Tousle Me is the first book in a New Adult parody series by Morgan appropriately titled, A Cliché Too Far. And it did just that at times — take the very clichés it was parodying a little too far. With all the subtlety of a sledge hammer, Tousle Me tackles the sometimes formulaic New Adult genre head-on and without much forgiveness. There were definitely instances of pure laugh-out-loud madness, but there were also plenty of otherwise crude or corny moments that might have readers cringing as well. There is no doubt that Morgan has a witty writing style, if only it had been dialed back a little.

Cammibelle Hicks is at a fraternity party with her best friends when she quite literally falls into handsome, cage-fighting, billionaire Hunter von Styles. Hunter wants Cammi and he makes no bones about his desire to have her. Cammi is aware that Hunter has demons and that he is hiding a deep dark secret. Additionally, her best friend Archer Riddick won’t give her up without a fight — or in this case, a medieval joust. When Cammi does find out the truth, will she turn her back on their budding romance or will she be able to heal her destined hero? (SELF-PUBLISHED, Dec., 193 pp., $1.99, ISBN: 9781310480195)
