Publisher's Summary

West Golden - so easy to hate, yet so hard to resist. 

Don’t let that pretty face of his fool you. He isn’t the boy next door, or the kind you trust with your heart. He’s the devil in designer jeans, with all the charm of a bona fide psycho. 

Trust me. 

He swears I did something to cross him before I even stepped foot inside Cypress Prep, but it’s a lie. No one knows better than me that I’m all out of chances. One more misstep and I can kiss my future goodbye, which means I can’t possibly be guilty of whatever he thinks I’ve done. 

West marks me with a target anyway, and as this town’s football star, no one dares to go against him. His money, status, and the loyalty of his equally entitled brothers makes him seem untouchable. Only, I know better than that.  

This false god isn’t infallible like he wants the world to believe. Whenever I stare into those devilish green eyes, I see it plain as day. The chink in his armor. His one and only weakness. 

Me. 

The King of Cypress Prep has finally met his match, and taking him down just became an inside job.   

***
The Golden Boys are all smokin’ hot, but there’s only one guy for Blue Riley, which means this romance isn’t a reverse harem. Also, full disclosure, this saga does contain strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (well...eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the book for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd. 

This series is sure to give you Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill vibes, and the angst will keep you burning to find out what happens next. One-click and get lost in this series today!  

Smooches!

Bully romance with a twist!

Things I love: finding new authors to fan girl over! This book is written by 2 authors new to me and since I listened to the audiobook, it's also narrated by 3 very talented voice actors who I don't get to listen to very often.
Hold on to your seats people, because it's a cliffhanger, or more precise part one in this series. This book trope (bully romance) isn't my usual go to since I prefer adult romance over new adult, but I was offered a listener's copy for an honest review and I'm currently obsessed with narrator, Neill Thorne!

Blue is a girl from the 'wrong' side of town who has the opportunity to attend an elite high school for her senior year.
She's this bad ass chick who never gives up or gives in even though life is trying to hold her down. She's got a little sister to take care of because her parents are pieces of crap too involved in their own problems. She also has a brother, Hunter, but he's out of the picture for...reasons.

West is the head Golden Boy, one of 3 triplets. He's got it out for Blue, but only he knows why. I do love that the readers are in the know about why and not kept wondering! Great twist to the bully theme which makes this book unique for me.
There are so many supporting characters to this book that I love, but there's always got to be a mean girl group, which is headed by Parker. I want To Kill this bitch!! I mean She's worse than West who is a total prick!
But, ya know, he's got his reasons and ultimately I don't thinks he's bad, he's just got his own problems!
Waiting eagerly and impatiently for next installment of this series!!

Narration by Neill Thorne, Lessa Lamb, with cameo by Sarah Puckett was perfection!!

Not another cliffhanger!😱

This was amazing!!
Everything thing about this story called to me.
I definitely did get Gossip Girl vibes from this but the storyline was unique, refreshing and oh so engaging.

The narration was enjoyable and compelling.
The cliffhanger though definitely took me by surprise.

I'll definitely be listening to book 2 as soon as I can get my hands on it.

4.75 STARS

Bully books are my favorite trope right now and this one is my first book by these authors. It was a great book and so close to being a 5 star for me. I would have loved it to be heavier on the bullying especially in the beginning. I love the angst and the anger it makes me feel when the guys are a little mean. Still the story managed to pull me in and overall it was 4.75 stars. I especially loved Pandora and her updates. I’d consider this more of a slower burn and I hope things heat up in book two. Of course being a series you need to prepare yourself for the cliffhanger ending. While the next one is not on audio yet the ebook is available. I can’t wait to see what Blue does in the next book and I really hope she makes West work for it.

Narration was amazing! This is my first book by the male narrator and he is definitely on my one click list for narrators. Never had to think about what character the narrators were voicing.

Holy Cliffhanger Y'all!!

Holy Cliffhanger Y'all!!

My goodness this book had me back and forth the whole time. I was feeling the emotional exhaustion just as much as Blue.

West Golden and his brothers Dane and Sterling are the Kings of Cypress Prep. These triplets rule the school. They have everybody eating out of the palm of their hands and kissing their feet.. until Blue shows up and she is definitely on West's list. He hates her and even though we know why.. she's clueless which makes her fight back even harder.

The torment she is put through is life threatening and intense which made me love her a little more because she takes it and keeps on with her head held high. This book is sooo good. The pain and heartache and turmoil they put her through is enough to keep you guessing constantly and the cliffhanger made me say WTF! How do you just "naturally" end a book like that... THEN you tell me the second book isn't out yet. Oh the joys of ARC reading! ;P This was the first book by this author that I have read and it definitely will not be the last. She knows how to write a bully romance! Which is my kryptonite, I'm a sucker for a good enemies to lovers and this one checked all the boxes.

I have read this book at least 5 times since it was released and when I saw the audio was coming out you know I had to jump on it! And boy oh boy was it ever spectacular! If you enjoyed this book you definitely need this audiobook! It is amazing!! Neill Thorne, Lessa Lamb, and Sarah Puckett were amazing. They brought West and Blue and Pandora to life... seriously gave this book so much more which is saying alot. I am obsessed!!

omg like this book was so good that I was so happy the second book was already out on Audible to where I could listen to it right afterwards. Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne are an incredible due and I can't wait to listen to more of their books. Sarah Puckett, Naill Thorne, and Lessa Lamb did an outstanding job narrating this book and I can't wait to hear more of them in the second book 😀

Blue annoyed the crap out of me... the narration of West was poor sound quality... that is all! I wanted to love this story but the annoyances just irritated me.

The Golden Boys 🎧

Book 1 with a cliffhanger! I need Book 2 asap. Cypress Prep has the Golden triplets, gorgeous brothers with all the popularity. In comes Blue, from the southern side, with crappy parents and a sister to take care of. West has put an eye on her, and not for the reasons she thinks. His intentions are a little sinister, but Blue is not a pushover and I loved that. She gives as good as he gets, but still falls for his charms. It’s an intense listen with awesome narrators.

Love to Hate to Love You

The Golden Boys is book one of the Kings of Cypress Prep series, a dark HS Bully romance and also the first book I’ve read by either author.

Blue, the responsible girl from the wrong side of the tracks, earns a scholarship to the Prep school on the nice side of town. She just wants to graduate and go to college and make something out of herself so she can take care of her little sister. Instead she becomes the target of the school's Golden Boys.

West, King Midas of the Golden Boys, lays eyes on Blue at a party and can’t believe it when the new school year starts and she’s right there just for him. However, West also found something over the summer, something that causes him to torment Blue.

There’s a lot of push and pull with these two, but you know what they say “I love to hate you and hate to love you”.

Loved the nod towards Gossip Girl with P’s little synopsis at the end of each chapter.

The narrators - Neill Thorne, Lessa Lamb & Sarah Puckett all did a great job bringing the story to life.

Recommended for those HS Bully lovers. I will be continuing the series.

I received an Audio ARC and decided to leave an honest review.

Absolutely fantastic!

“My first story of this authors and wow they slayed it!! Blue and West journey was an intense one. All the angst and tension was killing me. Usually, I’m not so much into bully romances but they’re my guilty pleasure lol. TGB are the kind of story that made me love this trope even more. The line between being someone’s savior or nightmare is easy to erase if you’ve undenying chemistry like Blue and West. If you like enemies to lovers this one is a must listen to you. Also a huge shoutout to all the narrators! Each one of them was utterly amazing. I lost myself in the audio and thought I was watching a series. Fantastic job!”

Golden

Brilliant narration from Neill Thorne, Lessa Lamb, Sarah Puckett

The story has a lot of angst and really draws on your emotions. There is so much going on. Lots of steam, emotions, bullying, friendships .
Blue and Scarlet's. mother leaves them with a uncaring alcoholic father and their older brother has been locked up for a heinous crime.
