    OMG. OMG, OMG, OMG - could this have BEEN more perfect?

    (The answer is, no, it could not)

    This landed in my inbox today. It immediately went onto my Nook and then I dove in because I simply had to know what would happen after the delicious cliffhanger at the end of book 2.

    The course of true love never runs smoothly, obviously, so for half of the book, there's moping and pining and longing and not realizing that what is right in front of you... and the great, big, huge misunderstanding, because Asher sometimes opens his mouth without thinking through what he's going to say, and out comes word vomit that is then overheard and causes heartache.

    Ah, young love, when it's super difficult to just talk about feelings with honesty and openness, and pining and longing are so much better than pulling your head out of your rear end, yeah? I felt being transported back into my own youth, when similar issues loomed and were hard to discuss, because a) we didn't have the words, or b) we didn't really know our own feelings, or c) we didn't know how to bring something up. Who of us hasn't?

    I laughed. A lot. Not so much at Asher's pain, but at what he does. How he responds to people writing into his column while he's pining and moping and heartbroken. "Get bent" is probably not quite the right answer to someone who writes in for advice on their love life.

    But then... Asher finally has all the scales falling from his eyes (okay, he has help, a lot of help, but OMG, did he need it), and then Operation "Get Him Back" begins in earnest. Also, if he can combine another match-making endeavor into the Operation, all the better, amirite?

    In the end, Asher gets his King In Wonderland, of course, because this is a love story, after all, but it was delightful to accompany him on his journey to true love, with all the little side trips, roadblocks, and obstacles. And the heartache and the realizations and the 'holy shit, I'm an idiot". And the big gesture and all the small things that he does because he sees not a King, but Morgan.

    I simply adored Asher, loved Morgan, grunts and all, loved Randy and Red, especially Randy's snark, and felt sorry (a small wee bit) for Christopher. I thoroughly enjoyed the letters being sent in for Asher's column, including his responses, even though one of them made me tear up, because I knew who'd written it, even if Asher did not. And every single situation, every scene, was engaging, whether it was happy or sad. These books were written with love and heart, and it totally shows.

    The author did a superb job creating these interesting, multi-faceted characters, giving them distinct personalities, making them vulnerable, making them lovable, and making them real. What a fantastic, engaging trilogy. Loved, loved, loved. LOVED! (in case you couldn't tell thus far)

    I'd like to get a glimpse of these characters a few years down the road, when Morgan has graduated, Asher is in his final year, Randy and Red are doing whatever they're doing, Tim having found love, Christopher... nah, don't really care so much about him. His character is a catalyst, yes, but he too only saw a King for a King, and not Morgan. I'd like to know how Morgan deals with his father's expectations now that the cat is out of the bag, and how they deal with the inevitable fallout. I realize of course that this didn't fit into this story, and perhaps I'm meant to simply imagine how they'll fare going forward. I think I'm good with that too.

    These books must be read in order. And read them, you must. Wait until book 3 is out (7/2/19) and then buy and read all three of them together. Chances are you'll swoon and melt into a puddle like I did.

    That was the perfect conclusion to the

    trilogy. In this last fairy tale, Asher himself is the protagonist who’s going after his own prince, getting his very own HEA.

    This installment is also a little bit different than the other two. Asher’s prince is not the one he was expecting to be. Everything he believed is coming crushing down and, of course, he can’t keep his mouth shut.

    . For the first time, and no matter what he does, he can’t fix things. He can’t make his prince forgive him. He has even lost his matchmaking mojo. He’ll need a grand gesture.

    In the end, everything comes together so beautifully. Bits and pieces of known fairy tales fall in place to create Asher’s unique happy ending and it was all kinds of magical. And hot too.

    This whole series felt like a big come back from Nash Summers. I really hope we read more from her soon!

    Recommended for all MM readers.

    In this series you kind of get a play on,

    Red riding Hood,

    Goldilocks and the three bears(or two bears in this case)

    And here it's,

    Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella....

    Charming and clever.

    In the final instalment of this delightful series things should be going well for Asher.He's just celebrated his birthday in the absolute best way but an overheard conversation sees his happiness short lived.

    He's lost his mojo with his advice column.

    But Asher can't stay downbeat for long and he has a new mission.....make the boy of his dreams see how much he cares.And it's just charming as he puts his plan in motion.Helped by a new love problem to solve and a fairy with a glittery wand( that Asher totally wants,by the way!), it seems true love will always find a way....

    I know I've totally gushed about how cute Asher is in previous reviews for this series but he just is!! I absolutely loved him.He's all kinds of wonderful.

    Fantastic characters,a charming story that you'll get swept up in.I didn't want it to end.

    Books 1 and 2 currently available on KU.

    Highly Recommended...

    I liked this one just as much as the others, but I missed the big boom at the end. Don't get me wrong, there was a grand gesture, but it was not so grand to me.

    Asher is mostly oblivious about what's going on around him, but the readers know most things. There are little clues, you don't even have to pay attention and you'll see what Asher didn't. That's what makes it silly and cute.

    When I read the first book, I thought this would be a 'jock-in-the-closet' type of book, every clue pointed in

    When I read the first book, I thought this would be a 'jock-in-the-closet' type of book, every clue pointed in that direction. But it wasn't. In fact the author took the whole 'coming out' thing very lightly, meaning.... no one had to come out in an angsty 'omg-what-would-people-say' kind of way. If a character was gay, or lesbian or in a poly relationship, it seemed to be completely natural. And it was refreshing.

    It's a silly, fluffy, romantic and not so steamy series. :) The 'aww' effect is guaranteed.

    These books are fun to read. Although, I wish this had more Asher and Morgan it, I am glad with its outcome.

    Sometimes when you're busy fixing other peoples love problems you tend to neglect your own. This is what happens with Asher . It takes a best friend and his dad to make him see what he has been missing.

    Overall, I enjoyed it very much.

    Why couldn't these boys just sit down and talk already? Asher needed to not just apologize but explain, and Morgan needed to stop running away and sulking.

    Had the MCs been any older than college age, I would have been very unhappy with the lack of communication. But they're young, so I forgive them.

    There's just one short and sweet steamy scene, but I don't expect more from this author.

    I wouldn't be opposed to

    I wouldn't be opposed to Christopher getting his own story. Just sayin'.

    Even though this series is as light as a feather, there are plenty of feels, and I couldn't help rooting for Archer, even though I would have rolled my eyes at his antics and naivety under different circumstances.

    If you like YA, fun student romance and a good story told with a wink and a smile, this is definitely for you!

    Now this one disappointed me. The other two installments were so light and fun and cute that I expected this one to be as well. But it had my least favorite trope, the miscommunication thing.

    Asher made a stupid comment which Morgan overheard and then it suddenly was this big thing that blew up way out of proportion.

    It is mentioned Asher tried to apologize for more than a month, but what I didn’t get was that he never tried to explain that Morgan misinterpreted what Asher had said about him. They

    It is mentioned Asher tried to apologize for more than a month, but what I didn’t get was that he never tried to explain that Morgan misinterpreted what Asher had said about him. They were roommates, so even if Morgan tried to avoid Asher, they did in fact occasionally see each other, so why didn’t Asher tackle Morgan, sat on him, and then explained?

    It felt like drama for drama’s sake.

    Just like I never got why Morgan thought himself the villain. There was no reason for that and it just didn’t make sense.

    I also couldn’t figure out why Morgan disliked Christopher so much. It wasn’t like Christopher did anything to Morgan. That was strange.

    So a disappointing final installment of this 3 part story. It wasn’t bad, but definitely not as light and fluffy as the other 2 books. Drama just to spice up a story is never going to be okay with me.

    This whole series is adorably cute. So sweet, and I'm a sucker for slow burn romances, so!

    I was immediately hit in the feels when I started this book and felt heartbroken alongside Asher and I ploughed through the story needing to get to his HEA, which he got (I doubt that's a spoiler) and it was

    .

    If anything, the story was over just too quickly.

    I really loved Asher and his OTT ways. I'll miss him.

    I can't wait for what Nash Summers has in store for us next. <3
