Synopsis: Written like your favorite drama television show, the Palm South University series has been called "a mix of Greek meets Gossip Girl with a dash of Friends." Follow seven college students as they maneuver unrequited love, teacher/student romance, the tangles of “no strings” relationships, love triangles and more. Each “season” has six “episodes,” and just like when your favorite show hits Netflix, you can read just one episode at a time or binge the entire thing. With the perfect mix of angst, emotional romance, and romantic comedy, the Palm South University series is your next guilty addiction.
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.

This series were my first ever books by Kandi Steiner and I've heard a lot of amazing things about her specially her angsty goodness (I'll get to those soon), but I had no idea what I was in for with this series. I've binged the series for the past couple of days in order to read Legacy, but when I first started reading I found out about another book that is part of the series that I didn't know existed, so I read both books at the same time just like Kandi suggested and oh man it was double the frustration.

“Can I still kiss you?” I whisper after a moment. Adam shakes his head, fingers gripping my hair a little tighter. “You never have to ask. Kiss me anytime you want, Red.” I laugh, shoving my hands into his chest to push him away but he wraps his arms around me, pulling me in tighter, and then without warning, his lips cover mine.

I admit when I started the first book I was expecting something more but as I got to know all the characters and seeing them going through so much, making mistakes, growing as individuals... basically with each book I fell a little more for this crazy yet amazing family.

At the end of it all, when Cassie McBee looks back on her life, she will never forget the moments of us. She’ll remember every word, every touch, every kiss —and in those moments, she’ll find no pain —only the brightest joy. That’s the promise I vow to keep.

Legacy was, I believe, the best one yet! There was just so much going on, and it definitely was the one who messed with my emotions the most. I was so frustrated and scared and pissed. It was a whole jumble of emotions. Every single character has been through so much... watching some fall apart, change for better and worse, watch some of them strive and be boss a** bit****, it was like watching my kids grow up(*whispers* I don't have any lol but you get what I'm saying). I was both proud and angry at their attitudes.

“Don’t you understand?” he asks, cutting me off as he walks purposefully toward me. “I have to do that, treat you like you’re just another employee. It’s the only thing I can control. That office,” he says, pointing one hand back toward shore, “is the only goddamn place where I have any semblance of power over you.” He takes a larger step, and then another, until he’s only a few feet away. “In every other place,” he says, chest heaving. “In every other time —you consume me. You own me.

I would like to vent about all the things I felt about each character but ain't nobody wanting spoilers. I'll just say that it was a complete roller-coaster and everything definitely came full circle. So many new relationships, so many emotions. Friendships were tested. Old relationships fell apart, new ones were born and thrived. Anything you can think of, it happened in this book. It was crazy, crazy frustrating but crazy good. I was mess reading these books but I did not for one second want to put the book down, I just wanted to know what was gonna happen next. You'll know when things are about to implode. But I honestly just wanted everyone to be honest and things to be out in the open. All the secrets and games needed to stop, and I'm glad that in the end everyone did what was right after all the things they put each other through.

“Every dream I thought I had means nothing to me now if you’re not a part of them, too. I’ve never opened myself up to love, I’ve never let anything get in the way of my career. But you came in and turned all that into nothing. You obliterated everything I thought was important. All that matters to me, Skyler, is you.”

I cannot wait to see what's in store for the Kappa Kappa Beta girls and their boys. I am so beyond happy that my ultimate ship is sailing. Adam has been my favorite since the first book, even though he was dumb in book 1 and 2. But he has such a good heart and he was the best in this book, even when his actions were questionable. And Cassie she too is my favorite and I am so glad to see her grow and be confident after what she's been through. It was glorious. They had their ups and downs no doubt but their 'ending' was PERFECT! I am so excited to see Erin work through all that she has been through. The girl was insane in this book but I want her to find happiness, she deserves it. And Jess, I miss Jarrett too but he was an a**hole so I hope my girl really gets back on her feet and gives another sexy man a chance.

If you love college romances then this is definitely one you do not want to skip. 
Drama, Sex, Parties, Friendships for life... all that and more! These characters will have you on your toes wanting to know what they will do next. 

Palm South University is a guilty pleasure you do not want to miss out on! You get a lot of different tropes and definitely all the emotions. This bunch will having you laughing and crying and feeling everything. Reading this series was like watching the greatest reality tv show of the typical American college life! I couldn't get enough and I hope I get so much more! And if these books ever come to life on screen you better believe I want miss a second of it.

About the Author:
Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She 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 diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t 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 live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
