This is the second of my Tales from Aintree Court series. The idea that teenage boy meets teenage girl, they only have eyes for each other and they live happily ever after is certainly romantic. But how realistic is it? This story is about the messy and complicated predicament of being attracted to someone while being in a relationship with someone else and examines all the emotions that result (temptation to cross the line, frustration, jealousy, passion etc

Two versions of the same song is a story told from two persectives. It is about a guy (Paul) torn between his love for his girlfriend and his attraction for his cousin's friend,Serena. Serena is also crazy about Paul and is pining for him. They both try to deal with the situation by staying away from each other but inevitably they are brought together. They decide to become 'friends' but find it hard to deal with the attraction, the frustration and unresolved sexual tension between them. The who ...more

I literally finished reading this book about 5 minutes ago. I was given this book to read and give and honest review so here goes. I am really critical when I start reading books, and once again I did the same with this one. However, once I past chapter 3 I was hooked. Without giving anything anyway, the author sucks you in a way that you are left wanting to know more after the end of each chapter. This is the story of how to young people fall in love in the midst of young adult drama. It is fil ...more

Firstly i would like to say thankyou to Susan Francis for giving me the honor of reading an reviewing her second book of the Aintree Tales.

I loved Butterfly Porcupine and i really enjoyed this one just as much. This is written in Past and Present, and also in two POV Paul who is torn between his feelings for his girlfriend and Sarena, and the Pov of Serena. The relationship between Paul and Serena is not easy, sometimes they had like a love hate thing going on.

Transition between past and present

This is the second of the Aintree Tales series. I loved Butterfly porcupine but I loved Two version of the same song even more. The male protagonist, Paul Adams, is such a sweet guy! He tries his best to do right by these two girls that he has feelings for. Serena is a strong and intelligent character that I admired. I can't wait for book 3.

I was given a free copy in exchange of an honest review for the Never To Old For YA Books group.

I really liked this book. The story was good, intriguing and interesting.
But there were a few things that I didn't like much. Like the story keeping going back in time and then in the present again so many times that my head was spinning. It got me confused and a little lost. Forgetting where I was at, before the story went back in the past. I also found too many details I didn't really need. Especial

I received an ARC of this book and read it in November last year. Yes it has taken me this long to write my review! Sorry Susan - and thanks for reminding me ;)

Since reading it I have checked out what others thought of it since it is not a typical YA novel and I wondered what sort of reaction it got. It has had mixed reviews and almost everyone complained about the layout. The story starts in the present and Serena, the female character, tells us what is happening at that point in time. After a

First, I want to say thank you to Susan for providing me a free copy after I fell in love with Butterfly Porcupine. I just couldn't wait to read the follow-up story in the Aintree Tales series. Now I can't wait to see what is to come.

Serena was such a strong female and I really related to her. She knew the boundaries and didn't overstep them with Paul. She easily could have taken things too far with Paul, but she knew he was in a relationship and chose to respect that. That is comendable. I enjo
First of all I want to thank the author Susan Francis for providing me with an ARC ecopy of the book in exchange for my review and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading the new instalment of the Aintree Tales.

Two Versions of the Same Song is not a continuation of Butterfly Porcupine but in fact a story on it's on going on at the same time as Butterfly Porcupine and features both Serena and Paul. The story is told in both their POV's and is set in both the past and present. This format
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.. And I'm very glad I did.

This book is about a boy and a girl, both of whom long for each other, but deny their feelings due to various reasons and despite the ever-growing tension (sexual and otherwise) between them.

When I first began this book, I was unsure whether or not I liked the writing style and I was rather thrown with all the information hurled at you the first few chapters. However, I stuck with it and my opinion rapidly

I really, really struggled.
If this had not been a R4R book that I was obligated to finish, I'm not sure I would've of bothered.
Opinions may vary, but for me, it felt like I was reading a wacked out biography, not a fictional story.
Some of the parts were heartfelt, but the timeline and POV's were all over the place. Some events were repeated, or the writing was before a kiss, or after a kiss, and then

Two Versions of the Same Song started off awkwardly. It was a hard one for me to review, because there were parts I loved, and parts that just didn't work for me.

I really enjoyed the characters of Serena and Paul. I felt like they really tried their best with the situation they found themselves in, and I have to give them credit because they handled a lot better than most. After the first intentional kiss, they both made sure to never let it happen again.

I felt the worst for Serena, because sh

I loved the first and the second did not disappoint. Susan Francis has an ease with words that make you feel you are a part of the story. It is hard not to get attached to certain characters and wish for certain things to happen. The story is told from the position of the male and female which made it all the better. It was so great to get more than one perspective.

This story is about being attracted to someone while being in a relationship with someone else. A love triangle that adds a struggl

I'm reminded of my teenage years and the complexity of it all. Susan Francis gives readers a tale of just that. Serena & Paul's "relationship" reminds me of how uncertain this period in our lives were and, at the same time, how very annoying as well. Both characters were wishy washy and very annoying - this is not a negative thing against the writer, I'm just trying to provide insight on the layout. As I stated at the beginning of this review, I'm just reminded of my teenage years. It took s ...more

Wow this was a great sequal to Susans first book 'Butterfly Porcupine' which follows on two other characters, Serena and Paul.

This is the kind of story that you want the two characters to get together and its one of those that is a' Will they or Won't They' get it together and of course you'll have to read the book to find out!

The course of any relationship is never easy and this relationship certainly has its fair share.

Susan's fabulous writing style continues in this book, where you get both

First of all, I wanna express my sincerest gratitude to Susan for providing me a free copy of the book. I am really happy that you responded quickly to my request. This is my first ever review and I hope you could bear me with me. :)

I actually wanted to give a 5 for the story! This is really something to which either you experienced personally or know someone who had. I enjoyed how the story was told from two perspectives. It gave me a broader idea on how the character handled each situations. I

The story follows Serena and Paul, they meet at a New Year's Eve party and there is a lot of tension between them, as the book goes on we see that the tension between Serena and Paul builds up. They are forced to team up to create a song for Paul's cousin Kai's birthday party, Serena finds out that her feelings for Paul are becoming uncontrollable but he already has a girlfriend.

I was hooked from the first page, it was so fun to read, the storyline was very well constructed and I related easily

I received this book as a read for review and would like to thank the author for the opportunity!

This book was just ok for me. It took me a while to get into it and it never really hooked me. The going back and forth between before and after was a little confusing at times. I did like that we got to see both Serena and Paul's points of view. It was slow to me and not a lot of action. If you don't like books with language from other countries than this book definitely isn't for you. For example
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This book was okay for me. I have no strong feelings either way. I did like the fact that the author made the characters multicultural instead of the same cookie cutter characters we often receive in young adult books. I also enjoyed how the author did not hold back about the drinking, smoking, etc. that goes on in teenagers lives.

I felt that the story had too many story lines going on at the same time. While I appreciate the

I received the book in order for an honest review.

The story is about a bunch of residents of Aintree. All Different lives and families but the story is about the teenagers, Mainly Ree and Paul, Will they wont they get together. I really struggled with this book. I lost interest half way through, I just didn't get the past, present about me lines. I struggled to read the remainder of the story.

There was too many plots and stories going on. I lost which one was the main plot and what the actual
