The story

Dive into the fabulous, fun lives of six Academy girls as their friendships are tested, torn and ultimately triumph… It's Emma's time in the fifth installment in the Jane Austen Academy series! She always tries to make her friends happy and find the one for them but maybe it's time for Emma to find happiness...

The characters

Our main heroine is Emma. She's beautiful, popular and rich. Someone would think that she'd be a snob who thinks everyone else is way below her and that she's too good for them. But the truth is Emma is just like every other teenage girl. She's sensitive, has her doubts about herslef, has friends who accept her for who she is and she has a good heart. She's always trying to set her friends up and so far she's been pretty successful at it.

Now her genius plan is to cure Anne's broken heart by setting her up with super hot famous actor Josh. Alongside them, she invites her best friend Knight who accidentally invites Anne's ex Rick to spend a weekend at Emma's luxurious house with an breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean.

She does everything she can to bring those two together, from surprising them with extravagant dinners to encouraging them to participate in the local shelter's adoption event but nothing seems to work because the heart wants what the heart wants...

Even if Emma helps her friends find true love, she doesn't believe in it. She couldn't even imagine herself being in love. But she can't stop feeling jealous that Knight chooses to spend more time with Anne than herself. She knows that it's going to be a heartbreaking decision but for Anne's sake, she's willing to let him go... Is that what Knight wants as well?


Only With You is a fun,sweet and fresh retelling of the Jane Austen classics. Every book in the series can be read as a standalone but I plan on reading the entire series!The perfect series to accompany you during summer!

Rating: 4 stars!!


Cecilia Gray lives in the San Francisco Bay Area where she reads, writes and breaks for food. She also pens her biographies in the third person. Like this. As if to trick you into thinking someone else wrote it because she is important. Alas, this is not the case.

She’s rather enamored of being contacted by readers and hopes you’ll oblige.

A book giveaway of the author's choice to the winner based on her perusal of their Goodreads shelf (because just like her heroine, Emma, she think she know what's best for everyone. ;) - we thought this would be fun and relates to the MC's personality.
