It isn't easy to focus on a love life when there's a blood feud going on. The Vilas and the Renards have been fighting each other for centuries, but recently the attacks have increased. The Renards are foxes and there's a pact to keep the peace, but nobody really sticks to it. The attacks are getting more violent and Ana thinks this isn't just because of their usual conflict, but it's quite hard to make people listen, especially not when they hate each other. When Pierce becomes involved Ana suddenly has her clarity. Will she be able to get her family and best friend out of the mess with the Renards?
Love Me, Love Me Not is a great story about a girl who can turn into a swan. Ana has magic and she has her family's special abilities, but there are things that don't come natural to her. That makes her insecure about her love life and her abilities. She thinks she might never get her wings. She's unbelievably strong and she's a good fighter. She's also smart and loyal. She and Pierce are such a sweet couple, but they're just friends and Ana thinks she might never find love. Pierce always has her back though and he knows all of her secrets and keeps them. They're wonderful together.
Sometimes I felt like the story could have flowed a bit better, but because I loved the idea of swans and foxes so much I didn't really mind. I also enjoyed reading about the different families. There are three main families and two of them are large, which means there are a lot of characters, but the story never gets confusing. The swan magic is intriguing, there's a lot of action and the romance is cute. All in all I think this is a good read. I like Alyxandra Harvey's ideas and the world she's created very much.
Love Me, Love Me Not is an enchanting romance that reads like a fairytale. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped right into a magical Disney story. That fluttery, giddiness that comes with stumbling upon something out of this world is there in full force. Think Practical Magic when the jump off the rooftop at the end. THAT feeling.
The concept is fantastic. It’s a play on Romeo and Juliet with a fairytale twist and tons of swoons. The Vila’s are amazing. From their haunting songs and playful ballads that can call up the winds to their fierce bows and arrows, they’re quirky and powerful. Their parkour training and self-defense skills make them all sorts of empowered. Each Vila has a unique voice and personality-from the crazies to the promiscuous ones, they’re memorable.
The story is fueled by love. In order to become a swan, the Vila girls must fall in love to earn their wings. Romance is everything to them and it’s through falling in love that they find themselves and truly understand what it means to be a swan.
Swoon. Sigh. Swoon. Seriously. Smells like books and coffee? Um…is there anything sexier than that? On top of that Pierce is loyal, compassionate, playful, and always there for Ana. Their friendship is strong and feels oh so right. Their wish tree. That’s probably one of the coolest and most romantic things I’ve read in a long time.
There’s some assault violence that is pretty terrifying. The feud between the foxes and swans is crazy intense. The bruises and bloodshed, the taunts, stealing special tokens, pulling pranks, it all adds up to a deadly battle of whims fueled by hundreds of years of hatred.
Twists and turns that will keep you guessing. The clues are subtle.
Gosh, where do I even begin? She’s adorably flustered and clumsy at times, her moments of trying to speak to her crush and failing miserably are not only something anyone can identify with but will make you die laughing. She’s open-minded, independent, and fights for what she believes in. And of course, she’s blind to what’s right in front of her but you can’t blame a girl for being scared to take the leap from friends to more.
There wasn’t enough kissing. No. Seriously. For a romance there wasn’t enough build up but the kisses that were there…you’ll feel like you’re floating. Total out-of-your-mind, butterflies.
The villain felt randomly inserted, well, the main villain. The clues were so sparse that when the reveal happened, yes, it was shocking but you also had to scramble to figure out why. There wasn’t enough to lead you to that conclusion.
This was an entertaining read, with lots of twists and interesting ideas, however, I found myself not completely engaged in the story.
We have Ana, descending from a family who can turn into swans when they fall in love. Well, Ana is desperately trying to fall in love, and in that process she doesn’t see the one guy she could love and loves her back.
In all this trying to find love, she also had to try to keep up with school, as well as a new almost-war with the swans enemies: the foxes. There was also a mystery as to who was behind the kidnappings of swans and I really never saw that coming, lol.
The thing was, I found Ana a bit all over the place. I mean, there was the finding out who was trying to hurt them and then there was school, and trying to date this guy she loved. She didn’t know where to focus, which made me not sure where to look. Shouldn’t her focus be on the mystery? Instead she was thinking how cute Edward was. Um… what? I also didn’t like her family at all, they came off as selfish and mean to each other. I ended up skimming in a lot of parts.
There were some fun moments and all, just not enough for me to really LOVE this one.
