Description from
During welcome week at Hillson University, the FROSH will hit the fan.

Type-A aspiring journalist Ellie plans to take freshman year by storm. But hell-bent on breaking a huge on-campus scandal, she risks becoming one herself—and getting the mysterious, heart-melting QB in serious trouble.

Grant, star quarterback and charismatic chick-magnet, is hiding a life-altering secret. The last thing he needs is an overeager (absolutely adorable) journalist asking questions. He’s got a reputation to protect.

High-society legacy student Devon is ready to catch the football hottie of her dreams. If the tabloids feature her with the “it” boy on her arm, her tainted past will be buried—or so she thinks.

Charlie, pre-med, is done being the sweet and funny geek that girls like Devon ignore. But if he tries to impress her with a new edgy, spontaneous attitude, will his heart end up in the emergency room?

FROSH intertwines the stories of Ellie, Grant, Devon, and Charlie in Mónica B. Wagner’s sexy NA debut series, about falling in love and falling apart.
I enjoyed Frosh: First Blush so much! I absolutely loved that it was told from so many different points of view. It made it so interesting to see literally everything that was going on in each persons life from different points of view, since all of them were connected in some way. I don't know what exactly I was expecting going in, but this exceeded those expectations. Maybe I didn't expect to like it so much, because I thought the four points of view would become too complicated, but they really didn't.

What I also loved was how sweet, yet sexy this book was. I feel this is a great book for those leaving high school and entering college, going from YA to NA. It definitely has the drama of a YA, but the sex of an NA. I felt it was very tastefully done and had me hooked from page one. The characters were all fantastic, too. Ellie is an aspiring journalist and she really is just trying to get an education so that she can have a future career as a reporter. Grant is handsome, buff, and the star quarterback, but what if football isn't the only thing he wants to do with his life? What if he wants a real life? Devon is the queen bitch, but underneath is a really smart and sweet girl. Charlie is ridiculously smart. He's freshman age, but this isn't his first year in college as a pre-med. What happens when his dorky-self falls for Devon?

This band of characters may seem like they wouldn't have anything to do with one another, but yet they are all connected and told a really amazing story. I love drama (in books or unrelated to me lol) and I love being nosey and in-the-know so, this book was perfect for me. There are quite a few love triangles, I will warn you, but they only add to the tension and will right themselves. In the end (almost) everyone is happy, the drama is in full swing and I cannot wait for the next book!

I absolutely loved this book! It had me hooked from page one and it was hard to put down. You would think having four points of view would muddy-up things and make the story super complicated to follow, but actually just shed more light on the story. It was super easy to follow and I loved every second of it. You would think these characters would have little to nothing in common, but they actually play huge roles in eachother's lives. This is definitely going to be a series full of drama and romance. I cannot wait to read the next one! If you love YA and NA, and drama, you will love this book!
