Thank heavens this series is very different to Consequences. That was just too much to bear. This is an exciting, tense book that keeps you nervous an..Show More »d anxious for more.
Brief synopsis: our heroine Alex/Charli/Alexandria is desperately fighting the privileged but soulless future as the heir to one of America's 'Royal' Southern families. She loathes the customs, misogyny and emptiness of a future plotted out for her since her birth.
Then she meets Lennox. He offers wildness and unpredictability and she gratefully falls into a week of freedom and hedonism completely out of character for her, kind of a last hurrah before going to graduate school and 'adult' life.
I felt the familiar rage toward the men in her family I felt when reading Consequences . They have an impregnable sense of entitlement and arrogance. Their behaviour goes well beyond highhandedness: there is an almost Kafkaesque quality to the complete impotence and powerlessness the women endure.
It's a great read with so many twists and turns you can't predict the plot at all. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Can't wait to get the next book.
