Recommended with reservations:

 

1. Easy by Tammara Webber

2. Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine

 

 

Fair to Middling:

 

3. Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

4. One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy (not horrible, but it's only 1/2 of a book)

Unremittingly vile:

6. Rule by Jay Crownover

7. The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
