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.

Office Ford Gotti, the Harley-wheelin' biker cop who arrested us, keeps sticking his perfectly-sculpted nose into my case. His inked body is jacked up 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.

Love, Lex is currently **FREE**

Having read Unscrupulous and thus being familiar with Lex, Taddy, Vive, and Blake, I was excited for a glimpse into this quirky quartet's early years. And I enjoyed the peek I got in Love, Lex.

Alexandra 'Lex' Easton is the daughter of famous parents. That, along with her full-figured appearance, have made her the butt of many jokes and a target of the paparazzi. With her 18th birthday looming, Lex has plans to spend her special day in Paris, with her besties. She is also planning on having over Lady V to her boyfriend. But when she finds her boyfriend and her mom in a compromising position, things get out of control.

Love, Lex is pure escapism. It's a fast-paced, entertaining read chronicling a moment in time that forever changed Lex. It also provided some brief glances at the events that tied together these four individuals forever. It's also a no-holds barred, shocking, sometimes raunchy, sometimes sexy look at the lives of children of the rich. I likened The Manhattanites series (Lex & Co all grown up) to Sex and the City, and I have a feeling The Undergrad Years will coincide with that assessment. I'm looking forward to the next installments.


  1. Fast paced and entertaining sounds great.

  2. I read a bit if Unscrupulous, and do agree with your comparison to SatC. I'm glad you enjoyed this!

  3. I'm on an accidental contemporary binge, I hope I read fast enough to add this to the list before my mood changes. i do love her!

  4. I have read this one and was a little on the fence about it (review coming later). I just found it a little too rushed. It is good to see you enjoyed it because you read the next book already. Nice review Brandee.

  5. I have this book! I can't remember if I bought it from Amazon or got it from Netgalley, but the cover drew me in as well as the title. I'm really looking forward to reading this book, especially after knowing you loved it! :)
