RELEASSE BLITZ & REVIEW: Dropout by Jamie Schlosser















JIMMY
Over the past year, I’ve been called a lot of things. Slacker. Troublemaker. Party animal.
I thought I was on top of the world. Turns out, I was pretty close to rock bottom.
Now I have a new title: college dropout.
Talk about a reality check.
But I’ve got a chance to redeem myself. One summer to turn things around. Two months to prove I’m not a complete f*ck-up.
It’s time to change.
I want to get back to being one of the good guys.

MACKENNA
I have everything I need to live out my dream of being a reclusive songwriter—my guitar, my notebook, and blissful silence.
At least, I did until Jimmy moved in next door.
With tattoos, piercings, and mischievous green eyes, he’s got bad news written all over him. And last time I got with a bad boy, it ended horribly.
Jimmy makes me feel things I shouldn’t feel. Want things I shouldn’t want. He’s a hazard to my carefully laid plans.
But he’s only here for two months.
I can resist him...right?



*Although DROPOUT is part of a series, it can be enjoyed as a standalone.*




Jimmy Buffet’s ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’ blared through the house, and I followed the music to the kitchen. I wasn’t sure what I would find, but as long as it wasn’t my neighbor making out with her neighbor I was good.
Turning the corner, I stopped dead in my tracks at the sight in front of me.
It wasn’t Beverly. Or Ernie.
And I most definitely wasn’t good.
A guy wearing nothing but camo-print underwear and a peach-colored apron stood in front of the stove. He was facing away from me, and I caught sight of a large tattoo—angel wings—across the expanse of his muscular back.
Surprised, I let out a high-pitched squeak. The sound got the stranger’s attention and he started to pivot in my direction.
My eyes fell to his sculpted ass, the muscles flexing as he shifted his weight from one foot to the other. He wore briefs. Not boxers or boxer-briefs—actual tighties. No guy should look good in those, but damn, he did.
His black hair was shorter on the sides and longer on top. Some of the inky strands fell over his forehead, falling to just above his bright green eyes.
His lips were parted in surprise, and something flipped in my stomach at the sight of his mouth. The bottom lip was twice the size of the top. Plump. Pouty.
Dark tattoos painted his chest and he had colorful flowers down the length of his left arm. And…
Is that a nipple piercing?
Because of the apron, I couldn’t see his abs, but my guess was that he had a solid six-pack under there.
I opened my mouth to say something—anything.
I wanted to ask him what he was doing in Beverly’s house. Or apologize for walking in on him while he was naked.
Instead, my social awkwardness presented itself full-force with the words that tumbled out of my mouth next.
“If you tried to hide in the woods, at least no one would be able to see your ass.”
His emerald eyes widened. “What?”
Figuring he probably didn’t hear me the first time because of the loud music, I raised my voice. “Camouflage underwear. Your butt would totally blend in with the bushes.”
Looking like he was caught between laughing and being outraged, he opened his mouth to respond.
Then all hell broke loose.

Dropout was fantastic. This is the third book in the good guys series by Jamie Schlosser.

After too much partying, fighting and bad grades jimmie is fast on his way to becoming a college dropout. He is sent to live with his grandmother for the summer to straighten himself out and redeem himself in his parents eyes, which is where he meets and falls for her next door neighbor mackenna.

She's a songwriter with a difficult past she's trying to escape and move on with her life. Mackenna is a recluse who prefers her own company than that of others after having everyone turn on her after the incident when she was a teenager.

After trying everything to make him go away and failing miserably, mackenna decides to let Jimmy in for a summer fling as long as he follows the rules she sets out. Somewhere along the way the rules get forgotten, and things between the two become real.

Jimmy is a real smooth talker with a heart of gold and the bad boy looks to make a girl crazy.
Mackenna is a sweetheart who is full of ambition, such a strong woman even after all life has thrown her way.
Together they make an amazing couple.
The secondary characters in this are great, especially grandma with her sassy attitude and foul language she had me laughing so hard.
Great story overall definitely a must read. Can't wait for what is next in this series.
