All Saints High #1
💜Arc kindly provided for an honest review 💜
As always my honest review and opinion 💜
I thought this book was going to be about a spoiled rich girl who finds her HEA. This was so much! From the very first page we get to understand how Daria feels about herself and about her relationship with her friends and family! I loved how LJ handled teenage drama without being cliché. I’ve never been a means in fact always loathed them in high school but with D’s story I felt like yeah maybe those bitches had it hard too. Everyday Daria feels like a loner in her own house then her mother takes these kids and make them priorities and gives them the attention she so desperately craves.
Since this book was announced, and all the teasers were posted on social media! I knew that there was something more to Daria and o was freaking right. She IS THAT B*^%^*. Loved how she could be vulnerable but at the same time so damn tough and strong. My favorite heroine of LJ Shen’s for sure! Well Eddie is awesome too.
💜Our heroine Daria:
From the first chapter I fell in love with her character. She was flawed and broken. This perfect persona was not real. I relate so much to her. The pressure at such a young age. I imagined she was going to be a complicated character but boy was she all kinds of fu** up. Daria’s mind is a freaking puzzle I felt like I the more I read the more I understood her and her struggles.
Our hero Penn:
From a young age he knows way too much about the world. He would do anything for the people he loves. I freaking LOVED him! He’s fearless, proud and a fucking badass. Penn is different from every other person in Daria’s life. He challenges and exposes her. Makes her feel vulnerable and she doesn’t like that.
It was attraction at first sight at a young age. Daria was curious about a boy so different from her. Penn was blinded by her beauty.
• The sexual tension is there in every encounter they have with each other. The arguing and insults are some sort of foreplay for them. Perfect match if you ask me.
From the first page I was consumed by this book!! I finished it in one sitting. I love seeing how the choices their parent’s maid played into the hole story! This book had all my emotions all over the place! I always love LJ Shen’s stories, but I’ve never cried with one of her books!! I was crying so bad with this one.
💜 Relationship: When they first meet it was sweet and kind of new for them both! Daria without knowing it, ruined their relationship without it even having a chance at starting.
I absolutely LOVED them!!! Most people think they have nothing in common yeah, they do! They both accept each other’s worst parts and love them regardless.
Penn pushes her! Looks right through her and tears down her walls one by one since their first meeting.
Jamie: This man … 🔥🔥🔥 he would do anything for his girls and especially his Daria 🙌🏻 Total Dilf 😍
💜I don’t know how LJ will top this one, but I can’t wait to find out!
Five beautiful and imperfect stars⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
💜Favorite Daria Quote: “I’d call you a bitch, but let’s admit it, your bite doesn’t really have teeth.”
💜Favorite Penn Quote: “I love you, Daria Followhill, and I think you love me, too. In fact, I think we fell at the same time. You, like rain, in drizzles, over the weeks. Me, like the fucking sky above my head, all at once, crashing without the faintest chance of stopping.”
💜Favorite Quote: “You were never a drizzle, Penn Scully. When I fell for you, you came beating down, and I felt you everywhere. You were hail.”
