Book Reviews


Swoon worthy5 star

I hated Jason almost as much as I loved him but so happy that Felicity got her guy. Awesome story!!55


Just fine4 star

This one is probably the best out of the series. Overall the series is entertaining and easy enough, but didn’t really pull me in, there’s not enough character development. A lot of them aren’t even really physically described besides the loose generalizations so it’s hard to really picture the people. Most of the characters are pretty similar and the stories get pretty repetitive as they overlap, I ended up skipping the 3rd book and just jumped to the 4th to finish off the stories. But again, it’s a nice easy read and I like that she jumps between POVs45


Bucket list, determination what else do you need5 star

This book had you from the beginning and kept you interested until the end. Felicity was trying think outside the box and have experiences her last year of High School. Jason was the jock you love and hate. This story has it all, a bucket list, rivalry, and friendship. “I didn’t want to feel like this, to respond like this, but I couldn’t help it.” Reading this book you just can’t help but fall in love with Felicity’s corkiness and Jason’s determination. This is a well written book about pushing your boundaries and self discovery. This is a book everyone needs to read.55


Jason was so much more than a jerk hero!5 star

LA Cotton blew me away with this one. The characters have a lot to overcome, and watching their walls fall made me so happy. They both deserve their HEA. Felicity has a list that she wants to complete by senior year. This list helps her step out of her comfort zone. She is tied down my expectations and just wants to let loose. She is still her reserved self, but now she has a goal that motivates most of her actions. Jason was so much more than I was expecting. It was so nice to see him actually care about someone other than himself even if he has his own protective way of showing it. Jason is still his broody, jerk self, but now there is an extra layer there. As always this group of friends has been one of my favorites. They make me want to be apart of their dynamic so that I can witness all the banter and crazy pranks that take place. However this book had me so torn. I absolutely loved Jason and Felicity together, but my heart ached for Asher. He just wants to love someone, and he hasn’t found his match yet. I can’t wait for his book because he is such a great guy and deserves to find love. -An Arc was generously provided in exchange for an honest review.-55
