Only a fool with a death wish would steal from the Townsends.

And my older brother? He’s a fool. But instead of making me an orphan with the snap of his filthy rich fingers, Royce Townsend gave my brother a choice: Three months. Three months to pay back what was owed and all would be forgiven.

You know that saying, “if it sounds too good to be true...”

Yeah, this is one of those situations.

Because the Townsends never do anything out of the goodness of their hearts.

Enter Phoenix Townsend. Beautiful golden boy. Filthy rich womanizer.


He's already the king of our new school, but I heard his name well before Ravenwood and Thornhaven merged. Still, I never trusted the rumors.

That was my mistake.

Phoenix really is a terrible, royal beast who wrecks lives and ruins girls.

And now, thanks to my brother, I belong to that beast for the next three months.

Plot Summary :

Josslyn never knew that her brother would do this to her. He has crossed the limit and now it was her to suffer through the hands of the family he had been stealing stuff from. And mainly the one person of that family who wanted her destroyed more than anyone else. Phoenix. The king of the school. The one everyone fears. And the one boy whose enemy you don't want to become. Only Jos has no choice because he already has his sights set on her.

Overall Opinion :

OMG. This author and her damn heroes give me chills!!! They are the best! I thought Saint was the best but omg you guys really need to meet my man Saint! He is downright crazy and I just love him so much!

The back and forth between Phoenix and Josslyn was the best part of this book. All the twists and that steam were also amazing. The ending has been all sorts of flustered and I am going crazy to know what happens next! Saint was my favorite series so I am just so happy to find out more about these characters and how this plays out because the author has done an amazing job of mixing up the plot lines. we get to see her older characters and I can't wait for more of that!

Highly recommended to all the dark high school bully romance loving people!
