Four guys.

Constant moaning.

And a revolving door across the college suite I somehow ended up in because my first name is Shawn.

They don't discriminate. Girls. Guys. Grandmas. Plants (okay maybe not plants) all walks of life stroll in stressed to the brim, and leave so satisfied I'm wondering what sort of talents lie behind that door.

It's a sad day when you realize that you're starting to fall out of love with a favorite author. Unfortunately, it feels like that is what is happening to me. I don't know if maybe she's pushing herself too hard to be an author that writes across multiple genres, or if my expectations of her are too high, or if she's just feeling burned out. But as of late I have divided my love of her books into "Old Rachel" and "New Rachel", but more on that in a minute.

i dont want to exist on an astral plane where black women are fetishized and their skin is referred to as chocolate milk

this was baaaaaad. i got 60% into it and i still don't know when the plot starts. it seemed to me that it probably just never does.

in essence: 3 dudes on campus referred to as, and i quote, THE PLEASURE PONIES are responsible for healing women after break ups by massaging, offering sweet words, but (again, i quote) NEVER PENETRATING. all of this so that they can get these women

Another one bites the dust...

I loved the first Wingmen book and really liked the second one. After these two I'd tried some more books from RvD, but they were all not for me. It's the same with this one.

Where the original Matchmaker was charming, Co-Ed is ridiculous.

The book is sexist, illogical and I wanted to throw it out of the window (I would never do that, an e-reader is expensive) when one of the guys watches the h while she's in the shower. She is okay with that. There is no better

I honestly don't know why i read this. I saw a one star review of this book on my page and decided to check the book out. I think am too curious for my own good.

It's not a terrible book but it wasn't amazing either. It was full of cliches like the hot roommates, and a girl with a guys name etc. I like that the guys were not completely steroetypical.

One of the reasons I liked this book was for it's diversity. The lead female is an african american, 6feet tall and is an athlete.

There were times I was into this story and times when it just didn’t meet my expectations. It might very well be a case of “it’s not you, it’s me” but that was my personal experience.

I liked the intimacy and connection that wasn’t sexual. It was refreshing. However, there are certain boundaries that you respect with strangers you are meeting for the very first time that were breached in an attempt to perhaps be funny.

After the big climax, there is something very specific that the heroine does t

RVD is a fairly new author to me, as I only started reading her books last year. But, as I have come to expect, she never lets me down, and this book was no exception.

I really enjoyed this one, and I sped through it in less than 24 hours. It’s one of my first forays into anything like a reverse harem style of story, and let me tell you, RVD has done this so well. I loved these characters. Every. Single. One. Even grumpy old Knox a

This book! Starting it, I thought I’d be in for a cute, fun, and of course, RVD spectacular story. It had so much more depth & led me on an amazing rollercoaster of feelings. With Rachel’s author note, I didn’t know what to think. I love my reverse harem (in a more popular sense), but having her take on it, was just as special. This book was everything I needed and totally blew my expectations out of the water. It didn’t feel like a regular Rachel Van Dyken book, I don’t know how to explain it. ...more

Oh my gosh I'm gonna try and put into words about how much i loved this without giving to much away, So first it's not your normal take on a reverse harmen, This is Rachel's version and i swear it's so so good, Knox, Leo and Finn were so much fun getting to know. And the story itself was just, well i started and then found i couldn't stop reading. So if your looking for a new take on a RH then please give this a go, it's so good. ...more

Loving the original Wingman Inc. series as much as I did, I couldn’t wait to start this spin-off! You know when you’re reading a book and you find yourself smiling? Well, that was this book. But there’s a whole other element to this story, so much more going on than meets the eye, so much more than the witty banter, and I kept trying to piece together just what that was! I was curious, so so curious...I couldn’t put it down.

This is so not what I expected Jesus what a ride! This author sure knows how to wrap you up in a story and not let you go until the end!! I loved the hero of this story so much! My heart aches for him, but I loved how their relationship developed and how good it turned out to be! It was an amazing story for sure!

This has been on my TBR forever but I just never felt in the mood for a reverse harem story. Now that I've read it I can say it really wasn't reverse harem. And while I liked a lot of things about this book I just felt like it was a little too secrets and daggers for what I was expecting.

I really hate when people keep secrets that are public knowledge to everyone else. Obviously it's going to come out at an inopportune moment and cause a heap of drama so just man up and spit it out. Knox ran a l

A sweet rom-com college romance!

Spoilers ahead!

I have been a fan of Rachel Van Dyken for a long time, and the Wingman Inc. is one of my favorite romantic comedy series ever, so of course, I had to read this! Co-Ed is a standalone novel but also a spin-off on the Wingman Inc. series. It's inspired by reverse harem books, but not as sexual, and it's also an interracial romance!

I don't know if it's necessary to have read the Wingmen books, but I feel like I would have had a better understanding of some things going into this book. I mean, I thought the whole concept of these three guys was odd, and I know there are professional cuddlers and whatnot, but it was still a little odd for me. The saving grace was that I actually liked the guys, liked the heroine, enjoyed many of their interactions, and was interested in finding out what happened three years ago. The mystery ...more

Rachel has a way of bringing you in and surprising you. This new book is just as amazing as anything else she has wrote. We get to meet the new faces of Wingman Inc and get a glimpse into someone's struggle. Even though there is very real problems in this story Rachel brings it to light in a lighthearted way. It's not too heavy and the book still has her signature humor. I loved this book and I'm sad I finished it already. ...more

When Shawn finds herself sharing a dorm at college with a male she isn't surprised at all because she always gets took for the male species because of her boyish name. Then she hears the moaning behind the opposite door that sounds very like group fornicating, Shawn is intrigued and immediately wants to know whats going on behind that door. Shawn's roommate Slater doesn't do very much explaining on the matter but instead tells her to stay clear of the 3 men behind that door.

What an amazing book and these guys let me tell you I felt like I really had some best friends while I only reading it only to be disappointed when it was over and realize they were just characters in a book. I cannot get enough of them I'm really hoping I get to read more of them soon.

Right from the start, Co-ed hooked and entangled me in an addictive story! Not once did I put it down since starting, and that's a real inconvenience when you decide to do that at 11pm.
Reverse harem... I'm so obsessed, especially when RVD weaves her own style through it, and most of the time left me wanting and breathless and absolutely giddy.
There's depth to this fun and steamy read, and I absolutely loved it

Another RVD book that’s a hit!!! Co-ed by Rachel Van Dyken is a spinoff of the Matchmaker series and so in this book RVD once again writes a story that engages her readers to a fun, playful and entertaining read. This book had the right amount of humor, raw emotions, and romance. So if you are looking for a fun college romance comedy then this book is for you.

Holy Smokes – that is one seriously HOT book! Rachel Van Dyken is the queen of Mafia romance and the queen of Romantic Comedy, but Co-Ed is a bit of a different style – a little RomCom with some serious weaved throughout. There is a connection between this book and Wingmen, Inc. and a few familiar faces make an appearance in the book - but Co-Ed is a complete stand-alone and you do not need to read the Wingmen, Inc series first.

This book is somewhat different other RVD books in that it starts wi

Another cute light-hearted read from RVD.

After seeing the synopsis, I admit to being a little apprehension. I've read harem books in the past and was always left heartbroken. Rest assured, the heroine, Shawn only has one love interest. The other guys in the book are friendly in nature, although I didn't quite grasp some aspects of their relationships with Shawn. Knox was more of a grouchy bear, but I enjoyed the chemistry between he and Shawn. There is plenty of banter and silly antics
