5 MY FEELINGS ARE A MESS CROWNS

You know a series is good because your heart hurts that it is over. And yes, I know we are getting Cap and a Royce’s book, but Maddoc and Raven’s story is done and I’m left feeling bereft. I don’t know how to say goodbye to a couple I have loved so much, to a story that consumed me, and to a world that I’m enamored with.

Raven and her boys are everything. I loved seeing the evolution of not just Raven but of Maddoc, Royce, and Captain. Seeing them go from men who follow rules to kings who rule and seeing Raven go from a lost, obstinate girl to a defiant queen was more than I could have hoped for. These four became more than friends, they became family, and the readers, like me, became a piece of their family, too.

Through these three books, I have been enthralled with the romance between Maddoc and Raven. From the push and pull of their courtship, to the possessive nature from both sides, and the intimate moments when they are alone, these two have easily slipped into one of my favorite couples of all times. The way they love, fiercely and passionately, is how we all want to be loved. What makes this series special, though, is that this love isn’t just romantic. It is familial as well. The passion and love, although different, extends beyond Raven and Maddoc to their brothers as well as some of the secondary characters who take a more prominent role in this book. I was truly so sad to say goodbye to them, the whole entire crew of secondary and primary characters.

The story, in true Brayshaw fashion, starts out with a bang and it never stops. I felt every emotion, every word, like it was being carved into my heart. As I was reading, I openly begged for things to right themselves, for actions to become undone. And even though it hurt, I loved every moment because Meagan Brandy stayed true to these characters, and what motivates them. While they may have gotten lost for a bit the boys and their queen return in full glory to reign over Brayshaw and my heart!

This ending is everything we have come to love about BRAYSHAW! It is dramatic, emotional, romantic, perfection. I will always and forever be a #braygirl.

P.S. And if you thought my claim on all the Bray boys was strong before, you haven’t seen anything yet. I am coming for all of the secondary characters, too. I cannot wait to see what Meagan does with the rest of the series. I am here for it all.

5 Brayshaw CROWNS

This. Book. Was. Everything! Meagan once again created a story that not only draws you in from the first page and keeps you enthralled throughout. But one that will slowly and meticulously squeeze your heart until you can’t breathe just waiting to see what’s going to happen next. I am one hundred percent invested in these character’s and this world that Meagan created. What happens to them feels like it’s happening to me, that is the genius behind Meagan’s writing. You need this book in your life!

They want an obedient wife. There getting a defiant queen.

Raven has been my girl since Boys of Brayshaw High. She is the most bad-ass heroine that I have read in a while. She takes no crap from anyone and she can handle herself in all situations. But at the same time, she has this huge heart and always and I mean always put’s the needs of others before her own. And that part of her character does not change in this. But what does is you finally get to see the completed evolution of a Queen. They are hoping they will be able to control her because she is just a woman, but they could not be any more wrong. She is audacious, she is reckless, she is loyal. She. Is. Queen! 

Loyal despite her inability to trust. Honest even when it hurts her.

Maddoc and Raven have come a long way from their petulant beginnings, and I have loved every single minute of their relationship. And this story just cements that they are my favorite couple of all time. They are unapologetically possessive of each other. And love each other unabashedly and with a wildness I think everyone wishes to be loved with. But what I adore most about them is their relationship with the boys. They have an unbreakable bond between them that is welded together with steel that you can feel through the pages. They hurt when the others hurt, they bleed when the others bleed. They are the type of family that you could only hope to have. Fiercely Loyal, Stubbornly Protective, Bonded by Choice not by Blood!!

“What conclusion?” “That I’d walk through fire if it kept you guys from getting hurt.”

I am heartbroken that this story has ended, I know we still get Caps and Royce’s stories and I can’t wait to see what Meagan does with them and all the secondary characters. But it still feels as if a piece of my soul is lost now that this part is complete. This story was everything I could have hoped for regarding them. Meagan pulls no punches and I am not going to lie you will spend a large chunk of the book with anxiety over what’s going on, but trust that Meagan knows what she’s doing. You will make it through and be so grateful that you did!!! So, buckle up for this Epic conclusion to one of the best series I have ever read.

5 edge of my seat CROWNS

Reign of Brayshaw is an amazing conclusion to this fantastic series. The intricacies of the plot just blew me away, although I will admit at times I could’ve used a map or a family tree to keep things straight in my mind. I admire the way this author brought everything together with an intriguing and fast paced storyline.

I don’t know what I can say that would do the boys and girls of Brayshaw justice. I love their fierceness, their loyalty and passion. Each of them have possessive qualities but are equally able to put those aside, when required, in order to put others needs and safety before their own. This is clearly not an easy step to take for any of them and their pain and distress, the uneasiness they feel about certain situations, is not sugar coated.

For me, as much as I loved the boys, Raven was the shining light in this story. She’s strong and feisty, every knock down just making her rise up and return tougher and more tenacious than ever. Although Reign is the conclusion to Raven and Maddoc’s story, the unexpected plot twists saw more interaction between Raven, Captain and Royce and I absolutely adored those moments. They were like the calm in the midst of all the mayhem.

Although I felt a little overwhelmed at times, overall I thoroughly enjoyed every gasping, edge of my seat, drama filled moment to this epic series. Oh, and that ending? Perfect! However, the ride isn’t over yet for this family and I can’t wait to see where it takes them next.


 Synopsis:

“Trust only those who earn it.”

A sentiment I follow without direction but holds more consequence than ever before.

One decision, five lives, three futures.

This is what’s at stake.

One night, one choice, four broken Brayshaws.

That is where we’re headed.

Unless I stop it.

𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 to stop it.

I have to remind him of what he’s chosen to forget.

My town. My choice. 𝘔𝘺 ending.

Synopsis:

“Girls like you aren’t exactly welcomed at a place like this, so keep your head down and look the other way.”

Those were the exact words of my social worker when she dropped me in my newest hellhole, a place for “troubled teens”.

I didn’t listen, and now I’m on their radar.

They expect me to play along in their games of hierarchy, to fall in line in the social order they’ve deemed me fit.

Too bad for them, I don’t follow rules.

Too bad for me, they’re determined to make sure I do.

Inconceivably attractive and treated like kings…these are the boys of Brayshaw High.

And I’m the girl who got in their way.

  1. Perfection! I knew this was going to be an incredible conclusion to Raven and Maddoc. I loved every second! I’m so looking forward to the Cap and Royce books, I’m even more in love with them now. I swear I have a book hangover still. #braygirlforever
