What it's about: Speaking of Austen, Persuasion heads to the Caribbean in Dass's debut, set in Trinidad and Tobago and starring a girl named Reyna who's tired of feeling trapped at her family's resort. It's certainly a whole lot less fun, even in paradise, without her first love Aiden, who moved away to pursue a career in music. Then Aiden returns (as a VIP guest, no less), and it's a major shock to Reyna's system, especially since he's returned with a girl on his arm. Now Reyna has to figure out if anything remains between them, and where exactly her future lies.
