Going to a school that is designed for mafia/Bratva/and the underworld, these kids are taught to be ruthless, show no mercy, divided into four groups. Each group taught things that pertain to their station in life. It’s no picnic, it’s a dog eat dog world. And no place for the weak!
Dean, was introduced in the first book of this series. He fell for the heroine in that book Anna (The Heir) but she only saw him as a friend, and that didn’t help as the boy she fell for is a bitter rival and family enemy (long story)
So if you felt sorry for him then, then by the end of this book you’ll go through a whole gamut of emotions.
I think he just wants to be loved for himself, warts and all. But the way he goes about it is so totally wrong.
Our heroine, Cat, was introduced early in this series, a timid and scared little mouse. She was never meant to be there, her place was elsewhere (again another long story) But surprisingly she flourishes there, finding her niche and friends. She might actually finish school in one piece!
This book sort of starts not long after the Rebel finishes.
Cat did something bad and Dean sees her. So he now has an opportunity to have a little fun and make Cat very uncomfortable!
If you think this is going to be an easy ride, you are going to be in for a shock, buckle up people. It’s going to be a BUMPY RIDE!!!!
Dean finds every opportunity to push Cat’s boundaries. At some point you have to think Cat will snap! Nope! She bounces back and gives Dean plenty to think about.
Could she love him? His mother never did, and his father only cared for revenge and the Bratva.
There are so many scenes that will stay with me, moving moments and scenes that almost melted my poor kindle!!
This might be a college romance, but the scenes that play out are for adults only 😉
Oh oh oh and there is a cross over that I loved (yet another series Sophie has done, which I now need to read!) a few characters that made a big difference to how Dean processed his feelings.
And now I’m going back to read all three books to find clues for the final book in this series.
It’s going to be emotional 🖤
