Bad Bad Boy was my first book by this author.
It took me quite a few chapters to get lost in the pages. It seemed that the setting up of the story went on and on but once the rats showed up in Richstone it was much more enjoyable.
Liam is from Sharrow, a town on the wrong side of the river but he was looking for a way out not only for himself but his friends too. When that opportunity arises he’s willing to do whatever it takes to snatch it up to give him and his friends a chance at a better life and it just so happens that an elite academy has offered a chance for a group of Sharrow kids to go across the river and attend the prestigious school.
Phoebe isn’t at all what you would expect. She may appear to have a life of luxury and no worries but things aren’t always as they seem. She’s full of sass and has too much fire inside her to become nothing more than a trophy wife.
Before any of the kids from Sharrow and Richstone meet each group plots and plans for how they intend to deal with one another but you know what they say, even the best-laid plans can go wrong.
The moment Phoebe and Liam meet there’s a spark between them. They develop a quick friendship and from there it becomes more than either of them imagined. I loved that Phoebe and Liam both had a group of friends that were incredibly close; they were more family to one another than friends and I loved the dynamics between them.
I enjoyed this book and the characters and I’m looking forward to finding out what transpires in Bad Bad Girl.
