Amazing book! Really. The author sent me a copy which I absolutely adore her for. Wonderful love story, I couldn't put it down. This wasn't just straight romance, it was about love and learning how to love, to be loved, how to get through heartbreak. Also how to see past labels and see someone for who they really are. Cindy is amazing is capturing emotions. I felt very connected with Jen and how she felt. Trevor too- even though it wasn't from his perspective. Kind of predictable- but not in a bad way. I was dreading it because I knew it would happen. I didn't like Jen's friends, and I don't think I was supposed to. Jane was my favorite. She had a fairly small role, but she was an amazing and sweet character I liked her stubborness! I also really liked Todd. He was adorable and I grew to love him. Reading about both Jen and Trevor was a great reminder that people aren't always what they seem. I love this book and I'll be re-reading it and recommending it to my friends. Cindy C. Bennett is an amazing author and so kind. Thank you!

I have never read Pride and Prejudice- and I guess this is a re-telling of it. I loved this book so much. Very fun to read. I felt very connected with Lizzie, my favorite part about this novel is probably how music was incorporated. The scene at Carnegie Hall was so much fun to read and that little twist was one I didn't see coming. I cried at that part actually because I felt like her, mostly jealous though because I'd love to do that. The story really hooked me in and by the end, I was crying and laughing. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. It reminded me of another series- Kiss me kill me. But I think that's just because it had to do with a boarding school and such. Otherwise- they aren't really at all alike. I found a new favourite author, and I'd love to read some more of her writing.
Alex lives-and loves-recklessly, until a single decision leads to a heartbreaking revelation. As a mysterious threat closes in and she confronts a Council that wants to see her in servitude, Alex face a choice between love that is fated... and love that is forbidden. - Amazon
I love this series so much. I really do, it's one of my absolute favourites now. AMAAAAAZZZINNNNGGG series! I did not like however- the back and fourth between Alex and Aiden. Meh! TEASE TEASE TEASE. SAD. Very funny, Alex never fails to amuse me, I love this character so much!. I'm so happy that this story is continuing. It just keeps getting better. I highly reccommend this book- it's hard to put down. Or- well it was for me. Great author, what more can I say?
