Synopsis: Jetting to Martinique for a modeling assignment with three of Europe’s hottest magazine photographers—Gustave, Fabian, and Leon—should’ve been easy, breezy beautiful. Never did I expect to look up and see a hole in the ceiling of our plane that was bigger in size than my Birkin bag.
Shit! We’re nose-diving toward Eden Island. I pictured how my New York Times obituary might read when I’m gone, “Taddy Brill, Manhattanite, dethroned descendant of the Austrian House of Brillford royalty, dies at age eighteen, penniless, unloved, and a virgin.” I swear this crap only happens to me. Suddenly, Leon pulls me with Fabian and Gustave. Adrenaline racing through me, our bodies clung as one. We prepared to…crash.
The Undergrad Years is a New Adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships.
Reader warning: Contains mature content intended for readers 17 and up.
What I Thought:
Boy was this book one crazy journey, literally for Taddy, her best friends, and three hot Frenchmen. I read this book very quickly. I was hooked from the first page. I envied Taddy for being on her way to the Caribbean with her pals and then the next thing I knew the plane is coming apart and I was no longer jealous.
There were some interesting twists I might have seen coming if I was paying better attention, but they took me by surprise and I enjoyed them once I stopped mentally cursing and screaming. Once again the gang got up to some shenanigans and most of them were enjoyable. I did feel for Taddy and the way some things went down for her.
Avery Aster has written another entertaining episode featuring one of the Manhattanites. I expected a fabulous story and I got one that was but a little short. I wanted to know more about the Frenchmen and what happened after. I know Avery's got stories planned for Blake and Vive but I'd like more of this one.
