Alyssa Rose Ivy
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.
Alyssa Rose Ivy is a New Adult and Young Adult author who loves to weave stories with romance and a southern setting. Although raised in the New York area, she fell in love with the South after moving to New Orleans for college. After years as a perpetual student, she turned back to her creative side and decided to write. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and two young children, and she can usually be found with a cup of coffee in her hand.
New Adult is a relatively new category of literature that has been taking off like a frikin' rocket. Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about it as a lot of it just seems to be more about adding sexually explicit romance than about encompassing that age group of the 20-somethings. However, I really like the sound of this one and am looking forward to its release. As a sophomore in college, I've really been wanting to read more YA-like books with college student main characters. And the cover, subtly sexy and I love the colors! Also like the dreamy haze.
