Only with You by Cecilia Gray Blog Tour & Giveaway

Only With You by Cecilia Gray
(The Jane Austen Academy Series #5)
Publication date: May 2014
Genres: Romance, Young Adult

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

My Review:

I have fallen in love with the Jane Austen Academy series that Gray has written!  After each book I think that she cannot write another one better....but she does, every time!  Only with You is an amazing modern re-telling of Emma and I thoroughly enjoyed this story.  I found myself pulled into Emma's matchmaking world where she needed to help people, she needed to feel good enough, she needed validation that she was a good person.  She had an amazing heart full of compassion and kindness for others.  I couldn't believe she couldn't see what was in her own heart and when she did, that she was willing to sacrifice that for her friend!! The emotions are heart-felt and I found myself sympathizing with Emma but cheering for her to do the right thing for herself!  The reader can't help but fall for Knight; he is constant, kind and the buff muscles don't hurt either!  Any Austen fan will enjoy this modern-day take on Emma!

Happy Reading!!!

About the Author:

Cecilia Gray lives in the San Francisco Bay Area where she reads, writes and breaks for food. She also pens her biographies in 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.

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