BOOK REVIEW: The Boys of Brayshaw High & Trouble at Brayshaw High by Meagan Brandy

THE BOYS OF BRAYSHAW HIGH and TROUBLE AT BRAYSHAW HIGH are the first two books in a three part series authored by Meagan Brandy.

TROUBLE AT BRAYSHAW HIGH was recently released on May 28, 2019, and BOYS OF BRAYSHAW HIGH was released earlier this year.

This was my first time reading Meagan Brandy's work, but it definitely won't be the last. THIS SERIES DID NOT DISAPPOINT. 

Do you prefer new adult novels with high angst and high drama? If you answered yes, you definitely want to check out this series. It feels a bit like a mashup of The Royals series by Erin Watt, Fallen Crest High by Tijan, and Bully by Penelope Douglas. And, I mean that in the best possible way.

The Brayshaw High series centers around a feisty young girl by the name of Raven Carver.

Raven takes no prisoners.
She doesn't care about the opinions of others.
She's quick to act to shut down all forms of injustice, and she doesn't back down from anyone. 

Born to a neglectful and abusive mother, and having no real friends of her own, Raven doesn't have much to lose and constantly acts out at school. After she's expelled from three schools in a few short months, a social worker steps in and sends her to live at a girl's home. 

Raven immediately captures the attention of Brayshaw High's well-respected, and highly sought after, Brayshaw brothers: Maddoc, Captain, and Royce.

Things start to get a bit weird and complicated at this point. See... Maddoc, Captain, and Royce aren't blood related. They were adopted by the same man shortly before he was arrested and sent to prison for thirteen years on charges of sexual assault. Maddoc is the only brother old enough to remember his dad from childhood, but all three have remained close to him during his time behind bars. The story that follows Raven meeting the Brayshaw brothers is complex and impossible to explain without spoiling the book for you.

The most important thing you need to know is the Brayshaw backstory. The Brayshaw family once worked alongside the Graven family (another wealthy and powerful family) to control the entire town. This was how things were handled for years and years and years. Until... something happened that caused a rift between the two families before their father was arrested, and now the two families are at war with each other over control of the town. And, the brothers, who don't even have Brayshaw blood flowing thru their veins, are the last three family members that remain.

But... could Raven be their secret weapon?

I truly can't wait to see how it all ends!
