One small town boy, one girl who wants more, one roll in the hay...

Hooking up with your high school crush is a bad idea, a really bad idea. It was only supposed to be one night, one brief departure from my real life, but nothing ever works out exactly the way you plan.

Colton Waters was everything from my past that didn't fit into my present, so why did he have to show up at my college and pledge the one frat I couldn't avoid?
Because nothing is ever meant to happen just once. At least not the life changing things that mean the difference between falling apart and falling in love.

Field parties are about as much fun as they sound. It’s just a bunch of kids getting wasted in the middle of nowhere as a way to pass the time. They were lame in high school and even lamer after a year spent away at college. Yet there I was, drinking my third Smirnoff (it was that or crappy beer) waiting for my friend to finish messing around with her boyfriend so she could drive me home.
I sighed, turning my back on the line of cars illuminating the pasture that was, thankfully, devoid of cows at the moment. Someone was blaring really bad music that I knew would be stuck in my head for a week.

Mallory may be home for the summer but it’s quickly coming to an end when she will be returning back to college and a life away from the small town. When she runs into her ex-‘s little brother at a party things are anything but simple as the night ends rolling in the hay. While he may have read more into it Mallory isn’t willing to get trapped with a small town guy she has plans for the future so she leaves town avoiding Colton. Thinking she’s left him behind because he will head off to another college Mallory immerses herself back in her sorority even meeting a returning Kappa.  

However on the night they meet the new pledges Mallory is shocked to see Colt is a new Kappa pledge and he’s not ready to let her go just yet. While Mallory tries to stay away it won’t be easy with him showing up every chance he can to try to win her heart. Plus after a few dates with Tanner it’s clear that she wasn’t into the one night stand like she thought. Will Mallory settle for the safe relationship or risk her heart on going against everything she’s told herself she wouldn’t?

I really enjoyed Mallory as a character it’s not easy to leave the small town behind speaking from experience but I think she does a good job fitting in with life on campus. Plus she has her two best friends Juliet from the prior book and Cara. I love that the characters from the prior book intertwined throughout this one and I’m looking forward to who’s story we will meet next after all we met a new sorority girl.

I’ve had this one since I finished the last one just needed to find time to sit down and read and I Finished The Hazards of a One Night Stand in just an afternoon. While the concept isn’t new the author has created a beautifully written college romance that just melts my heart. I enjoyed the story its fun made me smile and made me cry with happy tears I’m a sucker for a happy ever after. I love that the author brings back characters from the prior books because I loved Juliet and Reed so much and even though they are my favorite I still really like Mallory and Cara and I’m curious to see if the next one is Cara’s story. The Hazards stories are New Adult so they do have some steamy parts but I think they are tastefully done and not overwhelming in the books. I loved every moment of the book it’s a fun story with great characters and well written. I admit that the author is one of my favorites and I do auto buy without reading the synopsis but I’ve never been disappointed a must for any fan of romance. Or someone wanting to check out New Adult.
