Wealth and power make them untouchable.
The monarchs of Trinity Academy.
With a sharp, intelligent look, he reeks of arrogance wrapped in an icy layer of indifference.
A life of luxury has left him with the notion that everything is attainable.
Power. Wealth. Status.
He’s a god and I a mere mortal.
He’s Jupiter, and I am Mercury.
There’s so much power in this man.
He has the kind of influence most people can’t even begin to imagine.
And me… I’m an eighteen-year-old girl who managed to make him lose control.
I’m the girl who showed him there’s a kaleidoscope of colors outside the high walls of his black and white world.
This is Book 1 in The Trinity Academy Series.
All 3 books are interconnected, and some plots are carried over to the next 2 books in this series.

I found another new to me author that I need to read other books from after reading the first book to the Trinity Academy series, Falcon. Falcon is the first book to three books of the series, and this one is all about the sexy male protagonist Falcon. He’s due to take over his family’s business if he wants it, but he has only so many shares with it, and his older brother wants those shares. He’s working on his degree and has his mind made up on what he wants to do after college, and it’s not run the family business. He’s also being told that he needs to marry Serena by his mother who has arranged him to marry her. He doesn’t want anything to do with that unstable girl.
His world is about to rock when he meets his father’s assistant’s daughter, who is attending Trinity Academy thanks to Falcon’s Dad. Layla wants to go to classes and get her degree, so she can finally travel with her father around the world. She wants to keep out of the limelight of the three boys that she has been told about from her mother. Unfortunately, the minute Grayson sets eyes on Layla inappropriately is when Falcon, Lake, and Mason step in to help her. Falcon knows that Layla is not one of them and enlists her to be his new assistant. Layla doesn’t want to be his assistant, so she will do anything to get out of it, even give him coffee with salt in it.
The first book to the Trinity Academy is all about Falcone, who is one of three young men that are powerful, rich, and sexy. Falcon and his friends have pulled at the Academy due to their families. Falcon and his friends are not to be messed with, and I loved how Michelle Heard made me fall in love with them. This book is all about a couple that would’ve never hooked up with if it wasn’t for the Trinity Academy. They come from two different social statuses, but they are perfect together. Layla knows how to handle Falcon and Falcon is confused by the girl at first in the book. It takes a tough situation to bring them together.
Forewarning, there is a problematic scene in this book that involves violence and an almost rape scene. If you are bothered by any violence, then you may be bothered by that scene. I pulled through it because a particular character fought back. Let’s not forget the steam factor in this book too, which was a steamy one.
I enjoyed Falcon and Layla’s book, and now I’m counting down to Mason’s book next because he’s one that will be difficult to change, but the girl that will win him over is determined to know he won’t break her although he is one scary character.
