Review - Love, Lex (The Undergrad Years, #1) by Avery Aster


This summer, I’d planned to celebrate my eighteenth birthday in Europe with my fellow Manhattanites—Taddy Brill, Blake Morgan, and Vive Farnworth—until I caught my boyfriend screwing my mother. According to the police report, this vomit-inducing incident happened around the same time I’d supposedly blown-up my mother’s penthouse. Like I’m walking around Soho with a stick of dynamite in my Louis Vuitton purse—not! Now, my besties and I are in jail.

Officer Ford Gotti, the Harley-wheelin’ biker cop who arrested us, keeps sticking his perfectly-sculpted nose into my case. His inked body is jacked like a superhero, and he says I can trust him. He wants me to fess up. I won’t. Not again. Why should I? My friends and I had a previous stint in juvie that nearly destroyed us. I gotta protect them and keep my mouth shut. Right? —Lex Easton, women’s studies major, motorcycle enthusiast, and virgin. 

The Undergrad Years is a New Adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships.

My Review - 4 Stars:

This was a quirky, sassy, snarky read that had me chuckling as I watched Lex’s story unfold. It was fun living the privileged life through the antics of Lexi and her friends and being reminded that no matter what social or economic circles you run in, you are faced with the same challenges as everyone else – and sometimes being in the eye of the public makes things even harder. I couldn’t help my heart from going out to Lex – there was quite the bit of dysfunction in her family, but despite it all, she was really quite a strong character. And I especially loved how she handled her lout of a boyfriend Kelle…
“Violence was never the answer. However, when used in moderation, it was nothing shy of total fabulousness.” **snicker**
There was quite a lot going on in this short story, and my only complaint would be that at times it seemed there was too much focus on Lex losing her “V” card – but I guess when you have sexy Officer Gotti as the star of Lex’s fantasies, that focus was probably warranted!

Looking forward to reading the next installment in the Undergrad miniseries!
