    I love how authors have started writing books specifically for their email subscribers, sending them a chapter a week, or a month. This is one of those books. A short story in the Ivy Years series, a series that I love, even though I?ve only read some, not all of the books. Josephine...

    I wanted to love this but sadly I didn?t. I do love the serial format from time to time but I felt like in this, the story was too short and the characters lacked depth. Sarina?s characters and their depth is what I usually loved most about her stories. Also, I wasn?t a big fan...

    It's a free, serialised story, so comparing it to a fully realised and EDITED novel probably isn't fair. But I read a lot of fanfiction, and this wasn't nearly as good as most of what I can find on AO3. ...

    An adorable weekly serial by the incredible Sarina Bowen. What happens when a shy, awkward virgin becomes the new English tutor to a drool worthy French Canadian hockey player? All. The. Darn. Feels! It's really hard to believe this serial was only a handful of chapters, bec...

    Awwwwwww! ___________ ? Mar 08 Pepe's book! ...

    Loved this serial we got as gift in Sarina's newsletter. Pepe was great in the books and I'm so happy he got his HEA with his chaton! I wish the story hadnt been so short. I loved reading about them together and revisiting the ivy years series! ...

    That was very sweet and too short. I loved it. Hey maybe Sarina will continue with more about these two. Hum. Great read and fun to get a snippet of this each day. ...

    When finishing this yesterday night, I only gave three stars, which is my go-to rating if it was nice, but nothing special. I decided for 4 stars now, simply because I took into consideration that this was a novella, a really short one. It is not easy to form a connection between two c...

    http://celebrityreaders.com/2018/05/0... 5 stars ? OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! I?m not good at doing the serial thing (I have ZERO patience), so I waited until this one was complete to dive in, and then I gobbled it up in an evening. IT WAS BOTH TOO SHORT AND PERFECT!!! I LOVED Pepe and...

    I love how authors have started writing books specifically for their email subscribers, sending them a chapter a week, or a month. This is one of those books. A short story in the Ivy Years series, a series that I love, even though I?ve only read some, not all of the books. Josephine...

    I wanted to love this but sadly I didn?t. I do love the serial format from time to time but I felt like in this, the story was too short and the characters lacked depth. Sarina?s characters and their depth is what I usually loved most about her stories. Also, I wasn?t a big fan...

    It's a free, serialised story, so comparing it to a fully realised and EDITED novel probably isn't fair. But I read a lot of fanfiction, and this wasn't nearly as good as most of what I can find on AO3. ...

    Awww I love Pepe and his chaton!! I'm going to miss my weekly tutoring sessions with them ? ...

    For a novella, it's not bad, I'm just no good at novellas. It was cute but short. ...

    The only bad thing I can say is that it was WAY too short! ...

    This was a great experience...I fell in love with a beautiful Canadian chapter after chapter. I'd like to read more about these characters they took a special place in my heart. ...

    That was very sweet and too short. I loved it. Hey maybe Sarina will continue with more about these two. Hum. Great read and fun to get a snippet of this each day. ...

    When finishing this yesterday night, I only gave three stars, which is my go-to rating if it was nice, but nothing special. I decided for 4 stars now, simply because I took into consideration that this was a novella, a really short one. It is not easy to form a connection between two c...

    I love how authors have started writing books specifically for their email subscribers, sending them a chapter a week, or a month. This is one of those books. A short story in the Ivy Years series, a series that I love, even though I?ve only read some, not all of the books. Josephine...

    I wanted to love this but sadly I didn?t. I do love the serial format from time to time but I felt like in this, the story was too short and the characters lacked depth. Sarina?s characters and their depth is what I usually loved most about her stories. Also, I wasn?t a big fan...

    It's a free, serialised story, so comparing it to a fully realised and EDITED novel probably isn't fair. But I read a lot of fanfiction, and this wasn't nearly as good as most of what I can find on AO3. ...

    Awww I love Pepe and his chaton!! I'm going to miss my weekly tutoring sessions with them ? ...

    It was so much fun to go back to Harkness College and read Pepe and Jhosephine's story. I love nerdy heroines like Josie. She ends up tutoring english to French Quebec hockey player Pepe. While she is seriously attracted to Pepe, she would never believe that the star hockey player woul...

    4 combustible stars! I loved this serialized story from Sarina Bowen. It's the story of Josephine and Pepe(a Canadian hockey player) who meet as Pepe seeks out a tutor for his English classes. They have great chemistry together but Josephine is really shy (view spoiler)[and Pepe is...

    What a sweet, adorable, and utterly satisfying surprise. Sarina Bowen released this in a serialized form, via weekly installments on her news letter. The length is really that of a short story but surprisingly it packs a punch. Josephine is your everyday, nerdy, non-glam heroine, shy...

    I?m so glad I saved the newsletters with the serial chapters intro and links until all 8 were written. Binge reading this one was a lot of fun and provided much needed stress relief. Thank you, Sarina Bowen! Minor Spoilers Alert!!! My tags for this new adult serial are? Hock...

    Dang, that was sweet! Short, sweet and SUPER adorable! How can Sarina deliver all the feels in a few short pages?!? It's magic. She never disappoints! I wish that this series could go on forever, but super happy that she gave us this cute little snippet. ...

    4 Stars Studly Period was an absolute delight to read. Released as a weekly serial exclusively through Bowen's newsletter, this 8 chapter story was a special treat for all fans of the New Adult series, The Ivy Years. This is the story of how Harkness's French-Canadian hockey pla...

    3.5 I wish there were more Stars So cute! If ever I need an infusion of fluff I can usually count on my Fluff Kween and she delivered again. I'm partial to the Frenchies anyway so Pepe would have to be, like, an ax murderer to put me off. Truth be told, maybe not even then. B...

    4 An Amuse-Bouche of Bowen Stars * * * * Spoiler Free -Limited Time Free As a devoted fan from the very beginning of Bravo's Top Chef, I learned a few things... and one of them was this thing called Amuse -Bouche: Aamuse-Bouche or Amuse-Gueule is a single, bite-sized hors d'?uvre...

    For a shortish read this packed a lot of punch because ... Pepe ? Really liked this cute, sweet story. Thanks for the freebie Sarina ...

    I think I'll end up loving this more if it's ever expanded as there's really only so much character growth/depth you can offer in a serial and I didn't ever really get to the point where I loved the heroine (and it was her POV!!). But. But. It was so so sweet in regards to offering us ...

    This was simply delightful. The Ivy Years series is a stand out favourite sports romance and this little novella was a fab addition. Pepe won my heart quickly and he was just a lovely human being. It was light on the steam but fuller on chemistry. Sarina Bowen can produce a full story ...

    This was a great experience...I fell in love with a beautiful Canadian chapter after chapter. I'd like to read more about these characters they took a special place in my heart. ...

    I waited to read this serial until it was all available and it was really, really hard to do so. I am a huge fan of Sarina's writing and denying myself the pleasure of reading her words was not fun or easy. However, it was strangely gratifying because I was able to read everything in o...

    Serialized on the author's newsletter! It's very funny! ...

    This was cute! It suffered a little from novella syndrome in that it's all foreplay and no real resolution, but I liked Pepe and Josephine and would happily read more about them. Kind of fun to go back to Harkness, too. ...

    An adorable weekly serial by the incredible Sarina Bowen. What happens when a shy, awkward virgin becomes the new English tutor to a drool worthy French Canadian hockey player? All. The. Darn. Feels! It's really hard to believe this serial was only a handful of chapters, bec...

    Awwwwwww! ___________ ? Mar 08 Pepe's book! ...

    Loved this serial we got as gift in Sarina's newsletter. Pepe was great in the books and I'm so happy he got his HEA with his chaton! I wish the story hadnt been so short. I loved reading about them together and revisiting the ivy years series! ...

    That was very sweet and too short. I loved it. Hey maybe Sarina will continue with more about these two. Hum. Great read and fun to get a snippet of this each day. ...

    When finishing this yesterday night, I only gave three stars, which is my go-to rating if it was nice, but nothing special. I decided for 4 stars now, simply because I took into consideration that this was a novella, a really short one. It is not easy to form a connection between two c...

    http://celebrityreaders.com/2018/05/0... 5 stars ? OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! I?m not good at doing the serial thing (I have ZERO patience), so I waited until this one was complete to dive in, and then I gobbled it up in an evening. IT WAS BOTH TOO SHORT AND PERFECT!!! I LOVED Pepe and...

    I love how authors have started writing books specifically for their email subscribers, sending them a chapter a week, or a month. This is one of those books. A short story in the Ivy Years series, a series that I love, even though I?ve only read some, not all of the books. Josephine...

    I wanted to love this but sadly I didn?t. I do love the serial format from time to time but I felt like in this, the story was too short and the characters lacked depth. Sarina?s characters and their depth is what I usually loved most about her stories. Also, I wasn?t a big fan...

    It's a free, serialised story, so comparing it to a fully realised and EDITED novel probably isn't fair. But I read a lot of fanfiction, and this wasn't nearly as good as most of what I can find on AO3. ...
