Welcome to their kingdom…
I never thought I’d step foot in Royal Manor again.
But four years later, here I am…back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy.
And forced to face Jace Covington.
My first friend. First crush. First kiss.
The one I left behind.
Only—he isn’t the same boy I gave my heart to.
This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous.
And he’s determined to make my life a living hell.
Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants.
They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I’d rather eat dirt.
If Jace Covington wants me gone…he’ll have to try harder.
Because I’ve never been the kind of girl to play by the rules.
WARNING: Royal Hearts Academy is a New Adult/High School series of standalones filled with drama, a touch of angst, and boys who are bad to the bone.

Wow, what a ride… I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I first read the blurb. What can I say… I am all for a good “bully” YA story. They are like cupcakes to me… I want to gobble them all up.
I knew even before opening this one, that I was in for an emotional rollercoaster and a world of angst. Of course, I was right…as ever…and I was alternating laughing, crying, swooning and cursing all throughout the story. I love it when a book can me feel so many different emotions !!
If you’re like me and you have a weakness for redeemable assholes…then you have hit the jackpot with Jace and Cole. I am still not sure, which of them I like most…they are both so bad
Not to mention their good pall Oakley, he was his own brand of awesome.
Now, this is Jace’s story….or I should say, Dylan and Jace’s story. Yes, this story did remind me of “Bully” by Penelope Douglas, which is one of my all-time favorite books. That said…it was also very different.
Dylan and Jace used to be the best of friends 4 years ago…but tragedy strikes in a big and awful way and pretty much everything changes after that. Dylan’s family takes her away and she doesn’t set food into her hometown until 4 years later.
Even though her life has turned to shit in a major way, she is still looking forward to seeing her old best friend again. He is the only thing in her life right now she is looking forward too.
But when she finally comes face to face with him and she sees nothing but hate staring back at her…she isn’t sure what the hell is going on. That look of hate is just the beginning though and Dylan can’t stop wondering what happened to the boy she loved…and still loves… But she will surely find out.
Now I absolutely enjoyed reading this book, even though it gave me a bald spot from pulling my hair. There were times when I got a little bit annoyed with Dylan and she kept giving Jace the benefit of the doubt. He was more than cruel to her but she just couldn’t stop her feelings for him.
I had to remind myself that she was just 17/18 years old. And yes…the heart wants what it wants, but self-respect and self-worth are also very important I think. But like I said…I am (unfortunately) not 18 anymore…and I haven’t been for a long time
I really had an awesome time reading this book. I am part zombie today because of it. Once I started I had to finish it…and I am glad I did. Now I really want Cole’s story, because I just feel like he is gonna be my favorite out of all…
