Summary

A long time ago, I was one of them. Now I’m back, and they hate me for it.

Plucked out of the harsh life I was living and thrust into a world of unimaginable wealth, power, and privilege, all I want to do is keep my head down and survive until graduation.

But they have other plans - Mason, Finn, Elias, and Cole.

Everyone at my new school calls them the Princes, and that’s exactly what they act like. They always get what they want...and who they want.

And they want me.

I’m not sure why, since they all seem to hate me.

The Princes are gorgeous, flawless, and cruel. They own this town, and they’re determined to own me, too.

To break me.

What they don’t know is that I’ve already been broken once.

I won’t let it happen again.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Savage Royals is a reverse harem high school bully romance, the first book in the Boys of Oak Park Prep trilogy. It contains cursing and sexual situations.

I was hooked from the beginning of this story to omg end. Money, power, control and privilege is the perks for the Princes, of Oak Park Prep school, but Talia the new girl is faced with revenge, hatred and lies in the form of being bullied. Like I said in my first sentence there is an omg end and it’s a cliffhanger, which I have to get listening to ASAP with Kasi Hollowell letting me what happens next.

Great listen!

I loved this RH bully romance! Great characters and story, I was hooked from start to finish and am eagerly waiting for the next book. Great narrator, she really brought the characters to life by using unique voices and lots of emotion. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Heartbreaking perfection!

This was a really good bully romance!
Talia is a very real and kinda raletable character. I really like how strong she is - even though she has been broken! The boys are also really well written - even though I don't feel like I know them as much, as I should by the end of the first book (but maybe there's a reason for that).
I also REALLY liked the pacing of the story, since it felt like a year went by, bit not like there were any huge time jumps to get there, which is amazing!

I really love dual narrators, so that is something, which I really wished this story had, but Kasi Hollowell did a fabulous job making the characters come alive.
Overall really good listen! #AudiobookObsession

Talia's story

I would like to give the narration 4.5 stars. My only complaint about the narration is that I couldn't the tell guys apart from just their voices, though I understand that's tough when there are several of the same age/background. Other than that it was very well done.

There are many things that I didn't like about the story itself. For example, I would have preferred if the characters were older than 16. I was disappointed to see friendships put on the back burner even when the Talia was aware that it was happening. I didn't like the boys behavior towards other people at any point in the book, and it made them generally unlikable characters. Fortunately, with it being the first book in the series, it seemed to be more about Talia and not about romantic relationships.

That being said, I still rated the story a 4 because despite all those things, I wanted to keep listening to hear what happened next. I would actually still like to hear what happens next in the trilogy, even though I don't like any of the guys.

Wow!

Well, that was not how I expected Savage Royals to end! I know it's part of a trilogy but what a twisted cliffhanger! I don't want to give away any details but I can say that I can't wait to listen to the next book. Kasi Hollowell did a great job bringing this story to life.

My Thoughts on Savage Royals

This was the kind of book that draws you in so quickly that you find yourself lost in the story. You don’t want to come out of this perfectly crafted world until it’s over. By the end of it you are floored by what you just read. And since this was only part one, you’re desperate for more.

Callie Rose told one heck of a story with Royal Savages. I honestly didn’t know what to believe from one moment to the next, and I did not see that ending coming. However it was so well done that not only do I need Defiant Princess asap, I want to go see what else I can find from this amazing author to devour it all.

I also loved the narrator choice for this book. Kasi Hollowell is new to me, but I definitely want more of her. She just seemed really well suited for the main character, Talia. She did a pretty good job pulling off the 4 male characters as well as the many side characters. I certainly hope she continues into book two and I hope to hear her voice in more books in the future.

I have already read this exact story but...

I have already read this story but in a different book and author. This is pretty much the exact story of the first book of filthy rich boys of burberry prep series. All the way down to the ending reveal. 4 guys one girl. Act like they hate her then pretend that they like her. End of school assembly reveal shocking video to destroy girl. Girl vows to get back at them next book!

Are there any original stories anymore?

Preliminary Review

UPDATE** This book read like a group of 4 jerks easily manipulating a naive pliable little girl into doing what they want. There was no discernable reason why they all stopped bullying her and wanted her all of a sudden.

Why can't I ever find a good girl falls for her bully book. Great writing style, good characters, good pacing, logical progression of the story without a DUMB FEMALE masquerading as a strong female. I know it's possible. I found those qualities in The Curse of The Gods and Seraph Black series. The bully should show some form of a starting redemption before the female shows any inkling of interest. It's a smack in the face when the female is docile, kisses the bully, let's him touch her in anyway while he's being nothing but a jerk. Like getting her shot with paintballs in the chest, stuffing her locker with garbage, humiliating her in the cafeteria, having most of the student body torment her, calling her Idaho trash. Being attracted to the bully's is one thing but completely pretending like she wasn't tormented by them in their presence was insulting my intelligence. I mean writing women like they can't control their lady parts is insulting. This girl was almost going to, just about to, soon she was going to, before she could do... to death. So many things happened with no logical intent. Just like a bunch of incidents to fill a book. So dissapointing.

Bully Romance

I’m dead and I’m dying. The ending.... how do I cope?

I’m such a sucker for a bully romance and this does not disappoint. I’m completely in my feelings and need book 2 immediately.

Oh Talia, if you need to tag me in I’ve got your back. Have you ever just want to rip throats out for a character because you will after this.

Kasi does a wonderful job narrating

One of the best B.R I've read this year

This was a very realistic Bully romance without the extensive over dramatization some hold, it was written with a clifhanger you'll accept as an ending or deny this heroine would allow it to end this way.

Best part of this story was the heroine isn't one to be a pushover to take everything that happens and she will further prove herself on the continuation, the performance is impresive as she creates a uniquenes to each character that appears on this audio.

Fantastic Story & Narration🎧 Mind Blowing!

Ok, so bullies really piss me off, but after hearing rave reviews about how great the story and narration was I had to listen and I must say I am very happy I did. Callie Rose has a wonderful writing style, she grabbed my attention and my heart right from the start and held it to the end. Her characters are complex and continue to develop, I just know there is much more to each and every one of them. I adored Talia, her strength and tenacity. I also love the whole idea of the royals, the princes Mason, Finn, Elijah, and Cole. The popular boys who rule Oak Park Prep and the kings of bullying. Heck there is no shortage of bullies in that school. I was cursing them out in my head, I may have verbalized a few out loud too. I loved this twisted story and how every thing played out, all the drama, the angst, the hot romance and the mind blowing twist at the end. I can’t wait to see what comes next, I am team Talia all the way! Callie Rose, thank you for this great story and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Kasi Hollowell is a wonderful narrator and voice performer. She brings these characters to life, gives each their own distinct voice and personality and attitude. She does a great job covering both male and female roles, making it easy to follow the story and who is who. She is great with projecting the emotions of the characters and the drama of the story into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧

I NEED BOOK TWO

I got this on audible, and the narrator I thought did a wonderful job. I really hope all three books will be available on audible. I love reading but very seldom get the chance and audio books help keep me sated.

The bully romance you’ve been looking for!

This bully series quickly became one of my favorites of 2019. Having binge read the books in one weekend, I’m now revisiting via audio. The narrator does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life, with solid pacing and breadth of voices for each character.

This series deserves all the love and attention that "other" bully series named after a fashion brand received, you're only going to read on, READ THIS ONE!

Filled with hate, revenge, betrayal, love, scandal and mystery wrapped up in a beautifully told story that keep you up late – plan accordingly.

As to be expected with a bully romance, steamy moments leave you satisfied yet wanting more more more. The Truth or Dare scene cannot be beat (have you heard me mention that before?) – I cannot say that enough! <insert all the flame emojis>

Once you've finished binge reading this, do yourself a favor and read the rest of her work!
