They rule my new town, my school, and with more money than God, there’s very little out of their reach.
Four gorgeous, perfect, scary boys. There used to be five, but one of them died, leaving a fifth position that I now fill.
I didn’t ask for this. I didn’t want to be part of this billionaire-boys-club. But no one cares about what I want.
Sebastian Beckett is the worst of them. Their leader. He draws me in, and strips me of every defense I have. He calls me Butterfly, but it’s not a pet name, it’s a threat. Beck wants nothing more than to break my wings, pin me to a board and watch me writhe.
He wants to see me broken. Body, heart and soul.
And what these elite want, they get.
Only they’ve never met Riley Jameson.
Let the battle begin.
Wow, not often does something leave me speechless with a book hangover. I did keep expecting this to turn into something, and it didn’t, and I have had a tough time finding the tropes in this series. Trust, family, and danger are constant themes, as well as twisted trials and tribulations. This series just became my favorite read this year; it is perfect.
The first book starts tragic and is more young adults beginning with an academy and getting more twisted as you progress in the story. The characters are teenagers and college students, but the steamy sections and drama are more suited for a more mature age. The book is centered around five teenagers who are heirs to massive fortunes, but it gets twisted, has dark themes, and is filled with enigma heroes and a sassy heroine. Riley is thrust into a complicated world; she is damaged, lost, and troubled. This book is as thrilling as it is confusing and unpredictable, but one heck of a read. This series is seriously addicting; I don’t know why I waited so long to read this.
The cliffhanger left me gasping in shock and led into book two, which is more bully romance but way darker and has a trigger warning. By this point, the drama was relentless, and I couldn’t put this down; I was along for the ride. The author does a great job of putting you in the first person perspective connecting you with Riley and how she is feeling and what she is experiencing. Book two ends and leads straight into Book Three. I love the protective Alpha Males with Sebastian, Jasper, Evan, and Dylan, as well as the bad boy vibes.
This third book is spellbinding; the plot does get a little sidetracked. It’s a complicated and much more new adult fiction, but I am already so hooked on the characters I couldn’t put it down if I tried. The dark themes persist as well as the action and drama. I love the steamy scenes and edge-of-your-seat page-turning plot line in this entire series. I’m completely hooked on the drama that is The Hiers. Book three ends perfectly, and that bonus epilogue fills me with joy.
I love the bonus epilogue. Oh, I will have to read that. Omg, could we get more of some of these characters in the future?
Overall this was a fantastic read. The story hooks you profoundly with tragedy, emotions, and thrilling sequences. I could read this again and again. They must be read in order, and Dark Legacy The Compete Series makes the most sense. Don’t miss out on this 5-star read.
