All That Glitters (Alchemys Heirs lHange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review See this review in its natural environment Dani Reviews ThingsYou can find me on Twitter and Instagram I really wanted toike this but I couldn t The culture of the big name families being the most popular and admired in the small southern town really bothered me and the way the main character spoke about it was obnoxious I happen to African American English: A Linguistic Introduction live in a small southern town and the attitude of the haves is spot on but the view others have of them is not The only positive I can give is it is a uick readThis review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads35 Stars Young adult age range 12 The Sweetheart Sham will sure to please young adultsooking for a warm and fuzzy story without too much angst featuring second chance romance and a fake relationship tropes as well as adding an LGBT twist The southern setting was a nice change of pace with the dialect and accent gossipy townsfolk and the mentality of the Great Short Stories by African-American Writers locale giving a touch of down home humor Georgia Ann is a Southern Belle a daughter of a founding family from Culler South Carolina There are social rules she must abide by with gossip and pressure to do as those in the town wish from her Sheicking her emotional wounds in private suffering from the abrupt end of a relationship no one knew existed Instead of worrying about herself Georgia Ann focuses on her best friend Will by pressuring him to come out of the closet while simultaneously becoming his beard within a fake relationship to hide his budding real relationship with another in the closet boy Beau is Georgia Anne s one who got away having Drunk On Chocolate left the area abruptly due to the divorce of his parents Angsty brooding and wounded young adults and those young at heart will surely swoon over Beau After having been gone for uite some time Beau returns home for the summer to attend his cousin s wedding Georgia Ann s mother is planning the wedding of the summer with Georgia Ann having to be her helper With her faux relationship with Will and the return of his cousin Beau the secret one who got away The Sweetheart Sham has all the juicy sweet and charming elements sure to please readers I m on the fence with the writing style unsure it it s a good fit I m curious to read the next book in this series to see whether or not it was the writing style my mood or the subject matter I do recommend but suggest downloading the sample to determine if the writing style suits with your reading tastes I need to voice something that rubbed me slightly wrong with the LGBT theme I understood Will s reluctance to come out in a small southern town especially with the pressure of being a founding family s son While I appreciated Georgia Ann supporting Will in his decisions I felt her pressuring him to come out was in poor taste For the first few chapters she was so hyper focused turning most inner monologue and dialogue shared with Will into her warning himthreatening himmaking him promise to come outthinking about how she wished Will would just come out already While this plays into the overall premise of the story with such sensitive subject matter I felt Will s story should have been voiced only by Will not as if Georgia Ann had ownership in Will s journey While I m thrilled the LGBT community is popping up in mainstream fiction Will s coming out story belongs solely to Will Just my two cents from a member of said community Please note My review is of an unedited pre release copy of this book and assumes that any errors were corrected prior to publication I don t normally comment on the editing of a pre release copy while the editing issues present didn t affect my overall rating they did affect my reading enjoyment I must mention how it did yank me from the story sometimes several times per page mostly dealing with improper punctuation andorack thereof and switchedmissing words These errors are most Major Problems in African-American History: From Freedom to Freedom Now, 1865-1990s (Major Problems in American History Series) likely fixed in the final copy but I felt the need to point it out

how Beths Stable Stolen by an Alien little the incident was Iiked that this book explored that option Forgiveness wasn t given right away nor was it expected to be given The teens in this book were

own time with Georgie beside him It was also nice "to see that this wasn t the whole "see that this wasn t the whole of the book It was part of it but it was so much than whether or not Will was going

FREE READ The Sweetheart Sham Southern Charmed #1

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley This in no way impacted on my viewIf you ve read any of my reviews before you l know that contemporary YA fiction is one of my favourite genres to read I simply adore them When this one became available to reuest on NetGalley I knew it would be one for me In The Sweetheart Sham Georgia knows her best friend Will is keeping a massive secret from the rest of the town the fact that he s gay As his best friend she wants to help him in any way she can even if it means masuerading as his girlfriends so he has a valid reason to spend time out with his actual boyfriend That was than fine until her old friend and crush Beau Montgomery arrives home He s Will s cousin and they were the three musketeers until he upped and Secrets of the TEAS® Exam Study Guide left without a word Though she wants nothing than to see if they can rekindle their blossoming romance she wouldn t jeopardise Will s trust for anything Being English reading about the south of America has always interested me I ve alwaysoved seeing how the sense of community and Southern Charm can manifest and this book definitely fit the bill for me Georgia and Will s families were descended from the founding families of the town and as such there was a certain amount of wishing surrounding a member of each family marrying and finally uniting the families When they announced their relationship all members of the family were notably excited and elated except for Beau whose old crush on Georgia had never abated and he thought this might be the chance to apologise for Rising Above The Influence: A True Story about Alcohol, Drugs, and Recovery leaving and finally see if his feelings were reciprocated The main characters of Georgia and Beau were wonderful to read Told in dual POV the emotions within the two and their backstories came through in dribs and drabs which allowed the reader toearn about them the town and everything in between without it being an information overload They really endeared themselves to the audience and I was armoured with their romance and couldn t help myself from smiling whenever they were together on page

form of Georgia Ann In all The Sweetheart Sham is just Laughing to Keep from Dying like a cup of sweet tea refreshing and sweet enough that it will have you craving for I can t wait to see whose story is up next Personally I m hoping for Will and his mystery man Grade A I d seen this pop up on my Goodreads feed but thought based on the cover and title that it was adult romance The Sweetheart Sham really not a fan of the title is actually YA and would seemike everything I d enjoy in a book It has a Southern setting which I usually INTERRACIAL ROMANCE love and a fauxmance which I usuallyove and the backdrop of a wedding which I usually Stolen Years love But the story s pace felt pretty slow to me The fauxmance was mixed with a coming out story and I thought theses two stories deserved to be separated I really didove Will s story of finding ove with a guy in a small Southern town In some ways I thought it was a moving and powerful story than the main plot which was Georgie s abrupt abandonment by her former crush Beau and his subseuent return to town The reader has to wait a ong time for the reveal of why Beau eft without really saying goodbye and it after has to wait a ong time for the reveal of why Beau eft without really saying goodbye and it after Long Wait It Didn wait it didn have as much emotional resonance as I d hopedIn the end this wasn t a huge stand out for me It ooks Black Roots: A Beginners Guide to Tracing the African American Family Tree like others have enjoyed it so please be sure to check out other reviewsRead of my reviews on JenRylandcom or check out my BookstagramI received a free advance copy of this book from the publisher for possible review There s a certain movie Iove and can watch again and again It starts with two Southern kids growing up together drifting apart then reuniting thanks to a wedding It s filled with sexy accents and charm and dancing It just so happens to have a very attractive man in it too Of course I m talking about Sweet Home Alabama starring the amazing Reese Witherspoon That film is one of my go to heartwarmersThe Sweetheart Sham might not be set in Alabama but it has all the same winning ingredients spunky girl charming guy a reunion plenty of chemistry and a wedding to plan Not either of theirs by the way It also has a fake relationship trope wedding to plan Not either of theirs by the way It also has a fake relationship trope a twist instead of two people entering into a fake relationship and realising they have feelings for each other it s done to protect a secret the town s golden boy isn t ready to reveal yet So there were two plots going on Georgie and Beau s second chance romance and Will s coming out storyI My Hero Academia memes jokes - Funny and Jokes memes book loved all three main characters in The Sweetheart Sham Georgia Ann was kind smart and fierce proving you can be both a tomboy at times and a girly girl at others Will was definitely a charmer withots of confidence on

Finally Beau Ugh Wonderful Beau No he wasn t perfect but he was definitely a conscientious guy who wanted to make the people he cared about happyThe three of them had different experiences of
