Love, Lex by Avery Aster

Love, Lex (The Undergrad Years, #1)
Rating 4 stars

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:
I really liked this. I wish it was longer. Lex has pretty low self-esteem. Both of her parents are rock star so she has been in the eyes of the media since she was a kid. Not as skinny as the other kids she was made fun of for her extra bit of weight. Now the day before her eighteenth birthday, she is trying to lose the weight her scumbag boyfriend told her to lose in order for him to have sex with her. Talk about a low opinion of yourself to even think about agreeing to something like that.

This story was interesting from beginning to end. I found that the end was rushed. Regardless, I liked the story. I would love to get to know all the characters in the quartet. You can tell that each character had their own story to tell. I am eager to read the full length novel Undressed. Happy Reading!
