Drew: Book One of the Perfectly Independent Series by Amanda Shelley – Review by Daryian Lucas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Abby is a studious student who has dreams of becoming a pediatrician and has been on a road to success during her entire college career. What happens when Drew, the school’s star D1 basketball athlete, chooses her to be his lab partner? Drew is a book about two very determined college students who are trying to become doctors and fall in love during the process. I do wish the tense scenes had a little more drama to them. Overall I liked this book.

This book is awe inspiring. Pure determination, sheer will, and commitment are the traits I see in Drew and Abby. In the beginning of this book it shows a deep friendship blossoming between classmates. I think it’s a big coincidence that both Drew and Abby want to attend medical school. I loved this book it had a flow to it so it was a easy fast paced read.

I truly enjoyed this book. It was a sweet and lovable feel good romance. It will tug at your heart strings from start to finish.
Drew and Abigail start off as lab partners with mixed feelings about being partnered together and what the results will be. As they spend more time together they start to find a connection that is beyond friendship.
Both are organized, driven, and have similar goals within the medical field. They find that dating was not the original plan but once they set out its impossible to imagine not being together. They have a unique love story, and its one where its purely love, respect, and that feeling of a true soulmate. I would definitely read this book again.

Drew by Amanda Shelley, is a story of two truly independent characters on a journey of “will they or won’t they”. I smiled, laughed, and cried throughout the book. Drew and Abby encapsulate the theory of being more than what meets the eye. Lovely written with complex characters that I enjoyed so much that I did not want it to end. I can not wait to read the next book by this author.

Drew: Book One of the Perfectly Independent Series by Amanda Shelley

This is the first book I’ve read by Shelley. It won’t be my last book by Shelley. Drew and Abby are so darn cute and I loved it!

Abby has her mind set on getting into med school. When in chemistry she finds that her lab partner isn’t such a jerk after all. She ends up falling hard for him and is scared that it won’t work out. The quote I chose for Abby is: “It won’t take me too long. I’ve worked on it between classes so if I focus, I should be able to knock it out sooner.”

Drew is a basketball player and doesnt have time to date with his schedule. Getting into med school has been a priority since college came into play. Then he meets Abby and things change. The quote I chose for Drew is: “You’re not a slacker. Trust me. If it wasn’t basketball season, I probably would’ve done the same thing and waited to work out this afternoon. But I don’t exactly get to choose my schedule most days, so I’m stuck with what I’ve got. Those are the breaks for being a Division-One athlete and trying to graduate on time. It’s all about time management. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining about my circumstances. I’m just sayin’ that in the off season, my schedule’s a bit different.”

Highly recommended for Sports Romance lovers.

Drew: Book One of the Perfectly Independent Series by Amanda Shelley is a fun, entertaining, and easy college romance read. Not only does Ms. Shelley give us great characters, and a wonderful plot she also gives a real feel for how hard life is with all of the pressures of college. I’m personally a romance novel lover and Ms. Shelley just made it so easy to fall in love with this charming and wonderful piece of work. Her main characters on paper seem to be complete and polar opposites, but doesn’t chemistry teach us that opposites attract? So even though these two are completely different will they attract to one another? You’ll have to read Drew: Book One of the Perfectly Independent Series by Amanda Shelley for yourself to find out.

Oh my goodness, this was an entertaining read. Drew set out to avoid the ladies. He though he found that from his lab partner. Boy, did she prove him wrong. The chemistry is awesome. I personally loved the interaction between them. Their friends were an integral part and helped bring it together. The epilogue just about ripped me up. It was so beautiful and heartfelt. You must read this. I don’t usually read sport romance but it was soooo worth it. Strongly recommend.

I love a sports romance book….and I loved this book!!! The chemistry between Drew and Abby!! Wow. When Drew goes to undergrad school to become a pediatric oncologist he walks into his chemistry lab and picks Abby as his partner. He believes Abby would not be much of a distraction…boy was he wrong. Abby is also focused on her studies as she needs to graduate and move on to medical school as well. As she opens up her heart to Drew…it really made me swoon! I loved this story and highly recommend if you love a sports romance and swoon worthy chemistry :).

I really enjoyed this sweet college romance with an opposites attracts theme to it. Abby is studious and determined on studying hard and not getting distracted to become a doctor, so she definitely does not need to be lab partners with the one boy who makes her heart race, her palms sweat and her knees go weak, Drew. Drew is also not looking for any distractions, but his focus is more on his sport, as the team captain of his basketball team. Drew is not interested in the girls that hang around him and ‘chase jerseys’, but when he’s partnered with Abby who doesn’t even seem to know who he is suddenly Drew is very interested in her.
Despite being attracted to Drew, Abby just thinks he is a typical jock but the more time they spend together she realises there is more to him than that. Drew’s rule of not dating during the season fails as he finds Abby more intriguing the more he gets to know her. However, both Drew and Abby are worried that if they let themselves fall in love then they will be sacrificing their future goals. This is a heartwarming romance between two very different but equally likeable and relatable characters and I felt engaged with them both throughout this story. The storyline flows well and the characters and the setting are bought to life through the descriptive narrative. I was hooked from page one and thought it was a great read.

This was an enjoyable and sweet read. Drew is set on medical school. He doesn’t have time to date between basketball and studies. He sits next to the most studious girl he can find for a lab partner, thinking that she would never distract him.
Abby is set on acing all her classes so she can graduate a year early and head to medical school. When Drew sits next to her, she feels that is about to go out the window. He hadn’t even been sitting next to her for 30 seconds before he is bombarded with a slew of people talking to him.
They slowly learn that they have judged each other too quickly. Abby is most definitely going to be a distraction and Drew Is serious about his studies. They find that stereotypes aren’t always correct. The friendship that builds before anything else is what dreams are made of. They more they get to know each other the more they find out how very much they have in common. I loved Drew and how he really was a nice guy, even cancelling a study session and taking her out to dinner when he found out Abby agreed to study on her birthday. He really is the boy next door.
