Release Blitz & Book Review: The Sophomore by Monica Murphy


The Sophomore by Monica Murphy is now live!


Jackson Rivers.

My not so secret crush.

He’s popular. Gorgeous. Talented.

Also my biggest weakness.

I’ve stood by him for years. Been a friend every time he needed one, but he doesn’t see me. Not like I want him to.

Move on, my friends said. Find someone new. Someone who sees your worth. Someone who gets you. I know they’re right. I’m only a friend to him. He’s never going to see me like I see him. So I take their advice, and try to move on.

But Jackson is always right there. In my face. Running to my rescue. And when I meet someone else, Jackson isn’t having it. For some reason, he’s suddenly determined to stay in my life. Right by my side.

Now he says he wants me, but does he want an actual relationship? Or is that he can’t stand the thought of losing me to another guy?

It’s time to find out what Jackson truly wants…and I’m going to make him work for it.

For me.

My Review:

The Sophomore is another great college romance by Monica Murphy. This romance is unputdownable and will give you all the feels.

This book focuses on Ellie and Jackson. Ellie is a shy girl who has been in love with Jackson since the first day she met him. Jackson is the popular rockstar and jock who all the girls want. Ellie is his biggest supporter always there for Jackson, but she wants to be more than friends. But Jackson is so hot and cold with his feelings and is terrified of commitment.

When Ellie starts to think that Jackson will never make a move, Jackson starts to get jealous. Is it too late? There is a new love interest that forces Jackson to make his decision.

I don’t want to give anything away because I just devoured this book. The chemistry between Ellie and Jackson is the perfect mixture of sweet and sexy. They are great together and readers will be hoping they find their way to each other throughout the entire read. Earlier, I mentioned this book would give you all the feels and it sure does. There are times when you want to roll your eyes at Jackson’s behavior, swoon at how sweet he is, be a friend who roots for Ellie, and so much more.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I give The Sophomore 5 stars. I love this book and it’s a great addition to the College Years series. If you enjoy friends to lovers, then you have to read this book!!
