Summary

Sin isn’t supposed to feel this good.

I never wanted to come here.

The scholarship to Hawthorne University is my ticket to a better life, but I don’t fit in with these rich, privileged students.

I’m the daughter of a drug addict. A girl with a half-remembered past. A foster kid who’s seen too much of the wrong side of humanity. My tattoos are my battle scars, and my heart beats for no one.

Until I meet them.

Gray, Declan, and Elias.

The Sinners.

They run this school, and one day, they’ll run this whole city. They snap their fingers, and the world falls at their feet. They breathe a word, and that word becomes law.

I’ve been numb my whole life, but when they touch me, sparks dance across my skin. For the first time in years, I feel.

I feel so much.

Confusion. Desire. Anger. Need.

Too bad there’s only one thing the Sinners feel for me.

Hate.

Note: This is the first book in the Sinners of Hawthorne University series, a new adult reverse-harem bully romance. It contains violence, dark subject matter, and steamy sex.

So many feelings...

4 Stars Overall Rating ★★★★ Plot ★★★★ Humor ★★★ Characters & Character Development ★★★★ Narration ★★★★★ Story: Sophie, Grey, Declan, Elias ... Max First I gotta say, I'm not huge on bully romance. But I was hooked from the beginning on this series. I love Sophie's perseverance. I love that she doesn't back down. I had all sorts of feelings by the end and I had to go on to read the next book even though I listened to this one. Narration: Amber Lee Connors... Loved the narration. Can't wait to hear some more from this narrator.

WOW

OMG, I LOVED this book. I don't normally listen to cliffhangers before all of the books are available because waiting for what happens next drives me CRAZY but I was looking for something new to listen to. It was TOTALLY worth the credit and I can't wait for the next book to be available.

Steamy

I love it when you start a book and don’t have to wait long for the steam. The story is solid. The only thing that is a little confusing is why the hostility. I’m sure we will find out more

Heartbreaking. Dark.

Sophie's story is heartbreaking and dark. I hate what happened to her foster brother, the heartache and pain I felt for her just listening. And the heartache and pain I felt for her while listening during her second day at the University during the assembly. But she's strong and driven. She's a badass woman who even though she's broken, she doesn't give up.

Good Story

This book started slow, and I nearly put it down, but something told me to keep reading. I told myself I'd give it a few more chapters. The story finally starts to draw my interest and then I was hooked. Once the bs slowed down and you got more into the characters I found myself drawn to Gray. Not so much the other two, you could almost do away with them and make this a regular one on one love interest and be just as good. He overpowers the other two with his presence.

couldn't get past 20 minutes.

I didn't interest me at all. I stopped listening at 20 min mark. literally nothing but unrealistic sex scene that took up the entire beginning

Cliff Hanger earns the single star

I was enjoying this book then it dropped me off a cliff.......made me angry and the story continues in a book not yet on audible but as a kindle unlimited.....I won't be reading or listening to the rest. Ms. Ashwood is on my do not ever read list for the unexpected cliff surprise. My three stars is reflective of the narrators good work and story up to the cliff. The separate books should be made one!

Sexy-Kick-Ass Story.

I loved this book, it was full of emotions, and the MC kicked-ass with easy, I got to listen to it on audible, and I made it so much better, you could feel her pain and sassiness, you felt her loss after losing her foster brother, and how she cooped. She started a new college and you got to see her fight back to bullies and show she wasn't weak, I enjoyed a girl who could fight back instead of crying in a corner. I loved this book.

Hot

The ending is crazy and I need the next one now! Some think female lead is weak but she is not.
