    One thought on “The Hazards of Skinny Dipping”

    1. First of all, skinny dipping in your own backyard pool when no one’s even around? Pfft, LAME! And second, what the actual hell did I just read? You know how being thrown into cold water right at the beginning can work pretty well for a story? That’s not the case here. So, the MC is skinny dipping in her own pool, right? Nothing’s wrong with that. (Except that it's lame but I already mentioned that.) And all of a sudden there’s a naked man getting into the pool with her. She says she know [...]

    2. I didn’t love nor hate this book. It didn’t have something special and Juliet wasn’t always easy to like. Juliet is a sweet and loving woman. She becomes a different woman at college. She will get some new friends and she becomes more outgoing. I didn’t understand her relationship with Dylan. It was obvious to me that he wanted only one thing from her and there wasn’t real love between them. Juliet stayed with Dylan longer than I expected. She always belonged to Reed, because he was go [...]

    3. Surprise. Surprise. Surprise. I loved it. This is a brilliant NA, it has a very original story, it's funny and very romantic. If NA/YA is your genre, this is a must read.

    4. Fun, fresh, cute read! The Hazards of Skinny Dipping had my attention right from the prologue! Or maybe it was the cover…Juliet is about to start her first year of college. She isn’t naïve or a prude, but she also isn’t a big party girl either. To make sure she doesn’t “totally drown,” her cousin Amy makes her a list of five things she must do before school starts.”…but this story isn’t about the first four. It’s about what happened when I did number five.”While completely [...]

    5. Okay I've had enough, I can't do this anymore. This is just plain horrible.This book is every feminist's worst nightmare. I mean, WHAT DA HELL? There isn't even one decent character in this book. All of the guys are portrayed as perverted assholes who only want to get in Juliet's pants, while the girls are mostly for flaunting and are used as sex object. Juliet's been terribly discriminated, and what does she do? She just stands passively doing nothing.Again, WHAT. DA. HELL? What's sad is that, [...]

    6. The Hazards of Skinny Dipping is a fun, sweet, and surprising story of what happens when a girl decides to let go and gets what she's always wanted or so she thought.I've had high hopes for Hazards from the moment I first saw it. That cover is a total win. I'm also a fan of Alyssa Rose Ivy's books, so I expected to like this one as well. What I will first say is that this story surprised me, and I can't pinpoint exactly why. There is a decidedly different tone to Ivy's writing this time around, [...]

    7. This was a total waste of my time and space on my Kindle.I mean seriously! The first 60% of this book didn't need to be written. I would have been happy with a flash backwait no not even then. This is just crap.My main issue with this book, aside from the fact that this book is so loaded down with shit you need a plunger to finish it, is that its written HORRIBLY! I could get past some sucky story points, but geez try writing a book. This book is a prime example of Show vs. Tell. This book is al [...]

    8. The Hazards of Skinny Dipping is available now! Juliet's story is filled with both romance and humor, and I hope you have as much fun reading it as I had writing it. :)

    9. When a book taunt you like some sort of challenge, telling you that it’s different or the book is about something like this, or like that. I take the bait. So when I saw the blurb of this book and it says that it’s not ‘a deep book about first loves or self-discovery.’ I took the challenge I wanted this book to prove it to me that it isn’t cut out like the rest. That if I want what it says I’ll get it. I will get the honesty.Turned out, it did. The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa [...]

    10. It was pretty lame and cliche but I'm a sucker for it and was totally into it. I thought it was really cute, I just wish there'd been more Dylan drama.

    11. ***ARC received by author for review purposes***Another great book by Alyssa Rose Ivy! As soon as I saw the cover for this book, I knew I wanted it because a) It's by Alyssa Rose Ivy!, b) look at that gorgeous cover, and c) seriously, did you see that cover?! I didn't even know what it was about and I really didn't care, I just knew I was going to read it as soon as I could get my hands on it. Once I stopped drooling over the cover to actually read the summary, I just wanted it even more. Don't [...]

    12. My Thoughts: I don’t know, when I saw this one on , I knew it was a must read. I felt like it would be great! We are introduced to Juliet who is starting college soon. Right before college, she goes skinny dipping, in her own swimming pool. Sounds interesting, right? Well a neighbor guy she’s known forever decides to join her. She’s always had a crush on him, so you think it would be magical, right? They have sex. It wasn’t magical, yet he seems to think it was. In his mind, now she’s [...]

    13. I had so much fun reading this book Dylan was okay but as I got to reading the story I kind of out grew him, not to mention he acts like a girl half the time, "I woke up in the middle of the night wanting you so bad, and you weren't there. Not even a note with your phone number. Your house was empty the next day. And are you are the only person on the planet without a facebook? I couldn't even find you that way." Reed now that hunka-hunka-burning-love was something else entirely and I really did [...]

    14. That it’s too aware of the times is my biggest problem with this one. How can I not feel thus with mentions of it not being a YA story despite it’s YA introduction (The Hazards of Skinny Dipping, right?) nor its funnier moments of a guy wanting to be the dom and the girl not wanting to be dominated. It’s aware of what’s popular and what’s out there. My feelings for this are the same when considering all those other books that poke fun at sparkly vampires and loves that consume. The sto [...]

    15. I received a review copy in exchange for my honest opinion. as of now, this is not my full review, that will come soon. This is just my thoughts immediately after finishingI adored this. Yes, it was predictable and not what I expected. But by that, I mean it in a good way. I was nervous come the 60% mark and nothing was changing, but the last 3/4ths made up for that. The one thing I wanted more of was the characters and more back story. I felt we got a good chunk of Reed's past, but not a whole [...]

    16. I hate doing this. Picking a book obviously not meant for a 30-something mom of 2 and then beating it to death in ratings. But I had to.Alyssa Rose Ivy writes great books. Very entertaining, easy to devour, and incredibly likeable characters. Juliet, the main character in this book? Not so fantastic. She was so weak compared to the likes of Charlotte and Samantha in "Beckoning Light." She needed a many man validate her. The entire last 25% of the book seeemed unnecessary. The other reviews about [...]

    17. Review to come! :)UpdateFirst, a special thank you to Alyssa for providing a copy of The Hazards of Skinny Dipping for me to review!Now, on to the book!The Hazards of Skinny Dipping was my first "New Adult" read. While personally I have no interest in the whole "New Adult" vs. "Contemporary Adult" vs. "Adult" debate I can honestly say that no matter what you choose to call it I have to be in a certain mood to read it. Luckily for me, I found myself in the perfect mood for The Hazards of Skinny D [...]

    18. ‘This story is about skinny dipping, remember?One last piece of advice: if you decide to go skinny dipping, make sure your bring a towel.’As the blurb of the story says: this is not a story about first loves or self discovery. It was about rash decisions, finally scoring with the guy you’ve been crushing on forever but finding out that despite the good looks he utterly sucked in bed add up to this equation is the presence of this baseball cap wearing hot guy who works on a pizza place.I ju [...]

    19. I am a huge fan of Alyssa Rose Ivy's and I haven't read a book she has written that I didn't like. The Hazards of Skinny Dipping was no exception. I had been looking forward to reading this and Ivy delivered yet another great read. The book begins with Juliet finding herself at her family's beach house shortly before starting college. Everyone has gone and it's just her. It's been a summer to remember - one in which she has been completing a "challenge" of sort from her cousin, which is why she [...]

    20. Once again Alyssa Rose Ivy has written a book that I thoroughly enjoyed. There were quite a few things about The Hazards of Skinny Dipping that hit home for me. But what made the story for me was the relationship between Juliet and Reed. This book is about new starts, life lessons, and becoming your own persond maybe falling in love along the way. What I loved about Juliet was that she wasn't a naive girl. The beginning of the book starts off in a bold way, but I liked that. It showed me that Ju [...]

    21. 4.5/5 stars So, I am going to try and write a coherent review and not fangirl over how much I loved this book. First of all, as summer is nearly upon us, this is the absolute perfect summer read. It's fun, flirty, funny, and FABULOUS! (Hee.) This was my first book by Alyssa and I really enjoyed her writing style. I felt the pacing was perfect and that she did a great job developing our main characters.For the most part I really liked Juliet. The book begins with her cousin having given her a 'to [...]

    22. Brilliant character development - a great summer readcould also be called the hazards of building people up in your imagination :) The Hazards of Skinny Dipping is a cute romance perfect for reading on the beach yet it is also a cautionary tale encompassing ‘be careful what you wish for’. The tough issue of emotional abuse/controlling relationships is touched on within the plot adding to the depth of the story.Juliet possess my favourite traits for a female main character, sarcastic and sass [...]

    23. I was super luck to get an ARC for an honest review… and an honest review is what you are going to get! I loved this book!The Hazards of Skinny Dipping takes the idea of a Bucket List and turns it into something not death related! Who ever thought that cross that last item on you “Off to college” list would change the fate of your college love life.I’m sure when you were younger that you all had a crush on that one guy… the one that was older, hotter, never looked at you like you exist [...]

    24. This is pure fluff. I was in the mood for it though, so I enjoyed it. Juliet is refreshingly confident. She's easy-going and super chill. I enjoyed her snarky personality. She is always entertaining without even trying.A large part of the story revolves around the frat and sorority stuff so there's a bit of hazing and power plays and bullying going on. And there are a lot of hot but creepy boys after Juliet. I was half dreading and half excited to see which bozo would be the one to win her heart [...]

    25. **Thank you Alyssa Rose Ivy for the ARC of this book. :)**This was a great, light read. I had fun following Juliet as she waded through the first semester of college. I loved Reed! Though I have to admit I wanted more visualization when it came to the love scenes. I kept waiting to see if Dylan would drop by, for Reed to fight for her. Some sort of conflict so she could earn her HEA. Just a little. Either way this was an enjoyable read. Was great to read another of Ms Ivy's books. Look forward t [...]

    26. Aw, this was a quick, fun book. Starting with a skinny dipping scene is the perfect sign of a fin book. Since the beginning, I wanted to hit Dylan, and omg I'm so in love with Reed :)A perfect summer book!

    27. This is somewhere between a 3.5 to 4It wasn't all that deep but it was definitely fluffy and cute. Kinda perfect for the rainy afternoon when I read it.

    28. This book was so much fun to read! This excerpt is part of my 2013 Contemporary Month Event and is taken from my review on Into the Hall of Books. Read more here: intothehallofbooks/201Juliet is ready to head off for college when she receives an envelope from her cousin, Amy, with a list inside - on the list are five things to complete before going to college. The fifth thing on the list? Skinny dipping. Lucky for her, she has the perfect place - her family's private beach house has a pool. Unlu [...]

    29. I'm pretty sure Alyssa Rose Ivy could not write a book I don't love! This is my new favorite New Adult! It's the summer before Juliet is headed off to college. Her cousin thinks she hasn't experienced enough adventurous things to be ready so she gives her a list to complete before she starts her freshman year. The last thing on the list is skinny dipping. Juliet is at her vacation beach house and takes the plunge to swim naked in the pool. All by herself doesn't seem like much of an adventurous [...]
