Description

A bold, feminist campus novel about a woman who enrolls in grad school and competes her way into an elite cohort to get revenge on the popular professor who wronged her sister

Most students would kill to be accepted into the prestigious Law and Literature cohort at Franklin University. But for Jessie Mooney, enrollment in the course is about more than elite campus status, rigorous thought, and professional connections. It’s her chance to get close to charismatic professor Jay Crane—and take him down.

From the moment she discovered their secret relationship, Jessie's been convinced Crane is to blame for the events leading to her sister’s death. Still haunted by their last email exchange—You know what you did—she'll cross any line to hold him accountable. But when Jessie finally earns Crane’s trust and the coveted position as one of his “favorites,” attracting the other students’ envy and suspicion, the truth becomes darkly twisted. Is it justice Jessie craves, or revenge? And what does she stand to lose if she gets her way?

Shimmering with tension, this provocative novel explores the nature of obsession, the inequities of power, and the ways that anger, desire, and love reveal the best, and worst, of us.

I devoured this book. I was immediately and completely pulled in by Jessie’s voice and found myself furiously flipping the pages. This book questions what justice means, who gets to carry it out, and what one might gain or lose in the process. It’s provocative, heartbreaking, and deliciously addictive. I could not put it down!

Thank you to NetGalley, Harlequin Trade Publishing, and Graydon House for the e-arc in exchange for an honest review.

WOW!

If this isn't a book to brag about I don't know what is...

I started The Favorites late last night. Never did I anticipate I would be closing the book at 3am left in complete shock. There was no way I would be sleeping, my adrenaline was speeding. I got up and folded clothes, yes at 3am. I needed time to myself to grapple with what I had just read.

This book was insane! It was twisted, it was heartbreaking but it was so darn good!

The Favorites is a must read, out November 14, 2023, I strongly encourage you to pre-order this book!
