One broken heart, one drink too many, one steamy night in the sand...

No one warns you about the dangers of drinking with a broken heart. At least no one warned me. I never imagined I'd fall for a musician, especially not one like Chase, but then again I never expected to have my heart broken into a million pieces by the frat guy I thought was the love of my life. 

Sometimes it's the rash decisions, like hooking up in the sand, that lead you to the best places—the kinds of places where it's possible to let yourself fall in love again 

*New Adult Romance*

NA Review My Thoughts

I have said it before, and I will say it again…I love Alyssa Rose Ivy. She is one of those authors that I know is so consistently good, that I can pick up any of her books and I will enjoy them. I love her hazards series, and this third book, The Hazards of Sex on the Beach is no different. It is fun, romantic, and an all around great read. I love that the series follows a group of friends. The Hazards of Sex on the Beach is Cara’s story.

The book starts out much like all the books in the Hazards series do, with the very act that the title says. There is something comforting in that. I pick up the book, knowing how it will start and then I get to enjoy the ride from there. Cara just  broke up with her jerk of an ex boyfriend after she found out that she was cheating on her basically during their whole relationship. Can you believe that? She is at a party and she meets Chase, and after a few drinks they end up on the beach. We late find out that this night was pretty uncharacteristic of both of them. Cara basically runs away after without giving her number or last name.

I loved when she ran into Chase a few weeks later at a show. It was so cute how he wouldn’t even let her out of his sight because he was scared she was going to run again. And it was there that there romance really started. I loved Cara and Chase. Chase is such an awesome guy. And while Cara obviously has some very fresh trust issues, she really does try her best. Chase is off on tour, and honestly I think it was perfect for Cara because she got a chance to explore some new things at college. I liked watching Cara hang out with new people and get involved in new things almost as much as I loved the romance between her and Chase. I loved what Cara ended up doing! I thought it was such a cool idea. And their time apart really allowed them to talk and videochat and get to know each other well.

Each of the books in the Hazard series are sexy fun with a rockin’ romance. All of the guys are swoonworthy, and we get to check in on the past couples as well. Each book can be read as a standalone but I love Juliet and Reed, and Mallory and Colton so much that I would suggest reading them all. The girls are all sorority sisters and they are all such great friends. I can’t wait to see who the next book is about. My vote is for it to be about Jane. She is just a sweetheart.

    Okay you have convinced me to push this up my TBR pile! I love all her other books so it is only natural that I would like this one as well.

    This sounds like the perfect summer series! I haven’t read a book by Alyssa yet but I hear such good things about her books! I also love series that gives us a new characters in each installment – like the Miranda Kenneally novels. Great review, Michelle!

      I really like Alyssa’s contemporary romances. This series is a lot of fun. It’s cool seeing a group of friends in a college setting like this one.

      Thanks for stopping by Giselle! 🙂
