Title & Series: FROSH: SECOND CHANCES (Frosh #2)
Author: Mónica B. Wagner
Release date: September 27, 2016
Publisher: The Studio, a Paper Lantern Lit imprint
Pages: 244
Formats: eBook


In FROSH: First Blush, Ellie, Grant, Devon, and Charlie spent their welcome week falling head over heels for each other–before totally falling apart. Now, in FROSH: Second Chances, they’ll have to pick up the pieces.

After ruining Grant’s football career (and her own reputation), Ellie has been trying to lie low–which means not making more enemies. But some students still want her to pay for what she did, and now, Ellie’s determined to fight back–and fight for Grant.

Grant is adjusting to his new reality: no more football means no more free passes in class, and definitely no more distractions; especially from Ellie, whom he misses even after she destroyed his world. Can he find a way to move on without her–and without football?

Devon finally has it all: her brother’s sober and her boyfriend is an adorkable genius. But when her parents threaten to tear her and Charlie apart because he doesn’t ‘fit’ into their high society, she will go to dangerous lengths to prove that nothing–nothing–can defeat Devon Connors.

Charlie’s never questioned who he is: pre-med science geek, and now, Devon Connors’ boyfriend. But when he discovers a secret about his past, Charlie isn’t sure of anything–especially whether he can trust Devon with the truth.

Perfect for fans of Cora Carmack and Colleen Hoover, Monica B. Wagner’s sexy New Adult series follows these four characters all the way to winter break–when the only thing they’ll want more than first love is a second chance.

The Review

FROSH: SECOND CHANCES is the sweet and sexy and heartwarming and heartbreaking second book in Mònica Wagner’s Frosh series. It takes readers back to Hillson University and back into the lives of Ellie, Grant, Devon and Charlie, where they’ll finally find out what’s been going on with each character in the aftermath of what went down on campus in the series’ first installment.

Ellie is trying to recover from what happened and stay out of the spotlight. But her need to make things right and her desire to make those in the wrong pay is making that nearly impossible. Angry and heartbroken, serving up justice may be just what she needs in order to move on.

Grant’s future is no longer as certain as it once was. With no clear path ahead, no free ride, and no Ellie, he’s going to have to figure out what he really wants and decide whether it’s worth the risk to go after it.

Devon wants to be a better person, for herself and for Charlie. But old habits are hard to break, and making the wrong choices is so much easier than fighting to be someone she is proud of. Losing is not something she is familiar with, but if she isn’t careful she could lose everything.

Charlie does not fit into Devon’s world. He knows it, she knows it, her mother knows it. But when he makes a discovery that could give him an “in,” he’ll have to decide whether the price of becoming someone he’s not is worth it.

Mònica Wagner wrote a captivating and delightful sequel that promises to answer all those burning questions she left readers with at the end of book one and leave them with a few new ones to anticipate answers to in the third book. She introduces new characters and brings back one or two unexpected ones. She delivers happily-for-now endings and not-so-happily-for-now endings. She reveals secrets and secret crushes. And she add the perfect amount of hot and steamy into the mix.

FROSH: SECOND CHANCES is a lightning-fast, adorable, bittersweet, and positively addictive read. Told from Ellie, Grant, Devon and Charlie’s perspectives, it is certain to make readers fall in love with, ache for, worry about, hope for, each of them. And with their fates, their futures, their love stories, still up in the air, and with others hoping for very different outcomes for them, the wait for the next installment won’t be easy.

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.
