Exclusive First Chapter + ARC Giveaway – Shaken Not Stirred by Alyssa Rose Ivy

shaken not stirred

I’m so excited to share with you the first full chapter of Shaken Not Stirred,
the first book in Alyssa Rose Ivy’s sexy new Mixology Series! Alyssa says…

SNS follows Maddy as she navigates the post college graduation waters when things don’t go exactly as planned. This book isn’t about a girl making big decisions, it’s about one handling the fallout of her her dreams– or at least the dreams she thought were hers. Along the way she meets Colin, a twenty-something who’s not quite as lost but needs to learn about balance, and she finds her place living with two guys– one her childhood best friend. SNS has the same romantic yet comedic feel of Hazards, but it focuses on the early twenty-something experience rather than college. I had a ball writing it, and I hope you guys enjoy this trip to the Outer Banks!

This book is due out January 7th! Make sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post to win an ARC of the book!


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.
