  • Hugin
    This book, in fact the entire series so far, is fucked up beyond repair. So fucked up that I can't stop reading it.At the end of book four I was like WTF?! YEAH, get it on! - POLYGAMY!Now, seriously: What is wrong with all the people that have given these books ratings above 4 points? There is so much wrong with what I've read, I don't even know where to begin.Well, let me try:-> The grammar - HELP! I'm slowly lOOsing the ability to write properl...

    I know I already said it but I'm addicted to this series and it keeps getting better !North and Mr Blackbourne, you stole the show on this one ! Not that I'm complaining, not at all ...(view spoiler)[Book boyfriends are awesome and yes it's okay to have 9 in the same series ! (hide spoiler)]

    I had enjoyed the first two books in The Academy series. I was a little put off in book three with the strange personal relationships Sang was beginning to have with all of the boys and Mr. Blackbourne. I was also having a hard time relating to Sang in book three because she was so weak and scared one minute and then the next minute she is out defending boys that can clearly take care of themselves. Her lack of backbone started to drive me crazy....

    It is rare to find a book, let alone a series, that I want to reread. With so many stories out there waiting to be experienced, the idea of devoting extra time to just sitting back and re-enjoy something I've already read seems like a waste of precious time. My list of to-be-read is longer than I will ever come close to completing.With Sang's story, I find myself breaking that rule. I want to see these characters, these relationships, blossom all...

    Full review to come soon. I have a lot of mixed emotions on this one, but I still can't stop reading. I NEED to know what happens. What a preview to leave behind! AHHHHH!Full Review (no spoilers):Okay, so it's no secret that I am totally obsessed with this series. Every time a new book releases I devour it in a day and then pine over the next one until it comes out. I don't know how C.L. Stone does it, but she has totally forced me to completely ...
  • carinne
    I love love love this series. Seriously I turned the last page last night, and I was like, Somethings wrong, there is no way that I read the book that fast." Then I wanted to cry because it was over. I also promised my self I couldn't move on to the next book yet because when I read these things, I forget there is a world out there and you know I need to work and stuff so I Can buy more books.So lets actually talk about this little gem. First of ...

    Yup, I am a giant masochist It is final as evident with my continued reading of garbage. I will not bother for with a proper review of this....You ask me if anything happened since last book.. NO! NOTHING HAPPENS... I swear the h wipes her ass and the author will write a litany of chapters about how amazing she is..
  • Stephanie
    I'm having a major book hang over. Waiting 3 months for the next book is going to be pure torture. I've already read the first 3 books 5 times each. I'm going to have to do the same with this one to help stave off my with draws.
  • Praiz Sophyronja
    9 GUYS.9 DIFFERENT LOVE INTERESTS. AT ONCE. WHAT THE FUCK?? I'm seriously questioning my sanity right now!!Because, I'm totally rooting for Sang and her 9 men to be still together??And the thing is, there isn't one I like more than the others, I seriously think all the guys are equally as incredible as others...This is so damn unrealistic, I MEAN COME THE FUCK ON?? 9 GUYS??? WHAAAT*Mindblown*
  • Lisa @ 2bookaholics
    Let me start off by saying I am 100 percent addicted to this series. I want to go all fan girl on CL and give her a big hug and kiss on the cheek for giving me something so different from the norm. These books are different. The direction they are heading is different and even though I wasn't so sure about it she's given me a reason to want to follow it through. In this book Sang and her sister are on there own, crazy mom is in a hospital and th...
  • Jennifer
    Oh crap! C.L went there! I was wondering if Sang would fall for one, but over the series of books it looks like she falls for them all. Are we going down the road of polygamy? It sure looks like it, and I think that is just so awesome! Usually, it's one guy and a bunch of women, I love that it's one girl and a group of guys! Woot about time! Woman power! hahaI loved that we learned more in the story, things unraveled a bit. I totally loved that S...
  • Melissa
    AHHHH YESSSS.(Sliiiiightly addicted to these. SORRY I'M NOT SORRY.)Not gonna spoiler it,, I love North. He's such a mess. Also, DAT ENDING. If you don't find yourself going "oh man, I hoped she was gonna do that" are you reading this for? I mean, really. ;)
  • Margaret
    Loved it! Please don't make me wait til Jan of 14 , please, please, please! I absolutely am on board with the bird being with all of the dogs!!! I was leaning more towards Mr. Blackbourne as her love interest, but when I read that...I got ..well...excited by the concept! Love this series, just don't think I'll make it til Jan! And just for the record I am in love with all of them...ALL of them!
  • Siv Therese
    To come so far I guess you've read book 1 and 2 and 3 and were as me, just about as crazy as you can become to read book4! Waiting and waiting and waaaaiting... just thinking about the book, imagening different outcomes, and reading the other books again and again. And when book 4 finally were released, you bought it the second it was awailable? I sure did! Is it as good as the others? YES!Are there still secrets, intrigues, action, laugh out lou...
  • Pao
    To be completely honest, I'm a little bit shocked with THAT END!, perhaps I'm too naive and I didn't considered that THAT would be the 'solution' to the reverse harem situation *feels dumb*. Not that I don't approve it, I've already stated that I couldn't/wanted to pick just one, but seriously, C.L. Stone you have surprised me once again. HUGE surprise.I've realized I write almost the same things in my reviews about these books but it's only the ...
  • Danielle
    This book is amazing. I am officially OBSESSED! I finished the book, and immediately started rereading it. I can't get enough! I honestly can't wait until the next one comes out. January can't get here quick enough! I love all of the boys, (Kota being my favorite) and I love how you learn a little bit more about their background throughout each book. The character development is amazing, without it these books would not be anywhere as perfect as ...
  • Laura
    If the rest of this series continues down the path that this one appears to be heading down then THAT IS HOW MORE BOOKS SHOULD DEAL WITH LOVE TRIANGLES/QUEADRANGLES/PENTAGONS! ;P Heeheehee
  • Lucy at Rain and Cupcakes Book Blog
    Oh my, that ending.....!!!!!!! Must.Read.The.Next.Book.NOW!!
  • Claire (bookscoffeeandrepeat)
    It's been confirmed. I'm a masochist for even trying to finish reading this book. There were moments when I wanted to stop but I had to know what happens to my favorite characters! I deeply dislike the protagonist though. Idk what a majority of guys in the series sees in her because there's nothing remarkable about her except her surprising abilities. Besides that, I really don't see any reason for them to be attracted to her. Heck, even the wait...
  • Nikki
    Sweet lord above I haTE THIS. This book took me so long to read compared to others because it was so gratingly unbelievable. Okay, I get that all the books are pretty unrealistic, but this one was so horrifically stupid I can't even ????? I have a few serious issues with this book that I feel compelled to air. Firstly, how many times do I need to read that "Sang feels uncomfortable with Mr Blackbourne touching her, because she's used to the other...
  • Paula Phillips
    Before writing this review, I do have to admit that I have enjoyed this series to date and am enjoying it and want to see what happens but for some reason Forgiveness and Permission drove me freaking cray-cray, and I wanted to scream at this book and to be honest, I think there was a bit of shaking the Ipad as well . Parts of this one just frustrated the hell out of me. So to catch up, Sang's mother is now in the hospital, and her father has run ...
  • Mim
    Overall, we don't see a whole lot of development in Sang's character since the first book (fragile, insecure and naiive at times) - except perhaps towards the end when she starts to show more courage and independence. She still doesn't quite know what to make of all the attention and flirtations by the Academy boys - as if she were the queen bee. More frustrating are the internal dialogues: "Did Nathan biting my fingers mean something?" "What hap...
  • Arianna
    E' una storia che a tratti trovo veramente troppo lenta, ma almeno ho capito perchè non ruscivo a scegliere fra i bei nove... non ci riesce neanche Sang! Wicked, wicked author... Ora, se solo ci muovessimo un po' in avanti con la trama... non possiamo mettere il fast forward? Perchè già SO che a gennaio sarà la stessa solfa... tensione sessuale e niente passi in avanti... Non è stata la stessa autrice a dire che passeranno LIBRI prima del pr...
  • Cornelia
    Ending the book left me crying.Not because it was sad, but because it was over. Every time I thought about the book being over soon while still reading it, I almost started crying. It is so good, I never wanted it to be over.I cannot wait for book 5. Proper review later.
  • Regina
    Is it January yet???? Review and alternate cast up on the blog soon!

    El cuarto libro de la saga The Academy de C.L.Stone nos sumerge en un torbellino de emociones y problemas que le surgen a la protagonista, Sang.El instituto no es menos para ella. El director la quiere utilizar de espía para poder deshacerse de los chicos de la Academia y la intenta chantajear. El vice-director también tiene sus propias intenciones para con ella, y no tienen buena pinta. Así que tendrá que hacer malabares para int...
  • Brittain *The Baddest Female*
    Book 4 y'all...This has to be the slowest burn series ever. I realize that in reality, she has known these guys for a few months at best and a damaged girl with trust issues would probably still be scared of contact and rejection but I'm still craving more.So much happened in this book and I love it. There was wonderful tension. I love it when characters get mad at each other and it was a beautiful knock down drag out. Emotions felt real. Lonelin...
  • Julia Hargrove
    Another fantastic read by C.L. Stone.In this particular installment of the series, we finally start to see Sang coming into her own, while simultaneously being just as uncertain as ever. We're beginning to see a bit of fire spark in her, despite years of her mother's abuse, with the absence of her parents. We also see a behavior that is confusing, but realistic. While she seems incredibly co-dependent on the boys emotionally, she is somehow also ...
