Then she meets Cain Dorsey and the education she gets is so much more.
Living her new life, one she never dreamed of, Flannery ...more
My Rating: 3 Stars
Up For Grabs (the first installment in the Up For Grabs series) was an incredibly funny, light NA read!
The story follows Flannery Tate, a college student just trying to make a better life for herself, who happens to find love along the way!
When Flannery is grouped with a beautifully buff, chocolate-brown eyed wonder in one of her classes, she's intrigued. And so is he.
Cain Dorsey has had his eye on Flann
I had a block, did not know what I wanted to read after my last emotional one, so my bestie gal pal suggested Up For Grabs. See was totalllly freaking out after suggesting it, but babe seriously, so far you've scored a 100%. Yayness.
Flannery meets Cain in school, they are in the same study group and she slowly realizes that he's totally into her. Flannery has a few set of rules, she abides by them because her mom has made sure she knew these rules by heart. Mom has a p ...more
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
Omg! This book. The story was so sweet.
Super normal girl, Flannery, meets super normal guy, Cain, in college.
The writer did an incredible job by describing the way they fell in love along the story.
This is a normal story, about two too real people. The thing that kept me reading was that she is the one that sort of complicates their relationship and tries to make things go back to normal.
Flannery is described as ...more
First, Cain Dorsey is my new book boyfriend. Though I definitely never met any guy so patient and understanding when I was in college! But, I <3 him!
Our heroine, Flannery won my heart as well. She is so feisty; I enjoyed it!
Up for Grabs is lighthearted and funny. I really enjoyed the brotherly/sisterly relationship between Flannery and her friend Adam. That felt ...more
I couldn't read this through. At about 5% I basically starting skipping around it just to see if the writing was getting any better... and it wouldn't. I really thought the writing in this was terrible in terms of character development and plot.
* With this book.
* With Flannery and
* Definitely Cain!
Flannery is my hero. She's strong, sassy, funny, sarcastic and quirky.
Cain is very high up in book boyfriends for me now! If only we all met a man like him in college! So protective, sexy, thoughtful, sweet, kind and he's a giver. ;)
Up For Grabs is sweet read and there's some sexy in it.
It's light (but still sad at times) and funny. Oh, was it funny! I literally laughed out loud at times. I even copied sentences to share w ...more
Far from home doing a scholarship .. money doesn't come easy fr her and her mum . No dad in the picture .

Here we have Flannery; who has been brought up by a single mom has worked really hard to secure her scholarship so that her mom doesn't have to worry about her. So much so that, she is an innocent when it comes to relationships. Then she runs into Cain - who has been living a cushy life - where they go from project mates to a slow build up of attraction. I love the small moments between them ...more
“I’m Flannery Tate, resident strumpet and overall painted woman.”
I got excited when I read the synopsis. I like Flannery's humor. She has a quick wit and I definitely like her personality. What I don't like about her is her being irrational at some point.
I don't know if it just me but the story was very slow but not until maybe after Chapter 17 that it became exciting. I somewhat dragged myself to finish this because I can ...more
So my problem with this one is the heroine, Flannery.
On what planet would a smart person, who happens to be in a monogamous relationship think she could sale her virginity to the highest bidder and 1. Her boyfriend not find out or be okay with it if he did, 2. Everyone not find out about it, 3. Not consider that banks or wealthy friends (or boyfriends) might be a more reasonable (sensible) place to start since they might loan you the money, or 4. Get a ...more
Flannery Tate's character is compelling, sassy, witty, sarcastic, sagacious and beautiful inside and out. Cain Dorsey is a fabulous book boyfriend. His character is so sweet, kind & thoughtful, charming, sexy as hades, and the perfect book boyfriend.
Up For Grabs is a sweet & sexy witty rea ...more
I was surprised at how intriguing this book turned out to be. NA/YA books can sometimes be a chore to read, but this one wasn't.
Even though everything in the end tied up a little too neatly, I couldn't find myself hating the way things turned out for Flannery and Cain.
Definitely recommend this book for lovers of angsty, dramatic NA/YA romances.
Quickly reading the synopsis of the book, I was not really into the book. It seemed like it was a bland and easy story. And it was BUT the way the author pulled you in and made you fall in love with the characters was worth the quick read :)
I loved the relationship between Cain and Flannery. She really needed and wanted the education but also wanted the relationship with Cain to work out.
I am a big fan of this author. She writes fun to read stories that are fresh and full of surprises. I've fallen in love with these characters now and can't wait to see what comes next in this series!
This is book would be a great addition to your book collection.
This book was very good and gives you something to think about. Should you really judge someone if you have not walked in that person's shoes? The characters are very relatable and easy to get to know. I'd recommend this book to young adults that's who this book is geared at really.
I loved this book!!!!!! I couldn't put it down. I stayed up late into the night reading until I couldn't keep my eyes open. Then finished as soon as I woke up. The side characters are hilarious. It really was a great read.
