However this story was actually a good read for me.
I loved the relationship which builds between Wrenn and Dalton. It is not as clear cut as it first appears, there are a lot of underlying issues to deal with throughout the story.
The epilogue is hard to read due to the reasons behind it. As I said this is not a straight forward love story with the traditional HEA most readers will be expecting. But the ending is perfect in my eyes because the author stays true to the story she has written. She doesn't try to give the reader the ending they perhaps would prefer.
I'm reviewing this differently to normal so you can see where I'm coming from.
Wrenn - 3 stars
Dalton - 4 stars
supporting characters - as in Paige - 2 stars.
Sexiness and heat - 4 stars
Storyline - 4 stars
Deliverance of storyline - 3 stars
Overall I rate this 3.5 stars.
So as you can see I didn't enjoy Wrenn as much as I did Dalton and to be 100% truthful I have no idea why? I connected with them both but definitely more so with Dalton. I think if I really try to put my finger on it Dalton's character didn't waiver it was solid whereas Wrenn's did sometimes.
Phew I can't deny this book is hot, their scenes were definitely on the high heat scale. Again this is where I may have found Wrenn's character a little mixed, she instigates a whole lot and then it comes across that she's very naive about a lot of it.
The story really revolves his 8 weeks at Tennerson Girls Academy and the underlying illness that he may or may not have, couple that with what Wrenn has already gone through with her family, then add Paige into the mix and it all makes for an interesting read.
Although this does make for an interesting read, I felt it lacked a little in the deliverance. For an example I think what Paige did was delivered very quick and concluded as though it was nothing. This could have been built into a much more angsty couple of scenes but it just didn't cumulate and build like it could have done.
All in all this is a pleasant read it's a sweet story with a whole pile of hotness thrown in.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If it wasn't for the sheer desire to sleep overwhelming me, this would have been read in one sitting!! I was glued.
The story isn't full of teenage angst, it isn't full of major drama, it IS a delightful and emotional read, with just the right amount of drama to make it realistic.
Dalton is 23 and has just graduated from college and has taken a short term position at an elite private boarding school for girls. He is young, attractive and the focus of attention from almost every girls in the school. Meanwhile, he is having to deal with making a decision that will change his life.
Wrenn is 18 and is living with her Aunt, who is also the Headmistress of the school. She is shunned by the popular girls and looked down upon because of her Aunt's position and the fact she doesn't come from money. She is dealing with a great deal of trauma and still suffers from vivid nightmares from it.
The attraction is subtle in the beginning then rapidly builds up to something that neither of them can deny. They know it is wrong, but they can't, nor do they want to walk away from the feelings that they are developing for each other.
Just as things are going well for them, a specific incident throws everything up in the air, unveiling a lot of secrets that have the potential to destroy their relationship.
Missy Johnson did a good job of writing a feel good romance novel, despite the bittersweet ending.
Always You was not what I was expecting. To be honest, I'm not sure what I was expecting looking back.
Wren has to move in with her Aunt after losing her whole family in a tragic accident. She moves from her friends, school and everything she knows to live with her Aunt. She is enrolled in the private all-girls school that her Aunt is the head mistress at and if that wasn't bad enough, she doesn't have to type of disposable income that the other girls at the school have. I liked Wren, she has an old soul but on occasion you can see her age peeking through. She developed well through the book and I was able to connect with her.
Dalton is the only young male teacher in a school full of horny, hormonal girls and as such his is centre of attention. Not that he's interested. He just wants to finish this contract out and then move on with his career. But then he sees her and he just can't stay away. Regardless of the fact he knows he shouldn't and not just because he is her teacher.
Did I enjoy this book? Yeah actually I did. It was different in a different kind of way but it didn't rock my sock. I didn't really get the whole taboo teacher/student relationship vibe and it kinda felt like a secondary issue in the book. Maybe that was just the way it came across to me. It was the `secret' that took centre stage and by the end of the book the fact they were teacher/student just didn't factor with me at all. The book felt rushed in some places and the issue with Paige could have been made more intense but then this wasn't really an intense book. There wasn't much suspense and where there was suspense it didn't last long.Read more ›
