Libby’s hands lift to the two ribbons at her side. Her chin dips, eyes sultry as she tugs the ends to let the sides of her wrap dress fall away. Her fully naked body is presented at the perfect angle, her form impeccable as usual.

I sometimes wonder if there’s a back room at the debutante academy for a more advanced style of curriculum.

“Come touch me,” she purrs. “Arthur won’t play, and I’m bored without school to keep me busy.”

I should walk away. But then again, if I hadn’t intended to let off some steam of my own, I wouldn’t have come in the first place.

She watches me with a satisfied smile as I cross the room, shedding my polo shirt on the way. Her lithe fingers lift to my pants, eager to set me free before I can so much as kick my damn shoes off. 

What we do isn’t love. It isn’t even lust. 

We sleep with each other to fill our voids. We fuck to make one semi-palatable trust fund kid out of our messed up incomplete halves. For the time it takes to lose my load in her, I feel at ease.



The saga continues in Rich Riot, the third installment in this author’s Arcadia High Anarchists and you will not want to miss out on this fast-paced, entertaining read!  Often times stories start to lose their luster by the 3rd book, but not so with Rich Riot.  Picking up right where Bad Boys left off, I was immediately pulled back into the world of country vs. city and I was loathe to stop reading, but apparently being an responsible adult is not optional. Nonetheless, I finished this high school bully romance in one day and I am already counting down the days for the next book.  

Lacey remains a likable heroine who is loyal to a fault and still straddles the line between city and country.  Family dynamics play a big role in this book and it is admirable how her love for her brother Colt and her friends never waiver.  I really love how with each book, Lacey continues to grow as a character - to gain maturity and wisdom as she searches for just where she belongs - amongst the rich and privileged vs. the country elite.  Bullying is still rampant in both worlds and I love witnessing Lacey’s journey of self discovery.  As for Tuck, I still really like him as a character and I think he is a good match for Lacey. He is a steadfast friend and a caring boyfriend in the face of all the turmoil that is surrounding them. 

This book also features chapters not only told from Lacey’s and Tuck’s POVs, but also from Colt’s and Greer’s standpoint.  I have always loved Greer and I enjoyed discovering more about her and seeing her character further developed.  As for Colt, I am still not sure how I feel about him.  You cannot doubt his love for Lacey, but I am still reserving judgement.  That being said, I loved getting a glimpse into the inner workings of his mind.  Overall, I really enjoyed Rich Riot with the engaging characters and the progression of the story.  I am looking forward to seeing where the author takes us next!

I received an early complimentary version of this book.
