I have trash taste in TV and books, especially when I'm stressed out or overwhelmed. I have a lot on my plate so reading allows me to take a break and relax into another world.
They rule my new town, my school, and with more money than God, there’s very little out of their reach.Audible
Four gorgeous, perfect, scary boys. There used to be five, but one of them died, leaving a fifth position that I now fill.
I didn't ask for this. I didn't want to be part of this billionaire-boys-club. But no one cares about what I want.
Sebastian Beckett is the worst of them. Their leader. He draws me in, and strips me of every defense I have. He calls me Butterfly, but it's not a pet name, it's a threat. Beck wants nothing more than to break my wings, pin me to a board, and watch me writhe.
He wants to see me broken. Body, heart, and soul.
And what these elite want, they get.
Only they've never met Riley Jameson.
Let the battle begin.
This dark contemporary romance features one girl and four sexy, dangerous boys but is not a reverse harem.
Recently, I read the Dark High School Romance trilogy by Jaymin Eve and Tate James. It's a series about a girl, three brothers, and life in high school I've never experience. In fact, I doubt that anyone has experienced life like this.
Recently, I've read a couple of series where kids are pretty much raising themselves, high school is crazy cutthroat, and the adults in the world can't be counted on at all.
When I started Broken Wings, I was pleasantly surprised that the author jumped right in. There wasn't a chapter or two of unnecessary backstory – we hit the catalyst (is this the correct word?) right away. The lead female character, Riley Jameson, is in a terrible car accident and her parents are killed.
But was it an accident or was it murder
What I Love About Broken Wings
The female lead isn't a pansy. I recently read another series and couldn't finish it because the female lead allowed others to bully the crap out of her and she waited for the men to get even for her. Screw that crap!
This series has two narrators, male and female, and they do a great job.
And it's entertaining. I loved Riley and her guys. This was a fun world to get lost in.
What I Didn't Love About Broken Wings
So, this isn't a knock of the book, it's more about me. This book is completely unrealistic. There were moments when I was saying to myself, “what the…?,” as the story unfolded. But the over the top moments (adults setting up kids for blackmail, female students using sex to gain power in highschool – it's HIGHSCHOOL!, and no repercussions for violent crimes) did add to the entertainment.
There is one warning I need to offer and I hope it doesn't stop you from reading this book if this is your thing…in the first book, there is an attempted rape that had me shook. The authors, Jaymin Eve and Tate James (and the narrators) did a fantastic job of pulling me into what was happening. This may be triggering for some – but know that the retribution was swift.
This series was entertaining enough for me to purchase all three books and. I know that I'll listen to them again. A nice, guilt-free break from day-to-day life.
