Briar Prescott’s debut novel is an utter joy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Briar Prescott’s debut novel is an utter joy, simply delightful and with a real warmth to it.

On the face of it, it’s a new adult college romance between a jock and a nerd, but there’s so much more depth.

Andy was adorable, but never made to be foolish or worthy of pity. He knows he’s awkward, but he’s also not wallowing in the mire.

He’s forthright, highly intelligent and determined to make changes.

Law on the other hand, bucks nearly all the jock stereotyping. He’s struggling with family expectations, still coming to terms with the end of his ice hockey career and desperately trying to do the right thing to justify his coach’s support in giving him a position on the staff.

I loved how Briar slowly worked these two from mutually beneficial acquaintances and into a solid friendship without any unnecessary angst or dramedy.

The conclusion to the major plot line also surprised me in a great way and I loved the Epilogue.

My whole experience with this book was utterly charming.

FOSTER:

“Look out for Zach and don’t hit on him.”

My brother’s request sounds easy enough. Keep an eye out for his best friend on campus and keep my hands to myself.

Easy.

Even if Zach is a quintessential nerd, who I’ve always thought was cute, I don’t have the time to think with my … stick.

There’s only one stick I should be focused on this year, and that’s my hockey stick. My goal once I graduate is to get an NHL contract.

The last thing I need is a distraction. On or off the ice.

Only, keeping to the rules is harder than I thought it would be.

ZACH:

People confuse me.

And no one more than Foster Grant.

I’ve barely spoken two words to him in the whole time I’ve known him, but the second I step foot on campus, he’s impossible to shake.

I can never anticipate his next move. And whenever we’re together, my next move is a total mystery as well.

I want to give in to him, but that might mean coming clean about something I’ve never been bothered about before.

I’m still carrying my V-card.

And I think it’s time to turn it in.

This college romance was incredibly cute and a great read

53786394._SY475_Secret Admirer by D.J. Jamison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Soooo cute. I do love how DJ gets these sweet romances with either a fake boyfriend element or this secret admirer one so right.

It had just enough tension to stop it becoming saccharine and enough heat to blow the cobwebs off.

Both characters were engaging and I loved them together.

Brother’s best friend is one of my favourite tropes and this book tackles it with sweetness and a lot of humour.
