Geld, Glamour, Luxus, Macht – all das könnte Ruby Bell nicht weniger interessieren. Das Einzige, was sie sich wünscht, ist ein erfolgreicher Abschluss vom Maxton Hall College, eine der teuersten Privatschulen Englands. Vor allem mit James Beaufort, dem heimlichen Anführer des College, will sie nichts zu tun haben. Er ist zu arrogant, zu attraktiv und zu reich. Doch schon b ...more

I thought this was a nice start for the series. The ending did irritate me a little, but all in all the book was nice. Ruby is a relatable and sympathetic protagonist who I personally like the best of all the characters. James was a rather special person, and at the beginning of the book I must admit that I disliked him quite strongly. I felt like the change from "hate" to "love" was fairly quick. I don't even know how it happened, it just did. I recognize Mona's typing style from her previous b ...more

One day in the near future I am going to write down my thoughts on Mona Kasten's books, my general problem with NA books anf why I still continue to read them solely for their addictiveness despite disliking them so much...

.. First suprise in this year by this author. I'm not a big fan of YA genere,but James and Ruby hooked me.

4, 5 stars!

If you liked Royals series by Erin Watt, I recommend you this one. Even too much dramatic sometimes, Save Me is a very fast paced read. I enjoyed!

I wanted to give that book more than 3 stars because I really liked the beginning. A lot. But then there where scenes which just didn't make sense :(

I am dedicating this review to my good friend Beatrice! so let me tell this: I read this book in less than an afternoon, this means it wasn't that bad :) For sure it was sometimes a bumby reading as things were kind of too cliché. Also felt a little bit devided whether I could or not relate to Ruby. However this typical romance was much needed. I really liked this story in the whole, as it is depicting teenagers who are starting college etc... Ruby is really ambitious, focused and from times to ...more

I literally fell in love with all of the characters, except for mr. Beaufort ... Ugh , he`s so awful! It was my first book from Mona Kasten ever and Im everything but not disappointed. First I thought it would be a pretty basic storyline , the poor young girls that just wants to be perfect and escapes all kinds of trouble and then theres the troublemaker kind of guy, hes rich and gets her in trouble all the time but shes so bad in love that it doesnt matter to her until he does something really ...more

YASSSS ALL THE STARS! Even though the ending was so annoying and James was a dick to Ruby a lot of the time....I kinda still love him though. But I prefer and absolutely adore Ruby! She's an amazing character. I loved seeing the things from both of their perspectives because when James was acting like an asshole again and hurt Ruby, I'd get so mad and then I'd see it from his view and understand a little better (though it doesn't excuse his actions).
The other characters were just as thought out

The first book of the triology and the starting point of Ruby and James, the main protagonists of the novels. In my opinion, it is the best part of the series. I couldn't stop reading and wanted to find out how these total opposites could end up together (or not end up together). I especially liked the setting of the story. Maxton Hall fit in with my ideas of elite schools in England. It reminded me a bit of the Gossip Girl vibe of the early seasons. For me it was not so easy to identify with an ...more

I randomly found this book and it sounded quite interesting, but I did not have any expectations so I was completely blown away by how much I liked it. It's definitely not a groundbreaking piece of literature, but a really lovely book revealing layers of layers behind characters' actions and reactions and just really really loved it a lot!

I would’ve probably given this book 5 stars if it wasn’t for the ending (it’s not okay to mess with my heart like that)!
No but honestly, when I asked for angst I didn’t mean this much of it! Ughhh I don’t even know what to write except that the characters are so great and the relationship is super complex! I just love romances like these where you get this soft feeling in your heart ...

Even though it's just another teenage story, this one really got to me and I couldn't stop reading until I reached the end of book #3. The characters go really deep in their story and grow on their way, what I found really inspiring.

Did I like the MC? No not at all?
Was it realistic? lol no

A very light and brightening writing style of Mona Kasten. Also a good plot for young adults and teenager. The book reads really quickly, which I like. I already bought the second book of the trilogy.

I actually enjoyed this alot more than I thought I would. It was addicting and I think you really saw the development in the writing style compared to the previous books.
I cannot wait to read the next book and see where this story is going.
