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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

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.
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.
