Aundi’s Musings…

5 Bully CROWNS

This book has everything you’re looking for in a bully romance. Heartbreaking back story with an Alpha bully and a love that was always meant to be, yes please! I absolutely love Ashley’s writing style she has the ability to draw you into a story from the start and hold you captive throughout. I could not put this down once I started and you won’t either. She does not disappoint with this addictive bully romance. 

His edges are sharp like broken glass… deterring someone from getting to close. And while most would walk away out of fear of being cut… I want to merge my broken pieces with his.

Jace is Everything!! Sexy brooding bad ass with a short fuse and a possessive side that can’t be matched. From the very first page you are made aware why Jace is the way he is. And it broke my heart and completely endeared me to him. He was broken and lost trying to mend what can’t possibly be mended. He builds walls around him so that he won’t be hurt anymore and the one person he thought never would does. 

He is mean and vindictive but even so you can’t help but see through the mask he’s trying to wear. The way he treats Dylan is likely to give you whiplash as it did with me. For this and a myriad of other reasons you want to hate him, but you just can’t your heart won’t let you

One second Jace looks at me like I’m the answer to some prayer. But the next? It’s like I’m the Devil dragging him on a road to hell. 

I love a strong female character that doesn’t take any shit. And Dylan is that in spades. She stands up for herself from the start and doesn’t back down. I love the fire in her Soul and the way she doesn’t settle for the way Jace is treating her. She is absolutely gorgeous and understandably confused about why Jace is acting the way he is. The banter between them is fantastic it’s like foreplay every time their together. The anticipation builds through every interaction and every page waiting for the inevitable combustion. The fire and heat between them are palpable you can feel it through the pages. 

If you want to stop the dogs from peeing on your lawn, you need to put up a fence. Not a sign

Even though this story is filled with all the passion inducing angst you can handle. Ashley injects a perfect balance of humor throughout. I found myself laughing out loud on multiple occasions. And can I just say Oakley is hilarious. I loved every second of him in this story. So, if you’re looking for a deliciously sexy bully romance that will pull at your heartstrings and make you laugh at the same time, look no further. This is the book for you. I highly recommend this. So, hurry grab a copy and buckle up for an amazing ride that will leave you wanting more. I Dare You. 


Welcome to their kingdom…

I never thought I’d step foot in Royal Manor again.
But four years later, here I am…back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy.

And forced to face Jace Covington.
My first friend. First crush. First kiss.
The one I left behind.

Only—he isn’t the same boy I gave my heart to.

This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous.
And he’s determined to make my life a living hell.
Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants.

They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I’d rather eat dirt.

If Jace Covington wants me gone…he’ll have to try harder.
Because I’ve never been the kind of girl to play by the rules.

WARNING: Royal Hearts Academy is a New Adult/High School series of standalones filled with drama, a touch of angst, and boys who are bad to the bone.

This series is recommended for mature readers due to graphic language and sexual content.

“Is that why you wore this sexy little shirt tonight?” His warm breath tickles the side of my neck. “Hoping to get my attention.”


That earns me a husky chuckle. “Too bad.” He presses his lips against my throat. “Because it’s working. You have all my attention.” He walks his fingers down my torso. “Question is…what are you going to do with it?”
