Review: The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Posted July 15, 2013 by Christy / 1 Comment

Format: Kindle Edition Source: Bought Pages: 248 pages Publication Date: May 17, 2013 ( Goodreads / Amazon)   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.  I saw this book on sale for .99 on Kindle […]
