I got this book as an arc by the author as an exchange of an honest review

Well the first things I want to say is after reading the blurb of the book I thought the story was quite different from any other books I read.

Here a crany falls for a townie who is from a very orthodox town, where everyone is in everyone’s business.

Goddd!!! Emily’s father was such a tool always looking and maintaining his reputation. Their house was like a few centuries back where girls are dominated over the boys and where women have to answer about her whereabouts rather than a man.

Emily meets Steel, a carny, in a carnival held in her town and to get back to her father she spends time with Steel and that is the new gossip story the entire town.

“Hi, Mom.” My jaw is tight with tension.

“Hi, honey, just phoning to make sure everything’s okay.”

“Of course it is. Why wouldn’t it be?”

“Well, you know, just making sure.”

“Have you checked up on Cody?”

There’s silence for a moment before she says, “No, hy would I do that?”

“Um, maybe because he’s younger than me.”

“Well, he knows how to take care of himself.”

“And I don’t?”

Her sigh blasts through the phone. There’s a rustling noise, she must be covering the mic so I can’t hear what she’s saying to my father.

“Honey,” my father is now instead on the phone. “Remember, don’t do anything stupid.”

Where is this even coming from? Has someone texted them about their daughter talking to a carny tonight? I hate being from a small town. How stupid do they think I am? Why don’t they trust me?

“And why would I do that, Dad?”

“Emily, you have to remember what my reputation means in this town. Do not do anything to risk my reputation.”

Seriously? Not, because I love you and don’t want you to get hurt? All that matters is your reputation.

Through gritted teeth, I say, “Don’t worry, Dad, I know how important your reputation is.” More important than me.

His father lock her down in her room and Steel is sent off to another town for some work. If you ask me, it was so much filmy!

Both try to find each other, despite Emily’s situation in her home town. My god people were so damn nosy. I wanted to shout at them for her behalf and tell people to mind their own damn business!

“I’m praying for your family,” the old bitty Barbara behind the counter says.

For my family. Not for me, because I don’t matter one bit to these people. It takes everything in me not to tell her to fuck off. Barbara’s the biggest gossip in this town, and I’m positive I’m her number one topic.

But well, both Steel and Emily find each other and my god, after their parents find out about them getting back together, there was so much drama.  Fhew. There were people following and finding them! God that was so much fun. and sort of crazy too… i mean who in this generation would do such illogical things?!

The entire book was so much entertaining and I love every bit of it!

Is it something about Jana Aston that I love her books so much. This is the third book she wrote and off course the third I read of hers and I love each and every character in her books to deepest. After reading Right I didn’t know there was book for Sandra and Gabe. But well, more the book more the merrier (I think I did something wrong there, but I don’t care).

So, this third book is short story for Sandra, Sawyers assistant and Gabe, Sawyer’s business partner and best friend. Gabe’s not technically Sandra’s boss but his boss’s best friend and business partner. I liked the way that girl thinks.

I have a crush on my boss’ best friend. 
At least it’s not my brother’s best friend. 
Or my best friend’s brother. 
Or… never mind. It’s all pretty cliche. 

And worse? My boss’ best friend is his business partner. Which sort of makes him my boss too. Okay – it’s not sort of. It’s definite. Gabe Laurent is off limits. Totally off limits. 

So, Gabe and Sandra were introduced in the prior book Right (Sawyer and Everly’s story) and I thought that was it. I mean who would have thought we would also get to read about sweet and awkward behaving Sandra. (Trust me her awkwardness is nothing like Chloe)

The starting of the book is quite interesting if you ask me. Gabe get his hand on sex quiz which Sandra jokingly filled given by her friend Preston in their quarterly meeting. I will suspense it you with the sex quiz questions, don’t want to ruin them for you all.

 Sweet Sandra wants to do dirty things with me.

You know after reading that quiz what did that hot nerd, oh yes i am talking about Gabe, did? he folded the paper in half and kept it in his pockets. The mortification of it was so silly. My God. I laughed so much reading this book. A sweet and quirky and amazing cute book.

Wow!!!! After reading the blurb of the books I was confused as anyone else that what this book was all about and let me tell this book is freaking awesome. I have never read any book n this author but I think now I have to read all of her work because oi freaking loved this one. This book was soo self enduring I think. This was all about a girl want to fit in the group of people and have to fake it because she is so awkward.

The start of the story was quite interesting, Misha and Ryen both were pen pals started writing when they were in 5th grade, allotted by their class teacher. But after that first assignment they continue writing to each other. Despite living only 30 miles away from each other, they both made decision to never to search each other on social net or send a photo or anything. Their letters were their lifeline for each other. They use to share each and every single detail of their life and sometimes they exchanged letters more than one time a day. Their letters are something like this.

Dear Misha,

So, have I ever told you my secret shame?

And no, it’s not watching Teen Mom like you. Go ahead and try to deny it. I know

you don’t have to sit there with your sister, man. She’s old enough to watch TV by her-

self.

No, actually, it’s far worse, and I’m a little embarrassed to tell you. But I think

negative feelings should be released. Just once, right?

You see, there’s a girl at school. You know the kind. Cheerleader, popular, gets every-

thing she wants… I hate to admit this, especially to you, but a long time ago I wanted

to be her.

Part of me still does.

You would absolutely hate her. She’s everything we can’t stand. Mean, cavalier,

superficial… The kind who doesn’t have a thought stay in her head too long or else she

needs a nap, right? I’ve always been fascinated with her, though.

And don’t roll your eyes at me. I can feel it.

 

After seven years of creating this beautiful friendship they were destine to meet at some point of time. right?

Misha was the guitarist in their band and Ryen was in senior year high school. It was sort of like Mean Girls, but the popular one, here, Ryen does this so people don’t ignore her. She was quite awkward at talking but she never wanted to be ignore. Quite a dilemma. But what she was with Misha in her letters was her true self and not some vile bitch she portrays at school.

But when circumstances brought Misha in front of Ryen, his first emotion was betrayal because he never imagined the girl he was falling for was such a crude. So, Misha does what a normal guy would do and ignore all her letters. but Ryen doesn’t like to get ignored so she does something major which no one have expected her to do. Well I was also shock for a bit that she is the one but well you need the outsource for your voice.

Misha takes admission in Ryen’s school, the reason behind him taking the admission is not Ryen but something majorly else. There, the more he sees he sees Ryen the more he despises her.

Alone.

Empty.

Fraud.

Shame.

Fear.

But after talking to her and after insulting her, he feels for the real Ryen.

Whereas from the start Misha knew who Ryen was, she had no idea. The Guy who insulted her, who kissed like he meant it and which was the best thing she ever felt, that guy was Masen Lawson not Misha Laer.

When secrets are disclosed Misha and Ryen have many stakes to lose and most importantly they have each other to lose which they love more than anything else.

There were so many ups and downs in there I was truly feeling like I was in a roller-coaster. I never wanted to keep the book down and now that I have finished it I want more of them.

Well first of I would like to say that Meghan March is one of my favourites authors and I would never miss a book by her. In Beneath series, Beneath the shadows is the 6th book and I certainly hope it’s not the last one. (because I really really and desperately want to read about Hennessy). everything I mean every freaking about this books was amazing.

This book is of Bishop and Eden. Well I have heard of Bishop just one time in the previous book Beneath These Lies (Valentina and Rix’s story) if he was ever mentioned in 1th Beneath This Mask and 3rd Beneath These Chains book I don’t know because I still haven’t read them.

So, lest cut the chase and let me tell you like all the heroes in Meghan March books, this hero is also caveman and super possessive of what’s his. And certainly, sweet and proper Eden is his. Wonder how tattooed up guy falls for a prime and sweet little girl? Here’s the book for you.

Eden is the daughter of Dominic Casso. You don’t know who Dominic Casso is? Well let me refresh your memory. He has the illegitimate children such as Creighton Karas, Billionaire (The Dirty Billionaire series) and Cavanaugh Westman, Hollywood super-star (Dirty Girl Duet). If you haven’t read the spin off books don’t worry, nothing will clash by reading this one. Just know that Dominic is a well-known mobster and FBIs are after him. So, secure her another illegitimate child Eden, she is sent off to somewhere where no one would know. And that’s how she ended up in New Orleans during Mardi Gras.

Bishop was such a guy, that she is so sweet why would she wants me and I have to protect her and that stuff but my god that possessiveness was super sexy. Fhew.

Something about her called to my most basic instincts. Protect. Claim. Defend. 

Eden wanted to experience her new gain freedom where there no one walking like a shadow to protect she wanted to everything by herself but fate has its own term as she always ends up near Bishop.

There’s no best story with the past coming in between so here it is, Bishop has something very big in his closet and wants to protect Eden from it. But her doesn’t know that his sweet Eden herself is a daughter of a gangster.

The thing I love most about these books is that the character of prior book also play a very significant role in the this book. It like watching a TV series where all the caveman guys are with their better halves or are finding one. Where would I get one of these? Sigh. I love it.
