My thoughts on the whole series not just book 1

Every time I remember the fact that I absolutely HATED this series but somehow read all the 5 books makes me think that I'm a masochist.

The language is so vulgar in some parts that I needed my eyes and brain bleached. The word c*nt was the most overused word in this series. Also... I never want to see the words ' swollen and c*nt' in the same sentence ever again in my life.

The bullying was horrible. So so horrible that I couldn't understand how the heroine rationalized it all and ended up falling in love with them. I mean.. she somehow convinces herself that they are good people because while they made her life fucking miserable for...(was it 1 or 2 years? I forget), they are all good guys coz they never raped her.....

10/10 recommended

This was amazing. I loved every second of it, dark and angsty but also funny and sweet. Can’t wait to see what the rest has in store

Incredible. Had me at page 1

This book has everything and steamy sex scenes. Whoa!! It's not like all the rest bully books in the sense that you don't have to go through all of it which I loved. Very refreshing and uniquely done. I'm just so so sad that I have to wait for book #2.

Great book

Bully romance with phenomenal characters. These kids don’t play like high school kids. I’m charmed by their focus and camaraderie. Five stars

Had to re-read to refresh my memory for the sequel. Since I am certainly not in the target demographic for this book (young/new adults) I found more to bitch about then they would so I guess this review will be to the older readers.

1. These are high schoolers under the age of 18, mostly just under 18 or in the case of the heroine a junior and very 17.

2. They act and are portrayed as being baddasses and the heroine spends the entire book making sure the reader and everyone else doesn't forget this fact.

3. Back to the high school, I kind of had a bit of trouble reconciling the fact that these very adult looking and acting characters are having chocolate milk in the cafeteria.

4. OTT Characters.

Each male character (there are 5) is described in such a way as that the whole of the group could be in a K-Pop band. Everyone has tattoos (nevermind that they are under 18) that are extensive enough to show on any bit of skin not covered up, including the neck.

The guys are all either tall, shredded, very attractive, well dressed, everything, and each guy is a "type".

Hael - the quiet one with scars and voice damage that causes him to have a kind of deep whisper for a voice. He is the one who is the most up for violence, but he has a hidden "soft" side.

Aaron - the former "Disney Prince" with blonde hair, and blue eyes who used to be preppy and "normal" but has shed that to become a bad boy in the group. His father is dead and his mother ran off to parts unknown leaving him with his 5-year-old sister and 2-year-old niece.

Victor - the 6'5" leader of the group. He has his reasons for doing things and isn't always transparent about it. He is the main love interest. He is the baddest ass of all the baddasses. He lives with his father who is portrayed as a drunken, overweight, easy to dominate and order around kind of lout. What Victor says goes. Victor is always dark and broody. He rides a Harley.

Oscar - The metrosexual guy who wears glasses and suits that still allow his blended neck tattoos to creep above his collar, thereby making him all the more baddassed. He spends the book being the "secretary" of the group, always on his iPad, making the plans set by the leader happen.

Callum- the "Vice President", just about equal in looks and status as the leader, a bit lighter in attitude, a bit more fun, drives a "classic Camaro". He has blood red hair cut short on the sides but long on the top.

It is very easy to see each guy as a member of some baddassed boy group. Like I said, I am not in the demographics. Keeping them all so unrealistic just keeps me from taking the book too seriously.

Then you have the heroine, Bernadette Blackbird. She has long white-blonde hair with pink highlights? Ends? Not sure, but there is a lot of pink with the white. Bernadette's figure is 38-28-40 with, and I am not kidding size "G" boobs. She's just 17. She spends the book making sure we all know how baddassed she and the guys are, all the while making sure that we know that they are all poor as dirt, and don't care about the future, that stealing is her only way of getting anything decent.

So, yeah. I got tired of the whole not caring about the future, so why care about what we do today. I got tired of the whole, “make way for our baddasseness” scenes.

Now, I have to say that the sex scenes and tension between the characters was pretty good. IF I was able to forget that they are just kids.

Yet...yet....I couldn’t stop reading. I just have to read this series to the end.
