This week my book boyfriend is Chase Denton from The Hazards of Sex on the Beach by Alyssa Rose Ivy.  He's hot, sexy, and a musician and lead singer in a rock band.  Ready to meet him?


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.



He took a strand of my hair and studied it. “Is this your natural color?”


He dropped the strand. “I’ve never dated a girl with blonde hair.”

“Well, you’re not dating me.”

He gently brushed his fingers down my bare arm. “No, but I want to kiss you.”

“Then kiss me.” I was used to pushy guys. The kind that knew what they wanted and took it.

“Okay.” He smiled before leaning in.

The kiss was hesitant at first, the kind of kiss that gets your whole body excited because you know there’s more to come. I waited—hoping he’d take it further. His hand slid just under the hem of my shirt, brushing against my skin. The touch was light, but it was still enough to get a response out of me. I moaned.

That must have been what he was waiting for. He deepened the kiss, pushing into my mouth with such force I was taken by surprise. I kissed him back, enjoying the sweet taste of his mouth, and the way his hand slowly inched its way up my stomach. Blazer moved from zero to sixty. I didn’t mind it. I moved onto his lap, welcoming the arm he put around me to pull me closer. I wrapped my arms around his neck.

His hand moved higher, cupping my breast over my bra. I was drunk and hot, and so turned on I was going to lose it.

That’s when the door to the roof opened. The loud laughter of a group of girls pulled me half out of my lustful stupor.

“Want to go for a walk?” His question was asking something else entirely. I knew that when I answered with an enthusiastic yes.

Blazer held my hand as we made our way through the crowds. I looked briefly for Gabriella, but I didn’t see her. The normal Cara would have called her to tell her I was leaving with a random guy—but was Blazer random? We had chatted for hours already.

Before I could worry about it long, we were walking along the dark and nearly vacant beach. It was January on the South Carolina coast, and the crowds were months away.

“You never told me your name.” He said it as a statement as he led me further away from the party.


“Hi, Cara. I’m Chase.”

I smiled. “Isn’t it a little late for introductions?” I stopped and turned toward the ocean.

“It’s never too late.” He drew something on my arm with his finger. The sensation felt good. I closed my eyes.

“You look so gorgeous. The moonlight, that look on your face.”

I opened my eyes and his face was inches from mine. “If you’ve never dated a blonde, does that mean you’ve never had sex with one?”

“Why? Are you looking to change that?” His eyes were lidded.

“I’d like to.” I slipped a finger into the waistband of his jeans.

“Should we go back to my hotel room, or do you have one?” He looked down. “I’m going to be honest here. I haven’t done this before.”

“Please don’t tell me you’re a virgin.” That would be just my luck.

He laughed. “No. Not saying that at all. I just don’t generally hook up with girls I’ve just met.”

“At least you know my name.”

“I do know your name, don’t I, Cara?”

Something happened to me when he said my name. I needed him. I reached up again, wrapping my arms around him. I crushed my lips into his.

We came up for air only after ending up horizontal on the sand. He laughed. “Or we can just pick things up right here.

My Review:  
After her ex cheated on her Cara is nursing her broken hear with the help of her friends and a bit of alcohol.  She still couldn't believe what he'd done to her, the jerk.  After a little coaxing with the help of a few drinks, she decides to do something she normally would have never considered, a hot one-night stand.  Now all she has to do is find the perfect guy.  She finds "the perfect hottie," whose name happens to be Chase, and they wind up having a heated encounter on the beach that was the best sex either of them had ever had in their lives.  Cara decides she wants to leave the memory perfect, so she quickly exits the scene afterwards, with nothing more than a first name exchanged between them.  The problem is, she can't get the hottie in the blazer and the things he does to her out of her mind.  When a night out with on her friends brings Chase into her path again, she finds out not only his last name, but that he's kind of famous...the lead singer and rising star in a band.  Talk about complicated.  When Chase finally finds Cara again, he is determined not to let her run away again, but will the pressures of fame, long-distance relationships, and past hurts be more than Cara and Chase can overcome?

The Hazards of Sex on the Beach is the the third book in The Hazards Series, and is a companion novel that can be read as a standalone, though you do get to see the characters from the previous two novels, which I enjoyed very much.  Chase is the new guy in the series and I totally loved him.  He's nothing like you'd expect, and is exactly what Cara needs.  Cara really comes out of her shell in this novel.  She has been wounded and her self-esteem is really low, something that Chase is determined to help her overcome.  As their romance intensifies, this sorority girl and hot musician who seem to be totally opposite have a lot to overcome, but they also have a lot of fun and hot times in the process, but when situations arise that throw the past back in Cara's face she must decide if she is going to turn and run again, or face it head on.  

The Hazards of Sex on the Beach is a fun, sexy little novel that is the perfect summer beach read.  It is romantic, engaging, and will just make you feel good as you read about these characters, their relationship, and all that happens in the process.  Alyssa Rose Ivy is one of my favorite authors and true to form, she has provided her fans with another great read.

  1. I've only read the first book, but I liked it. I'm glad you've continued to enjoy the series, Ellen. Chase sounds great!

  2. This series is on my next to read list when I have time to read something from my TBR. I have put it off long enough and it is just crazy because I absolutely love her paranormal series so much that I just know I will love this one as well.

  3. +JMJ+

    It sounds like the sort of fantasies my friends and I had when we were in high school! LOL! ;-)

  4. I love the title of this one, it sounds so fun!


Thanks for your comments. I love hearing from you!
