This is my first book by Karin Cox and although romance isn't her normal writing style it's a really good read. Its a book of two halves before and after and although it does jump around a bit it's still easy to follow and I really enjoyed it.
Juliette Brewer lives in the small Australian town of Willow Bay with her mum, she's a shy self confessed book nerd and was born with a Mati as her grandmother calls it ( the evil eye) she can see disasters in her dreams before they even occur but never enough information to be able to stop them.
Ash Gordon is a local surfer and life guard with a bit of a reputation with the ladies but the day he meets Julz (Juliette) he only has eyes for her.
There's is a sizzling chemistry between them straight away but they are each hiding things from each other and when disaster strikes are they be strong enough to make it thorough, both will have hell to deal with but hopefully it will make them stronger.
What The Sea Wants is another new milestone for Karin Cox. A story with magical realism that delves on the life of Juliette Brewer, the girl who had the Evil Eye. Juliette or Julz could see disasters or misfortunes right before they take place. Like a school bus accident where some kids died. Or a shark attack in the beach. She saw them happening in her dreams, but she didn't know when or where those unfortunate events would happen. Until it was too late for her to act upon them. Such a curse, indeed.
Ash Gordon, the man who can't be moved, the apple of every ladies' eyes. He's got the reputation, alright, but nobody knew the real him: the man he truly was. And when he encountered Julz, his world (and the ocean) turned upside down.
What I actually loved about this book is the environmental awareness that the main characters disseminated throughout the story. That the ocean deserves to be treated with care and importance. That dolphins are our friends, that we should take our part in making sure the fish in the sea swim with garbage-less water. Because what the sea wants, the sea gets.
The characters, Ash and Julz are strong and deep. There's more to them than just toned body, pretty face and adoring/raging fans. Their flawed personalities make them believable and real. I even found the sexual innuendos quite a treat. And that thing that happened to Ash was something that tore a piece in my heart.Read more ›
