FIVE REGRET STARS for Peyton and Brock 💖🖤💖🖤!!!


This is the first book that I've read by Jacie Lennon and I love it, so I'm looking forward to reading the first book from this series.

"King of Regret" is a dark high school romance with a one-night stand trope.

Peyton is a female character who wants to get revenge on an ex-boyfriend even though it means getting involved with one of the most popular boys from school.

Brock is a male character accustomed to the popularity he has both in and out of

What a great book this story turned out to be!! Jacie Lennon definitely didn’t disappoint.

This is the story of Brock, one of the Kings of Almadale, and Peyton. This book had me entertained the whole way through, but I definitely enjoyed King of Nothing soo much more.

Brock & Peyton hooked up for revenge against her ex-boyfriend, but little did they know that this would bring all the chaos that it did from that one moment in time. A couple of months later, Peyton has 2 pink lines which complicat

Peyton and Brock's little get even, in your face thing now has some serious, as in the permanent kind, repercussions. But not just that, Peyton's ex and his MC are out for Brock's blood. Will Brock step up and take responsibility? How far will he go to protect the newest part of his circle? In turn, how far will Peyton go to protect Brock from her mistakes?

(5 stars)

We met Brock in King of Nothing, he is one of the Kings... maybe he is the head King as both Bodhi and Corbin defer to Brock on things. One night Brock and Peyton had sort of a revenge one-night thing, for Peyton a way to get at her ex and for Brock also a way to get at Peyton's ex. Win win for both parties, until three months later when Peyton reaches out to Brock. Now they have a situation, way more than just two lines on a stick.

Oh boy what a story this turned out

It was good to be back in this world and with these characters. Brock was very interesting character and he wanted to have control almost everything. One night with Peyton changed everything. They were from different world but they were so good for each other. I liked both of these characters. Also I liked her uncle Mooney.

Arc:Payton and Brock are from opposite worlds. Peyton has had a rough life getting expelled from school and her father not caring about her. Brock has good family and friends. He doesn’t struggle with money.

I loved their first interaction I could feel how attracted they were to each other from the moment they met.

I was very shocked at the plot twist I wasn’t expecting it. But it connected Payton and Brock.

When he found out he was very protective and caring towards Payton. It was sweet seeing Pa

Buckle up and find your Oh S*** Handles people—it’s an unbelievable ride you’ll for sure hate missing out on.

This story really just kept outdoing itself as I got farther into the book, then you get to 78% and things really get intense. I’m talking like NEXT LEVEL stuff being thrown around like it’s candy at a parade. I got all tangled up in knots over the bundle of many feels invading me all at once. It was turmoil sitting there feeling way too close to the end of the book for my liking, yet no

Oh man , I don’t even know how to begin here.. this book was so different than KON and I am floored with the emotions it put me through.. Peyton and Brock while growing up in completely different lifestyles had a lot in common.. Brock maybe one of the kings of campus but he’s more concerned with life after High school..

A Winning Combination!!

So many things that I love in my books; bullies, MC and mafia. Brock and Peyton came from completely different backgrounds but they crossed paths when Peyton earned a scholarship to Almadale Academy which the Montgomery brothers "owned". After being set up Peyton was kicked out of school and had to go back to live with her abusive, alcoholic father.

Three years later Peyton and Brock meet up at a party and Peyton propositions Brock to get her soon to be ex to get the drift

King of Regret is the second title in the Boys of Almadale series featuring Brock. Brock featured quite prominently in King of Nothing. He’s one of the three Almadale kings, and twin brother to Bodhi. I would highly recommend reading this title after King of Nothing, as the elements of this title run concurrently and it will reveal spoilers if read out of order.
King of Regret is an engaging and entertaining read full of twists and turns, and equal parts drama, danger and violence.

OMG! This book was AMAZING! Ugh I love the twins.
Peyton. She got felt a bad hand, but I love that it didn’t knock her confidence. She has a strong personality and that made her even more awesome.
Brock. I love the twins and Brock is awesome of the two. He could be a controlling ass, but he meant well the whole time.
I won’t say anything about them together because YOU NEED TO READ THIS! It’s so awesome and there are so many twists.

Awwww this book!!!! This book was AMAZING!!! Had me on the edge of my seat with wonder and what was going to happen next.

This is the second book in this series and it picks up right where the first one left off. How it starts off the story of Brock is a work of art!

Brock always had to be I control until he wasn’t, then things didn’t go right for anyone.

Peyton was the sweet nerd girl next door who was not from the same street as everyone else, that along made her a target.

This book was an absolute delight to read. A mafia, mc, and bully romance all in one that kept me on the edge of my seat. King of Regret follows the journey of Brock and Peyton, who finds themselves in a life-altering situation.

I loved seeing Landry and Corbin from the first book, King of Nothing. The ending was so satisfying, and I loved seeing a sweeter side of Brock. I highly recommend this book and the entire Almadale series by Jacie Lennon!

Welcome back to Almadale Prep. This book revolves around Brock and Peyton. Brock is an ice king. He rules the school with an iron fist, emotionless unless you are his family. He has the pick of girls but decides to take Peyton up on an offer of revenge against her ex-boyfriend, Brock's enemy. This night leads to life changing events for all those involved. This story was great and had me hooked from the first page. We see a different side to Brock in this intriguing story. The characters are all ...more

I enjoyed this novel a bunch. Yes, there are many curse words but I excuse it because of how good the story was. Something was always happening. I love how I was able to connect and understand each and every one of the characters. There was a lot of excitement, mistakes, and love to go around. I really enjoyed the way the book ended. It was the perfect amount of everything. I am super excited to read Bodhi and Trixie’s story next. I know for sure it is going to be a good one. I loved all the sup ...more

I guess you could say he's the leader of the Kings ( all three boys who pretty much have a hold/control) of their whole private school.

Brocks redemption....OMG...Jacie Lennon has done it again. This is the second book in the Boys of Almadale series. In the first book I couldn't stand Brock and in book two I totally fell in love with him. Brock and Peyton come from two very different worlds. Although he comes from money and she does not they both suffer from things that happened in their childhood. Brock and Peyton hook up to get it through Drake's head (her ex) that they are FINISHED. A few months later she finds herself pregna ...more

Lennon came back with a vengeance and so did the kings!

Next up for the kings is Brock who has a history of a love them and leave them mentality. Enter Peyton, who for just one night, who blows all of the other girls put of the other. Those two little pink lines from one of fun ensures life will never be the same.

Brock will quickly realize just how much Peyton means, and she realizes that maybe the cover isn't all it seems.

What a great book! Jacie Lennon definitely didn’t disappoint. This story of Brock and Peyton had me on the edge of my seat the whole way thru. Brock is my hero and definitely someone who had a lot of work to do to prove his loyalty to Peyton and only her. I wanted to smack him a few times lol 😂 for the way he treated Peyton sometimes, but than again she didn’t make things easy for him sometimes either. I’m now ready to read the next book in this series and be prepared to be amazed.

The angst, the drama, the emotions that leave you all over the place, it all leaves you wanting more in this story. I am seriously loving this series. If possible I enjoyed this one even more than King of Nothing. This has me on a roller coaster ride that I did not want to get off of. I found so many times that I was holding my breath and on the edge of my seat reading this and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for more from this series and from Jacie Lennon. ...more

This is the second book in the trilogy of the boys of Almadale prep and if I'm being honest both of them were beautiful.

It's got danger and romance and well everything you could want in a romance novel. In this we book we meet Brock the king of i don't catch feelings and well let me tell you as always he was in for a surprise.

It was a great book from a spectacular author. Thank you for letting me read the ARC it was my happiness while it lasted.

Once again Jacie brings us another great read!
Brock is one of the Almadale kings and nothing can touch him. His money, attitude, pride and loyalty to those he loves are what gets him through life, until Peyton, the girl who has no money and was only supposed to be a one night stand changes everything. This book was filled with so much angst, steam, cursing, and adult content that you can't believe teens are handling. It is an absolute must read, but you need to read King of Nothing first.

I started to read this book properly then after 10% I skim read the rest of the book because it was doing nothing for me.
Don’t get me wrong the whole whose the baby daddy storyline was different but the characters did nothing for me and the rest of the storyline was just way to unrealistic for me.
I also found the whole move from not liking each other to now having feelings way to quick of a change.
Wouldn’t recommend.
