    Puppet is book one in the Ridgeview Prep Series. There's a prequel, Prick, that can be read first but it doesn't have to be read to enjoy this one. Charlotte and Xander have know each other for a while. Charlotte was sent away to school for a year an now she's back. I really didn't understand why Xander and Charlotte went from loving each other to really angry at each other when they were separated by things beyond their control. They may try to be mad at each other but deep down they still like Puppet is book one in the Ridgeview Prep Series.

Charlotte is a good character too. She tries to be strong but really everyone is making decisions for her and it's hard for her. The ending is a cliffhanger but I was already hooked and can't wait to read more.

    WHY Londyn WHY!!!! How soon until I get my hands on Princess! Holy Hell woman you know how to leave me hanging. In this book nothing really is as it seems. I am really at a loss as to what to say in this review. What I will do is sit here and tell you how incredibly fabulous this storyline is. There is so much happening at once that will leave your head spinning. Believe this is not a bad thing it just means that this book is fast paced and a definite page turner.

There is so much happening at once that will leave your head spinning. Believe this is not a bad thing it just means that this book is fast paced and a definite page turner. So much has changed since Charlotte left, and yet some things have stayed the same. As you can guess Xander and Charlotte have their own issues to work through on top of the issues they have with each other. I am really rooting for them even if outside forces are trying to make it damn near impossible. I would love to sit here and tell you everything that is awesome about this book, but if I do that I am afraid I will spoil it for you. I'm telling you if you have read Prick that is just a teaser at what happens in Puppet. Dark, gritty, & angsty doesn't even fully describe this work of art.....

    This is the first book in the Ridgview Prep series, and the continuation of Xander, and Charlotte's story, who we first meet in, Prick, the prequel to Puppet. Xander, and Charlotte were once friends, but when Charlotte left Xander, that changed, now enemies, Charlotte has returned, and Xander doesn't have plans for a warm welcome.

    Watch out for this amazing new author! Read the prequel first... Intoxicating story with a lot of suspense and action! Angsty relationship between Xander and Charlotte that breaks the heart because they love and need each other but listen to everyone around them keeping them apart. I cannot wait until the next book comes out to see where Londyn Quinn takes this couple! A really good read that bully romance readers will enjoy.

    Hmm... I have to admit, it took me over a week to finish this book. I stopped and started numerous times. It was okaaaaayyyyyy... It wasn't as dark as what I was expecting and I am not sure where the bullying is.. The relationship between Xander and Charlotte is immature and all over the place. The storyline was pretty average but it ended with an interesting cliffhanger. I have to be honest and say that the ending was probably the most riveting part so I am hoping that book 2 is better.

    Couldn’t finish I think this book had real potential however I don’t think that it was able to achieve it. Take this review with a grain of salt since I only got 52% of the way through before finally giving up. The storyline it didn’t really hold my interest and the repetitiveness throughout the first 52% of the book was extremely irritating. Neither of the main characters were very likable I found the male character Xander most annoying.

But really the reason why I had to give up on the book was the continuing of inner monologue that repeated over and over again how lonely how I loved it was like the story wasn’t moving forward it was just both characters thinking about the same event that happened but never giving us any details about that event. Super annoying we get Charlotte your parents don’t care you’ve told us 709x we get it Xander you have no control you’ve told us 709x. I gave three stars because it’s awesome that the writer was able to write a book, so effort

And when it came to fire nothing was hotter than Xander and Charlotte’s chemistry. These two charged every page and made it sizzle with their love-hate relationship. Add to that a fast-paced storyline, plot twists, elements of suspense, and I was turning pages at the speed of light! Just get ready for a major cliffhanger that will leave you salivating for the next book! 5 stars!!

    I am usually not a bully romance reader, however Londyn Quinn gives us a unique tale that has some interesting twists that keep you on your toes. There is the epic angst of teenage drama thrown in with whatever is going on with the families on top of that. I mean, I remember not being that bad but this is almost an accurate take on teens this day and age, which I can get away with because I have a 15 year old daughter and the drama is never ending.

I loved that suspense was twisted into it which leaves you wondering and guessing what will be coming. Then the ending?? Can I please have the next book? Stat?????

    On The Fence I’m on the fence on this book. It’s not that it was slow burning, that’s doesn’t bother me what so ever. It had far too much inner monologue for my personal taste. It did redeem its self around 80% though and for that I will be reading the next book. I really want to see if they can make this relationship ship work with the world against them.

    Best one of the series so far From the beginning to end I was in this book. I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I do love the love and hate relationship Xander and Charlotte have and I can't wait to figure out what Daddy Hawthrone is up to. Finally that cliff hanger!! Can't wait!!

    3.5 stars I wasn't sure of this at the beginning but stuck to it as it felt a little whiney, but I'm glad I stuck it out as it felt like the story fell into place by the end. Puppet is a story on growth, hard decisions and rebellion against everything you know. I'm.looking forward to seeing how Xavier and Charlotte's story grows and I have a few inkling as to what's happening and whya

    A thrilling page turner with an ending that leaves you wanting more. Xander and Charlotte's story is a messy web of love and hate, that sucks you in and doesn't let go. From the first to the last page it's a rollercoaster of emotions and I can't wait to see how it all plays out!!

    WOW what a amazing roller coaster of a ride this book was... This is book 1 (technically Prick the novella needs to be read prior) - This book picks up where the novella ends.. Xander and Charlotte's story is full of love and hate.. push and pull.. and then that ending leaves you thinking WTF!! Amazing job!! I cant wait for the next book.. I need it NOW.. LOL

    After reading Prick I was so looking forward to reading Puppet. Oh my dayz I absolutely loved this story. These characters....gah. They are amazing and I felt as if they were driving me mad. That ending had me shouting at my kindle and I really hope we don’t have to wait too long for more.
