Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Meagan Brandy comes an enemies-to-lovers new-adult romance full of morally corrupt and power-driven teenagers. 

"Girls like you aren't exactly welcomed at a place like this, so keep your head down and look the other way." 

Those were the exact words of my social worker when she dropped me in my newest hellhole, a place for "troubled teens". 

I didn't listen, and now I'm on their radar. 

They expect me to play along in their games of hierarchy, to fall in line in the social order they've deemed me fit for. 

Too bad for them, I don't follow rules. Too bad for me, they're determined to make sure I do.  

Inconceivably attractive and treated like kings...these are the boys of Brayshaw High. 

And I'm the girl who got in their way. 

This is book one in a three-book series.

Hooked from first page

This book has really made my study at so much more enjoyable, I have only recently become a fan of audibles but this book really has made me love them in a whole new way. I can spend hours studying form my nursing degree, and listening to a great story with fantastic characters and how they evolve has made it a pleasure to re-listen too.

The way the raven and he boys tried to stay away from each other but her sassy attitude just drew them in one by one until they found out they were actually protecting her and caring for her just as she did for them, but neither of them would admit it at first how they needer her and she needed them.

Gritty⭐️Angsty⭐️Ballsy⭐️Sexy

So glad I downloaded this book!
The best way to describe this book for all you “bookies” (like me=book junkie) is that it’s is a delicious cross between two of my FAV series in this genre,
Fallen Crest by Tijan and Silver Swan By Amo Jones. It’s not as “light” as Fallen Crest but not “yet” as dark as Silver Swan. The setting is the same, a core of seemingly orivelaged hot alpha boys and a “fish out of water” girl, for lack of better term.
Let me tell you though, the
Boys of Brayshaw is decidedly more wicked, in large part because of the main female protagonist (Raven) whose had some life lessons (hard ones) that have molded her into an opinionated ballsy chick! I Loved her!
She didn’t seem at all contrived, her actions with what was exposed in this first book lines up realistically with her background.
Now, as with all the series I’ll mention below, you still have to suspend belief for some of it (I had a pretty wild young adult life but these people...Whoah)
I suppose that’s why it’s fiction! And it’s fiction I LOVE💗
Brayshaw has the intrigue, drama, suspense spicy characters, unknown enemy/friends, subplot hinted but not easily guessed and very serious dark subject matter as well as fun sexy times.
Oh, with gorgeous alpha boys too!
(Crossbreed Mason & Bishop = Maddox) 🥰❗️❤️⭐️‼️

Back to reality; if you liked this here are some recommends, OR if you’ve read/listened to below and are thinking about downloading this;
Amo Jones “silver Swan” series
(Amo heroine badass, and Bishop a lot like Maddox) and then there is;
LA Cotton “Wicked Bay” series
Erin Watt “the royals” series
LA Casey “Slater Brothers” series
Chloe Walsh “ Carter kids” series
Chloe Walsh “ Boys of Tommen”
Penelope Douglas “Corrupt”
Abbi Glines”Fallen too far”
And yes, Fallen Crest by Tijan

Brayshaw

Them Boys!! I love how each one of them love and care for her in a different way. And I love how hard she fights it but deep down she truly loves them with everything.

Performance: Stephen Dexter- Please do every audiobook ever made! His voice 😛
Both of them were amazing! Everything about this book and performance FANTASTIC!!

Loved the audio version

The town is run by the Brayshaw, the school is run by the Brayshaw. The Brayshaw are kings and their word is law. So when Raven is relocated to the Brayshaw House by the system she is expected to follow the rules. Except Rae isn't a follower and she ignores rules. She challenges Maddoc, Captain, and Royce by her very existence. But instead of destroying her, they realize they need her. She is one of them, meant to be a part of their family. Too bad she won't allow it.

I'm torn. Yes, I was entertained. I was also disappointed and frustrated. This story is not completely original and that's fine. I don't mind variations of popular books as long as they bring their own flavor to the story. There must be an original angle and the characters must be authentic. I think this story mostly succeeded here. Sure, the guys all play their role as baby mobsters but each has individual touches to make them stand on their own. The Brayshaw backstory is good and the town's compliance along with the Graven rivalry is entertaining even if it is a bit far-fetched. That's to be expected. My disappointment is with Rae herself. She could have been so much more. Her effortless is appealing, her beauty and sexiness and the fact she doesn't use them as expected make these qualities even more. I know others think she is the definition of tough. Not me. Yes, she can fight, yes her mouth goes non-stop. I admit she puts up a good front. But she is a fake. She claims not to care but she follows the set of rules put in place by the system and her upbringing. She's ruled by fear. If she keeps up her cold exterior, self-sabotages, pushes people away then they can't hurt her by letting her down or leaving her. Why is it better to hurt yourself? If she refuses to ever trust, to ever allow herself to be loved WHAT IS THE POINT? She has no life. No reason. It's all a waste. Internal strength is so much harder to have than physical strength. In everything that matters, Rae is a coward. My frustration comes from the lack of communication. This is a book where there are easily 3x more glares, lip licking, and growls than there are meaningful words shared.

The ending was the biggest disappointment of all. You can rationalize Rae's choice any way you want but it is betrayal, pure and simple. I have no choice but to get the next book. I'm all in. I know that it's going to kill me though. There's going to be cheating. You can pretend it's not and technically I guess you will be correct, but again that's just semantics. Bottom line, it will be more betrayal, more lying, more deception and that means cheating. By the time the dust settles and reasons are revealed, I will be interested to see if I care. I hope that I do.

I listened to this book on audio. I think with parts of the story that it may actually be better on tape than in print. Jillian Macie is unbelievably good as Rae. She embodies every aspect of the girl; doesn't hide one thing. I was able to experience her character on a much deeper level than if I were reading about her. Stephen Dexter also did a fantastic job performing as all of the Brayshaws. He captured each one individually. Not an easy feat. There were a couple of missteps with a couple of throwaway characters but there was no real impact. I was impressed with this audio way more than most.

Boys of Brayshaw High

At first I wasn’t attracted to this story much from all the back and forth banter between Ray and the boys but as I continued listening I got involved in the story. The story almost reminded me of Corrupt by Penelope Douglas. But nearing the end, definitely changed my persecutions on how I thought the story was going to go. The ending is such a cliff hanger— but I’m so so glad I can’t jump right into the second book to begin right back when it ended. I’m anxious to see how this will play out.

Overall I would recommend this series, which is why I gave it a 5-stars. :)

Omigod! first grownup high school book.

There is nothing I hate more than PG 13 high school book plot. I swear these author forget what is like to be in high school. Everyone is having sex and they deal with issue like shithy parents and bullies. I love this book so much I can't remember when a audiobook kept me up. I went to work feeling like ugh! and could not wait for my breaks and lunch to listen some more.

You need to read this!

These narrators are perfect! They did such a great job. Oh.My.Gosh. I’ve been waiting months for this book and it did not disappoint! There is so much in this book that is just done right! Meagan does not disappoint when it comes to writing bad ass characters so amazing you want to be them and have their life (even if it is fictional). Rae is one of the best characters I have ever gotten to read. She is this crazy hot, not taking any crap from anyone, brave leader with so many other qualities she shows throughout this book. And the boys of brayshaw.... wow just wow! Each of them are just perfect and have their own stories to share or tell throughout. Cap and Royce are like two brothers that you love to hate on but would do anything for if they’re on your side. If they’re not on your side, you don’t want to cross them. Maddoc is someone you want in your corner or any surface really (no seriously anywhere). I loved everything in this book, there was so much going on and many different scenes that played out differently than I saw coming. Once I think I know what’s gonna happen next, there’s a curveball thrown in and it’s so good I can’t not like it. All of the side characters wether they’re friends or foes are all written so well! I hope Bass, Vienna, and even Victoria show up more in the next one. I’m not giving anything away but Meagan I need the next book right away!

Great

Some really good listening. First I’ve heard of Meagan Brandy and won’t be my last.
She made me feel like I knew these characters. I felt. That’s a lot for me.
You won’t be disappointed. Promise.

I’m a Brayshaw Girl for Life !!!!!

Boys of Brayshaw High
Brayshaw Series Book 1
by Meagan Brandy
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
ebook version


Can somebody smack my behind for waiting until now to read this book? Although I gotta confess that having to wait less for book 2 and 3 versus all the months you guys have been waiting has been good to my heart.

Meagan Brandy, you ROCK MY WORLD with this book. I’m a new addition to the Brayshaw Girls Pack and expect to keep been one forever.

Boys of Brayshaw High it’s a high school/sport romance like no other. It’s super intriguing, angsty, alluring, mysterious, sexy, sassy and so freaking hot. It keep you on edge the WHOLE BOOK. I lost count how many time I screamed OMG and let’s not forget that Brandy made me sit in my comfy sofa all day reading, neglecting my house shores because I couldn’t for the life of me put it down. It took me 1 DAY. I had just 4 hours of sleep after finishing and I not even sorry. This was pure PERFECTION.

Just a little recap of what the story is about. You guys know me, I hate spoiling books so I’ll try to explain without telling too much.

𝙁𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙮 𝙧𝙪𝙣𝙨 𝙙𝙚𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙣 𝙗𝙡𝙤𝙤𝙙.

Three guys, the Brayshaw brothers. They rule the town and school. Big, wealthy, strong, scary and with a bad boy sexy edge to them. Names are Maddoc, Captain and Royce Brayshaw. In come the new menace and addition to Brayshaw High, Raven Carver. She is as beautiful as she is sassy. The badassness of this girls is OFF THE CHARTS HOT. She is resilient, strong, independent, beautiful, dangerous and untamed. Which is a big no no for the guys accustom to get everybody in line and do whatever they want them to do.

Imagine meeting their match and wanting to put her on a leash. Good luck Maddoc. You sure didn’t see her coming.

“𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙛𝙪𝙡, 𝙗𝙞𝙜 𝙢𝙖𝙣, 𝙏𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙨𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙨 𝙖 𝙡𝙤𝙩 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚 𝙖 𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜. 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙜𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙞𝙨𝙣’𝙩 𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮 𝙨𝙤𝙛𝙩 𝙖𝙩 𝙢𝙮 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙩.”

The plot, the writing style were made to keep you guessing, reading and waiting for the bomb to drop. Just go listen to it you guys I’m telling you is was BRILLIANT. Narrated by Jillian Macie and Stephen Dexter. They did a pretty fantastic performance. Rayven baddass attitude was very present thanks to Jillian. Stephen brought to life the powerful alpha and dangerous aura of Maddoc.

Addictive

This right here is some deliciously naughty, addictingly angst you stuff. I wasn’t always sure I was on board with how the story was progressing, but I was completely unable to stop listening nonetheless. It’s a bit of a wild ride, a little dark, a little scandalous, but it left me hungry for more and dying to know where things go from here!

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK!

I loved, loved, loved this series. This book is so good. Ray is such a kick-ass and can hold her own. I love all 3 guys, Maddox, Captain and Royce and i'm a little disappointed that it's not a reverse harem. I thought that's where the book was heading, but never the less it is still fantastic. There's a helluva cliff-hanger. I'm impatiently waiting for the next book. I need it asap. Narrators did a great job.
