Book Release & Review!! The Hazards of a One Night Stand by Alyssa Rose Ivy




The Hazards of a One Night Stand (Hazards #2) by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: February 27, 2014
Publisher: Self

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 is the second book in the Hazards Series by Alyssa Rose Ivy. If you've spent any time at all on my blog, you know I'm a HUGE Alyssa Rose Ivy fan, and here she goes bringing me another series that I want more of. I don't know how book one slipped by me, but after reading this one, I'm going to get my hands on it ASAP. While some characters intersect, each book seems to be a stand alone.

This is one of those romances where you can easily lose yourself within the story... a good escape from the real world. I don't know about you, but that's why I read to begin with. Mallory and Colton are too cute. I'm not really sure why Mallory put up so much of a fight when it came to Colton. She seemed to worry way too much about what everyone else thought. Everyone has their insecurities, I suppose. Colton was so much fun. I loved his personality. He was like a playful puppy. Only you don't have naughty thoughts about a puppy, but you sure do have some about Colton. Whew! Then there's Tanner. I didn't like him at all, but he was a decent distraction in the plot. I really wanted to kick him in the shins and other sensitive parts though. I thoroughly enjoyed Hazards of a One Night Stand. When it comes to reading Alyssa Rose Ivy's books, you really can't go wrong!

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? You’re the one telling me you might be getting close to me tonight.” His hand slid down slightly, settling below my hip. His touch felt so good.

“Your birthday passed, right? You’re nineteen now?”

He laughed that deep, throaty laugh of his. “I’m going to take it as a good sign that you’re checking to make sure I’m old enough.”

“I’m not supposed to be into younger guys.”

“I’m three months younger than you. I can’t help that my parents held me back a grade.” He leaned back against an old oak tree, pulling me along with him. The motion had me leaning into his chest.

“You’ve gotten hotter.” I couldn’t believe I’d said the words out loud. I also couldn’t believe I was thinking about Colton that way again.

He laughed once more. “So have you, although I wouldn’t have thought it was possible.”

I took another sip of my drink. “When did you get this cute?”

“Are you implying you haven’t been ready to jump me for the last five years?”

“I’ve never thought about it before tonight.” The words weren’t exactly true, but I hadn’t thought about it in a while.

“But you are thinking about it now?” He grinned, moving his hands even lower so they cradled my ass.

“Maybe.” His hands sent a thrill through me, reminding me of just how long it had been since a guy had touched me that way.

“That’s the second maybe you’ve given me. How am I supposed to make that into a yes?” He took the bottle from my hand and dropped it down on the ground next to his empty cup. The remaining liquid seeped out onto the dirt.

“I don’t know. It’s your job to figure that out.” I ran my now free hand down his chest. It was firmer and more muscular than I expected.

“My job, huh? I like the sound of that.” His lips tickled my ear. “I like the sound of anything involving you.” He took my hand and led me further into the grouping of trees. It wasn’t a dense forest or anything, but I knew he was looking for privacy. I didn’t object when he gently leaned me back into another tree.

I closed my eyes, ready to feel his lips and hands on my body. I was horrible at knowing what to do in those situations. I needed the guy to take control.

His lips brushed against mine as he rested his hand on my stomach. He slipped a few fingers underneath my shirt. “Am I earning a yes, or do I have more work to do?” he whispered with his lips right next to mine.

“You have more work.” I kept my eyes closed, taking in a breath as his hand moved further up my shirt.

    1. Oh, and the one hazard thing? Opening yourself up to another person, knowing that by doing so you're risking getting hurt.

  2. The love being one-sided is a big hazard.
