    He makes me want something I shouldn’t. He makes me feel a lot of emotions I don’t understand, and can’t explain. Is it possible for one to be too obsessed with “two players with commitment phobia falling in love” trope? I think the heck not. Gracie and Caleb have been giving us sexual tension vibes since Monica released The Freshman. Yes, these two were side characters, but I think anyone who reads this series would say they cause sparks whenever they are on the page, in both of the first two boo He makes me want something I shouldn’t. He makes me feel a lot of emotions I don’t understand, and can’t explain. Is it possible for one to be too obsessed with “two players with commitment phobia falling in love” trope? I think the heck not. Gracie and Caleb have been giving us sexual tension vibes since Monica released The Freshman. Yes, these two were side characters, but I think anyone who reads this series would say they cause sparks whenever they are on the page, in both of the first two books. So it’s no surprise that they give us all the tension and sparks in their book, but they also give us… slow burn? I’d be a liar if I said that their slow burning tension and the anticipation I felt for them to just BANG IT OUT, didn’t nearly kill me. Dramatic, maybe, but I swear I was on the edge of my seat waiting for it. That said, I think that the wait truly truly paid off. I also think that it was absolutely necessary for these two to build what they build prior to them igniting. Did I think when I read about Caleb in Falling for Her that he’d end up being one of the sweetest most squishiest gummy bears when he fell in love, heck to the no, but here we are, and he’s the squishiest green gummy bear with a jalapeño kick in the bedroom. 😅 yes, I embarrass myself, but it’s the facts. Anyway. If you’re looking for reluctant not quite enemies to lovers, then The Junior provides. Check it out 9/9! AVAILABLE NOW! *ARC

She's about to begin student teaching, but is first taking the summer to get her life sorted. She needs a summer job and a new place to live. She lucks out when she finds a room to rent with mutual friends Eli and Caleb. The only complication is her ongoing fued with Caleb. They've always clashed and argued. He's extremely extra all the time, and his ridiculous over the top behavior is annoying. He's rude, inappropriate, and tests her patience on the regular. He's also unbelievably gorgeous, charming, sexy, fun, endearing, and irresistible, but then he opens his mouth. Nobody affects her the way he does, and deep down he's a decent guy. As they spend more time together he drives her crazy and knows just how to get under her skin, but she's also drawn to him. She's good at keeping guys at arms length, but Caleb is a temptation too hard to resist. Will she enjoy a no strings friends with benefits arrangement or will she be the one to finally tame the bad boy? Caleb Burke plays football for the Fresno State Bulldogs and has a reputation as a player with the ladies. He's known for his endless hookups and larger than life personality. He's young, carefree, and enjoying the whole college experience. Then he meets Gracie who challenges him and makes him question his ways. They are both huge flirts who love to party. They have similar dating styles, and neither do committment, but he's been chasing her since they met. He enjoys getting a reaction out of her, and making her laugh. She's feisty, snarky and stunningly beaautiful. Their mutual attraction is undeniable, but he was quickly friend zoned. He wants to explore the chemistry between them, but is scared by real feelings developing. Will he realize she could be the perfect girl for him, or will he be in denial about what's been right in front of him all along? -"There's something about you that I can't give up on, G. No matter how hard I try." -"I can't quit you." -Drives me crazy how she tries to pretend there's nothing between us, when it feels like everything is between us. All of it. Every single thing. -Gracie is everything I never knew I wanted. The Junior (College Years #3) by Monica Murphy is a fabulous slow burn, frenemies to lovers, roommates, college sports romance full of hilarious banter, friendship, and unexpected connections. I love this series, and have been looking forward to Caleb's story and seeing him fall hard. I really enjoyed getting a peek at his vulnerable side and beautiful heart! This book is packed with magnetic attraction, all the steamy love/hate moments, and a delicious tension that leaves you craving more of this couple! <333 ***NOW AVAILABLE*** https://amzn.to/3yZC04G

    Oh Caleb. I've been waiting for your book. I certainly WAS NOT disappointed with this one. The biggest player out of the bunch who I've fallen head over heels for. One thing that was constant was my smile. Caleb never failed to keep one on my face. This guy is hilarious, and an absolute sweetheart. Who knew this guy had such hidden depths? Gracie scored with this one although she is pretty amazing herself. I adored the banter between these two and their story was epic! Caleb and Gracie’s romance Oh Caleb.

Gracie scored with this one although she is pretty amazing herself. I adored the banter between these two and their story was epic! Caleb and Gracie’s romance was even better than I had hoped it would be. Their dynamic together is perfect. Their relationship is laugh out loud funny, swoon worthy and the perfect amount of sexiness. The way these two just fit together was everything I never knew I wanted but needed. They’re amazing characters and the way they just understand each other really stole my heart away. This story was the perfect blend of heartwarming romance and amusing, engaging dialogues, woven through a well-balanced plotline that entertains and touches the heart in equal measure. I loved these characters, and I loved how multi-layered they got as their story unfolded. Without a doubt, Monica Murphy is a force to be reckoned with. The woman can write the hell out of a book. Caleb and Gracie’s story was funny, sexy, swoony, emotional and wildly entertaining. I can't wait to see what the final book brings, because after that little peek we got? It's about to get real.... Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

Now that Gracie has finished college and getting ready to student teach in a few months, she realizes she needs to grow up and save money. Having roommates will help, but she’s also found a summer job alongside Caleb Burke. The irresistibly charming player she’s been attracted too since they met. Even though neither is looking for a serious relationship, much less love Caleb is nothing if not persistent in his pursuit of Gracie. As they spend time together and get to know each other, they realize that attraction is not the only thing that connects them. They make each other happy and feel safe and tethered. But can they truly take each other seriously? Both Caleb and Gracie embody the new adult stereotype. Caleb in his junior year of college, uncertain of what he wants to do with the rest of his life and trying to make the most out of his college years. While Gracie, two years his senior, fresh out of college diving deep into the real world. Their banter and arguing was seemed more like foreplay, although I did find Gracie to be a bit too uptight at times. I especially liked Caleb’s growth. Once he realizes that being with Gracie is better than giving into his fear, he does everything in his power to show her how much she means to him. The Junior is book #3 of the College Years series by Monica Murphy. This book can be read as a standalone but there are mentions of characters from previous books and other series like The Callahans that I image if previously read would make this story more enjoyable. It is a lighthearted, charming college romance told from both points of view with a happy ending. Genres: NA romance.

Monica has s With every passing “year” I fall more in love with this crazy, endearing, and complicated group of unexpected friends. The College Years continues to charm me with its equal heart and heat coming of age sincerity - and the Junior finally gives our resident, troublemaking playboy his HEA. It wasn’t until the college years series that Caleb really started to shine for me-and with each passing story, I’ve become more desperate for him to find a lady to tame him - or, rather, match him. Monica has steadily been giving him more substance as the college years have progressed- giving his bravado and f-boy persona more heart and more sincerity. And, as she tees us up for what might be the angstiest story yet in the Senior, we get Caleb, the light, comedic, unexpected charmer just when we need him most. I’d already had a soft spot for him, but the Junior made my heart all squishy for our fun loving hero. Caleb is every bit as fun as I expected- sarcastic, humorous, crass and overly honest, and, of course, a dirty talker. He’s always been wild and unpredictable, sometimes a bit selfish and immature- truth be told, he’s a bit much, so really a perfect supporting character. But a leading man? Well, I was curious to see if Monica could take what made him great comedic fodder as a secondary character and transform him into a compelling and substantive leading man. And in this she really succeeds. She gives Caleb depth- fears, ambitions, insecurities, and a whole big giant heart. I expected for him to charm and make me laugh, I wasn’t expecting for him to have so much swoon in him, too. I loved how Monica gives us a female character that is basically a playgirl herself. Even though she’s older, she’s not into commitment, and she’s also got no patience for any relationships, friendship or romance, that don’t enrich her life. Thus, why she and Caleb are on the outs. But, them living together to re-open that door- and more importantly, forces her to confront the real reason she closed it. It’s refreshing to see a heroine that is so against archetype- she likes to have a good time, she’s super focused on her future, she’s sassy and cool. I found her to be a bit level/even keeled, and it’s hard for a heroine to truly shine in the face of a character like Caleb, so it took me a bit longer to invest in her as deeply, but I felt more and more connected to her as the story progressed. So playboy meets playgirl- and we have lots of fun chemistry. Spicy banter, a love-hate contentious beginning that transforms into a truce and then a substantive connection, lots of sexual tension, and two fun loving characters. Surprisingly given these two’s propensity for hook ups, it's a slower burn than I expected, but I really appreciated getting to see these two become friends, and to support each other as they figured out more about what they wanted in life. The sexy times are delicious, but I found myself most loving their one-on-one conversations- the moments where they’d be surprisingly honest with each other. One of the things I find most compelling about Monica’s young adult/new adult stories is how unapologetic she is about her characters flaws- she lets them be young, she lets them make mistakes and do boneheaded things, she lets them be jerks or immature. Because they are GROWING UP- and I think Caleb is such a perfect example of this strength- he’s got past and present character traits that stay true to what he is - a college guy living it up. But she also helps them grow up. The College Years has also been about maturing- taking these dynamic but at times immature kids who wanted to act like adults and now actually growing them into real adults. Figuring out who they are, taking responsibility for their choices, being better versions of themselves, finding direction, and most importantly, figuring out what matters in life - and I loved seeing Caleb and Gracie figure that out together, to help each other be their better selves. Of course, now I’m DESPERATE and anxious for the Senior, especially now that Monica is going to throw it back to my favorite couple of all time. Hopefully all these HEA couples can help those two keep it together- but I know this, I’m not ready to say goodbye to the College Years. 4.5 stars

I simply can't get enough of this Callahan universe spin-off and with The Junior, I am in love once more. Finally getting Caleb Burke's story, the seemingly wild boy who dates women for sport may have met his match with Gracie, the girl he has always wanted but couldn't figure out how to truly have her. And with Gracie, I love that Murphy portrayed her as much as a player as Caleb. A woman recently graduated from Fresno State, who threw caution to the wind once she started college to sow her own wild oats with no apologies. And maybe that's why she avoided the attraction to Caleb because she saw herself in his eyes a bit too clearly. These two were meant to be. Everyone around them saw it but them. Their banter was definitely the best foreplay and we've all waited with bated breath for them to get their act together once and for all. To see that they were both afraid of what real commitment would look like and not sure they wanted what all of their close friends, now paired up, had. Oh but Caleb and Gracie, now housemates and co-workers, had no idea how to resist the other, and when they eventually succumb to their red-hot chemistry, let's just say they are most definitely equally matched in all things physical. I couldn't stop reading as feelings start to become real and Caleb pulls out all the stops to force Gracie to see that he doesn't just think of her as he did all of his previous conquests. Gracie is so much more than that to him and to get to witness both of them being honest and facing up to the fact that they have fallen in wild love with the other when they wanted nothing more than to be good friends, well I was a goner and swooned like a fool. The way this storyline was crafted was perfect in every way. Murphy continues to respect her characters, never allowing them to falter too much. Showing Gracie and Caleb and the world that they are ready to be together, that fears will certainly come into play but that as long as they are by each other's sides, nothing is impossible. Especially in matters of the heart. With truly heartwarming moments that solidified their union in the most touching of ways, I couldn't be happier that it was Gracie all along who held Caleb's heart captive. He'll always be a bit of a jokester but this reader and his girl wouldn't have it any other way. With an epilogue that is both full of joy for our couple but real strife for their other roommate, Eli, it's anyone's guess just how The Senior will play out as Ava and her man have certainly met a huge obstacle in their feisty love affair. And I'll be here for every delicious moment. This book is yet another 5+ star addition to this well-written and addictive series. Really well done.

    I love this series! It just keeps getting better and better! Caleb is a dirty boy he’s such a player and he’s finally met his match the one girl who brings him to his knees. Gracie is Calebs equal in every way these two are perfect for each other she’s just as afraid of commitment as he is and she sees a side to him that no one else has seen before. This story was so good it was sweet sexy and angsty the writing is excellent. I can’t wait for the Senior next !!!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports. Caleb Burke. Charming. Funny. Sexy. Major player - both on the field and with the ladies. I hate him. Well, not really. I resist his so-called charms because I recognize them. We're a lot alike, Caleb and I. He's afraid of commitment? Me too. A giant flirt/ Same here. He knows how to party? I am the absolute queen of the party.

He's afraid of commitment? Me too. A giant flirt/ Same here. He knows how to party? I am the absolute queen of the party. Until I realize it's time for me to grow up and become a responsible adult. I'll be student teaching next year, so to save money, I move in with my two new roommates.-Eli Bennett and Caleb. Then I find a summer job-where Caleb works. Soon, I'm spending almost every single day with the guy. He's growing on me too. We've always had this unspoken chemistry brewing between us. When we finally give in to it, it's just as spectacular as I secretly predicted. The sex, and everything else, keeps getting better between us too. But can I really take this guy seriously? Or am I only setting myself up to fail? This is the story of Caleb and Gracie. He is the jock who really needs to grow up and really goes though the girl at his college and beyond too and she knows this. This is why she figures the best way to deal with him is to ignore him and she's good at it all the while wanting him to be her man so bad she can't stand it. But now she finds herself losing her roommate to her boyfriend and she is going to have to live alone and really bust her butt to live there or she got an offer from one of her friends Eli to move in with him and Caleb. But how can she? Caleb will drive her nuts and she wants to keep her distance from him before they both do something they will regret. But she is about to be a student teacher next year and really can't afford to live alone so she takes the room they have open in their apartment and she also decides that it is time to be an adult and get a real job for the summer and save all the money that she can. So she's move in with the guy she ignores like crazy and now she is looking for a summer job at the lake in on the of the dining establishments or bar and she finds that she should have really applied sooner because all the jobs but one on the docks is taken and that job just happens to be where Caleb works and on the very docks he works on. Now don't let Gracie fool you. She like to stay away from Caleb because she is just as much a player as he is. In fact they have so much in common that it's not even funny. So there perfect for each other and fight it at every turn. And poor Eli he is going to have to live with these too. Thank goodness he has got a girl to keep him busy and away from the misery it has to be at home with Gracie all the time ignoring Caleb. But don't fret, that isn't going to last very long and soon you get to read one of the best books I have read in a while and I also had so much fun reading this book. I loved the characters and I loved the back and forth between them and the chemistry is really off the charts with these two. Don't even hesitate to get this book and dive on in. It was amazing and I hated to see it end I was having such a good time being lost in their world.

And who knew that he will fall hard for a sassy girl who can give him a run for his money in the department of commitment phobis? The Junior by Monica Murphy was all about swoon, feels and hotness overload. Caleb has always been the reckless playboy in his friends group. Gracie is the only girl who never fell for his charming c0cky ways. So things are getting interesting as she moves in their ( his and Eli's) apartment as roommate. And even starts working together at the lake. They are at different points of life as Gracie has finished her study and starting her student teacher part soon. And he still has his senior year to go. Will Gracie give them a chance? So this Caleb is nothing like I have seen him in last books. And that seemed a bit unnatural for me. If you read this as standalone ( and it is one), you won't get it. For me, it felt like he got a personality transplant. The womaniser, inappropriate, reckless, mischievous Caleb is acting like this mature guy who wants Gracie to be more than a hook up. Yes I do feel that he wants to change and Gracie makes him want to be in a dedicated relationship. I was missing the charming obnoxious man. Gracie, on other hand, is a balanced character. She has a lot on her plate and she decided not to fall for Caleb as that's a recipe for heartbreak. But they became really good friends and it was a natural progression. She can be an adventurous girl when she let go but like Caleb, she can be scared of a relationship and hurt others. She us equal parts sweet and fire. Their chemistry was awesome and it was full of emotions too. I loved the transition and they fit each other so well. It was sometimes difficult as none of them knows how to express their feelings. The Junior by Monica Murphy was a swoony exciting and cute college romance. I reviewed an early copy voluntarily

    What an exciting first read!! Even though this was my introduction to the college years series, I never felt like I was missing relevant information from previous stories. Monica gave such an outstanding character development, leaving no holes open for speculation.

When a new side character is presented, she gave a brief overview of their story to make you feel at ease like you’ve never missed a thing. “Eli. My friend. Everything I say pisses her off. You know this.” Gracie is a spitfire, take no shit kind of character. She’s outspoken, pulling no punches with Caleb and never biting her tongue, which I really enjoyed. Her nonchalant personality and carefree attitude reminds me of a free-spirited hippie. She shines bright when needed but can become dark when she is crossed. “Wow. I didn’t realize you had it in you,” Caleb was such an enticing character with his playboy lifestyle that was actually yearning deep down for his connection to the girl of his dreams. He’s cocky and arrogant, a joke full personality, life of the party and annoying with all his snide and crude remarks. But, he has a huge heart for those he cares about. Sex between us is beyond explosive. It’s freaking life-changing. Omg!! Their connection was through the roof!!! All of their snide, sexual innuendo, constant arguing and bickering like it’s their foreplay, made for an explosive reaction in the bedroom! Their willingness to go above and beyond for the others pleasures was remarkably displayed through the pages with their brimming sexual tension. Sparks were all over the place with these two, making their chemistry that much better!

Caleb and Gracie are both players. From the moment they met they were friction, and they've now known each other for a couple of years and still both have this fond mutual dislike/lust for the other.

Caleb is the funny guy. The one that doesn't get emotionally attached. The one that literally doesn't want to grow up! He is living for the party and sowing all of his wild oats! Gracie is the girl that does not get attached. She likes someone and then runs before any feelings happen. That's how she likes it. Neither of these two know how to handle any kind of relationship or feelings. As they embark on an actual friendship (gasp!) they actually find that they like each others company. I love these two together. I love that they are both so similar. I love that girl isn't a mushy mess and just likes to have sex as much as the next guy! LOL. Caleb is a downright sweetheart, yet HE knows he's been a dog. Great story for two good souls that needed each other to realize it!

    What a fun and hot story this was! I haven’t read any of the previous books and I didn’t really feel lost when I jumped into this one. Sure, there are tons of mentions of things and people that were from the previous books but it doesn’t take away from the story. Caleb Burke is a freaking god!

Yes, he’s a manwhore but when he finally meets the right girl and said girl finally gives him a shot, he changes soooo fast that it’s sweet. I really liked having a female character who can be considered promiscuous and be confident about who she is and not care about what other people would say about her. I think society puts labels on and judge people based on their actions and never takes into consideration that we are free to do what we want and who we want… Caleb and Gracie’s relationship is a slow burn. It has been building for years and so when things finally aligned and it finally happened it was like a 4th of July firework show. Not only was the sexy stuff AH-MAZING but seeing Caleb embrace a side of himself that’s been asleep for a long time was very touching. In this book, Caleb had the biggest evolution. I don’t like to say he changed because he really doesn’t, he just opened up and accepted a side of himself that he wasn’t aware of/familiar with and he tuned out to be a pretty great boyfriend. Is it obvious that I love Caleb????? Lol Next up, is Eli’s story and it looks like it’s going to be explosive so looking forward to that!

The Junior is another knock out in the College Years series. We all know Caleb, playboy, nonstop flirt, and no real plan for himself. Then we have Gracie, determined to enter the adult world with a plan, over the hookups she has had, and now roommates with Eli and Caleb, who she always is bickering with. Caleb and Gracie have constantly been at each other's throats since they met, but when thrown together as roommates, what happens when the close proximity starts affect them. Caleb and Gracie takes us one insanely banter filled, chemistry to melt the pages, and moments that make you swoon and take your heart on a rollercoaster of emotions that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Caleb and Gracie will steal your heart and you won't want it back.

    Murphy gets right to the heart of the matter in this love-hate relationship. The Junior is a heartbreaker that lays on the charm and gives you the feels. Caleb and Gracie are an easy love that I hated saying goodbye to.

    Up until this book, we knew Caleb as a manwhore. I wasn't sure he could be persuaded to give up that lifestyle. But... he did it. Ahhh Caleb. Totally here for the mushiness, dirty talk about sweet moments. Gracie is just the ideal counterpart to him. I love a strong heroine who owns her sexuality. These two are dynamite together. There is just the perfect amount of angst, fun times and conflict in this story.

    I am so in love with Monica’s stories and writing!! Sigh… anyway… this story was so amazing! I LOVE it when the girl isn’t virginal and innocent, she doesn’t want a commitment, she just wants to do her own thing! I seriously don’t see enough stories like this! I have loved Gracie since the beginning of this series and Caleb is so endearing. Absolutely thrilled they got together… their chemistry was undeniable and their romance just developed so authentically on its own.

Gracie has tried to deny her attraction to Caleb for years, but once they begin working and living together, will she be able to resist him? “Don’t break my heart. I don’t think I could take it.” Both Gracie and Caleb are so similar. They are afraid of love and commitment and are content to play the field. They like to avoid their feelings until they can no longer be ignored. Gracie, in particular, struggles with her feelings and being vulnerable. “Caleb matters. More than I want to admit.” Gracie is totally smitten with Caleb even though she does not want to admit it. She’s struggling with her future and how to adapt to graduating from college. She’s also scared that she doesn’t know how to love another person. I loved watching her flourish under Caleb’s care. “I think about you all the time—you’re never out of my thoughts. I just want to see you happy when you’re sad, and I want to make you feel better when you’re not well.” I absolutely ended up loving Caleb. Once he acknowledges that he wants to be with Gracie, he is all in. He can be crude and totally inappropriate, but he also says and does the sweetest things. He will do anything to keep Gracie safe, happy, and healthy and he melted my heart. Gracie really helped him grow and unlock his potential. “G, I’ve felt connected to you since the first night I met you. I saw you and it was like my brain said, ‘you want that one,’ he admits. And I feel like I’ve been chasing you ever since.” The push and pull of this enemies to lover’s romance was electric. The banter between Gracie and Caleb is adorable, funny, and HOT! These two generated some serious heat and were a perfect match. Now I can’t wait for The Senior!!

    4.50 Stars Since I started reading this author’s books back in the day (lol) I think that she has just gotten better and better with every book she has published. Especially the Callahan series and this College year stories. I am loving it 😊 Caleb when mentioned in the previous books always came across as a player, party animal and a real douchebag.

Especially the Callahan series and this College year stories. I am loving it 😊 Caleb when mentioned in the previous books always came across as a player, party animal and a real douchebag. But there was actually so much more to him. He so had a softer adorable and sweeter side to him. When Gracie needed a place to stay she moves in with Eli and Caleb and she gets a job at the same place as Caleb. And spending more time with him and she doesn’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Gracie has had an attraction for Caleb for a while but now that they are living and working together now it has become to much to resist him. Will she be able to let go and let him in and put her heart on the line or will she keep him away and loose a chance of something so much more? Both of these characters are so alike. Both of them are scared of commitment and falling in love and would rather just be out playing the field. But then again it is hard putting yourself out there and being vulnerable and giving someone the chance to hurt you. And that is what both of them had to decide. Will they give into love and put it all on the line! I loved their chemistry and I loved that their relationship wasn’t just physical from the start. I loved their story, loved the hate to love vibe they had going on. Just plain amazing story. Playboy falling in love, yes please… 😊 I am so looking forward to the next one in this series 😊 ❤ ❤ Read on behalf of Fay’s Corner

    I had been waiting for Caleb’s story since the very first book in this series, because he cracks me up so much! And while I was happy to see him and Gracie get together, and this was definitely a steamy story with some good banter between the two, in a way, I almost didn’t get the usual Caleb feelings I get from when he was just a character on the side. I don’t know if that’s just because when we only got to see him at those funny moments, we didn’t see all the serious sides to him as well? I ex I had been waiting for Caleb’s story since the very first book in this series, because he cracks me up so much!

I don’t know if that’s just because when we only got to see him at those funny moments, we didn’t see all the serious sides to him as well? I expected this book would be my favorite in the series because of the banter between Caleb and Gracie always was so good, and the sexual tension just rolled off the pages in the other stories. Now when the two of them got together in this story and things were going well, it was there. All of it. But the times when the two of them were fighting and ignoring the other one, or whatever, it just made the book drag a little for me at those times. And I got so mad at Gracie for saying what she did at the end that was really the final conflict for the two. It was one of those things that often irritates me in other stories. However, I do love the way the author handled their “kiss and make up” “figure sh**/stuff out moment”. That to me was realistic and was how people could really deal with that type of situation without all the drama that is usually added to romance novels. So in the end it all worked, it just wasn’t quite the Caleb book I’d expected. Review first published on Lisa Loves Literature.
