ARC Book Review: Out on Good Behavior by Dahlia Adler

ARC Book Review: Out on Good Behavior by Dahlia Adler

I love Dahlia Adler, yadda yadda yadda, so yeah, I needed to read Out on Good Behavior the instant it was available to me. And man. This does it. The Radleigh University series is one of the best and most solid new adult series out there. Consider this my vehement recommendation to anyone who has ever expressed any interest in new adult books. Whereas the previous books in the series have been a combination of romance and familial drama, Out on Good Behavior is pretty much pure romance – and not that drama-filled either. This would be the fluffy and bantery book of the series. […]

ARC Book Review: Just a Girl by Ellie Cahill

ARC Book Review: Just a Girl by Ellie Cahill

As a huge fan of When Joss Met Matt and Ellie Cahill’s YA books (under the name Liz Czukas), I honestly couldn’t resist Just a Girl. But if there’s anything this book has proven, it’s that not all new adult books – even by the same author – are created equal. Sure, there are things that I like about Just A Girl. In fact, the whole music / celebrity aspect of the story would have had me picking this up even if I didn’t know the author’s previous works. There’s something about those kinds of stories that always catches my attention. I just like characters […]

Book Review: Right of First Refusal by Dahlia Adler

Book Review: Right of First Refusal by Dahlia Adler

I adore Dahlia, so this book could have been exclusively about a Saturday morning spent doing groceries and laundry all by your lonesome, and I probably would have picked it up anyway. As it is, she asked me to read it for review and I jumped at the chance. In case you didn’t know, when it comes to spicy NA, Dahlia knows what she’s doing – a fact she only reinforced with Right of First Refusal. I will say, though, off the bat that the romance was not my top favorite thing about this book. Nay, it is actually in THIRD place, because Dahlia does […]

ARC Book Review: Call Me, Maybe by Ellie Cahill

ARC Book Review: Call Me, Maybe by Ellie Cahill

When Joss Met Matt remains one of my absolute favorite new adult books of all time. So, yeah, when I heard Ellie Cahill was coming out with another book, I was practically jumping for joy. (Some air kicks may have been done when I received a review copy.) But anyway, long story short, Call Me, Maybe delivered a few giggles and swoons but did not live up to my (admittedly high) expectations. Call Me, Maybe starts off STRONG. Clementine and Justin accidentally switch phones at an airport and keep in contact until they’re both back home to switch them back. That first part of their […]

Book Review: Bounce by Noelle August

Book Review: Bounce by Noelle August

Ever since Boomerang first came out, I thought I’d found a new NA romance writing duo that would suck me into the genre. Sadly, by Bounce I can officially say that it’s not quite the case. I enjoyed Bounce, sure, but it’s more or less like every other new adult title out there. Nothing special. I was super excited about Bounce when it was announced – we’d seen flashes of Grey in Rebound and he was the super fun, wild little brother to Adam. And he just joined a BAND. HELL FREAKING YEAH. I love stories about actors and/or musicians – the behind-the-scenes kind of […]

Book Review: All Played Out by Cora Carmack

Book Review: All Played Out by Cora Carmack

As soon as I heard that All Played Out would be about the studious Nell and hilarious goofball Torres, I was absolutely desperate for this book. I want more humor and hilarity to accompany my sexy NA – and with Cora Carmack, you know she’s bringing the sexy. All Played Out was a fun, romantic read, but one that still left me a tiny bit disappointed. There’s no question that my expectations for this book were rather high. And on a lot of counts, Carmack delivered. Torres is a funny, fun guy, for sure, and him falling for the sweet, studious girl was pretty adorable. […]

Book Review: Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler

Book Review: Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler

Since meeting Dahlia at BEA last year, I’ve been in awe of her utter awesomeness. (*cough* I’m not a kiss ass. Whatever.) And I’ve been more curious about new adult books in the last year, so when I heard about Last Will and Testament, my interest was piqued. But I was also worried, because WE TALK and stuff and WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE IT OMG THE WORLD WOULD END. I shouldn’t have worried, really. Last Will and Testament is excellent and one of my favorite new adult titles to date. I’ve read quite a few of these NA student-teacher relationship books, but I have […]

Book Review: Teaching Roman by Gennifer Albin

Book Review: Teaching Roman by Gennifer Albin

I guess this is karma, right? I read Catching Liam and I was totally in love – filled with hope for more NA books I could completely fall in love with – and then the SAME AUTHOR just has to ruin everythinggggggggg. Teaching Roman is just blah. So bad, it’s almost hilarious but for the fact that I want to cry. I can’t even believe the sheer stupidity that happened in this book. But I’ll try to keep calm and explain. My basic problem with Teaching Roman is that it is nothing but sex. And I like my sexy scenes every once in a while […]
