The head cheerleader hooking up with the star quarterback? Totally normal.
But accidentally bedding and giving her v-card to his brother, the school’s newest, hottest professor?
Yeah, not so normal, and all sorts of scandalous.
Oh, and that’s before they decide to “share”…
Cheerleading captain, social royalty, daughter of a senator, and maybe a bit of bitch? As the reigning queen bee of Winchester Academy, it makes sense that I might hook up with Beckett Truman—the gorgeous, cocky, king-of-the-school star varsity quarterback. I mean that Hollywood script writes itself.
But a party dare gone wrong turns into something hotter than I’ve ever imagined when I accidentally give my v-card to his brother, Porter.
…As in, possessive, dominant, and totally hot Professor Truman, my new freaking math Professor. Eight years my senior, completely off-limits, and utterly irresistible.
I know I should be horrified, or mortified. But it’s a little hard to feel anything but bliss when this Queen finds herself in the arms of not one, but two kings. Because Porter and Beckett want to share…
I slept with the wrong brother, and it just might be the hottest mistake of my life.
Each of the Winchester Academy books are completely standalone stories, with no cliffhangers.
Hot, wild, and insta-love galore, with TWO utterly obsessed alpha heroes and an untouched, very, very off-limits heroine. If you love over-the-top, slightly unrealistic, and wildly dirty stories, this one’s for you!
This mfm romance is all about her – no m/m. As with all my books, this steamy novella is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

Book #2 of the Winchester Academy series, that can be read as a standalone.
The school’s Queen is about to come face-to-face with the King. Let the games begin.
Addictiveness: 4/5 It was a fun sexy ride! It was fast-paced with lot of steamy good scenes. Easy, fun read! As addictive as chocolate cake!!!
Character: heroes 5/5, heroine 5/5, secondary characters 4/5, growth 3/5, real 3/5 Well constructed characters, that were easy to connect.
Kempton was fun! Really, she was a high school cliché with a dash of “badassness”. It was very easy to love and root for her.
Porter was the mature version of Beckett. Even though he was nine years older than his brother, they were best friends and shared everything. He was a leader. He was hot and dreamy!
Beckett was a very mature teenager, maybe because his brother was so older, he was used to mingle with an older crowd. He was a mouth-watering hunk.
Oh, so many interesting secondary characters, I’m dying to read the principal’s book.
All characters were easy to love, connect and understand!
Cover: art 5/5, title 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. This art has definitely been made to fit this book. It’s perfect!!! It tells a lot of the story. Easy to guess it is a taboo romance book. The ménage is another giveaway. I love the lockers and Kempton’s uniform. Title is catchy and the use of color/font is spot on. I would easily buy this book by its cover, without needing to read the blurb!
Freshness: 5/5 It is unique! It is taboo, is not what is out there. The concept of the book and the series feels original. As fresh as chocolate mint ice cream!
Plot: believable 3/5, conflict 3/5, dialogue 4/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 5/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 3/5, twists 4/5 Hot opening and perfect ending. I mean is a very unbelievable plot, but it is fun. A fast-paced, steamy read that hooked the reader from the beginning. Loved the setting, loved the idea of a twist right at the beginning. Highest level of enjoyment!
This is a erotic tale with a good fun concept. It is short and straight-to-the-point. I loved that in this book we learned a bit more from the characters making in easier to fall completely in love with them. Who could choose among this two brothers, when they could have both?
Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 5/5 This is insta-love. It is fast and wild. The heroine had amazing chemistry with both heroes and every time they were together they combusted. So many amazing scenes, but that beginning was WOW!!!! Really, it was crazy and intense!!!
Writing Style: 4.5/5 In my opinion this series is Ms. Faye‘s best work yet. She has always written crazy sexy stories, but the world built for this series is amazing and these characters have layers. Even though this is an erotic read, the plot is more than steamy scenes.
Plot: Is a hard to believe plot, but it was never promised by the author, so it doesn’t bother me at all. I love a fun read that is pure entertainment!!!
This is a very hot book, filled with steamy scenes, but there is heart and soul at the bottom of it all.
Can’t wait for the rest!
32/35 STARS – 4.5 STARS (between 31.5 stars and 33 stars)
Addictiveness: 4 Character: 4 Cover: 5 Freshness: 5 Plot: 4.5 Romance: 5 Writing Style: 4.5
Would I recommend? Sure. If you like a fun, hot , fast read, this is great!
Would I re-read this book/series? I’m certain I will re-read both!
Would I read more from the author? Really looking forward to read this series.
