Description

Brooklyn Prescott (if that's even her real name) is the new girl at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, now that she's moved back to the States after two years living in London. Rosewood, a boarding school for children of the rich and famous and known for its celebutantes, is missing just one element important to any junior's education: boys. But luckily for Brooklyn, and the rest of the Rosewood girls, there's a boys' boarding school, The Westwood Academy, just a few miles away.

On her very first day, Brooklyn meets Will, a gorgeous and flirty boy on campus to help with move in. But is he who she thinks he is? And what about Brady, the cute stable boy? Or Jared, the former child actor with his grown-up good looks who can always make her laugh? As Brooklyn settles in at Rosewood, she's faced with new friends, new challenges and new opportunities to make herself into the girl she always wanted to be. Whoever that might be.

Taking the Reins is the first installment of The Rosewoods, an exciting new young adult series for listeners who love fun, flirty love stories.

This entertaining story kept me going ohh and ahh!

For some odd reason, when I read the synopsis of this book I thought of Gossip Girl and immediately requested a copy so that I could review it. well, the storyline certainly does not disappoint and the characters are larger than life. What made me enjoy this book even more was the narrator, Ann Marie Gideon. Her voice is soothing and I loved how she brought the characters to life for me via her voice changes. This entertaining story kept me going ohh and ahh throughout the entire listen. I look forward to more stories from Katrina Abbott and to more audio listening featuring Ms. Gideon. -YA/NA Book Divas

Great New Fun Teen/YA Series

I really enjoyed this audiobook. It was interesting and the characters likable. This is a Teen/YA Series which is one of my favorite genres. I'm young at heart!!!

The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. Her intonation was great and it was easy to differentiate between characters.

I'm looking forward to Katrina's next book in this series. This was a great start to a new series.

A great start to a fun YA series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this to friends ranging from junior high/high school to friends in their 20's. It's a fun, well written YA novel that reminded me a bit of Gossip Girl without the sex, drugs and ridiculous scandals. Everyone is kind and likable and it's a great start to the series. It's like a little bit more mature and current Sweet Valley High.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed the main character, Brooklyn the most, as she is the main character and you get to know her the best through her character development.

What does Ann Marie Gideon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ann Marie Gideon did a very good job narrating, in my opinion. She brought the characters to life with their various voices and reading the book just wouldn't have had the same affect.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This is book one in a series. It introduced a lot of the main characters and set things up for future novels, and because of this, it never really grabbed me and made me want to binge listen, but I was perfectly happy to listen to it when driving or doing the dishes, etc. So while I didn't want to listen to it all in one sitting, I would imagine that the next books in the series will move much faster.

Any additional comments?

I would absolutely recommend this novel to my age appropriate friends. It was a fun story and I enjoy the whole setting and group of students.

A cute YA Contemporary you won't want to miss

Taking the Reins is an uplifting, entertaining YA book that will surely delight the listener. Ann Marie Gideon does a great job with the "voices", emphasis, and in an effective delivery. This is a story of a YA girl who is entering a prestigious all Girl college. Her father is in a secret service assignment in London and they have lived thee for a couple of years. Brooklyn is worried about being "the new girl". She had never really "fit in" before. She is determined to be different in this new experience and do what it takes to "fit in". Her roommate is unexpected surprise. From her first experience with two guys from a nearby elitist all boy college,, to her love of horses, and her efforts to become the "new Brooklyn", she is totally unprepared for her experiences in her new school. She experiences, surprises, embarrassment frustration, and crushes. The characters are fun and endearing, the events are well portrayed The Title and Book image are okay. The only negative is, the ending was too abrupt and weak. there are assuredly more books in the series, but this had an ineffective lead in to the next book.

A great start to an elite boarding school series

We find ourselves looking at a new school for the main character. Brooklyn, an American returning from some time in England, starts a new boarding school experience. The teenage, boy mad girls, attending this all girl education institution, has their male fixes, with hunky Teachers, other facility, and other boy students at the close by all male school. A "clean" read, although childish pranks and crushes are the main subjects, as is common in this age group.

Rosewood Sisterhood

This was a great start to a new series! Brooklyn is a new student at The Rosewood Academy for the rich and famous trying to reinvent herself and is ultimately bummed that it’s an all girls school. When she finds out that The Westwood Academy, an all boys school, is a few miles down the road her hope returns and her adventure begins. I really enjoyed that the first few chapters were spent on character description so we got to know Brooklyn, her new classmates and boys from the other school, and how she was feeling at Rosewood Academy. I loved the friendship throughout the story and the adventures that they went on along with their everyday lives as teenagers. This book was filled with romance, angst, likable characters, twists and turns, and many laughable moments. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Brooklyn and her friends! Ann did a wonderful job with this narration! She really brought Brooklyn and the rest of the characters to life with her performance. I loved the different voices that she gave each character and the transition between them was flawless. *I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Rosewoods Stick Together

I really enjoyed this quick, easy to listen book. The main character, Brooklyn Prescott, moves from London to be a student at Rosewood Academy, where her roommate, Emmie is fabulously wealthy, but doesn't let it go to her head. Emmie's personality and giving nature, makes you love her immediately. There is a little bit of humor with the "underwear raid" and other items such as teenage crushes, that just make you want to go back in time and be 17 again. Speaking of crushes, I am all for Brady, being the right man for her-but we shall see. Looking forward to book 2! I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
