Delinquent by Bea Paige


Academy of Misfits


I’m the kid your parents warned you about… 


Eighteen months in prison or doing time at Oceanside Academy.
Reform school has met its match in me, even if it is full of young offenders. Thieves, graffiti writers, drug runners and other petty criminals reside within the walls, and I’m just like them.
But what they didn’t tell me was that I’d be one of only a handful of girls in a hoard full of boys. It’ll take more than just street smarts to keep my wits about me.
Everyone here has a chip on their shoulders, and I’m no different. Mine’s one of the biggest, that’s why they call me Asia because I have one as large as a continent.
Rules or not, these bad boys are about to discover I’ve earned my label for reason…
I’m the biggest misfit of them all.

**Delinquent is book one of this new gritty, contemporary reverse harem academy trilogy for 17+ readers and deals with adult themes and some subjects you may find upsetting. Contains foul language and sexual scenes. Ends on a cliffhanger**

I have been eagerly anticipating this book since the characters were teased in Symphony and it more than lived up to my hopes and expectations.
Delinquent is a gritty, dark, academy, bully romance. (Did I throw enough at you there?) Really there are so many tropes that can be covered here as there are quite a few relationships that develop in this book.

You know that mistake you often make? The one where you open a book late at night and think — it’s ok, I’ll only read a chapter or two. And then you get sucked into a world that you just don’t want to leave. Yeah that was me here! I opened it just to start and the next thing I knew the book was over and I was craving the next book. I want to know everything possible about these captivating characters. I NEED to know what happens next.

Oceanside is an Academy of Misfits. (see what I did there? 😉) One last chance instead of prison. A place for kids who most of society has already given up on. These are kids who have lived on the streets, kids who have had to fight to stay alive. So naturally not everyone gets along at all. The kids here are T.O.U.G.H.

But don’t underestimate our heroine, Asia. This is one scrappy, strong woman. She can more than hold her own. I loved that we got to see her tough as nails side and also see the soft interior she hides underneath. Watching her start to make female friends for the first time made me so happy. I can’t wait to see more of Pink and Kate.

And OMG the boys. Can we take a minute to appreciate the HAF boys that come into Asia’s life — Eastern, Sonny, Ford & Camden. No wonder this is #whychoose — each boy has something about him that makes me want to swoop in and give him a great big hug. None of these guys have had an easy life. And I am rooting and rooting for them to make a better life for themselves.

Delinquent is a gritty, raw tale of survival — teens caught up in a cutthroat world finding whatever way they can to make it day to day. This book wrenched my heart wide open. I want to be able to save everyone!

I can’t wait to see where Bea Paige takes this tale!
