Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review

A mixture of the movie Clueless and the reality show Southern Charm is the perfect way to describe this book. Wealth, power, expectations and plenty of drama!

Maddison was raised for one thing and one thing only, to keep her family high in society's eye and the money flowing. Ultimately that means finding a suitable, and rich, man to desire her. As much as her southern charm and etiquette is on display in this book, so is her whiny "OMG" valley girl attitude on life. I had to picture her as a puppet and somewhat clueless herself to be able to relate and find her somewhat likeable. Spoon fed "rules" of which high society must love by and that anything else would be popularity suicide.

I had my suspicious throughout the book about Liam and found him one dimensional. The person I related to the most to was Rand. The once shy boy turned into a buff, soft spoken man. His half smiles and gentle touches had my heart doing flips. I wasn't sure what to make of the drama that surrounded him and Maddison, but what I wasn't prepared for was the ending.

Just when things were coming to the light, and what I thought would be Maddison's shining moment, we are brought to an epilogue. I wanted to experience Maddison taking hold of her life and her moment of self reflection and growth. Closure. But I didn't.

Overall, I felt this book was touching at times and certainly had a dramatic flare. An interesting YA read that I recommend to anyone looking for a qlimpse of high society scandal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad book, but not something I would normally enjoy reading. 29 July 2016
By Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book for free through Reading Deals, in exchange for an honest review.

Some Spoilers

Let me start by saying that the author's writing is very good. I could feel the emotions coming through the characters during all situations. So, well done.
On the other hand the main character Madison is really hard to like. I understand the she was raised with a lot of money and that her behavior is typical for a girl raised in her situation. An accomplished dancer, dutiful daughter, queen bee of her school and town, the eye of the most popular guy at their private school, she has everything going for her. However, she dreams of another life. She wants to be a singer, to get away from her abusive parents and their scheming to marry her off into 'older money than theirs'. A good premise for a story and character build up.

Spoilers follow

After her dad runs a girl off the road during a drunk driving episode, that nearly kills the girl, Madison is forced to help brush the incident under the rug by helping the girl's brother, Rand, at the end of the year competition. A deal her father worked out with the other girl's father. Her parents force the issue and when she argues, they physically abuse her. She tells them she will help but on her terms. So she figures that if she pays off Rand or sleeps with him, she can get him to go away and she can do the competition by herself. When she goes to offer the proposition to Rand, she is stands there thinking the whole time that she is going to need a massage and a bath and a full body scrub because she cannot believe that she has to be in the presence of a mechanic and that he is so dirty and disgusting. But thank god she wore her sexy bra and panties cause no man resist them. Or her for that matter. And if the Lights are low she won't notice that he is all dirty and covered in grease. When he refuses her advances, she is pissed because HE refused HER even though she didn't want to sleep with him to begin with. She is like this through the whole book. One minute you want to cheer for her and the next you want to slap her for being so pompous She is too high and mighty in a lot of situations and down to earth other times. It was a bit confusing at times and I was left scratching my head.
We learn a lot about her character and her background throughout the book. Like that her parents basically whore her out to their cronies sons to be arm candy and have sex with them at the end of the arrangement that her parents set up. And if she doesn't, her mom will slap her or her dad will cut her off from her trust fund money.
Throughout all this, she is trying to win the hand of Liam (the prince charming of her school and her rich society) who is a complete ass to her but charming at the same time, while discovering there is more the Rand than she first thought.
It was just a little too much for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Money can't buy happiness. 13 Nov. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First of all, I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book, through Reading Deals, so I could give an honest review. I could not relate to the very rich lifestyle of the youth and parents in this book-- it is far from my own midwest farming community life!. However, I have recently learned that some of the events in this book, such as arranged "dates" and "escorting" for business or social standing does really happen. When I first began this book I was concerned that it was going to be a book about physical abuse by parents. As I read the book, it showed a totally different type of abuse--- emotional, neglect. It showed me a lifestyle of the rich and famous, but sad, very shallow and starved. That said, I really enjoyed this book. I would suggest it for an older teen/young adult. It proves that money cannot buy happiness!

4.0 out of 5 stars Teen Drama and Mature Storyline 23 Nov. 2016
By Nancy Gilmore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am not a young adult, but I enjoyed this book. The author is very good and the characters were well written. I usually find it hard to like characters like Madison. She seemed at first like a spoiled, whiny, brat. Then, as I read more, I found her to be a lot more likeable and endearing. I wanted to know more about what happened at the talent show and the time between then and when she went to college. It seemed like the author wanted to make us decide on our own. All in all, I recommend this book for older teens and adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and interesting book to read 3 April 2016
By Diana's Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Counting Stars by Jordan Deen is a very interesting story. Even though I can’t relate to Madison I do understand her. She comes from money and her parents have high expectations on everything she does. She is a ballerina, she has had etiquette classes, and more, everything that someone in their lifestyle does to prepare them to be married off to another family that has just as much money or more, more is better. I found it interesting that Madison had to escort sons of wealthy families for parties and events. Her parents were only interested in finding the right family, being seen with the right people. Because that is what is important in their lifestyle. Madison is pretty much trained to always do what her parents want no matter what and when her Dad forces her into a situation with a guy who is not in her crowed of friends at school, it is really hard on her. She wants to keep up her appearance (she of course is always worried how she looks) and not be seen talking to this guy who is not in her class. Of course something happens to change that.
I will say this was a fun and interesting book to read. I felt it was a quick read and was all in Madison’s POV. She is trying to find herself and has stuff to deal with like most 17 year olds. Part of me wants to say there needed to be more emotional drama but then again, maybe this is how Madison’s drama is. I am thinking that Madison really isn’t capable of more drama in her shelter life. I think that if there was too much drama, it could have just dragged out the story and could have lost interest. I guess what I am saying since it was all in Madison’s POV this book is good. Could have been interesting to have also read from the two guys in the stories their POV but that still didn’t take away from this story. I am giving it 5 stars because I loved reading this book and even though there is was more potential this story still has enough for me to totally enjoy it. I also thought the ending was great.
I want to thank NetGalley and Book Enthusiastic for a copy of this book to review for an honest Opinion. I received a free copy of a book in exchange for an honest review
