I am conducting what I'm shelving as a "New Adult (NA) Experiment". I'm going to work my way through some of the popular New Adult books and see if I can weed out the crap and hopefully find some surprising gems. Here's hoping!

I think I should just give up trying with New Adult literature. So far, the genre has offered none of the maturity or complexities of the liminal period between teen years and full-on adulthood, instead preferring what merely amount to college age erotic romances with a hefty side dish of misogyny. Indeed, the frequency with which sexist portrayals of women and relationships appear throughout works labelled New Adult suggests that the pair go hand in hand. While “Fallen Too Far” didn’t reach the ...more

*4 Stars*

Fallen Too Far was an addictive read! The story picked up momentum immediately and never once faltered in its intensity.  Abbi has done an amazing job in taking a commonly used, but highly sought after plot—sexy bad-boy meets innocent virgin good-girl—and transforming it into something unique and genuine. 

After having lost everything important to her, Blaire reluctantly heads to her estranged father's house in search of shelter while she gets her life back on track.  What she encounters

2.5 stars. I didn't love it, but I certainly didn't hate it, either.

One of my main gripes about this book was the horribly bad editing. It was distracting and took away from the story. And the writing style certainly didn’t help. It was a little pedestrian, if I’m being honest. There were missing commas, run-ons, and sentences that read awkwardly enough to give me pause.

Don’t even get me started on the difference between action tags and dialogue tags, and how to properly punctuate them. You can

Wait, another book with an "innocent" girl and a guy who's played everyone? Isn't this like every other Glines book (at least the 6 or so others I've read)? I get formulas, but there comes a point where you have to write a DIFFERENT character type in order to prove that you are more than a one-trick pony. How about flipping this for once and giving us the experienced girl with the inexperienced guy?

Sigh. I was going to read this because I do like the sexual tension that Glines creates, but now I

This book is Blaire's story. I loved this chick the minute she pulled out her gun. Literally. She's strong, smart, independent and loving. But, unfortunately for Blaire, she's had to suffer through some pretty hor

This is the first book in a new series and it was…Spectacular! Fireworks! Explosions! Abbi Glines writes the steamiest, mature young adult romances that I have read.

I was young and extremely dumb when I rated this four stars back in 2013. Something made me think about this book just now in 2017 and I was completely cringing. Then I read my four star review and wanted to die. This is an extremely problematic book, with very unhealthy tropes, and I was such a terrible reviewer when I was younger.

Abbi Glines, you are my semi-guilty pleasure of the New Adult genre!! AWESOMELY HOT, bad-boy heroes. Explosive chemistry. Detailed and delicious sex scenes. Just enough angst to keep your emotions involved, but not rip your heart out and stomp on it. Woman, you ROCK!!

So, you have your typical over the top angsty teen stuff. Blaire is seriously beaten down-her sister died, her dad abandoned them, then her mom dies and Blaire is all alone. She turns to the father that left her but that only brings Rush and Nan into her life. Drama, drama, drama!
