Summary of the Book:

Soon to become a television series!

Hidden Falls High has a new King…

Dante Black, the blackest of the Blacks.

Another home, another new school.

Another target.

Life was supposed to be smooth sailing when you’re at the end of your high school year.

Of course it is.

Especially when you’re the one your father relies on to take care of loose ends. And by the time you’re 17, you’ve already earned yourself a reputation amongst the Inner Circle as someone to be feared.

Who am I? I’m the charming Prince, the Golden Boy, the one no one suspects to have no heart.

Until I saw her…my target. The girl I will bring down because she is his crush. Summer.

Who knew crushes could be so cruel?


There is someone new living in the Donovans’ old mansion in Hidden Falls, the exclusive enclave in Malibu. He’s a senior at the Academy, but he seems older like he’s already seen so much in the world. Maybe he has. Maybe he’s not of this world.

I thought I had finally found peace at Hidden Falls High…but the nightmare is just beginning…

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have been reading a lot of slow burn reverse harem books as of late. I had previous lead the prequel and posted a review for that one. Now I am still wondering about Dante and even River. I know Summer is a strong and she will come more into herself as the series goes on. She has her own things to deal with. There were secrets and twist in this book. I am ready for the next one.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
