Tryst by Alex Rosa
With an abusive relationship behind her, Skyler moves out of her Orange County apartment, changes her phone number, cuts ties with her friends, and moves in with her brother Josh, a talent agent with a spare room in his incredible house in Hollywood.
Josh is happy to take Skyler under his wing, but he has one rule: she can’t sleep with his roommate, Blake. That’s fine by Skyler. She doesn’t want a man in her life right now—and certainly not cocky Blake who’s with a different girl every night. But his all-American boy charm and his ripped model physique are difficult to refuse. Josh will never know if no one ever tells him. And a little secret now and then never hurt anyone…
Skyler made one promise to her brother, Josh. Blake made one promise to his best friend, Josh. But they’re “bad” and don’t follow the rules. The sexual tension between Blake and Skyler could be cut with a knife. Alex drew me in with the banter between characters and the scandalous encounters happening so closely under Josh’s nose. Tucker is a fantastic friend and I hope to see his HEA at some point. In addition to that point, I was hoping loose ends would be tied up regarding Jason (Skyler’s creepy ex) and also a better understanding of what happened to Josh and Skyler’s parents as I think this plays a major role in why he’s so overprotective of Skyler and of course because of Jason. The content and plot flowed smoothly and I didn’t want to put Tryst down. I wanted Blake and Skyler to shed light on their “thing” so we could experience more of them living happily together in public. Twists and turns were thrown in causing my stomach to tie up in knots *ahem* (Marguerite, Jason, and Rich) but they were the wrongs that led to the right. Tryst is exciting, sexy, and will make your heart stutter. Seeing a commitment phobe be romantic does funny things to my heart. Give this a try and find your next book crush! Rating: 3.5 stars
