Editorial Reviews


"Read the synopsis and be prepared to CRASH! What I love about this novel is the "REAL LIFE" aspect. We all plan out our futures and know EXACTLY how we want them to play out...well rarely does that happen."
~ HJ Bellus, USA TODAY bestselling author

This story had my emotions a little crazy. Being a Carolina girl, I always love the local references to places. (I wanted a burger from River City at 7:45 am) Thank you Casey Peeler! I absolutely loved these characters. Marleigh and Gunnison meet by chance, enjoy spring break, and then try to work through a long distance relationship. Usually those fail. Life changes drastically for Marleigh as Gunnison moves forward with his plans. Several years later they reunite where he learns about the life changing events. They have been tested and luckily make it through and achieve their dreams together.

Love, secrets, betrayals, and transformations.

What happens when love at first site becomes complicated with real life?

The moment that Gunnison set his eyes on Marleigh he knew that there was something different about her. After a light, fun, and passionate week spent together during spring break they decide to try a long distance relationship. It turns out that life is far more complicated than either of them expected.

Marleigh's whole world gets turned upside down unexpectedly. She is young and afraid and she makes choices that her family does not agree with. Marleigh is brave and likeable but I had a hard time relating to her because a lot of her choices were selfish. I disagreed, got frustrated or completely disliked most of the choices that she made during at least 75% of the novel. With that said, I still liked her and felt that her reasons were justified in her own mind,

Gunnison was completely lovable. At the beginning of the story he is a star high school basketball player and as time goes by we get to see him grow into a star college player. He is smart, talented and commits to one girl at a time. When Marleigh completely breaks his heart without explanation he waits for years before he commits to anyone else. He tries to move on but lets girls know that he is still in love with someone else. Its hard for him to move on when he has no clue what happened between him and the only woman that he has ever loved.

Secrets never stay secrets for long.

As Gunnison gets the answers that he has been longing for Marleigh's deepest kept secrets come to light. Crashing Tides is filled with emotional angst, sweet love, and frustration. I experienced so many ups and downs throughout this novel.

Crashing Tide is a roller coaster ride of emotional highs and lows, love found, lost and then found again, and one big secret that complicates it all.

Marleigh meets Gunnison during Spring Break her junior year in high school. It's love at first sight, but they only have a week and there are hundreds of miles separating them when the week is over. Despite that, they fall hard and fast. They made future plans.

Then it all came crashing down.

Things changed for Marleigh and she chose to let Gunnison go. He was devastated, didn't understand. His heart was broken and so was hers. A few years later, they run into each other again and old feeling come crashing back.

When I say this is an emotional roller coaster, I mean it. I don't always enjoy books where I feel like I can stick to one emotion, but in this one it worked. I have to admit, though, that I knew a happy ending was coming and I skimmed more than read several chapters because I so desperately wanted Gunninson and Marleigh to get their happily-ever-after. Once they did, it was so sweet and so worth it.

What a great book! The book takes place over the course of several years and does skip forward in time at several points in the book. I would recommend for readers 17 and up.
