In FROSH: First Blush, Ellie, Grant, Devon, and Charlie spent their welcome week falling head over heels for each other—before totally falling apart. Now, in FROSH: Second Chances, they’ll have to pick up the pieces.
After ruining Grant’s football career (and her own reputation), Ellie has been trying to lie low—which means not making more enemies. But some students are still determined to make her pay for what she did, and now, Ellie’s determined to fight back—and fight for Grant.
Grant is adjusting to his new reality: no more football means no more free passes in class, and definitely no more distractions; especially from Ellie, whom he misses even after she destroyed his world. Can he find a way to move on without her—and without football?
Devon finally has it all: her brother’s sober and her boyfriend is an adorkable genius. But when her parents threaten to tear her and Charlie apart because he doesn’t ‘fit’ into their high society, she will go to dangerous lengths to prove that nothing—nothing—can defeat Devon Connors.
Charlie’s never questioned who he is: pre-med science geek, and now, Devon Connors’ boyfriend. But when he discovers a secret about his past, Charlie isn’t sure of anything—especially whether he can trust Devon with the truth.
Perfect for fans of Cora Carmack and Colleen Hoover, Monica B. Wagner’s sexy New Adult series follows these four characters all the way to winter break—when the only thing they’ll want more than first love is a second chance.

Second Chances, FROSH 2, Mónica B. Wagner Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Romance, New Adult. Gah!! third part isn’t out til next year... that's just what I hate about trilogies and duologies, you’re hooked in to the story, racing along with the characters and then..The End, For now anyway, come back next year :-( I loved the first book, First Blush but that was last year and a few hundred books back, so when picking this up although I could recall roughly the story and the main dramas the intensity had gone, and I was confused by some of the references such as the Tanner/Ellie kiss..I just can’t remember that, what prompted it, why it happened. Books like this are great because they allow the space for the author to really expand the characters and the plots, but its the waiting that’s so hard. I get the most from these by rereading when all parts are out, going straight from book 1 to 2 and then to 3. Still, next year *sigh* Its another terrific read, packed full of dramas and angst. Ellie and Grant have parted after the revelations of the last book, but there’s still the feeling that they are on the edge of getting back if only they would talk, see each other, one of them take that step.They both still have such strong feelings for each other and I was rooting for them to move forward. Ellie’s still dealing with the fallout, getting bullied and blamed for the situation, even though she was a victim too and not the one who caused the issue. Its easier to blame her though, than to look at the years of abuse and failings of the booster system. Now the problems have stepped up and Ellie is scared – when will it stop? Is it really worth staying here given her reputation is in tatters and Grant seems lost to her? He asked for space and she’s given it, but will he ever want to go back to her? Then there’s the gorgeous Charlie, he’s really such a Gem, a true Gentleman. I remember loving him in book one and he’s still that same incredible, intelligent, caring and genuine man. Wish there were more like him, and given how hard its been for him and his mum he’s a real credit to her, has some values that would make the world better if we all shared them. He’s been hiding though, behind his created anonymous podcaster Dr Love, a fun thing that's become really popular and a huge question for the students, they love Dr Love, but who is he? He’s the man Charlie would really like to be, cool, popular, able to fit in easily. You can see Charlie's issues by looking at how he’s shaped Dr Love. Then there’s his girlfriend Devon. She’s got issues too- on the face she has it all, money, popularity, self confident and yet her family are fractured and she’s trying to put it all right. Her parents are more concerned with reputation than rightness, and her brother has had drug and alcohol problems which of course get covered up for the family rep. I’m kind of mixed about Devon, can’t remember really feeling strongly about her in book one but here – she’s all the things I hate, selfish, self obsessed, a bully, a real b itch in fact! Yet Charlie thinks the world of her and she does seem to think much of him. Opposites attract and all that. I love the family dinner and Lobster Woman. Poor Charlie, he seems to see a different side to Devon and its well hidden from the rest of us. What will happen when he sees her as we do? Or will she change? Can she change? Does she want to? She likes the ease of her life, the way mo
I was fortunate to read an Advance Reader's Copy of this fresh, fun romance. A swoony college quarterback, a stressed out journalist, a cute science nerd, and a spoiled rich girl, are all struggling with relationships that started off on the wrong foot, and trying to keep their hearts from getting broken. The characters and their relationships are unique, hot, and unpredictable, and will keep you guessing! Can’t wait to see how everything turns out in Frosh 3!
I read the first book in this series where we first met these characters and I loved it. This one not as much. While all four main characters are back this particular book focuses on my least favorite character Devon. Grant is dealing with life without football and Ellie. Football he doesn't really miss but Ellie is another story. Ellie's life isn't going so well either. She misses Grant like crazy and now she's being targeted as campus snitch when football is suspended from Hillson. It seems no one wants her here so why is she fighting so hard to stay?? Will Grant ever forgive her?? Devon is still the typical over privileged mean girl and it appears her target is Ellie. Just can't like this character. The way she treats sweet Charlie makes me so angry. All Charlie is sure of these days is he loves Devon (why I just don't understand). When he founds out information about his father his world is turned upside down. The writing in this one is good and it is in the same 4 person POV as the first book. It just didn't work for me because I can't connect with Devon's character and so much of this book is about her. That aside it is an ok read and I would recommend it.
