Making Waves (Perfect Kisses, #3.5) by Ophelia London ~ Blog Tour

Now Available!

Making Waves (Perfect Kisses, #3.5) by Ophelia London

She’s in over her head and he’s in hot water…

Visiting her friends Ellie and Charlie in Hawaii was supposed to be a much-needed vacation for journalist Justine Simms. But when she learns the notoriously reclusive pro-surfer Chase Ryder is coming out of retirement for a competition, she knows she’s found the perfect exclusive to save her career. Of course, then she learns he’s the gorgeous, secretly nerdy guy who broke her heart a year ago.

Will Davenport—aka Chase Ryder—doesn't do interviews. He keeps his real name out of the papers and doesn’t mix his public life with his private. That is, until the still-heartbroken Justine blackmails him into giving her an exclusive. Seeing Justine, stunningly beautiful as ever, brings back all the feelings he had before. But despite their smoldering attraction, nothing has changed since he had to leave her the first time.


My Thoughts:

4 stars - I so adore Bliss books and this one was  really sweet!

There's nothing quite like a good Bliss book.  I just love them.  This one is part of a yummy series that I've enjoyed in the past.  I've read Falling for her Soldier which comes right before this one.  (Check out my review for it HERE.)   It can easily be read stand alone.  I did enjoy seeing Ellie and Charlie again though.

If you're looking for a quick, light read that's just satisfying, then this is it.   It's a perfect beach read because it takes place in Hawaii and has sun, beach and surfing.  The character development is centered around Justine and Will.  I liked that.  Sometimes it's nice just to deal with who the stories about and not a lot of secondary characters.

These two had been dating a year ago.  Neither wanted it to end but one night changed things.  Justine doesn't really have a clear memory of what happened since her alcohol intake was over that top that night.  When she discovers her Will in a surfing contest, she has a way to find out - with just a little blackmail.

These two are cute together.  Their chemistry is strong and they had already gotten to know each other.  Trying to keep their hands off long enough for Justine to get her interview was fun. 

I really liked both Justine and Will.  Oh course, Will and his dragon tat was my favorite.  That tat had a way of making Justine unable to form a complete sentence. Teehee.

For 99¢, this one should not be missed by any romance lover.
