Review + Giveaway: The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Publication Date:  May 21st 2013
Genre(s): New Adult

Rating: ★★★★★
Order at: Amazon | Barnes Noble

 This isn't a deep book about first loves or self-discovery.

If you want a book like that, I'd be happy to recommend one, but I don't have that kind of story to tell. Instead my story is about rash decisions and finding out that your dream guy is bad in bed.

It's the story of when I finally went skinny dipping, and how my life was never the same again.

Oh, and it's also the story of my freshman year of college and realizing Mr. Right might have been there all along.

One word: Hilarious >.< Seriously this book is really fun and entertaining. I finished it in one sitting and now I want to reread it again. It's really fast paced that you will breeze through in no time. Like the synopsis said this is not a first love story or self discovery so don't take it too serious, just sit back and enjoy the story. It's a light read and a perfect book for summer. Reading this book made me kind of miss college even though I am sure mine was not that fun. And it was not like we were having party every week or all that frat house thingies. Maybe it was, I didn't know since I didn't live in the dorm and the midterm and final weeks were hell that I'm sure of.

I really enjoyed the characters and their development. It just felt so real and their conversation made me laugh out loud so many times. And I was glad that I did not read this book in public or they would think I was crazy because I couldn't stop laughing and grinning. The love came naturally and I knew what Juliet meant when she said "it just feels right." Yup when the right one comes along, you will know it because of the FEEL, like the puzzle is solved.

So if you guys are on the hunt for a fun, quirky, adorable read then do not look any further =)
