Alex has finished high school and is now at Princeton, the college that her father went to. Alex has left her first love behind and she is adjusting to life in college, wanting to join a sorority and making new friends. Alex learns that Princeton is going to test her to find out how much strength she has, but what she has to realise is that whilst she is having a good time and enjoying herself by discovering new things she needs to keep her grades up as she has worked so hard to get there, she doesn't exactly want to loose it all.
Alex ends up meeting a new guy there and whilst it's all good to begin with she learns that she has to start growing up a little. Over the next four year she shows that she can do it all but when something happens to the guy she thinks she has fallen for she knows that she can't wait around for him to get better and that she has to follow her own dreams.
Will Alex achieve everything that she wants to throughout her time at college or will it become too much for her to handle. The one thing that she does know is that her love letters from back home always help her in the end no matter what the situation she is in.
I can't wait to read the next one, another amazing book by Clarissa Carlyle.
When Alex manages to land herself on academic probation, she is determined to turn things around. The last thing that she wants to do is to disappoint her family or the man that had worked so hard to help her get into Princeton, Mark, her former math teacher and lover. (That sounds naughty I know but their relationship was entirely consensual and very loving). In fact, Mark had chosen to let her go to follow her dreams and had promised to wait for her to return to him no matter how long that might take.
Alex’s newfound determination is short-lived though as in walks Oscar Deloitte, a totally brilliant, gorgeous and troubled young man that leads Alex astray from her studies and from Mark. She falls head-over-heels, getting completely caught up in the intense passion that springs up between them and again foregoes her studies in order to spend all of her time with him. This time, Alex is facing expulsion if she doesn’t turn things around. Her decision to refocus her efforts on her studies and to attend summer classes leads to a painful breakup with Oscar. Still, she does manage to turn things around academically despite her depression. When junior year commences, Alex is back on track academically and oddly enough, back with Oscar. Having missed her during the few months that they were apart, he decides to confess the reason for his moodiness and erratic behavior. Learning that Oscar is also grieving the loss of a loved one, and that he blames himself as does she, Alex is only too willing to give him another chance.
Will Alex be able to juggle an intense relationship and an increasingly intense academic program or will she fail? What will become of her former lover, Mark? Although Alex had decided to let him go, to focus on her future and on moving forward, leaving the past in the past, she’s never actually told Mark this. She’s simply stopped responding to his letters…
Letters of Love is well written and a pleasure to read. The love scenes are not graphically depicted so I believe that this series is suitable for young adults. I like the fact that Alex is an imperfect heroine. She makes mistakes and gets caught up in her emotions as so many of us do, especially when we’re young. This story is an honest portrayal of one young woman’s experiences as she leaves home for the first time, taking the first steps into adulthood, stumbling more than once along the way.
Letters of Love, the second book in the series, is a mesmerizing story riddled with emotion and drama that draws the reader deliciously into its romantic web!
I loved the first book in this series so much that I was ecstatic to be gifted a copy of this one by the author. I felt so many emotions with this book, but couldn't put it down until I finished it. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
