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.
“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?

Ahhhh here we go everyone I can’t believe it is already week 5 of this season! Crack is so addicting and it is sad to realize we are about to be left dry for a little bit! NOOOOO Kandi keep on writing so I don’t have to wait, I’m a very impatient person.
So with saying that I won’t make you wait any longer for my review! Here we go with episode 5! Who is ready for a little action while we all get ready for the Semi-formal? We know how our friends at PSU love to go all out for parties…
We start out this episode with Jess and Cassie comparing the fact that they are both taking fraternity president’s to the semi-formal and a little girl gossip. In true Jess form she always puts things very bluntly “I hate when they don’t know what they’re doing down there. It’s like, why even make the effort if you’re just going to slobber and make a mess without getting me off?” Can I just say how much I love listening to Jess’ sassiness.
So I have to admit I have a soft spot for Ashlei and I feel like she needs one huge bear hug to make it through all the crap she goes through during this season. I did enjoy reading her telling off Hayden because let’s be honest he is no good. “Eat a wiener, Hayden!” On another note can I just that Ashlei can’t catch a break this season it is one thing after another… Kandi you are going to either cause a heart attack or premature gray hair.
While some people may enjoy the flirting banter and flings that are happening at PSU I am not one of them. 22% made me want to shake the characters and tell them to get their head on straight. I’ll be honest I am the type of person if I don’t like the pairing I won’t read the sex scene.. And don’t shoot me Kandi but I just couldn’t read them together, it felts all kind of wrong to my emotions!
WOOT WOOT it is time for the Semi-formal… Any predictions on what is going to go down? I sat on pins and needles trying to figure out what big things were going to go down between everyone with everyone hiding secrets from one another.
Who hooked up with who? *gasp*
I can’t believe that happened *bug eyes*
Skyler did what for who? *hand heart*
Adam got mad at who? *Shakes my head*
I can’t spoil on the juicy gossip because I want you all to read this episode!! So I’ll leave you with a snippet from the last chapter of the book “What’s with all the f**king secrets around here?!” That is the question on my mind too J-Love and maybe just maybe Kandi will answer some of questions the season finale next week. Until then PSU lovers party on and don’t do anything the KKB girls wouldn’t do.
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.
