Borrow the bike. Win the race. Collect the cash. It should’ve been an easy job. Ran out of town with a broken leg and a lawsuit, my mother’s latest flame swoops in like a knight in gilded armor. Blackwood Keep is a place I don’t belong, and I’m not the only one who knows. To the boy across the hall, my savior’s only son, I’m a stray looking for a bone.
He’s lord of the manor.
King of the academy.
And number one on my shit list.
I have no intentions of becoming a happy family with the social climber and her wild daughter. A bottle of Jameson and a cracked skull gets my problem shipped to reform school, but I didn’t bank on her returning.
Four’s out to get even, and she almost had the perfect plan: expose the privileged kid moonlighting as a gangbanger. She’s smart, but she’ll have to be smarter. Sending her away won’t be good enough this time. I’m going to have to tame the little troublemaker. To the girl across the hall, the one without a name, I’m nothing without my silver spoon.
She’s lady of the trailer park.
Queen of the swamps.
And my new favorite pastime.
–The Peer and the Puppet is a standalone romance, however, the series is one story. The plot introduced in Four and Ever’s story will continue in the following novels. Content suitable for 18+.–

I was very excited to read this amazing book. B.B. Reid is on the list of my favorite authors. Her work is not new to me, so I knew what to expect. I LOVED the Stolen Duet Series, The Bandit, and The Knight

The Peer and The Puppet is book 1 in the When Rivals Play Series, by this amazing author…I loved the story from the very first start. It’s an amazing and unique story, with amazing characters. Very well written, and very well build, the book tells the story of Four and Ever.

Four is a unique seventeen years old girl, and I say unique because, most girls her age do girls stuff, Four loves to race motorcycles.  Her dream is to become a professional racer. Her life changed drastically during one of her race when she is forced to lose the race. Now her mother thinks she is in danger and decides to drag her along with her, moving with her boyfriend Thomas…And his son, Ever. 

Ever wants to get rid of Four and her mother. He hates both of them and makes everything possible to hurt Four. He wants his mother back. He is king of the high school, he is loaded in money and everything he wants, he gets.

I have this same tank top Zac is wearing.

Four is a bad@ss girl but Ever is even more bad@ss. From the first time they meet, they spit flames at each other, they hate each other. Four kicks Ever @ss two times, she doesn’t back down, and she fights Ever every time.

The secondary characters were amazing and I really hope that Vaughn and Jamie get their own story. The book had everything: angst, drama, secrets, mystery, unpredictable, action, fun, and hotness.

Imagine similară

I was immediately hooked by this story, couldn’t put it down. You will be blown away by this book. Definitely one of my favorites this year and most certainly one of my top favorites all time.

I highly recommend this book!💝
