Publisher's Summary

The Patricians series book 1 - Bittersweet Legacy - Contemporary High School Bully Romance

You don’t realize when your life is about to change forever, how a simple text can tear your world apart.

Esme Danvers doesn’t have an easy life but at least she is loved by her widower father...or at least that’s who she thought he was for 17 years. Enter William Forbes, top 10 of America’s one percent and her actual father - or rather the father of Esmeralda Forbes, the girl she was born to be, the heir to a legacy she’d never known or wanted.

Esme’s thrown into a world of glamour and money, smoke and mirrors, hate, pain, and unspoken rancor. A world with a distant, calculating, and uncaring father; Archibald, a brother who hates her; and Caleb, his best friend, who is as wicked and mean as he is beautiful and charismatic.

Caleb, this broken boy whom she can’t seem to hate enough to keep him out of her bloodstream, a boy who doesn’t seem to hate her enough to stay away.

But as the past reveals itself in ways Esme didn’t expect, she finds herself in the middle of a swirl of lies, betrayals, conspiracy, and even murder, with barely anyone to watch her back.

The only thing she really wants is to get back to being Esme Danvers, to find a way out before it’s too late.

Enthralling!!

This was my first R.G. Angel’s book. This was my first R.G. Angel's book, and definitely won't be my last. This is the first book in The Patricians Duet. Wow! This is a captivating High School Bully Romance. Esmeralda (Esme) and Caleb’s story is well written, intriguing, and enthralling. Esme is lovely, strong, and smart. Caleb is dark, secretive, and intriguing. Her bio father is devilishly dark, and ruthless. Esme's brother, Archie, is an interesting character. The characters are well developed and interesting. The world building is intricate, and intriguing. The storyline is filled with secrets, and unpredictable twists and turns. The story ends with a cliffhanger, and I am looking forward to listen to the conclusion of this duet. Stevi Incremona is a new narrator to me. She has a beautiful voice, and she did a great job with the narration. If you like Bully Romance, this one is definitely for you.

I loved this!!

At first I wasn't sure how this book was going to go, but thankfully it went a direction I hadn't expected. There were a couple of wording choices that I didn't care for such as the use of a "detailed" look. But those are minute issues. The amount of times I had a change of heart about different characters is unreal. I am absolutely looking forward to the next book!

dark and intriguing

Esme's Bio dad was pure evil incarnate, and he liked to make others suffer for what he felt were transgressions. The ending was a bit of a surprise , but after knowing Bio dad I can easily believe the worst. I liked seeing Archie and Caleb soften a bit as their hearts started to thaw. Intriguing series I'd like to read more of. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

Fantastic

This was a really great listen. Initially, I was afraid it was going to be too dark for me as the male characters were all so nasty and evil. But Archie and Caleb began to redeem themselves and they grew on me. I cant wait to see what happens next!!
