Release Day Launch + Review: The Hazards of a One Night Stand by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Be sure to check it out! It’s only 99 pennies for the time being! Colt wrapped an arm around my waist and pulled me closer. “No. I’d rather bother you.” There was something kind of sexy about the motion, something more confident than his usual goofy flirting. His hand felt nice resting on my hip, so I let it stay. Was this really the same Colt? Since when did his touch have that kind of effect on me? “When did you get back to town?” “About two hours ago.” “You didn’t wait long to come out.” I took a big sip of the drink. It was starting to taste a lot better. “I took time for a shower.” “That was thoughtful of you.” “Planning on getting close to me tonight?” He watched me intently. “Maybe.” The flirtatious word flew out of my mouth without me realizing it. The alcohol and that smile of his was making me forget where I was. “Sorry.” “Why are you sorry?” He moved his hand, turning me and wrapping his other arm around me so my body was pressed against his. “Colton…” “Mallory…” I laughed. “What are you doing?” “What am I doing?

Release Day Launch + Review: The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Favorite Quote(s): “’Juliet?’ His eyes widened slightly. I knew what was coming next. ‘Have you found a Romeo?’” Favorite Character: Reed. He was a pretty sweet guy.

I mentioned that this novel didn’t completely enamor me—and that’s okay. It’s pretty hard for me to absolutely fall in love with every book—although this one came close. I enjoyed watching Juliet come into herself and realize that taking risks is okay. Juliet takes her first risk one night—she goes skinny dipping. And while skinny dipping, she’s joined by the boy that she had been crushing on for years. One thing leads to another, and well, we all know how that one ends. Great, right? Wrong. Turns out, dream boy is bad in bed. And so Juliet gets to college, where she’s a pledge, and we get to watch her deal with all kinds of stuff. And we meet the fantastic Reed. And […]
