This seemed to focus more on political correctness instead of a story. Characters weren't developed, instead of developing them and showing us why you should embrace and celebrate someone different The characters were terrible. Won't buy any more books in this series. My 12 year old son isn't a bookworm. He reads because he has to read either for school or because I make him. But he's really enjoyed Riordan's books and has asked for each new one coming out.
And he read this in about 3 days. He actually walked around with his nose in this book vs an ipad or soccer ball at his feet. So I'm a big fan. I read this after I'd finished the third book in the series. How I missed this one, I don't know, but it was odd seeing references to things from book two of which I knew nothing. That said, this is another fine chapter in the continuing saga of Magnus Chase, demigod and Einerjar careful how you pronounce that.
He and his friends, some of whom are alive in the normal sense, some of whom are once dead, like him, set out to find the stolen Mjolnir, Thor's hammer. Thor misses it because it gets a slew of HD channels. The story is full of ever increasing peril and difficulty, and serves to set up the already reviewed here third volume. The references to Norse mythology are a bit strained at times, but basically stick to the stories in the Eddas.
For some reason, everybody in the nine worlds speaks contemporary English Elvish is exactly the same as English. Go figure. But that's nice because it means that the reader always knows what's going on. Here, as in the other two volumes, Ragnarok must be averted. Well, not to spoil anything, but of course, it is. Hope that doesn't disappoint you so much that you don't read this volume, because it's a damn fine book!
Read it, you'll be glad you did! One person found this helpful. Book two picks up roughly six weeks after the end of book one, The Sword of Summer. Although Magnus is settling in at Valhalla, all is not settled. Magnus has been charged with reuniting the hammer and Thor, and he must do so before the giants realize it is missing and attack. As with the others, too, it is well written and clever. I love the crossover between his different series, however.
I think my favorite part of the book was the very last line, while Magnus was meeting with his cousin, Annabeth. Just when you are absolutely certain you can't be drawn in to a series like you were when you discovered Percy Jackson, you find Magnus Chase! He's not your typical hero, he doesn't even know if he IS a hero. But the tasks set before him quickly establish him as intuitive, and able to react to some rather serious circumstances in a moment!
I love reading the adventures he tackles, and am extremely glad they are happening to him and not me. I loved the first book in this series, but this book was just irritating on multiple fronts. I'm not even going to both reading the next book in the series. See all reviews.

The ARC hit my kindle at about 8 PM last night, and I quickly ate dinner and spent the rest of my night completely immersed in this college that I missed so much! And like I said above, we get to see Garret, Logan, Tucker, and Dean, but this is a whole new hockey team, even if a couple of the guys have had minor parts in the original quartet.
Like, the dream, right? But Fitz is struggling with abuse from his past, and never allowing anyone in. But Dean talks to Fitzy, Hollis and Hunter, since they are living in his old house, which totally has room for his baby sister. And all that good angst ensues.
Lord, help me. The tall, sexy, tattooed, hockey-playing unicorn of a man who I might have a teeny-weeny itsy-bitsy crush on. Okay, fine. A big motherfucking crush on. There I said it. And like… Hi, my name is Melanie and I really want to date Brenna. Like, in the bar, with her black bralette? I was swooning, friends. Summer was easily my favorite in this book though. Gosh, I feel like is just the year of me writing too many personal reviews, but Summer just really resonated with me. And people judge her for that, too, but seeing how she handles it, very realistically, warmed my heart.
Seriously, Summer is easily one of my favorite characters of And you know what she did? She went to law school and showed everyone how smart she was, and then she became a lawyer and everybody loved her, and her slimy ex tried to win her back and she sent him on his way. The end. Also, obviously because Summer is comfortable with her sexuality, she was asking for it. And Elle Kennedy always delivers these points in a negative light, showcasing how gross our world can be and how hurtful stereotypes are.
And having this be in a book set in college? Seeing Summer being insecure and embarrassed about needed more help, time, and attention, is something so important and I wish more people could read this book for that alone, honestly. I just love her and everything about her character. Silencing the inner critic borders on impossible. I just feel like the banter is written expertly, and so realistically.
And this book is really sexy. And the few scenes that it does have? As in, put my literal hand on his literal penis. Even with Twitch and streaming! And it brought me so much unreasonable joy! Seriously, this book is so well done. Overall, I just love this series. Seriously, Elle Kennedy is truly the queen of the genre at this point! View all 31 comments.

Especially when it comes down to the Briar boys that captivated my heart back in with their unique mindsets and creative personas.
My god did I miss all my Briar boys and all their perspective partners. Thankfully Elle has made a combat with Fitzy and Summer's love story. A romance novel that is filled with angst, fulfilling lust, and so much compatibility between these two individuals that come from two totally different worlds. For Fitzy, fighting his attraction towards Summer, Dean Di Laurentis' younger sister, becomes a task that is beyond difficult for him since he ends up becoming her roommate after an unexpected turn of events.

Due to her learning disabilities, she ends up getting help from Fitzy and he ends up getting her help for inspiration when it comes down to his video game ideas. The obviously makes it obvious that Fitzy is a game designer major who also plays hockey for Briar U. How can one forget?
The Briar boys have always had a special place in my heart when it comes down to college romances, and bless the soul of Elle for bringing them back in this novel. We get to see more of Tucker and Sabrina and their cutie little baby, which I am utterly obsessed with and want a story for her in the future as a Briar alumni. That triggers a lighting bolt on Fitzy making him realize that no matter how much drama, how much momentum, how much enthusiasm and socialism Summer may have, he still craves her aurora and personality.
This is what truly captives the reader for more of Elle's writing. And because Elle knows her readers so well, she introduces a new character who becomes Summer's new best friend; Brenna. That is the next story, The Risk. And I am keeping my fingers crossed it is the individual who I want it to be because Brenna's story will be a wild ride. I am so glad to have read this novel, my craving for college romance is back and I need more! View all 22 comments. Apr 17, Katerina rated it liked it Shelves: reads , contemporary-romance , arc.
She went to the beach, she was sunburned and ended up looking like a roasted Thanksgiving turkey, she ate seafood with the light summer breeze rustling her hair, and life was simply perfect. Until she got a summons to the Prosecutor's office. Me : How did you know it was me?
Prosecutor: It was the smell that gave you away. Me : Smell? Prosecutor: The smell of books, fluffy dreams and chocolate flavoured hopes for happily ever afters. Me : Thanks, I guess? Prosecutor: Please, sit down. Do you know why I brought you here? I didn't mean for my sister to get hurt, she got over it, at least I think she did, she won't talk to me but - Prosecutor: What are you talking about?
Me : Um, the Incident. Me forcing my sister to hold a book pile some people would call huge in order to take a photo for my Instagram account and said pile collapsing on her head? Prosecutor: - Me : Oh, you didn't know that. Prosecutor: No, but remind me to come back to this later. The reason I invited you here is to try and help you make amends for a felony you committed. Me : Well, I also gave The Goal 3 stars, but you didn't mind back then! Wait, you know about it, right?
In any case, I plead the Fifth! Me : It's a long story, really. I dived into The Chase all too eager and enthusiastic, I started it as soon as the ARC hit my Kindle and the whole experience reduced me into a puddle of hormones , and I think I drooled a little or, you know, a lot. The thing is, there was more angst than I expected, and both Fitzy and Summer irritated me sometimes. Prosecutor: One would say that Elle Kennedy tackled some serious issues, like learning disabilities, spiteful parents, broken families and unreasonable girl-on-girl hatred to name a few, and handled them with respect, she showcased their impact in a realistic way and gave you food for thought.
Me : That's true, I didn't- Prosecutor: One would also say that since you're in the mood for NA romance you got your fill of steam , more sexual frustration than your ovaries could take, well-written moments of levity and snarky banters , and my records show that you swooned a couple of times. Me : Three times I think - Prosecutor: One would finally say that you should be happy and thankful you got back to Briar University and the hockey team that would render you a puck bunny if given a chance. Do you deny all those things? Me : Jeez, what got your panties in a twist?
And what's with all the spit, do I need an umbrella whenever I talk to you? Prosecutor: Apologies for my outburst, ma'am, I simply don't understand this. Me : To be honest, me neither. I enjoyed The Chase , hell, I devoured it, but I was left a bit unsatisfied. She was the queen of llama-drama and a brat, and even though I eventually found depth in her, and realized she was a wonderful human being after all, I couldn't shake those impressions.
And Fitz, his reactions were so His reservations were founded, I give him that, but his head was stuck in his buttocks for a long time. But they were great buttocks. I also loved his tattoos. His muscles. His geekiness. Prosecutor: Ma'am, let's focus, alright? Me : What? Oh right. Prosecutor: Me : Prosecutor: Anything else? Me : Yeah, every hockey hottie from the previous books appeared, except from my favorite. Prosecutor: That's a legit point. Is it enough, though, to justify the three stars? Me : What will you do if I insist on this rating?
Prosecutor: Will imprisonment deter you? Me : I'm afraid not, sir, I shall stay true to my humble opinion. Prosecutor: Fine, you may go. Me : Wait, that's it? Prosecutor: Three star ratings are not a crime, ma'am. Gosh, how do you call yourself a lawyer? I just wanted to change your mind. Narrator: Reader, she didn't know that.

Mar 23, PM. Aug 06, Christy rated it really liked it Shelves: four-stars. Elle Kennedy is one of my favorite new adult authors, so when I saw she was coming out with a new series, I couldn't wait. Fitzy is a character from her Off-Campus series, but it's not necessary to read those first even though you should because they're EPIC. Summer Heyward-Di Laurentis is Dean's little sister.
She's beyond wealthy and is starting a new school. Due to some unfortunate choices 4 stars!! Due to some unfortunate choices she made at her last school, she is in need of some roommates last minute. Luckily, her big brother Dean has some friends from his hockey team she can room with. Unlucky- one of them is Fitzy, the guy she's had a crush on since the first moment she met him.
Fitzy is not Summer's normal type. He's a hockey player covered in tattoos who spends all his free time on art and video games. Though he is insanely attracted to Summer, he's not sure about her. He knows her type. The rich, gorgeous and full of 'fluff' and drama type.
But here is the thing about Summer- she may be rich and beautiful, but she is so much more that that. Surprisingly enough for me, Summer was my favorite part of this book. As much as I loved Fitzy, there were moments I wanted to throttle him. He really irked me, especially the first half or so of the book. I hated how he made it seem like everything about Summer was drama, when that wasn't the case.
I was so freaking happy when he started to truly see her for the woman she was, I just wish it wouldn't have taken him so long! I love hockey books and new adult books, and not many authors write either as good as Elle Kennedy. This book was fun, sweet, sexy, and emotional. Exactly how I like them! I'm not sure whose book is next in this series, and I don't really care to be honest. I can't wait to read it no matter who it's about! Bring on more Briar U books! View all 11 comments.

This is a new adult spin off from her Off Campus series which I have not read. Summer De Laurentis comes from a wealthy family. But she also wants to be seen for who she is. Summer is starting her second semester of her Junior year of college. Colin Fitzgerald is a sexy, nerdy, gamer, tattooed hockey playing jock. So no one is more baffled than he is at the attraction he has felt towards Summer since the first time they met. Summer has had a crush on Collin Fitzy ever since they first met But he has barely spoken two words to her ever. Finally, on the night that they finally get to spend a little time together, they are both flirting.
She is sure she is sensing an attraction from him, until she overhears what he really thinks. Summer needs a place to live and Fitzy needs a fourth roommate so Summer is forced to move in. Not only is it awkward being around Fitz but one of the other roommates, Hunter, clearly has a crush on her. Summer struggles as a student. She has a learning disability. So she also struggles with self confidence as a result. Add on to that a professor that makes her very uncomfortable, and this semester is sure to be epic. Fitz is constantly fighting his feelings for Summer.
He is friends with her older brother. Okay, now the hard part. I think I am going to be in a minority here when I say that I struggled a bit with this. Summer came off the first three quarters of the book as so immature. I actually understood her motives. Hunter made it clear he did. She wanted that for herself. To be wanted. With that being said, though, she still should not have let herself consider Hunter when she knew her heart wanted Fitz. But then the last twenty five percent of the book my opinion greatly improved.
During this part of the book, Summer finally really showed her moxy, both at school and at home. I really enjoyed the way things played out between she and Fitz. I loved the way she drew him out, even really without him realizing it was happening. And as I said, even though I did struggle some, the last quarter of the book made it worthwhile.

There's nothing better. It was fresh and fun, swoony and angsty, and just everything I wanted in a book. Full review to come. View all 6 comments. Opposites attract in this brand new spin-off series and I frickin' loved it! See what I did there? Alright, that was entirely too cheesy but I simply couldn't resist. She's a heroine that instantly jumps from the pages at you and there's something so incredibly endearing about her.
She's beautiful, popular, and a social butterfly. But she's not a girl without insecurities either and those are the things that make her as endearing as they did. And her shoes. Where Summer is the social butterfly, he's the hermit. He knows that Summer has a crush on him, but no matter how strongly he may be attracted to her as well, she's the opposite of the type of girl he needs. Then Fitz goes and puts his foot in his mouth, and what was gearing up to be potentially something, soon turns into angry stares and snarky come backs When a turn of events leaves Summer without a place to live at Briar, the college she's transferred to after her snafu at Brown, her brother is all too eager to help.
Unfortunately it also lands her as the fourth roommate to Fitz; the man she's determined to now stay away from. What begins then, is the most sexually charged game of push and pull I've read in a while.

Summer is determined to stay away from Colin. Colin doesn't want to want Summer, but can't help but be pulled into her orbit. Colin's buddy and other roommate, Hunter, wants Summer. Summer doesn't want to want Colin, but also has no reason to turn down Hunter. Oh the madness of it all! While I can see some readers going crazy from Fitzy's back and forth feelings and behavior, I gobbled it up.

I got why he acted the way he did, even if I did want to throttle him for it half the time. HE struggles with his attraction to a girl that's always in the spotlight when he does his damnedest to shy away from it. Summer is a true girl's girl, and I loved the genuine friendship these two forged.
The potential set up there sounds utterly delicious. The Chase was an addicting opposites attract romance that had a smile on my face from beginning to end. The banter, the sexual chemistry, the secondary characters, and the romance were absolutely fantastic! And then there was the quirky humor that I couldn't get enough of. In particular, the appearances with Dean and the sibling dynamics with him and Summer. But Summer Heyward-Di Laurentis makes everything possible. The Chase set the stage for an amazing new series from one of my favorite authors and I already can't wait for more. If you're a fan of sizzling New Adult romance, this is a book that's not to be missed!

A big motherfucking crush on.. Summer Di Laurentis is Dean's little sister from The Score and one of Fitzy's former team mates, he's been fascinated by Summer ever since he met her about a year ago when she visited her brother at Briar and she's harboured a crush on him ever since, even though the guy barely glanced at her.
Not even a day on campus and Summer is escorted off the premises, it seems an escapade from her previous college has followed her to Briar U where her dad pulled a few strings to get her in, and now she no longer has a dorm room. Dean knows that Fitzy and the boys have a room spare so he asks that they rent their spare room to Summer.
So when she moves in with the gang it makes for an awkward living arrangement where both her and Fitzy try their hardest to ignore each other. This was an enjoyable, a slow moving, slow burn lazy Sunday kind of read, and one of my most anticipated reads of August. Summer and Fitzy are complete opposites, but they were the perfect match, she thrived in the limelight he wanted to be invisible, but together they were flawless. These two did butt heads at times, and took their sweet assed time to connect but the build up was entertaining.
Fitzy isn't your normal out going sports jock, he's a tatted up, gorgeous nerd and a pure introvert to the core with a double major in Fine-arts and computer programming under his belt. Slowly Fitzy see's another side of Summer emerge as they spend more time together he realises his first assumptions about her were wrong. In the end they come together as two friends helping the other out, he wants to draw her into a character based on a video programme he's designing and in turn he helps get her thoughts on paper for her thesis.
Summer and I We're not even on the same piece of paper. She's drama-llama and full force, all the time. She craves the spotlight. I shy away from it. View all 14 comments. Unfortunately, and it pains me to say this, but It was the slowest burn of slow burn romances.
And after waiting for so long for this book to be written already, I was honestly just begging to get the ball rolling and not have to wait until I only have 30 percent left to read. Fitzy was not how I expected him to turn out. And his whole backstory of why he was so quiet and broody was kinda But I just expected more? I honestly liked him more in the other books when we had less of him. But now that we got to know him, he was just not how I expected him to be.
I liked Summer but I did like her but some aspects in regards to her character just seemed forced. It was interesting to read about how her mind work and how she coped with it. But I felt that it did nothing whatsoever in regards to story progression or character development.
It felt like she tried to relate to the Me Too Movement but only went halfway and brushed over it. Anyways, the story kept me interested enough but I felt bored waiting for something to happen and for them to stop dancing circles around each other. This whole book felt more like an introduction novella to the Briar U series rather than the Summer and Fitzy book I was hoping to get. In fact, I think I actually loved the side characters more than Summer and Fitzy.
I can see a Romeo and Juliet type of romance happening. Hollis deserves a happy ending too though.
I did enjoy reading the book while I was reading through it and I was leaning towards giving The Chase 4 stars. Better luck next time hopefully! View all 8 comments.

I was laughing, fuming over and having a blast. I could see those characters in real life, I have some of their traits and flaws, I have been or know someone who has been in some of their situation.
Being inside the mind of Summer Di Laurentis was a whole experience. I liked her the most, but it was more than just like , I got to admire her a lot. She was so selfless, smart and downright awesome. I loved her wild spirit! Summer had a lot to offer to anyone and to us as a character. She was complex, well layered and an outstanding female lead.
I would love for my life to be narrated by her. Summer got issues to be resolved and she was very vulnerable yet really brave. She can do anything she wants. I am so in love with this girl. Fitz… Colin Fitzgerald was real treat. I liked him in so many different ways and I respected him a lot. His introvertive ways made so much sense once you get to the root of everything, but he was so adorable, sexy and smart. I like how strong he was. It took him a bit to get there, to finally be secure enough to go for what he really wanted but when he reached?
It was glorious. Summer and Fitzy worked as a couple. They just clicked. They bring the best and worst out of each other -but mainly the best. Their dynamic was cute, hot and funny… just like this book! I got no complains when it came to how the story was structed. It was a lot of fun watching them -mainly Fitzy get there. Not only our main couple had chemistry but everyone in the book rocked it. I am very excited about these new characters and revisit the old one. One of my favorites ever, to be honest, so having the fun, emotional and teary experience of knowing Summer, Fitzy, Breena, Hollis and Hunter… it was amazing.
I cannot recommend this new series enough. This is probably one of the most difficult reviews that I have to write this year. For one, 3-star reviews are always difficult to write. And two, I love everything Elle Kennedy writes except this one. I didn't dislike it or hate it. The Chase is the first book from Kennedy's new Briar U series. If the name of the series sounds familiar to you, it should since it's the spin off of her popular and widely loved Off-Campus series. This book is This is probably one of the most difficult reviews that I have to write this year.
This book is Summer and Fitzy's story.
The Chase, Volume 1
Summer is Dean's sister. We met her previously in Dean's book. Summer is a whirlwind of Prada and Chanel No. She is my favorite part of this book. Fitzy was Dean's teammate and we met him briefly in The Goal. The story starts off with Summer starting a new semester in Briar U after being kicked out of Brown. She wasn't exactly welcomed at the campus so Dean arranged for her to room with Fitzy, Hollis, and Hunter in Dean's old house off campus.
This brings her into Fitzy's orbit, the guy she's had a crush on. Unfortunately for Summer, Fitzy doesn't seem to notice her but since she is who she is, Summer sets out to win him over with disastrous results. I enjoyed this book for the most part. This was insanely readable, at least for me it was. I could not put this book down. Summer was a really fun and refreshing character. She's unabashedly feminine and makes no apologies for loving clothes, makeup, reality shows, and other feminine coded things that are usually considered as negatives in romance heroines.
But this is exactly why I enjoyed her character. Summer was fun and hilarious. She had her insecurities, which I will get into a little bit, but overall, I love Summer. Fitzy was no slouch either. I'm always here for nerdy gamer heroes and the fact that he is also a hot, tattooed hockey player just makes him all the more appealing.
I also understood why he was hesitant to be with Summer. I think Elle did an okay job with explaining his motivations. Nevertheless, he frustrated me throughout this book. Summer made some boneheaded decisions too but I feel like I could understand it because she was at least honest about her confusion about her feelings between Fitzy and Hunter. Yes, folks. You've read that right. There is a bit of a triangle going on in this book. It's not much, and I would say it's not even a real triangle because it's clear who Summer preferred from the get go but it caused quite a kerfuffle in the book so it's mentioning.
So heads up. And this is where the book started to derail for me a little bit. Don't me wrong, there were some really hilarious and fun dialogue in this book. Some hot and steamy ones, too. But the romance started to become a side plot instead of the main plot. There were scenes in the book where I was just confused because it did not move the story along. I suspect those scenes were added to set up the next book and introduce new characters but it felt like a detour and that really put a damper on the developing romance between Fitzy and Summer.
I didn't mind it but I wanted more Fitz and Summer! That's really the bulk of my issues with this book. The romance was sidelined in order to set up future books and because of that, the pacing suffered. I have other smaller issues concerning representation, specifically, the ADHD rep in this book. I won't go into details and I would rather have people who have personal experience with ADHD comment on it but I had recently read a book with the same rep and the lack of shame and self-loathing was startling. So I guess that's why that one stood out to me. There was also that huge subplot about Summer's professor and dean in charge.
I think Kennedy captured the creepiness of the professor well. The gaslighting and manipulation felt all too real and I instantly felt a connection with Summer because I feel that most women went through that kind of thing in their lives at least once. It was disconcerting reading it on page and it might make some readers uncomfortable but it was well done. What I didn't like was how everything was neatly resolved. One phone call and boom!
And Summer's dean in charge, after months of putting Summer down was suddenly contrite and boom again everything is forgiven. It has Kennedy's trademark humor and steam and complicated relationship dynamics but it didn't quite wow me like her other books. I have a feeling the series will only get better from her because the set up was already there.
But that's just it, because of all the setting up being done, the focus on the romance between Summer and Fitzy suffered in the process. An ARC was provided for review View all 23 comments. The Chase was addictive and fast paced! The romance was perfect, if you like slow burn and angst then this is definitely for you! I adored Summer and Fitz and I couldn't wait to see them together! They make me swoon and have a smile on my face most of the times. But also they frustrate me in a good way! My heart was aching for them and I desperately wanted them together!
I'm looking forward for the next book in this news sport romance series! Get ready to fall in love with Summer and Fitz. When I heard she was coming out with a new book that she wrote alone I was beyond excited and when the arc landed on my kindle I dived in right away. I loved Summer as a main character, she had such spark and personality and such life. What brought the rating down for me was Fitz. God, that man drove me crazy and not in a good way. I get that he had trouble expressing himself and his parents totally screwed him up, but I really hated how he constantly bashed Summer and called her drama all the time.
I think lots of readers will love this book and for the most part I did too. Apr 13, Ari rated it really liked it. And that's what I've done for years—hidden pieces of myself from my parents, my friends, chicks, the world. I want someone who encourages me to step out of my comfort zone, and Summer is that someone. To say that The Chase was one of my most anticipated releases for the year would be an understatement. As soon as this bad boy hit my Kindle, I spent the night devouring it because I was not about have anyone spoil this book for me!
Summer Di Laurentis is starting her first semester at Briar University after being kicked out of her previous school and things are already not going according to plan as she finds herself without a place to live. I was hooked on The Chase right from the start and devoured it in less than 24 hours! Gosh I miss being in this world with these characters and all their shenanigans.
Speaking of characters, I already have a favorite character in this series and her name is Brenna Jensen! I swear, Brenna is my soul sister because we are one in the same. Summer fits her name to a T. I adored her to bits. Hello kink!
