Review

Riding the Wave is a book you don’t want to miss! It has it all: a hot-as-hell hero and heroine, intense chemistry both in and out of the bedroom, and sharp, witty dialogue. Tanner and Avalon’s story will enthrall you one minute, then tug on your heartstrings the next. I loved this book, and I think you will, too.”—New York Times Bestselling Author Deirdre Martin

Riding the Wave is the first full length novel in Lorelie Brown's new series, Pacific Blue. This was my first time reading a book written by Lorelie Brown. Riding the Wave was a fast-paced, fun-in-the-sun kind of read :)

Tanner Wright has been away from San Sebastian for years. When he comes back for the biggest competition of his life, he comes back with a secret that could destroy his family. When Avalon comes face-to-face with her best friend's brother, she can't deny that he makes her feel alive. As days go by and they grow closer together, the secret that Tanner has been hiding might be the only thing that will tear them apart.

I really liked this first installment in the Pacific Blue series. I had only read one other book about surfing and it left me wanting for more. I was really happy when the opportunity to read Riding the Wave came along. This book really focused on Tanner's profession and passion. I really liked how it blended in with Avalon's passion for photography as well. The detailed description of how he felt while surfing was incredible! I really felt like I was on the beach while reading this book :)

The secret that Tanner has been keeping from his family and Avalon plays a big role in this story. I understood his POV on why he's been keeping this secret for so long, but I felt that his family deserved to know what his dad had done. Tanner made some mistakes, but in the end he learned some valuable lessons. There was a character in this story that I loved to hate. His involvement in the story was a great addition. I won't say more about it because I don't want to use spoilers in my review.

Avalon and Tanner were sexy, flirty and passionate.

I was in the mood for some California sun and surf with my romance so I eagerly grabbed up this ultimate summer beach read. It doesn't matter if you're into surfing or not with this one since the characters, plot and setting are the main event and at its heart it's really 'the prodigal come home small town romance' theme with the small town just happening to be a beach town hosting a surfing tournament. While I enjoyed many things about this book, I can't say that I ever really got into it.

The story opens with professional surfer, Tanner Wright, returning home after ten years away due to self-inflicted exile. At the beginning of his surfing career, he learned something devastating about his dad that cut him to the core and would hurt his mother and sister if they ever found out. He stayed away because being anywhere near his dad knowing what he did just enraged him and he was afraid that he'd blurt out the terrible secret. Now his dad was dead and he was back as an aging surfer to maybe go out a winner with the pro surfing championship. He hoped that he would keep it together around his family knowing they still cherished good memories of husband and father.

Avalon Knox was just fourteen when she started crushing on her best friend's brother, but then he left and she never saw him again. Something happened between Tanner and his dad, but neither man would say what it was. Avalon loved the Wrights as her own family the way they took her in and practically raised her when her own mom was off doing her thing. She is angry about the jerky way Tanner stayed away after his dad's death when his mom and sister needed him, but this doesn't stop her from instant attraction and want when she sees him back. He seems pretty interested in her too.

A ride not short of Amazing.Loved this book..
When Tanner Wright came home to San Sebastián
after being gone for so long, he was also recovering from an accident.
A hidden secret he was keeping from his family. It was his fathers
and if his mother and sister found it, well he just could not
fathom it.
He ran into Avalon Knox who was living with his family.
his mother sort of adopted her after she had some issues with
her mother.

Avalon Knox could not believe Tanner was back home she had such a crush on him.
She still did. Now she was offered a big photograph job and it was
featuring him. It was a very important job for her.

He was however the Pro surfer now back for a big world championship on the line. She had to
capture the best shots. That meant 24/7 with him. He was not happy, but they made it work.
A little closeness is evident and becomes a little more.

It didn't go too smoothly at first. They needed to work there differences out.
When Avalon tried to make things easier it just caused more
problems. In the long run Tanner helped her and well
you definitely need to read to see where it goes.

When the secret comes out it get's interesting. See what happens you won't be disappointed and might shock you too.

Love Lorelie Brown's writing. Kept me interested all the way through the book.
Looking forward to more books.

I was so excited to read this when I read the blurb for two reasons, one being that it contained one of my fave tropes, little sister's best friend and the other being surfers something I hadn't read about before. However the book fell flat for me mainly because of the hero and heroine. The hero was an ass, for most of the book he obsessed over two things, his issues with his father and the secret he'd been keeping for ten years and the championship while his interest in the heroine took a back seat. It felt like she was more of a convenience to him rather than that he had feelings for her except coming down to the end of the story where he was all he couldn't live without her, this would have been more believable had he spent half as much thinking about her as he did his aforementioned obsessions.

The heroine to me felt like a pushover she never really stood up for herself, case in point she and the hero have an argument she tells him off but not fully then almost immediately tries to pacify him. Another is that she has issues with her mom that she never confronts her about. She's described as somewhat of a wild child who influences the hero's sister but this behavior is never displayed by the heroine it's just told to us.

This book just did not work for me no matter how much I wanted it to.
