These punks might be teenagers but believe me, this story is NOT for kids. It’s as raw, gritty, adult and twisty as it can be. This was my first Ashley Jade book and I am 100% invested in this world of rich assholes.
So, I have a HUGE thing against rich brats which is why it was a little difficult for me to get into the rhythm of the story but that lasted for about 20% after which I was all in. I read it in one sitting staying up till almost 3am to finish it. I couldn’t stop myself because I needed to know everything and I needed the info asap.
I think I liked the story bit more than the characters. There was pain, angst but there was also friendship and love. I actually really like that no one character was flawed or perfect. All of them have a lot of learning and growing up to do and it’s so amazing to be able to see them do it.
Ashley Jade has a unique voice and I am really really into it. I can’t wait for the next book because I KNOW it’ll be a memorable ride because Cole FREAKING Covington.

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.
