All I've Never Wanted

Release Date: 06/15/15
The Scions were the four richest, most powerful guys at Valesca Academy, and they ruled the school with iron fists. Everyone wanted to date them or be them...everyone, that is, except Maya Lindberg, who just wanted to avoid them until she could graduate. She almost succeeded, until an ill-advised outburst on her part put her right in the Scions' path. Just like that, one became her fake boyfriend, one her unwanted matchmaker, one her guardian angel, and the one she couldn't stand the most? Yeah, he's her new housemate. A Young Adult romantic comedy that explores what happens when a girl gets everything she never asked for, including a puppy, a new wardrobe, and, possibly, even true love.

“Why you get ride from strange boys?” My grandmother glared at my mom. “This how you raise daughter?”
My mom just looked bewildered. She obviously had no idea what was going on. Actually,
neither did I.
“No, he’s not a strange boy!” I was desperate to make this stop. “He’s—uh...“ Suddenly, I had a lightbulb moment. “He’s my boyfriend!”
My mom, grandmother, and Parker all whipped their heads around to stare at me in shock. They spoke at the same time.
“I am?” I smiled sweetly and reached out to grab Parker’s hand, squeezing it tighter than normal. “Yes. This is Parker. He was the boyfriend I told you about.”
Lissa's Review - 5 Stars
This book was so hilarious, I was laughing through most of it.
You meet Maya, she goes to a private high profile school on a Scholarship. She's doing her best to get through senior year, without anyone noticing her. She has her best friend Venice and that's all she needs. Until, one night she has a run in with the Scions.
The Scions are rich group of friends. Roman, Parker, Zack, Carlo, and Adriana. Now, Adri really wants Roman to get a girlfriend. He's kinda want the super tough, I can get whatever women I want. They just drop like flys in my presence. He doesn't believe there's any girl that would be a match for him.
Starting out, I was like oh geez it's going to be a She's All That/Mean Girls but I was so wrong. It was great! I couldn't stop reading. I had to go to bed though, even though I only had an hour left to go!
The dialogue was so fantastic and you couldn't help but love Maya and especially her grandmother. Hilarious!
There was a cool twist in this story. I think I fell in love with all the characters. I can't wait to read more from Anna. Even though, I got this copy for review. I had to buy it myself!!
