Flirt by M L Sparrow

Five Stars

I can’t believe what I just read. It was so real and raw I felt like I was living the author’s words. Riley has an addiction but she doesn’t see it that way. Cam has loved Riley for a really long time but doesn’t think she notices him. I loved every word of this story because it told a story that we need to hear. Kids are out here suffering and we have adults feeding them drugs. The pressure these kids feel to be perfect to perform perfectly is heavy. The author did a great jib highlighting the life of young adults on two different paths trying to meet in the middle. Cam wants to help Riley but it seems like she is just dragging him down. She doesn’t believe she needs help but clearly something needs to change. I felt angry at her parents and how they enabled her. The mom should’ve known that the manager was shady and kept him away. Over all it was a great story that made you want to hold Riley and tell her there was a better way and that you were there for her.

Flirt is book in What Happens On Campus series written by M.L. Sparrow and it the second book that I have read buy this author. Flirt is an adult sports /nerd romance that hits all the right spots. We get to see plenty of action on this campus. The characters are well written and are mature for their ages especially what they have been through. The plot was believable with college kids and their struggles and triumphs. We also get to see the awesome characters from book one Player….
Things aren’t what they appear to be Riley Murphy has to give up her promising gymnastics career due to a devastating injury, so she decides to join her twin sister at St Joseph’s University in Texas. Finding a best friend in her roommate, Chloe, she nonetheless finds herself going off the rails as she indulges in drugs, alcohol and boys.
Riley realizes with all the partying she has done that it turns into something she can’t control… Too ashamed to confide in her friends or family, and with a boyfriend who does nothing but feed her addictions, the person she turns to is Cameron Lucas, someone she knew as a child.
Cam has loved Riley since he was a kid and used to go to work with his mama at the Murphy estate, but she was always so far out of his league. Now he’s beginning to realize that he never really knew her in the first place… However, that realization only deepens his feelings.
But the question is, how far is he willing to go to help someone who won’t help them self? And can he discover the demons driving her to self-destruct? Can Cam save Riley? Will they have a happily ever after or a tragic ending.
I highly recommend this book/ series…

Flirt (What Happens On Campus Series Book #2) by M.L Sparrow – Review by Angela Hayes

5 Stars

 

Flirt is the second book in the What Happens on Campus series by M.L Sparrow. This book can be read as a standalone, which is what I did, but I can honestly say that I enjoyed it so much that I will be going back and diving into book one the first chance I get! This is one of the better college romances that I’ve read to date. It had everything you could want, and then some! I was so engrossed in it that I flew through the whole book in a matter of hours.

As with the other books of Ms. Sparrows that I have read, this book is beautifully written- the storyline definitely pulls you in and before you know it you’re hooked. The characters are so superbly crafted- not merely words on a page, they actually come to ‘life’ under Ms. Sparrows gifted fingers- becoming fully realised and complex  individuals who are realistic and believable- with their own personalities, quirks and flaws. This is yet again another style and ‘genre’ from some of Ms. Sparrows other books and prove just how talented she truly is- as she seems to be able to write any subject, any genre… and do it incredibly well.

Riley Murphy’s life had been turned upside down after a devastating incident. She ends up attending university in Texas, where her sister is also enrolled. She manages to form a close friendship with her roommate and is looking forward to the freedom that college life offers. As her social life ramps up, Riley seems set on a course of self-destruction- large does of alcohol, drugs, and college boys quickly become her focus and she begins to lose control.

Cameron Lucas (Cam) has known Riley since they were children and he’s loved her all this time. But will he be able to help her through this, especially when it seems she isn’t willing to help herself? What was the incident that upended her life and set her on a self-destructive path? Will she find her way again, or will her demons win out in the end? What does the future hold for these two?

Another brilliant read from this gifted writer!

 

Thank you, Ms. Sparrow!

Flirt: A College Romance (What Happens on Campus Book 2) by ML Sparrow​ is the second book in the series. It follows a college student who has been struggling to find her way after her life long dreams came to an end. The story was a bit of a roller coaster ride, a bit haunting and a bit on the dark side when having to deal with issues of a young adult who doesn’t make smart choices. I wanted to smack some sense into the main female character of this story but it was a good read. Reading YA stories often instill angst in me as a reader and this had a whole lot of them.
If you like angst in your YA college romances then this is a read for you.

Flirt: A College Romance is the second book in the What Happens on Campus series by M L Sparrow. This story was a lot heavier than I was expecting even though I knew what Riley was like in the first book. Found myself wiping tears away a couple of times.

Riley was hurting and didn’t know how to deal with it. Instead of talking to friends or family she starts partying and it goes down hill rapidly.

Cameron is a sweetheart and I wasn’t sure if he was right for Riley for that reason. He hasn’t had the easiest life but is making sure he has a better life in the future.

There were a few instances I wanted to just shake Riley and everyone else because of the way they were acting with her and found myself having a hard time being sympathetic even though I knew I should be.

I’m already looking forward to the next book in the series and hope it comes out soon.

Loved Loved Loved it!! Flirt is Book 2 in the What Happens on Campus series by ML Sparrow and I found it to be fantastic! I was drawn to Riley and her insane drama as she tries to reason with her lost career, her new found drug addiction, her role at college, and her new and extremely unlikely relationship with Cameron. She not only puts herself in dangerous situations time and time again, but she brings all the others around her crashing down too. Although I couldn’t relate to Riley, I am more than sympathetic to Cameron and how devoted he is to keeping her safe as well as on the straight and narrow, while also finding a way to maintain the same level of love and respect for her, at the same time as watching her destroy herself. I’m crazy excited to read what comes next in this series! 5 stars!

Flirt, by M.L. Sparrow, is the second book in the What Happens on Campus series. This is a contemporary new adult/college romance which features characters introduced within the first book of the series as supporting and/or minor characters. Flirt is Riley’s story – in Player, Riley was the life of the party, all out and no holding back female. I was excited that her story was next, there just had to be more than the girl testing her limits/extremes at the start of the series. In Flirt, we get a much deeper view into her and where this story takes her, bringing in Cam and what impact he may or may not have in her life. I liked the college setting the author chose for this series. It gives us something more along with the drama and romance that is the underlying theme of this story while tackling some tough topics. At parts through the story, my heart broke for the characters. M.L. Sparrow did a great job in this story/series and look forward to reading more.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a great story! Flirt is the second book in the What Happens on Campus series by M.L. Sparrow. You can read this book as a standalone but I would recommend that you read this in sequence. So this story follows Riley and her journey with loss of a career, addiction and finding who she is. This story also follows Cameron. The boy that has been in love with Riley since he could remember. While Riley goes through her tough times she comes to find love with Cameron. Cameron really helps her with her growth and shows her what true love means. Riley was headed on her way to the Olympics as a gymnast when she hurt herself and wasn’t able to continue her career. So she decided to go to college with her twin sister. Those two couldn’t be any different! But college wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be. Riley met a guy who introduced her to all kinds of addictions. This story was definitely a roller coaster but thankfully one that has a HEA. There weren’t too many sexy scenes. This story didn’t need a whole lot of them. But the ones that were there were pretty steamy. Addiction is difficult for anyone, even a rich girl that had huge aspirations. But its how you deal with it that counts and that’s what this book is all about. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I would recommend this series to anyone!

Flirt is the second book in the What Happens on Campus series by M.L. Sparrow. This book picks up around where Player left off, but this book can be read as a standalone (recommend reading Player). Riley is a little lost after losing her gymnastics career and wanted to try the college life. Well, she tried the wrong college life – drinking, drugs dealer “boyfriend” and sleeping around. Cameron is your typical good guy; he loves math and science, doesn’t drink much and go to church. Cameron has always been in love with Riley since they somewhat grow up together. Riley needed someone to put her on the right track before something really bad happened but is Cameron the right person and why is Riley really acting like this?

I really liked this book; Riley and Cameron were just the right balance for each other. At times I couldn’t believe that Riley was so selfish and didn’t think of anyone else. I wanted to smack her friends for waiting so long to do something about it. But I guess you have to let someone fall before you help to pick them up.

I’m looking forward to the next book but I have a feeling I’m not going to like what happened to Terri. A box of tissue will be on standby.

Player is book one in What Happens On Campus series written by M.L. Sparrow and it the first book that I have read buy this author. Player is an adult sports romance that hits all the right spots. We get to see plenty of action on this campus. The characters are well written and are mature for their ages especially what they have been through. The plot was believable with college kids and their struggles and triumphs.

Chloe Newman accepts a scholarship to study a St. Joseph’s University after a tragic accident which leaves her tormented by guilt, she needs a fresh start so she leaves England and heads to Texas.
Here she meets the schools charming quarterback on her first night. However, Parker Mitchell is a player both on and off the field.

Parker has sworn not to have a girlfriend while in school but that’s thrown out the window because he is immediately fascinated by Chloe and, after a rocky start, they manage to find a way to make their relationship work despite interference from others on campus, including Parkers jealous ex, and the ghosts that haunt Chloe’s conscience. But, the real test comes when they visit Parker’s family over Christmas break and he finds himself being pulled back into their lifestyle.
Can these two move past their past and become stronger? Will Chloe forgive Parker for his mistake or will she walk away? Can these two have a happily ever after?
I loved this book and can’t wait to read book two in this series….
