[Review] All I've Never Wanted by Ana Huang



 
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.

What happens when a girl gets everything she never asked for, including a puppy, a new wardrobe, and, possibly, even true love?

 
**Received in exchange for an honest review**
I managed 7% on the 1st night and on the 2nd I decided to have an early night and read for an hour, (this was around 9pm.) Next thing I know it's 1am and I'm 49% in. Literally didn't want to put it down.
This is my first by Ana Huang and in the back of my mind I didn't think I'd like this book, but I actually do so far.
While writing this post though I looked (shame on me) at the reviews and noticed ALOT of people said that this book was a take on a Japaneses/South Korean series The Manga/Boys Over Flowers.
It does put a dampener on the book for me, knowing that it's not original from Ana. However I want to watch Boys Over Flowers now!
Okay, the story so far... Maya goes to Valesca, a prestigious school run by 4 students (not originally, their families founded it). These guys (and gal) are the richest of the rich.
Typically the girls have their tongues out over them.
Their entrance in to the school had me rolling my eyes because it was far too movie-ish to be believed in real life.
Up until a party, Maya has stayed out their radar but after butting in to an argument and telling the king Scion, (Roman) what she thinks. She's bullied, kidnapped and then accepted in to their group.

Her grandmother makes me howl though! literally laughed in to the early hours!
The guys confuse me (I'm just getting used to their traits).
I'm convinced Zack is gay.
And at 49% I think we're just hitting turning points. I think theirs a coincidence between Maya's Grecian suite and her Greek inspired dress for homecoming... Just saying. That suite is in Romans house too...

Update
I was WRONG! nothing happened other than Roman being an ass!
Those two, (Roman & Maya) need their heads banging together. Their 'attraction' heats up more and more with more and more issues arrising. 
Romances start appearing out of every nook and cranny as do real outbursts of laughter from me.
I literally couldn't put this book down. I wanted it to end so the story was closed but then I wanted to read it forever.
The only thing stopping this from getting 5 lattes is the fact it's not as original as I first thought!
It's a good read... like, really good.
