Publisher's Summary

Rich boys don't fraternize with the help.
They don't fall in love with the help.
They don't risk everything for the help.

We know what we're up against now. Who we're up against. But if he holds all the cards, the truth hardly matters.

The kings of Linwood want me to run. They want me far away from here, where I'll be safe.

I won't go, though. I refuse to leave my mom behind, and the four boys who've each claimed a piece of my heart won't let me face this threat on my own.

They swear they'll do whatever it takes to end this. To keep me safe.

Since we won't back down, fighting is our only option.

But I've played poker long enough to know that sometimes when you risk everything...

You lose everything.

Author's note: The Risk is a reverse harem high school bully romance, the final book in the Kings of Linwood Academy trilogy. It contains cursing and sexual situations.

Hell Fucking Yess

The Kings of Linwood definitely gets my approval. These books was so f**king good. I loved every minute of the twist and turns. Only thing I wish is that this was college life instead of high school. I wanna know if they stay together. Although It was amazing. I definitely recommend this slow burn RH the first book may seem more like a single couple but just keep going. So f**king good and worth it. These books definitely take a different spin on RH world. Lo & Link are more the alpha couple and everyone else is background but they all somehow grow together in the end. It’s nice. Definitely must

Liked the series overall

What started as a light bully romance turned into a murder mystery. It kept my attention and I wanted to get to the end to find out who the real murderer was. My suspicions ended up being correct but there was a twist I didn't see coming. The group was definitely in way over their head. There is some one on one smexy times as well as one group scene. 🔥🔥🔥

Narration was 4 stars. Surprisingly I liked her male voices more than when she was narrating for the main female character. There was some static/noise at the end of the chapters.

good ending

I loved this series and I loved the story. I didnt care for the narrator in this audio as much. I normally would like her but she seemed whiney to me in some parts. But I really did like her voice it was just some times. I am sad to see this series end. I really loved it! 4 stars

Perfect Hot Ending

Thank you to the author for the wonderful ending. I am so happy right now with how everything has concluded. Although I have no idea how their love circle will end.

The narration was great I love how the narrator gave each character their own voice and kept me coming back for more. I was held in suspense for all of it.

Epic Conclusion

I received a copy of this book from Audiobook Obsession to reiew.

This is the pay off. This is where we get all the answers to all the questions we have had since the beginning of this series. It picks up right where the other book leaves off and not as twisted as the others but equally as good. I can't think of any other way I would have wanted this series to end either. If you love bully and reverse harem books then you do not want to miss this series from Callie Roase. She just might blow you away like she has me.

Unexpected surprise

I went into this series with some hesitation having read some bad bully books in the past. I was pleased with this one. There was a lot of depth to the characters and their particular situations. The complex relationship worked through the writing of this book. That's tough to accomplish so kudos to the author. I'll be reading more of her stuff.

Good ending 🎧🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer 🎧🎧

The story unfolded well. It kept me interested until the very end. The twists made the series worthwhile. It was more of a suspense novel than a romance novel IMO. But I think fans of either genre will like this series. The narration was great again. I would recommend the series.

The Risk

Not what I was expecting, but a great ending to the series. It has been filled with drama, suspense, danger, and a few twists along the way. It was a bit slow to start at the beginning of book 1 but once it really go going i was pulled right in.

Amanda Stribling did an amazing job with this series. Wonderful performance.

Great characters and Great story!!!

I have enjoyed every book I’ve listened to fro Callie Rose! I think this series is my favorite! There is more than just romance here. More than the bully story. There’s a bit of mystery and intrigue as well! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of these three books! I’m just glad I got them all at once so I didn’t have to wait!!

Amanda Stribling was wonderful with these characters and their angst! Her voice added to my enjoyment of this series!?

What an ending to an amazing series

The Kings will do anything to protect Harlow at this point. Harlow is determined to save her mother and the Kings are running right beside her. Their devotion is stronger than any highschool romance I have ever known. These kids are wiser beyond their years, but the corruption goes so deep, they may not be able to save Harlow's mom in time. THis is a perfect finale to the drama that has surrounded Harlow. The suspense is een more intense than the other two books. I was once again hooked and could not stop listening until the end. I devoured this series in two days. I am sad it is over, but I loved the ending. It was just getting there that had me on the edge of my seat.

Amanda Stirling is stellar in this narration. There are so many moving pieces and Amanda narrates each one flawlessly. Amanda created a movie in my mind. Her narration added to the experience of this series. I loved that it was a consistent narrator. I cannot wait to hear more from Amanda Stirling.

Worth the Risk

I've discovered the killer, slept with all the boys, what's next? Risking our lives to free my mom. Discovering the killer was the easy part, trying to find the information to feel my mom might cost everyone their lives. The best one in the series and how deep the boys go for Harlow is crazy.

Beautiful Ending!

Harlow has been beside herself with grief. Somebody has murdered a girl she didn't get along with at her school and framed her mother. While trying to find the truth, she stumbles upon the real killer, putting herself and her four boys in danger. She must decide whether to continue trying to free her mother or let it go and keep her and those she loves alive. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the entire trilogy. I didn't love it at first, but I stuck with it and wound up falling in love about halfway through the first book. I'm so glad I stuck with it. It got so much better. I loved how everything came together very neatly in the end. But the author definitely kept me on edge to up to the very end! I really loved how connected I felt to Harlow. She is just this strong-willed and passionate young lady. She knew what she wanted, but she also cared about what others wanted as well. She tried to stay strong, but she was able to admit her weaknesses. Her four boys were pretty amazing too. Once one got through their exterior walls. I'm sad that I'm done with the trilogy and won't' read about these again. I'd of loved to see more with her mom and her best friend. I was very impressed with Amanda Stribling. Not only in this book but the entire trilogy. It was like she pulled the emotions from the characters out and claimed them as her own. Especially where Harlow was concerned. I loved it. It's a quality that I love seeing with narrators. I love the life that narrators can bring to books. It helps me enjoy reading when I can't actually read. I really did love this book. I loved the entire trilogy. I recommend reading the entire trilogy in order. It is definitely not one that can be read out of order. I also want to warn that it will catch a reader in their feels. There were parts in the book where my heart was beating so hard! I can't even begin to explain it. I was as afraid as Harlow. I'm sure of it!

The Risk

The Risk was a great way to end this captivating series. There were a lot of twists and turns mixed in with all that danger and suspense. I had never heard of Callie Rose before listening to this series but I will certainly be watching out for other books written by her. Amanda Stribling did a wonderful job bringing this story to life.
