Ride the Tide
Author: Julie Ann Walker
What I’m Talking About:
With a four-year break in releases in the Deep Six series, I thought I would have trouble getting back into the world and characters, but I worried for nothing. Ride the Tide focuses on the same group of retired Navy SEALS turned fortune hunters.
Although this time around there’s not much hunting going on as the group is on “vacation” while the two couples from the previous books are out of town.
Ride the Tide focuses on Mason’s past in the Navy and his personal life aka divorce. After catching his wife cheating on him five years ago he decided he wasn’t made for marriage and family life. He thinks he doesn’t deserve it because he’s not “normal” (his ex-wife’s words).
Alex is the girl next door type who is also super smart. Everyone in the group loves her and she loves Mason. Because she was too busy studying and focusing on a career she never managed to lose her v-card. She offered it to Mason but he turned her down. He fights the urge to take back his decision as they are faced with a mysterious group who tried to shoot him, Wolf, Alex, and Chrissy while they were out on a boat.
Ride the Tide has all the key elements of a Julie Ann Walker novel, heart, humor, action, and sexy romance. I’m glad she has returned to the series after a four-year break. I look for to the installment which I hope will feature Wolf and Chrissy.
My Rating: B Liked It — Recommend
About the Book:
Weary of being a fighting man, and burned by a bad divorce, former SEAL Mason “Monet” McCarthy is tight-lipped and self-contained. Unfortunately, he can’t avoid Alexis Merriweather when she joins him and his business partners in the hunt for the Santa Cristina.
Historian Alexis Merriweather has a motor-mouth and a penchant for pushing Mason’s buttons. When a dangerous man from Mason’s past threatens their lives and everything they are working toward, Mason must rely on old instincts and the skills honed from years running black ops to make sure nothing from his previous life touches Alexis’s present.
Of course, with their lives on the line and the adrenaline running high, it’s a foregone conclusion sparks will fly.
