Bully King; Kings of High Court College #1
(#1 within a series)
by: J.A. Huss
A college age secret society, secret twists, a twist on a reverse harem, and J.A. Huss is the mastermind behind it all.
Enter a world where secrets weigh more than gold. A society that devalues human life, but those without values want to get in.
High Court College is a prestigious college where one reference can make your entire life path. Very few get the chance to attend the elite school, but if you do your life is set.
Cooper, Ax, and Lars have been friends for ages and all three of them want out of the poisonous place they have grown up. Unfortunately, their fathers are three of the most prominent men in town. The Mayor, the Judge, and the Chairman of High Court. The three powerful men control basically everything around them, which include their sons. They have mandated that the three of them (Cooper, Ax, and Lars) would be in charge of the incoming recruits of the secret society of the Fangs and Feathers for the summer. An old society that performs heinous acts throughout their eight weeks together, but will ultimately bring the recruits tighter together once it is complete.
These acts are not your typical hazing or drinking games. These students have money and power and with that type of leeway comes deviousness that only the rich can buy themselves out of.
This bully romance is unlike anything you will ever read. It is also not like a typical reverse harem book either. As J.A. Huss is unlike any typical author I ever read.
When Cadee first appears in the book as a meek and timid heroine. Do not be fooled by her first impression. Cadee is stronger than just about everyone living in the world around her. Her transformation throughout the story is one that will make you smile, but also made me wonder if she has her own secrets to use as currency too.
Bully King is told from two varying POV, but there are lots of supporting characters that make up this world and have an impact on Cadee and Cooper. There is also a lot of secrecy and doubt cast upon the entire High Court College, but I expect nothing less with a Huss book, which really ups the mystery and makes the entire book a page turner.
As this is only the first book in this series, J.A. Huss has left the door open for so much potential on where the storyline can head. I’m looking forward to the next installment and where these characters are going to lead us, especially how they are going to use their secrets to unravel the very fabric of the High Court world.
Call them whatever you want.
Around here, we just call them Kings.
Luxe watches and bespoke suits.
The Kings of High Court College act like Gods.
And Cooper Valcourt is the worst of them.
He is the bully king.
His family owns everything.
And his mission is to put me in my place and send me packing.
But Cooper and I have a history filled with secrets.
And everyone knows that power doesn’t come from having money.
It comes from holding secrets.
And I’m holding one of his.
A very dark secret that can bring him to his knees.
Bully King is new-adult, dark, bully romance from New York Times bestselling author JA Huss featuring boys with power and girls at their mercy. It’s a campus shrouded in lies and a summer rush into an elite society that can propel a poor girl straight into the ruling class.
If… she’s willing to pay the price.
