Being a huge Pride and Prejudice fan, I was looking forward to reading The Admirer. I think it was a refreshing story to remind us that we don't always have to have lots of sex and angst in a story. I enjoyed it, and believe Ms. Osbourne's debut should do very well.

**** Very Bad Things ****
I just finished this book and I really love it. The characters were deep and quirky. I gave it a four and not a five because of the mush factor. I still really loved the book and Madden - Mills is a kick-ass writer. You need to check out Very Bad Things.
Born into a life of privilege and secrets, Nora Blakely has everything any nineteen-year-old girl could desire. She's an accomplished pianist, a Texas beauty queen, and on her way to Princeton after high school. She's perfect. Or is she?
Leaving behind her million-dollar mansion and Jimmy Choos, she changes the course of her life, becoming a girl hell-bent on pushing the limits with alcohol, drugs, and meaningless sex.
Then through a chance encounter, she meets her soulmate. But he doesn't want her.
When it comes to girls, twenty-five-year-old Leo Tate has one rule: never fall in love. His gym and his brother are all he cares about...until he meets Nora. He resists the pull of their attraction, hung up on their six year age difference.
As they struggle to stay away from each other, secrets will be revealed, tempers will flare, and hearts will be broken.
Welcome to Briarcrest Academy...where sometimes, the best things in life are Very Bad Things.
