Author: Carrie Aarons
In a world of wealth and power, the rules of love and war are nothing as they seem.
Nora Randolph never wanted a life of luxury. But when her mother falls in love with the heir to the British throne, their small-town lives are uprooted and every little girl’s fantasy becomes her reality. All too quickly, she learns the dangers of running in circles with the world’s elite, especially when she attracts the attention of Winston Academy’s resident golden boy.
Asher Frederick has known nothing but favor and fortune. The son of London’s most influential family, his future has been written in stone since infancy. But a tragic childhood loss redirects his course, and revenge has been boiling in his blood for years. When innocent and unaware Nora lands in his path, it’s as if the universe hands him the ammunition to finally drag his enemy through the mud.
But as his plan for vengeance gets more twisted, so do his feelings for Nora. And as her immersion into the upper crust dives deeper, she struggles to keep the secret she’s been guarding for eighteen years.
Heavy lies the crown, and when the ultimate betrayal blindsides her, will either of them survive the consequences that come crashing down on their heads?
This book was so much fun!! I loved the story of Nora and Asher!
This story takes place in a prep school located overseas (to me) in Britain. Ever since Nora’s mom has fallen in love with her Prince Charming, they have all been whisked away to a new land and new life.
When she firsts walks into the hallway of her new school, she had no idea what to expect and she certainly didn’t expect to meet a guy that would make her feel the way she does upon just meeting. However, Nora has no clue just what Asher’s true intentions are, but when his master plan is revealed, she won’t be the only one with a broken heart.
I love reading into a little glimpse of a lifestyle I know nothing about- a lifestyle of jet-setting, club hoping and staying out all hours of the day (sex, love and rock and roll at 18..YIKES!). While it seems so interesting, it also seems exhausting. And to have someone to share that with would be fun and exciting too. I also loved how at times innocent the characters seemed, and at other times, I completely forgot I was reading about high school people.
I would give this book a 4 star rating because it was a fun light read and I enjoyed the writing. I enjoyed the dual points of view (as always) and I loved how far away the book took me from my real life. I thought it ended rather short and quickly and I was surprised at how it wrapped up, but it was a story that kept me interested and engaged. I can’t wait to see what else I can read from Carrie Aarons!
