At Angelview Academy, secrets, lies, and betrayal always win.
How do I know?
I’m the girl whose future just went up in flames.
The outsider from the wrong side of the tracks.
The mortal who didn’t bow to Angelview’s resident god, Saint Angelle.
He said he’d own me, and he did—every inch, from my mind to my body to my soul.
Saint even promised to break me.
That’s where he screwed

Dnf. Awful

This book was terrible. Mallory and saint are just plain unlikeable. Mallory’s chases after toxic sauce demanding he answer her questions and his response is to make sexual advances at her. He’s mean. I thought this was a reverse harem book. Nope. Gabe is nonexistent. Rosalind is pointless. Laurel is just plain awful and Mallory gets no sort of protection from the bullying. No one ever gets in trouble for attacking her. Just everything about this book is unfortunate. Long drawn out poi

Let's just say the only thing got me going on was that there was some story other than the jerk HERO's egoistic remarks and spineless sexually desperate clingy whiny excuse for a heroine.

After allllll the drama, the humiliation by HERO, his bitches, the whole school......this is what we get to read:

He chuckles, and it’s an evil sound that makes me shiver.
“That’s my little masochist,

Pretty good, starting to get repetitive though,

Like Jesus Christ, how many times is Liam going to apologize and then do the exact thing he apologized for three seconds later?!?!?!?

And how many times can the author really have Saint "surprisingly" appear. Kind of a weird criticism, but it's never just "Saint arrived" (or wtv) but it's always; "someone knocked at the door, when I opened the door it wasn't who I excepted, it was Saint".

Ok hear me out, that sounds stupid, but if it was rampant eno

Daaaaaaang. Okay straight up, I seriously love Mal and Saint. They’re absolute fire together, gasoline and a match every step of the way. While I wish we had more of Saint from book one, he did have his moments that had me swooning over him.

There are definitely some twists and turns happening here, especially toward the end. I’m definitely invested in book three and can’t wait to see how everything comes together.

Loni and Liam are still my showstealers though, I absolutely love them!

I am so glad that I read this book.

This is by far one of my favorite bully romances I've read. It has all the little things that I like in it and I'll tell you what all those things are. (sorry if this gets repetitive) This is also kind of a review of the entire 3 book series so there may be spoilers.

1. The romantic/sexual tension just keeps going with the hero and the heroine. They never fall in love in this first book (or 2nd) and they never commit to each other. All they know is they are very

The main character was meant to be this strong badass girl in theory but became such a doormat. The drama was OOT and bullying non stop yet she never reports it. So infuriating. Won’t be reading the last installment.

All bad but you should read it anyway
Three stars... (these are three very reluctant and conditional stars...)

Warning: rant ahead!

So, basically, this story reminds me of the Royal Elite series of books by Rina kent. This is because the h is weak and stupid and the H is abusive and borderline insane. However, both writers do this thing where they had this complicated back story.

Do you know the number of times that he tugged her hair back to kiss her, or he slammed his hands on either side of her head on the wall behind her to hold he

So after two books from this series, here are my final thoughts:

Mallory. I started out liking Mallory because damn, that girl had a strong backbone. But by book two, she constantly made stupid decisions that I couldn’t overlook. As the characters pointed out, and I’m inclined to agree, how could she be such an idiot sometimes. How can she be strong and yet this fucking naive. Plus, she was a shitty friend to Loni.

Saint. Not gonna lie, I didn’t like him in the beginning and I still don’t like hi

Not as good as the first one. MC really is a masochist and it's painful.

While this was still a fast read... I didn't like it nearly as much as the first one.

I don't get how the main character could still be obsessed with Saint after that and keep going back to him over and over again, with his shit attitude. Maybe because I've never been one for the "bad boys" or because I'm not interested in abusive control freaks? It was rough to read through that this time around. The first book was more und
This book really hits the ground running and I loved the suspense of the opening chapters as we learned what actually happened after the fire. The drama was so well written, I was hooked right back in again from the first page.

🪄 The Harry Potter references are top notch and Mallory is actually way funnier than I first realised. I really enjoyed her dry humour, especially when she was letting rip on the bullies and Saint.

What. The. Fuck. HAPPENED?? The first book in this series wasn’t Shakespeare, I know, but I appreciated a heroine who wasn’t a pathetic dumbass who didn’t mind getting scrappy. The throwing an apple at Saint’s head was a great catalyst to the rest of Mallory’s shitshow academic life.

And then Malice decided to say fuck that, let’s turn it around and make this chick an absolute moron. I’m not saying it’s unreasonable to get caught up in some dickmatization because it happens - I get it. But holy

3 stars for the writing style, the fact that I finished and the knowledge that I will read Eden cuz I wanna know what happens. But I had more issues with this book than enjoyment. Main problems:

Mal is a TOTAL DOORMAT. She's such a weak person compared to book 1 and it's infuriating how often she does something (Saint) then regrets it, only to do it again. And again. And again... Not only this, she's a frickin terrible friend. Her behaviour at saints bday party was awful. Ditching Loni to stay a
I don't even know how but I managed to finish this book. And let me tell you, that wasn’t easy since Mallory managed to take her incredibly high level of stupidity into even a higher one which tbh I didn't think would be possible after finishing book 1 but here we go.

I really don't understand how it is even possible that a female writer can come up with such a toxic example of a female protagonist, especially when writing YA, the genre for young girls who more often than not are inspired by the

I liked Mallory in the first book in the beginning. I assumed she would be a tough one because way she stands up to people. But then this book as well...she seems to be all talk. Firstly...Saint is a total POS. He has absolutely no respect for Mallory, constantly disrespects her even in front of people yet she continues to sleep with him.

I will never understand why she isn't interested in Liam romantically when he's the only one that has treated her with respect and has always bee

I was hoping this book would start evening itself out and not have so many horrible things happen to Mal, but it felt like the same stuff just kept happening, something awful would happen and she would be blamed, she’d be bullied, no one would do anything about it, Saint would come in and out of her life, back and forth. The one thing I actually did like that finally made the story worth hanging onto is you could see the barriers breaking down with Saint, he really did want to protect her and I ...more

You know when you see a delicious plate in front of you and you begin to imagine how good it’ll taste once it’s in your mouth, but once it’s there, it just bland, so you get kind of disappointed. However, it doesn’t taste bad so you can’t really complain about it, but the reality is that you just expected something better...Well that’s exactly what happened with Malice.
Nothing really new happened and I also found it very repetitive. On top of that, there’s nothing really going on other than the

Deliciously sinfull! So many twists and turns in the second installment of Angelview Academy.
First book not much of a Saint fan. Second book, yesss he has definitely grown on me! Who would not fall inlove with someone who is willing to hide a body for them? Still love Liam. Mallory is either incredibly strong or incredibly stupid. I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Gabe is Archie Andrews and I can't shake that image, pretty sure really I

Off the bat way to much inner dialogue which seemed like over half the book. 😒
I pretty much skimmed the entire book. Only reading the parts that weren't Mallory's thoughts and feelings. I found Malice to be an irritating and frustrating read. While there were a couple of twists I did not see coming, I really didn't enjoy this book.

I also don't like that it is only in Mallory's POV. She is also a complete idiot in this one. She keeps putting herself in these positions with Saint and her "body be

Needs growth

I dislike this book bc of the female lead. In no way shape or form is she a heroine. She what the author calls her in the book, a masochist. And to top that off Mallory, the pivotal character is unintelligent. She cannot piece together anything. As a reader, we know the same information that the heroine knows, and it’s hard that the author doesn’t allow her to make simple connections. I detest the hasty generalization made by other nonessential characters against the female character

Secrets have been revealed and the level of wtf has been upped! Saint and Mallory are still every kind of toxic. The passive-aggressiveness is real!!!

Thankfully Mallory does have people on her side, but the bullying and head games from petty rich bitches and alphahole heroes is all kinds of special. No character growth happens and I actually start to dislike Mallory in this book. Saint is just being Saint, but our girl needs therapy for her issues. She’d be a masochist for the right reasons rat

Main Character just fell…

I liked the first book, I was all for the tough girl who wasn’t unbeatable. However I feel this book the likability of her went down by a good 50%. It feels like she became denial about everything and every red flag that was painted out for her. To many that’s not super realistic especially when it comes to someone who’s supposed to be her best friend allowing her to make mistakes. Another thing is, I feel she just got more and more rude towards Liam which to me was very
Excellent, captivating story

This book starts off exactly as book 1 left off where I was left with my mouth hanging open. In book 1 we learned some significant details of the heroine's background, but in this book, all secrets are exposed(view spoiler)

I really want to love this series. I really really do. But in bully romances I NEED the female character to fight back and give as much as she takes. But I don’t get that with Mallory. Don’t get me wrong, she’s had some witty comebacks but that’s about it. I’m not even hooked on Saint like she is, because in my eyes he’s an irredeemable prick. Or I just can’t relate to her, because no man’s d**k game has ever been able turn me into a mushy idiot to the point of ignoring what a straight up a*
