The Fallen run the halls of St. Joseph’s Academy. They’re rich, sexy and most definitely untouchable. Zephyr is the leader of the pack. Then there are Tyce, Thunder, Jagger and Lennon. Everyone that knows them knows their word is law and they aren’t to be questioned. Which means their dirty little secret is safe, at least for now.

“I’m a law unto myself in this place, and everyone knows it, even the teachers, right up to the lamer than lame principal.”

Blake is the new girl at St. Joseph’s Academy. She intends to take total advantage of the once in a life time opportunity she has been given. After all, they don’t give a full scholarship to such a prestigious school to just anyone. She earned this and will do whatever it takes so she doesn’t have to return home. She knew going in that her appearance at the uptight, super rich and exclusive school may cause some waves. But she didn’t think the kings of the school would be the ones to come for her right away.

“Welcome to the motherfucking forest, Bambi. Word of warning…watch your back, or the predators will.”

Zeph doesn’t like the new girl. But he can’t seem to get her out of his mind or stay away from her. Blake has her own secrets and wants them hidden from the Fallen…especially Zeph. He’s the bad boy she knows she needs to steer clear of but kind of doesn’t want to. There is a ton of drama, mystery and attitude in this book. No bully romance would be complete without the token mean girls and super-hot asshole guys so there is an abundance of them here. Will the Fallen uncover her secret or maybe Blake already knows theirs?

“I’m the alpha, the omega, and every fucking thing in between.”

Bully Romance and Reverse Harem are some of my favorite genres. I love everything about them. Unfortunately this book didn’t work for me. I like the whole idea of the story. It’s just one we have read so many times before that this one didn’t have anything that set it apart from the others. I felt like it was very repetitive. I think because of that I had a hard time connecting with any of the characters. I personally struggled to make it through the book. But just because it wasn’t my favorite doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check it out. If you love Bully and Reverse Harem books take a chance on Sins at St. Joseph’s Academy.


Charly & Raine – “Wild parties, hot horny guys, and young woman craving the D gives you all the steam and the banter and sarcasm gives you all the laughs.”

Stephanies Book Reports – “If your a fan of high school bully romances this is one that you do not want to miss.”

Goodreads Review – “Holy smokes this book was intense.”

About MV Ellis

MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.

Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a ‘WAG’, and her experiences inspire her writing.

Ellis’ love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.

An avid reader, Ellis always knew that she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017. She has continued to expand the Heartless Few series beyond Catching London, with releases planned through to 2020. In addition, she has launched a new four-part series, Rough Ink series, set in the sexy world of a New York tattoo studio. Expect the same *sexy badass guys, angst galore, witty banter, scorching bedroom scenes, and kickass sassy women; but with a whole new world, and cast of characters to get to know and love. Zed, the first book in the series launched in June 2019.
