I can’t stop wanting her…

Bri Welch likes to play it safe. I don’t. She’s wound tight, and I’m all about a good party. But there’s something about her that makes me want to pull those uptight layers away one-by-delicious-one. But the worst thing is she makes me want more…

***4 "Judgemental" stars***



This was a really good story, even though it was a little bit predicted..
But i really enjoyed the ride...
At the beginning it filled me with excitement and it made me laugh out loud...

But then the things turned out more serious and the angst surrounded me...
And then came the anger.... (God, i was so furious with Bri!!! I wanted to slap her very bad!!!) and the heartbreaking especially for Josh's behalf...

But let me take the things from the beginning...

I really enjoyed Wanting More.

The storyline was entertaining, the characters were fun, relatable and very likable.

Josh was funny, cute, sexy and a real sweetheart. I loved how he would push/dare/encourage Bri to live a little and not be so rigid with everything in her life.
Bri found it difficult at first and I have to admit she did annoy me a little with her judgemental comments she threw Josh's way but eventually she realised life without Josh wasn't the life she wanted. She loved him a

Joshua Davidson (Josh) is a happy go lucky undergraduate in danger of being dismissed from the university if he doesn’t up his grades and efforts. After six different majors in two years he’s been sent to be given extra support whilst on academic probation. When he meets his academic counsellor he’s in for a surprise - mind you, so is she! Brianna Welch (Bri) is a focussed workaholic, determined to achieve, his antithesis perhaps? Despite that they are both attracted to the other, even if reluct ...more

description

I’m a huge fan of contemporary romances with a college setting – probably because it was less time ago than the whole high-school thing :). So, when I saw this book one netgalley, my finger flew to the request button. It helps that the blurb is the most vague thing ever!

The book is told in alternating POVs, and it’s on first person – and I’m crazy about first person POV because the books are usually funnier, and this was true here. This book is funny! So, that’s a huge thing

This is the first book by Jessica Ruddick that I’ve read but after this I’ll want to read more of her books. I really enjoyed this books and the characters. Bri is a 22 year-old and knows what she wants to do with her life. In the other hand, Josh is a 21 year-old that has no idea what to do and that doesn’t have the motivation to care about school. You can see that these two have everything to go wrong but when they meet they challenge each other to be better and I re

Wanting More is the second book I've read by Jessica Ruddick and definitely won't be the last.

On the surface Josh and Bri's story seems like the typical bad boy meets good girl new adult novel, but there's a lot more to the story than you originally think. Josh likes to put on a good show of not caring, but when we read the story through his POV we realize that isn't true. Josh does care. A lot. He just didn't have the motivation to follow through before now, and I liked that Bri wasn't the mai

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! The characters were great; I liked how they grew and developed throughout the novel, and how although they do lean on each other for support, they are still able to keep their independence. The character development for the minor characters are commendable as well. It was a bit predictable but if you've read too many books with similar stories then that wouldn't

Josh is an undergraduate college “bad boy” who enjoys women and parties. His grades have been slipping and he finds himself on academic probation. He is forced to meet with a counselor. He never expects a young woman, Bri, to walk in with her conservative pantsuit looking “hot”. Graduate student, Bri, has her goals set and is working hard towards finishing college to become a full time academic advisor. To finish, she has a job as an ac

What happens when the socially awkward, nerdy grad student falls for the extroverted goofball frat boy? A lot of sweetness, a fair amount of swoon laced with generous portions of angst and some plot twists that I didn’t see coming.

This book took me on a little bit of a rollercoaster ride—not necessarily because the highs and lows within the book were so pronounced, but because my feelings about the book itself varied widely from chapter to chapter. I struggled with Bri's character, mainly. She'

Wanting More is a sweet, cliche story that will make you smile hard when you finish reading it.
Although, it was kind of predictable this book was really funny and entertaining!
Josh is a student that has lost the motivation he had through college. He's in his third year, but yet he hasn't decided a major and basically he's living the good life with parties and girls.
But then he receives a wake-up call and he gets an academic counselor, Bri, her job is help him to fix what is not going well with

Amber .:★Wild Heart Reviews★:.
Wanting More by Jessica Ruddick is one of those novels that is middle of the road for me. There is nothing wrong with it, it is well-written with a great plot… for me personally, however, nothing stands out that I can gush about. It has an HEA, no cliffy, can be read as a standalone and is told from a first person point of view.

You have a female authority figure. A woman who knows her mind and what she wants. But she’s always so serious and takes life that way too. If you looked at Bri’s planner

This was a great book. Josh and Bri are polar opposites yet they work so well.

Josh gets put on academic probation, and Bri is the tutor/counselor assigned to him. They immediately get on each others nerves. This is actually quite funny because Josh is deliberately pushing Bri's buttons and he's a smart ass character, but in a good way.

Of course, one thing leads to another and they begin to get to know each other. W

This is an awesome NA read that grabbed my attention from the very first page. The story has a great flow and the character development is excellent. Josh and Bri's story might seem like the typical bad boy/ good girl storyline but underneath there is so much more to these characters. He's the quintessential slacker in college where she's the over achiever, together they bring a balance to each other that they have both struggled to find.

This is the second in the series but in no way do you hav

This was a pretty fun story, with a Little bit of everything: love, friendship, drama, sexing, and more.

We have Bri on one side, a girl with a plan for pretty much the rest of her life, lol. I liked her focus, but this girl really needed to take a break. It’s great to plan and achieve those goals, but her present was wasting away while focus was on her future.

On the other side, we have Josh, a guy with absolutely no focus whatsoever. And even though he made a joke of things, you could

For Bri life is all about safety. She never does anything she hasn't thought through entirely, she studies hard, she doesn't party and she has a wall around her heart, so she won't get hurt. She works as an academic counsellor and she's studying hard for her degree. Josh is one of the students on probation and Bri has to help him with his grades. He doesn't know which major he wants to take, he likes to be free and to live. He's impulsive and doesn't think things through at all. They're each oth ...more

An amazing romance novel! Even though I'm not fan of a stories which revolve around college students but this one was an exception. It is cute, interesting, and funny story about a guy who doesn't take life seriously and a girl who does exactly the opposite. They are too different and yet some how a perfect match.
Josh is a non-serious student. It's not that he isn't intelligent, the problem is that he isn't motivated. For him college life is all about girls and parties. So it is no wonder that n

A sweet & romantic read from Jessica Ruddick.

A college bad boy (Josh) falling for two goody shoes (Bri) - you might think the plot has been rehashed, but you're in for a surprise! The book was hot and steamy and Josh does have a way with words!

Though Josh has never been in a serious relationship, he got everything right with Bri from the starting, was patient, thoughtful and sweet to her. But Bri - not so much! However, considering how she's orderly and always goes with a "plan" we can unde

This story started a little slow for me but once it picked up, it was a great read.

Bri is a bit uptight and maybe too focused on her future and what comes next. Sometimes you have to live in the moment and just enjoy life too. Enter Josh, the problem student who is the exact opposite of Bri in that he strictly spends his time enjoying the moments, to the point it's become a detriment to his future. Which is why he meets Bri in the first place.

There's an instant attraction between the

They collide at a very inopportune time but end up making the best out of the situation. They stumble upon this deep but surprising love that neither of them think will work out.

Me aburrió. La relación entre Bri y Josh pasó de "me eres indiferente cuando no te soporto" a "modo compromiso" de un segundo a otro. Después, pelean por algo verdaderamente estúpido, se arreglan, y el libro termina en la forma más molesta que se le podría haber ocurrido a la autora.

Bri is very stuffy and plays everything safe. She is also pretty judgemental and very self doubting. she meets Josh (swoon) when she becomes his academic counselor. Before she even knows him she has him judged. After meeting Josh her thoughts aren’t much better. She thinks he is a slacker. One not really worth her time outside of the office and to be embarrassed by.

New Adult Romance by Jessica Ruddick, WANTING MORE, left me literally wanting…. Maybe I should’ve known based on the synopsis that this book would be really superficial, but it had your average New Adult Romance synopsis, and it sounded decent, so I figured I’d try it. I think the biggest problem for me wasn’t the overdone character memes–your screw-off, cocky college boy meets uptight, responsible girl. I can handle the generic characters. I can handle insta-love, even. After all, rea

This was definitely a book about how much opposites attract to one another. Jessica Ruddick did a great job of showing how these two characters could be so different from one another but somehow make their union work really well together.

We meet Brianna who is a young graduate student working as an academic advisor. She’s very put together and by the book. That is until she meets Josh. The troublemaker with no aspirations in life and no set goals yet, her complete opposite. He’s in a fraternity

Love isn’t an equation. It’s not always going to balance perfectly. It’s not always rational.

Ok so, I liked this book and I bet it's because of Josh, I mean I loved that boy since the first book... He's my type lol He reminded me of Dean from Off-Campus series.
What I liked about this book is that he was more into their relationship than Bri.

Josh and Bri's story was a really good one, with both of them doing their fair share of growing up and maturing. I loved Josh and felt that he was misunderstood, pegged as a slacker who partied too much and hopped from one girl's bed to another. He lacked direction but does that automatically make him a bad guy? Certainly not, which is why there were countless
