* Review * CONVENIENT FALL by Jerica MacMillan @JericaMacMillan

Convenient Fall 
by Jerica MacMillan


Sleeping with your roommate is a bad idea, right?

Megan Davidson is scrambling to find a new place after Abby, her roommate and best friend decides to move in with her boyfriend Lance. With just a week until classes start, the open spot left in Lance’s old house looks like her best option. She moves in with Matt and Chris, shameless flirts and notorious players.

Chris Watkins first met Megan at their Fourth of July party over the summer, and he’s wanted her ever since. She’s now tantalizingly close, and he doesn’t want to keep his hands to himself, even if its the worst idea ever. Chris doesn’t do relationships, but once with Megan just isn’t enough.

With ground rules in place, it seems like everything’s working out fine. But will Chris’s history catch up to him and ruin everything?

Review by Becky Grover
5 of 5 stars

I truly enjoyed reading the Players of Marycliff University series. This book can be read as a standalone or along with Book 1, Summer Fling, which rolls right into Convenient Fall. I really love to stay in a written world longer than one book, so I read them back to back and would personally recommend them that way. It's nice to get to know the characters a little more through the different point of views. We learn about Megan and Chris in Summer Fling through the eyes and perceptions of Abby and Lance which makes it so easy to roll right into Convenient Fall where we pick up right where we left off.

Megan moves into Chris and Matt's apartment after Lance moves out. She is an artist, party girl, outgoing and energetic. She loves to go out to the best parties on the weekends and live it up! She's not one to get attached to a guy necessarily and has no problems with occasional hook-ups. Yet, she is also responsible, in that she makes sure to get good grades and also tutors others. She comes from and ultra-conservative and religious family that disapproves of pretty much every life choice she has made. That being said, they do not financially or emotionally support her in any way, because she will not conform to their wishes to change her major, attend church regularly, or switch to a different college...just to name a few. They would freak out if they knew she moved in with two men.

Chris is a well-built, super hot football player and everything all the ladies want! Not only is he a player on the football field, but he also makes his rounds to the weekend parties, hooking up with whatever "Jersey Chaser" is looking for his attention. He is notorious for it. A quick hook-up and moving on. He has never really had a relationship... they never last long enough.

When Megan moves into the apartment Chris's world is rocked. He has always been attracted to her, but now that she's always here under his watchful eye, he has a burning attraction to her that he can't shake. She's different somehow. Both of them know that getting involved with each other would be a huge issue since they live together were something to go wrong. But can they fight this attraction that only grows? How far could it really go anyway?

Jerica MacMillan really knows how to take you back (if you're my age and need taking back, lol) to how it felt to be young and in love. You know, those relationships that you aren't sure about?.. Whether the guy likes you the same way, or if you are over-thinking things and getting in over your head? Should you be feeling what you are? Am I really any different than any other girl? Surely not. Oh, and what about that well-known notorious reputation?..

In this sweet novel we see Megan and Chris both in uncharted territory. Megan is not one to allow herself to feel vulnerable. She struggles with her self-doubt, and the "Jersey Chasers" give her good reason. Chris has never really navigated a relationship and he makes plenty of mistakes on his own. Can they make things work? They have a lot to learn!

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did! It's angsty and heartwarming and sexy all rolled together! My favorite!
