Review: The Peer and the Puppet by B.B. Reid




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 romance can be read as a standalone, however, the series is one story. The plot introduced in The Peer and the Puppet will continue in the following novels. Content suitable for 18+.

ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

This story was so entertaining. It was basically a one sitting read for me. Once the drama started, I just could. not. put it down. I just don’t know what I was doing in high school but these kids get into so much trouble. They have money and negligent parents and get into so much trouble. But it’s soooo good. I love a strong lady lead and Four is definitely that.

4 stars



So I had been stalking B.B. in anticipation of this release. When I saw her open sign ups for this ARC, I couldn’t fill out the form fast enough. We were honored to receive an ARC. I’ll be honest, I felt like I’ve read this story before. But B.B.’s spin on it was refreshing. It was angsty and suspenseful. I also read this in one sitting. B.B.’s writing had me chasing the words on these pages. I can not get enough of the man child trope. Ever was ALL man child. I was extremely satisfied that he turned 18 early in the book so I could lust with minimal guilt. Ever and Four were formidable enemies and I enjoyed their banter. I was so curious to see how their course would change. The supporting characters introduced so much drama and interesting story ARCs that I’m living to uncover. This was a great read and I am already stalking B.B. for news for the next one.
