Mistaken Prejudice by Tal Lewin

"Wow, what an awesome introduction – both to a new series and to a new author!" Zakiyya on Mistaken Prejudice.

From the blurb:

Some will say we’re trash, and others will call us criminals, but what we are is a family.

All connected by a shared past and a promised future.

Four bad boys in a rich kids’ high school.

It sounds like the beginning of a bad joke. Only it isn’t.

It’s our senior year At Beverly Bay High, the school for the rich and privileged kids of the even richer and more privileged parents.

Without drawing unnecessary attention, I planned for us to get through this year with no trouble.

But then I met him. And I fell in love.

And our love drew fire from all sides involved.

Prejudices? We were used to being on the receiving end, overlooked, and dismissed our whole lives.

My mistake was to think I was above it.

Our story is not about love but all that it touches. One relationship is built while others collapse. And our love is only the beginning of the story.

***Mistaken Prejudice is the first in a series of 5 interconnected books (not standalones). The story becomes darker and darker throughout the rest of the series. So if you like Rich kids, Bad boys, High School settings, Found family that goes through troubles, Lots of lies, Instant chemistry, Accents, and first times… You might enjoy it.

***Not suitable for anyone under 18 years of age
***Triggers are listed inside the book ( they contain spoilers )

Zakiyya's Review:

A beautiful yet heart-breaking story that needs to be at the top of your reading list and deserves to be read by many.

Interesting characters that were easy to follow and get totally lost in.

This story captivated me from the very beginning and I couldn’t put it down until the last page was turned. 

An intriguing take on beautiful broken boys, this story is filled with a whole host of memorable characters – some you will love and some you will hate... 🙈

Miles and Andrei’s story came through clearly and smartly – and I really enjoyed their journey together.

I totally loved Miles’ parents – especially Elliot... 🥰

Everything these kids went through felt real and authentic no matter how heart-breaking it was.

I mean, these were 18 and 19 year olds so I definitely didn't expect them to navigate through life and relationships the way a mature, experienced adult would cos that to me, would have been unrealistic and quite frankly, boring.

So I have to say well done to the author for that. 

Highly recommended read... but please do check out the trigger warnings. 

And to think, this was a debut!

I cannot wait to see what Tal comes up with next in Jessie, Levi and Jordan’s story!
