Blog Tour, Book Review | Schooled by Piper Lawson

Schooled by Piper Lawson
New Adult Contemporary Romance
Expected Release: June 1, 2015

Purchase Link: AMAZON


Twenty-one year old Alexis Caine is so close to her dream she can taste it. And it tastes like validation and Häagen-Dazs.

In a few months she'll graduate with a shiny new business degree and launch a fashion label with her best friend Ava. All the planning, the dedication, and the saying ‘no’ to everything—and everyone—will have been worth it.

Then Dylan Cameron, Ava’s tall, dark and broody younger brother, returns from the East coast. Lex has hardly seen him in years and given his reputation for partying, girls, and worse, that’s just fine with her.

But suddenly Dylan’s all grown up. And a dangerous night of unplanned confessions for both of them threatens to tear Lex's carefully constructed world off its axis.

Because one sassy control freak plus one prodigal son equals chemistry that refuses to be ignored.

 Alexis Caine defined the word determined. She made her dream and is doing everything she can to achieve it. She’s almost there. She and Ava, her best friend and partner on their soon to be business didn’t need any distractions, most especially boys.

Soon, she’d graduate with a business degree and is about to launch a fashion label, Travesty with the artistic Ava. The label was their blood and sweat, and everything should be perfect. Failure is not an option.

Then here comes the distraction came strutting in, all grown up. Dylan Cameron, Ava’s problematic brother returning from the East Coast. They haven’t seen each other for quite sometime, imagine her surprise seeing him all grown up and filled in the right places. His reputation precedes him, although, he might not be the boy she thinks he is. There is more to Dylan that what she perceived him to be. And it can be very, very dangerous.

The two year gap didn’t bother me. I like Dylan, he was a big surprise to me – there were times you want to love him, and there were times you’d like to strangle him for some things he did. And yet, he knows how to work his way back into your hearts. Talk about subtle grand gestures.

I love their honest talks, the clash of their personalities: since our girl here is pretty much and determined control freak and he was the grounded one. He was mature enough to handle her or so he thinks. They have chemistry, and although Lex tried to fight it at first, but it was too powerful to ignore.

I think it was Alexis’ sheer determination and perseverance that made her successful at what she does. She might got side-tracked, she fell in love along the way – all those pain and heartbreaks were worth it because in the end, she got her forever.

Schooled is my first Piper Lawson book, and I enjoyed reading it. It’s a great way to start the series. I’m looking forward for Ava’s turn for her happy ending.

Schooled is Piper Lawson’s debut novel. Piper loves reading and writing stories about sassy, sexy, smart women and the guys who fall hard for them.

Piper’s main household expenditures include books, shoes, and chocolate, not necessarily in that order. Coffee = life (and she’ll defend it accordingly, especially when cornered). Piper has two business degrees, neither of which she’s leveraged into a fashion label.

Home is Canada plus occasional sunny winter escapes.
