OMFG....I dont even know where to start with this one! Other than it is Freaking LIFE!! I'm totally a #braygirlforlife What do you get when you pair a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with three bad boys who run the town? The answer is: a world that you crave to live in. Boys you salivate over. A girl who is tough as nails, takes no BS from anyone. You get the most amazing story with EVERYTHING. Raven, Maddoc 🖤, Royce and Captian are just amazing characters, that Brandy effortlessly makes you fall in love with. All four strong, fierce, loyal and independant. They have a way of getting under you skin and living there. Brandy made me not want to stop, I had to turn the page, had to keep reading, had to know WTF was going on. She kept me interested and on the edge of my seat, just waiting for that moment that my jaw would hit the damn floor and throw my kindle. And when it did, boy did I scream at the top of my lungs. I'm so invested in this world, in these characters, in this story. I cannot wait to see where it goes. And i cannot wait for the rage, Brandy so amazingly give me, to take over! I also added 1 more to my harem of book boyfriends. #maddocbelongstokatie!!

Holy... F-ing... He**... Batman!! I am still sitting here trying to process what I just read. Meagan Brandy really went in for the kill with this one. I don't know if I'm pi**ed off at her, or if I want to hug her. She had me on the edge right from the start. He** I was yelling at people to leave me alone so that I could keep reading. Then when I got to the end I just sat there yelling "WTF" The level of angst in this book had my head spinning and my mind going all over the place. Readers will be in a continual state of "what the actual F***", then jumping to "oh he** no", all while their hearts will be racing and their mind will be swimming with questions. Brandy has this gift of weaving together characters that take hold of your soul and will squeeze it with the grip like that of a python. You will not be able to stop yourself from feeling every high and low right along side the character. Everything that they go thru will keep you so engrossed that when to reach that part where it's the end, you won't know what to do with yourself. He** I had too many moments of wanting to take the characters and hide them away from Brandy, that I lost count. But, I will have to let her continue her brand of torture on them, all because I need the next part to this heart wrenching story.

The Brayshaw boys were Kings at the school. They ruled it with an iron fist until Raven showed up. She was expected to fall in line. Keep her head down and follow the rules. But Raven doesn't play along. And now, Maddoc, Royce, and Captian have to figure out where Raven lies, if not with them and what to do about it. I loved loved loved this book. I fell in love with each character differently. For more than just their good looks, or banter. For more than just what they wanted others to see. But also for their own personalities, and strengths and weaknesses. I loved everything about them and what each brought to the table. This book was amazing, right down to the last page, and left me wanting more. More of everything. If you love YA/NA romance then pick up this book. It has drama, plus revelations you don't see coming. It has three hot guys and a girl who challenges them every moment she can. This book ruined me in the best possible way. 5 ⭐ out of 5 ⭐.

Rating ★★★★★

Meagan Brandy is my new one click! I loved her last book The Wrong Blaze and I loved her new book The Boys of Brayshaw High. I love how she gives us charateers that are always on the edge, gritty and mysterious. Raven is just the character I love to read about. A true badass! I wish I were her in high school. You cant help but love her. The boys are slighly mysterious, hiding secrets and rule Brayshaw High with an iron fist. Nobody gets in their way ......until Raven comes along. Meagan Brandy is so talented at her craft. This book will leave you with a book hanger. So good! Need book 2 now!

Rating ★★★★★

All I can say is I love this book and can't wait for the next one. There is angst, a take no prisoners female lead, three secretive sexy brothers who dominate over everyone and a rivalry that knows no boundaries with Graven Prep. It is intense and thrilling that I personally will probably reread it again soon!

Rating ★★★★★

Wow! Meagan, once again you have outdone yourself.. this book has it all, domineering guys who know what they want, and a street smart angry girl, who just wants to make it to 18, who has survived by herself for so long she doesnt realize what she is really missing out on, good i loved this, cant wait for book 2!!

Rating ★★★★★

Oh my freaking God, Meagan you did it again, what a rollercoaster of a book in a good way of course :) Didn't care for the Brayshaw boys at the beginning but I was rooting for Rae, then Royce started to growing on me, then of course Cap and last Maddox. Raven had a shitty childhood, but the girl knew how to stand her ground,better watch out if you picked a fight with her, bacause she would fight back, and of course that upset the order for the Brayshaw boys, even when she had their backs. The only downside is that I have to wait for the next one...but differently one click this you won't regret it.

Rating ★★★★

Boys of Brayshaw High are not your typical high school boys and Raven is definitely not the girl next door. But when the Brayshaw boys meet Raven, they realize that they have met their match . . . or their equal? Raven was a dealt a crappy hand in the mom department and ends up being removed from the home and moved to a different town and a new school. The boys of Brayshaw run the school and the town and like things their way. Raven is not one for following the rules and finds herself in their sites on the first day. This book has all the drama! The Brayshaw boys remind me of the lost boys who have found their Wendy, just a little twisty. Can't wait for the next book!!

Rating ★★★★★

Is it spring yet?? My God. This book is so good. I can’t even.......... If your a fan of the likes of Tijan's Fallen Crest series this is definitely for you. Raven is one badass I want be. She's certainly a heroine you totally route for and cheer loudly for. Maddoc, is an absolute a$$, but then he's not. All depends which way the wind blows. They are both so.Hot for each other. It's enough to make you jealous. Even Royce and Captain are hot and arrogant enough to love. This story is sure to keep you on edge and absolutely cursing Meagan for the cliffhanger. I do look forward to reading the cleaned up version, till on book 2!

Rating ★★★★★

Omg!!! I was so excited to read this after reading the blurb I knew I needed it!!! I fell in love with not one but 3 a**holes in the books!!! There everything a girl can want even if that means with them treating you like shit yet at the end there the ones picking you back up. This time we also have a heroine, if I bi I’d take her too lol.. she’s strong and fearless and has a past that people look down on her but that don’t stop her. She’s the backbone of the guys and that’s something I love!!! I laughed and felt her pain and the boys and let’s say, Meagan ruined me with this one!! I NEED BOOK 2 ASAP!!!!

Rating ★★★★★

This author is quickly becoming one of my all time favourites! I can’t even begin to describe how amazing this book is! Raven is the powerful, independent, beautiful and loyal lead that I’ve been waiting for! She’s tested at every step of the way but meets each new challenge with her fierce determination and unwavering self belief! I think the Brayshaw boys may be my favourite sibling trio ever! These boys made me swoon hard! Captain, Royce and Maddoc blend together to cover every endearing quality a book boyfriend should have! Gentle, sweet, bossy, funny, sexy, caring and soooo much more! 😍 I can’t pick a favourite line, verse or chapter because I’m just so in love with the whole book! I’m desperate for the next book and to find out what happens next for these characters!!

The Boys Of Brayshaw High can fuck me sideways twice.. wait... I shouldn’t start a review like that... Hmm where do I start... Well let’s start with a loud Fuck You Meagan. That’s where I wanna start. Not because I hate the book, not because the characters weren’t every fucking thing you could ever want. No, I want the loud Fuck You because well.... I hate you for making me love teenage boys. I don’t care how bad ass they are I’m too old for that shit Meagan. I’m just kidding I don’t hate you at all for it. Okay so now that I got the Fuck You out of the way. I also want to say Thank Meagan. I can’t remember the last time I voluntarily stayed up to read and enjoyed every terrible second of the next day waiting to get back home to my boys. Yeah I said they are my boys. MINE. I’m not even going front like I don’t want all three.. cause fuck me sideways twice I do! I was up till the wee hours of the morning getting intimate with them. I got very little sleep, worked my ass off just so I could get home and finish with them. I mean I purposely left 8 percent in the book so that I had to come home to my boys. That is how much these boys owned me. Don’t mistake my love for the boys to mean I don’t have mad love for my girl either. That bitch is bad ass. Completely and underly understated worth in her own mind but the people that matter know what she’s worth and fuck me if I don’t want to see how she finally clues the fuck in to how fucking awesome she is. Okay so I told you about my crazy love for the mains. Let me drop you some lines on the secondaries. They made the story whole. Even the ones that you get the urge to spike their drinks with eyes drops are integral parts to this story line. None of the characters are useless. They all add to the story. One in particular really chaps my khakis but at the same time I’m waiting for his claim to fame. I know something is going to go down and I can’t wait to see what Meagan’s dirty mind comes up with. So let’s talk story a minute. I know some of y’all are gonna be all like ‘but they are so young’. Nah bitch, I didn’t feel that while I was reading I legit had to remind myself these were high school kids. They don’t act a fool like you may fear. The naivety that you associate with the young isn’t present in this story. Well at least not for me. But at the same time I wasn’t like, ‘no fucking way a kid in high school would do that’ . The plot and story (or if you want to call those the same thing you do you, who am I to judge) was stellar in this one. There was no lag. No hurry up with it already. For those of you worried there won’t be sex. Bro there’s sex. But those of you worried it’s going to be too much sex, nah don’t worry it’s not. I feel like for the story and the characters the plot to sex ratio is perfect. I never once had to skip the sex because it felt redundant. In fact it was well placed and paced to to book. Well at least for me. And yeah it’s hot. Once you meet the guys you’ll know the sex can’t be anything but hot. Fuck I feel like I am babbling so maybe I should cut it here. To sum it up. I fucking loved this book. Meagan awakened my dormant reader. I’ve been struggling to connect with characters and really feel them. But (totally started a sentence with but) I can tell you I sure as fuck I felt these characters. I would definitely recommend this to everyone. Anyone that will fucking listen to me. Everything from the uniquely stunning cover to the end that you never want to come. I can’t wait for the rest of this series cause book one is currently holding my top spot of 2019. First five star of the year bitches. So strap on and get you some cause you won’t regret it. Now if you will excuse me I will be over here not patiently waiting for more of my boys. #BigMansNumber1 Please note when I said I love teenage boys, clearly I meant the fictional kind only. Let’s not get weird.

Rating ★★★★★

I absolutely loved the way this book played out. Raven “Rae Rae” is the poor kid in the group home sent to a school full of privileged kids, run by the Bradshaw Boys, Maddox, Royce and Captain. Rae immediately gets on the wrong side of the boys and refuses to back down. What Rae doesn’t get, and neither do the boys, by refusing to back down, and by living by her own code, she shows the 3 something they’ve never seen before. Rae and Maddoc’s relationship is also great to watch unfold, he really doesn’t know what hit him when it comes to her. And the relationships she develops with Cap and Royce are great. The ending had me ready to toss my iPad, so now I can’t wait for the next book, to see what happens next.

Rating ★★★★★

First, I read this book in less than a day. Second, this cover is amazing. And third, this book stuck! I could NOT put it down and I needed a book like this like yesterday. My emotions were up, down, scattered, put back together just to be shattered again. I felt for Raven but I love her more. She’s a bad a** who marches to the beat of her own drum and can hold her own to anyone, scared or not. I absolutely adored her. Maddoc had my heart from the beginning. Everyone loves an a**hole but he’s a sexy, smart, loyal one! Royce had me cracking up throughout the book. Fierce, loyal and funny! Then there’s Captain! I just wanted to snuggle him and be his best friend, lol. Also, funny, fierce and loyal. Boys of Brayshaw High are keepers but ones you don’t cross. This book kept me on edge and wanting more. Just when I got what I wanted, there was more thrown at me and the need for more continued. I can’t wait until the second book in Spring of 2019. It’s going to be a long, long winter, haha. I guess I didn’t expect to be this attached but it definitely jumps to the top of my list! Great job! A must, just read! You won’t be disappointed!!!

OH Meagan Brandy !!! I feel that when you put "pen to paper" or "fingers to keyboard?" that sounds weird, but you all know what I mean. When you wrote this book you had me in mind. You knew exactly what would call to my Mature YA loving heart. I was engaged, engrossed, enchanted and utterly entertained by this story. I can see the gloves coming off with the guys in this story, everyone is going to be claiming them. Maddoc, Captain and Royce are a force, each with their own personalities yet these three together are one and it's intimidating, powerful and commendable. Not one really overshadows the other, yet they all stand out if that makes sense. And then there's Rae, a baddass bitch that has this vulnerability that makes you want to befriend her. Makes you want to cheer for her and makes you want to ensure that she knows what love is. This book is about bonds, trust and loyalty. It's a slow burn with that teenage angst that I live for. When this goes live, grab it you aren't going to want to miss meeting the Boys of Brayshaw.

"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.

“You’re Raven Carver, aren’t you?”

I face forward with a frown.

“Sorry, but Maybell told me you were coming today. I didn’t think you’d be at school already, but usually the only new kids who come are people from the home.”

“Yeah, well, I wasn’t exactly given an option so, here I am.”

“Are you gonna run?”

I laugh lightly, shifting my eyes to hers. “Nah. I’ve got nowhere to be. Now I’m stuck in the system ‘til I’m eighteen anyway, so fuck it. May as well cruise through.”

“Those guys back there, you need to be careful. They’re… not like most high schoolers. People around here listen to them, follow their every move.”

So those are the guys the chick was referring to this morning.

“What you did today? They won’t allow that without getting you back. They can’t.” She shakes her head.

“I keyed his Denali.” I shrug. “Big fucking deal.”

The girl stops, her eyes widening. “Yeah, you got that part right. It is a ‘big fucking deal.’ If they let some nobody, new girl like you – no offense – openly disrespect them like that, it’ll threaten their entire system.”


“Yeah. System. They’re a big deal around here, and not just at the school. You either kneel at their feet or get stomped under them. They’ll make sure you’re shamed, one way or another.”

We make our way up the dirt driveway. “He disrespected me first. If there’s one thing I know about guys, it’s if you let them walk all over you, they’ll take pleasure in doing it.”

The girl steps ahead, pulling open the screen door as she looks back at me. “If there’s one thing I know about the boys of Brayshaw, it’s that they’ll destroy anything that threatens to mess up their vision. Watch out, Raven. Your little stunt today may have gotten the guys you’re used to off your back, but for these guys? All you did was paint the mark brighter.”

I raise a black brow and she scowls at me.

“A target from them means a target from all their followers,” she spits.

Right. “Let me guess… you’re a follower?”

This time it’s her who pops an eyebrow. “Welcome to Brayshaw High.”
