Due to a letter from her dead mother, Jessica travels across the country to the wilds of the west coast in search for answers, but instead she finds two gorgeous men who want her in their lives and in their bed. Rory Frazier’s birthright is to lead their secret colony of selkies, but only if he and his blood brother, Evan Sinclair, can find their mate.

This thrilling series debut has strong, passionate characters that readers can easily relate to and easily captures their hearts with a heartfelt romance full of sizzling chemistry. The relationship is full of fiery sparks, scorching hot passion and lots of sweetness but it is also full of emotional turmoil  due to secrets being revealed that impact their lives and of course Jessica having to come to terms with a triad relationship. Readers can’t help but sympathize with Jessica and encourage her to seize her future with both hands as they become caught up in their story.

 

The plot of the story is fast paced and full of suspense and excitement as the truth about Jessica’s past and with some stunning twists, the colony’s secrets comes to light as well as who and what Jessica really is. The author has created a wonderfully steamy and fascinating world about selkies with her own unique twist on the mythology that really changes things up, especially her take on their skins ensuring that readers can really sink their teeth into the excitement and passion, leaving reality behind.

Susan lives out on the Canadian west coast surrounded by open water, dear family and good friends. She’s jumped out of perfectly good airplanes on purpose and accidentally swum with sharks on the Great Barrier Reef. If the world ends, she plans to survive as the spunky, comedic sidekick to the heroes of the new world, because she’s too damned short and out of shape to make it on her own for long.

 

Writing is her joy, her escape from reality and the only way she knows of to quiet the nagging harridan of a muse the universe assigned to her.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Riptide (Boys of Summer) by Jordan Ford
Riptide (Boys of Summer) - Jordan Ford

@mpearlauthor, #Contemporary, #Romance, #YoungAdult, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

Jace - or Bass as he is known throughout most of this book - is a thrill-seeker. He is the ultimate paradox - a bad boy who doesn't actually try to be bad, and has a heart. He makes stupid decisions based on hurt feelings. His story is completely understandable and heartbreaking with how he feels. Ms. Ford has done a magnificent job of bringing him to life, to make his quandary completely relate-able.

And that's the thing with this book. As a reader, I got it. I could see where Bass was coming from, and why he behaved the way he did. Would I make the same decisions? No, but then I'm not a sixteen-year-old boy with the same experiences as him.

With no editing or grammatical errors that jolted me, I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, and can't wait to see what happens when he goes to Ryder Bay and meets up with SnapDragon.

As a standalone, this is a great read. As a prequel to the next Ryder Bay story, it's fantastic! Definitely recommended by me.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

Star Wars: Riptide
Star Wars: Riptide - Paul S. Kemp ‘Star Wars: Riptide’ by Paul S. Kemp is a follow up to ‘Star Wars: Crosscurrent’ and features many of the same characters. To avoid plot spoilers it is best not to read this review if you haven’t read ‘Crosscurrent’ yet, which you should do. It’s quite good.

Following the events in ‘Star Wars: Crosscurrent’, the clones exit their dead moon on the ship that belonged to the Arzat assassin Kell Douro. Jedi Knight Jaden Korr pursues them, assisted by Khedryn and Marr, the interstellar scrap merchants who got involved in the last adventure. Marr has some Force sensitivity and Jaden starts training him in Jedi ways. Khedryn is learning to be less self-centred and more concerned with the rest of the galaxy. He’s a bit of a Han Solo sort, the devil-may-care adventurer with a secret heart of gold.

The bad guys are interesting here. Darth Wyyrlok wants Jaden Korr alive, for reasons unknown, and dispatches two Umbarans called Nyss and Syll, a brother and sister pair who somehow nullify a chap’s connection to the Force by their very presence. All things are connected to the Force but Nyss and Syll are not. They are a kind of hole, a vacancy, and can make themselves undetectable to Force users. They have another clone helping them which they term an Iteration, to be activated when needed. Nyss soon shows himself to be both deadly and ruthless.

Meanwhile, the clones that started all this trouble, the ones who escaped from the moon, are heading for some mystical presence they call Mother which is calling them across the galaxy through a female named Seer who hears that entities summons. The world of ‘Star Wars’ now covers a long span of years and evidently has a kind of pre-history, ancient civilisations that preceded both the Republic and the Empire and had different kinds of science. There is mention of Rakatan technology in connection with Mother and of an even older race, half-legendary, called the Celestials. Of course, all this stuff may be familiar to die-hard fans but it was new to me and added pleasing depth to the whole ‘Star Wars’ concept. The clones are dying from a condition acquired in the last book and hope that Mother can save them. Even though they are given to lopping the heads and limbs off people who get in their way, author Paul S. Kemp manages to elicit some sympathy for their plight.

This is a fine action/adventure story with lots of fighting, chasing and last minute escapes for the heroes, just like in the movies. In fact, it reads like the novelisation of a pretty good film. It’s never slow and the pace picks up to breakneck speed at the end as all the protagonists come together for a grand finale. ‘Star Wars: Riptide’ is just as good as ‘Star Wars: Crosscurrent’ and might be even better. A solid, entertaining contribution to the franchise. I wouldn’t mind more adventures featuring Jaden Korr and his mates.
