You can tell by the title that this is the start of a series so I guess I’m stating the obvious…so what it’s my blog and I can be ridiculous if I want. Some people don’t like to start a series until it’s complete, me, I could careless. Which is a total lie since I am the most impatient person I know. Anyway, this is the start of what looks to be a pretty damn good series…
Type-A aspiring journalist Ellie plans to take freshman year by storm. But hell-bent on breaking a huge on-campus scandal, she risks becoming one herself–and getting the mysterious, heart-melting QB in serious trouble.
Grant, the star quarterback, and charismatic chick-magnet is hiding a life-altering secret. The last thing he needs is an overeager (absolutely adorable) journalist asking questions. He’s got a reputation to protect.
High-society legacy student Devon is ready to catch the football hottie of her dreams. If the tabloids feature her with the “it” boy on her arm, her tainted past will be buried–or so she thinks.
Charlie, pre-med, is done being the sweet and funny geek that girls like Devon ignore. But if he tries to impress her with a new edgy, spontaneous attitude, will his heart end up in the emergency room?
FIRST BLUSH intertwines the stories of Ellie, Grant, Devon, and Charlie in a romantic novel about first times and broken hearts
Review: I love college romances because I feel like this is where life begins for most people. Some are lucky enough to find HS sweethearts but for the majority of us, life starts when you leave home. And that is exactly how it is for these 4 college freshmen. Each from a different background, searching for different things, but somehow end up entwined with each other.
There is love, hate, jealousy and a geek to chic makeover that will make you fall for the nerd everyone overlooks. It wasn’t too smutty which I expected since it is a college romance but just enough to get you a little warm under the collar.
The book flowed fairly well as it was told in 3rd person via each character’s POV. You love the characters you are supposed to and you hate the ones that are total asshats. Ellie is awesome, Devon is a bitch, Charlie is cute and Grant is my favorite. You get just enough of each character to wet your whistle and gain a feel for them but the author leaves you wanting more. There is a twist at the end that guarantees I will be back for book 2 and so will you. 4 stars to the start of what promises to be a pretty cool series.
