White Fur by Jardine Libaire

Into the Wild

Read White Fur Online Free - A stunning star-crossed love story set against the glitz and grit of 1980s New York City

When Elise Perez meets Jamey Hyde on a desolate winter afternoon, fate implodes, and neither of their lives will ever be the same. Although they are next-door neighbors in New Haven, they come from different worlds. Elise grew up in a housing project without a father and didn't graduate from high school; Jamey is a junior at Yale, heir to a private investment bank fortune and beholden to high family expectations. Nevertheless, the attraction is instant, and what starts out as sexual obsession turns into something greater, stranger, and impossible to ignore.

The unlikely couple moves to Manhattan in hopes of forging an adult life together, but Jamey's family intervenes in desperation, and the consequences of staying together are suddenly severe. And when a night out with old friends takes a shocking turn, Jamey and Elise find themselves fighting not just for their love, but also for their lives.

White Fur follows these indelible characters on their wild race through Newport mansions and downtown NYC nightspots, SoHo bars and WASP-establishment yacht clubs, through bedrooms and hospital rooms, as they explore, love, play, and suffer. Jardine Libaire combines the electricity of Less Than Zero with the timeless intensity of Romeo and Juliet in this searing, gorgeously written novel that perfectly captures the ferocity of young love.

UPDATE.... LOST REVIEW IS RECOVERED!!!! Here is the LOST review I wrote Dec. 11th.... my 38th wedding anniversary....2016: I couldn't pull myself away from the story. The aura feels raunchy and wrong -- and if I'm honest I was turned on --and not by romance with candles and sweet talk. I was also o...

This is a gritty story of a raw desperate love, a clash of worlds colliding, of power, race, privilege, when the dirt poor, school dropout, mixed race and street smart Elise meets Jamey in New Haven, Connecticut where the two coincidentally happen to be neighbours. Jamey is a Yale man, whose path...

What a crazy, terrific book! Being a child of the 1980s, and given the fact that's when this book takes place, nothing captures the essence of White Fur better than these lyrics from the song "Obsession" by Animotion: You are an obsession I cannot sleep I am your possession Unopened at your feet The...

My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... The description for WHITE FUR had me extremely intrigued.

I don't even know how to put this book into words. I'm sure there are so many words out there in the English language that I could come up with but I really don't know. This is about Elise who came from no where but somewhere. This is about Jamey who came from money but learns there is something...

Everyone, really, is just looking for love.. This story is about two young people from different sides of the track who fall into a deep, intense relationship full of lust and grit and tragedy. It's dark, it's dirty, it's raw, and comical in some parts. This all takes place in the 1980's, in New Y...

Alright guys, it looks like I'm gonna be in the minority with this one. This is Fates and Furies all over again. White Fur was a long, painful slog for me. I thought this book was overwritten and vapid; the characters were loathsome and one-dimensional; and perhaps most frustratingly, there was a...

Oh man, this is my kind of book. Elise and Jayme are an unlikely match. She's from the 'hood' and has had a pretty rough time growing up. He is from privilege and extravagance, movie star mother puts his life in the spotlight. Parties, holidays abroad, Yale education...you get the picture that th...

3.75 stars. How many ways can you reconfigure Romeo and Juliet? Probably infinitely. In some respects, White Fur is incredibly original. In other ways, it's awfully familiar. Set in the late 1980s, Elise and Jamey meet while Jamey is a student at Yale. Jamey comes from a ridiculously wealthy and...
