What are you getting yourself into. . .
She’s in over her head and he’s in hot water…
Visiting her friends Ellie and Charlie in Hawaii was supposed to be a much-needed vacation for journalist Justine Simms. But when she learns the notoriously reclusive pro-surfer Chase Ryder is coming out of retirement for a competition, she knows she’s found the perfect exclusive to save her career. Of course, then she learns he’s the gorgeous, secretly nerdy guy who broke her heart a year ago.
Will Davenport—aka Chase Ryder—doesn’t do interviews. He keeps his real name out of the papers and doesn’t mix his public life with his private. That is, until the still-heartbroken Justine blackmails him into giving her an exclusive. Seeing Justine, stunningly beautiful as ever, brings back all the feelings he had before. But despite their smoldering attraction, nothing has changed since he had to leave her the first time.
This novella (3.5 in the series) is super cute but still has it’s ups and downs. A point that I found impressive in this itty bitty ebook. There’s a reason I don’t usually read the 5. Or 2.5 or 3.5, I find them to be rushed with no character development and lacking a plot. MAKING WAVES, although I didn’t form a deep connection or attachment to the characters, I still liked them (something that seriously determines how much I like or don’t a book).
We have a journalist and a yummy surfer with a past. Of course the surfer has more secrets and the journalist is begging for the scoop. What really happened that night? The night she died? This 3.5 book is something that you cannot stop reading. Although predictable, still fun enough to keep me reading.
Overall, this book is a solid 3 out of 5 stars.
“She kind of accidentally bumped into his chest on the way out. Well, maybe not so accidentally. She saw his muscles through his shirt — they’d just needed a closer physical inspection.”
Overall, this was what you’d expect for a middle book. What do you even call the books in the middle? Like, do they have a name?
