When I was a kid, my best friend betrayed me in the worst way possible, ripping my family to shreds in the aftermath. She ruined my life in one fell swoop, and didn’t even have the heart to warn me.
Now, nearly a decade later, I’m back in the town I grew up in, determined to make her pay.
They say revenge is a dangerous game, but I’ve never been one to play it safe. There is

[going to heavily spoil this, so here's your warning]
This book is written like the author got all of their knowledge on high school from Riverdale and it shows. The beginning seemed promising, especially because the heroine is the popular girl at school and I was hoping she wouldn't be a complete doormat (spoiler: she is). However, it quickly goes downhill when all she does is slut shame another girl on the cheerleading squad to make herself feel better. What's worse is this is somehow ...more
Kelsey Clayton is a new-to-me author and I been pleasantly surprised by this book. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series, especially The Saint (Knox's story).
Knox appears as a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks; yet, still an enigma. Not sure how he will *spoiler alert* end up with Laney but I'm here for that pairing. Let's goooo.
Let's get down to business though with Savannah and Grayson's story)

High School Bully Romance
The Sinner by Kelsey Clayton is book 1 in the Haven Grace Prep series and can stand alone. It’s a high school bully romance/childhood friends romance with a lot of emotion, angst, and deceit. For the most part I really liked this book. I’m always itching to get mt hands on a great bully romance and this one ticked many boxes for me. In addition to this, the writing style reminds me of Ella Fields new adult romances ...more

Disclaimer: I received an Advance Reader Copy at no cost from the publisher/author. All opinions in my review are my own.
This is a story that I really enjoyed from start to finish. It really surprised me in all the best ways.
The characters were great. The reader really gets a sense of their motivations and their lives. The characters were very relatable and were written very realistically. I loved how the author shows both good and bad traits in her characters to make them authentic ...more
Now, I am off the next book in the series.
After a long time I've had my hands on some really good teenage/High school stuff. It almost felt like a story of an adult couple but the very teenage-ish elements had me believing it was rather a very impressive High school fiction.
So the story was amazing 💞💞
I couldn't even guess the extent of the betrayal it could have involved. I was really amazed at some of the very twisting twists.
Plotting too was too good. I enjoyed the banter, hot chemistry, friendship goals they gave and ...more
Kelsey Clayton is a new-to-me author, and although this may be my first book by her, it definitely won’t be my last!!
The Sinner consists of all the elements I love in a high school bully romance:
A hot AF alpha hero.
Friends to enemies to lovers.
Tons of sexual chemistry and heat.
Set in an elitist preparatory high school.
Grayson and Savannah have been friends since they were children, destined to be together forever until death do them apart. A ...more
Savannah is a high school senior but she has a secret, she is secretly poor, but not to her best friends. She pretends to be rich and wealthy since she attends Haven Grace Prep thanks to her friend Brady’s mom who pays for her school. Her dad is an immoral alcoholic who does nothing for Savannah. I seriously disliked his charac ...more
Book was honestly pretty mediocre, the two things that really annoyed me was the amount of drinking and driving and the lack of birth control with no care in the world. Aside from that I found h to be a major bitch. Acts like her childhood best friend is invisible for no reason and is a bully to kinsley but author continues to attempt to justify it because of an incident between the two 3 year earlier. And the slut shaming was awful. I was just really disappointed in some aspects of thi ...more
If you like books about High School or bullying ,this book is for you. It's a really special book that I finished in one day. First thing to note is that I know myself, And if I love the story from the beginning I know I'll just fall in love with this story and that's ... what happened.
This is a really good story. I wish I could experience it again for the first time! And I can’t wait for the second book to come out in ... two days ?! 🤐 This kind story was new to me ,as I usually don't read ...more

But Savannah is no wimp. She's strong and has a heart bigger than Grayson could ever imagine. As secrets come to light, these two will have to decide if they can survive the revelations and be together.
As high school bully romances go, t ...more

This was my first book by this author and I am blown away by how great this book was!!! I can’t wait to read the rest of this series when it releases.
If you are a fan of a High School Bully romance, then this is the book you NEED to read. I have to say this is one of my favorites in this genre.
I will be honest and say I was a little worried that I wasn’t going to end up liking Grayson….his character was tough to love throughout this b ...more

Before I starting reading high school/college bully romances, I feared that I would either not like it or that I would get too hooked on the genre. Well, let's say that the latter happened. Whenever I see a bully romance with a blurb I like, I have to add it to my TBR. With this book, since I only knew about it and didn't read any reviews, I picked it out of feeling. Maybe because I'm obsessed with this genre lately, or maybe because I'm a sucker for revenge romances, I ...more
This book has so much of what I love - the bully + second chance romance trope, that delicious new adult vibe, deeply nuanced and scarred characters trying to put the fragments of their souls back together after extraordinary tragedies befall them, and a delicious buffet of side characters who I will happily load up my plate for, calories be damned!
Savannah rules the school. Captain of the cheerleading squad, a talented dancer and gorgeous to boot. Everyone wants to be her or date her. She's untouchable as long as her secret stays hidden. It's only a few more months until she can get ...more

Good read. The hero hated the heroine for what he felt were valid reasons, but like any other bully romance, was still drawn to the heroine; and she to him. Story flowed from the hero's strong attraction to the heroine mingled with his strong dislike, and the heroine having no idea why. I liked this alpha hero as well as the feisty heroine who had her own secrets. Their chemistry was steamy. There was other woman drama which added to the angst, which I loved.
There was steam, obvious and ...more
