Sixteen-year-old Georgia Barrett is no expert on guys, but her bio-class partner is harder to dissect than anything in their lab tray. He’s smart, almost as sarcastic as she is, and cute in that preppie way. Things are great . . . until he decides her vegan activism is ridiculous and suddenly can’t refuse a date with her fast enough.

So why does he seem so upset that a senior hottie has taken an interest in her? 

Could he be interested in Georgia after all?


In this sequel to Snark and Circumstance, Georgia and Michael are getting along a little better, however he's still making fun of her stand on veganism, and when it seems like they might actually be becoming friends, he flat out refuses to go to the movies with her, no "maybe" about.

However, he doesn't like it when a fellow ex-Pemberley student starts taking an interest in her. So, where exactly does that put the two of them?

It's frustrating, at the end of the previous novella, it seemed as though they were finally getting their act together and starting to move forward, only we get to this novella and the whole thing is almost a one-step-forward-two-steps-back scenario.
Luckily things do improve reasonably quickly.

Georgia can sill seem extremely judgmental on some front, while Leigh gets a little more screen(?) time. 
Michael's behaviour can be more than a little confusing but he without a doubt proves that he is genuinely a decent guy. He and Georgia have a couple of potentially cute moments and he starts to make more of an effort and I really, really hope this continues into the next novella.
I am most definitely not a fan of Jeremy - he just seems kind of slimy (you know: untrustworthy, a user, someone with ulterior motives) and I don't like the way Georgia can get a little swept up with him at times.

While there were a few small annoyances in this novella, I will be reading part three because I simply must know what happens!

I rate CHARM AND CONSEQUENCE Three and a Half out of Five!!
