Book description: 

Modern retelling/based on Sense & Sensibility.

The last thing that the girls at the elite Jane Austen Academy need is guys. But over the summer the school has been sold, and like it or not, the guys are coming. And they're about to turn the Academy—and the lives of its students—totally upside down…

Meet sweet and sensible Ellie who hasn’t met a problem her mom’s yoga mantras can’t fix. But when her parents threaten to pull her from the Academy just as her flirtation with the cutest boy in school heats up, will Ellie be able to keep her cool?


I first want to give a big Thank You to AToMR Blog Tours for allowing me to read and review So Into you and allowing me to be a part of this tour. I have to say I love love love these books so far! Fall For You was the first in the series and So Into you is the second book. 

So Into you follows Ellie whose life is pretty simple. Her mothers motto is one of piece and happiness and not to let life get you down. So when Ellie returns to school and finds out she may have to leave the academy because of her tuition and her parents decide that they want to move to another country. Man oh man does Ellie have a fit and she enlists the help of her friend Emma to see if there is anything she can do to stay at the school and not move to another country. The JAA is home for her and she does not want to go live anywhere else let alone change schools.

And if life could not get any worse for her she meets Edward. Edward is her crush and as they get closer she is definitely not moving anywhere. For once things feel so right and she does not want to rock the boat. But all good things come to end and soon she will find out that Edward has been keeping secrets from her. What is a girl to do? Will Ellie have to leave the only home she has ever known? Will Ellie and Edward become a couple? What secrets is Edward hiding? 

Come along for a crazy ride and see what happens in this installment of The Jane Austen Academy!

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 mix of action, drama and love.” 

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

It sounds amazing! I have not read Sense and Sensibility, and I must really get on that. I love when authors give a modern take on classics! Thanks for the giveaway!
