Review: Willow Heights Prep Academy Series by Selena

Wednesday 19 January 2022


Bad Apple Book 1

My name is Harper Apple, and people say I’m rotten to the core.
“Girls like you get one shot.”

When my shot comes in the form of a scholarship to Willow Heights Prep, you can bet your ass I take it. If getting out of this hellhole town means spending my last two years of high school at an elite academy full of rich, entitled pricks, then bring it on.

“Girls like you don’t belong.”

The arrogant and infuriatingly gorgeous Dolce brothers reign supreme in the hallowed halls of Willow Heights, and they don’t welcome my kind. Especially when I get in their way, don’t play by the rules in their twisted games, and refuse to bow to the cruel tyrants who run the place.

“Girls like you are bad news.”

Royal, Baron, and Duke Dolce set their sights on me. They think a poor girl will be an easy target, that they can break me and bring me to my knees like the girls who came before me. But the Dolce boys underestimate me. In this town, even girls from the trailer park hide deadly secrets. Secrets that could destroy them.

After all, it’s those from the wicked world of wealth and privilege with the most to lose.

This book is not RH--the main character ends up with ONE love interest.

This is the start of a brand new, dark high school bully romance/enemies to lovers story featuring a damaged anti-hero and a heroine who fights her own battles. It is not for the faint of heart. It is in *no way* safe. I don't want to list specifics bc they are spoilers IMO, so I'll just say this. If you have triggers or hard lines, avoid this book. 18+ readers only.

This was such an amazing series. I love bully books but the storyline in this series was simply too captivating for words. At times the fetishes were a bit too much to stomach and there are some serious triggers but the story behind the darkness is all I could have asked for, and more!

Who needs love when you can hate someone for forever?!

I can't wait for Preston's story and any other side ventures that are coming our way. This is my new must-read author.

You might not guess it when you pick up your first Selena novel, but Selena is a true romantic. She writes gritty, realistic New Adult contemporary novels with characters you'll love to hate and hate to love.

If reading about teens behaving badly upsets you, steer clear because these are full of drama, angst, fighting, drugs, sex, and rock & roll. There will be times you want to throw your Kindle. There will be lying, cheating, bullying, backstabbing, violence, and hard-earned, sweet redemption for those who won't give up on love. Because life's not always picture perfect, but every heart, no matter how broken and damaged, deserves love.
