She hasn’t smiled in almost sixteen months; not since the night her life changed forever, and despite her guilt…her loyalty, Ana can’t deny that Jackson is breathing life back into her. With Jackson by her side, Ana wants to believe she can heal and move on. But she isn’t the only one living a lie, and the small private Academy has secrets of its own. All is not what it seems, and Ana is about to find herself in a tangled web of lies; fighting for survival, again.
Loyalties will be tested, lies will be told. Welcome to Chastity Falls.
**** My Review ****
If you are looking for a story that will delight you with its unique plot and that will draw you into its world from the very beginning, then you should definitely not miss this book. But be prepared to commit to some time, as this is only the first part of a wonderful series.
Seeking her place in this world, fleeing as far away from home as possible, Savannah Parry tries to start a new life in Chasity Falls. New school, new friends … maybe a new life she wants so much. Away from everything, away from her past that haunts her day and night. But even the best plans do not go smoothly. When she draws the attention of the handsome Jackson, when the past begins to mingle with the present when secrets become the main driver of events, here begins the real plot, along with a spark that awakens between them. But is that enough? Can their relationship prosper in the spotlight or will the Donahues take away their shot at happiness?
This author amazes me with her ability to convey feelings and sensations in such a way that no matter how much you resist, it pulls you into the world she has created. And it forces you to turn the pages eagerly, trying to find out what happens next. The main characters are well presented, and the dialogues between them are perfectly balanced, which fully contributes to the completeness of the whole book. Every single character is so complete and you will even fall in love with the secondary characters, especially Elena. Savannah, a girl who amazes us with her strength and determination. Seemingly an ordinary student, and yet a tormented soul whose story wakens a variety of emotions in the reader. The mysterious Jackson is simply the perfect couple for her. And a perfect douchebeg at times. One of those characters that you want to hug and punch at the same time. And the two together are absolute perfection, two souls that complement and heal their wounds.
With a perfect balance of mystery and romance, this book will delight you with its freshness and descriptive writing style. Perfect choice for all those who enjoy a romance that is well seasoned with tension and angst.
