HEAD IN THE GAME by Lily Cahill
Head in the Game: A College Football Romance (Game Day Book 1) - Lily Cahill

Lilah does not like football players because of her past.  Riley is going to help her overcome her aversion to football players.  She is also is art professor for the summer semester. 

 

I liked the characters.  I enjoyed the story as Lilah goes from deep dislike to love.  Riley changes also with Lilah's influence.  He starts to see other possibilities for his life.  Proofreading could have been better.

 

I plan on reading the rest of the series.  This is a good start for it.

Coming of age tale
College Threeway: A First Time Gay Roman... College Threeway: A First Time Gay Romance (Bareback University) - Angel Lovecox

Leighton likes Alex, Alex likes Geoff, Geoff likes Leighton - a situation with the potential for all kinds of crazy, but works out pretty well in this sweet, steamy, coming of age read. The story is fast-paced and the characters are likable. The last chapter was sweet but a bit heavyhearted, I would've preferred that the story end with chapter 17 and a HFN ending. The end isn't bad, just not quite what I expected. Overall, the story did hold my interest and was an entertaining read.

Against the Tide (Sweet Gay Romance): M/M College YA Best Gay Love Stories (Ridgemont University Book 2)
Against the Tide (Sweet Gay Romance): M/M College YA Best Gay Love Stories (Ridgemont University Book 2) - Meredith Taylor OK... warning... the following may just be the rantings caused by parts of this book making me an emotional basketcase.!
This is the 2nd book in the series and in both books I found the the first 60% of them to be unbelievably difficult to get through and the final 40% of the books to be incredibly good. Now I will allow that since both times the turning point just happened to coincide with the point where the two main characters finally start to get along and develop a real relationship. So maybe I just don't like conflict, stupidity or anything else idiot humans do instead of actually admitting the truth and dealing with it. Or maybe the first 60% of both books just sucked... Either way I am gonna stop for the time being and not read the rest of the series. I may come back to it when my emotional state is better and I can deal with characters that don't feel real cuz they are just too stupid to breathe.
Regardless, I am giving the book 3 stars cuz 40% I liked and of the other 60% there were parts of it that we ok.

Another Brilliant, Beautifully Written Book by Zack Love!!
Anissa's Redemption: A Young Woman's Saga from War in Syria to Love in NY Continues (The Syrian Virgin Series Book 2) - Zack Love

Just when I thought that Zack Love had written his most impressive novel to date when he wrote "The Syrian Virgin", he pleasantly surprises me with “Anissa’s Redemption!” I had such a book hangover afterward that it took awhile for me to come out of my literary fog.

Many times when a book I really love ends with a cliffhanger, I find myself hanging onto those last few words and images in hopes that the sequel will be written soon after so that I won’t forget all of its excitement and the feelings the writer has evoked. I worry, too, that with all the anticipation and expectation leading up to the sequel, in the end, it will fall short and leave me disappointed with the series.

This was DEFINITELY not the case with Zack Love’s sequel to “The Syrian Virgin” called “Anissa’s Redemption.” In fact, it was so much better than I ever imagined it would be and it did NOT disappoint!

In “Anissa’s Redemption”, I loved how (seemingly) effortless it was for Zack to pick up where he ended in “The Syrian Virgin” and how from the very beginning, the plot and all his characters continued to evolve and develop throughout. Zack’s intelligent writing and extensive research also continued to paint an accurate and compelling portrayal of the religious struggles caused by Syrian Civil War. But what I loved most about “Anissa’s Redemption was his brilliant ability to peel away more and more of Anissa, Michael and Julien’s "layers" to reveal their true selves and their darkest secrets before the readers’ eyes and not only make them appear more human, but more endearing as well.

In writing "Anissa’s Redemption", Zack created an exciting and quite an emotional roller coaster ride and with every twist and turn of events, he takes his readers through many surprising developments and defining moments!

Definitely a must read!

Heart Racer
Heart Racer: Heart Racer College Biker Romance Series - Marian Tee

This was your usual contemporary romance where girl meets boy, falls in love with boy, boy does something wrong--breaking girls heart...and then usually they make up again and live happily ever after. Only this ended with the boy--Leandro--breaking the girls--Bobby's--heart.

 

I know it's a series and that the author needed to continue it somehow but I kinda feel cheated, there didn't seem to be a proper ending.

 

As for the rest of the book, I can't say that I ever really got into it. I was unattached from the characters and the storyline. I don't know if it's because I've read too many books that are similar or if it was the style but something stopped me from liking it. It was just "meh" for me.

 

I don't think I'll be continuing the series.
