(The Undergrad Years, #1)
by Avery Aster
This summer, I’d planned to celebrate my eighteenth birthday in Europe with my fellow Manhattanites—Taddy Brill, Blake Morgan, and Vive Farnworth—until I caught my boyfriend screwing my mother. According to the police report, this vomit-inducing incident happened around the same time I’d supposedly blown-up my mother’s penthouse. Like I’m walking around Soho with a stick of dynamite in my Louis Vuitton purse—not! Now, my besties and I are in jail.
Officer Ford Gotti, the Harley-wheelin’ biker cop who arrested us, keeps sticking his perfectly-sculpted nose into my case. His inked body is jacked like a superhero, and he says I can trust him. He wants me to fess up. I won’t. Not again. Why should I? My friends and I had a previous stint in juvie that nearly destroyed us. I gotta protect them and keep my mouth shut. Right? —Lex Easton, women’s studies major, motorcycle enthusiast, and virgin.
The Undergrad Years is a New Adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships.
Reader warning: Contains mature content intended for readers 17 and up.
★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!
If you noticed, I’ve been reading a lot of erotic tales for the past few months. Honestly, I just started reading erotica or naughty Adult fiction almost 3 years ago, when someone told me Fifty Shades of Grey was a great book. Unfortunately, I did not agree with my friend. After reading Avery Aster’s Love, Lex… Oh well, let me just say, 50 Shades paled in comparison. Love, Lex is way better than timid Anastasia Steele’s pursuits. Sorry…
The thing is, I think I have a love-hate relationship with Lex Easton. She’s got qualities that I really love about her – chubby, witty, driven and doesn’t take shit even from her high-profile mom. And what do I hate about her? Well, not her, really, but I hate her Manhattanies friends.. I hate that Blake, Taddy and Vive were spoiled socialite stereotypes. Gahd.. I roll my eyes whenever Blake do something I am NOT able to do.. LOL.. But seriously, in the end, I get them. I get their attitudes, I get how they all blend together and I love how they stand up for one another.. AND the very best thing I love about the story – I love Officer Ford, too, dammit! I want to have a piece of him.
Okay, that’s all I have to say right now. I’m off to pacify my heartbeat. This Undergrad Years Book 1 series is making me all sweaty and dreamy. Yay!
I received this book for free in exchange of an honest review.
I’m a New Yorker who lives on the Upper East Side. I write THE MANHATTANITES, a contemporary romantic soap opera of full length, stand alone novels, and it’s juicy prequel companion series THE UNDERGRAD YEARS.
