We get all our favorite College Years couples, and some moments with the OG Callahan couples as well all throughout Ava and Eli’s story. It’s just a great read overall. So emotional. Like I really can’t say that enough I felt every single emotion from happy to mad to heartbroken while reading this book. Ok that’s all I’m saying. This series is a ride and must be read in order. So go… read them all now. [NOTE: Ava and Eli’s story starts in The Callahan series with Addicted to Him and Meant to Be.] *there is content in this one that some may find triggering.

    I’m sad this is the final book of this series, but what a way to wrap it up….with Eli and Ava. When I found out that Monica Murphy was going to return to one of my favorite couples for The Senior, I was excited and honestly, a bit nervous. What was she going to put my Eli and Ava through? Let's just say that she puts them, and us, through the wringer. The drama, the angst, the misunderstanding, the stubbornness, the pain, the love. All. Of. It! And it is worth it!! Eli and Ava have been together f I’m sad this is the final book of this series, but what a way to wrap it up….with Eli and Ava. When I found out that Monica Murphy was going to return to one of my favorite couples for The Senior, I was excited and honestly, a bit nervous. What was she going to put my Eli and Ava through? Let's just say that she puts them, and us, through the wringer. The drama, the angst, the misunderstanding, the stubbornness, the pain, the love. All. Of. It! And it is worth it!! Eli and Ava have been together for 4 years. Since their high school days, but then the majority of their relationship has been spent in distance. First by being in two different rival high schools, next with Eli in college and Ava still in High school and finally with them at two different colleges, hours apart. But these two made it work over the years. And they continued to make it work until Eli gave Ava an ultimatum. Either him or her college trip to Spain. But Ava knew she had to do something for herself. And she chose Spain. To see two characters that we've known and love through the years has been fun to experience. They've grown and changed and figured out what is important to them. Eli wears his emotions on his sleeve at the detriment to his relationship and football. But he's learning by his many mistakes. And Ava is still coming into her own. She is stubborn, just like her man, but she also knows what she wants. Will all of this be too much for either of them to accept? Are Ava and Eli growing apart?? Man, the ups and downs of these two was strenuous. But their love for one another was obvious. And their chemistry? My, how it’s grown up! I liked that Ms Murphy took the chance on this existing couple and made them work for it. It may have stressed me out, but I understood it. And having their crew around them, supporting them every step of the way?? Perfect. It was a great journey for every couple we've been introduced to in this series and a chance for us to get to see them all one last time. While I love Eli and Ava, I didn't want to see them fall out. I wasn't sure about this story. But Monica knew that these two needed more experience, to grow and to work and work and work for their love and their future. It wasn't easy and it came with some pain, but it was worth it. And the epilogue?? Just what we needed for us Callahan lovers.

    I don’t even know where to begin with this book. I am absolutely blown away with these characters and especially this story. Throughout many books, Eli Bennett and Ava Callahan have captured the hearts of readers. Throwing us for a curve, this story has them broken up. Poor, sweet, damaged Eli feels that Ava puts him second in her life. When she gets an amazing opportunity, he breaks things off. The struggle between these two will have you up and down wondering if they will get back together. N I don’t even know where to begin with this book.

    I just finished proofreading this one and I am so overwhelmed with emotion! I have loved this series, these characters and this world so much that it’s hard to say goodbye yet it’s time for them all to move on from The College Years, and M Murphy wrapped up this series with a bright red bow on top! I loved Eli Bennett and Ava in their high school years. But now - they are SO much more. They’re the same angsty, heated, hot couple but now are older, more mature, and know what they want.

They’re both still stubborn as all heck but have learned when to bend and not break. Their chemistry is fire, and their loyalty to one another brought me to tears at times. They face tough life challenges head on and I cried tears of pain and joy for them. In the end - I wanted to stand up and give them a standing ovation for their determination and resilience!🙌🏻 Eli Bennett stole my heart in this book and his character growth stole my soul. He’ll always be my #1!! Bravo M Murphy for writing a bold, emotional and passionate ending to this series!

Ava and Eli have been together for 4 years now and she’s returned from an extended study abroad program in Spain that Eli did not support. ie He gave her a typical Eli ultimatum that Ava didn’t give in to and left anyway. Go team Ava! She deserved time to experience something just for herself but they were both left heart broken and broken up. Upon her return, they were absolutely not able mend things because the whole experience has shown them the cracks in what they thought was a strong foundation. It cast doubt on all they counted on and expected from each other. I was 60% through another book but as soon as I got the email saying my ARC of The Senior had arrived, I totally did something I rarely ever do and started this one RIGHT AWAY. I devoured it in a day and couldn’t get enough of this story of love, growth and relationship redemption. I was absolutely on edge and filled with apprehension at some points not just because of Ava and Eli but their friend group as a whole. Since starting college they’ve all grown closer but the whole Ava/Eli broken up dynamic really added a layer of reality and maturity to their friendships. Monica Murphy has absolutely outdone herself with Ava and Eli’s story. They’re explosive, stubborn and so incredibly in love. They deserved all the words Monica bestowed on them and she did it in a heartfelt and authentic way. Theirs is an epic love story and their 3 books lets readers savour every moment with these two. The College Years Series is hands down one of the best new adult series EVER. All the characters are memorable and lovable and I’m so sad we’re at the end. Now I’m ready and freaking excited for Beck’s story! As a diehard fan of all things Callahan, I was BESIDE myself when I saw another book AFTER Beck’s listed under the Callahans Series. There is a God or at least a very benevolent Angel of an author named Monica Murphy 😇♥️ Do not wait or hesitate to one-click this one. It’s all worth it and it’s all soooo good! I was kindly given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    This was so unexpectedly good. I love it when there's history between a couple and that was my first green flag for this book. I also loved the characters. There was just something so real abt them. I feel like it was a pretty good portrayal of a college relationship and even though Eli acted like such an ass, I couldn't help but love him.

    5 SENIOR STARS!! I absolutely loved this book....this whole series has been amazing, but this is my favorite. Eli and Ava engraved their name on my heart, with all their emotions and love. Monica Murphy is one of my favorite authors and this is why.

It's obvious that she's not putting him first (again, we all know this is crazy talk but we need to let Eli come to this realization on his own). The book starts out with my sweet angel babies broken up, and I think it was done perfectly. Eli has grown up from the hot headed, big mouthed player he was in high school, but he's still young and has a lot of growing to still do. There was a lot of back and forth, which I felt to my core. I imagined this was me in high school/college and everything was pretty spot on. Both Ava and Eli had a lot of maturing to do and hard choices to make. They needed to communicate (which at that age is pretty much non existent) and while some things I felt were glossed over and forgiven very easily, overall I thought this was a great representation of college life and young love. I'm so glad we saw more of Eli and Ava because I can't get enough of their journey. It is just proof that we all still have growing to do and it's not all sunshine and rainbows. Everyone in the relationship has to work at it.

I laughed, I cried, I swooned, breathlessly consum My heart is overflowing with love! Love for these characters, love this series, and love for my favorite Monica Murphy couple of all time. The Senior was everything I wanted and then some- all of the heart squishing, angsty magic that I expected yet completely unexpected in every way. What a perfect, bittersweet, heart-aching and swoony conclusion to the series that reminds us just how complicated it can be to mature - all while falling in love. I laughed, I cried, I swooned, breathlessly consumed by every single word. Ava and Eli are inexplicably special- and the Senior delivers a story that is worthy of my ravenous love for them and a story that amplifies it in its charm and sincerity. Truth be told, I was hella nervous to read The Senior. I had 100% faith in Monica, but these two are my literal all time favorite MM couple ever, and one of my favorite new adult romance couples of all time. Their love story had been told, we had an HEA, and I was all cozy in my Ava-Eli happiness bubble, content with where they ended. But as we got to see the other couples come together in the College Years, we’d been seeing small cracks in their seemingly impenetrable connection. And, I hated that for them. Though it’s refreshing and REAL, I was scared to see the couple I love fall apart, and even though I knew Monica would put them back together eventually, I was worried they’d be like a broken vase- never as perfect to me, whole and fixed, but just not the same. But trust in Monica, I did- and I’m so glad. Because the end result isn’t a glued together replica- she breaks them and she rebuilds them even better, somehow even more perfect than they were before. And somehow with me falling even more in love with them. The journey is HARD- because Monica breaks them, and she breaks them deeply, painfully- and in many ways. I won’t say much because there are some real twists to this story- I thought I had it all figured out, and then a new obstacle would arise, and more heartache. Smartly, we’re spared seeing some of the ugliness that led them to this place- and that is so brilliant. Because not only do we not have to live with two soulmates shattering, but we get to focus our energy on the aftermath. Monica really immerses us in their angst. AND IT IS ANGSTY. LIke you want to shake them, why are they so stubborn and indecisive, they are making me crazy angsty. They are a mess- and their story is messy. Painful in places, emotionally raw, intense. But at the core we still have this beautiful couple we adore, and even when they can’t get on the same page or get past their issues, the crux of them remains the same- these two are soulmates, so emotionally connected that they have the power to bring out the best and worst in each other, but always better TOGETHER. And now they have to figure out just how to get back to that place- and if the emotional damage they’ve done is too overpowering for their greatest truth- which is that they can’t stop loving each other. Monica writes some of the most compelling new adult stories around- because she lets her characters act young, be the newly formed adults they are. She lets them be immature, be selfish, not yet fully developed emotionally. Her characters are growing up and learning to be in love the first time while also figuring out who they are as people. And the Senior is such a compelling example of how Monica Murphy develops characters as they grow- as they evolve. I didn’t know I needed the Senior, but I did. Because Ava and Eli were not grown up- they were two teens who fell in love hard, but they didn’t yet know who or what they were as people. And in that formative time, they were so wrapped up in each other, it’s like they forgot themselves. They forgot to face their own issues, and they didn’t prioritize the emotional growth they each needed- to be better partners to each other, but also to grow into the adults they wanted to be. And in this aspect, the Senior sparkles- it’s a heartfelt, and realistic depiction of two kids becoming adults, and the growing pains of their romance trying to adapt with them. I could seriously read book after book of these two characters, so this is a bittersweet goodbye to the series, and a fond farewell to these two characters, though I’m hopeful we’ll see them pop up in other places. The finale of this could not be anymore perfect- I wept, more than once- in sadness and in joy, brimming with a contented pride that our sweet Ava and Eli are left better than we found them. That they’ve somehow deepened and enriched a love I thought was already perfect. My heart is so full- even if this is a tearful goodbye to the college years and this brilliant and lovable cast of characters.

    “She is by far the most important thing in my life. More important than football. Than my family. She is my family. My life. My light. My everything.” The Senior is the fourth and final book in the College Years series and follows Ava and Eli, who we previously met in The Callahan series. I found this installment perfectly concluded the series, but also Ava and Eli's story. It was wonderful to be back with the Callahans again and the characters from the other series because I've missed them a lot “She is by far the most important thing in my life. More important than football. Than my family. She is my family. My life. My light. My everything.” The Senior is the fourth and final book in the College Years series and follows Ava and Eli, who we previously met in The Callahan series. I found this installment perfectly concluded the series, but also Ava and Eli's story. It was wonderful to be back with the Callahans again and the characters from the other series because I've missed them a lot! Ava and Eli are both very frustrating and stubborn characters, and the fact that they don't study at the same college affects their relationship a lot, to the point of breaking up. Now that Ava is back from her European study abroad program, they keep running into each other because of their mutual group of friends. From that point on, there is a lot of back and forth between Ava and Eli as they reflect on their relationship and future together. Their chemistry was on fire. They shared so many angsty but also more emotional moments that made me shed a few tears. I love them so much, and they are still one of my favorite couples from Monica Murphy! Ava stood up for herself a lot and was honest with Eli, while he had great character development. He is still as infuriating as he was in The Callahan series, but I can't help but be drawn to him. It was fascinating to see Ava and Eli grow from high school and become more mature. Their love for each other is still so beautiful, and it's incredible to see how loyal they are to each other. This book made me love Ava and Eli even more than I thought I could, and they more than deserved to have three books! As always, the side characters are great and so supportive of Ava and Eli. I adore their group of friends, and I'm not ready to say goodbye. Also, the crumbs about JakeHannah and DiegoJocelyn were everything. I need more of these two couples, and especially a DiegoJocelynGigi family novella!! I'm NOT giving up. Overall, The Senior was everything I could have hoped for to conclude the College Years series. The epilogues had me in tears, I love these characters so much!! Ava and Eli deserve the world, and I'm definitely not ready to say goodbye to them or all the associated characters from the Callahan universe. Nonetheless, I can't wait to read Beck's book, and I also need to dive into Drew and Fable's books ASAP!! *ARC kindly provided by the author and Valentine PR in exchange for an honest review

    I mean, it's another touchdown! Monica Murphy brings us back into the College Years and our fave pair - Eli and Ava.

    I knew I was going to finish this book in one sitting before I even started it and I was right! I even got annoyed that my friends were texting me while I was reading haha, but I'm going to keep this short since it would be so easy to give away spoilers. Ava and Eli broke my heart in this book and slowly put it back together. I didn't see a lot of this book coming especially the second half, and while it was tragic, it was also wonderful to see the strength of the friendships that came out of it.

Ava and Eli are my absolute favorite couple in the Monica Murphy world and if I could have a thousand books of them, I would read them all immediately! If this is the end, then I'm so glad this is how their story went!

She created this world with these amazing characters that leaves you obsessed and thinking about them days later. As soon as I started the prologue of 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘰𝘳, I was hooked. From the very first page I was so consumed by Eli and Ava - how they would work through all their issues and make it out together. The angst, the chemistry, the drama, the heartache and all the tender poignant moments throughout their story made me such an emotional mess - I literally felt them all. ⠀ I prolonged reading the conclusion of 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘊𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘨𝘦 𝘚𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴 and the finale to Eli and Ava’s story for as long as I could. I didn’t want it to be the end and I didn’t want to say goodbye to this world. Eli and Ava will always have a special place in my heart. Eli Bennett - I swear I’m utterly in love with him. Seeing how much he grew into the man we all knew he could be made me emotional. I can beg Monica everyday for another Eli and Ava installment that I would devour just as much as I did in every book about them. I can’t get enough of these two. They are hands down my favorite couple that Monica Murphy has ever written. ⠀ I loved seeing the entire crew back together one last time. The epilogue is absolutely everything. It was so heartwarming and wrapped up each of the characters stories and the series perfectly. I savored every word, every sentence, every emotion I felt while reading this book. And at the end, I hugged my kindle as I shed a few tears. What a ride. And I miss them already.

    5 Star Review of The Senior (College Years #4) by Monica Murphy I knew going in to this story that this was the last book in the series and ending it with Eli and Ava seemed only fitting. They’ve been together through thick and thin for over fours years and despite the fact that they have done the long distance relationship they have survived or have they? The Senior was well written, full of angst, drama and miss communications. Ms Murphy will rip you apart but then put you back together again an 5 Star Review of The Senior (College Years #4) by Monica Murphy I knew going in to this story that this was the last book in the series and ending it with Eli and Ava seemed only fitting. They’ve been together through thick and thin for over fours years and despite the fact that they have done the long distance relationship they have survived or have they? The Senior was well written, full of angst, drama and miss communications. Ms Murphy will rip you apart but then put you back together again and that’s what happened whilst reading The Senior. However their is tension in their relationship and when Eli pushes Ava to decide between him and a college trip to Spain she feels she has no choice but to chose Spain. I was so frustrated with Eli I wanted to smack him across the back of the head at times. The chemistry between them is just as intense as always, their love is still as deep but they have grown apart. Both Eli and Ava are stubborn and independent people, so who will win this battle of wills? Or will they be torn apart once and for all ? One click and find out.

    2.5 Stars. I'm not sure if I was rooting for Ava and Eli to make it or if I was hoping they would move on to a less toxic relationship with someone new. This book was high on fighting and angst and low on the romance. 2.5 Stars.

Eli comes so close to edging out Jordan Tuttle in the best book boyfriend category even when he is being a jerk. I can’t say enough about the amazing story all the characters and pulling in everyone for one last time. It has felt like years with these characters. Eli and Ava have had an interesting relationship where some times it’s clear that they are both stubborn and have insecurities that they let take over.

When they break up Eli feels like he lost more than just his girl and he lets his mouth get him in trouble. I don’t want to give away the story but I’ll say that these two are in for a ride and it will take some compromise, listening and a whole lot of love for them to get to the end and Monica takes you on an amazing journey to get there. I have always had a soft spot for Eli but after this book I don’t think I’ll let him go. Amazing story, series and characters. Thank

    Eli Bennet is a fan favorite for sure. The way he and Ava love each other is the best part of the whole series. The back and forth in this book got on my nerves real bad. Eli was on my shit list for most of the hook too. I couldn’t stand how stubborn and dumb he was being! Ugh…men! Ava is my favorite female character of the series. She’s bold, strong, and beautiful! That girl deserves everything and more. Love her so much! Which is why I hated on Eli so bad. Get your head out of your ass, Eli! Of Eli Bennet is a fan favorite for sure.

I love the Callhans so much and can’t wait for more books…ahem, Beck!… Overall, this was a beautiful end to Ava and Eli’s story. The book had me feeling sad, angry, and eventually, all the love. *Thank you to the author for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    Gah, I can't even express how much I've loved reading about all of the Callahans, and all of their friends, all the way back to the beginning with Drew and Fable in One Week Girlfriend back in 2013! The Senior is bittersweet though, because it's the end of an Era. Eli and Ava were everything. I felt all of their angst and emotions, right down to my soul, and cried right along with them! Each book written by Monica seems to become my new favorite, and this one is right up there!

This is a book I did not know I needed in my life. I loved to witness their journey from high school, from sneaking around during their high school years to owning up to their responsibilities as they grow up. Ava and Eli are facing a rough patch in their relationship. Their love for each other knows no bounds but they both can be really stubborn. But they both know how miserable they are without each other so it's about time they communicate properly,really let each other know what they are thinking and feeling, and own up to their decisions in order to truly live their happily ever after. What I loved about this book is how real it felt. The problems Eli and Ava faced, the decisions and sacrifices,the fights and misunderstandings, the vulnerability and fear of losing your loved one forever- I just felt every emotion that this couple went through. Monica Murphy has a way of writing that just makes me feel so related to her stories no matter what. I highly recommend this book and do read the previous two books featuring this couple-so totally worth it. Thank you Monica Murphy and ValentinePr for the arc in exchange of my honest review.

I'm completely in love with Ava and Eli, and maybe even a little obsessed at this point. Knowing their story from the very beginning in Addicted To Him and Meant To Be and everything they've been through together, my love for this only increases. And when I say this is a rollercoaster I truly mean it. My heart was broken and I cried but also smiled and laughed. I love how this book shows that the happily ever after doesn't end there, so much more happens after and that it's not only unicorns and rainbows... So in love with this series and each character! I'm definitely going back and reading each book in both the series! So so good! "How can I forget the boy who owns my heart?" *I received this ARC from Valentine PR but the thoughts are completely my own.*

    This is the last book in the College Years Series and endit it with Eli and Ava seemed just perfect. This is a couple who have weathered the storms, have been together through thick and thin and for over four years that have tried to survived a long distance relationship so now it’s their time or is it… Ava and Eli shouldn’t work, they are both determined, stubborn characters but time and time again hey prove everybody wrong as they negotiate the twists and turns in their journey.

A perfect book to finish the series on.

    OH MY HEART!!!!! Hello book hangover but oh in such a good way. The Senior is a fantastic I want to give it more then five star read. This is everything I was hoping and more when it comes to Ava and Eli. You just may need a few tissues for this one as Ava and Eli try and navigate through their stress filled senior year. Ava is still sweet and has grown so much along with being so stubborn too. Eli has his issues but you understand them in many ways. He is also hardheaded and stubborn too. Eli a OH MY HEART!!!!!

You feel for Eli and Ava as they work to figure out what the future holds for them together. This is an emotional filled read that may just have you yelling at Monica Murphy for everything she puts us as readers through as well as the turmoil that Ava and Eli experience. I applaud her for everything she gives us on these pages. What a way to end the College Years. I could not get enough of this one. I loved every emotionally filled, heart aching moment. You need to one click this one.

    Edited Manuscript Eli & Ava put each other through the ringer and then some, so be prepared to want to shake and then hug both of them.

    The Senior is the conclusion to Murphy's College years series. It's Eli and Ava's story. Anyone who read previous books featuring these two, know that their love story is a very emotional and angsty. And the Senior just adds to the craziness. I can't lie – I did struggle with this one. There is a lot of back and forth between these two; not just with each other but with themselves. Honestly, at times, it just became too much and I wanted to yell "just the move the eff on!"

Yes, Eli and Ava's story will frustrate you but I will tell you that it's worth it. The Senior is the perfect portrayal of a true love found at a young age and struggling to find yourself at the same time. Monica is one of my go-to authors for college/new adult romance because she writes it so incredibly well. She truly brings life to her characters and their stories. Each of the books in this series can easily be read as standalones. I had not read any of the books that these characters were in previously and no had no problems following the story lines. Another great read from Monica Murphy!
