I am a child of the 80s and 90s, so this book along with Ms. Torrest’s Remember When strike a happy reminiscent chord for me with all the music and pop culture references of those times. DTS is a fun, light, romantic comedy although it does have its moments of angst to balance out the happy.

Liv grew up with a dad who always wanted to make it big, but his band missed their chance at a big break and now they play small festivals and weddings. Although she had a pretty cool childhood by most standards, she feels like she missed out a few of the more normal things you experience in school by traveling so much, and her dad’s past actions have caused her to question men in general at times. At 23, she has no real clue what she wants to do with her life but she enjoys the music scene and attends as many shows as possible with her best friend and wing woman Tess. She shows her appreciation for a great show to the musicians but isn’t a groupie in the sense she is in it to have fun for one night only without trying to sink her claws in for more.

Jack Tanner is the rock star that will send her world off its axis. He is gorgeous and talented but he shocks her when he refuses her attempts to “show her appreciation”. Slightly humiliated, she reacts badly but he isn’t going to let her off the hook so easily. He is definitely interested but is sick of the one night stands- he wants more from life and thinks she could be it after spending some time talking with her. He has an uncanny ability to see right through her and it scares the wits out of her.

After some persuasion and a bit of chasing, he gets her to agree to a bargain of sorts. They will go on 10 dates before they have sex for the first time.

After falling head over heels with Tina's writing, characters and ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING about her Remember When series, I was over the moon when I first learned about this book last year. It's been a long time in the making. (Fun fact: it was written BEFORE the Remember When series.) I had the pleasure of beta reading Down the Shore, but that didn't influence my opinion at all. It was just a great, fun and sexy story that I thoroughly enjoyed. (I also have to admit that I haven't read the "final version" of the story, but I know of several of the changes and can't wait to find time to reread the final book. I know the late version I read was fantastic and with the changes that were made, I'm positive you read an *even better* book than I did!)

I'm definitely a child of the late 90s. (No admission of age here!) Anytime I read about the late 90s, I get incredibly nostalgic. Now, I definitely wasn't having the same experiences Livia was – and I never spent time in New Jersey – but damned if I didn't feel like I was right there with her. And, at the same time, I was remembering all the fun times with my girls from high school. Books set in the 90s just speak to me and Tina's characters shout louder than all the rest. Her writing is amazing, and more than that, she writes how I think so I always find myself totally wrapped up in everything dealing with her books.

I started Down the Shore one night an hour or so before bed and had to force myself to go to sleep. I'm pretty sure I dreamed about being on the Jersey Shore in 1995 that year. I spent the morning in my office wishing I was able to forget about working and dive right back into this story. When I couldn't take it any longer, I took an early lunch and didn't stop reading until I'd finished the other half of the book.

This book has been a long time in the making. I feel like I've been waiting to read this book forever. I read my first book by T. Torrest a little over a year ago. Since then, I've been following *ahem stalking* her on social media to find out when this book would be available. In the mean time I devoured the four books she'd published and as any good fan will tell you, it's the wait that kills you as publication day draws near.

Down the Shore was worth the long wait and everything I was hoping it to be. I loved meeting Livia and Jack and everyone else who made up their crew. Both Livia and Jack had strong personalities and were used to getting their way. It made for a very interesting courtship seeing them battle down their first instincts to jump into bed and instead get to know one another first. I, like Livia, hoped Jack would cave at the first temptation, but instead came to respect him as more than the talented, hot, gorgeous, rock star he was. Jack was a good man too.

This story is told from Livia's point of view and I absolutely loved being in her head. Livia is honest, sincere, and funny. She goes for what she wants and makes no excuses about it. However, she's also an amazing friend and someone who has principles to make sure her having fun doesn't hurt anyone else. I loved that about her. I completely understood her reticence at being in any relationship, especially one with a musician. She was just protecting herself from past lessons. I wish I could've gotten into Jack's head a little more, although I think that would've only made him more delicious some how. I was really impressed with him for the most part. He did do some boneheaded things, but then again, what guy doesn't?
