The book starts out at a fast clip, and the pacing was steady throughout the book. I enjoyed both characters and the friendship that grew between them. I loved the heroine’s friend, Rose. She is feisty and down to earth.
Lizzie is a likeable character. She is a woman on a mission and is willing to work incredibly hard to achieve her goals. She has a loving relationship with her brother and is a dedicated friend. She certainly likes Mark, but for me, what they have is friendship.
I also liked Mark’s character, but I did not fall in love with him. When he takes the job, knowing it is not what he truly wants to do, bothered me. Then he takes advantage of Lizzie’s work ethic. It was so obvious his heart was not in the job. Now, I did like his dog Scooter a lot and he added a sweet component to the story.
Unfortunately, I did not feel a lot of chemistry between Lizzie and Mark, partly because what I read was a bit superficial. I never truly bonded with either character to the point I fell in love with them. I think they were better friends than lovers.
This is a sweet, sometimes funny story with interesting characters. The book is well-written, and even though I did not love it, I did enjoy Tidal Patterns and would probably read other books by Ms. Paige. Happy reading!
If you are looking for a feel good romance Tidal Patterns will make you smile & its a great beach read.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Lizzie wants a new position at the Island resort she works at. She is good at her job and is qualified for the promotion. She also needs it to fulfill the stipulations in her parent's will. Mark is asked to apply for the position. He is unsure that it is something that he wants to do. In this case, the job gets in the way of a budding friendship and romantic relationship.
I liked the characters. Both had a lot to give, but because of previous hurts were afraid to extend themselves. The relationship seems to progress slowly, but in reality, it is a very short time period. A lot of the building of their feelings takes place while they are talking to friends.
I felt that situations in the background were not fully resolved. You have an idea of why Lizzie is denied a raise, but it is left a little vague. The state of the will and Lizzie's decisions left me wondering about what the consequences will be. Those were a few questions that I was left with and maybe there will be a book in the future that will answer them.
Overall, this is an enjoyable book. I found it to be clean with kissing. There is one scene where Lizzie is drunk that is funny.
I received a copy of the book to review via Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
This is my first read by Rachelle Paige.
Tidal patterns was a sweet romance story between two event planners who are workaholics. I liked this romance between Lizzie and Mark it was a clean read only kissing. There are some funny moments between the couple. I would have liked more character development and more passion in their romance but overall I enjoyed this book. This is an HEA love story.
I really liked that they were both going for the same goal. If yet for difference reasons but both trued to stay true to themselves. Also liked that while there was instant attraction, there was not the instant lust and sex and it build up to it sweetly. It really fit
While I liked most characters and the villain, I however was not a huge fan of the both of the main characters, sadly.
Mark, came over as very whiney and feeling sorry for him. Elizabeth was not as bad but also had some flaws, like always over thinking and thinking about what other people think/
While in most books I like the dual POV, in this book it seemed almost too much and with their “inner ”dialog it all seemed very long. They argued with themselves way to much and often like I said, whiney. Sometimes it just seemed like the same stuff over and over.
Overall I thought it was a sweet story, but the characters could have used a bit more work and or less in some points.
I rate it 3★
