{Jamie #Review} New Adult Contemporary Romance: Four Years Later by Monica Murphy

FOUR YEARS LATER by Monica Murphy
Series: One Week Girlfriend #4
Genre: New Adult
Format: ebook via Netgalley
Length: 320 pages
Publisher: Bantam (March 4, 2014)

New Adult bestselling author Monica Murphy winds up her sensational series with this sexy story of two college kids with nothing in common but a bunch of baggage and a burning attraction.

Over. That about sums up everything in my life. Suspended from my college football team and forced to cut back my hours at The District bar because of my crappy grades, I can’t keep turning to my sister, Fable, and her pro-football playing husband, Drew, to bail me out. I just can’t seem to find my own way. Weed and sex are irresistible temptations—and it’s messed up that I secretly hand over money to our junkie mom. A tutor is the last thing I want right now—until I get a look at her.

Chelsea is not my type at all. She’s smart and totally shy. I’m pretty sure she’s even a virgin. But when she gives me the once over with those piercing blue eyes, I’m really over. But in a different way. I won’t deny her ass is killer, but it’s her brain and the way she seems to crave love—like no one’s ever given her any—that make me want her more than any girl I’ve ever met. But what would someone as seemingly together as her ever see in a screwed up guy like me?

Four Years Later was probably one of my most anticipated reads for this year. As we know, I am a series whore. I love those pesky secondary characters that hang out in the background and make me all in love with them. For me, Owen was the definition of the pesky background character. In One Week Girlfriend he was just Fable’s little brother. Then in Second Chance Boyfriend Owen grew up a bit and started coming into his own and of course I wanted more. I wanted his story because I knew his story would be amazing. And it was.

Owen is in college, playing football just like Drew, but his grades are slipping and he’s benched. He needs to get his act together or his football career will be over before it even starts. In walks his new tutor, Chelsea.

Chelsea is smart. Like really smart. And she lives by her schedule. She has her classes, her tutoring, and her job at the diner. She’s a bit shy and awkward, especially around guys, and really never has fun. She is also very innocent. She is years ahead of others her age and had mostly focused on her studies than boys. Then in walks Owen with his bad boy attitude and all her nice thoughts turn into some really dirty thoughts. She’s my kind of girl.

Oh, Owen. I just knew he was going to trouble. In the good way. He’s to damn sexy and charming for his own good. He is also can be really sweet especially with Chelsea. She is the opposite of all the girls he’s gone for and he tries to stay away. But when he finally gives in he knows how to treat her right. He’s not without faults though and that’s kind of what I really like about him. He’s not a cookie cutter hero. He smokes pot, he drinks, and he has a bad habit of cursing… a lot.

I adore Monica Murphy’s writing. She took me took me on an emotional journey that had the butterflies going crazy in my stomach. I couldn’t help but root for Owen and Chelsea. They had a lot to overcome, not just as a couple but as individuals. Owen and Chelsea are a perfect fit. They really balance each other out. She brings out the serious in him, especially with school and his bad habits, and he gets her to loosen up and actually enjoy things. It’s like two puzzle pieces fitting together. They are stronger together.

Would it be too much to ask for maybe a novella with them in the future?
