On the Rocks Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

On the Rocks (Mixology #2)
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.

I'm all about '80s Flashback Fridays on radio stations as long as I don't have to listen.

I was so excited to read Macon and Carly's story!!! Needless to say (I mean it is an Alyssa Rose Ivy novel), it was awesome. I hope Brody gets his own story. I feel like he has the most backstory to share. Alyssa does a great job of writing light, fun romances that are also really cute love stories that leaving you craving another one.

Carly drops in on her brother unexpectedly to escape her parents. I loved the dynamic between the two siblings. Macon is probably going to be fired at the end of the summer when his boss's son, who hates him, takes over the family business. There really wasn't much drama in the novel, just a couple of things you wanted to see resolved: Carly's avoidance of her sister and parents and Macon's impending unemployment. I liked that, though. It left the novel to focus on the blooming relationship. It was nice. It was simple. It was cute.

If you want a fun romance focused on the formation of the relationship with little drama, this is the book for you!
