AUTHOR: B.B. Reid

Guys the wait for this one was worthwhile!! It quickly went from a 5 star read and escalated to one of my favourite ones for this year..Saying I loved this is an understatement, get ready for one crazy angsty ride!! 

‘THE PEER AND THE PUPPET’ is the first full length, New Adult novel in B.B.Reids ’s ‘When Rivals Play' series. In this we meet Ever McNamara and Four Archer.

Four's dreams have never wavered from wanting to race professionally. In the opening chapter we see what seventeen year old Four normally does, and something that should’ve gone off without a hitch, but that’s not the case, borrow the bike like normal, win the race as per usual, fourteen to be precise. Collect the cash, but not in this case. She's pissed off some very dangerous men. Now she’s been shipped off to Blackwood Keep along with her mother and her new beau Thomas and his son Ever. 

From the get go I was hooked, that very first page the author lured me in, I couldn’t, didn’t want to, and didn’t put it down. ‘The Peer and the Puppet’ was everything I could’ve hoped for and more. 

To say the first time Ever and Four meet didn't go off without a hitch is an understatement, she kicks him in the balls and from that point onwards it's game on, neither likes the other, neither hold back their dislike for each other which makes for an interesting ride. Four isn't your typical female, she's made of tougher things, and Never's met his match when it comes to her, she doesn't back down, so these two are at loggerheads continuously. Neither back down.

'The Peer and The Puppet' was utter perfection! Un-put-downable, unpredictable, unique, unquestionably good, unbelievably became one of my favourites quickly.

Mega angst, drama galore, affinity feels, anyone like myself who reads this I swear you will love this book to the moon and back. There is nothing I would change about this book, seconds, minutes, hours ceased to exist, once you start this you’ll never want it to end. My review, my words, does not give this book the justice it deserves.

If you’ve read the paper princess or tijan’s fallen crest high series then I swear you will love this book wholeheartedly as this runs in similar lines as those, but definitely stands out on a class of its own. 

Two thumbs up, highly recommend, definitely one click come release day..
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.  

THE PEER

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 a standalone romance, however, the series is one story. The plot introduced in Four and Ever’s story will continue in the following novels. No cliffhangers.

B.B., also known as Bebe, found her passion for romance when she read her first romance novel by Susan Johnson at a young age and she would sneak into her mother's closet for books and even sometimes the attic.
