Cover & Synopsis Reveal: The Hazards of Skinny Dipping!

Alyssa Rose Ivy
June 2013
New Adult

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.

About the Author
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. What do you think?

eBook Giveaway: You Got Me by Mercy Amare!

You Got Me
Mercy Amare
Self Pubbed
February 8th, 2013
YA / New Adult

Synopsis via Goodreads
Roxy is broken
Aiden wants to fix her

No matter how hard Roxy tries to overcome her past, she can't. She writes on her arms to escape the pain, but nothing can soothe the ache that she feels.

Aiden didn't go to college to meet girls, he came to play football. Too bad that it is impossible for him to stay away from Roxy.

After meeting on the roof, they instantly feel connected, but neither of them are ready for love.

You Got Me is a story about new beginnings, and finding love when you least expect it.


Thanks to Mercy Amare, I have a chance to giveaway three ebook copies of her new YA/New Adult contemporary novel! Also, check out this interview I did with her HERE!
