Summary: 

Will he take her back, or fling her aside like she deserves?

Three years ago Amanda made the biggest mistake of her life when she let her friends persuade her to reject the guy she loved. They were convinced he was a loser and wasn’t good enough for her.

Now Gregory’s back in Farmington . . . taller, stronger, hotter than ever, and worth millions. Those gorgeous girls who snubbed him before are now falling at his feet and he’s enjoying every moment of it.

Can he see past the pain Amanda caused him and give her a second chance? Or will she forever regret losing the only guy who truly loved her?

I love Jane Austen.
I love young adult books.
So modern day young adult Jane Austen retellings are right up my alley.

If you are in the mood for a good squeaky clean sweet high school romance book then Persuaded should be on the top of your list.  It’s a book you can hand to your tween or teen without worrying about the content yet has enough crossover appeal that you can enjoy it for yourself.

On a side-note I met Jenni James this summer at the LDSBA Convention.  She is just as bubbly and fun in person as she seems when reading her books.  Looking forward to the rest of this series.
