First off this cover is absolutely gorgeous. It absolutely pulled me into wanting to find out more about the book. What sealed the deal was it was described as a modern re-telling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. So how could I not want to read it?!
The book is about an English professor named Anne working on getting tenure and guess who happens to become the new president of the college she works at, her ex-fiance. Duhn duhn duuuuuuhn. The position she is working toward is very coveted so she has to write a book and have it sell in order to secure her permanent position. Definitely does not seem simple and I seriously feel for her.
Anne as a character is really admirable. She just wants to secure her position and get her head above water. She has so much on her plate, she definitely deserves tenure.
The romance part of this book should have definitely been left out. I would have just loved to see Anne working through her struggles in life. But for a modern re-telling of a classic, this book was pretty good.
