    So New Adult is such an up and coming field.  I know a lot of bloggers who have resisted it. But I love it.  That borderline is great, somewhere between adult romances and YA is perfect for me!




    ANYWAY… This book, it was good. I really liked Lexie.  She shows up in Florida really broken and broken hearted and really learns to live again.  Being chased by two different guys is a challenge she wasn’t expecting, but one that seems to work for her.




    Dakota Madison writes a truly appealing story. I really felt myself drawn into this story and really cheering for Daniel.  I loved Eddie for his sense of humor and confidence, but you could just see that Daniel was such a great guy! Then there were the twins that Lexie worked with! Holy cow, they were fun!




    Overall, this was a fun and enjoyable story and I enjoyed it! A great beach read to put in you bag for the summer!

    I can never pass up a good love triangle book, so when I read the synopsis and saw it: 1) had a beach setting, 2) had a love triangle, and 3) was a NA contemporary, I knew I had to read it.

    I really enjoyed this book. I did find something slightly off with the writing style; it felt a bit juvenile at times, but I was able to ignore that and really enjoy the story between Lexie, Eddie, and Daniel. I did have an issue with how the end just cut off. It didn't cut off to a point where I didn't receive plot resolution; it was just an abrupt way to end the book.

    When we first meet Lexie, she has just moved from Illinois to Florida to escape her recent heartbreak of losing her fianceé... to her sister. Ouch. She meets her surfer next door neighbor, Eddie, who is downright sexy, flirty, and oozes confidence. She is instantly attracted to him, but reminds herself she wants to steer clear of men for the time being. However, on the first day of her new job she meets Daniel, who is shy, sweet, and also good-looking.

    Personally, I liked Daniel instantly. I don't usually go for the bad boys though. There's something about a good, sweet guy who is willing to do anything for you. And just because he's a good, 'safe' guy doesn't mean he Lexie don't have chemistry. It's just a different kind from what her and Eddie have.

    I kind of saw Eddie and Lexie have more of a physical attraction going on, where Lexie starts developing feelings for Daniel that she can't ignore.

    There is alot of tension in this book that I really enjoyed reading, but wow- Daniel and Eddie are complete polar opposites of each other. Where Eddie is confident and cocky, Daniel is unsure and insecure. I have to admit that did drive me a little crazy at parts in the book. Then again, she was kind of leading them both on, so I can understand his insecurity, especially since he said Eddie always gets the girls and has been burned in the past.

    Overall, it was a quick, light read with relatively no angst. Madison didn't overdo Lexie's heartbreak or turn the story into a heavy one and I really liked that. But there is not a whole lot of plot development, it's a very basic storyline of two guys falling for the same girl and forcing her to make a choice.

    *I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review*

    Slow No Wake is an emotional roller-coaster ride where, Lexie, a mental health therapist runs away to another state after a bad break up. She just wants to start over in a new place and concentrate on putting herself and her heart back together again. What she does not expect is when she is unloaded her stuff to move it into her new apartment a hunky surfer dude named Eddie approaches her and her warning bells go off. This guy is a definite player, but he is hot and charismatic, and he makes Lexie’s girl parts go into overload. She cannot catch her breath around him. He is constantly around pursuing her, and they are constantly fighting and have snark contests.

    When Lexie starts her new job she meets Daniel. Daniel is everything that a woman could want in a man. Lexie’s reaction to him is more of a slow burn. It is not a raging inferno life with Eddie, but there is still something there. Lexie does not know what to do. She left home to get away from a man who damaged her. Does she really want to get involved again so soon? Lexie has a lot of choices to make. Will she stay celibate or will she tackle Eddie or Daniel? Will she give love a chance?

    Dakota Madison is a truly great writer. In her quest to write twelve novels in twelve months, she has created some really great stories. Her characters are realistic and not perfect. The girls are snarky, ungraceful, and no model pretty. Her guys are gorgeous, but sensitive once you get to know them. Slow No Wake is an intense story that arouse, entices, and seduces the reader. Having the attention of two guys who truly want you is an overwhelming aphrodisiac, and a fantasy that every girl wants to read about. The emotional side of this story ranges from painful to loving. The journey that Lexie takes is one of self discovery and healing and they guys help her along this path. An amazing read that will have readers looking forward to the next Dakota Madison novel!

    Lexie wants a drama free life. Free from waves so she makes her own catch phrase "Slow No Wake". However, she really isn't very good at abiding by her new motto. She is quickly attracted to not one but two gorgeous men that both want her bad. 




    While Slow No Wake is a quick and enjoyable read it's a little predictable. The characters were definitely my favorite part of this novel. Lexie's co-workers were written perfectly. Serenity and twin sister Trinity were hilarious and for some reason I ended up loving Brad.

    The emotions expressed in this book are so overwhelming. You laugh, cry and fall in love along with the characters. If you like hot boys, summer, and forbidden love - get this book.
    It’s a great book and has a great author who has so much talent and I would not only recommend this book but also the author to almost anyone.
    This book was amazing and addictive! I could not put it down it was that good. The characters had depth and there are twists in the story that just make you want to keep reading! I wish there was another sequel to this book because I love it so much! I was sad when I finished it. I recommend this book to anyone that loves a romantic love story!

    Slow No Wake was about a young woman, Lexie who, after being cheated on by her fiance, with her sister, moves across the country to start over. Her plan is to take some time for herself, with peace and celibacy but as with life, plans rarely work out. 

    As she is moving into her new apartment, she meets Eddie whom she is immediately drawn to. He's the womanizer that a girl just can't resist. 

    "I don't do two-night stands." 

    As she starts her new job, she meets Daniel.

    He wasn’t the type I normally went for either in looks or personality. He was more reserved and less self-assured than I was used to. He was almost the complete opposite of my ex-fiancé, which was certainly appealing, but there was more to it than that. I felt an inexplicable connection to him even though we barelyknew each other. I was sure that I wanted to get to know him
    better. 

    Daniel and Eddie are polar opposites but she's drawn to both. Her heart wants Daniel but her body lights up for Eddie. 

    So because this book is short, it lacks the depth that a longer book would. This is more of a novella then a novel. It focuses on the heroine and tends to brush over a lot of details. As long as you understand this going in, you will get swept away with the story and really enjoy it.
