I just love this series. It's short, sweet, and so much fun. Seeing Noelle and Andy again, happy and lovey-dovey, was a nice bonus. In Behind Closed Doors, we get to follow Julia this time, who was such a riot in the first book of the series. Where Noelle was the "good girl," Julia was more of the wild one.

After spending the summer as the third wheel to Noelle and Andy, Julia is ready for a cutesy relationship of her own. Or at a minimum a hot distraction from Noelle and Andy. She gets bold and

Noelle has Andy and Julia, well Julia is the third wheel, but she wants nothing more than to have what Noelle has. Someone to go out with, someone to cuddle with, someone to be with, someone like Darren; the bartender she meets one night while playing the third wheel. Now she is over the heels and over head with Darren. Things are complicated and sticky, but Julia is determined to make things work.

Julia wants things to work with Darren. He has changed all her preconceived notions on dating and m

Not being a reader who is easily won over with contemporary romance genres, I found Behind Closed Door a nice, easy-to-read novel that definitely held my interest. The story line was well thought out, and the challenges and dilemma were definitely fresh and intriguing.

However, truthfully, I really was not impressed with the main character, Julia. She really came off desperate throughout the novel. For example, despite the fact that she found out Darren was her TA and off limits, she still plunge

One word to describe this book:


First of all, this isn't a novel, but rather a novella. It's short, simple and sweet. It was only 268 pages in my iBooks app.

The plot was cute interesting. However, the only thing that really bugged me was how simple the conflict or climax was resolved. It didn't have the big intensity and passion I had hoped it would have. The story was short so there wasn't much plot, but there definitely was action and cuteness. It was kind of awkward or so I thought whe

It's a tad to insta and uber-fast for me. Oh and add to that kinda obsessive and rather melodramatic. But it's well written and I keep hoping for more... so I keep reading these!

Ashelyn has a knack for romance and creating situations with characters we can identify with. Julia is tired of not having someone to hold her hand, she wants what her best friend has. I have definitely felt like the third wheel and yearned for what my friends had regarding romance.

I noticed some similarities with the mocha cake and the yogurt scene from Romancing the R.A., but that might've stood out more for me since I read them back-to-back.

Julia also felt like a different person in this sto

Julia meets Darren at a pub. One thing leads to another and she winds up at his place. She never meant for anything serious to happen, but her feelings towards Darren are undeniable. Several problems arise. First, she led him to believe she’s older than she really is—she’s a freshman, not the grad student he thinks she is—and she receives a shock in class when she sees Darren emerge behind her professor as a T.A. Teacher assistants aren’t supposed to be dating students. They can both get into se ...more

I loved it. Short but so good!
Cute and quick read

Not much to say. It was a quick, easy read. It didn't dive very deep, but it entertained me enough.

Not a novel... A short novella... I'm not sure what to think of this. The writing is decent and the storyline is okay, but went into this thinking it was a full length novel... Has potential.
