The Jane Austen Academy, tome 6 : Always you de Cecilia Gray

Image
Présentation de l'éditeur : Anne has always done what her family has asked of her, including giving up her dreams of being a vet and breaking up with the perfect boyfriend—the one who just returned to town richer, hotter, and more heartbreaking than ever. With nothing to lose, will Anne finally ignore what everyone else tells her and go after her heart's desires?

Mon avis : 
Comme toujours,, Cecilia Gray réussit à réutiliser ses personnages (Lucy et Josh) au service de l'intrigue de Persuasion. Alors, même si Anne est touchante dans ce tome, j'avoue que j'ai été un peu moins séduite par la réinterprétation du scénario. Je trouve qu'il manque beaucoup de choses  dans cette version (et des importantes à mes yeux) comme par exemple la magnifique lettre de Frédérick. Du coup, ici, même si l'auteure a su instaurer une vraie relation entre Rick et Anne, il manque le désespoir de Frédérick, il…

The Jane Austen Academy, tome 5 : Only with You de Cecilia Gray

Présentation de l'éditeur : Emma has it all - looks, money, and luck. It's not like she keeps it all to herself - she's totally committed to helping those less fortunate. AKA, everyone. She invites her heartbroken friend to help with a weekend charity event with an eye to matchmake, but when that friend turns her eye toward the guy Emma wants for herself, how will she choose between friendship and her own feelings?

Mon avis  :
Une vignette sympathique qui reprend avec succès la trame d'Emma, marieuse maladroite. J'ai bien apprécié même si le scénario et la modernisation étaient sans surprises. J'ai surtout particulièrement aimé le fait que pour une fois, on sorte de l'Académie. Encore une fois l'auteure réussit à réinventer correctement les personnages en se servant de ceux qu'elle a créé (l'inénarrable Josh campe cette fois un Elton convaincant tandis que Anne endosse le rôle…

Mon avis :

The Jane Austen Academy, tome 1 : Fall for you de Cecilia Gray

Image
Présentation de l'éditeur : 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…
