I love books like this. It reminds me a bit of the Fallen Crest books when Sam, Mason and Logan were like one big family. This book begins with Maddoc, Captain and Royce as the kings of Brayshaw High and Raven “Rae” is the girl from the wrong side of the tracks that comes in to threaten their world since she just doesn’t have in her to bow down to them like everyone else in the school.
However, Rae ends up in the inner circle and part of their family like nobody ever has, though due to her background she continues to feel that it is only temporary and at some point she will be replaced by someone more deserving.
Raven’s mom was a prostitute and a drug addict. Throughout her life Rae’s worst fear is ending up like her mother. A lot of people think she already is and treat her like she is, so sometimes she acts like a slut or a hooker because it is easier to act that way then to let people know that the digs and comments hurt her.
Being with the boys has helped Rae quite a lot, but there are still issues. She is with Maddoc, but he does get jealous. Especially of her friendship with Bass Bishop, who used to schedule fights for her. Royce is hilarious and good friend to Rae. Captain needs her around more than she knows. There is also a big rivalry between another group which is getting in the way and a cliffhanger at the end.
