I have to admit it's been a while since I read the first rusk university novel so I went into this book not remembering any of the characters. Luckily this had no negative impact on my reading experience and I was caught up in these awesome characters straight away.

I was completely in love with Silas from the start. He jumped right on into the loveable asshole manwhore that i love in my potential book boyfriends. And despite his issues it was easy to see the truly amazing man he was and I wanted him to pull his head out of his ass and realise how much he had going for him.

Dylan had moments I just wanted to slap her. But overall she was beautiful and loving and just desperately needed to see how truly loveable she was if only she would figure out who she was and let the people around her in enough to be loved.

The secondary characters were sweet and I can't wait to read the rest of the series to see how they all play out and see a bit more of Silas and Dylan together.

It takes a lot of talent to take a character who is highly unlikable and make her a princess. But Ginger Scott did all that and more. This series has absolutely been one of the best New Adult series I have read this year.

When we first meet Paige in This is Falling she was highly unlikable and I was so relieved when she moved out to join the Delta’s and we didn’t have to hear from her, I kind of hoped she would just drop out of the series altogether. Then we saw a little more of her selfish, nastiness in You and Everything After and I wanted her to be hit by a bus.

But the thing that had me holding my breath waiting for this final instalment in a series that has kept me rapt from the first page was the teaser at the end of You and Everything After.

As I read this I was reminded of one of my favourite quotes from Making Faces  “everyone is a main character to someone” and I got the opportunity to see Paige through the eyes of Houston. As well as see the actions I had judged so harshly from her point of view rather than just seeing the fallout they created for other people.

And I found myself wanting her friends and family to see everything she was going through and help her. But Paige isn’t a princess in need of rescuing, she is more than capable of saving herself and it was an absolute pleasure to watch her strength and character grow. And to see her realise how phenomenal she is. 

From the second I met Houston I loved him. He was the perfect gentleman without putting up with Paige’s bullshit or coming across as weak. Houston’s life was hard and his history was devastating but he was such an amazing knight in shining armour and the other parts of his life just made him a very solid candidate for Book Boyfriend of the Year.

I am truly devastated to see the end of this series but I am excited to now have a new go to author after discovering these books. So if you’re a fan of New Adult or College romance these are a must read.

Well what can I say? This was another feel good Reed Brothers story about love and family and I loved it hard.

From the first book I have been addicted and the Reed brothers have never let me down, when they love, they love hard and there is no bullshit or stupid misunderstandings. There is just real life and a lot of understanding and acceptance.

When they first joined families with the Fallen From Zero Girls I wasn’t sure I would like it. So far the books had been based on each individual brothers but we still got a lot of them all together and kept up with their growing families and I loved being in their bubble. Not that I don’t love Melio and Marta and the girls just I didn’t want to lose any of my time with the brothers.

I shouldn’t have worried though since Sam and Peck got together the families have joined and so we still got a little of the brothers but we also got a few more people to love.

Anyway back to these guys. Well we were briefly introduced to Tag when he showed up on Star and Wren’s doorstep then vanished $50k richer so he really didn’t start off on the best foot and Tammy started this book off by revisiting that time from his point of view and I have to admit for the first few chapters he doesn’t seem to be much better than we think.

But of course Tammy doesn’t write about irredeemable arseholes so we do find out why he is behaving as he is and we learn his secrets and watch him heal the wounds that have been inflicted to Finch. And of course we get his beautiful little baby boy, Benji.

So once again I have finished the book with a happy feeling in my heart and a tiny bit of faith in human kind as a whole and I can’t wait to see the rest of the girls fall in love and add to this crazy family.

If you haven’t yet started this series I honestly can’t think of a better example of a New Adult romance that’s angst and drama free.
