Not Every Girl by Jane McGarry 



                                                         5/5 stars
                                               Goodreads description 

                                         Olivia Davenport’s plan is destined to fail.
      She is going through with it anyway, of course. After all, it is the chance of a lifetime. The unreasonable rules of others should not stand in her way.

     In her small kingdom of Stewartsland, Olivia trains with the squires and harbors a secret dream. She longs to become a knight under the command of the Master-of–Arms, who just happens to be her father. He has indulged her passion so far, but they both know a simple fact – girls may not attain knighthood. Dismayed by the constant discouragement of her ambitions, she makes an impetuous decision to disguise herself as a boy in order to sneak on a mission. The consequences are not at all what she anticipated.

     When her deception is revealed, she is sent home in disgrace; however, an unexpected turn of events puts her at the center of a dangerous plot against the King. The ensuing adventure finds her grappling with mercenaries and outlaws, yet these pale in comparison to her newly awakened emotions. She finds not only her life at risk, but also her heart, when the aloof Prince Liam begins to affect her in ways she never thought possible. In the end, it is her courage and unique spirit which must guide her through the challenges she encounters both physical and emotional.

                                                        My review

    Not Every Girl is definitely my new favorite book. So good. From the very beginning it had me on the edge.  It was one of those books where you just didn’t know what would happen next! I expected a crappy love triangle, but got a wonderful love story. It wasn’t another Romeo & Juliet with star crossed lovers, it was just beautiful. Price Liam wasn’t overly sweet or anything, but I loved that. He was a gentleman & treated Livy with respect, proved his love for her, and kept his word. He is seriously boyfriend goals. But the story wasn’t some sappy love story, it was full of action. Olivia is a great role model! She is strong, independent, brave and so much more. I have to say though, my favorite character was Athos. 😉 The ending was amazing. It didn’t leave me crying or dying for the sequel, but left me satisfied with how it turned out & still craving more. Cannot wait to read the next book! Jane, you done a wonderful job on this! One word to describe this: AMAZING. 
I recommend this to anyone who loves historic fiction or just wants to read an amazing book! 

So stop what you are doing, and go buy this book. Help Jane reach her dream of her book in print! You can buy this awesome book here
