One small town boy, one girl who wants more, one roll in the hay...
Hooking up with your high school crush is a bad idea, a really bad idea. It was only supposed to be one night, one brief departure from my real life, but nothing ever works out exactly the way you plan.
Colton Waters was everything from my past that didn't fit into my present, so why did he have to show up at my college and pledge the one frat I couldn't avoid?
Because nothing is ever meant to happen just once. At least not the life changing things that mean the difference between falling apart and falling in love.
The Hazards of a One Night Stand was a sexy, flirty new adult romance and I enjoyed every minute of it. It’s part of Alyssa Rose Ivy’s Hazards series, but you wouldn’t have to read The Hazards of Skinny Dipping to enjoy this one. Of course, I think you should read both, anyhow, because they’re enjoyable in their own way.
In this book, older gal Mallory hooks up with her younger neighbor Colt one night. He wants more, she likes him and enjoyed the sex, but worries just a little more than necessary about what everyone else would think about her dating a freshman. I liked Mallory, but I still found myself wanting to smack some sense into her. Again with this novel, I had a difficult time connecting completely with the main character because of the sorority mindset, but it didn’t really hinder my enjoyment of the book. Colt was amazing. He more than made up for any of Mallory’s shortcomings from my perspective. He was a sweet, genuinely good guy who cared about her and she kept pushing him away. Silly girl. You find one like that, you hold on tight. It’s not that big of an age difference.
This was just a fun read all around. It wasn’t angsty and while there was drama, it wasn’t overdone. The main character was a bit frustrating, but the love interest was damn near perfect. They had a ton of chemistry and the book was both steamy and sweet. Though it was a little over 300 pages, I still devoured it in a couple of hours. It was also nice to get another glimpse into what’s going on with Juliet and Reed (<3<3) after The Hazards of Skinny Dipping.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
