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. No cliffhangers.
“Is it what you want?” My hands curved her hips as my lips brushed her nape. “Me inside you?”
“You’re twisting my words.”
“What if I told you,” I said I as I slipped the button on her jeans free, “that it’s all I can think about?” It was the most honest thing I’ve said to her since her return. While she’s being plotting to ruin me, I’ve been imagining ways to get her on her back.
This book was worth the wait and then some.
Four and Ever are probably my favorite “love-hate” couple right now. The back and forth, the banter, the chemistry-it’s everything. There is so much going on in this story. Pay attention to everything. Even if it seems small! These kinds of books are my book-crack.
Jamie is my next favorite character from this book. I can not wait for his story. I’m excited about what will come next in book 2 but his story is one I’m dying to get. Some of his stuff may have been for show, him not wanting to expose how he really feels, but man do I want to get my hands on his story.
TP&TP is full of feeling and intensity, it’s clever and beautiful, and B.B. Reid checked every box for me. She will have you eating out of the palm of her hand with this story. Definitely a top book of the year for me.
