    • 4.5 stars This book ranks high on my list of favorite NA romances Though it has clich d tropes what NA book doesn t , the approach and execution was done very well and with ethnically diverse and easy to love main characters, an engaging storyline, and side characters that were both comical and warmed my heart, Last Will and Testament was a big winner for me fe doesn t give a shit about perfect timing or perfect circumstances it just happens And by now, I ve lived enough to recognize that when s [...]

    • 4.5 STARS life doesn t give a shit about perfect timing, or perfect circumstances it just happens Last Will and Testament was such a fantastic read and for sure one of the best NA I ve read so far From the blurb you can tell the story is about a forbidden relationship What makes this book for me so different from other books with same premise is the fact that this story is not only about a teacher student relationship It s a story about life, love, family, friends and so much Elizabeth Lizzie B [...]

    • If you guys know me, then you should know that I rarely read New Adult Mostly, it s because I m not into the bad boy meets virgin girl and they both undergo an angsty drama thingy that a lot of them are unfortunately full of Another reason is that I m not really into reading sex scenes I m not against it particularly, but it s just something I seek once in a blue moon and when I m in the right mood for it What s interesting is that when I chanced upon this book, I wasn t feeling like reading one [...]


    • Last Will and Testament started out really strong for me Mostly because of Lizzie s amazing narrative voice and unapologetic style How unapologetic Well the story starts out with her screwing another girl s boyfriend when the police show up and inform her that her parents are dead.Lizzie s entire life changes then, when she has to adult up and take on her two younger brothers while cleaning up her life at Radleigh university To do that, she needs the help of her uptight TA, Connor Lawson.Lizzie [...]

    • 3.5 STARSFrom college party girl to guardian of her two younger brothers, Lizzie had to grow up very fast after the accidental death of her parents I really liked transition of her character Author made very good and believable job of developing her character And even though I never experienced what Lizzie did fortunately , it was very easy to connect with her She was very realistic 18 years old character which made her POV very enjoyable for me.Add NOT INSTA forbidden love, funny banters betwee [...]


    • 2.5 Stars This clearly fell short for me, the first half I quite enjoyed but then at around the 50% mark things became extremely boring, the characters became immature and the story fell flat for me.There was a 7 year age gap between Lizzie and her TA Connor, but this wasn t evident to me Connor wasn t my type of BBF and his French blaspheming was a bit of a turn off if I m honest.I felt that they got together as a couple too quickly without any kind of sexual tension I still don t know what it [...]


    • He s bringing a salad It s official I want to fuck Connor Lawson.Personally, I would have held out for dessert But whatever I think there s a good chance that NA contemporary romance haters might enjoy this better than the standard fare This is a less ridiculous book than much of what s being offered at the moment, and is entertaining to boot But first to deal with I m probably super picky about teen mom stories because I was a teen mom I did continue to screw up at that age I still went to inap [...]


    • THE TYPE OF NA ROMANCE I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR Oh man, I loved the crap out of this book It was a sweet and sexy romance that I totally shipped like you have no idea but I also really loved how it explored how hard the college transition can be, family, grief loss and having to grow up too soon I have been pining for some books that aren t just SET in college as a flimsy background setting for sexy times but the main character ACTUALLY is engaging with college life stuff and this book is 100% th [...]


    • 3,5 4 stars FORBIDDEN RELATIONSHIPS This book isn t all about love It is also about loss, growing up, being mature, and respect Despise being a forbidden relationship, this one was different because the girl, Lizzie, knew he Connor was a teacher before they started dating And that was new Also, it has a whole lot of a different context In the very beginning, Lizzie finds out her parents died in a car accident and she has to take care of her brothers Ty 12 years old Max 7 years old But she s onl [...]


    • Review also posted at Young Adult Hollywood.Pants heavily.That was me with this book.I honestly didn t expect to love it this much.But here we are.I love how Adler writes her female characters We have a Filipino American protagonist which is certainly a first from this genre Her heritage was mentioned a handful of times but didn t play any bigger stance in the plot I kinda wish it did, though.Lizzie is a fiery, unapologetic character and yes, she is a good person, but she makes bad and shitty de [...]


    • Post reading This one is definitely a high 4 and I not only really liked it but loved it Super enjoyed Lizzie s voice Full review tk.Pre reading HELLO THIS IS BY DAHLIA ADLER OF COURSE THIS IS GOING TO BE FABULOUS AND HOTTTTT And can we just take a moment to appreciate the fact that the main character, Lizzie, is half Filipina Diversity in New Adult, yes please


    • I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review Thank you Dahlia Adler s upcoming New Adult Romance was genuine, honest, and realistic BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, it had heart Last Will and Testament dwindled a delicate balance between life, family, love, and obligation.For college wild child, Lizzie Brandt, What happens when your life is spiraled upside down and you suddenly become the sole custodian and provider for two adolescent boys Faced with these obscurities while being a ful [...]


    • Initial Impressions 11 30 14 Yayyyyy 4.5 stars for this lovely book I m usually not quite interested in students who have relationships with their teachers professors TAs I m looking at you, Julie Taylor Friday Night Lights but I trusted Dahlia Adler to steer this book in the right direction because she is awesome and she totally did I m always craving for books in college and I think it s hard because as much as people s high school lives vary, I think things start to get really different in c [...]



    • Last Will and Testament is one of the few novels I ve managed to read in one sitting over the past few months Considering that little has kept me away from sleep since I began college, this speaks volumes While Adler s latest is compulsively readable, with a flawed heroine we cannot help but root for and a swoon worthy romance to boot, my feminist brain couldn t help but nit pick at the villain of this storyline which only contributed to my rising dislike of the plot during its last quarter Neve [...]


    • Okay, I was not even going to write a review for this one, because I really have not much to report.So just a few thoughts This is a proper 2 star read for me I neither liked nor disliked Last Will and Testament it was simply okay Maybe I was not in the mood for it, because honestly it was not a bad book The writing was a bit clich , but nothing too bad There are worst books out there, let me tell you that.Therefore, I won t be recommending this book to any of my friends, but I wouldn t discoura [...]


    • Lizzie Brandt has spent her year at college skipping classes, partying and sleeping with another girl s boyfriend, so when the police show up at a house party to inform her that her parents have died she isn t quite sure how she should react or what she should do Her Byzantine History TA is quite familiar with Lizzie s slacking off and when she emails him to let him know she won t be in class for a quiz he does what any other teacher might do in his situation asks for proof But dealing with her [...]


    • DNF 61 % Or not Reliable sources i.e Dahlia Adler, who s the author, in case you didn t know told me there was no mushy romance, and lots and lots of sex So I decided to finish the book And this is my reaction Because it was fucking amazing guys Fucking Amazing Just buy the book, okay.Original review Yes, I DNFed this Yes, I still gave it 4 stars Why, you ask Why would you give such a high rating to a book you didn t even finish This is where I tell you that all will be explained later.And this [...]



    • As a forbidden love junkie, I d wanted to read Last Will and Testament for a long time If you re a fan of student teacher love stories with loads of but we can ts and but I want to s then you should totally check this out Even though there were parts that didn t completely work for me, I thought it was a fun read with good dialogue and sexy sweetness.The author does a great job of hooking you right from the beginning Lizzie has become accustomed to coasting in college instead of working hard to [...]


    • A different new adult, with a different kind of heroine Not the usual sweat love story as the main character already starts as the other woman However, even though I got used to her, she was still too self centered for my mind It was cool for her to want to stay with her brothers and take care of them, but I couldn t feel that they were really close Actually, most of the second characters were underdeveloped They were just there when it was convenient but didn t engaged in another interesting pa [...]


    • For the most part, this book was awesome I was pulled right into the story from page one My heart broke for Lizzie and what she was going through with her parents The author actually brought me to tears a couple times Lizzie felt like a real person She wasn t the perfect girl that never does anything wrong She made mistakes and compounded them because she got in over her head Case in point was sleeping with a guy she knew had a boyfriend She courted trouble and dug herself deeper later and it ca [...]
