What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

A bully romance like no other…

Caelum: an Academy built to protect people like Eve.
Who they can’t protect her from?
Its own student body.

The threat of death isn’t new to Eve, but when she’s given the chance to escape her past, she prays her future will be brighter.

How wrong she is.

Raised in a cult, Eve has no understanding of the modern world. Targeted as a freak, a Pack of boys take her under their wing but one among them recognizes Eve for what she is.


And a threat.

At Caelum, threats need eliminating…

Eve survived her past, but what of her future?

Find out if she makes it out alive in book ONE of the complete Caelum Academy trilogy.

A Why Choose Romance. 

Thoughts on Seven Wishes


First….. ALL THREE BOOKS OUT AT ONCE??? That’s fantastic, startling and perfect, since this book is so great I can’t wait to dive into book 2!

Second… bully? Not so much. Cruel is a bully book, this is far from it, thankfully. I’m not too keen on them, but I couldn’t resist the fall of a completed series. Glad I listened. This is great! A fresh take on the paranormal theme with enticing world building and unique characters.

Favorite Lines:

Hello judgment, my old friend, (11%)
…but they thought I was a twenty-four-carat jerk. When, at most, I was fourteen-carat. (28%)
Anything was better than the elliptical, which had to have been made by Satan. (44%)


  • Well written.
  • Love Eve!
  • Academy is very unique
  • Outstanding narrative about paranormals.
  • Metaplot is forming.


  • Little hard to figure out who is who till the characters are more defined.

5 out of 5 Stars

Fantastic start to an intriguing and unique PNR series. This book is listed as a ‘Bully Novel’… but I don’t just see it. Honestly. Don’t be scared, this one is easy to swallow and creates a beautiful story. Free on KU.
