Studly Period (The Ivy Years #5.5) Reviews
Studly Period was an absolute delight to read. Released as a weekly serial exclusively through Bowen's newsletter, this 8 chapter story was a special treat for all fans of the New Adult series, The Ivy Years.
This is the story of how Harkness's French-Canadian hockey player Pepe - one of my favourite secondary characters from across the series - meets and falls for his new, nerdy freshman tutor, Josephine.
Their romance was short and sweet, and I adored every second of it. Waiting each we ...more
I’m so glad I saved the newsletters with the serial chapters intro and links until all 8 were written. Binge reading this one was a lot of fun and provided much needed stress relief. Thank you, Sarina Bowen!

Josephine is your everyday, nerdy, non-glam heroine, shy but assertive about what she wants, even when nerves threaten to get the better of her. Pepe is an adorable mix of "man-puppy", gentleman, and hockey player. Those who've read the rest of The Ivy Years will have com ...more
The only bad thing I can say is that it was WAY too short!
For a shortish read this packed a lot of punch because ... Pepe ♥
