Author – Kandi Steiner
Publication Date – September 1, 2015
Series – Palm South University Season One
Drama. Lies. Sex.
Welcome to Palm South University.
The weather isn’t the only thing heating up in South Florida. At a school where fraternities and sororities don’t exactly play by the rules, relationships are bound to be tested. Parties and sex are definitely key ingredients in the Palm South recipe, but what happens when family issues, secret lives, and unrequited love get tossed in the mix?
Follow Cassie, Bear, Jess, Skyler, Erin, Ashlei, and Adam as they tackle college at a small, private beach town university. Written in television drama form, each episode of this serial will pull you deeper and deeper into the world of PSU.
Where the sun is hot and the clothes are scarce, anything can happen.
Much like the first episode, this is a quick read that will suck you deeper into this group of friends attending Palm South University. While the first episode felt like Cassie’s story because of the way the characters were introduced, Episode Two had a much different overall tone. It seemed to be a lot more inclusive of the group as a whole, which I really appreciated.
“I had so many scenarios imaged already. The shower, the bed, a public dressing room, his kitchen…Sighing, I take one last pull of the wine before passing it to Skyler. Oh well, no use dwelling on it now. He’s off limits. Right?”
I enjoyed this second installment more than the first so I’m curious and intrigued to see how the rest of the serial will continue. Whenever I pick up a new volume, I feel like I’m sneaking away to get in a half hour of dirty soap opera reality TV watching. Steiner’s writing is certainly addictive and tantalizing. She knows how to play to her audience for a fun read, but never giving away too much.
“There are way too many secrets floating around PSU right now, and I’m determined to start uncovering them. It’s time to hone in on my friends and reveal their truths.”
Even though there is a little bit of heavier material with some of the characters in Episode Two, it never really delves into that deeper New Adult genre, but in a good way. I don’t feel like the characters are figuring out who they are or where they want to end up. They’re living their lives and enjoying the moment, which is definitely a nice reprieve from some of the more emotional books I’ve read lately. If you’re looking for a fast-paced, light, sexy read, I’d highly suggest picking up this serial. I can’t wait for part three!

“Fuck,” she curses as I slam her back against my bedroom door. “Easy, Bear.”
I suck and bite down her neck and toss her onto my bed with ease, pulling my shirt up and over my head at the same time. “I’m not doing easy tonight, babe. You either get me hard and rough or you don’t get me at all. Your choice.”
Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
