While wallowing in her hurt and anger,her attention in drawn to the handsome boy staring at her from across the table. Cut to weeks later Josie’s enjoying a day out shopping with bestie Ainsley, and spots a SUV full of gorgeous guys and IG perfect girls.

It’s fascinating in these stories how many female characters let guy’s off the hook for their behaviour because, they subconsciously want to hook up with them/ be their girlfriend. By the second half to last third, I was hooked on the story itself and while the big ending scene and cliffhanger event didn't quite hit the mark, I definitely wish book two was ready to go and can't wait to read it and see what happens. Also the twist at the end was just dumb in this setting. The plot was sub par due to it not being flushed out more. Most of the writing was based on Josie's thoughts and feeling which did not reflect a lot on the plot until about the 70% mark which was way too close to the ending to be good. If you enjoy steamy, drama-filled reads, with a dose of suspense and a cliffhanger ending then this book is for you. If you're into dark bully romance, I highly recommend this book. I can't wait for the next installment, hurry up July!And it’s not long before these two are dragging each other into a room to bang out their lustful feelings. Within months of meeting, SHE is about to marry “Steven Patterson, Elmwood’s most eligible bachelor,” Josie is caught in the throes of a mystery and she finds her REAL family and begins the process of getting to know them. Josie was pretty strong heroine, she wasn't unnecessary cruel towards future GFs, but still she had that inner strength that most heroines of bully books miss. The middle of the book is great and we find out that Josie really is not the daughter of the family she lives with, because her mother stole her from the hospital when her real baby girl died. So Josie has lived a life of a lie.

Josie is thrown into a new world where four boys who rule the school take a sudden, odd interest in her, all the girls hate her, and did I mention a pervy step-brother who's made it his personal mission to decimate her reputation? Josie - she is hella bad ass! She’s such a tough, don’t-mess-with-me type of cookie. She stands her ground and gives as good as she gets. I don’t mind a damsel in distress female lead character, but it’s completely refreshing when I find a book with a heroine like Josie. Alright....I hate read this book after the first few chapters....which is not a healthy thing to do but I wanted to finish it even if it was such a bad time.This is the first book written by J.L. Weil that I've read+. Somehow I have skipped this author... maybe that is because she has written mostly paranormal books and I am in my HS/bully romance period; however, I am surprised how much I enjoyed this book, which means that I'll try other books written by this author. This is the second book this week that I thought the second book was already out and as I go search for book 2 and find out that IT ISN'T!!!! I AM GUTTED lol. So this is my first book by this author (as I do not really care for paranormal), but this is a series I will be continuing. To me this is a classic academy, bully, reverse harem romance. Just so much fun! Josie has to move as her mom remarried to a rich man, so it is time to for new town, new school, and new people. Of course, her stepbrother is a complete jerk who hates her (conflict 1). Then she catches the attention of the Elite. They are the quintessential kings of the school. Throughout the book secrets are revealed and some are kept to make you asking what is going on. No. It shouldn’t, as this girl is an expert at letting her emotions rule her and making stupid decisions.

I apologies to the author in advance, I don't think you made a bad book. In fact, for New Adult I think this is perfect. I was just not the target audience and I don't think I ever would have been. All of my critiques work the best in the style chosen but unfortunately I am gonna let people know my true thoughts.Book Genre: Academic, Contemporary, Contemporary Romance, Dark, High School, New Adult, Polyamorous, Reverse Harem, Romance, School, Young Adult
