Synopsis

Viola’s always been that girl from that family, so a scholarship to a prestigious private school in Florida was supposed to be her ticket out of poverty and into a brand-new life. But Viola’s secrets have followed her. Her relationship with the intelligent and gorgeous Riel should have been the salvation she needed—he understands her troubled past better than anyone. But then weird things start to happen.

Frightening messages.

Missing personal items.

The unsettling feeling that she’s being watched.

Viola’s never been one to give her trust easily, but she’ll need to trust in Riel if she’s going to survive her stalker. Because she’s not fighting for a new life anymore—she’s fighting to stay alive.

Review

Viola left her family to go to the school of her dreams thanks to a scholarship obtained by slightly defrauding.

Viola is adorable, she is so nice, she did not have an easy life, her mother is a stripper and her family did not have much money. Her latest boyfriend is a dangerous idiot and she needed this school to make money and get her mother out of trouble.

I love Viola very much, she is full of love and compassion, she feels followed but does not want to talk about it because she thinks she dreams.

Riel is his tutor, and it is he who should have had Viola’s scholarship but even if at the beginning he resents her a little, they will get to know each other, Viola will feel guilty because finally Riel looks like him, he is not a rich kid who can do what he wants.

I liked the evolution of the friendship in romance between Riel and Viola, it happens slowly but surely, they are both very cute and Riel’s little sister is adorable too.

I really liked this story, as far as the culprit was concerned I had doubts for a moment and then I found but frankly that’s not necessarily the main thing.

I really like Shannon Greenland’s style, it’s fluid, it reads fast and the story is exciting.

Quick word: A romance with mystery to discover absolutely.

Chronique

Viola a quitté sa famille pour aller dans l’école de ses rêves grâce à une bourse obtenue en fraudant légèrement.

Viola est adorable, elle est tellement gentille, elle n’a pas eu une vie facile, sa mère est stripteaseuse et sa famille n’avait pas beaucoup d’argent. Son dernier petit ami en date est un idiot dangereux et elle avait besoin de cette école pour gagner de l’argent et sortir sa mère de la galère.

J’aime beaucoup Viola, elle est pleine d’amour et de compassion, elle se sent suivie mais ne veut pas en parler car elle s’imagine qu’elle rêve.

Riel est son tuteur, et c’est lui qui aurait du avoir la bourse de Viola mais même si au début il lui en veut un peu, ils vont apprendre à se connaitre, Viola culpabilisera beaucoup parce que finalement Riel lui ressemble, ce n’est pas un gosse de riche qui peut faire ce qu’il veut.

J’ai aimé l’évolution de l’amitié en romance entre Riel et Viola, ça arrive lentement mais surement, ils sont très mignons tous les deux et la petite sœur de Riel est adorable aussi.

J’ai vraiment aimé cette histoire, en ce qui concerne le coupable j’ai eu des doutes un instant et puis j’ai trouvé mais franchement ce n’est pas forcément le principal.

J’aime beaucoup le style de Shannon Greenland, c’est fluide, ça se lit vite et l’histoire est passionnante.

En bref : Une romance sur fond de mystère à découvrir absolument.
