Performing on stage in front of hundreds is easy for Dave, but the mere thought of Maggie sends his heart racing and turns him into a bumbling idiot. Even so, he can’t get her out of ...more

Another wonderful book by Jessica Calla about Sheridan Hall. I absolutely fell in love with She Laughs In Pink and Juliette and Chase. This book is about Maggie. She has her life planned out already and nothing is going to stop her from achieving her dreams. This book is also about Dave. He is in a band, which he loves, and he goes to school. He's not all that worried about the future and no one is going to make him change his ways. Or so they thought.

I enjoyed this book so much! I always like s

She Wants It All was the third book in the Sheridan Hall series and was my first book by Jessica Calla. I received an advanced copy for an honest review.

She Wants It All was told in the dual POV. It was well written with a well developed storyline and characters. It was sweet, cute, humorous, and a realistic description for the life of a college freshman.

I started this book as soon as it landed on my kindle and I couldn’t stop reading. I’m loving the series and all the students of Sheridan Hall. I couldn’t wait to read this book from the moment I knew it’s Dave and Maggie’s story. I adore Dave and Maggie together! I loved this book, just as much as She Runs Away.

Dave has a crush on Maggie for several months now and he’s so happy that he finally has a date with her. Maggie isn’t too sure about the da

Second Floor Dave - the cute, sweet, bumbling, hot, nerdy rockstar - won my heart as quickly as he wormed his way into Maggie's heart. Was there ever a more perfect man? I don't think so. From climbing into smelly dumpsters to rescue a cat to not batting an eye when she turns up looking like a hot mess, Dave passes every test with flying colors. I laughed my ass off reading this book. It was hilariously funny, and not what I was expecting at all, but that's exactly what I loved about it.

She Laughs In Pink and She Runs Away were so good, so I was really excited when I realized a new book was out in this series. And I've gotta say... She Wants It All may be my favorite one of them all! Jessica Calla's writing is so good. These stories are compelling with such rich and fun characters. I started this book yesterday afternoon... and then closed my Kindle at 1 am, book finished. I think I recall the other books being

If you are looking for a book that will make you smile the whole time you are reading it, you’ve come to the right place. SHE WANTS IT ALL is that book.

It’s light, easy to read, entertaining, and funny. I read it in about a day and a half. The characters are relatable, lovable, and stick with you long after finishing the book.

I love so many things about this book, but the thing that stuck out the most to me was Second Floor Dave

This book!!!! I love Jessica Calla's writing and have devoured every single one of her stories, but there's just something about Dave in this book that makes him extra swoony. This entire series is so amazing at really capturing true new adult and the thoughts and emotions that come with that time in our lives. They can be read as standalones, but I would highly recommend the entire Sheridan Hall series! Five stars!!! ...more

Second floor Dave is in love. Smitten. He can hardly speak around the woman who has captured his heart. Maggie lives in the basement of Sheridan Hall, and he's had his eye on her since he saw her feeding squirrels on campus. Only problem is that when he's around her, he's no longer "Dave the rock star." He turns into some other guy and can't speak, he's so enamored of her. The start of this book was so very sweet, with Dave trying to find his footing with Maggie.

Maggie likes Dave, but she's sti

Scoot over alpha Romeos because nerdy rockstars are taking the center stage!

Chase was a darling, Ben was McDreamy, but Second Floor Dave? He is a hot mess that Maggie and I melted into a puddle for.

He's charming me with his insecurities.

This one was both adorable and captivating. Remembering how Meg promised Second Floor Dave a date with Maggie in exchange for a ride, Dave’s about to collect. However, Dave, rumored to be a huge player, turns mute – stuttering at best – around Maggie whenever he gets a chance to speak to her.

Maggie, however, finds ways to get him to be himself and relax around her, and slowly falls in love with Dave.

Naturally, Winsdon, Maggie’s horrible ex (the one that dumped her post-coital on Valentine’s Day)

I love the Sheridan Hall series so far and hope to get more soon. This is a light hearted story mixed with the perfect amount of humor.

Second Floor Dave is by far my favorite hero of the series so far. He was so kind, sweet & genuine. I loved how his internal nerd shattered his cool confidence was gone when Maggie was near. Maggie likes Dave but, has no room in her life for distractions. She's solely focused on school and doesn't want to derail herself.

I love how each book bleeds into the other

It was my first Jessica Calla book and I am sure I will devour her previous stories like my favorite ice creams. Because I am addicted!

I really enjoyed this story. Dave completely stole my heart with his shyness. I wanted to hug him and kiss (and do some naughty things). But it was my first story where the hero was not so full of himself. There are a lot YA stories where a boy has to fight for the girl

I have enjoyed this entire series so far, but She Wants It All has been my favorite! And it's all due to our hero.

I thought I could love no other Jessica Calla character as much as Ben until I met David "Second Floor Dave" Novak! *swoon* Dave's been in the background in all the books in this series, but he moves center stage in book 3 and that is precisely where he deserves to be.

Sexy and confident on stage with is band and a big bundle of nervousness every time he's near our friend Maggie, Dave

Guys, my heart! The Sheridan Hall series just keeps getting better and better.
The third novel in the series, She Wants It All follows Maggie and Second Floor Dave. I did not know how much I needed this story in my life until I started reading and could not for the life of me put it down. I'm not going to lie, Dave is my favorite of the Sheridan Hall guys thus far.
This story starts off sweet and light but gets richer, deeper with every page. Jessica Calla wove an impressively fun yet flawed grou

She Wants It All (Sheridan Hall #3) is 2nd Floor Rockstar Dave Novak & Nerdy Magdalena (Maggie) Patrinski's love tale. I love this highly addictive series that captures the true essence of New Adult. Beautiful cover. I love Dave & Maggie together and they are totally swoon worthy. Told in dual pov which accentuates the tone and pace. I absolutely love the cameo appearances of Frank although I get all teary-eyed. A unexpected surprise plot twist that is quite a bombshell. So happy with how it end ...more

Definitely the best of the three so far. So many opportunities for a giggle, especially if you're a romance author yourself. The drawn-out teasing leading up to the first kiss was delightful, and there was so much packed into it. Definitely not your average romance novel.

‘She Wants It All’ by Jessica Calla is a great book filled with humour and one hot sexy lead that you will fall in love with. This is a 4 star read for me.

Both Dave and Maggie are likeable characters that you can relate to and have you wanting nothing but the best for them. Dave is a sexy rock star that when faced with the girl he has admired from afar becomes a bit of a bumbling fool that only endears him to your heart even more. Maggie is a smart, animal loving girl that like all of us loves r

Out of all the books I read, I very rarely read NA. Why? Mainly because I have a hard time finding ones that I like. I found that a lot of the NA books that I tried, had very little plot, and a lot of sex. And to me? I would rather have the plot that I get in YA, without the sex, than just a story filled with mindless sex. And I think that's why I love Calla's NA books so much. There is plot, and character development, and realistic romance. It isn't the typical NA romance, and I really like tha ...more

Jessica Calla is a new author to me, and is now on my favorites list. "She Wants It All", (#3 Sheridan Hall Series) is by far the best book on romance I have read for a while, and easily stands out as a must read. Eventhough I'm in my 40s and outside the target market, this college based romance had me hooked from the first page.

The Plot: Rockstar boy loves Animal loving girl from a far. They go out. Things get complicated. This series is heavy on plot. It's a tight story with twists and turns which all comes together nicely in the end.

The Characters: What can I say? I love Second Floor Dave. He's got the rockstar vibe mixed with a delightful stuttering shyness. I'm not sure that I believe that any guy would go to the effort of reading a romance novel, bu

This is such a great series! It's hard to believe that so much happened to these kids in one year of college. But they have become a family through all the tragedy of their first semester. This book wasn't as light-hearted as book 2, but it was fun and entertaining and full of angst and heartbreak and love.
This part of the story revolved around Maggie and "Second Floor Dave". Maggie is a romantic at heart, but also a tough girl who pushes herself and is more than capable of getting almost anyth

This is a very realistic story with issues that happen today. I love the dual POV and to see the back and forth romance blossoming. Dave is the carefree, live in the moment type of guy while Maggie is a go-getter with many plans for the future. The pull and tug between them and the stress of everyday life causes their relationship to be put to the test. In the end Maggie has to decide does wanting it all include Dave? I'd say yes! ...more

I really like this book. I was a little hesitant with how young the characters were but their stories blossomed and I like the way the side stories were expressed as well. I’d recommend for sure.
