The Undergrad Years by Avery Aster…. Blog Tour





For fans of the dark comedy film Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down comes an erotic exploration in domination and submission where Ivy League students let their naughtiest desires run wild…

If you think my besties Lex, Taddy, and Vive have had some bad luck earlier this year, cut to me at Glamorama. Last thing I remembered was dancing with Diego and Miguel from my English class, when the room started… spinning. And not in a good way! We got sick. Think Regan in The Exorcist. Taddy was rushed to the hospital. Holding on for dear life, I was carried out by the boys and taken back to their dorm.

Now I’m waking up in Diego’s bed and Miguel keeps staring at me from across the room. I’ve wanted to get into these dudes’ pants since the first day of class. But Diego told me he likes to be tied up and—wait for it—spanked. WTF! The news on TV reports that last night we all got roofied. And Vive just texted me saying that someone is out to kill her. Could this semester get any more bizarre? -–Blake Morgan, college freshman, gay best friend, virgin.




Court’s Review

The third installment in The Undergrad Years, XO, Blake, is all about Blake, the Gay Best Friend (GBF).
Blake is the sweetheart of the group and the only one who doesn’t come from fame, fortune and money.  But he’s definitely in a league of his own.
The gang is finally at college and Blake is pining after two Latino men that make his blood boil.  But once again – mayhem creeps in.  It seems as if none of them can catch a break.  However, the silver lining for Blake is that he definitely lands in good hands.
Lex, Vive, Taddy and Blake get through the trauma together and keep their whit and humor at the forefront.  This one isn’t as hilarious at the previous two books, but it still has it’s charm.
We get to see the closeness of Blake and his parents and see where he gets his awesome personality from.  Avery does an exceptional job of writing this series and keeping this characters very honest and raw.
I really recommend this series – each book is very quick and can be read alone.

Truly Taddy


Jetting to Martinique for a modeling assignment with three of Europe’s hottest magazine photographers—Gustave, Fabian, and Leon—should’ve been easy, breezy beautiful. Never did I expect to look up and see a hole in the ceiling of our plane that was bigger in size than my Birkin bag.

Shit! We’re nose-diving toward Eden Island. I pictured how my New York Times obituary might read when I’m gone, “Taddy Brill, Manhattanite, dethroned descendant of the Austrian House of Brillford royalty, dies at age eighteen, penniless, unloved, and a virgin.” I swear this crap only happens to me. Suddenly, Leon pulls me with Fabian and Gustave. Adrenaline racing through me, our bodies clung as one. We prepared to…crash.

Court’s Review 

Yours Truly, Taddy is the second installment in the Undergrad Years and is just as hilarious as the first.
This story is all about Taddy, Lex’s BFF and her travels abroad for a modeling gig.  These four – Taddy, Lex, Vive and Blake have the greatest friendship around.  These four definitely will do anything and everything together and not bat an eye.
The story is told from Taddy’s POV and is quite entertaining.  She needs the money from this modeling opportunity to pay for her college tuition or she won’t be attending with the other 3, like they have all planned.  However, nothing ever goes according to plan.
Their adventure begins before they ever arrive at their destination.  The interaction between the secondary characters and these four is quite entertaining.  Filled with lots of humor and whit, you will find yourself laughing and chuckling throughout this whole book.
Avery does a really great job of writing this light-hearted and very humorous book.  And I really enjoy getting to know more about these characters as we go along.  They are quite the group.
If you want a quick, easy and funny read – pick up this series.








Love Lex




This summer, I’d planned to celebrate my eighteenth birthday in Europe with my fellow Manhattanites—Taddy Brill, Blake Morgan, and Vive Farnworth—until I caught my boyfriend screwing my mother. According to the police report, this vomit-inducing incident happened around the same time I’d supposedly blown-up my mother’s penthouse. Like I’m walking around Soho with a stick of dynamite in my Louis Vuitton purse—not! Now, my besties and I are in jail.

Officer Ford Gotti, the Harley-wheelin’ biker cop who arrested us, keeps sticking his perfectly-sculpted nose into my case. His inked body is jacked like a superhero, and he says I can trust him. He wants me to fess up. I won’t. Not again. Why should I? My friends and I had a previous stint in juvie that nearly destroyed us. I gotta protect them and keep my mouth shut. Right?

—Lex Easton, women’s studies major, motorcycle enthusiast, and virgin.





 Court’s Review

Love, Lex is the first installment in The Undergrad Years and gets things off with a very quick start.

I love Lex’s whit and humor in this book.  She isn’t your typical slender, drop dead gorgeous popular socialite.  She’s normal and has all the insecurities most girls do.  However, her parents are famous and so are her friends.

As Lex is turning 18, they she wanted to celebrate it doesn’t pan out so as she expected.  Her humor, friends and an unexpected person however make sure it’s a memorable one.

Lex, Vive, Taddy and Blake are definitely a group of friends I would want.  This book had me laughing the whole time and I truly enjoyed the dialogue in this book.

Avery does a great job of giving you a quick synopsis of things from their pasts that help enlighten what is currently going on in the story.  These characters are all unique and definitely add their individuals quirks into the story.

In this Coming of Age Romance book – this one will stand out as it mostly based on humor and the wittiness in these characters. It is a quick read and you will find yourself smiling the whole time.

This series is one you will find yourself running to when you need that pick-me-up or a good laugh!
