One broken heart, one drink too many, one steamy night in the sand...

No one warns you about the dangers of drinking with a broken heart. At least no one warned me. I never imagined I'd fall for a musician, especially not one like Chase, but then again I never expected to have my heart broken into a million pieces by the frat guy I thought was the love of my life.

Sometimes it's the rash decisions, like hooking up in the sand, that lead you to the best places—the kinds of places where it's possible to let yourself fall in love again.

The Hazards of Sex on the Beach is the third installment in the Hazards series. Cara thought she had found the one only to find out he had been cheating on her with his ex. With school about to start back from winter break she heads to a party with her friend. She never expected to go out of her comfort zone and have sex on the beach, but quickly makes a run for it. While it was supposed to be just one moment she can’t stop thinking about the stranger in the sand. After returning back to school she attempts to avoid her ex even agreeing to go with one of her sorority girls to a concert.

The last person she expects to see is the guy from the beach who she can’t get out of her mind. Chase hasn’t forgotten about Cara either and he’s even written a song about her as she’s his new muse. When he at the concert while performing he is determined to see her again. Even learning that she had no idea he was in a popular band. Cara isn’t looking for anything but Chase is hard to forget and the two embark on a whirlwind long distance relationship. Will to pair be able to handle the challenges of a long distance relationship?

I wasn’t sure how I felt about Cara in the prior books in the series but maybe it’s because she didn’t have her own voice. Now that I’ve had the chance to really get to know Cara she may just be my favorite. I found her to remind me of myself, and I even had the crazy whirlwind long distance relationship too just not the beach part. I loved the chemistry between Cara and Chase they are exactly what the other needs finding love outside of their comfort zones. I love that we have the added bonus of getting to so many of the past characters and I’m curious who gets their happy ever after next.

I honestly picked this one up after reading the first one but haven’t found the time with so many books to read. I had no idea who the book was about when I started but I was surprised to see we are getting Cara’s story but the more I learned about Aaron I’m glad she ended it with him to find Chase. I like that this book had a long distance relationship that both parties had been committed to seeing it work it’s becoming more common in this day and age to see relationships using video chat. I enjoyed every moment of Cara’s story I was captivated right from the start hard to put down. The author has created another beautifully written installment in the Hazards series. I’m anxiously looking forward to the next book in the series can’t wait to see who will find their other half.
