Series: St. Mary’s Academy #4
A RICH GIRL WITH RULES. A POOR BOY WITH A CRUSH. AND A BLANK CHECK THAT WILL CHANGE THEIR LIVES FOREVER.
Sixteen-year-old Alex Wells has been in and out of foster homes since he was five years old. Without much money and with no parents, he’s used his smarts to secure an academic scholarship at the prestigious St. Mary’s Academy. When beautiful and down to earth Cassia Johnstone walks into his math class, Alex knows she’s the one for him.
Alex dreams of Cassia being his date for junior prom. There are only two problems. First, unlike him, she’s filthy rich. And second, she’s into someone else.
But, when a mysterious bag of money falls into Alex’s lap, he comes up with the mother of all plans. One filled with romance, intrigue, and just a little bit of danger.
Can Alex capture Cassia’s attention and convince her to be his date for junior prom, or will his big plan blow up in his face and devastate everyone around him?
Full of unexpected twists and shocking revelations, this is the fourth book in Seven Steps’ compelling St. Mary’s Academy series.
St. Mary’s Academy is a young adult contemporary romance series that brings classic fairytale characters to life in a modern day, high school setting. It’s filled with angsty heroines, hot heroes, and drama galore.
Be prepared. You’ve never seen fairytales quite like this.

Yet again, another cute story!
enjoyed this shorter novel to this series! My favorite part about this book was definitely the ending because it was super cute and I love what Alex did! I really enjoyed reading this series and I’m sad to see it go but happy that I got to read it! I read this book last in the series because I wanted to read all the main books first since they kind of followed each other but if you decide to read this series, reading it in order is fine too! The books in this series always had something crazy going on in the middle of it but also had a strong meaning of family and close friends which I really liked. One thing I appreciated about this book was the brother and sister relationship between Alex and Lindsey. They had such a close bond and such a good relationship.
