Summary –

Fans of Monica Murphy and Tammara Webber will savor this New Adult novel—a story about coming of age in the heat of the moment—from Julie Cross, the internationally bestselling author of the Tempest trilogy.

I used to be “Isabel Jenkins, child prodigy.” As lame as that sounds, at least it was an identity. But now I’m not sure what I am. I just failed the most important exam of my life—the emotional readiness test required to get into a medical residency program—and it turns out my parents can’t stand each other. Now I’m trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of my life, and that means re-enrolling as a college freshman, but this time I’m shutting the books and majoring in being eighteen.

But so far, my roommate hates me and I’m not into the party scene. The only good thing about school has been getting to know my insanely hot RA. Marshall Collins makes me wonder about everything I missed while I was growing up too fast. Pretty soon we’re hanging out constantly, but for the first time, I find myself wanting more than a no-strings-attached physical relationship. And the lesson I really need is one Marsh definitely can’t teach me: love. Because I’m going to be alone forever if I don’t learn fast.

My Thoughts –

Third Degree is a great addition to the New Adult world of books.  It’s a story that’s different from most of the NA’s out now (bad boys, tats, parties, horrific pasts, etc).  I absolutely loved this.  Marshall and Izzy are fan-fricking-tastic together.  I love the homework/syllabus he gives to her.  They start off as friends and evolve into so much more and it is just awesome.  I laughed, I sighed and I overall loved it.  I read it in one sitting and wanted more when I was finished.  Great job to the author – I will definitely be reading more from her.
