There’s only one thing you need to know about Scarsdale High.
The Royals rule here.
We say when to jump and how high, and the rest follow like lemmings because to do otherwise is social suicide.
As cheer captain, I have everything I’ve ever wanted, including Scarsdale’s star quarterback, Navrin Fox.
There’s just one problem … his twin brother.
Lev Fox knows exactly how to push my buttons—he’s been doing it since childhood, after all—but when I give into my baser instincts and let the boy I hate best me in a battle of wills, it’s not only my reputation as Queen Bee on the line, it’s my heart too.
Secrets, betrayal, and lies—that’s what we Royals do best.
But no one ever said anything about love.

Oh my, oh my. I don’t even know where to begin with this review but what I do know is that I am officially out of my book slump!! And the first book in the Scarsdale Royals series sure didn’t gently pull me out of my slump. Oh no. It grabbed me by the hair, yanked me out and took me on one hell of a crazy and wild ride. V. Darling, where the hell have you been all of my book loving life? This book is so well written and chocked full of angst, drama, betrayal, bully romance and then topped off with a super hot love triangle. Oh yeah and there’s twins…gorgeous ones. Need I say more?
“He’ll throw me to the lions, feed me to the gators in the moat, and burn me at the stake before he’d ever kneel at my feet. And if I’m not careful, I’ll let him take my crown, because love makes fools of even the strongest queens.”
The Royals are the elite, the rich and entitled who rule the halls of Scarsdale High. And their Queen and King sit high on their thrones. Scout has been in love with Nav since she was eight years old and asked him to be her first kiss. Too bad his twin Lev was the one who stole that kiss. But they’ve come a long way from then and now Scout is the captain of the cheerleaders who walks the halls with her sexy quarterback boyfriend Nav at her side. Lev may have gotten her first kiss but Nav owns her heart.
“You think I haven’t seen the way you look at her?”
“And how do I look at her?”
“Like she’s yours, and I’m just borrowing her.”
Nav is the most popular boy in school. The king of the elite and Scout loves him and her crown but she can’t seem to get Lev off of her mind or keep him out of her bed. Lev is the definition of rich, hot and entitled bad boy. He spends most of his time in the pool house with random girls who will do anything for their chance with him but what he really wants is Scout by his side. But she belongs to his brother, right? Not as far as Lev is concerned. Scout and Lev have an insanely hot love/hate relationship that leans way over on the “I hate you but really just want to throw you down and take you right here” side. It’s crazy hot and the scenes between them are super intense. What happens when the Queen of the Royals lets the Dirty Prince have all her firsts? Some secrets don’t stay buried for long and when you betray those closest to you we see how easily a Kingdom can crumble.
“The Queen has fallen, taken off the board by a pawn, and now she’s nothing. Less than nothing. I’m just another stupid girl so blinded by power, by love, that I forgot to harden my heart. I forgot that to love is the be ruined, and now there’s no way to come back from it.”
I absolutely loved the first book in Scarsdale Royals series. Every crazy, intense, twisted word had me devouring the pages. I also loved both Fox brothers. I haven’t read a love triangle this good in a long time and was honestly so torn on who I hoped Scout would end up with. Nav was so sweet and loved Scout so much. As much as I loved the steamy parts with Scout and Lev, I also found myself cringing at times because I loved Nav. But then I also loved Lev. He had loved Scout forever and had to throw the whole I hate you vibe out there to protect his heart and try and stay away from his brother’s girl. This is the girl who in his mind belonged to him first. Scout took me a little while to love because at times I wanted to throat punch some sense into her…but she grew on me. The secrets, betrayals and lies run deep in this book. Will the Queen get her crown back and if she does what brother will rule by her side? I loved this book and these characters. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for us in the next book in the Scarsdale Royal Series!
“Her kisses belong to me. All of her kisses. Forever. Scout Taylor is mine.”
“You’re sick. You know that?” But even as I say it, I know we’re both infected, tainted, ailing from the same illness, and neither one of us will do anything to cure it. There is no cure for a love as vicious and cruel as this. There’s only embracing what we are, what we have, and what we’ll do to one another. What we’ll do to see each other fall.
“I want you to leave me alone.” I pant as his hands work my pussy faster and his cock pumps into my ass harder.
“I don’t think that’s true,” he whispers.
I gasp, struggling for breath as I climb closer to climax. “I hate you so much it hurts.”
“I know.” He bites down on my shoulder. The way a beast might bite the neck of his consort as he fucks her and claims her as his.
I always thought of Lev as a big bad wolf so in love with his own solitude—angry and untouchable—but he’s not. He’s a fox, sly and cunning, determined to shred, and tear until there is nothing left.
He groans as he spills inside me, and the sensations push me over the edge. My body clenches tight around him, riding him, milking him, and all the while he fucks me harder through my orgasm.
When the only sound in the room is our labored breaths, and the sweat cools on our bodies, he releases my shoulder and smiles. “The feeling is fucking mutual, Cub.”
