The Golden Boys (Kings of Cypress Prep Book 1) by Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

This is the first book in the King’s of Cypress Prep series.

West Golden—so easy to hate, yet so hard to resist.

Don’t let that pretty face of his fool you. He isn’t the boy next door, or the kind you trust with your heart. He’s the devil in designer jeans, with all the charm of a bona fide psycho.

Trust me.

He swears I did something to cross him before I even stepped foot inside Cypress Prep, but it’s a lie. No one knows better than me that I’m all out of chances. One more misstep and I can kiss my future goodbye, which means I can’t possibly be guilty of whatever he thinks I’ve done.

West marks me with a target anyway, and as this town’s football star, no one dares to go against him. His money, status, and the loyalty of his equally entitled brothers makes him seem untouchable. Only, I know better than that.

This false god isn’t infallible like he wants the world to believe. Whenever I stare into those devilish green eyes, I see it plain as day. The chink in his armor. His one and only weakness.


The King of Cypress Prep has finally met his match, and taking him down just became an inside job.

I enjoyed reading this book. The characters are great, the storyline is great and the plot developed well.

Blue is such a strong character. She has a lot to deal with at home, and then coming to this new school and dealing with everyone there just adds to her problems. She’s a fighter and gerts through everything thrown at her.

West is also a great character. I loved his nicer side, and even a bit of his dickish side, but at the end he was just pure savage. I loved the development between him and Blue. The tension between them is hot, and it was nice to see those walls drop at times, but the end. Savage. Just Savage.

Vin is an arsehole. I’m really intrigued to find out what went on between him and Blue, but damn West for believing what he was told. He just needed to ask Blue about it, but of course, he didn’t.

All of the other characters were great additions, except for Parker. She’s a bitch. Pandora was a great addition.

The storyline was great. There’s that underlying mystery surrounding the photos circumstances, and I’m really looking forward to finding out more about that.

I’m looking forward to the next book and I really hope Blue comes back fighting hard. West deserves some payback for that stunt at the end.

Overall, this was a great book and I’d definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*
