Gia French is taking the first steps into her new life. A new job, a new city, a new beginning. To make things even better, she's finally getting to know her father.
A chance meeting brings these two unlike individuals together. Their first meeting was less than stellar but an unexpected incident draws them closer. And the longer they spend together the more intense their sparks burn.
But things take a turn that will takes these two on a journey that will not only test their bond but also put their lives in jeopardy.
As the secrets start to unfold and they begin to learn that their lives are intertwined, will they be able to solve the mystery before the danger over takes them?
Translating The Tides is a thrilling, seat on the edge of your seat, suspenseful read that takes the reader on a journey that will take your breath away.
Rob may be a rough around the edges on first appearances but if you take the time to get to know him you'll see just how amazing he is. His love for those close to him is just as deep as his love for his family. But it's the lengths he goes for Gia that is truly endearing.
Gia is a strong, independent woman that works hard for everything she has. Even when her father comes into her life she could have easily taken everything he had to offer and never lift a finger again, but that's just not her style. She's a grounded, well-rounded person you can't help but fall in love with.
The passion between Rob and Gia sizzles right off the pages. I love how they take the time to get to know each other both in the bedroom and out. They both can see just how special the other is and do the work to make their bond stronger.
I really loved this exciting and suspenseful storyline that will keep you guessing what will happen next with a flawed yet appealing hero, a bewitching heroine, and seductive romance.
I highly recommend you pick up Translating The Tides and let Rebecca take you on an adventure that will leave you with a beguiling book hangover.
First was the death of the friend at the beginning. I am totally fine with deaths in books, but I feel like whenever there is one at the beginning, the transition to that and the story is always so underwhelming and the death is always pretty glossed over, no matter how close the person was to the MCs. None of the reactions seemed right, and that goes for pretty much the whole book.
The sexual crap in this book wasn't hot, it probably could have been, but the author tried to make the MCs a bit too promiscuous, such as the H having two girls on call for threesomes for whenever, to the h bringing up how she has experimented with girls a couple times. Also this goes for all the friends too, and their swinger ways, like the two couples trying to invite the MCs in for sex, and having the two women in those relationships sexually being together and making a scene in front of everyone, including the MCs, who apparantly had a big problem being asked to join in, but no problem watching it, and getting off on it. Also, apparently no one can be loyal to their partners either, seeing as everyone was pretty much swingers or cheaters in this book.
Another problem was the dialogue, which was so overdramatic and unrealistic. There was also A LOT of it. I love dialogue in books, especially when there is more than inner dialogue, but when pretty much the entire book is talking, with no facial expressions, no descriptions, and no thoughts at all, it just felt very mechanic.
Lastly was the OW drama. Pretty much the first half of the book, the H isn't over his ex-fiance, and kept repeating that. Most of the time this is annoying unless the author pulls a miracle and just makes it as part of the development of the H. In this there wasn't any development at all, it was he knew he would love the ex always, but he just loved the h, or Gia, more. And of course because this HAS to happen with every book with ex drama, the ex comes back pregnant claiming it is the H's baby, and of course the H, thinking it is the right thing to do, almost picks her because shes preggo, over his gf that he "loves more". And then of course she runs, something happens to her, while the baby turns out not to be his, and the ex turns out to be the one who was terrorizing the h the whole time. When this happened, the book automatically went down a star. It is a terrible concept in romance books, and even more in suspense when so many other things could have happened instead.
Overall, not a great book, and not sure why it only has 4 and 5 stars, which leads me to believe they are all fans or friends of the author. Probably won't be reading this author again.
Rob is a former FBI agent seeking revenge for the death of his slain partner/best friend. Gia Is a girl seeking a better life. Their lives intersect and they are in for the ride if their lives.
The story is unique. The characters are very well written. The settings are so well written you feel like you are there (I definitely have some places added to my to do list).
