For fans of Abbi Glines and Colleen Hoover comes Mónica B. Wagner’s sexy New Adult debut series about falling in love and falling apart.

During welcome week at Hillson University, the FROSH will hit the fan.

Type-A aspiring journalist Ellie plans to take freshman year by storm. But hell-bent on breaking a huge on-campus scandal, she risks becoming one herself—and getting the mysterious, heart-melting QB in serious trouble.

Grant, star quarterback and charismatic chick-magnet, is hiding a life-altering secret. The last thing he needs is an overeager (absolutely adorable) journalist asking questions. He’s got a reputation to protect.

High-society legacy student Devon is ready to catch the football hottie of her dreams. If the tabloids feature her with the “it” boy on her arm, her tainted past will be buried—or so she thinks.

Charlie, pre-med, is done being the sweet and funny geek that girls like Devon ignore. But if he tries to impress her with a new edgy, spontaneous attitude, will his heart end up in the emergency room?

FIRST BLUSH intertwines the stories of Ellie, Grant, Devon, and Charlie in a romantic novel about first times and broken hearts.

The book was amazing from the start right up to the not so much ending. Why leave your readers hanging like that? Not cool.

I could not get into this book at all. There were way too many povs to keep up with. I felt that if maybe there weren't not as many povs then I would have finished the book.

This book was all over the place. I will give credit to the author, it was an interesting idea to give each of the four main characters a chapter. But I strongly dislike when the timeline jumps around. One chapter would be the morning of one day and end that night, and the next chapter would be that same morning of the chapter before. Sometimes I was confused on what was actually happening and what I thought might have happened. I will not be continuing on in this series, even after the huge cliffhanger at the end.

This felt like a TV soap opera, compete with the total lack of communication between the characters and the heavy drama. The characters felt unrealistic in their individual situations (this drama doesn't usually happen in reality, if ever) and extremely hot-and-bothered (but it wasn't explicit), but if you're into that, it was okay.

Elle was a journalist student. Tanner who was from her dorm was the RA of her dorm his job was to catch students doing things they weren’t suppose to be doing. Then it turned out Tanner was the Managing Editor of the Hillson Daily Nexus newspaper that Elle wanted to be a part of. Alexandra was the Editor In Chief and would be the one to decide if Elle gets the editorial assistant position she wants. Elle tended to be over eager and had to be careful now. The nexus was Elle’s dream paper. Elle wanted to reach people with her words. All the applicants for the position Elle wanted had to do interviews with pictures and write the story. Elle got a quarterback named grant Landry. Elle was not happy with this. But Tanner told her football was a big thing around there and she had the best assignment. Devon wants to clear her family name and was determined to be on Grants arm. Charlie had one drunken night with Devon and really cared about her. Maybe if he makes himself over Devon would want him. Grant was used to getting just about any girl but Elle was different. No matter what Grant did it seemed to make him look bad. But he felt Elle was worth the effort. I loved this story it was absolutely great. I even loved the different subplots going on which is unusual for me. But I Loved it and that is a compliment to the author. I loved all the characters especially Elle and Grant and all the twists and turns they both go through. I loved all aspects of this book. I highly recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

I absolutely loved this book! It had me hooked from page one and it was hard to put down. You would think having four points of view would muddy-up things and make the story super complicated to follow, but actually just shed more light on the story. It was super easy to follow and I loved every second of it. You would think these characters would have little to nothing in common, but they actually play huge roles in eachother's lives. This is definitely going to be a series full of drama and romance. I cannot wait to read the next one! If you love YA and NA, and drama, you will love this book!

FROSH is a unique, fun look at the lives of four young people as they make their way through their first year of college. It's unique because it is written from the POV of all 4 main characters. There's Ellie - the good girl. Always tries to do the right thing although she may want something else entirely. Then we have Grant the jock. Not your typical jock though. He's smart, determined, and not as committed to the game as some the others. My personal fav Charlie is the geeky science guy, thrown into the frat house for his GPA and tutoring. Lastly and my least favorite, there's Devon. The rich mean girl with a bit of a wild streak. Or is there more to Devon then she let's people see?? I really liked this one. I found the author's writing style very enjoyable and considering this is her debut novel, I'm expecting great things in the future. While the 4 person POV was a bit confusing in the beginning, once I got all the characters straight it worked out great! This is one I definitely recommend.

Told from the points of view of the star quarterback, the investigative journalist, the rich b**** and the nerd, THE FROST follows college freshman through the dreams and drama of the first days of college. The love scenes are hot and sexy and the end will leave you wanting the sequel!

This book is so much fun! It follows the lives of four college freshman, each one relatable in their own way. Ellie is capable, though not always certain which path to take. Devon is kickass, but she kind of has to be with so many demons at her heels. Then there's Grant, who is the all star quarterback, yet anything but stereotyped. And adorkable. Each twist in their lives had me wondering what was going to happen next. What's better than suspense you ask? Steam! FROSH #1 is just as sexy as it is clever.

I was fortunate to read an early draft of FROSH: FIRST BLUSH, and I can say that if you’re looking for hot, fun NA romance, this is it! FROSH has four completely unique main characters to fall in love with, and their romances are sweet, steamy, and full of twists that will keep you guessing right up until the very end. There's humor and some hot scenes, too!
