    I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

    This is a fantastic romance novel that swept me away to the Caribbean! I loved it!

    Lauren Biltmore is a fantastic character. She has survived an attack, but is still emotionally affected. I liked her very much. Although she is tougher than she realises, she believes herself to be weak. However, if I was attacked and survived what she had to go through, I'm not sure I would be sunning myself in a tropical paradise; I would more than likely be residing in a facility with padded walls! Meeting Noah Reynolds may just be her salvation.

    Noah Reynolds is also a fantastic character. He is charismatic and sexy man, who has skeletons in his closet. He meets Lauren and sparks fly!

    This is an extremely fast paced read that hooked me from the first page. I loved the intrigue and mystery surrounding Noah's stalker. Who were they, and what did they want? Both Lauren and Noah are "damaged goods" in that they both have gone through a traumatic experience, although completely different ones. The story is told with alternating view points between them. This gives the reader the opportunity to understand what each character is going through at a given moment. I wanted to shake Lauren a few times, especially when she started to fall to pieces, as I knew she was capable of handling the situation. I think that out of these two characters, Noah may just be the more sensitive one. I'll leave it to you to decide if you agree with me or not. The attraction that sparks between these two characters is intense; the romance scenes are hot without being too explicit or erotic.

    Amber Lea Easton has written an exciting and thrilling romance that flowed beautifully. The intrigue, mystery and danger kept me on the edge of my seat! I highly recommend this book if you love romance novels. - Lynn Worton

    Gripping

    This is a highly suspenseful, sizzling romance. The characters truly grabbed my heart and wouldn't let go. With each turn of the page, I wondered what would happen, would they get out of this alive, would they find their happy ending. Brilliantly done! If you love romance, deeply carved out characters, a story filled with twists and turns, then you MUST read Riptide. If you're a romantic suspense fan, this one will truly satisfy you. The author did an excellent job--I actually couldn't figure it out! Ha. I loved that. Highly recommend. I read this author's other book, too, (Kiss Me Slowly) and have concluded that Ms. Easton has truly mastered the art of romantic suspense.
