COMING JUNE 12, 2019

I was nine years old when I met Everett Cartwright and claimed him as my best friend.
I was sixteen years old when I gave him my virginity.
Now, at twenty, the lines of our friendship have blurred as our relationship shifts into something different.
Something deeper.
It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for my best friend.

I love, love, love how this book is not your typical friends to lovers romance.
Leighton and Everett have tons of chemistry (not the class) and the sexy times are off the charts. And in what is becoming true QB Tyler fashion, there are unpredictable twists in their story.
One of the many things that I loved about this book are the friendships that you see. Everett has two great friends and roommates in Dave and Pat. Leighton has Skyler and Peyton, who you might remember from First Semester. Thei

I'm completely head over heels in love with Everett and Leighton!  
Spring Semester was another addictive admission to a highly-addictive Series!
I read this within hours this is a testament to
QB Tyler writing and how her words suck you in and leave you not only SPEECHLESS but SPELLBOUND!

This was such a Compelling and Griping story a highly octane page turner!!

This is hands down one of my favorite NA Romance books to Date!

“5 stars!”

With QB, you expect taboo or an age gap romance. This time she knocks it out of the park with a friends-to-lovers romance. Is there anything she can't do? I think not. I love how versatile she is as an author. This book is filled with great banter, heartfelt emotions, characters you can't help but root for, and characters you want to strangle. Spring Semester was an unexpected roller coaster ride of emotions, and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

Spring Semester is unlike the other two books in this standalone series, who have two heroines in college and fall into a forbidden spellbinding love with their much older partners! Spring Semester is a best friends to lovers romance that will HAVE YOU HOOKED.

It tells a tale of two people who have been the best of friends since childhood, grown up together, and are so deeply and irrevocably in love with each other.

But what’s the catch? Because there’s always a catch in being

Oh My Wow!!
So, I’m really used to pretty large age gaps in QB’s main characters. So I wasn’t quite sure if I would experience the same super hotness level I am used to in her books or if this one would be a bit on the tamer side due to the main characters both being twenty.
However... Jear Desus was I ever pleasantly surprised!! So Everett and Leighton were White Hot 🔥off.the.charts! They were sizzling in the sheets, Y’all. I mean, legit! I’m talking, my butter just melted off my biscuit!! Ya g

I always love jumping into one of Q.B. Tyler’s books, she knows exactly what to write to attract her readers and every time she does it with style. As soon as I heard that she was writing another book in her A Campus Tales Story Series, I was completely excited and ready to get my hands on the book there and then. Yet again, Q.B has done an incredible job and has written such a breathtakingly college romance book that you can’t help but fall in love with. It’s got everything you look for in a bo ...more

Unlike in the first two Campus Tales wherein we got to meet two college student heroines whose respective boyfriends are waaay much older and wiser than them, Spring Semester tells the college story of two childhood sweethearts, Leighton and Everett, who are madly in love yet too afraid to formally commit to one another.

And yes, you read the blurb right—they are in a “not-so-serious-relationship” with other people while messing around in college. Maybe it is karma coming after them given the shi

Addictive since the first chapter. A breathtaking romance that leads you into an emotional rollercoaster. A "secretly love my best friend" not so common story, one that will make you fell head over heels in love with it.

I was drawn instantly by Q.B.’s fascinating writing skills, she knows exactly how to keep you on edge with a slightly combination of love and hotness.

People say that a best friend is the one that can see behind your mask, that one person that knows you more than yourself, but w

I love a good forbidden romance and student/teacher romances are kind of my jam. Friends to lovers? I drool for a good book featuring those tropes. So when I saw Q.B. Tyler had a book with ALL these tropes releasing I basically begged her to send me an ARC. I’m so glad I did.

Everett and Leighton were on fire. These two had so much freaking sizzle and sparks happening they almost short circuited my Kindle. Everett is all things I look for in a book boyfriend: intense, commanding, and hot! Leight

I am not a newbie to all things QB Tyler, nor do I want to be. With every book she writes, every story she pens, she keeps me enthralled and fascinated with her characters and words. Her writing takes me to the exact setting she depicts. I am with the characters as they stroll through campus hand in hand or having a full blown out fight that breaks our hearts. The best part? You know the ending will be epic and your heart will squeal and swell at the outcome of their story.

QB Tyler is a new to me author but what I’ve read from her so far has been really good and hot as hell but I’m struggling with whether I liked Spring Semester or not because I know for a fact that I loved First Semester and Second Semester..that whole Forbidden/age gap and Student/Teacher romance really does it for me.

I don’t want to get into too much detail because I don’t want to spoil it. I liked the best friends-to-lovers-in-college story. Eve

Is there anything QB can't do.
In Spring Semester QB tackles the friends to lovers romance trope delivering the steam, romance and chemistry she is known for. However, in this tale of college romance, she adds a heaping scoop of angst. One of the best things about the entire Campus Tales series is QB doesn't mess around. Every story starts at 110 miles an hour. She not so much pushes you into the deep end of the pool, as its more like tossing you out of an airplane without a parachute. By the en

Young love is my favorite love. It's pure and unrefined. It's the kind of love that hurts because you don't know who you are yet, only what the other person means to you. With any luck, they feel the same. Lots of times they don't, but on occasion, first loves can be last loves.

Everett and Leighton are flawed. They are young and immature, but they love each other so deeply it hurts. They can't express it. They are afraid that exploring a romantic relationship would ruin their platonic one, and

Q.B does it again. Leighton and Everett made me feel so any things like there wasn't enough time to process one feeling before another one popped in.

You have a fountain of gold Q.B your stories are truly amazing roller coasters that I will keep coming back to. Friends to Lovers is always a soft spot for me but boy does this one have some curveball thrown I there and can I just those friends of there's gave me some true LOL moments.

Everett and Leighton are so important to each other. They've been in love with each other since they were little. Best friends navigating life not wanting to rock their friendship, but as they go through college, they realize they can't fight their feelings. Once they declare their love, some issues arise, testing their love and friendship.

It was absolutely heartbreaking seeing these two having no contact with each other during those hard times. It was like a missing limb. They were each others

Uhhhhhh. Everytime I fall in love with a set of characters QB throws me another set to fall in love with. I can’t get enough.

This isn’t your high school sweetheart romance, although Leighton and Everett certainly have been in love since high school!

A series of events to make the other jealous leaves them going down a path neither of them see coming. A path that will bring them so so much heartache and tears. A path that I am not sure I would be able to endure!

But Everett and Leighton are MEAN

Spring Semester is a must read love story from Q.B. Tyler. You thought you've read many "best friends turn lovers" romance novels. Tyler's "Spring Semester" not only is on par with the bests of the genre, but also stands out with her remarkable versatility with character developments. Her plotlines are unique and characters are distinct from stories to stories. In Spring Semester, Leighton and Everett's journey is full of heat, heart, emotions, and a bit angsts. You'll see how their relationship ...more

First of all, Congratulations, QB, on another fantastic book! I love SS lots! I love how deep Leighton and Everett love each other, it is so sexy!  Leighton is Everett's weakness, he cant help it, since nine years old! Love how he confronted Allison when the truth was almost out, no sympathy, she doesn't deserve any, for causing so much hurt to our beloved couple. I don't want them to spend a day apart, thats how much I love them together.

Friends to lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes and it’s no surprise that QB Tyler delivers it so well. This book has it all. First love. Angst. Characters you love with times you’ll hate them. It’s a story weaved together so flawlessly you’ll get lost in it from page one.

Leighton and Everett are the perfect pair. Even though Tyler puts them through hell, you can’t help but root for their happily ever after. The two of them are magnetic- always drawn to each other no matter what. Though

Spring Semester is a best friends to lovers romance that will take you on so many emotional twists and turns but still gives you that HEA that you crave in the end. Everett and Leighton have been friends for 11 years and while the sexual part of their relationship isn't new they finally decide officially move things toward the next step. Then all hell breaks lose. If you're looking for a sassy, passionate, and independent heroine who adores her sweet alpha this is the book for you! I highly reco ...more

I started this book at 10:30pm and at 2:30am I am done. This is by far my favorite of the tale series. High school best friends turned sweet hearts with love hate and drama. Leah and Everette remind me so much of high school and college. Oh this story is relatable with lies and deceits. I loved Leah and I sympathized with her for one I have been in her shoes before and it’s a battle you fight with yourself until you finally say that I’m all in or all out no matter the outcome.

Oh holy HOTNESS!! Wow, this story story started off with a bang and Leigh and Everette are two of my favorite best friends couple. Leighton is a firecracker and puts her guard up to not let anything hurt her. Everette is the all American boy and the boy everyone girl wants.. The only one that Everette wants is his bestie Leigh. These two have so much chemistry, but when Everette makes a horrible mistake their friendship and relationship are pushed to the max. This is a great summer read and coll ...more

Ok, I think of all the things I liked about the book and they are a bit more than what I didn't like so this is more like 3.5 stars.

I liked Everett and Leighton. I think Everett admits to being a cheater but not when he's with Leighton. But to start the book he's cheating with Leighton when he has Allie as his girlfriend. Allie pretty much knows. She's not happy and l don't blame her. So morally, Everett is not cool.

They both are like 20 years old. I'm not so you have to realize that they are i

What a fantastic friends to lovers romance story! Leighton and Everett’s story is so sweet! They shared everything as young friends. As they grew older, they became more aware of each other and their feelings became stronger. I admit that I cried multiple times while reading this story. The see saw of emotions would be tough for anyone, and it seemed they both survived it multiple times. Their love for each other conquered all the drama that their relationship had to go thro

Q.B. Tyler never disappoints! She will write stories that have you glued to the pages. My heart, my feelings - gah - she has them all over the place. I loved Everett and Leighton (even though my heart went out to her, I wanted to pop her a few times in the book and tell her to grow up and stick by your man). This was such a great best friends to lovers book. So glad they got their HEA (even though you put my heart through the wringer Q.B. Tyler).

I can’t tell you how much I was looking forward to reading this. Even though it gave me extreme anxiety reading it. Their Emotional roller coaster sucked me in from the get go, and there’s never been a story that I’ve read that made me go back in forth between instant gratification to delayed gratification.

I love Everett and Leigh. They are the perfect example of what love can do to a person both the good and the bad. It shows what it means to fight for something that you want. This story is steamy but also has a lot of angst. It had me set on the edge of my seat waiting to read what would happen next. It is a great read and highly recommended
