    Thank you so much for joining me on my review for updates during the wait time for this book's release! I'll likely be doing the same for the final book's release at the end of the month, too.

I'll likely be doing the same for the final book's release at the end of the month, too. The Envy of Idols was fun and it's really thrilling to see things start to shift more towards a truly romantic, dating, trying-to-win-the-girl part of the plot. This installment has some sex scenes on top of the usual cussing and frankness about sex, but the scenes not overtly explicit like they would be in erotica, but this book is definitely in new adult/NA territory, which has always been the author's intent for this series despite the high school setting. I also appreciate the author's note outright expressing that the sex and interactions with Marnye are consensual and that she's in this series with the right mindset about how to handle the darker edge we're facing. I also like that this isn't just suddenly a problem free situation; there are a variety of tasks to deal with in in regards to the boys and their feelings. Tristan and Windsor especially are shown to be dealing with more mental weight than we might think. I also like that the revenge is still on-going with Harper and her subordinates and that the boys have joined in on Maryne's side, organizing their ranks to be a full frontal team. The harem angle is so nicely handled with a degree of complexity; it's not just "we're all together and that's that". Maryne is still figuring things out and everyone is learning to co-exist, so it feels like a more realistic approach to the idea than a lot of RH books, which tend to just gloss over the more unorthodox relationship polyandry is for most people. The Infinity Club still looms as well and the epilogue delivers what might be another obstacle to overcome... so I'm definitely enjoying that the author is weaving in a good deal of plot threads and conflicts without it feeling like she's just throwing everything she can at the story for the sake of drama. The developments with the boys have been great to read! I had to stop reading a few times just because I had to prep myself as we got into a new scene of flirting and what not. My favorite boys have to be Windsor and Creed tying, Zack in second, with Zayd coming next and Tristan being last (as much as I love dark and moody edge-lords, the other four are just a little more likeable; he's still fun but like in the 5 boy ranking he's last). Overall, this is just a fun read! Maryne is a great heroine and her perspective never gets dull or irritating. I'm so happy we're still going strong with the narrative and I'm looking forward to how everything culminates and is resolved in book #4 In the Arms of the Elite In the meantime, another academy series from C.M. Stunich will be debuting in about a week (May 12th) The Secret Girl I'm super excited to see the author continue with this sort of academy genre and am interested in how she pulls off the gender-bender angle.

    *This really short review is sponsored by Kristen Bell* Ok so I didn't like the other two books but I'm a bit stubborn so I read this one too. Oh boy. So nothing happened. NOTHING. That's it. Marnye, that dumb bitch, is still horny and she still can't choose one of the 5 hot guys to be with. Oh and Miranda, Creed's twin and her BFF, is now in love with her. Hallelujah.

The others know and even if they don't like it they can't do shit about it because they agreed to date her. All of them. Marnye right now : And that's the whole story. She still is in war with Harper but when things happen to them, they're gone after 2 lines. Like they don't matter at all. And they don't because we don't give a fuck about what could happen to that dumb bitch (spoiler alert: nothing happen to her). She is the most horribly annoying character I have ever read and I went through all that inner goddess nonsense from Anna Steele in Fifty Shades Of Grey. Even Bella seems smarter than Marnye. Oh I forgot. Marnye has these really weird thoughts : - She's eating with Miranda and she decides to eat a veggie meal because she wants to cut her meat intake. - She is in bed with Zack watching TV and she thinks the ads are annoying and how she doesn't miss them because she has an add blocking app on her phone. How is that relevant to the story ? Or to Marnye ? With this epilogue, the author is really going to put the sisters against eachother ? Really ? I have no idea what the purpose of this book actually is. None.

    this was most definitely a filler book, the fact that EVERYONE is in love with her is so annoying but i love the friendships and schemes they get into too much to really care.

    OMG. SHE DID IT. HER AND CREED BOTH LOST THE V. TOGETHER. HOW ADORABLE. The Envy of Idols was a book that I flew through. I feel like I'm so invested in these characters and their stories that I would drop whatever I was doing and just read the book if it's available. There's something about these guys and Maryne because I'm addicted. Things are starting to heat up between this group and I'm all for it.

All I know is that I don't want my heart broken after this series ends because right now - I hate these cliffhangers. Okay, so shit is going down constantly in this book. Harper and her wannabe friends are basically bald, being expelled, or idk - dead in my eyes. It kind of seems like these kids are untouchable and it definitely rubs me the wrong way. Especially when Harper said she would just get a slap on the wrist and some detention for the things she has done - for example, trying to make Maryne bald.. or ya know - branding her for shits and giggles. The guys are super protective over her and sparks are certainly flying. I'm still a bit hesitant on some "relationships" or "feelings" between some people but I feel like everyone genuinely cares for another. I'm pumped to see what the next book will bring - I'm just hoping that I'm getting a more definitive answer to alllll my damn questions.

That ending though just about killed me and I need more now! I also need more Tristan and Maryne! I want to know what he decides ASAP!

Oh and I'm so looking forward to Harper being taken down. (At least I hope that happens!) If you haven't read this series yet and you like a good RH bully read than you need to jump in quick. I'm talking don't put it off like I did since I just started this a few ago and now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long. If I could give more than 5 stars I would in a heartbeat!

    I love the RH in this and I'm not going to say anything but I think Creed is my favorite... I was a bit sad when Miranda got her heart broken. I mean, I knew it would happen but I loved her and I would love to read another scenario where the girls are together :P Anyway, I enjoyed this book. This series is addictive but I feel like the plot isn't very strong or more like there's not a lot of room for plot and the author is doing great to keep the reader engaged and addicted.

I need to know. Now I can't stop reading until the end ;). The author is basically writing cliffhangers at the very beginning of her books! It's quite a good trick when you think about it.

    5 *Sizzling* Stars WOW....This Series was so good😍. For the starters I never expected a high school book to have such a different taste and flavour to it. For all the angst and troubled rich boys it had, the heroine was a badass for all the hardcore situations that were thrown at her. There wasn't one moment where I wasn't reading this book without smiling. This series was so out of context that it actually was funny without being humorous.

I can't, can never image 5 hot, rich, young guys in love with a girl who if -were not actual prince's- were actual billionaires (yes not millionaires, billionaires). But I did! And i loved every second of it!! And what's the best thing about it all - The next part of this series is out in a few days!! *Dancing with joy* This is a book I'll definitely recommend to anyone who love high School romance, rich troubled boys or simply lowkey angst romance book. And you even have enough days to read it before the next one is out! Have fun and Happy Reading Everyone😘!

    Then there were 5 Tristan, Creed, Zayd, Zack, and Wind. I literally read this book and the last without stopping. Almost impossible to review just this one without spoiling parts of the next so... just read it and see what you think. It's definitely a great bully reverse harem read if that's your thing.

    The best of the series so far! I absolutely LOVED this sequel! The issues from previous books seem to have smoothed out, even the prologue is the right amount of teaser and not spoiler, and there's this wonderful flow throughout the book. We get to see each of the ex-bullies as real people, not hiding behind the lies and the bets of the club. I'm incredibly excited to see how it all ends. The best of the series so far!

    LOVE. LOVE. LOOOOOVE. Okay, first of all I am entirely obsessed with the boys of Burberry Prep! These characters are absolutely amazing in their own ways and I've been hooked since the first chapter of book 1 (Filthy Rich Boys). C.M. Stunich has done it again, the feels, the plotting, the total badass revenge (still laughing at Windsor and his barber skills), and last but not least the incredible Maryne. I like her style, her grace, and her ability to seek justice in the best way possible. Waitin LOVE. LOVE. LOOOOOVE. Okay, first of all I am entirely obsessed with the boys of Burberry Prep!

Anyway, so Marnye has finally decided to forgive the guys who bullied her and is now dating all five of them. A fricking prince, her middle school bully and the three idols who also bullied her, but apparently now love her. This book was supposed to be about her spending time with each guy, with their guards down and just getting to know each other. She does spend time but there is hardly and mention of the conversations that they have.. only kissing scenes.. so once again.. give the girl some conversation! Now, I made my peace with the whole dating five guys thing and was actually rooting for two of them. Her middle school bully Zack (who has really changed and plus he gives me Jude Ryder vibes!!) and one of the Idols. While Zack was acing the game, Tristan, the idol, was all broody and self-depreciating.. and that gets on my nerves. I have read way too many books where the guy is continuously in self-doubt about whether or not he deserves the girl even when the girl explicitly states that she likes him!! Get over it man!!Uggggh! Overall, this book gave no indication whatsoever as to which guy she was leaning towards. This book was very vague and ambiguous and a big let down.

    Marnye is still on the war path, but this time she has the boys to help her. I was so happy that Marnye and Creed had their first time with each other. I'm still team Creed and Tristen.

    4.5 Stars I love this book. It was a good third installment and I highly enjoyed myself. There was a lot of character development, relationship development, and DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA, which I am always here for! I adore Marnye’s relationship with each of the guys and I loved seeing them progress in this book. What I Didn’t Like- I took half a star away because of the pacing. There were certain parts of the book that were really slow and I felt were unnecessary. It got tedious after a while. Overall, 4.5 Stars I love this book.

    Well crap. This is an awkward situation that I never thought that I would find myself in, especially with this series. That is why I am not rating this book. If I rated it right now, based off of my feelings, then I would give it 1 star. I know that my emotions are pretty high though, so I am making myself take a step back, and I'll try this one again later. Hopefully. Maybe. Probably not. You need to know that I actually LOVED the first two books in this series. I'm not kidding. I was one of the Well crap.

I know that my emotions are pretty high though, so I am making myself take a step back, and I'll try this one again later. Hopefully. Maybe. Probably not. You need to know that I actually LOVED the first two books in this series. I'm not kidding. I was one of the readers that was obsessively refreshing my Kindle on this book's release day trying to get my hands on this book. I even sent Amazon an ugly e-mail asking why they were taking so damn long to release it. It took two days of refreshing and my agonizing over what the hell was going on to FINALLY get my hands on this book...unfortunately, it took less than two chapters for me to wish I hadn't. Here's the thing and why it's awkward...my problem with this book is very literal, and that is a hard thing to elucidate in regards to a fictional story. I never planned on having these feelings, and I really wish that I hadn't. I loved the story line and loved where it was going...but...within the first chapter of this book, something just struck me as soo fucking wrong, that I couldn't ignore it. I couldn't keep reading and enjoy the book. Hell...I TRIED...but it didn't work, and I finally just gave up on the book and decided I might try again later in a year or so. So here it is... Bullying is VERY real. It happens all the fucking time, and there are kids in school who are not only attempting suicide because of it, but that are actually succeeding in killing themselves. All fiction aside, bullying is no joke. I was first attracted to this story, because it shed bullying in a real light. As appalled as I was by the end of book one, I also knew that it was, while extremely revolting, a feasible truth and probable truth in our society. The major draw for me for book two was Marnye's revenge. I wanted it, hell, I needed it. I wanted a story where the bullies finally got their just dues. I KNEW this was a bully romance, so I was expecting the romance aspect of the story, I really was...but I don't think it happened in quite the way I was expecting. Or maybe it happened how it was supposed to, but I wasn't mentally prepared for it. Whatever the case, it has left me feeling a little off balance. Here's the thing. Most people that are bullied, are not bullied by millionaires, billionaires, super stars, and princes from other countries. They don't naturally have society's standards of perfect figures or flawless skin, and they don't just wake-up looking absolutely breathtaking. I started to find it a little annoying that the ONLY reason Marnye was bullied, was because she was poor (because other than that, she was perfect). While being poor is an unfortunate and common reason for bullying, Marnye didn't seem to suffer from any other "affliction" that most bullied teens do. If you have to ask, "what else is there?" then I suggest you read more on teen bullying. Still...I really enjoyed this series, until this book. Marnye was a character that showed backbone and, while her only flaw was being considered poor, she stood up for herself and others. I liked that. I really liked that she wanted revenge. Most people that are bullied NEVER get that. She made a plan, and she followed it through. … … that is, until this book. Within the first few pages of reading, when Marnye actually started arguing with her dad--HER DAD that was angry on her behalf, mind you--so she could go away with the "idols" because she "just wanted to be around them"...yeah, I lost it. Marnye lost being the girl I thought she was, to being just another fucking Burberry Prep girl. A girl that doesn't care about her parent(s) and cares more about herself and her wants. I'm sorry. You KNOW your dad is sick, you also know that these guys have fucking humiliated you over and over again, but yet...you still want to argue with your dad and spend time with them over him? Even knowing he is sick and has no one else?? REALLY?? I never expected her to destroy these guys, but I really never expected her to just roll over and start panting after them because they showed a "softer" side. If I knew my dad was sick and facing treatments by himself, there isn't a fucking man, woman, thing, or person alive that would keep me from his side. He sure as hell wouldn't have to argue with me about NOT going away on a posh vacation with the boys that fucking bullied and humiliated me a few months prior...hell, he would have to bribe my ass to go out for an evening just so he could have a minute to himself. I just don't understand that bitch. I can't fully explain in the right words why this book's first few chapters hit me wrong, but let's suffice it to say that it did. All I know is that I'm glad that as a bullied young girl, I didn't come across this book during my bullied years. Hell, I probably would have ended up romanticizing and idolizing my damn tormentors, and Lord knows, that is NOT what a bullied young girl needs to do. This one just rubbed me wrong...and FUCK, I wish that it hadn't, because I was really LOVING this damn series. Why the hell did she have to be an ignorant selfish twat in the first few chapters????? I probably could have forgiven it if it didn't involve her dad, but anyone that can fucking choose a guy (or multiple guys in her case) who have treated her like shit over her dying dad? Yeah...I can't fucking do it.

Marnye starts to officially date all the boys and she loses her virginity to a fellow virgin which I found quite sweet. I had the feeling though that she was seeking company of certain boys over others. I am sure she loves all her boys equally, but sometimes it came across like she was playing favourites. I really love Miranda's character and I feel so bad for her that her feelings towards Marnye are not returned in same way. But it is amazing of her be so supportive of Marnye and the unconventional relationship that she has with the boys. She truly is an amazing friend. I am not fan of Lizzie and Tristan's relationship. Just what is going with these two?! Do they still have feelings for each other? Because there were times I felt like they were still in love with each other. I am not sure how exactly the author plans to bring it back around and make it look like Tristan wants Marnye and not Lizzie. I really like Marnye, I do. But what I didn't like is her constantly comparing the poverty she grew up in with the wealth that surrounds her. Yes we get it, your dad is poor, you don't need to keep on reminding us. I think it was meant us to feel sorry for the way she grew up but really, it annoyed me more than anything. I absolutely loved the game of twister as well as truth or date. Damn, things got quite steamy during that one! Also, is it just me or is it a bit weird that the author decided to promote her other works within the story? Each to their own but I am not sure I agree with this method of advertisement. Anyway, I cannot wait to read the last installment and see what Marnye and the boys have in store for Harpies and Company.

    Nothing Happens - Spoilers I can sum up this book easily. It's all filler. Nothing major happens. Revenge? The two things that happened came and went so fast that it hardly mattered. In the end she was all "I am the new queen of the school so I don't need revenge and can settle on forgiveness." Okay. 5 Guys and Bestie Miranda has all fallen for/confessed to her. I seen the Miranda part from the beginning when she said that she hated bullies and could never forgive them (cough cough) and if this w Nothing Happens - Spoilers I can sum up this book easily.

I seen the Miranda part from the beginning when she said that she hated bullies and could never forgive them (cough cough) and if this was a bully romance (another cough), she would end up with Miranda because she was the only true friend. Lizzie is just around for her (and the author) to state how Tristan and/or her are standing next to/looking at each other. That is it. She has the filler/personality of an object and is only around to cause inner drama and have the MC make comments everytime she is around. I think she only says a few lines all book until the end. I get this is a bully romance but the whole thing doesn't make sense. The guys didn't prove themselves and still a part of the club that is still causing her issues. She allowed her TEENAGE hormones to forgive them on a whim so she can kiss and grope them whenever. Their punishment? "Since you bullied/hurt me and tried to kill me, my punishment is for all five of you to share and date me at the same time." Makes no sense - especially when she keeps finding out more about what they did to her that she didn't know and keeps doubting that they aren't playing her again / if they are serious about being in love with her. How is that healthy? There were more errors in this book than the first two - and at one time the author mistakes Miranda for Lizzie. ("I wish I had a devoted harem of five females chasing me") I don't like quitting series and since there is one more left, I need to know if she chooses one, string them along to college or picks none. I am assuming that her sister is going to be team up with Harper and bully her (and jealous about the 5 guys chasing her), that her mother's new baby is her dying father's, her father dies and she is left with living with her mom, her jerk husband and evil sister. I am also assuming that since college keeps coming up and that the guys all want to go that there will be a sequel college series since the academy trend is huge right now.

    Objectively, this is a terrible book. The editing is inconsistent (though better than the majority of RH), the plot is way over the top, the characters are unrealistic, and Marnye’s inner voice is just…not the greatest. But for some reason, I’ve really enjoyed reading this series. There are so many things that I can point to that I hate. Marnye’s preachy attitude and ability to say she doesn’t judge something in the same breath that she then judges it in.

But for some reason, I’ve really enjoyed reading this series. There are so many things that I can point to that I hate. Marnye’s preachy attitude and ability to say she doesn’t judge something in the same breath that she then judges it in. How the guys never really learned anything about not bullying, they’ve just redirected it from Marnye. The total hypocrisy that permeates this novel. And, god, about a thousand more things. Really, there’s nothing I can put my finger on that I love about this series or find appealing, except for the fact that I’ve been slowly devouring it. Reading is rarely objective. I’ve read great books that I just didn’t enjoy, and terrible books that I’ve loved, and this is obviously one of the latter. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with enjoying a terrible book, but I do think you need to go into it and be willing to admit the flaws inherent in the novel. There’s a lot of things that the characters do in this series that would be absolutely unacceptable in real life, and if I were to be confronted with any of these people in the flesh I might have some choice words. I certainly wouldn’t want any younger, impressionable girls reading this novel as they try to figure out boys and relationships. This is never going to be a series that I recommend to anyone. There’s a lot of things that happen in this novel that I am entirely against. But, personally, I’ve enjoyed reading this series, and I intend to finish it off.

    3.5ish Stars After finishing book 2 and that cliffy, I had to jump into the next book. While I enjoyed the second book, this one...I struggled a bit with it. The main character Marnye had gotten stronger in book 2...in this book, she was a bit wishy-washy for me. I enjoyed the male characters and have my thoughts on who she will pick. I still feel that there is a certain side character that better get what's coming to her in the final book.

That being said, I will read the final book to see what happens with "the club" and to finally find out who she picks.

    I liked volume three of the series, "The Envy of Idols", very much, but not as much as its predecessor. This was partly due to the lack of depth in the characters, which was not developed further, and partly due to the recurring events (Halloween etc.), which were already familiar to the reader and therefore had no special emotional factor. But it was also due to the fact that many things were announced (blatant revenge actions of the antagonists), which then didn't really happen, so that the ex I liked volume three of the series, "The Envy of Idols", very much, but not as much as its predecessor.

Nevertheless, it was again thrilling and dramatic and a really successful sequel, which points to a good finale of the series.
