Review

"XO, BLAKE was full of heart, mystery, and yes sexy time. There were moments that moved me to tears and others that I just thought to myself, "How the hell did that happen?" -Love Words & Books 
"Of the three currently available books, I must admit that this one is my favorite, and it isn't simply because I love my LGBTQIA fiction. The story had a more serious side story and Blake was an eighteen-year-old with a heightened sense of responsibility and maturity. The humor that is part and parcel of this series is still very much there, so don't think that this is a tearjerker of a book." -Bookaholics
"I loved XO, BLAKE as I knew I would. I want to know more. Here are some questions to tease you with. Will Taddy deal with the lost she had? Will Blake new found love be his only love? Will Blake secret admire continue to admire afar yet to close? Ahhh...can't wait for the next adventure." -Worth Reading It
"There are hundreds of hot, witty and downright amazing quotes throughout this novel, but when I read this quote; 'Son, that three-syllable word seems mighty big for something which isn't that much of a deal. Being a homosexual is no different than being a heterosexual, you just like dudes is all. We clear.' I was completely blown away by it. It's such a simple sentence, but so... WOW!"-Saucy Reviews on Kinky Corner 
"Aster tells a fast-paced, passionate story that includes its share of emotional ups and downs.This fun and spicy book has some hot gay lovin' and let's just say that Blake, despite his technical virginity, can rock that headboard!" -Vox Libris

Each book in the manhattanites series keeps getting better and better and having Avery Aster give us the defining moments in their lives as undergrads is just icing on the cake. This time we get the delectable and alluring Blake. the one everyone turns to and who is the kindest gentlest guy around.

This is Blakes story and how he fell in love. I do wish though Miguel had grown some humpzah and told Blake before Diego though. I don’t know what it is about Diego but he is too slimy for me. He appeared all caring and stuff but it rubbed me wrong. Miguel though that was one gorgeous sexy broody artist. ‘

this is the wonderfully articulated story of blake. How he came out, how he was comfortable with who he was with his parents love and support to guide him, how he overcame his learning disability and show everyone his brilliance, how he developed the close friendships he had and how he fell in love.

The story that broke my heart more than Taddy’s after the bar scene was Thors. He is a sweetheart and to see him in pain was heartbreaking. That scene was poignant and beautiful and showed us just how amazing and how big Blakes heart truly is.

This is a fun amazing uplifting story of Blake and how he fell in love. How he overcame all the challenges thrown at him and succeeded in being a smart amazing kind caring guy and totes awesome friend. A really amazing treat for all who have been attached to this series and wondering how Blake became who he is.

I love this book so much! Even though weird things are happening to our favorite Manhattanites, the story is told with such flair! And Blake? Well I just want to give him a huge hug. He's such an amazing friend to have. He really is the guy you want to spill your deep dark secrets too. Just look at Diego. WOW! What a hottie! Lucky Blake. I guess we'll have to wait and see if he and Miguel will keep their friendship platonic.

Bravo Avery Astor! She really knows how to tell an extremely entertaining story with lots of humor, drama and plenty of sexiness. I can't wait to read whatever this fabulous author comes out with next.

I love this book... Avery aster is such an awesome author because she's very blunt and explains everything to the T but is hilarious. Xo Blake was a short story but was not short in its explanations and its sexiness at all!! The manhattanites such an awesome series because each character is sassy, sexy, funny, and each has their own drama. That being said the Manhattanites are a family and stick together no matter what even if their own families do not. Avery touches on some sensitive subjects but makes light of them also. If you love hot m/m and family togetherness as well as sassiness READ THIS BOOK!! YUMMMM!!!!

The Undergrad Years are like – The OC, 90210 and Gossip Girl on steroids – I love it!

This is part three of The Undergrad Years, a spinoff series or prequel series if you will, to the very popular Manhattanites Series by Avery Aster. The Undergrad Years features or favorite besties Lex, Taddy, Vive and Blake as college students. Each installment has the close knit clan in crazy adventures attracting attention and drama everywhere they go.

This installment is all about Blake Morgan III. I loved finding out more about Blake. I have to admit out of all the Manhattanites he was not my favorite. I don’t know why, but I wasn’t getting why the girls loved him so much. Reading XO, Blake and going back in time to the college years with them taught me so much about Blake. He is a generous, kind, loving friend to all and these girls would be lost without him.

Avery Aster manages to write stories that make me laugh out loud, hold my breath in anticipation and get emotional all in a few chapters. Though there are lots of funny parts to XO, Blake there are also some serious issues that the author address very tastefully. Blake is dyslexic when he writes in his journal Avery was sure to show us his mistakes which made the character all the more realistic. There is also talk among the friends as well as between Blake and his mother about HIV/AIDS and safe sex. Important issues that I still find even today people have a hard time talking about.

The romance part of this installment is the new relationship between Diego and Blake. The sex scenes were very well written as I would only expect from Ms. Aster. There is a bit of light BDSM scenes that I though played well in the story. I felt so bad for Miguel loving Blake from a far poor guy.

Crazy, sexy, steamy, hilariously over-the-top book. Characters, this time main focus is on Blake, are so confident in their station in life, yet also so vulnerable and with hidden insecurities.

This series, and this book takes over where Gossip Girl left off, but ramps it up a few notches. The story and the characters are so awesome that you turn pages without noticing that you've read 250 pages. I could happily read 250 more. Hope the series continues and I can read a few more of these books.

I super highly recommend.
