I am never really any good with these things, I kind of feel like I am at a job interview. So let's see, what can I tell you about me and my little blog thingy? Ok well I am an avid reader and have been doing since I first learned how. About a year ago I became a part of the review world. I am in no way a professional and I pretty much do it for the fun of it. I have no rules and no guidelines for myself, well except for I always have to be completely honest. And you can tell by my reviews that I have posted so far that I have no problem at all with that. I add my personality to every review and I know things don't always make sense but I bet you laughed(hopefully). I usually stick to romance books but I have been know to pick up others if the cover and synopsis garb my attention. I currently help out on a couple blogs and reviews teams plus I am an occasionally guest reviewer on one.
To tell you about me well, I am a 30+ year old stay at home mom. I went completely blind about two years ago. But with a couple of eyes surgeries I now have complete vision back in one eye. I have a serious weakness for tattoos and I am currently proudly showing off 12 of my own. Yeahhhh, so that's it for now.
This book was given to me by Netgally for an honest review.
So I finally hopped on the roller coaster know as Riptide and let me tell you it was a hell of a ride. Dear lord this book had me straight from the beginning and let me tel you I want to have this man's babies. Yesus!
I want to start out by telling you that I hate Brooke! And no, not because I don't think she is a great character but because of the man she got paired with. I am actually quite jealous of a character, how freaking sad is that? Anyways, so Brooke is just making it through life with what she has. She lost a chance at her life's dream due to a career ending injury, so instead she goes to school to try to help people get through the despair she had felt for a while. One night on a crazy whim she goes to an underground fight with her best friend Mel. And that is where she meets him, the him of all hims lol. Remington "Riptide" Tate. I do believe this is the most alpha male I have yet to come across in a book and i read a lot of alpha books. Good lord, the man scented her, ugh! I am dying here, goooodnessse is so deliciously broken that he just sucks you up into his world. When he smiles you smile and when he goes black, you go black with him. I really did love both these characters. Brooke was so strong and stood up for anyone she thought was being let down, wither it was by themselves or someone else. And Remy was just so loving in his own way, that it melted me. I was a puddle right along with Brooke half the time. Let me tell you that Remy has now raised my alpha standards so high I am not even sure anyone will ever be able to reach them. Guhhhh.
So on to the story, I really liked it. It did however have a few down times for me where it was just so much useless info that I scanned through some paragraphs. But overall I fell in love with the whole story, especially the characters. This story was so raw and the author never held back in any of it. She along with her characters told you exactly how it is and how it was going to be. I loved it, craved it even lol. Awesome, just awesome is all I can really think to say. I can not wait to read the rest from this series.
