REVIEW - XO, Blake (The Undergrad Years #3) by Avery Aster

The Book
Release Date: 9 June 2015
Goodreads Link

For fans of the dark comedy BDSM film Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down comes an erotic exploration in domination and submission where Ivy League students let their naughtiest desires run wild…

If you think my besties Lex, Taddy, and Vive have had some bad luck earlier this year, cut to me at Glamorama. Last thing I remembered was dancing with Diego and Miguel from my English class, when the room started… spinning. And not in a good way! We got sick. Think Regan in The Exorcist. Taddy was rushed to the hospital. Holding on for dear life, I was carried out by the boys and taken back to their dorm.

Now I’m waking up in Diego’s bed and Miguel keeps staring at me from across the room. I’ve wanted to get into these dudes’ pants since the first day of class. But Diego told me he likes to be tied up and—wait for it—spanked. WTF! The news on TV reports that last night we all got roofied. And Vive just texted me saying that someone is out to kill her. Could this semester get any more bizarre? -–Blake Morgan, college freshman, gay best friend, virgin

The Undergrad Years is a new adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships.

My Opinion  4 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Book Enthusiast Promotions for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Although this book was good and gave us a little moron Blake's beginning, i was expecting a little more on the Diego, Blake romance corner.

We get another disaster with the Manhattanite crew  with sad consequences for Taddy.

Blake is still the glue that keeps all of the friends together and we get the moment when Thor tells Blake, the first person other than his family that he is HIV positive.  

As the friends stick together through this latest setback we get a conspiracy theory coming through for their misfortune.

Vive's story is the last one to come and it will be interesting to see what happens next while they are at college.
