Publisher's Summary

Straightlaced freshman Zooey Cartwright has arrived at UCLA determined to have a heck of a lot more fun in college than she did in high school. What's the first item on Zooey's agenda before classes start in two days? Losing her pesky V card. She's definitely not looking for a boyfriend, so where can Zooey find the right guy to do the deed and move along without a backward glance? At a party thrown by a bunch of football players, of course.

Enter Tyler Caldwell. A beast on the field and off, cocky as heck, and often wearing T-shirts with sayings like "God's Gift to Womankind", Tyler is most definitely not boyfriend material.

After a make-out session with Tyler leaves Zooey entirely unsatisfied, she is determined never to see him again. But her schedule lands her in not one but two of his classes, and it doesn't take long before Tyler is giving Zooey exactly what she wants - and a whole lot more she never bargained for.

Can Zooey surrender her body to this bad boy without giving him her heart, too?

Written in the Stars

I read this book first and loved it so much that I had to buy the audio. Lauren Rowe does an incredible job narrating (by the way, how cool is it that she narrates her own books!?!?) and I fell in love with Tyler and Zooey all over again. Even if you've read this one, I still recommend the audio because Lauren truly brings this story to life. THIS is how NA/college romance should be done! Pure perfection!!

Below is my original review of the book :)

I am literally bursting with LOVE for this book! It was like the merging of all of my favorite things into one story. From the songs/music highlighted (Harvey Danger, George Michael, to the musical Wicked), the pop culture references, and to the fantastic location at UCLA - it was pure perfection from start to finish. There were times while reading that I thought that the author was inside my head. Lauren Rowe and I are clearly twinsies.

Misadventures of a College Girl was such an awesome new adult/college sports romance. It was fun, sweet, and so sexy. Tyler may have come across initially as a cocky douchebag, but it was his vulnerability, drive, and thoughtfulness that won me over. I really enjoyed the playful banter and innuendo between him and Zooey and that she didn't let his charm turn her into a swooning fangirl - well, at least not all the time. ;) Their meet cute may have leaned more to the lust driven side than cute, but what ended up developing between them was organic and natural. I loved that there wasn't any unnecessary drama and that the story focused on Tyler and Zooey. The obstacles they face are realistic and honest. I respected both characters immensely for not letting their dreams fall by the wayside and for being true to themselves.

This modern day Romeo and Juliet story will have you laughing and swooning. I could not have had a bigger smile on my face and a happier heart when I finished. Can't recommend this book enough!

ps - ABSOLUTELY LOVED the author's note at the end! #BruinsForever
A Trojan is only good once, but a Bruin is FOREVER!!

Lauren is a great author and a wonderful voice actor too!

I really enjoy Laurens books. In fact I like them so much I also enjoy listening to them too. She does s great job on both actions! This story has great pacing with humor and commitment to each characters perspective. I finish her books with a smile on my face and cannot wait until I can read the next one. I hope she writes and reads the next one quickly!

Amazing

I love Lauren’s stories. It’s got the perfect balance of sweetness and raunch. It’s also got a compellingly strong and quirky female lead and a swoon-worthy male lead. It doesn’t fall into stereotypes. And as typical Lauren style, she has heartbreaking, but realistic obstacles for them to overcome. I love it. So good. I wish I had more time with Zooey and Tyler.

My fav Lauren Rowe book so far!

It’s official. I have a new favorite Lauren Rowe book.


After reading a few mediocre books, it’s always nice to read one that hits it out of the park. I sometimes tend to blame myself if I get into a reading slump and am not enjoying recently read books. But then… a book like this comes along and reminds me that, yes, I can fall in love with a book again.

I guess it’s kind of like going on a bunch of spark-less dates, then suddenly going on a date with someone with immediate fireworks.

This book was that date.

Like every book I’ve read by LR, I was all in with Tyler and Zooey. I bought their relationship from the start.

LR is quite possibly the best of any romance author I’ve read (and I’ve read a lot) at developing relationships. She has pulled off insta-love (quite a feat), slow burn, and even romance between two people that never met.

Like I mentioned earlier, this was my favorite of all her books that I’ve read so far. I didn’t think any could top Ball Peen Hammer, but my God she did it.

I have to say, this isn’t a book that I’d normally be drawn to, however in a recent livestream chat, she gushed over this book and how it’s the virgin trope that people who don’t like virgin tropes will love… and I happen to be one of those people… and I loved it.

In LR I trust.

Multi Talented~

Would you listen to Misadventures of a College Girl again? Why?

After reading Lauren Rowe's Club series I fell deeply in stalker mode. Creepy but true.
Her sense of humor and ability to write some of the most sexy, intriguing characters total ensnared me. Yet, even with all the layers adding up to perfection, it wouldn't be worth reading without a story line to captivate you heart, mind and libido.
Lauren Rowe has given us all that and more. Now I find out she is an awesome narrator. Who would have thought?

I downloaded this book to listen to while driving and cleaning my house. Oh yeah! Once again she has hit it out of the park, over the rainbow etc....

Tyler is an amazing young man, full of life, adventure, and already has his life mapped out to perfection. Zoe is similar to Tyler but her life is mapped out in a different direction. Tyler is using football as a stepping stone to his ultimate goal where Zoe's goal is to perform. They both excel at their dreams but Zoe has one thing she wishes to do while at college and Tyler is just the man to help her accomplish that. Together these two are perfection.

The narration of this story but none other than the author was a huge surprise to me. She can not only tell a story in it's written form but has a way with expressing them in her narrative that none other would be able to match.

What did you like best about this story?


I highly recommend reading or listening to any and all of her books. I absolutely LOVED it!
I can't note a specific part of the story that had me falling over myself because it was awesome from start to finish.
