Yours Truly, Taddy (The Undergrad Years, #2)Yours Truly, Taddy by Avery Aster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who doesn't love Taddy and the rest of the gang?

This is the second tale in the Undergrad Years series and follows Taddy and her misfit group of friends to get photo shoot. Things don't exactly go to plan though and the group find themselves facing death as their plane develops a problem.

Who knew that, despite the events which occur as a result of the plane's crash that Taddy would have such an interesting time in the arms of Leon!!!

I can't wait for the next instalment and to read Blake's story.

If you're looking for a lighthearted read and one which is, at times, hysterically funny then read Avery Aster's amazing series. It lifts your spirits and helps you to enjoy the funnier side of life!!!

XO, Blake (The Undergrad Years, #3)XO, Blake by Avery Aster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I've always loved Blake and this sweet instalment has just made me love him even more.

What an opportunity Avery Aster has given us to spend time with the four besties, who are in their late teens, as they continue to be faced with danger around what seems like every corner. We've had an explosion, a plane crash and now we have yet another possible deliberate attack on the group but who would want to hurt them?

Although all four of the Manhattanites feature in this short story but it's Blake who sets the story on fire as he finally gets his hands on the man, or men, of his dreams. And boy, do sparks fly when they come together. I really can't wait for more, grown up, Blake.

I love the gentle humour and friendly sparring in these stories as each personality fights for dominance. They are easy to read, thoroughly enjoyable and really addictive. I can't wait for more from Avery Aster and Blake, Taddy, Vive and Lex.

5 Star Review: Always & Forever, Vive (The Undergrad Years #4) by Avery Aster

Always & Forever, Vive (The Undergrad Years, #4)Always & Forever, Vive by Avery Aster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


These stories may be short but they pack a fantastic punch.

From the first few lines you laugh and fall in love that little bit more with Vive as you realise what a wild and free spirited child she was and the way her childhood has formed who she is today. I especially love the school reports which all outline the reasons the foursome ended up at Avon Porter and not incarcerated, permanently.

Vive, Taddy, Lex and Blake are still determined to find out who, if anyone, is trying to harm them or if they have simply been part of an unfortunate set of circumstances. This time, they reach out to Sanderloo to see whether he can help them unlock the mysteries of their recent run of bad luck. I was crying laughing when even beyond the grave poor Sanderloo is still fearful of Vive and her friends.

The madness continues along with the sexiness especially when we are introduced to Vive's boyfriends, yes that's right, plural, and as you can expect with Vive and her high expectations in live, they are perfect, in almost every way!!!

I simply love Avery Aster's writing style. She is has a wonderfully quirky way of expressing herself through her characters and by doing so pulls you into the storyline until you are crying out for more. This is so much more than a YA series, it sets the scene for the Manhattanites in their later years as we witness what moulded them into what they have become today; simply fabulous.
