Book Review: The Peer and the Puppet




Borrow the bike. Win the race. Collect the cash. It should’ve been an easy job. Ran out of town with a broken leg and a lawsuit, my mother’s latest flame swoops in like a knight in gilded armor. Blackwood Keep is a place I don’t belong, and I’m not the only one who knows. To the boy across the hall, my savior’s only son, I’m a stray looking for a bone.

He’s lord of the manor.
King of the academy.
And number one on my shit list.


I have no intentions of becoming a happy family with the social climber and her wild daughter. A bottle of Jameson and a cracked skull gets my problem shipped to reform school, but I didn’t bank on her returning.

Four’s out to get even, and she almost had the perfect plan: expose the privileged kid moonlighting as a gangbanger. She’s smart, but she’ll have to be smarter. Sending her away won’t be good enough this time. I’m going to have to tame the little troublemaker. To the girl across the hall, the one without a name, I’m nothing without my silver spoon.

She’s lady of the trailer park.
Queen of the swamps.
And my new favorite pastime.

The Peer and the Puppet is an interconnected standalone and book one of a complete series. The plot introduced continues in the following novels. Content suitable for 18+.

The Peer and the Puppet by BB Reid: This was one of the first bully romance books that I read. I remember reading it and just wanting more! This book was the start of my love for bully/step brother romance books. While the Peer, Ever, isn’t exactly Four’s stepbrother, they do end up living together. Those first few chapters were just crazy! I love that Four takes no shit and pushes back at every turn. She can ride a bike, make casual clothes look sexy, and bring back life into Ever. She loves to push his buttons by never doing what he wants and of course, that just gets him all hot for her. This book has soo many steamy scenes! This book has the twists, drama, steam, it has everything! Perfect book to start your bully romance start. I wanted to strangle Four more than once myself for always going back to Ever, but how can she not, their names combined make FOUREVER! Hour cute is that! I love that BB Reid has continued the story in more standalones with flashes of past characters and can’t wait to see how their stories turn out!
