Book Review

25046621“She’s here. I feel her.”
“Who’s here?”
“The one who’s mine.”

To the dismay of her family, Kris Edwards postpones college, despite a full-ride scholarship, and moves to the beach. She has a crazy feeling there’s something she has to find to figure out her life, and it’s at the coast.

She’s pretty sure that something isn’t Jericho, the too-hot surfer with amazing blue eyes. He’s way out of her league. And is that an actual electric spark that happens every time she touches him? She doesn’t have time for him—not with two jobs, a boozer neighbor, and her best friend’s stalker on the scene. Not to mention the weird black mist over the water or outside her workplace that no one seems to notice but her.

But there’s more to Jericho than Kris realizes, and she can’t blow him off so easily. He’s in tune with the magic of the tides, and only he knows of the evil that’s washed ashore and is coming for her. The closer Kris gets to him the more danger she’s in. But he can’t let her be—he’s been waiting years for her.

With Jericho by her side, Kris might find what she’s looking for. Or she might lose everything.

I didn’t know what to expect when I happened upon Spring Tide, but it sure wasn’t what I ended up reading! The story, while it was a fast paced book, the first 80% of the book feels slow. The last 20% of Spring Tide is where the magic happens -pun unintended- and the pace of the book is incredibly fast. Which was both a blessing and a curse. I loved that everything was fast paced, but I need more of the story!

There is two (2) points of view within Spring Tide. For the most part (and I do mean most part) the view is from Kris. Kris is a hard working girl who has a past that the reader doesn’t really find out about in detail; but is mentioned in kind of a passive way. Kris is a great character to be honest. I kinda wish I was like her! Kris is energetic, works hard, and tries not to let her past get to her. She always seems to find the good in people, and wants to help anyone she can.

The second point of view is…. I want to say a ‘Passive Narrator’ point of view. There are a few chapters spread throughout the book that don’t involve Kris, and is a backstage pass of what is happening around Kris’ life.

Spring Tide is such a whirlwind of a book. There is so much story fit into Spring Tide, I feel like I read 2 books in one! I’m incredibly intrigued about the second book, Tidal Wave. I hope to read Tidal Wave whenever I get my hands on it!

I gave 4 of 5 stars to Spring Tide on GoodReads.

Have you read Spring Tide?

Happy Reading!
