Author: Alyssa Rose Ivy
Publisher: (January 7th, 2014)
Add to: Goodreads
Order here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository, Amazon UK

NOTE: This is a "New Adult" novel. Due to mature content this title is recommended for ages 17+

Synopsis: Finding the perfect guy is like mixing the perfect drink. It's all about the taste and presentation.

Maddy's gone off the deep end, at least that's what her family thinks when she handles her med school rejections by moving to the Outer Banks. It doesn't help that she's paying her bills by bartending and is sharing walls with two guys, even if one of them is her childhood best friend.

Her choice of men seems more balanced on the surface—Colin is driven, sexy, and gainfully employed, but she can't help spending her Thursday nights searching for the perfect drink for Lyle, whose music captivates her with its haunting lyrics. Maddy believes everyone has a perfect drink—and finding Lyle's isn't a challenge she's willing to lose.

YAY for another Alyssa Rose Ivy Release with Shaken Not Stirred! 
Keep an eye out for my review soon during the blog tour.


Excerpt:

          “I think I need to build up those expectations.” He leaned over the center console and crushed his lips against mine. I responded immediately, loving the way his lips felt and wanting more. He pushed his way into my mouth, and I eagerly welcomed him. Cinnamon and desire mixed as he intensified the kiss. I needed to be closer, and I pressed my body against his. It wasn’t close enough, and he lifted me over onto his lap. 

          My arms wrapped around his neck as his hands slid down my back. I wanted him. Right there in the parking lot with the top down on his convertible. It was like I was sixteen again with hormones controlling everything. God knows what would have happened if I hadn’t leaned back into the horn. 

          “Whoa…” I started to move off his lap. 

          He braced his hands on my hips, stilling me. “I think we set expectations too high. I don’t want to wait until tomorrow.”

          I broke free, moving to my side of the car. “Remember what I said. I’m going to leave you wanting more.” I got out of the car, pausing to glance back at him. 

          He groaned. “You’re mean, but I deserve it. Sleep well, Maddy. Tomorrow night can’t come soon enough.” He sat there while I walked inside. 

          I mustered every ounce of resistance to stop myself from running back to invite him up.

  1. Oh, the perfect hero? That's a tough one...I always feel like I have a type and then I find all sorts of heroes attractive! I am a fan of the good guy though...the one who's sweet and funny and smart but has that sort of smoldering edge to him, too. Thanks for the giveaway!
