Publisher's Summary

They called me trash. They called me whore. They called me so much worse.

They told me I didn’t belong in their world, and you know what? Maybe they were right. But I can’t just let this go. I’m still a Hildebrand, after all, and I’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of what that legacy means. There are secrets buried in Roseland, and I’m determined to dig them up. To make the princes pay for what they did.

Trying to exact vengeance from hundreds of miles away isn’t easy, though, until a mysterious ally offers help that could change everything.

At least someone is on my side in all of this.

I just have no idea who it is.

Please note: Defiant Princess is a reverse harem, high school bully romance, the second book in the Boys of Oak Park Prep trilogy. It contains cursing and sexual situations.

I loved it!

A great second book to this series. You can't help but fall in love with the characters. The narrator does a wonderful job telling the story. She really gets the emotion and tone right. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Talia is the bomb dot com!

I love the main female character! She’s not at all whiny or anything annoying. She’s strong and resilient but still has a conscience. I love that about her. Everything she was doing for retaliation ate at her. She’s truly a good person. We learn more about the guys in this book and get some answers but get way more questions too. Who hired the attorney??Who is the mystery guy in the pictures?? What actually happened between the parents?? Also she looses her V card!!! She struggles (understandingly) with trusting the guys again. She wants to but is cautious. This book also ends with a huge cliffhanger. Wow!

Needs to be read

Revenge, empowerment, torment, and sexual tension oh my. Four versus one, and one versus four. This book kept me on my toes, and had me by the feels. I absolutely could not put it down and read it in a day. If you’re contemplating it just stop and do it.

Love this series!

The narration and story telling are superb! If you think young adult/high school romances aren’t your thing, you need to give these books a try. I’m completely hooked!

Holy moly...where do I even begin?!?!

I was engrossed while listening to Book 1 of the Boys of Oak Prep series and I am not gonna lie, I was tempted to not read/listen to Book 2 because of the horribleness of their treachery and destruction of "Idaho"'s life. I couldn't believe their audacity. But holy moly, does Talia come back with a vengeance!! I was not expecting to love this story and be sucked in like I was with Savage Royals, but boy was I wrong/surprised!!

First with the story...I am not going to give away spoilers but enjoyed Defiant Princess more than Savage Royals and fell in love with Callie's writing on the spot. I thought some of the concepts were kinda childish and you could see what was going to happen within the first couple chapters, but the emotion and feelings Callie was able to force from me was epic to say the least. I fell in love with the boys as we got to see their background. It doesnt take away from the injustice of their actions or how they deserve every bad thing in this book after what they did to Talia. I wouldn't have been able to forgive them because I would have broken, unlike Talia. I think Elijah and Finn won my heart in this book. There are some scenes that are hard for me to read, but the Princes stepped in when they needed to and Talia was there for them with some brutal reality checks and annihilation of the walls they erected around themselves. I will say the "former best friends" really irked me and honestly, I would be more pissed at them over the Princes in some respects. I was not a fan of how that their relationship was brought back but oh well. Only dislike of the book actually.

For narration, Kasi does a phenomenal job!! I can't praise her enough. I barely heard any mistakes and really thought it brought this world back to life. She elevated the story, which is the main mission for a narrator of a story. Fantastic job, thank you for a great performance.

Overall, I wish I could rate these audiobooks higher. Yes, the story isn't the most original, but the delivery and relationships/feelings that are growing and forming are amazing. I couldn't even wait for Book 3 to release on audio. I bought the book because this one ends on a horrible cliffhanger. I yelled at my iPad on the plane when it started the normal ending to an audiobook haha. Now that 3 is available, I am gonna get that one and relive the ending of this fabulous series ❤️

OMG!!

I don’t even know what to say! This series is freaking awesome. The next time someone asks me what audiobook destroyed me it would be this series as this book is just as good as the first. Never has an author destroyed me the way Callie Rose has with this series. Kaia Hollowell was brilliant!!! She brought this story to life perfectly.

Great second book!

I enjoyed this book alot and loved the narration. In this one we get more background on the princes. Talia is back at oak prep and being bullied once again but this time she has her own revenge plans. Some questions that we were left with from the last book are answered in this one but more questions arise. It ends in one hell of a cliffhanger and I can not wait for the next book to come out!

The Royals have met their match!!!

Talia is returned to Idaho after leaving Oak Park Prep after the Royals completely blindside her at the awards ceremony. She is devastated, but determined to get back at them and her grandmother somehow.

She is visited by a lawyer, who informs her that she has an inheritance left by her mother. They go to court to emancipate her, the judge rules she has to return to school, at Oak Park.

When she returns, she begins a campaign to pay the royals back. She tells them that anything anyone, the royals OR their minions, do to her, she will do to one of them. She follows through, all the while she is researching the Royals... just the way they taught her to research others. She has ammunition against all of them, in a notebook and on a flash drive.

Many, many things happen! But they, once again, gain her trust... and she gains theirs. They become friends again, and they go with her to buy a car. Then, someone peppers them campus with her research. It wasn’t her... and she tells them this. Do they believe her?? Or... are they responsible for what happens to her at the end of this book???

What a great listen this is!!! Callie Rose is fantastic!!! And Kasi Hollowell is perfect for these voices!!!

Even Better than the Last BUT

Book 2 holds a HUGE bookhangover worthy Clifhanger.

I enjoyed this audio more as the heroine matures into the decions that bring her closer to the boys of her Harem, we where given more background info on our main guys while also they begin to earn the forgiveness of their shared love interest. Recomend, love, best bully romance of the year. narration hands down mindblowinly amazing.

OMG!

I heard this series was a trilogy so I expected a cliffhanger but wow! That was quite a cliffhanger! I think I'm going to have to get the kindle version now so I don't have to wait for the next audiobook to come out. What a captivating series this has been so far. I can't wait to see how it all ends. Kasi Hollowell has done a fantastic job at bringing this series to life.

OMG! What happened

This was a great addition to book one, Callie Rose did a wonderful job with Talia's come back. She was no going down without a fight and with her secret someone she was able to come back for her revenge. I couldn't wait to see what append one chapter to the next and the crazy cliffhanger at the end took my breath away. Can't wait for book three.

Omg

The first book in this series did not impress me BUT this one; Wow, I couldn’t turn it off. The storyline is progressing and thus ends on a cliffhanger which I normally don’t like very much but it’s worth it. Can’t wait for the next😯
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings
Lots of feelings and the dialogues is good, the whole story flows so much better than the previous.
I feel like I know the characters better now as their secrets is revealed slowly.
The chemistry is great between all the main characters.
This book will have you longing for the next, I held my breath at the ending. Addictive listen 🤩

Narrator:
Clear pronunciation and read with feelings

Love, love, love this series...

What the ****! Once again Callie Rose is killing me with these endings. This one was just as bad as the ending to book one. And by bad, of course I mean jaw dropping and brilliant.

However once again she gave listeners a story that was enthralling and had me both wanting to hurry and hear what's next and at the same time never wanting it to end.

I loved seeing the growth and changes in Talia. I also liked how the storylines with the Princes were done. I got things I definitely wanted and also some nice surprises.

This story was brought to life again by Kasi Hollowell. I can't say enough good things about her performance. I loved her voice in book one and still loved it here.

This book was just fantastic. And now I NEED book three to come out on audio asap.

Captivating

Picks up where book 1 leaves off. I loved the first book and this was just as good. An angsty listen with great characters. I love how the author continues the story in this book! The cliffhanger is even more wild than before. Cant wait for book 3!!!

The narration is absolutely fabulous and is consistent with the performance in book 1. I am very pleased with this narrator.

These characters are ruthless! I love them. I really need the next book as this second book has asked more questions rather than answering my previous questions. Great storyline with brilliant characters.

whoa!!

When does book 3 audio come out? I might have to just read book 3. I don't think I can wait. Defiant princess was so good. Callie Rose has done a phenomenal job of writing great characters, awesome scenes, great descriptions and all the words. I love Talia and I empathize and rejoice in her sorrows and victories. Kasi Hollowell does such an awesome job with the narration that his story just came to life for me. I just got lost in it until the end. Awesome!!!

Absolutely enjoyed this book. There are some similarities to another certain book but overall they're completely different. Definitely would listen to it again.
