Treacherous by Alex Grayson & Melissa Toppen: Release Blitz + Review

Title: Treacherous
Genre: High School Bully Romance
Publish Date: December 10, 2019

Senior year was not going how I planned.
It was supposed to be an amazing year- the perfect year.
And it started out that way… until my mom remarried and I found myself in a new town, at a new school, and living with quite possibly the most conniving person I had ever met.
But my horrible stepbrother wasn’t even the worst part.
It was his best friend.

Zayden Michaels.

Gorgeous. Unpredictable. Treacherous.
The kind of guy who sends most sane people running in the opposite direction.
He hated me from the first moment he saw me.
He made it his mission to make sure I knew it too.
I became the target—the bullied.
Until suddenly I wasn’t anymore.

But in a world of rumors, games and deceit, you never really know who you can trust.
Sometimes the best deceptions are the ones you never see coming.

A novel on high school bully romance? Yes please, sign me up! Even better yet .. a collaboration between Alex Grayson and Melissa Toppen? Aso-freakin-lutely!

Treacherous begins with a girl (Rylee) and an evil step-brother (Oliver) who is out to get her and make her life miserable. Mix in Oliver’s friends and cronies and you have a life filled with disaster and heartache. When things get too out of hand, his best friend and comrade, Zayden, has to make a decision of what’s right by protecting Rylee or sticking by his best friend since childhood. Either way, there is a betrayal to one or the other. Zayden knows what he should do, but can he make the right decision? Where will his heart lead him and can the one he betrays forgive him?

This is one of the best high school bully romances that I have read to date. I can’t tell where Alex’s writing stops and Melissa’s begins. The flow is flawless and unpredictable. I can only hope that this duo creates another masterpiece soon.

Alex Grayson is the bestselling author of heart pounding, emotionally gripping contemporary romance including the Jaded Series, the Consumed Series, and two standalone novels. Her passion for books was reignited by a gift from her sister-in-law. After spending several years as a devoted reader and blogger, Alex decided to write and independently publish her first novel in 2014 (an endeavor that took a little longer than expected). The rest, as they say, is history.

Originally a southern girl, Alex now lives in Ohio with her husband, two children, two cats and dog. She loves the color blue, homemade lasagna, casually browsing real estate, and interacting with her readers. Visit her website,, or find her on social media!
