From USA Today Bestselling author Jennifer Sucevic comes a sexy, new bully romance.
Welcome to the world of Hawthorne Prep. A seemingly idyllic school where ivy clings to the thick stone walls and a wrought iron gate keeps out the townies who can’t afford to foot the hefty price tag.
A couple of months ago, the idea of being ripped away from my life in Chicago and plunked down in the middle of nowheresville, Wisconsin was unimaginable. Laughable, even. And yet, here I am, forced to wear a short plaid skirt and navy blazer to school every day. The only silver lining is the brand spanking new G-wagon parked in the weathered brick drive. All I have to do is make it through senior year and then I’m off to college.
Shouldn’t be a problem, right?
In a school like this, flying under the radar is impossible.
There’s a king who presides over the kingdom and he’s set on forcing me to my knees so I can kiss the crown. Unbeknownst to me, being a Hawthorne in this town comes with a price and he’s going to make damn sure I pay what’s owed.
*King of Hawthorne Prep is a mature bully romance intended for audiences over the age of 18*
The best book I’ve read so far. Yes the guy was starting to get on my nerves but when you read it threw it has a good ending. I cannot wait for the third book!!
Hold up, theirs more right? Like their wasn’t even an epilogue
No trigger warnings
So. I’ve read my share of bully romances and have enjoyed them, but I have some rules that they can’t break for the bully and the bullied to get together in the end. One of those is that the bullying can’t include sexual assault. That includes coercing sexual acts that the bullied character may end up enjoying but only did so because they felt they didn’t have a choice. This book includes that, and I had to stop reading because it was a personal trigger for me.
I’ve really loved all of Jennifer’s other books, so I had high hopes about this one but was really let down. This kind of content might work for some people, but if it’s going to be included it needs to have a trigger warning for those of us who can’t safely read sexual assault scenes.
