Series: She’s With Me #1

Telling the truth is sometimes harder than keeping a secrete… 

Standing out as the new girl is hard enough, but add in Amelia Collins dangerous past, and her life depends on sneaking through a senior year unnoticed. But when she crashes into the school’s most infamous heartthrob, Aiden Parker, on her first day, she’s suddenly on everyone’s radar, and as Amelia becomes immersed in a new group of friends, keeping a low profile won’t be an option- even if it’s a necessity. Read More.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

She’s With Me follows Amelia Collins, the new girl at school running from a dangerous past who, on her first day, crashes, literally, into Aiden Parker the schools resident brooding bad boy heartthrob.

I was sceptical going into this. New Girl + Bad Boy romances aren’t usually my thing, especially because what I have read with this trope the relationships are usually quite toxic and not cool but I was greatly surprised by this.

I loved the budding relationship between Amelia and Aiden, they were sweet and most importantly healthy with good communication.

Aiden verbally snaps at Amelia when they first meet, however, it’s later revealed he had a good reason to do so and sincerely apologises for it when they become closer. Also Amelia doesn’t just stand there and take it while lusting over him. She fights back with the sass which I loved!

Although plot points and characters felt tropey at times and the writing was pretty amateur, I felt it was all pulled off well in a way that was both interesting and intriguing.

Another thing I loved about this was Amelia’s new found friend group. Their friendships all felt so sincere and true which is impressive considering there were a lot of characters.

Overall this book wasn’t perfect by any means but I had fun! A true testament to how good of a time I had while reading this is that I ditched Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo to read this.

I feel like if you want a “trashy” novel, I mean that in the best possibly way, just to pass the time this could be perfect. It ended on quite a cliff-hanger and I think I’m just about invested enough to continue on with this series.
