Sometimes opposites don’t just attract — they collide with all the violent passion of a rogue wave.
I sailed every ocean, saw the worst that humanity had to offer, and accomplished… nothing.
The world is just as screwed up now as it was when I set out to save it. The futility of it all left me disillusioned. Numb.
Then an idealistic beauty burst into my world, shining a light into all the dark corners of my soul.
The last thing she needs is a summer romance with a burned-out wreck like me.
I shouldn’t want her.
But I do…
When I look at Tate, I see a legend. He’s done it all, seen it all — lived my dream.
Too bad he doesn’t see what I see.
He thinks he’s all wrong for me. Too old.
But age is just a number. In our souls, where we’re both one with the sea, we’re the same.
He says I shouldn’t want him.
But I do…
They clash in every sexy, dangerous way imaginable. But is attraction — and maybe even love — enough to overcome all that stands between them? Or will their happily ever after remain elusive?
Every book I’ve read by this author has hit the mark for me. I enjoy her style and voice because even when her romance journeys are also bringing light to a societal issue that is life altering important, the growth and romance between the characters always takes center stage. With Rogue Wave I liked that she wrote Tate as having the opposite regard to life and the age difference. Both those aspects matched him and the story well and provided the synergy Luna and Tate needed to make the story that much more compelling and heartfelt. It was because of their differences *but not really* that they matched so well, and I loved reading their journey because of them and it!! (I hope that makes sense lol) Add in a bit of turmoil and dramatics and you’ve got yourself a pretty good journey that unfolded well and also incorporated side characters I hope to see in future books 🙂
