My next read. I know I am reading these books fast… I’m kind of glad. My current read is “Brutal Prince”… I kind of think Prince is annoying!!! I’m trying to figure out if he is RAPIST or NOT! I’ll know soon enough hopefully! Or if he’s just a mean douchebag…
He wasn’t that brutal, his best friend, hmm?
**Spoilers*** few here and there**
Okay, one I like to state is that dang I feel bad for Addy. She didn’t have to die at the hands of Marcus. He rapped and what it looked like he strangled her or choked her with a belt—poor girl. Bad enough, he killed Jessica too and raped her. Addison’s best friend and Briar girlfriend at the time.
What was messed up about Jessica was Briar and everybody, including his dad, thinking that he (Briar) was a rapist? But as I was reading this book. I was like Briar can’t be a rapist, for some reason I kept thinking that. But also mentioned how Marcus = Murder. Briar = rapist. But what I thought in my mind. & what came true in this book was everything lead to Marcus. He was the rapist and murder. It was something that had me like, “I think Marcus was the one who killed Indi’s mom and raped/murder Jessica. Especially with Indi’s mom… when they couldn’t find any fingerprints, I was like YEAH that had to be Marcus…
I now remember what had me thinking it was him when he mentioned to Briar. That Indi looked familiar. A lot of things, Briar never took notice. But his dad took note of a lot of stuff that Briar didn’t. Heck, not even Indi or Addy, knew that something was up with Marcus. I felt something was wrong with Marcus.
It took for Briar’s dad to talk to him at Angels Fall, where I think 🤔 Jessica was killed at or something can’t remember. But his dad was the one to show Briar that looks son; your best friend is the devil and a bad seed. Then learning about him killing/ no learning that Marcus was the one that rapped Jessica then plan to do the same to Indi. I know it had hurt him and then had to be there with Indi and find a way to get Marcus from Indi. No Indi from Marcus. & getting rid of that gun. I was glad in the end that they ended Marcus and his (Marcus) dad Brandon got what he deserved too for all that he and his son put everybody through. Not only that, learning that Brandon had something to do with Natalie (both; Briar & Marcus) mom. Oh, that also a bad one, Briar, learning that Marcus was his brother. I had to wonder who is the oldest were they, twins. I can’t remember their ages. But I think they were in the same grade or one was behind each other since they all were in a class with one another.
But in the end, every TRUTH came out, which was a good thing. Especially with what happened with Jessica, Indi (mom), not only them but Addy too. Poor, girl I wish she would’ve left with her family. But she wanted to stay like a fool that she was smh!
Besides that, I didn’t want Marcus to die. I wanted him to rot and see what will happen to him in jail for what he did to those women/teens… but at least Briar got his wish. He murder (well Indie) killed Marcus, and the police didn’t have to get him (Marcus). Because both he and Indie did. I was glad because that boy was sick.
Lavish Prep should have been a fresh start. A new school for my new life after my last one was so violently torn from me.
But I was barely here an hour before I was pinned down in the woods by a savage.
I should be glad I escaped, but I can’t stop thinking about the boy who thought he could lay his hands on me.

Well I’ve got news for you, Prince Briar. I’ve got nothing left to lose.
No reason to back down.
Beasts like you should be locked up, and I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure the world sees you for the brutal monster you are.
Just when I thought my life couldn’t get more f*cked up, a little rabbit found her way into my woods.
I lost control, again. If she hadn’t been such a fighter, that would have been the end of her.
I thought it was the end of everything.
Until I showed up at school Monday morning and saw her.
My little rabbit’s decided not to run. She’s decided to fight.
But there’s no way she’ll make it out alive.
I thought I was a changed man . . . but I’m nothing but a beast, after all.
Come here, little rabbit. It’s been a while since I’ve destroyed something as innocent as you.
