Book Review: Second Semester by Q.B. Tyler

November 10, 2019

Second Semester by Q.B. Tyler
Serena Mitchell, very unlike her free-spirited sister played by the rules.
Poised, polite and polished, she observed the world behind square frames and a guarded heart.
But then she met Landon West and she learned some rules were highly overrated.
Fast forward three months:
Serena Mitchell has changed.
She was in love. With her boss. With her father’s best friend.
A father who is dangerously close to finding out their secret.
This wasn’t supposed to happen. She wasn’t prepared to lose anything at the end of the school year except mind numbing orgasms.
Not her father. Not the love of her life. And certainly not her heart.
Second Semester can be read as a stand-alone and the second in the Campus Tales Series.

Second Semester is the second book in the Campus Tales Series. It's a stand alone novella, but I highly recommened that you read First Semester because you get to see some characters from there in Second Semester!

OH MY GOD! Q.B. TYLER FUCKING KILLED IT! Absolutely KILLED IT! I fell in love with this story by the first page! I cannot tell you all how much I love forbidden AND age gap romances! SOLD, I was completely sold the minute Tyler released the blurb! And that cover? IT'S ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! It's exactly how I envision Serena!

Serena Mitchell has taken up an intenrship at her father, Preston Mitchell's, law firm. Though, what she didn't expect was to be attracted to her boss, Landon West. What she didn't expect was a relationship to form, a secret relationship.
The last thing she expected was to fall in love.
I fell in complete love with Serena! She's innocent, smart, independent, and an all around good girl. She's the total opposite of her sister, Skyler. I found Serena so relatable in many ways. She had a quirkiness about her that I couldn't help but love! And also, I fell in love with her innocence, the way she carried herself, the way she had compassion towards others, and her just being her.
That's how you know QB has written such an amazing heroine, the way you're able to connect to her.
Now, Landon West... I was totally swooning over him, HARD. Landon West is a man who's trying to figure out how to balance his life around work, a divorce, and a son who he's on the best terms with. I felt for Landon and what he was going through, and even though he didn't handle everything in the best ways, he still tried. He was very well known around the office, and yet, the moment he locked eyes with Serena, he couldn't beliebe the twenty-one year old who was standing in front of him. He didn't know the magnitude of how attracted he'd be to her. He didn't know the extent of how far they would go.
He didn't know that he'd fall in love with her.
At what lengths will Serena and Landon go to keep this secret hidden from Preston Mitchell? Will they get caught?

I can't tell you how much I loved the progression from the first time they meet and everything else that happened in between. Every time Serena and Landon came together, you can tell that the feelings they had for each other was present.
They may not have said it out loud in many words in the beginning, but it was there.

It was loud.
It was clear.
I cannot wait to see what Tyler has in store for us in her future works! I'm invested deeply into her Campus Tales Series, and I never want out!
