"Brother's hot best friend? A steamy friends with benefits arrangement? What more could you want? Tryst is a fun, tantalizing read!"--New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack

Tryst is a standalone new adult contemporary romance. It is a fun romp with the brothers best friend turned secret romance trope. It is a fun read that will have you fanning yourself. I am even more impressed when I found out that this was Alex Rosa’s debut New Adult novel. Tryst is just what the name implies, a fun, sexy romance. It is the story of Skylar, a pre-med serious student and soccer player. She puts her schooling first, but after a nasty (and I do mean nasty) breakup she moves in with her older brother to continue attending college. I really did like the brother sister relationship that Skylar and Josh shared. I know she had her moments of doubt, but I feel like Josh really stepped up in the family department. (both of their parents passed away.)

And then you have Blake. Blake is josh’s roommate and best friend out in LA. He is an enigma wrapped in a contradiction, but he is a yummy one at that. On one hand he seemed to open with Skylar, but in the other hand he didn’t really open up about a lot of him at all. It takes a good part of the book to get to know Blake and the funny thing is, you don’t even know that you don’t know him until things start to get revealed. I know that sounds weird, but I was reading along and totally enjoying the story and I was thinking that Skylar was the one that needed to open up more, and that Blake was up front with her about himself. All that jazz and then bam, some stuff gets revealed about Blake and I was like “whoa! I had no idea he was even holding anything back.” You just have to read to know what I am talking about. He is a complicated dude. But I really liked that about him. He is a good person at his core. And he has slamming chemistry with Skylar.

Tryst is a first-person-present story about finding love even when you aren't looking for it ... and in fact, are resisting looking for it.

By the synopsis, I was sure this would be right up my alley, however I am sorry to say it fell a little flat. The first eighty percent or so, I just kept pushing through and waiting for something to happen to advance the storyline. Skyler is supposed to be a twenty-something pre-med who is focused on studying and becoming a doctor ... But she never seemed all that serious about her studies, and was willing to blow them off willy-nilly. In fact, to "hear" her words and thoughts, I'd have been sure she was really a sixteen year old high school student. So much angst. So much cliche overuse ... The sight of Blake LITERALLY made her weak in the knees. She was captivated by his lips and eyes multiple times in every single chapter. I get it. The man is gorgeous. That fact was driven home and I will remember that Blake is gorgeous until the day I die ... so mission accomplished there.

The editing could have been better. It was NOT terrible, not by a long shot, but there were a lot of oft-repeated words (huffed, smirk, eyes, lips, etc) and ... interesting phrases. Observe:

What is it with you?”
He runs his hand through his hair. I think he knows what I mean, but instead responds, “What do you mean?"

I will, however, say that I saw absolutely NO typos in the entire book. :)

With these things as they were, I would have happily rated Tryst three and a half to four platypires ... But then we hit the eighty percent mark. Things started picking up. There were a few outright adorable scenes that immediately captured my imagination. Then it ended.

This is a tale of two reviews. There's the side where I liked parts and the side when things just got on my nerves. So lets look at both sides.

Parts I liked...

I enjoyed the banter between these two. Blake is used to having girls fall at his feet but Skyler tells him like it is. She intrigues him and brings out the better guy that's inside. They are just plain fun together. They certainly know how to bring the sexy too. I enjoyed the amount of time they spent together, even if it was in secret.

I loved a lot of the secondary characters. Tucker is lots of fun. I love how he gives the best advice to Skyler. Then Jennifer and Vanessa are great too.

There was some interesting conflicts between them. And they communicated well despite the situation. What I loved when people found out. It wasn't quite what I was expecting but it worked.

I love those stories where the man whore finally wants just one girl. And I loved how Blake came to understand that. I love how he told her. I love them snuggling and falling asleep together.

This one has a feel of being closer to life than fiction. I enjoyed that.

Overall, I enjoyed they story but I'm not down for book two. I read the blurb and I think I'm just happy thinking of them together.
Parts that got on my nerves...

In the spirit of cheating this one walks the line. They have a friends with benefits thing going on but it never feels like that emotionally to me. And they both go out with other people. It seriously bugged me. Specially since Skyler knew she wasn't interested in the other guy but it was like she used him. And that other guy was still involved with his ex.
