Dating isn’t easy when you’re in the middle of a blood feud.Anastasia Vila’s family can turn into swans, but just once she’d like them to turn into responsible adults. After hundreds of years, they still cling to the blood feud with the Renard family. No one remembers how it started in the first place—but foxes and swans just don’t get along. Vilas can only transform into their swan shape after they have fallen in love for the first time, but between balancing schoolwork, family obligations, and the escalating blood feud, Ana’s got no time for love. The only thing keeping her sane is her best friend, Pierce Kent. But when Pierce kisses Ana, everything changes. Is what Pierce feels for her real, or a byproduct of her magic? Can she risk everything for her best friend? And when the family feud spirals out of control, Ana must stop the fight before it takes away everything she loves. Including, maybe...Pierce. This Entangled Teen Crave book contains language, violence, and lots of kissing. Warning: it might induce strong feelings of undeniable attraction for your best friend.
"The ending left me feeling the same way that Red did - anticipating more but satisfied. I don't know if there are going to be other books but this story is just so interesting and fun so I definitely recommend it!" - Extreme Obsessed

Blending the mythology of The Swan Maiden folktales with blood feuds, including but not limited to Romeo & Juliet, I really loved this short novel with distinct fantasy and magical elements. Ana (short for Anastasia) Vila is someone who carries the magic of the swan within her. Unlike her aun... ...more
This was interesting and something that reminded me a lot of Romeo and Juliet, if only for the whole feud thing. The whole two people falling in love with each other but their families are enemies didn't happen here so I was glad that the author decided not to go that route since it's been overus... ...more
I loved this newest Alyxandra Harvey book! It was very much the style of her other creative books. The book was a mashup of Romeo and Juliet with The Swan Princess. The romance was so sweet throughout the plot. I loved the richly imagined setting of this story. The way of the swans and the charac... ...more

I received this book from Entangled for an honest review:
Love Me, Love Me Not is a teen love story with a Romeo and Juliet twist to it. Instead of the traditional Romeo and Juliet though it is with Vilas (swans) and Renards (Foxes). and like Romeo and Juliet there is a blood feud but THAT is wher... ...more
Love me, Love Me Not

First I want to thank Netgalley and the publisher in letting me read this. So I have to admit I was surprised by this one, I requested it, and then started to doubt. I mean it was an interesting premise, swans vs foxes.... ...more
With it's fairy tale influence and Shakespeare setting, Love Me Love Me Not is a charming re-imagining of The Swan Maiden crossed with Romeo and Juliet.

I absolutely adored the Drake Chronicles and REALLY hope that we get some Vila spin-offs from this first novel as there's tons of cousins.
Ana is a swan maiden. She only gets her wings when she finds love; however, she's pretty awkward toward her crush, Edward. Her best friend, Pierce, silently ha... ...more

This book was definitely a fun and quick read. I though Harvey did a great job at taking an old tale and putting her own modern twist on it.
I really liked the main character, Ana. I thought she was a strong and caring person. She was a little oblivious when it came to the romance de... ...more
I've never read anything about swan shifters though I've heard of the folktales, so that part really intrigued me. This was a cute story about Ana and her family of swans. They only turn into a swan if they fall in love so this is largely a romance story as well. There is also a family fe... ...more
I thought that this story was very unique in the way that Alyxandra Harvey used names for the characters and referenced it to Mythology and included some of Shakespeare type blood feuds. Very interesting in the way that she does this. I thought that it made for a very interesting read and I am gl... ...more
Love Me, Love Me Not has a gorgeous cover. I'd love to have this one on my shelf. So pretty!
Beyond that, this is a pretty solid YA read. I love the worldbuilding around the swan and fox shifters. There's a satisfying sense of history between these two feuding groups, with layers of tradition buil... ...more

Love M, Love Me Not. By Alyxandra Harvey was a really interesting story. This is the first time reading this author. I will start off I really care to read about shape shifters, just not my genre. I was really surprised that I loved this sweet but interesting story. Anastasia (Ana) Vila needs to... ...more
The first thought I had when I started Love Me Love Me Not was I’m going to enjoy this. There’s that feeling, you know the one – where you start reading a book and you just know it’s going to be good but you don’t really know why. That’s the feeling I had when I began reading Love Me Love Me Not.... ...more
Love Me, Love Me Not is such a lovely story. I’ve always loved swan girl stories and this was no exception. Ana and Pierce have known each other since they were young but Ana wants so badly to keep her friend in her life that she doesn’t see Pierce for anything other than that. Her family of swan... ...more
