The Sophomore by Monica Murphy is now live!!! + My Review


The Sophomore by Monica Murphy is now live!


Jackson Rivers.

My not so secret crush.

He’s popular. Gorgeous. Talented.

Also my biggest weakness.

I’ve stood by him for years. Been a friend every time he needed one, but he doesn’t see me. Not like I want him to.

Move on, my friends said. Find someone new. Someone who sees your worth. Someone who gets you. I know they’re right. I’m only a friend to him. He’s never going to see me like I see him. So I take their advice, and try to move on.

But Jackson is always right there. In my face. Running to my rescue. And when I meet someone else, Jackson isn’t having it. For some reason, he’s suddenly determined to stay in my life. Right by my side.

Now he says he wants me, but does he want an actual relationship? Or is that he can’t stand the thought of losing me to another guy?

It’s time to find out what Jackson truly wants…and I’m going to make him work for it.

For me.

Sweet love! It is when we finally get to the good stuff with Jackson and Ellie. Who knew he’d be such a caring guy? He’s been all selfish swagger as the sexy rockstar in the making and footballer in these stories. When he finally realizes what’s important he shows another side. A mature side that’s fantastic especially when it comes to Ellie and her long suffering infatuation with him. Is he ready for more with her after his summer of music that’s all sex, drugs and rock n roll? Yeah, it may take awhile and a new guy in Ellie’s life. Ellie’s a sweetheart with tons of patience as she supports Jackson. It’s not exactly a friends to lovers romance since Ellie has always loved Jackson. It just takes him awhile to realize what he wants and needs. I love these college kids with their friendship and love. The girls are especially wonderful with their support for each other. There’s tons of family and friends in this story with this great group of college friends. This is a fantastic second story in this college romance series and I look forward to the next installment. Loved it!
