Rich Prick by Tijan–Review

5 Stars

Tijan is one of my unicorn authors. I want to inhale every word that she puts in front of me. Her Fallen Crest series is one of my ultimate favorites. Now, Rich Prick is about Blaise and Aspen, but there are ties back to Fallen Crest and her Crew series. Blaise is Cross half-brother and Aspen is the little sister to Nate (remember that Nate whose BFs with Mason, but lives with Logan? Yep, that Nate). It is amazing how she seamlessly melds these different stories together.

For different reasons, Aspen and Blaise both have familial issues and they handle this home situation differently. Aspen is the quiet, almost unforgettable character. All she wanted to do was finish her senior year the way she started it, quiet and invisible. She is secretly counting down to graduation, so she can move into the next phase of her life.
Now, the problem with wanting to remain invisible, is that someone, somewhere will see past that wallflower status and see the person. Aspens person was Blaise. He was able to look past her invisibility and see the real Aspen. The girl who did not want to say much, but internally had a worlds worth of feelings, thoughts, and emotions just waiting to get out.

For a high school senior, Blaise was a powerful and present character. He also had familial issues, but for completely different reasons. His form of communication and expressing himself is through his fists which have an incredibly short and easy to start wick. He is angry, for many different reasons, but notices early on that the one person who can calm his temper is Aspen. Like a flower growing towards the sunlight, Blaise finds himself gravitating to Aspen and wanting to spend his time with her.

I was completely invested into the three main relationships going on in this story. 1) Aspens personal story, 2) Blaise personal story, and finally, 3) their story together. Rich Prick makes me feel ALL the feels. From the multiple and sometimes sudden twists and turns, shocking jaw dropping moments, angst and drama, and hidden secrets that are slithering through the main characters like a 20-foot anaconda.

As I mentioned before, the Fallen Crest/Crew series were brilliant, but there is only one book that is semi equivalent to Rich Prick and that is Ryans Bed. I was ruined after finishing it with the hardest and heaviest book hangover to date. Well, Rich Prick, is right up that alley. When the end was in sight I was panicked and scared. I did not want this beautiful story to end. The story with main characters who were so realistic I had to keep in mind, that they were pen and paper characters, not a true to life story. My heart is sad that its ending, but happy/ecstatic with the chance to have gotten to know them.

Thats all fine.
I mean, I have nothing to do with them.

Until I saw a girl kneel before him.
Until I couldnt look away.
Until he caught me watching.

He only knew how to get, command, and demand attention. I knew how to do everything but that.
And this is our story.

Teaser:

You get off on watching? Is that your thing, or is it just my cock you like?
I was heading to my car after school when I heard him.
My heart stopped, almost literally. If I looked down, it was likely the entire contents of my stomach would be at my feet.
Hed found me.
I looked up, and Blaise DeVroe stepped out from behind the truck parked next to Maisie. His hand was on her back end, and he waited there, in the shadows (thank God), his head tilted to the side.
He looked so good, so delicious. All hard edges and angles. That jawline. It could give me razor burn between my legs, and Id climax just by breathing hard.
I saw the flare in his gaze and felt his edge. I had to rein in a bit of my inner weirdo.
Id heard about what happened that morning. Hell, Id witnessed it myself, but then Id also heard all the whispering about it afterward. It spread through the school like wildfire. And what they were saying hadnt been kind. Most bets were that Blaise was going to be kicked out of school. Others said Zeke was going to have him beat up. Still others thought Zeke could have him arrested. How that even made sense, I had no clue.
But I also saw those guys interact through the rest of the day as if nothing had happened. Zeke still smiled at Blaise, even if he seemed more cautious. Some people said there was a rift forming in school. But again, why did that even matter? We had a week and four days left to be here. Then it was summer.
You talk? His head cocked forward. There was a slight bark to his words.
I jumped, then gathered myself. Oh. Um色
Shoot. I bit down on my lip. What did I say here? Okay. I had nothing, so I guess honesty was the best policy. Besides this guy playing a major role in my schoolgirl fantasies, I couldnt deny that I was a little scared of him right now. Id always felt there was something more in him, a wild edge, but no one ever said anything. Thered been no rumors about it, until today.
Today, everyone had seen. Today, everyone was talking about it.
I, uh色 Screw it. I shrugged. It was live porn. What did you expect?

Three things my mother acquired when she became engaged:

Beautiful, brooding, and untouchable.

It was perfect
Until it wasnt.

Now, I have to face him again, and the boy I used to know has become the man who loves to hate me.

Tell Me Pretty Lies by Charleigh Rose–Review

It seems to be that there is a running theme for 2019-2020. Bully romances. Now in real life, I dont condone bullying, but in my fantasy book land, I love bully romances. Did I also mention that I love stepbrother romances and no I dont have a stepbrother, I just love taboo stories as well. Charleigh Rose sent out another bully romance, Tell Me Pretty Lies, that focus on Thayer and Shayne.

Ms. Rose is known to have characters that have a labyrinth of emotions, angsty and dramatic. She never disappoints in that sizzle effect of her characters. There will be full on steam, so you might need a rag for your glasses.

We first meet Thayer and Shayne after having to attend a funeral. Despite having over elevated emotions from the day, we are introduced to who Thayer and Shayne are together. Something happens and the story takes off from there.

“He’s just a boy you used to know. You will not fall apart at the sight of him.”

Shayne is not only the unfortunate recipient of being bullied, but only has herself to rely on. Thayer is an over privileged teenager with little parental guidance and broody as all get out. The thing about Thayer is he has so many layers to his broodiness, how does one tell whats real and whats not real?

Charleigh wrote a book that displayed this back and forth tension between them all the while maintaining teenage angst and steaminess. Despite this, I felt that I wanted just a wee bit more. Possibly some more nuggets of information regarding their pasts or why their parents were so sketchy and secretive and maybe, just maybe a second epilogue.

“Finding a love like ours is like catching lightning in a bottle. And I’m never letting go.”

Another huge positive in this book is the secondary characters. Specifically, Holden. Oh my gosh, that guy just had me hooked and secretly Im hoping, praying and crossing everything I can to get his book.

If angst, drama, steam all rolled up in a teenage, bully romance is your jam. Tell Me Pretty Lies should be your next read.

“So innocent. So pure. But they don’t know what you like to do with your stepbrother in the dark.”
