Love has only ever meant one thing for Charia Brooks: pain. Enduring years of emotional and physical anguish has taught her how to survive. Now she’s determined never to let anyone in again. Comfortable with her new life, she celebrates her success by treating herself to a tropical island vacation.
Garrison Carter’s life has proved as volatile as the waves he surfs, and he’s learned to roll with the punches. So, when the crimson-haired beauty rejects his advances, he has no intention of giving up easily. He’ll do whatever it takes to wear down her defenses, even if it means exploiting his duo-tone eyes and enticing dimples. Unable to resist the blond and tatted surfer, Charia gives in with the notion that it’ll be nothing more than a few lecherous encounters. However, it’s an easier-said-than-done resolve when he proves very different to other men and her defensive instinct kicks in.
Helping Charia come to terms with her past isn’t as easy as Garrison had hoped. The closer he inches to her heart, the further she pushes him away. The struggle also brings Garrison’s own dark history to light. Atrocities will be shared, weighted guilt will be borne, and profound realizations will surface. It will not only take the couple down a turbulent path, but cast doubt on any possible future they may have.
Sometimes, when two people seem irrevocably shattered, they’ll find their broken pieces fit together just perfectly. But, is mere love ever enough to truly conquer all?

I’ve read this book twice because it was a story that captured me. It took a hold of my heartstrings and wouldn’t let go! Crimson Tide dealt with some serious true to life issues. It was dark, emotional, alluring, very unpredictable and had me laughing out loud at different stages. Charia and Garrison struggled with the demons in their past and finding comfort in each other was not an easy feat. Their journey was filled with many ups and downs. At first, I couldn’t understand why Charia was behaving the way she was. Then as her story played out, it broke me -made me cry. I can undoubtedly say, this is one of the best books I’ve read, since 2019 started. The premise was great. The plot was realistic and the main characters were lovable. I loved it!! An enjoyable read that I would certainly recommend to everyone. This was my second Read from this author. She captured me with her brilliant writing style in Finding A Keeper and I was excited to read more from her. She didn’t disappoint. She is truly an amazing author. Thank you Michelle Geel for sharing this breathtaking story!
