XO, Blake

For fans of the dark comedy film Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down comes an erotic exploration in domination and submission where Ivy League students let their naughtiest desires run wild…

If you think my besties Lex, Taddy, and Vive have had some bad luck earlier this year, cut to me at Glamorama. Last thing I remembered was dancing with Diego and Miguel from my English class, when the room started… spinning. And not in a good way! We got sick. Think Regan in The Exorcist. Taddy was rushed to the hospital. Holding on for dear life, I was carried out by the boys and taken back to their dorm.

Now I’m waking up in Diego’s bed and Miguel keeps staring at me from across the room. I’ve wanted to get into these dudes’ pants since the first day of class. But Diego told me he likes to be tied up and—wait for it—spanked. WTF! The news on TV reports that last night we all got roofied. And Vive just texted me saying that someone is out to kill her. Could this semester get any more bizarre? -–Blake Morgan, college freshman, gay best friend, virgin

The Undergrad Years is a naughty new adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships.


My Review:
I am an fan of Avery Aster. So far, she has yet to let me down. XO, Blake is of course about Blake Morgan III. The gay bestie and more the well conservative one of the group. Each member of this group have been through some things both alone and as a group. I'm not going to talk about the previous drama but you can read my review of Love, Lex and Your Truly, Taddy.

In this one, Blake finally turns in his V card. Unfortunately, that is the only positive event that happens to him. One bomb is dropped after another but the best friends remain strong. Blake is shown to be the glue of the group. The things that happens to this group it's amazing they aren't all in thearpy.

The book is fast paced and action packed. It not a standalone in the sense that there will be unanswered questions at the end however, you don't have to read the previous book (or books in order) to follow along. I going to admit something here and some of you may not like it but hey can't please all of the people all of the time right. I was as deep into the love story as I normally would be. Yes, it's because of the man on man love. That's not to say that I am not happen that Blake found his little piece of happiness in the story. It just that reading about it didn't get my juices running. So for those you can't read explicit homosexual sex scenes you're going to have a problem with this one.

That being said, I love the story as I knew I would. I want to know more. Here are some questions to tease you with. Will Taddy deal with the lost she had? Will Blake new found love be his only love? Will Blake secret admire continue to admire afar yet to close? Ahhh...can't wait for the next adventure.
