Blog Tour: On the Rocks (Mixology #2) by Alyssa Rose Ivy with Excerpt and Giveaway

ON THE ROCKS (Mixology #2)
by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Published:  May 29, 2013


Love is best served on the rocks.

My roommates look really good naked. At least one of them does. I’m sure the other one does too, but I haven’t seen him without his pants on. Living with two guys wasn't something I’d ever considered, but the opportunity fell in my lap, and I’d have been crazy to turn it down.

College went by in a great big blur leaving me with less of a direction than I had going in. Add in a family that wanted nothing to do with me, and my post-college plans were less than clear. What’s a girl to do when she has nowhere else to turn? She moves to the Outer Banks and learns to bartend. After all, it was my horrible bartending skills that led me to my roommate’s bed and into his heart.

ON THE ROCKS is a contemporary romance and is a part of Alyssa Rose Ivy’s Mixology Series. It is being released on May 29th, 2014! It is priced at just $.99 right now. This will last for a limited time only to celebrate the release!

On The Rocks Excerpt:

I usually didn’t pay much attention to the hostess when I walked into the Grille. I just waved at whoever was working before making my way over to the inside bar first to look for Maddy. I nearly did a double take when I saw Carly standing there with her brown hair cascading down the back of that oh-so-tight black t-shirt.
“Hey.” I didn’t have the brain power to come up with a more clever opening line. I was using every ounce of it to force myself to look at her eyes. There was no sure fire way to piss off a girl more than to get caught staring at her chest.
“Hi, you made it.” Her voice was playful, and I took it as a good sign that her evening was going well.
“It looks that way. Max got you working already?”
“Yeah, he hired me on the spot. I’m special, huh?” She ran her teeth over her lower lip. It was a sexy action that had me thinking inappropriate thoughts again.
“Oh, you’re special all right.” I laughed. Teasing Carly wasn’t the same as teasing Maddy; we didn’t have the same sort of history, but I liked it for different reasons.
“I’m guessing you’re just going over to see Maddy at the bar and don’t need me to seat you.”
“Yeah, but I’ll miss out on your mad escorting skills.” Damn. That came out all wrong. “And by that you know I mean escorting me to a seat.”
She blushed a little. It was cute on her freckled cheeks. “You mean you weren’t referring to my call-girl skills?” She said it completely dead pan.
“You never know what they’re teaching in college these days.”
“How long ago did you graduate? Two years?”
“Two years is a long time.” I put a hand on the hostess stand. “Good luck, and keep those escorting skills clean for me tonight. You’re going to be my roommate you know, you need to stay on the up and up.”

  1. How interesting....some good Wednesday morning reading..

  2. I just love the covers on all of the books in this series.

  3. This series looks awesome! I'm a big fan of Washington Apple as a drink or the oldie but goodie Cosmo. I've also had a couple of the Disney themed mixed drinks you find on Pinterest that were pretty good.

  4. I need to become friends with a bartender! My go-to drink is a yummy strawberry margarita. I'm now knowledgeable enough to order anything else. My buds all drink beer and I can't stand the stuff! Since reading your blog, I am so interested to read both books in the Mixology series, thank you :)

  5. This sounds great! Thanks so much for sharing :)

  6. I love Alyssa! I really need to read this series. It definitely sounds fun. Thanks for the excerpt! :)


Thanks for your comments. I love hearing from you!
