Fall For You (The Jane Austen Academy Series, #1: A Modern Retelling of Pride & Prejudice) by Cecilia Gray Blog Tour Stop

Jane Austen meets Pretty Little Liars in this fresh, new young-adult series!

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...


Thank you to AToMR Tours for allowing me to be a part of this great tour. I have to say when I heard about this series I stalked the internet to see what I could find out. I love all of Jane Austen's books and I am excited to see where this series is going. The first book in the series is called Fall For You and I have to tell you I LOVED IT! I wanted more when it ended and I was yelling at my kindle.

In Fall For You Lizzie is coming back to school after having the summer off to a mess. The school has a new owner and they want to remain anonymous. Then they send a dear john e-mail out to the student body saying things are going to be changing this year. For starters they will no longer be a girl only academy because they are going co-ed and the name of the school will be changing as well to reflect the school being co-ed.

Soon Lizzie will find out that friendships will be tested and some friendships will change. Then enemies will become friends and work together. Lizzie biggest problem is Dante. He is infuriating but he soon wears her down and they start to have a close friendship. Lizzie will have to learn to crawl before she walks because things will change and she will see who she can and cannot trust. Lizzie will have to decide if she has been being very judgmental and misjudging people or if she has hit the nail on the head so to speak. Lizzie will have to do a lot of soul searching but in the end she will see who will stand by her.

This is a summer must read for all teen girls out there looking for a fun fast read with romance and a little cattiness!

Author Bio
Cecilia Gray lives in Oakland 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.

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.

I first saw Fall for You on another blog in a giveaway. I looked up the blurb and knew I had to buy and read immediately. Such a cute story and I hope all the others are just as good. Whenever So Into You gets released I will be all over that.
