The new girl doesn’t belong here.
So why can’t I stop thinking about her?
The daughter of the headmaster wants to ruin my school year before it’s even begun. Iris Briggs gets under my skin. With her demure skirts and braided hair, she flits around the periphery until she runs right into me, hot coffee soaking me as she looks up with wide, innocent eyes.
We start off scalding.
In the library, we reach lava levels.
And then in the city? She burns me to the ground.
I’m Keaton Constantine. My duty is to my family. At least, it was until I started unbraiding the good girl and realizing there’s more to life than duty.
Wicked Idol is book one in a series of interconnected standalones! Each bad boy will be getting their own story!
I don't really know what to say about this book.
So, please don't let my upcoming ramblings stop you from reading and enjoying this story!
The book was way too short. Nothing was talked about long enough. Not even the Hellfire Club - which is what the series is called. We meet all the future books' guys and girls for seconds. Especially the boys. We don't get enough of them. We don't get any background on anything basically. Not even Iris & Keaton's family and their siblings and their hopes and dreams. It's all just mentioned so very quickly.
It felt like a book that I've read a million times before. And not only the story. But the writing too. No idea who the authors are, but I feel like I've read them before and even then I wasn't in love with the writing. The sometimes weird use of grammar and especially the word AS (as in: I couldn't come to the meeting, AS I was still in bed). It was all so familiar. Very weird.
I also want to add - should this whole series ever come to Netflix, I would definitely watch it!☺
