Dive into the fabulous, fun lives of six Academy girls as their friendships are tested, torn and ultimately triumph…
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 just 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 pressing 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…

The last thing that the girls at the elite Jane Austen Academy need is hot guys to flirt with. 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…
The Jane Austen Academy series are modern retellings of Jane Austen classics set at a beachside California boarding school. Don't miss the rest of the Jane Austen Academy series, where sassy girls, hot guys and Jane Austen collide!

My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved this book! It may be because I love all things Jane Austen and my absolutely favorite book of all times is Pride & Prejudice, but put those aside, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was so nice reading a book and relating it so much to Pride & Prejudice. I quickly fell in love with the characters. Lizzie obviously being the character like Lizzie Bennet, Dante quickly taking a place in my heart just like Darcy, Anne being the sweet and love-able character that Jane Bennet always was, and Rick taking the place of Bing. What I was most surprised about was that Georgiana took residence within Fall For You and it made my heart melt. I love Georgiana and having Georgiana in the series makes you see the other side of Dante.
All the twists and turns that are inside Pride & Prejudice are also inside Fall For You just in a more modern way. I definitely related to this book. I loved the way it was written and I loved how easily it was to read. I am definitely looking forward to reading more of not just this series but everything Cecilia Gray has to offer.
If you are an avid Jane Austen fan, you will not be disappointed with this series. I definitely recommend that you read this series because it is well worth the enjoyment of stepping into a Jane Austen land in the modern era. I cannot wait to read the second installment of the Jane Austen Academy Series.
