Where have I been? I didn’t know how much I was missing out in this Blythe College series by Rochelle Paige. Outside the Box is the first book that I have read from this author and I can happily attest this won’t be the last. Rochelle Paige has me wanting more from the Blythe College cast. What I truly love about this series is that Ms. Paige made each book of the Blythe College series can be read as a st

Another sexy and sweet story by an author I just can't get enough of. Luka.. just divine.. so amazing. Aubrey was so surprisingly genuine.. after getting into her head.. she was just totally not what I expected. I am so happy to have finally experienced all of these amazing characters and swooned over some awesome growly possessive alphas.
It has been interesting to see Aubrey change over the series. Her self imposed dating ban seemed to be a good thing for her, helped her realize what was really important. I liked that she was determined to go into the family business and worked to be the best at it.

Luka's introduction made me feel sorry for him. It had to suck to learn that about a long time girlfriend, but he's better off for being shot of her. I wasn't sure about Luka with Aubrey, not sure that they would be a good match, but

I am so glad I got into this series. I'm really enjoying this. It satisfies my occasional need for college romance perfectly. Easy, fast, enjoyable reads that sizzle.

Outside the Box is Luka & Aubrey's story. I've been looking forward to Aubrey's story from the start. She's Lexi's gorgeous girlfriend (from book 1) who doesn't do relationships. I loved her colorful character and how she was there for Lexi always. And she didn't disappoint m

So in love with this series! Drake starts it out as the ultimate badass possessive dude, but Luka may have beat him in that category! I love the progression of characters, new characters introduced, & I absolutely adore Aubrey & Luka! They're both attracted to the other, but cautious due to their pasts. When they each decide to go for it... yay!

This story is hot but sweet, & left me with a super happy smile! Definite 5++ story, keeper, re-read. and it will make a great recovery book, because th

These books just keep getting better and better! I loved all the characters, but Luka is by far my favorite so far he is so damn sexy and sweet! I'm sad that this series only has one novella left. Definitely a must read!

I love the relationship building. Luka is alpha hotness! I couldn't put it down.
Easy and fun. Low on drama.

About This Book:

This is the third novella in the Blythe College series. I have a tendency to read the most recently released book in a series first so I jumped on this without reading the previous two books and I can safely say that this novella could be read as a stand-alone.

So, what's this story about?

Aubrey is the serial dater, always jumping from one relationship to another because all the guys she has dated never seem like the one to her so she doesn't waste her time with them. During her

OMG, wow! It broke my heart as soon as I got to the first page. Cheaters I definitely hate and to be with someone for four years is kind of hard specially if it's a long distance kind of relationship. I've never been on one, but from witnessing it, I wouldn't do it, even if it kills me. I'd like to have my other half with me all cuddled up, spooning and all. This story had my heart in my throat

Aubrey wanted to change from her old ways. She used to be a serial dater, she’d love the rush of the early stages of a relationship, but once the rush is gone, and she’d leave them. It took one awful pregnancy scare to make her change her ways. She decided to make school her first priority, and stop dating. She was successful in doing so, until she bumps into Luka. Her math tutor.

Where is this Blythe College and how can I get in? After reading the first two books in the series and now the third book Outside The Box I feel like I truly missed out on my true College experience. This book was everything you could expect from a Rochelle Paige book. A pure alpha male, strong determined heroine, and a whole bunch of laughter and good times in between. If you weren't a fan of hockey you might be now. Luka the Russian in descent male lead was the star player for Blythe College a

Outside the Box, Book Three, is Aubrey and Luca’s story – the serial dater who has never truly invested her heart in any relationship and the man who spent five years with the same girl only to find out she had been cheating on him. On paper, they don’t seem compatible; in fact, Aubrey’s reputation deters Luca from pursuing anything with her, but sometimes, the best decision seems like the wrong one, and for Aubrey and Luca, putting their hearts on the line ultimately gives them what they’ve alw ...more

I have to say that I absolutely loved Outside the Box! It was so great to jump in again with the characters from Blythe College, and this book did not disappoint.

This book tells the story of Aubrey who we met in Push the Envelope. I have always loved Aubrey's character, so I was happy to finally get to read her story! Aubrey was a vibrant and truly engaging character to read, and it was fantastic to understand her more in this book. At the beginning of this book, Aubrey is still on her self imp

This book was so good and I am so sad to see this series end. This is one of the best college romance series out there. This author writes books about a circle of friends that are sexy, sweet, lightly angsty, and have that one alpha male that can bring women to their knees.

This is Aubrey and Luka's story.

Luka is a hockey player who is recently out of a long term relationship. After being cheated on, he is mending his broken heart and staying away from any type of relationship or

Outside the Box is a great read. It is the third book in the Blythe College series. I have read the first two in the series and loved them. This one did not disappoint me and I loved it too. Aubrey is in the first two book as a minor character. This book focuses and her and Luca. It can be read as a standalone.

Luca is a great character. What's not to love about him. He was in a long term relationship and he stayed faithful while they were doing the long distance relationship thing. It was his e

This is the 3rd instalment of Blythe College, This story follows Luca and Aubrey, I love this series, but got to admit this is my favourite.
They both have to learn to trust again.

Outside the Box was another hit from Rochelle Page. Book Three, is Aubrey and Luka’s story. This time it is Luka who is the wounded soul. He has spent the last 5 years dating a girl, who he thought was "the one" only to find out she was cheating on him the entire time.

Aubrey is known as the "serial dater", not because she sleeps around, but because she doesn't have any connection with her dates. She is truly looking for "the one".

So when Aubrey needs help in math, he tutor turns out to be the o

I don't think Rochelle could have written a better story for Aubrey... There was just enough drama to make you want to find out what happens next but not enough to be over the top... I am sad there is only one more novella left for the Blythe group, I have enjoyed all their stories and would love to hear more about their futures... Also, I thought I lived Drake but seriously Luka melted my heart each time he spoke in Russian!

Aubrey and Luka have a chemistry that they can't even stop . When Aubrey has some trouble with her math she goes to look for a tutor little did she know that the tutor that she would end up would be hockey god Luka the only guy she hasn't been able to get out of her head since she has meet him . I cant wait for the next one in this series to see what trouble this gang will get into

I truly enjoy Luka and Aubrey story. He was almost as domineering as Drake but the Russian words during sex was just sexy.

I so thought the worse when he went down on the ice but I am happy it all worked out in the end. Lucy was just too cute and funny. I also learned something new, grapefruits hmmm...

I am on to the spin-off.

This is a series and I recommend that it be read in order but does not have to be. Love this author! Her books are amazing! Well written and full of HOT, steamy drama! Loved how two people can overcome their past to give love a chance!
