Wrenn is living with her Aunt the head mistress of this elite private all girls school. That gave it more of an edge. Dalton being thrown into teaching hormonal teenage girls was another like for me. The girls were of course bad, evil, and in need of a good smack.
What was the big draw for me? Kass! Wrenn's best friend in school. She deserved much more of a spotlight, in my opinion. She was a senior in an all girls school who was gay. I applaud the author for thinking up Kass and I really wish she had more of a role in the book. There was one conversation about being with a boy over a girl. That was meaningful for me! There is somewhat heavy subject matter with the loss of her parents, so this helped to lighten it a little.
There was a girl who harrassed Kass and Wrenn. Her name was Paige and she was stirring up trouble when she could. Of course Miss Paige was part of a nasty clique. I would have loved to see Paige following them or maybe secretly crushing on Kass and that could have been her source of anger. I guess I hate mean girls and think there has to be a reason. Can someone just be that mean? I guess so.
There is an issue that Dalton had hanging over his head. That reveal was pretty good. The messages are there, some more subtle than others. It is told with Wrenn and Dalton's POV. Enjoy!
Dalton & Wrenn met when they were children, and Wrenn unknowingly helped Dalton out of an emotional hard time. Eleven years later, they meet again, unaware of their related past. Wrenn has suffered a tragedy in her life, has been uprooted from her home to forge a new way with relatives. Her aunt & uncle love her very much, and her life is on an even keel, aside from the events of the tragedy. Dalton comes to be a sub at her school, and there is an instant connection. Or, as we know but they don't, a re-connection. : )
Their story is fast-paced and warm, sweet and a little spicy (sometimes a lot spicy), and the maturity level of the relationship is spot-on. Wrenn says something at one point that I really liked, and put any squeamishness I might have about a student-teacher relationship to rest, along the lines of her being 18 & if her tragedy hadn't happened, they might have been in college at the same time. They may have connected (eh, re-connected) at school, and no one would bat an eye at their relationship.
I loved the pacing, the story itself, and how each helps the other to face things and to live life to the fullest. There is something else going on w/ Dalton, but I think you should read for yourself and fall in love. : )
Wrenn and Dalton met as young kids and had a profound impact. Then when they met again many years they were drawn to each other and unsure why. They knew they shouldn't, but couldn't help themselves. Though each thought it could be disastrous for different reasons.
- “I just don’t get why you would worry about maybe getting sick, especially when it wouldn’t happen for ages. You can’t change it, so what good is worrying going to do?”
- ... you can’t run from your problems — they always catch up with you in the end.
- Could he see how nervous he made me?
There is tragedy for both characters in there past but Wrenn and Dalton learn through shared experiences comes some understanding and appreciation, and not to mention some very sexy scenes.
Wrenn can be a bit childish at times when she doesn't get what she wants but hey she is 18yo, and who wouldn't pitch a fit if what she wants is sexy and a amazing kisser.
The ups and downs kept me thinking until the end. The epilogue summarized some loose ends nicely but I crave to know more. Here with my fingers crossed this isn't the last we hear of Wrenn and Dalton.
Take a chance because in the end you will know it was Always You...
