I wrote this, so I ll skip the review part, but use this space to answer the two questions I keep seeing 1 Yup, this pub date got bumped a lot I wanted to release the best version of it I could and that turned out to be too difficult in a year I was already releasing two traditionally published YAs It s out now, though, soyay Thanks for your patience 32 Nope, you don t have to read the first book to read this one, though it s a lot fun to see Lizzie, Connor, and Frankie if you do None of the ot [...]
What a disappointment I admit, I read this book strictly because of second chance romance After quite good first book Last Will and Testament forbidden student teacher romance I was looking forward to reading this second standalone installment and I was very curious to see how author would deal with second chance romance trope that I like so much It went badly Instead of meaningful and thoughtful romance I got shalow and underdeveloped romance together with weak heroine who thought that she was [...]
This book did not disappoint I read Last Will and Testament a while back, and I ve been patiently following the updates of this book, so to finally read this wow It felt so real and relatable and beautiful, I m actually writing this review at 4 in the morning And yes, I just finished reading the book.There are so many things I loved about Right of First Refusal.The sports jargon I m ashamed to admit this, but I m not the most sports literate person I watch the occasional basketball, soccer and f [...]
Trigger warnings homophobia from background characters, cheating.3.5 stars Here s the thing I loved the first book in this series so much that I immediately bought and sped through the second and third books Does this book REALLY deserve 3.5 stars when it s a romance book where there s no romance until the 70% mark Probably not Did I really like the characters and speed through it Definitely Did it keep me hooked for a couple of hours YUP Basically, it s the story of a university lacrosse player [...]
Curse you Dahlia Adler I obviously couldn t put this down and stayed up way too late just to finish this story and I have to get up early Read these books you guys And full review to come soon
You can also find my review on the blog.In Right and First Refusal, Adler has all the right elements to make a book good for me sports, fake dating, second chance romance, diversity I don t know how to tell you how much fun I had while reading this book I ve been waiting a long time for the books of the rest of the trio of friends this series has Lizzie, Cait and Frankie This is Cait s book and as always, this story starts with a bang The stream of profanity that rings through my dorm room is ma [...]
OMG I AM DISAPPOINT I really enjoyed the first book Looked forward to that againPE This was so annoying Cait CONSTANTLY like OMG Mase Mase I need to stop thinking of him Mase Your muscles Your beautiful dark skin Your giant dong Mase No, stop thinking of him UghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhAnd there really was no conflict you know The reason Mase ghosted on her is revealed in like two sentences And was dumb And her actions are dumb too I liked all the supporting characters way better than this hot mess.
DNF com 65%N o deu minha gente Eu n o curti a escrita dessa autora mesmo As personagens principais dela s o muito agressivas sem raz o aparente e a progress o da est ria romance n o boa e n o cria tens o suficiente para me empolgar Ela toca em todos os pontos importantes que deveriam me fazer amar seus livros, mas n o consigo Esse at tem um dos meus clich mais preferidos de todos os tempos o retorno de um velho amor Tem algo que n o desce nos seus livros sadfaceO pior que a autora um exemplo de [...]
omg it has every romance trope i ve ever loved in one book I CANT WAIT
Original review The Daydreaming BookwormCait Johannssen is not one to get caught up in drama She s all about getting good grades and making wins on the lacrosse field But she gets thrown off her game when Lawrence Mason, the new basketball student coach and the only guy she s ever loved, comes walking into her dorm room with his new girlfriend, who also happens to be Cait s new roommate The surprises keep on coming when her father announces his new engagement and suggests that Cait move to Calif [...]
Soooo apparently I m reading this series backwards That s normal Whatever.Fuller review tk, but here are my initial thoughts Omgggggg this book was baller Quite literally, since it is a sportsbook romance, which is fun, because I am a sportsbook sort of person I love sports, especially when other people are playing them, because I am inconceivably lazy But I love reading about athleticky types like Cait ADORE HER and living vicariously through them They make running sound so fun I m way like Li [...]
If you ve ever read one of Dahlia Adler s books, you know that one of her biggest strengths is characters who feel so real Whether she s writing about a young Hollywood starlet or in this case a star college lacrosse player, you feel like these are people you might actually know Well, people you know who have way cooler lives than you And much wittier banter And like, really hot love lives But you know Anyway, RoFR is no exception Cait, our heroine, felt like somebody I would have loved to be fr [...]
I really enjoy Dahlia Adler but wasn t feeling Right of First Refusal A lot of time was spent on Cait stewing over her problems and it grew old and boring after a while It felt like Cait thought about Mase than actually interacted with him I was hoping for tension and push pull between these two and instead all I got was a ton of internal angst on Cait s part This one wasn t for me, but I do plan on checking out the next book in the series.
First, I want to make clear that I think Adler s writing is fantastic However much I hated the book, the fact is that I stayed up until 4 30 am to finish this book and the writing was compelling hence the 2 star rating Whether I was liking or not the content of the story, I kept reading it because I kept being engaged with the text.But still, the book didn t work for me Two main things marked the fall and decline of the plot for me First, much like with Last Will and Testament, I think this book [...]
3.5 starsI adore Dahlia, so this book could have been exclusively about a Saturday morning spent doing groceries and laundry all by your lonesome, and I probably would have picked it up anyway As it is, she asked me to read it for review and I jumped at the chance In case you didn t know, when it comes to spicy NA, Dahlia knows what she s doing a fact she only reinforced with Right of First Refusal.I will say, though, off the bat that the romance was not my top favorite thing about this book Nay [...]
im so right nowthis was adorable and i loved all the secondary characters so much as well
Ahhh, Dahlia Adler does it again Disclosure Dahlia s a good friend and I was lucky enough to work on this book in its early stages I think what I love most about this book is that shit goes wrong, Cait makes bad decisions, and there are consequences for those decisions Too often, even in, or especially in, New Adult, characters make crappy decisions but everything works out with a neat little bow Because Love But that doesn t happen here Sure, there s a HEA Don t worry, romance fans The tension [...]
I really, really liked this book Strong female characters Strong female FRIENDSHIP Second chance romance In love with roommate s boyfriend I can t help it, I love this trope Diversity Sports romance mainly about the heroine s athletic career Hell yes A family story What else is awesome about this book I don t know everything This book was a breeze to read It was at times sweet, funny, and or sexy Sometimes all three together I love books about girls figuring things out and putting themselves fir [...]
This is the story of a woman who had done it all wrong She couldn t do it over, but she could do it differently 3
Right of First Refusal finds Cait with her life together She s the star lacrosse player, it s looking like she ll be made captain and her team may make the national championship She also has great friends, good grades, and a relationship with her father At least until she doesn t any Her father is marrying a girl her age and her ex from sports camp just transferred to Radleigh and is dating her roommate Not to mention she s also in a fake relationship with a gay friend But Cait is determined to [...]
I stumbled upon this by mistake, but it actually turned out to be pretty good I was wondering how some of the issues would be resolved, and they were honestly done quite tactfully.
Reading, and waiting for emotional investment to sink in
Dahlia Adler has quickly become one of my go to authors Her writing always leaves me with a renewed love of New Adult She proves that the category isn t all tired clich after clich She obviously puts thought and effort and love into her characters and that is what helps them to become not only realistic, but people who will live on in our hearts for a long time.Right of First Refusal is so much than a sports romance, so much than a second chance at love romance, it s about standing firm in who [...]
3.5 starsDahlia asked me to proofread Right of First Refusal for her, like I m a professional or something, which is massively flattering, and also I super love her face You can take my assessment or leave it, as a result, but I review, in some measure, everything I read in full, so I m going to do it here too.Right of First Refusal isn t my favorite of Dahlia s books that would be Just Visiting, which seriously I can never push enough but it s still excellent There are some things you can alway [...]
Review on blog bit 1TepN4m I am so much better than this person I ve become I am living for Dahlia Adler s New Adult writing She s got this way of story telling that sucks you in from the get go and has you hard core crushing on both the characters and the storylines But RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL brings so much to the table than just a second chance New Adult love story For starters, the obvious portrayal of diversity within the characters and the storyline makes this read one that needs to be dis [...]
4.5 stars I really liked Last Will and Testament, the first installment of this series, and was really excited for the day this book would get publishedd it didn t disappoint At all.I don t get why this author has such low ratings on her books It s really weird because she s a great writter For one thing, Dahlia Adler is an a great writer There is something to be said about that, and it often gives the book something extra It s really enjoyable to read a well written story.The alternations betwe [...]
4.5 I loved it, Dahlia s writing great it makes for such a fun read and has an addictive quality about it once i start i dont want to stop My reasoning why i couldn t give this a full 5 is because it didnt have the emotional pull that the first one had The characters are still great and feel like they are so real which you don t always find.I didnt think this was like a normal cheesey NA The sex scenes were written well and didn t feel cheesey or cliche This book gets steamy people.I definatley [...]
i was really impressed with how diverse this book was the thing i liked most was the side characters especially Sam, Frankie, and Jake.
