For once it is easy to see why so many guys like one girl!
Generally in reverse harem books, especially these bully romance books, the girls are easily hurt and very breakable while the guys are the strong alpha males. In this series, though the guys are alpha males. The heroine, Valentina is definitely the strongest out of everyone at the entire school. She is also the leader of the five of them and usually the decision maker when it comes to making plans and figuring out what they are going to do next.
This book really ups the stakes for everyone involved since the guys are no longer the Knights and are now marked like Val. And though they have more people on their side than Val originally did in book one, it is also more dangerous because like Walter McMillan years ago who tried to get the school to turn against the spades, it could end up deadly as it did for Walter.
One thing you might want to know about this series is that it is a young adult reverse harem romance and though Val does date Ezra, Jaxson, Maverick and Ryder she is never intimate with more than one of them at a time. The steamy scenes are also pretty circumspect and not too over the top. The romance is sweet and loving between Val and each of the four guys in different ways.
Though the story about the school and the secret society does take a much larger role than the romance and it is very entertaining and intriguing. I was guessing until the very last minute as to who was involved and who the main players would turn out to be. From start to finish this book held my interest.
