminded me a lot of that movie. Though it was a girl that was hiding out and she is actually a teenager.

#MNGIRL: is the first full length book in 'new to me author' A.M. Brooks's 'Midwest Boys' series. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.

WOW!! This lulled me into such a false sense of security as I sat there reading about Saylor's sad turnout for her seventeenth birthday, a night which should've been a night of celebration turned out to be a girls worst nightmare.

Her family is being investigated by some of
It's been a while since I read a book that has me hooked from the beginning. This book was action-packed, fast-paced and has drama. There is not a dull moment here. What I found unique in this authors creation is the system of surveillance - The Rogue. There are so much labyrinth to understand this system and I didn't get most of the things said in the book and this didn't deter me from reading. I was amplified and more engaged with this book. The next thing what intrigued me was the title of th ...more

I picked up this book on a whim. Seriously, I didn't even read the blurb until halfway through the story. The cover and the unusual title intrigued me into indulging my time with this gem.

And a gem it was! I can't believe this author and I have never met before. This book was totally, hands down amazing.

New to me author, A.M Brooks managed to surprise me in the best way, with this thrilling and suspenseful story. The situations presented were relatable and I enjoyed the writing style, it was easy to follow and engaging. The action was fast-paced and there wasn’t a dull moment throughout the whole story. It had the right amount of angst, drama, hot moments, and sexy banter.

Saylor's life turns upside down, the day she turns seventeen. Her family is in danger and she's forced to go into hiding. Wi

This engaging story by A.M. Brooks, utterly captivated me from beginning to end. The twists and turns interspersed with the drama and angst along with the secrets, lies and betrayals made #MNGirl a definite page-turner.

I’m eager for more of Ciaran and Saylor. #MNGirl by A.M. Brooks is an EPIC book that will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARISTOCRACY!!!

REVIEW ☆☆☆☆☆

When I saw the cover for #MNGirl, I immediately wanted to read the book. I didn't even read the synopsis, which is rare for me, so I went into this book blind. Looking back, I'm actually glad that I did that. This story went places I never would have guessed.

The story begins with Saylor, the heroine, anxiously awaiting guests for

This author caught my eye when she wrote her first book and now I just try and get my hands on all her books because I.LOVE.HOW.SHE.WRITES!

Saylor has been living a pretty glamours life for a few years now and she's oblivious as to how her parents ended up with so much money. But she doesn't care because she's part of the best crews in school, she's dating the most popular guy in school .... until she's not.

One day she's living the life, the next she's running for her life! Saylor never in a mill

Holy heck! THIS IS SOOOO AMAZING!!!! A whole new series with an exciting plot and characters!
#MNGirl is the first book of Midwest Boys Series. It can't be read as a standalone with a big cliffy at the end! This is a high school, new adult romance with thriller elements. We can read this story in present time, from Ciaran & Saylor's POV. This is a very exciting and painful story!
I was excited at the whole time. Saylor is a powerful but broken girl who just want to survive. She is a new girl in t

This was a heart pounding, nail biting edge of my seat adventure.
Lies, betrayals, secrets, crimes, I mean, just a dash of every single good thing there could have possibly been. Well not good thing. But you know what I mean.
My heart hurts for poor Saylor & her family. I’m confused about my feelings for the Midwest boys though. Still kind of walking the edge.
I cannot wait for the next one, hopefully the smoke clears a little and we find out what’s really going on.

“It’s not forever. It’s just for now,”

Imagine this. The quiet night is filled with the screams and the thick acrid scent of fear. Every time you close your eyes you remember that, the night it all changed. Even your name. A jostling wakes you and somewhere in your foggy brain you know you’ve arrived to your destination. Through a tangle of fresh colored locks and sleep blurred eyes you can feel the stare coming from a blacked out truck the in the driveway you are now parked in. An

This was my first read by A.M. Brooks.
While I am not in LOVE with this book, I am definitely in LIKE and still very intrigued to find out what happens. I was getting super nervous as my kindle kept getting closer to 100% and it felt so unfinished...I guess I didn't realize that this would end on a cliffhanger with 2 more books to follow.

It took a little bit for me to get into the story, but things started happening, some secrets were revealed and such, that I am very curious as to what is goin

I don't know why it took me this long to finally read this book. #MNGirl blew my mind!
I couldn't stop reading...I finished it in one sitting. It's that good. This entire storyline was all so exciting!
I am gobsmacked by how much I enjoyed it and was entirely NOT prepared for that cliffhanger.

A.M Brooks slayed with #MNGirl. This book surpassed all my expectations and more! Cieran and Saylor have a tumultuous relationship and I initially loved her more than I loved him. But he grows on you and you can see the change when he lets his guard down. This is the authors best work to date. There is plenty of suspense, angst and this isn't your typical enemies to lovers romance. You will be intrigued with the secondary characters as I have and I definitely look forward to more from this autho ...more

Ugh..... *sighing*

One I’m such a huge fan of A.M. and this doesn’t let me down. In fact it just confirms my love for her writing style. This book is emotional and suspenseful. I literally felt like I was holding my breath on the end. I hate cliffhangers, but I’ll let this one slide. It sort of scream bully romance but then it doesn’t, so your not sure.
Losing everything you love has to be hard, but falling from such a high to a deep low has to be harder. But I’m must say Saylor does it in style.

I’m left speechless. I have a sense of fulfilment for this angsty, action packed and absolutely loveable novel. I don’t care what anyone else says, this has made the top of my 2020 reads so far! #MNGirl by A.M. Brooks is absolutely addictive!

There were things I loved about this book and things that I didn’t like, but that is just the way it goes with pretty much any contemporary romance, right?

Saylor wakes up in middle of the night of her seventeenth birthday to her mother being attacked. Along with her little sister, they manage to stop the attack and per her mother’s instruction, call an old friend of her mother’s to come help them out. Because Say’s father got mixed up in some bad stuff and left them to clean up the mess, she mus

I sense him before he touches me. His chest brushes against my back. My eyes slam shut. My traitorous heart beats to life when he’s near. It’s unfair in an almost beautifully tragic way. Enemies to lovers usually is.

#MNGirl is my first read by A.M. Brooks and mark my words it will not be my last. Brooks managed to do create this whole other world that lives right under our noses that is full of secrets, danger, and teenage hormones. This was a wonderfully written, fast paced book. It is no surpr

First off, this cover!!! GORGEOUS!!!

When the book opens up, we see a hopeful Saylor at her birthday party. Her life is sort of complicated in the money class world. She attends a private school that houses the kids of the rich. Old money and new money. But, her father has embroiled them in a HUGE HUGE act of betrayal with society. But, the only ones around to suffer the consequences is Saylor, her mother and her sister. Their lives are in major danger. So, a blast from mom's past comes in for a

#MNGirl was unlike anything I believed that it would be. I didn't spend much time reviewing the book blurb, but I was drawn in by the unique cover and title. I anticipated a sweet high school romance but was delivered such a suspenseful and emotional read. This book set a high bar by bringing such intense action and kept up the breakneck speed nearly from beginning to end.

This is not your typical YA romance! It is so much better than that! The bullying doesn't even compare to what the ROUGE operations is! This book was so amazing, I didnt want it to be over! I need the next book like now because you are left with a devastating cliffhanger thatll leave you teary eyed! I need to say this again, this is not your typical YA romance, I promise you will love this book so much you will not put it down!

I thought this would be a great book but it absolutely exceeded my expectations! I was captivated from page one! Saylor's struggles with her family and safety along with hers and Ci's long angsty enemies to lovers romance is so much more than I could have hoped for. The suspense is real ya'll! By the end of this book I was doing the ugly cry and going through tissues like crazy!

I CANNOT WAIT for Book 2 of the Midwest Boys Series! I'm officially an A.M. Brooks fan and look forward to reading more

#MNGirl was such an addicting read that will have you devouring this book as fast as you can.
Saylor's story is incredibly heartbreaking and it was horrible to watch her and her family being punished for her fathers actions and crimes.
On the night of her seventeenth birthday, her life is changed forever. Horrible events lead to her being moved away and hidden for her and her families safety. This is where she meets Ciaran and even though he is horrible to her and shows her no kindness what so e

This book has it all!! Including my tears before I was even 15 percent of the way in. The suspense that the book built, the romance I felt in my chest, I could not put this book down. My sister, quite a few times, mentioned how she couldn't get my attention while I was reading (the beauty of books, am I right?) A.M. Brooks does a great job at building her heroine's character. I felt like a close personal friend to Saylor, cheering her on, crying with her, feeling rage for her. I will be waiting ...more

Oh this book!! This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it certainly won’t b the last!

This book is honestly intense and full of action from page one and will have you holding your breath and bracing yourself for what’s to come throughout! There’s secrets, lies, danger, betrayal and a whole lot of emotion and heat!

The story I felt was unique with a storyline that keeps you guessing and asking questions throughout. The characters steal a bit of your heart and make you want

This was my first read by this author and I can honestly say, it won't be my last!

I went in to this blind, I had read the blurb but because I've never read any of her work beforehand, I just didn't know what way it was going to pan out!? The first few pages were quite sad, the night of Saylors 17th birthday and the only one to show was her best friend Oaklynn, and I really felt for her, can you imagine that? So sad, but if you think that's bad - just wait...believe me it's all abo
