The international bestselling Off-Campus series returns with a collection of four novellas by New York Times bestselling author Elle Kennedy! This brand-new installment provides the much-anticipated answer to the question: Where are they now?

Four stories. Four couples. Three years of real life after graduation...

A wedding.
A proposal.
An elopement.
And a surprise pregnancy.

Life after college for Garrett and Hannah, Logan and Grace, Dean and Allie, and Tucker and Sabrina, isn't quite what they imagined it would be. Sure, they have each other, but they also have real-life problems that four years at Briar U didn't exactly prepare them for. As it turns out, for these four couples, love is the easy part. Growing up is a whole lot harder.

Come for the drama, stay for the laughs! Catch up with your favorite Off-Campus characters as they navigate the changes that come with growing up and discover that big decisions can have big consequences...and big rewards.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working my way through this series this year. Meeting each of these roommates and watching them fall in love has been such a wonderfully pleasant distraction. I love these roommates and the women that have found a place in their lives. Of course, I was excited to pick up this final novel in the series and see how things are working out for each of the couples. I didn’t like this one nearly as much as I did the other books in the series but I did enjoy it enough to read it cover to cover in a single day.

In this book, we get to see a proposal, a pregnancy, a wedding, and a pact. Each couple takes center stage for a portion of the book but also appear in the other sections since they are all still incredibly close friends. I wouldn’t say that there were any real surprises in the book but it was still a lot of fun to read. This book had all of the humor, romance, and friendship bonds that I have grown to expect from the series. The creepy doll that links the stories was a little strange in my opinion but didn’t detract from my overall enjoyment of the book.

I would recommend this book to others. I would recommend reading this book after the other books in the series if at all possible since having some background on the various couples would be beneficial. I will definitely be reading more of this author’s work very soon.

I received a review copy of this book from Bloom Books.

  1. The doll was always creepy. It was interesting to resurrect that one from the earlier novels, though by no means, necessary. I am trash for epilogues and books like this are just one big epilogue. I was glad to catch up and get those Briar U cameos too (another thing I adore)

  2. Sorry that you didn’t enjoy this one as much as the others, but it still sounds like it had a lot going for it. Fun to get to catch up with all the previous couples.
