TRYST is 4 out of 5 stars My Blogging Reader s Review after reading anARC Copy of TRYST via BooksMoviesFandoms.wordpress.com TRYST is a new contemporary romance and the debut novel for author Alex Rosa I was given the opportunity the read and review a copy of this enjoyable and sexy read that follows the female character as she moves in with her protective older brother after breaking apart from a terrible relationship What she did not expect was her brother s roommate and best friend You ll be getting the story straight from the main character Skyler s P.O.V point of view.Skyler was in love At least, that s what she thought until her now ex boyfriend Jason became abusive and a nightmare Skyler is a beautiful girl with dark curly hair and lovely blue eyes that held so many secrets for the 2 year relationship she finally was able to escape She finds her escape when she moves in with her protective older brother Josh, who would do anything to take care of his sister and make up for being away when he left for school He s now a successful talent agent and Skylar is a determined pre med student When she moves in with Josh, she finally gets a chance to meet his best friend and roommate Blake The one rule her brother Josh gave her when she moved in was to never hook up or date Blake Not a big deal, she thought at the time.Blake Everett has the good looks of a classic actor and sexy model, which happen to also be his career goals He is ridiculously sexy, has an alluring smile and a confidence that he always seems to exude He doesn t make a great first impression when he meets Skyler and the whiny voice of his latest hook up coming from his bedroom doesn t help much either Skyler knows the one rule and thinks it will be easy to follow to have a roof over her head Stay away from Blake Simple Easy, right He s not her type But he is easy on the eyes but yeah, not her type at all.Her TA and friend Richard Rich isher style and the kind of guy Josh would like to see Skyler with But there has always been something in the way of that ever progressing beyond study dates, a little flirtation and the possibilities never flourishing to anything real TheSkyler gets to know Blake, theshe feels confused by her initial assessment of him And, theBlake gets acquainted with Skyler, she just begins to seem likethan just his best friends little sister The sexual tension is high and the romance thrives in such an exciting way Will Skyler s past interfere with her present life changes Is Blake s past going to always be who he is when it comes to women Did Josh make a good call to warn his sister away from Blake This story was enticingly good and the characters were all very likeable except for the ones meant to be unlikeable, of course Blake s character is sexy, intoxicating and definitely has potential at being book boyfriend worthy The scenes between Skyler and Blake are definitely a mix of steamy and exhilarating I recommend this if you re looking for your next little book Tryst Check this one out My star rating for TRYST is 4 out of 5 stars Visit my Blog and see Memorable quotes and character photos of how I imagined them while reading TRYST Click Here

to love this book, but I unfortunately I didn t The characters and the premise were there, but the execution of the story was not The flow of the character s verbiage and actions felt awkward Skyler was pre med, but some of her actions and behaviors felt immature The way she behaved at the bar and then when Blake s ex girlfriend appeared I love ex girlfriend drama, but those scenes felt like manufactured drama My other issue was that I am not a fan of when the heroine statesthan once that she should or needs to get laid I got it the first time she said it.It was hard for me to connect to Blake and Skyler I felt that their relationship felt forced There were times when I feltconnected to Rich and Skyler than Blake and Skyler This is not a love triangle Rich is a friend who feels , but Skyler really has her eyes set on Blake from the beginning I saw the author s intent, but I unfortunately did not feel it.A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review BLAKE Brother s best

romance It kept me riveted from beginning to end I highly recommend this New Adult romance In this sensational New Adult debut by Alex Rosa, boyfriends are too much trouble So what s the harm in a little fun With an abusive relationship behind her, Skyler moves out of her Orange County apartment, changes her phone number, cuts ties with her friends, and moves in with her brother Josh, a talent agent with a spare room in his incredible house in HollywoodJosh is happy to take Skyler under his wing, but he has one rule she can t sleep with his roommate, Blake That s fine by Skyler She doesn t want a man in her life right now and certainly not cocky Blake who s with a different girl every night But his all American boy charm and his ripped model physique are difficult to refuse Josh will

up to my expectations andThe story had a great dose of humour, love, angst, drama and forbidden love, whatcould you ask for in a book Styler is a amazing character and person She has no idea how great she is She is very low on self esteem and has serious commitment issues She has suffered through a abusive relationship which has caused her to have these issues He has worn her down to the point she feels she was worth nothing Luckily Skyler got to her breaking point in the relationship and moves to be with her brother in a Orange County She decides to cut contact with everybody in her old life and I felt so proud of her for that It must of took so much for her to face the reality of her life and get the courage to leave her whole life behind her, especially cutting contact with her friends to just so her ex had no chance of reaching her I really wanted to just give her a huge hug and tell her how proud I am of her for her courage to leave her live behind and I desperately wanted her to no she wasn t worthless at all In fact she was a wonderful, loving, courageous person who I wanted to hug through my kindle, Blake is Skyler s brother Josh best friend and lives with him to Blake is a charming, draw droopingly gorgeous man whore He sleeps around with everyone and anyone Josh makes it very clear that Blake is to stay away from Skyler Josh is very very protective of her, he knows what she s been through and does jot want Blake treating her as a one night stand like he does every women Blake captured my heart immediately though He may of been a man whore, but I could see the good in him straight away and I knew he was going to be a great character.Skyler didn t take to Blake straight away but she was attracted to him She didn t want to let on to him she was sexually attracted to him, however Blake had a instant attraction and wasn t shy about his feelings Blake however wasn t a reformed character and he does some very awful things to make Skyler jealous because they are both fighting their attraction for one another and they both know they can t do anything because Blake has promised his best friend he would stay away from Skyler and Skyler is dealing with the after arty if a abusive relationship.I read the book in one night I was gripped with the storyline and just loved loved loved Blake I couldn t get enough of him His character made the whole story He was so well developed and interesting that I couldn t help but fall in love with him I think I may have to make him my new book boyfriend LolI loved the whole taboo subject in the book as I m a fan of these types of books I loved the games, the push and pull and the angst between the couple throughout There was so much drama through the whole book that I couldn t get enough 4 StarsSent from my

just what the name implies, a fun, sexy romance It is the story of Skylar, a pre med serious student and soccer player She puts her schooling first, but after a nasty and I do mean nasty breakup she moves in with her older brother to continue attending college I really did like the brother sister relationship that Skylar and Josh shared I know she had her moments of doubt, but I feel like Josh really stepped up in the family department both of their parents passed away And then you have Blake Blake is josh s roommate and best friend out in LA He is an enigma wrapped in a contradiction, but he is a yummy one at that On one hand he seemed to open with Skylar, but in the other hand he didn t really open up about a lot of him at all It takes a good part of the book to get to know Blake and the funny thing is, you don t even know that you don t know him until things start to get revealed I know that sounds weird, but I was reading along and totally enjoying the story and I was thinking that Skylar was the one that needed to open up , and that Blake was up front with her about himself All that jazz and then bam, some stuff gets revealed about Blake and I was like whoa I had no idea he was even holding anything back You just have to read to know what I am talking about He is a complicated dude But I really liked that about him He is a good person at his core And he has slamming chemistry with Skylar.There are lots of roadblocks along the way and it has all the elements that you would expect this trope to have The sneaking around leads to confusion and jealousy It was a little predictable, but was nonetheless a very enjoyable ride I can t wait to readbooks by Alex Rosa Tryst really delivered If you are looking for a fun and sexy read, look no further than Tryst.This

that guy The player The different woman every night, player But he s different with Skyler, practically from the moment she meets him in the kitchen in his boxer briefs He can be a bit of an a hole, but you can see that he uses that as a defense Which is very similar to what Skye does with her sarcasm.Skye and Blake were perfect for each other, in a rather imperfect way The both hid behind lies, which they told each other and themselves, as they feel harder for each other The continued to play a game that hurt the two of them, rather than protect them But despite those games, there was never a time when I didn t believe these two wouldn t have each others backs It was there when Skye believed Blake would get the job he wanted or when Blake would do anything to protect Skye from her ex

best I have read I do not like Skyler One moment she is insecure the next everything is back to normal and I hate how she kept her friend Rich on the hook She already slept with Blake but still kissed Rich The first 75% of the story are really slowly Fortunately the last 25% were better and hadaction I did not like that at the end there were so many unsolved problems She never told Rich that a relationship between the two of them is not a possibility Her Ex appears in the book and wants her back but suddenly he is nowhere seen I was disappointed by the book I really liked the plot summary but the story could have been better developed
