Welcome to my tour stop for 
LOVE ME, LOVE ME NOT by Alyxandra Harvey

Title: Love Me, Love Me Not
Author: Alyxandra Harvey
Publication Date: February 22, 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Dating isn’t easy when you’re in the middle of a blood feud.
Anastasia Vila’s family can turn into swans, but just once she’d like them to turn into responsible adults.
After hundreds of years, they still cling to the blood feud with the Renard family. No one remembers how it started in the first place—but foxes and swans just don’t get along.
Vilas can only transform into their swan shape after they have fallen in love for the first time, but between balancing schoolwork, family obligations, and the escalating blood feud, Ana’s got no time for love. The only thing keeping her sane is her best friend, Pierce Kent.
But when Pierce kisses Ana, everything changes.
Is what Pierce feels for her real, or a byproduct of her magic? Can she risk everything for her best friend? And when the family feud spirals out of control, Ana must stop the fight before it takes away everything she loves.
Including, maybe...Pierce.

This Entangled Teen Crave book contains language, violence, and lots of kissing. Warning: it might induce strong feelings of undeniable attraction for your best friend.

** I received an ARC copy in exchange to an honest review **
As you may know —or not—, lately, I’ve read a lot of new authors, and Alyxandra Harvey was not the exception; LOVE ME, LOVE ME NOT is my first read for an Alyxandra’s book —she has others, of course— and I wanted to read this book since the day I saw the cover, then I read the synopsis and I just wanted to read it more; I made the right choice, because I don’t think I’ve read something like this before —I read fantasy, but this book is something else. Fantasy is not my common genre, so I had to stop a few times to search some words or something, due to there was new vocabulary —English is not my first language, so, yep, it wasn’t a non-stop read.

Anyway, LMLMN is a book about swans —no any swans, girls who can turn into swans —omg, first time I’ve read about girls changing into swans! However, for them to become swans they have to… FALL IN LOVE —for the first time, or true love, not something forced.

“Anastasia Vila’s family can turn into swans, but just once she’d like them to turn into responsible adults.”

Ana’s family has a mystic history, BUT, she’s not like the other women in her family —she wants to be successful and have good studies, of course she wants fall in love and have her wings— but there’s the problem, between her strict, traditionalist family and her studies, she doesn’t have enough time to go out in a date.

Pierce is Ana’s best friend, and who keeps her sane. He’s… sweet, lovely, adorable, a good big brother, and so on! The moments when I had the chance to read in his POV was fantastic —I wanted more. For quite some time, Pierce has realized that his feelings for Ana are not just friendlies, but she doesn’t feel the same —what a shame.

“No one remembers how it started in the first place—but foxes and swans just don’t get along.”

Ana’s swan family has always had an enemy —foxes, or Renard clan. They’ve been in an eternal war —at first, I thought Pierce was one of the Renard family, but not, for a little moment that kind of disappointed me, but I got over it easily. In general, there were many characters, all them different from each other, sometimes it made a little more enjoyable my reading —by the way, she has a big family!

All in all, I liked, and enjoyed reading it, a really good book from cover to cover —even when I had to stop a few times. Also, I think it’s an only one book —or at least for Pierce and Ana’s story. Anyway, I want more of this crazy family, maybe about one of Ana’s cousins —or a book for someone in the Renard’s family, actually, it would be great, because we would know more of their story in all this foxes vs swans’ endless war. 

A book with a lot of magic, for those who love fantasy, it a good opportunity to read something new —and there are a few aspects that remind of Romeo and Juliet, so, for those who like romance, and not just the normal best friend love thing —give it a chance!

Alyxandra Harvey lives in a stone Victorian house in Ontario, Canada with a few resident ghosts who are allowed to stay as long as they keep company manners. She loves medieval dresses, used to be able to recite all of The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, and has been accused, more than once, of being born in the wrong century. She believes this to be mostly true except for the fact that she really likes running water, women’s rights, and ice cream. Aside from the ghosts, she also lives with her husband and their dogs. She likes cinnamon lattes, tattoos and books.

$200 Amazon Gift Card + Feather Pendant Necklace inspired by the one that Ana, from Love Me, Love Me Not wears.
