Review

The Off Campus series was one of the first smutty series I came across back in college. I loved the OG Briar U hockey crew and was so excited to have this little glimpse into their futures. I laughed, definitely shed a couple tears of and honestly freaked the heck out over how everyone’s final stories would play out. It was a teensy bit disappointing but for the most part I enjoyed it.

Honestly out of the original couples I only ever liked Allie and Dean along with Hannah and Garrett. I love the boy group but I just couldn’t be sold on the pregnancy trope Sabrina and Tucker got stuck with and Grace annoys the hell out of me. Allie and Dean hit the jackpot with their novella in The Legacy and it was truly the best story of the bunch. As for the others we miss a pivotal scene in Logan and Grace’s story, Sabrina and Tucker had the next best story and Garrett and Hannah unfortunately had the worst story.

Garrett and Hannah were done so freaking dirty, just thinking about it makes me sad. Theirs is the last one and at one point Garrett talks about how he thinks he has the best relationship of the bunch. After reading the other stories and how he treats Hannah during their story, it dispelled that belief rather quickly. It just didn’t feel like the couple we met in The Deal.

Highlights:

1) Alexander. Anytime this doll made an appearance I laugh-cried so hard. I love that he had a whole haunted history.

2)The appearance of other Off-Campus and Briar U hockey players! I loved the glimpses into their lives and just seeing them show up was worth picking up this book.

3) When the friend group was able to get together and have some fun like old times. There are definitely some great Logan, Garrett & Dean scenes. Those boys crack me up.

4) #Wesmie reference.

Overall I’m not sad I picked up this book, but I also could’ve lived without it. I immediately want to pick up The Deal and remember why I loved Hannah and Garrett to begin with. So dirty. The Legacy was enjoyable though with lots of great moments that true Off Campus fans will like.
