Blog Tour & Giveaway: Fall For You by Cecilia Gray

I am pleased to be a part of Cecilia Gray’s Fall For You Blog Tour, an AToMR blog tour. I’ve already reviewed this amazing book. Click HERE to read my review!

Today I get to feature a fictional Twitter post between two main characters in the book. Enjoy!

Ellie

The Jane Austen Academy picks up on the first day of school,but rumors of the dreaded Mrs.
Berg (Bergie) taking over the reigns and making the school co-ed have been buzzing all summer,
especially because this means the girls now have to give up private rooms and have roommates
to make rooms for the guys.

Lizzie (FALL FOR YOU) and Ellie (SO INTO YOU) have been best friends at The Jane Austen
Academy since the first day of freshman year, and spend the summers in their home towns
wishing they could be together.

This is how I imagine them tweeting about it.

Author Bio 
Cecilia Gray lives in Oakland where she reads, writes and breaks for food. She also pens her biographiesin the third person. Like this. As if to trick you into thinking someone else wrote it because she is important. Alas, this is not the case.

Cecilia has been praised for “instilling a warmth and weight into her characters” (Romancing The Book Reviews) and her books have been praised for being “well-written, original, realistic and witty” (Quills & Zebras Reviews).

Several of her titles – including A Delightful Arrangement (The Gentlemen Next Door #1) and An Illicit Engagement (The Gentlemen Next Door #2) – have spent, in her view, a shocking amount of time on bestseller lists for romance, historical romance and regency romance in the US, UK, Italy and Spain.

Her latest release, FALL FOR YOU, the first in a series of young-adult contemporary Jane Austen retellings received a starred Kirkus review and was praised for being a “unique twist on a classic” and offering “a compelling action of action, drama and love.”

She’s rather enamored of being contacted by readers and hopes you’ll oblige.

4 Stars: I Really Liked It

The last thing that the girls at the elite Jane Austen Academy need is hot guys to flirt with. Please. They need to stay focused on something that lasts much longer: an acceptance letter from an Ivy.

But over the summer the school has been sold, and like it or not, the guys are coming. And it’s about to turn the Academy–and the lives of its students–totally upside down…
* * *
To say Lizzie and Dante are polar opposites is the understatement of the century. He’s a snooty Exeter transfer with more money than Google. She’s a driven study-a-holic barely keeping up with tuition. It’s obvious that Dante thinks he’s way too good for Lizzie. And Lizzie knows Dante is a snob with a gift for pushing her buttons.

But things are changing fast this year at the Academy. And when Lizzie’s quest to stop those changes blows up in her face, taking her oldest friendship with it, she has nowhere else to turn but to Dante, with his killer blue eyes, his crazy-sexy smile, and his secrets… Secrets Lizzie can’t seem to leave alone, no matter how hard she tries…

My Thoughts:
This was a really entertaining read. It was hilarious to see the behind the scenes of what happens when an all-girl school suddenly accepts boys. Most of the girls love the new additions, but Lizzie isn’t excited about the additional academic competition. She had dreams and goals and didn’t want boys to get in the way.

I was confused at first trying to figure out how all the additional characters fit into a Pride and Prejudice retelling then I realized there were other Jane Austen characters present. Some were from Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, and Emma. That made the read all the more fun for me since I’ve read and loved all of Jane Austen’s books.

The romance was fun and at times sweet. Overall the book felt a bit rushed, probably because it was such a short read. I wanted more details of Lizzie’s background. I wanted so much more when the read was over so I’m really looking forward to reading the next book coming out this month!
