Ex Libris Romance: New Adult Round-Up!

Welcome, romance readers!  Today I’m sharing my reviews of three romances in the New Adult category.  There’s a lot of NA romance out there right now, so here are three that I think you will enjoy.

Find out more about my romance ratings here.

Rule by Jay Crownover Rule
Author: Jay Crownover
Heat: Hot
Publisher: Self
Available Now
Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight–A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn’t want–and the only person she’s never tried to please. She isn’t afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won’t listen. To a rebel like Rule Archer, Shaw Landon is a stuck-up, perfect princess-and his dead twin brother’s girl. She lives by other people’s rules; he makes his own. He doesn’t have time for a good girl like Shaw-even if she’s the only one who can see the person he truly is. But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule have to figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love . . . or each other. – Goodreads

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you don’t like the good girl + bad boy scenario, this won’t be for you.  However, I will say that there are some side elements to this story that made is a little different that your run-of-the-mill bad boy tale.  First of all, Rule has an identical twin that was killed tragically, so there is a lot of baggage that everyone is carrying around.  The next angle of the story is that Shaw has spent so much time with Rule and his family because her own is such a mess.  The story ended up being much more than I thought it would be, with all of the steaminess that you would expect with this genre.

True by Erin McCarthyTrue
Author: Erin McCarthy
Heat: Hot
Publisher: Penguin
I received this galley in exchange for my honest review
Available Now
When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory. Tyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better. There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back when he knows he shouldn’t… Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost… – Goodreads

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I sort of had to get around the roommates trying to deflower Rory by “hiring” someone they know, but once you get past that, you will find a romance that juxtapises someone from a poor, working class background and a sheltered girl from the suburbs.  There are some interesting familial interactions in this story, which was nice because it rounded it out.  Tyler is not really a “bad boy” but rather someone who is struggling to provide for a very dysfunctional family.  He’s not rebelling against the system, he’s trying desperately to avoid being a victim of it.  I thought Rory and Tyler worked well as a couple and, as I said before, the family element kind of made the story for me.

 

Rush Me by Allison Parr Rush Me
Author: Allison Parr
Heat: Medium
Publisher: Carina Press
I received this galley in exchange for my honest review
Available Now
While most girls would be thrilled to meet the attractive young millionaire, Rachael would rather spend time with books than at sporting events, and she has more important things to worry about than romance. Like her parents pressuring her to leave her unpaid publishing internship for law school. Or her brother, who’s obliviously dating Rachael’s high school bully. Or that same high school’s upcoming reunion. Still, when Ryan’s rookie teammate attaches himself to Rachael, she ends up cohosting Friday night dinners for half a dozen football players.
Over pancake brunches, charity galas, and Alexander the Great Rachael realizes all the judgments she’d made about Ryan are wrong. But how can a Midwestern Irish-Catholic jock with commitment problems and an artsy, gun-shy Jewish New Englander ever forge a partnership? Rachael must let down her barriers if she wants real love–even if that opens her up to pain that could send her back into her emotional shell forever. – Goodreads

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I loved this story’s pairing of a professional football player and a bookish recent college grad who knows nothing about football.  Together, Rachael and Ryan are very different but their two worlds are interesting to read about.  Rachael is struggling to find her place in publishing after a comfortably middle class upbringing while Ryan is living a very lavish lifestyle after a humble upbringing.  The cast of supporting characters made this book very enjoyable with a lot of fun banter and sweet romance.

  1. Ooh I haven’t read any of these! I wanted to read True already, but now I’m thinking I should pick them all up. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hah hah, I love that you have a heat factor rating, Kate! I’ve seen TRUE floating around the blogosphere–it doesn’t sound like the type of story I’d automatically be interested in, but the reviews have me intrigued.

    I do have a soft spot for the good girl/bad guy thing when it’s done well, though, so I might give that a shot sometime, too.

  3. RUSH ME actually sounds pretty good! It’s mostly because I find the main character very interesting, particularly as she’s bookish. I may just have to check that one out!

  4. I know of the fact that nowadays, more and more people are increasingly being attracted to video cameras and the subject of picture taking. However, being a photographer, you must first shell out so much time deciding which model of digicam to buy as well as moving store to store just so you can buy the most inexpensive camera of the brand you have decided to decide on. But it would not end just there. You also have to take into account whether you should obtain a digital camera extended warranty. Thanks alot : ) for the good ideas I accumulated from your site.
