Publisher's Summary

After surviving foster care and a high school that breeds gang members and drug dealers, I've finally found my path to freedom: emancipation and a full ride scholarship at the ultra-exclusive Hannaford Prep.

All I have to do is survive.

After attracting the wrong sort of attention from the richest boy in the country, pissing off the hottest guy in school, and being humiliated in front of my favorite rock idol, I am now the target of the most popular, and cruelest, group in the freshman class.

They want my blood.

They can have it.

I'm stronger than any spoilt rich kid.

But can I survive the game the Juniors have started with me as the goal? Now every boy at Hannaford wants to have me.

All except the three I want.

Ash, Harley, and Blaise don't care about the game, all they care about is destroying me.

Good but

I’m frustrated because I liked the story a lot but the ages of the characters is insane. It’d make more sense if they were even just seniors or in college and even then it’s a stretch.

By far, my all time FAVORITE!!!!

I NEVER write reviews. That being said should encourage anyone who has yet to listen/read this series to BUY IT NOW! You will not regret it! I love the characters, the plot, all the twists, and I especially love that the main character is an absolute bad bitty! 😉 I CAN'T wait for the rest of the series to be uploaded to Audible. I have bought and read them all, but I want to be able to listen to them as well. This storyline is so epic that I'd be thrilled to see it made into a movie/TV show, but unfortunately that's probably wishful thinking.

Absolutely Amazing!

I have read and reread this book at least a dozen times. It was awesome to sit back and listen to this narration. Great job bring this book to life! Can't wait for the next one. Definitely worth the credit.

I love this book

At first I wasn’t sure I was a fan of the narrator but it was actually really good narration. I love J Bree and all her books so it was a great experience listening to it.

Book: 5 stars.. Narration: 1 star

I love this book and everything by J Bree! I’ve literally read this at least 5 times and it is amazing.. but for the life of me I do not like the way the person narrates this. The male voices are not good at all and it would be hard to differentiate when someone else is talking if I hadn’t already read this book so many times. I really hope the next ones come out but with either a different narrator or her and a male one.

Pretty good!

I wanna start by saying I 100% aged these characters up to 18 in my head. This series has floated around in the groups I’m in & my bookstagram feed for sooo long. I got the audio during that huge sale, and I was definitely pleasantly surprised! Action packed, intriguing, FMC who’s pretty bad@ss, broody love interests, enemies to lovers. All in all, I enjoyed it! I do plan to continue with the series.

Very enjoyable

The best part about this book is the FMC Esclipse, or Lips, Anderson. She's a fighter, is confident, and very goal oriented. She is determined to graduate Hannaford Prep and earn a place at an Ivy League college, no matter the threats and bullying that comes alongside the education. This book is in no way realistic, with 15 year olds being gang leaders, but that's all part of the fun!

4.5 Stars for the audio and the story

I've read the book and bought the audiobook on a whim. In fact, I don't like most audiobooks.

Book Review (Condensed): The story gets 4.5 stars because it includes a pet peeve (or mainly because it was shown on page instead of told off page to the reader). However, I acknowledge that the issue (not the 'told part) does farther the storyline in later books and that this book is about Lips finding herself. Lips finding herself is my favorite part of the book and a great introduction to the book series. She has to understand herself before she begins any true and real relationships. So, forewarning, there is NO romance in this book and only has light flirting and banter slightly implied.

Audiobook: The Audiobook gets 4.5 Stars and this is the first, official pleasure reading Audiobook I've ever finished, plus I have the intention of listening to the other books in the series on audio. The reason it gets a 4.5 Stars is because sometimes the narrator has a difficult time narrating the guy's voices, especially if they are all in one scene, and if I hadn't read the book several times prior to listening to it, I would not always know when Lips was speaking versus having inner thoughts. Nonetheless, both of these aspects are extremely difficult to narrate, so I rounded to 5 Stars to leave the review instead of the 4 Stars.

Surprisingly good

So let me say I waited a long time before finally giving in to this series. I hate bully romances and can’t ever understand why someone who’s been bullied to death, would ever eventually fall for her captors, but to have a strong FMC who can fight her own battles and doesn’t let them bully her definitely helps. I was completely enthralled with this book and can’t believe I waited so long to listen. I do have to say that the age thing makes absolutely no sense and what 15 year old has a body full of tats? These are children and I can’t even think of them as hot cause I just feel like a sick person for doing so, so that definitely takes a star away. These people should be in college at least. Other than that, it was a great listen and I’m excited for the next book to see what happens to Lips next.

Loved this book!

This was actually my first audible book I have listened to.

I haven’t been able to get into a book through audible yet and I loved this book after reading it so I wanted to try it out via audio.

I loved it! I only started yesterday and finished it today, the narration was amazing and Vanessa did a great job at bringing the book to life!

Can’t wait to move onto book 2 now. 😊

This is the cherry on the cake

i absolutely love Vanessa moyen she is an exceptional artist and so great at what she does, but giving lips and the guys a voice has blown me away i love this story anyway and its one of my top re- reads but these audios are going to be the BEST i cannot wait for the others, amazing job, hearing it come to life instead of reading it is something else and from someone who has over 500 audio books and all of vanessa's this has to be my NO 1 of all of them j bree is an extremely talented story teller and i cant wait for more from the bay

FABULOUS!

This was an amazing audiobook! The narration was awesome - as is expected from Vanessa Moyen - adding extra characterisation to the characters that I wouldn’t have thought of while reading the book. This was the first time reading a book by J Bree and I was pleasantly surprised. The storyline is amazing and has been written really well to seamlessly narrate the story. Lips - the female protagonist - is amazing an holds such a strong personality and mentality despite the hand she has been given in life. I love how she handles the boys as well, and the way she reacts to the treatment she is given in school. The story does take a twist near the end as well that will definitely leave you desperate to read the next book. This is definitely a book I would recommend to those who have read the blurb and think they will like it. I hope you find that you love this book just as much as I do. Enjoy!

Excellent.

I’m a huge J Bree fan.

I haven’t listened or enjoyed many audio books previously. However I thought this would be a safe bet as I love this series and this author already.

And I was right. Vanessa Moyen has a lovely voice and although I personally read lips with more sass I did appreciate her calm tones. Despite the fact that I’ve read this book many times and know all the twists I found myself drawn in and desperate to continue listening. I originally downloaded this so I could listen while doing my crochet (don’t judge me, it’s autumn in Australia and I live to crochet in the cooler months) I’ve ended up listening every chance I get.

Can’t wait for the rest of the series.
