Rich Prick, an all-new captivating, angst filled romance by New York Times bestselling author Tijan, is available now!
GENRE: MATURE YA / NA ROMANCE
He walked into school on his first day and owned it.
I guess that’s what happens when you’re a prick, rich, and you’re best friends with the ruling school’s king.
Also didn’t hurt he’s drop dead gorgeous.
That’s all fine.
I mean, I have nothing to do with them.
I’m a loner, invisible, and that’s how I wanted it to be.
I was even proud of it, until I wasn’t.
Until I saw a girl kneel before him.
Until I couldn’t look away.
Until he caught me watching.
His name is Blaise Devroe. My name is Aspen Monson.
He only knew how to get, command, and demand attention.
I knew how to do everything but that.
And this is our story.
*Rich Prick is a full 100k standalone.

I’d done my research. Zeke Allen’s cabin was set a good ten miles away from the nearest neighbors. I should’ve been in the clear to sneak onto their land, do a little freestyle camping, and listen to the party sounds like the loser I was. But noooo. I was about to get company.
As I snuck out of my tent, and realized who it was, I almost crapped my pants.
It was Blaise DeVroe, holding hands with Mara Daniels.
As popular girls went, Mara Daniels was one of the nicer ones. She was on the dance team. Dark hair. Shorter, but athletic. The problem with Mara was that she was friends with the other popular girls. Some of them were nasty—hence the reason I wasn’t friends with them. Not that they’d tried to get to know me. Not that I even registered on their radar. But then again, that’s what I did.
I didn’t engage. I didn’t attend. I was on the edge. I was the invisible girl, and here I was, being the invisible girl once more, but man…
When I saw it was him, and then saw how his hand went from holding hers and guiding her to a tree to slipping around and grabbing her ass, something came over me. I couldn’t retreat back to my tent. I couldn’t even stay hidden behind a tree and just listen.
I know, I know. This was all sorts of wrong, but Blaise was Blaise.
He’d become the guy in my dreams, my weird schoolgirl fantasies. He was my high school crush. Everyone had one. If you didn’t, you’re even weirder than me, and that’s saying something. So when I started salivating over Blaise DeVroe, I kinda just let myself go. I mean, nothing was ever going to happen. Guys like him didn’t date girls like me. They didn’t even notice girls like me.
I wasn’t crazy. That’d make me all sorts of delusional.
I was a realist. I knew my place in life’s hierarchy. I was at the bottom. I was not the very bottom—because of my family—but socially, I was barely one rung up the ladder.
Anyway, when Blaise started kissing Mara, when Mara knelt in front of him, when she opened his pants—I lost all train of thought.
And, oh my God.
My whole body was awash with sensations, and I was captivated. Captivated! Entranced. Mesmerized.
I could not look away.
Then I felt throbbing and a warm feeling between my legs, and it was game over. It was all I could do not to make a sound, because I wanted to. So bad. I wanted to moan. I wanted to touch myself, but I didn’t. I kept myself reined in, but watch? Oh yeah. I watched.
I couldn’t not watch.
I watched the whole thing.
I loved the whole thing.
And then at the end of it, I almost died.
I don’t know how this author does it, but she never fails to craft a story that draws me in from the first page and lead me on a journey that elicits all of the feels. These characters will speak to your heart and you will find yourself falling in love with Blaise and Aspen. There were moments where I was in tears as well as moments full of hope, love, and romance.
The author is an expert when it comes to writing stories for the mature YA and NA audience. In this book, Blaise and Aspen are multi-layered characters and posses an inner strength to them that is admirable. That isn't to say that they don’t have flaws. They do and that is what makes them so real. They each make mistakes, but they also show great growth and maturity was the book progresses. The two are opposites with Aspen being a loner with an affinity for camping alone while Blaise is popular and frequently surrounded by people. I found Aspen absolutely endearing with her social awkwardness and quirky personality. Her strength of character isn’t very obvious at first as she seems more emotionally fragile that this author’s usual heroines - this is not bad as I like that not all of her characters are the same. Like Aspen, Blaise has his own issues and family drama that have greatly shaped who he is today. I had a more difficult time relating to him at the beginning of the book, but as more of his past was revealed, I fell in love with him. These two, for all of their differences are perhaps more similar deep down and are in fact, absolutely perfect for each other. I really enjoyed watching how their relationship evolved as well as how they each grew individually as a character.
Blaise and Aspen both pulled at my heartstrings for all that they have endured and I admire their resilience. If you have had the fortune of reading any of this author’s previous works, then you will understand when I say that you will be heartbroken and emotional, but you will also marvel at how she makes your heart whole again. So yes, there will be tears, but you will also be in awe of the healing and happiness that occurs amongst these characters as well.
While you may read a lot of reviews that rave about seeing Nate from this author’s Fallen Crest High series, this book is a complete standalone. Full confession: I have not yet read the entire FCH series (Gasp! I know and it is on my list.). Yet not once was I lost while reading this book. In fact, it just made me that more curious about all of the secondary characters. If you have read Crew Princess, then you will be thrilled to see some scenes with Bren and Cross. Again, this book is a complete standalone. I voluntarily reviewed an early version of this novel.
