**SWOON** Another out of the park read from Kiera Cass. She keeps us on the edge of our seats eagerly anticipating The One in 05/14. I LOVED the Guard. It was fantastic. Definitely some super romance and love vibes. I love how the story is told from Aspen's perspective so that you get to see his emotions in conjunction with America's that we see in the Elite. We also get to see his interactions with Aspen on a few of the scenes as well. The Guard was an emotional roller coaster of feels that you embrace along with Aspen. Oh and the BEST part....The excerpt from The One!!! I could not stop laughing at a few of the bits. It was hilariously good! If you haven't read this series you MUST get to the bookstore and pick up the Selection. You won't be sorry. Hurry....before The One comes out in May. You need this series in your life. 5 Stars!

I love the Selection series! Before I read the Guard I was more of a Maxon fan, but now I'm totally torn between him and Aspen. This was a great novella and I'm counting down the days until The On

This book was OK, but it really didn't change my opinion about Aspen, I still hate him honestly (I'm not talking about him breaking up w/ her, I read this after the 2nd book). Let's face it, Aspen is a jerk. I'm not saying that Kiera Cass is a bad writer (she is AMAZING!!!!) but Aspen is just that kind of character, and Mrs. Cass really does a great job of describing his personality. He just pushes America away and then makes an excuse and she loves him again and then he's like I don't know if I can do this America I think you love Maxon and I just want you to be happy and whatever and then he's like all I need is hope and do you still love me America and whatever. It just frustrated me. People say that America was the wishy-washy one in this book, and she was a litte, but mainly it was Aspen. I HATE ASPEN!!!!! HE DROVE ME CRAZY!!! The whole second book I was like crossing my fingers and just hoping that Aspen would get killed in a rebel attack or something. It really would have made things so much simpler between America and Maxon. Anyway, yes, this novella was great, it's just that I just generally don't like Aspen. Thank you Kiera Cass for a great series!!!

Love any book that goes along with the Selection series. Obviously if you haven't read the Selection you should read the first. This is my favorite series by far with romance and some action the books become hard to put down. Can't wait for The One to come out!

This one was ok. Let's face it....we don't care too much about Aspen. It's all about Maxon.

5 Stars Well I didn't think it was possible to like Aspen but this book made me do it. I wish it would've shown how Aspen came to love Lucy and their relationship though. I never understood just who's much Aspen loved America until I read this story. I thought he just had a small case of puppy love, but in reality he was truly in love with her. Situations being what they are, they fell out of love or perhaps just grew up. I'm glad Aspen and America found love, regardless of who it was with. This story told a different side to Aspen that I think the triology skipped over. Don't get me wrong, I'm still Team Maxon but I don't dislike Aspen as much now. I think this story was a great addition to this series. Well done Kiera.
