Noelle Buckman is looking forward to making a fresh start in college, one that doesn’t involve immature high school boys. The second she steps on campus for freshman orientation, she can sense the possibilities. Especially when she spots Andy, a resident advisor who’s not just hot but also thoughtful enough to open doors for a girl.

And Andy has his eye on Noelle. Even when her nerves take control and she thinks she comes off as a hillbilly with no direction, Andy can see what she’s really like and he’s more than a little interested.

But orientation is less than two full days and there’s an entire summer between Noelle and Andy. Will her attempt to romance the R.A. be as short-lived as college orientation?

Although this isn’t the first book that our little group has read together, it was the first one I personally took part in. (And last to review, I think) I honestly hadn’t heard about this and was curious enough to purchase right away and dive right in. BUT. Sitting at roughly only 80 pages, I was a little disappointed with it.

In short, Noelle and her friend Julia, are at freshmen orientation for College when Noelle meets Andy, an R.A, who has an immediate attraction to Noelle. Sparks fly. And.. that’s it, really.

OK. So there is a little bit more to the story but not really. Honestly, this would have been a perfect story, had this been a prelude to a full novel showing how these two met or if it had been 200 pages longer.

It was cute and fun at first, watching these two interact with each other but it just got.. rushed and weird after about 20 pages. It wasn’t long enough to really establish a liking to each character and especially their relationship. And sorry, their little hook up made Noelle a hypocrite.

Overall- CUTE. But too damn short. If you want a quick, mindless read- Romancing the R.A. is for YOU!

    Great review! I totally agree, it was way too short and undeveloped. I also found Noelle to be hypocritical. I might have liked it better if it was longer and had more depth and character developed.
