Summary:  This isn't a deep book about first loves or self-discovery. If you want a book like that, I'd be happy to recommend one, but I don't have that kind of story to tell. Instead my story is about rash decisions and finding out that your dream guy is bad in bed. It's the story of when I finally went skinny dipping, and how my life was never the same again. Oh, and it's also the story of my freshman year of college and realizing Mr. Right might have been there all along.

My Thoughts: I don’t know, when I saw this one on goodreads, I knew it was a must read. I felt like it would be great!

We are introduced to Juliet who is starting college soon. Right before college, she goes skinny dipping, in her own swimming pool. Sounds interesting, right? Well a neighbor guy she’s known forever decides to join her. She’s always had a crush on him, so you think it would be magical, right? They have sex. It wasn’t magical, yet he seems to think it was. In his mind, now she’s his girlfriend.

She starts college and he’s around a lot. He’s controlling and a jerk in my eyes. She also meets another guy named Reed. Now, Reed I could see her with. They started off as friends in a weird way, but it worked. Things were rough but they had some great talks and they seem to hit it off, but all she had eyes for was her boyfriend. Until things get crazy and she ends up not with him anymore.

She then gives another guy a chance, and she realizes just how things can be.

There is a lot of drama that happens in this one, and I feel like if I say too much I’ll give away all the storylines or things that are happening or that amount to the big finale.

I liked Juliet enough but at times I feel like Juliet was kind of naive. I just didn’t fall for this story how I thought I would. I read a lot of young adult so its hard to love everything I read.

I did really like Reed, and he is what made the story for me. I liked the parts with him in them. I liked getting to know him.

Overall: The Hazards Of Skinny Dipping has an amazing premise, and I liked it enough, I just didn’t love it. I thought the To Do List was neat.  I never really fell for any of the characters or connected with them very deeply. I’m glad I read this, but I probably won’t read it again.

Cover: Its awesome. It is what attracted me to the novel in the first place. Very cute!
