Purchase Your Copy of, "Tidal," Here!
*New Adult Romance*
Now that Willow Avery is out of rehab, she's got one chance left to prove herself before she’s officially on every producer’s shit list. At least, that's what her parents and agent are claiming. She doesn't really give a damn if she never makes another movie or not—she just wants to get on with her life, get back to her friends, and find her next escape. But Willow is broke. And whether she likes it or not, acting is the only job she knows how to do.
When she accepts the lead in a beach drama, Willow finds herself in Hawaii. And in Hawaii, she finds Cooper, the gorgeous surfer hired to train her for her new role. With the bluest eyes she’s ever seen and the sexiest Australian accent she’s ever heard, Cooper’s different from the men she’s used to. He doesn't want to use her. And he refuses to let her fail. But when an old friend re-enters Willow’s life—a friend whose toxicity she’s been drawn to time and time before and whose presence brings about the painful memories she's tried so hard to suppress—Willow will have to choose between the girl she was and the person she’s becoming. The lifestyle that helps her forget the pain and the guy she’s falling hard for.
Tidal is a non-stop wave of emotions, no pun intended ;). When we meet Willow we are taken for a ride immediately. She's a washed up actress, who has recently been released from rehab. She has a history of substance abuse and self destruction.
The day of Willow's release from rehab, she is told of her upcoming film role, in the movie "Tidal." Unbeknownst to the film producer, her agent, and the hotty surfer God sitting at the table with her, she is seething. Willow is also told she must learn to surf and start filming in less than a months time.
The Hotty Surfer God is Cooper. He is mega swoonish, cocky, has a seriously hot dimpled cheek, and has a brilliant Australian accent! Lucky for Willow, Cooper will be teaching her how to surf. Cooper not only can give out surf lessons, but turns out this hunk of hottness is also a surfing legend of sorts. The only drawback for him, was being in the limelight.....sometimes the flashes of the past tend to haunt him the most!
Willow needs to learn to trust Cooper, and the best way to do it is in the water. They form a close friendship...but over the course of their training, it turns into more. Can it work? They both are hiding behind pained moments of their past and they're too proud to talk about them. Willow is scared to let anyone into her heart....she can't afford to be used and abused again. Cooper needs what they have and is pushing for more....but is he pushing too far?
Be prepared for your heartstrings to be pulled. Grab your Kleenex, and get settled in for a nights worth of reading. This book is utterly HEARTWARMING! It is delicious, beautiful, and so deep that I cried for both Cooper and Willow. Emily Snow knows how to truly turns words into a masterpiece, her writing style will pierce you mind, body, and soul.
