5 Is It Real CROWNS

GAHHHH!!!!!!!! BRAND NEW WORLD. NEW CHARACTERS. I absolutely love this story. The heroine is so fun, the hero is to die for. I fell in love with these two as they fell in love with each other. And in true Meagan fashion, she has some surprises up her sleeve. Get ready for amazing!

Demi and Nico are all of the things. Every single one. Nico seems all broody and stolid, but there is so much more below the surface, so much he is trying to shield. With each chapter, Meagan showed us pieces behind the mask, and I was unable to resist him.

Demi is the sweet girl we love. Very different from her previous heroine, but still able and willing to stand her ground when pushed too far. I lived for those moments when she did.

There is also a whole host of secondary characters I loved. The friendship between the girls and Nico and Trent adds so much depth to the characterization of Nico and Demi as well as the plot.

Additionally, the chemistry between these two is so good. The tension, the flirting, the uncertainty that comes with a fake relationship made me flip threw these pages so fast. I couldn’t get enough of them. With all Meagan Brandy books, though, wait for those surprises because she has them coming and they are GOOOD. So. Good. It ties all the pieces together and makes Nico and Demi’s hard fought HEA so freaking magical.

Meagan Brandy has delivered another cast of characters to love, another swoon-worthy, brooding hero, and another romance to get swept away in. Fake It ‘Til You Break It is sure to be a fave.

5 Not Fakin’ These Crowns

When Meagan says she’s bringing you a whole new world with all new characters she’s not fooling around. These characters are All. The. Things! Meagan has this undeniable way of pulling you straight into a story from the start. Her words weave a tale so fascinating you can’t help but get lost in the pages and thus lost in their world. I completely devoured this book in one sitting, I literally could not put it down, seriously food what’s that, sleep who needs it, just give me all the words as sustenance!!!

“Nah.” His grip lessens, his fingertips dragging along my skin with their retreat. My eyes fall to the contact, a heavy tension tugging at my muscles as I force my gaze back to his, but Nico is no longer looking at me.

Oooh let me tell you Nico is freaking delicious. He’s right up there with Big Man and Alec for me with his Alpha possessiveness and overall personality. These men seem aloof and unfeeling but once they have what they want that’s when you see the differing layers. I absolutely love this about Meagan’s writing. She takes these strong dominate men and shows us exactly what happens underneath all that dominance, and I. Am. Here. For. It. All!!!! Once you see what Nico is having to deal with all the walls he’s constructed around himself make so much sense. Watching as little by little Demi makes her way through it’s such a thing of beauty, to see these dominate men fall to their knees for their woman. Gah that shit gets me every time! 

“Nico, what are—”“What the fuck’s the point of this thing?” I exhale against her, my other hand tugging at the bottom of her wannabe hoodie. Her swallow isn’t missed and I glare at the softness of her neck as she leans to the side, trying to escape my heated breaths, but all it does is tease me with more creamy, sun brushed skin. 

Demi to me is like a cross between Oakley and Raven. Not as hardcore as Raven but definitely not a pushover either and she has the same determination as Oakley. She is a brilliant student and a dedicated dancer. And it’s her sassy presence and no nonsense attitude that have me rooting for this girl. I love and I mean love a strong women who is comfortable with herself and has no problem putting other’s in their place. But on the opposite side Demi has some things that she is going through and gives her loyalty without fail, even to those who don’t deserve it. Watching her as she struggles will make your heart ache. You want so badly to shake some of the people in her life and yell at them for the way they talk to her and treat her. 

Nico’s mouth falls from mine in the same second, his breathing out of control. He eyes me a moment, then cuts a quick stare over his shoulder, at the back of Alex’s retreating body. The reason for the show. The warmth of Nico’s body disappears, but he grips my hand and pulls me back to class, leaving a small piece of me in the empty hallway without even realizing it. 

I had to have highlighted about 90% of this freaking book that’s how good it is. Every page, every word keeps you utterly enthralled. This story has the perfect balance of angst and passion with an intriguing storyline full of Meagan’s signature twists and turns that keeps you riveted. The chemistry between Nico and Demi is incendiary seriously every time they are in the same room, the tension is so thick it’s hard to breathe. I live for that kind of tension in a story, when it’s a tangible thing that you can actually feel proves how good of a writer Meagan is. This story shows why Meagan is one of my Ride or Die authors. She is a master at what she does and I am so freaking happy she made the transition from Blogger to Author cause I don’t know where I’d be without her words.

ARC review



That’s what we are.

That’s what we agreed to be.

I thought it would be harder, convincing everyone our school’s star receiver was mine and mine alone, but we played our parts well.

So well, the lines between us began to blur until they disappeared completely.

The thing about pretending, though, someone’s always better at it, and by the time I realized my mistake, there was no going back.

I fell for our lie.

And then everything fell apart.

It turned out, he and I were never playing the same game. 

He didn’t have to break me to win. 

But he did it anyway.
