Publication Date – September 22, 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.
EEEK! I feel like Kandi Steiner has hit her groove with the Palm South University crew in this fifth installment. She’s found her way with the second half of the first season and I’m really becoming more engrossed. This episode centers around Ashlei, Adam, Bear, and Jess. In the first couple episodes, I was a little upset that we heard from so many characters, but in these later installments, it’s actually working for Steiner. The characters are mingling more so it just feels like you’re getting different points of views rather than whole new situations.
“Your family may be fucked up, but what you don’t realize is that you’re my family now, too. And families help each other – always.”
I really love that Episode Five felt full of action. There was so much going on, yet centered around events we’ve been introduced to before so it wasn’t chaotic or confusing. I am a little worried as to how it will all be resolved with only one episode left in the season, but I have faith that Kandi Steiner will not disappoint. Palm South University is a sizzling, fun serial and it’s definitely getting hotter. This author sure knows how to give her readers what they want so I look forward to see just how big of a bang Season One will end in.

“Are you okay?”
“Peachy,” I remark, snatching my board from the ground. The quick motion of bending over and standing upright again sends me spinning and Jarrett’s hands find my waist to steady me again. “My phone on the other hand, not so much.”
At that, Jarrett’s lips twitch into a devilish smirk. “It was a necessary casualty.”
My heartbeat quickens and my mouth feels like I swallowed cotton. I know Jarrett can sense it. He feels my nerves. He can feel me trembling. I know, because he’s smirking wider now, his dark eyes hooded in a mixture of lust and amusement. When he bites his lower lip and drags his teeth along the tender flesh, my eyes flutter closed before I realize what I’m doing.
“I can buy you a replacement, if you’d like,” he adds, but he says it huskily and I know it’s on purpose. “We could go to the mobile store on campus after class Wednesday.”
“It’s fine,” I say, snapping out of my trance. “It’s already being fixed.” Why is my voice shaking? Why am I staring at him like he’s stark ass naked instead of fully clothed in a tight gray t-shirt and basketball shorts? Wait… he’s wearing basketball shorts? My eyes fall lower and I can clearly see the outline of him straining beneath them.
Oh, for fuck’s sake.
Really? Like really?
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.
