bookshelves: dnf

This is without a doubt one of the worst books I've ever attempted to read.

Y'all I made it FIVE chapters and this is what I got so far:

1.This "super rich" academy is literally called Burberry Prep.
Let's just slap designer names on shit and hope it sounds rich why don't we.

2.The popular kids are called Idols, yes, you read that right. Idols.
My eyes are so far in the back of my head they might never come back.

3. The regular kids are called Plebs...as in plebians.
I couldn't make this shit up if I tried.

4. These kids are FIFTEEN and the author is making them out to be men. Full grown, panty dropping men.
Listen, I was far from a saint at 15 and I'm not proud of the shit I did but my god I AM SO UNCOMFORTABLE.

5. The fifteen year old "bad boy" is introduced to the MC by walking out of a janitor's closet he just had sex with a senior in.
Lemme know what freshman boy will ever dick you down good enough that'd you risk it all for. I'll fucking wait.

6. Here we go, ANOTHER fifteen year old boy has his arms sleeved WITH tattoos, facial piercings, and the most chiseled abs you've ever seen.
*insert Jackie Chan wtf meme*


....and that's just the first five chapters.

Needless to say, this a hard NO from me and we didn't even get to the plot yet.

message 3: by fffrank! (new)

I'm so grossed out 🤢

This could literally read as an enemies to lovers ADULT romance, but I couldn't stop thinking how wrong this was that they're only fifteen.

fffrank! Also, if they act like this at 15, they should be told that it's not how you should act

A few times I actually had to stop and just think "is this actually real?!" You'll definitely find some amusement with this one, thats for sure!


message 15: by Cynema (new)

Cynema Okay, that was flat out hysterical ... I've read some really unflattering reviews of this book, but it's so bad that I want to read it for laughs even though I know I'll feel exactly the same as you. Where would I be today if I'd known boys like this when I was 15!! Sure this ludicrous fiasco isn't a comedy? ...


message 16: by Giovanna (new) - added it

Giovanna Khouw I dont understand why she didn't just make it a college book. Wasnt there a moment during writing this book where she should've gone "huh, this isn't making much sense."

Honestly, if you need some amusement this might be able to do it haha! And I would love to know the same, I sure as hell wasn't in school with any sex gods at 15 🤣

You would think?!?! I was planning on sticking this out and finishing it but it felt so WRONG knowing they were 15...like I don't get how anyone during the writing process wasn't like "are you sure this is the right age group?"

Maile This is honestly one of the best reviews I have seen let me tell you. But!! I’m also a bit flabbergasted!?!? Like I’m not sure what the author was thinking.... 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️

You woul..."


I was thinking about reading the book, it does have kind off a high rating, but I think I would feel the same thing. I would feel really dirty reading about a 15 year old (and not in a good way). I wonder who gave the book a high rating. It's a same you cant see what age gave what rating (like on IMDB)

Hahaha thank you!! I honestly am still just shocked about the age group of this book 🙊

Yeah I just totally couldn't overlook it. I think even if I was still in high school I would've struggled with this because no 15 year old I ever knew acted this like 🤷🏻‍♀️

I would absolutely love to know. The second I read the name it starting going down hill 🤣


message 33: by Melliott (new)

Melliott Were they trying a contemporary takeoff on The Outsiders? (I wondered because of Idols and Plebs...) Sounds dreadful.


message 34: by fffrank! (new)

fffrank! I'm literally screeching 😂😂😂


message 35: by Rea (new)

Rea K I read a lot of teen fiction as a teenager and (being that I was a quiet, shy, reasonably well-behaved kid) I'm convinced that 90% of ya books are written by adults who want the sensationalize being a teenager like it's a sordid party scene because I still can't tell you who was hosting the parties when I was in high school.


message 36: by Taภya (new) - added it

Taภya I thought the same! Stop reading when the guy walked in with tattoos etc...... just weird like I said I'm my review I kept seeing them older, then it's like hang on they're 15 😂😂 NO THANK YOU lol.


message 37: by Chanel (new)

Chanel As a twenty year-old it would be very hard for me to imagine someone fifteen even sixteen and younger as some sexual god. I get the bad goose bumps just thinking about it.

And that is the beauty of negative reviews haha, sometimes they're even more compelling 🤣


Jackie Woodburn I loved boys of brayshaw and hopeful of this one too . Try havoc by the same author .
