Shaken not Stirred by Alyssa Rose Ivy review

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.


This was one of those all consuming reads. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. Alyssa Rose Ivy nailed it with this one. 
I love Maddy and her life dilemma's. It's the age old question, I graduated, now what? It's not an easy question. Through in a few guy friends, an uninterested crush, a guy pining after her and a gaggle of random guys who want a piece of the bartender.
Colin. I loved him. He was great. Lyle, didn't love him so much. I really enjoyed the banter between Macon, Brody and Maddy.
There were a few hilarious situations that made this book so worth picking up. I give this amazing story five stars!
