"Nate West. Hollywood bad-boy. Television megastar. Womanizer. Basically everything I hate about the male species rolled into one handsome package. And yet…I want him."

Ellie Turner is a lesbian. She has tattoos, short hair, and a ‘don’t-mess-with-me-attitude.’ She knows who she is, loves who she is, and couldn’t care less what the rest of the world thinks of her. And since she has the most kick-ass best friend on the planet, Noah Clark, even when family drama gets in the way, nothing can offset her happy-go-lucky demeanor.

Until television star Nate West comes along. All thick muscle and alpha-male testosterone. When Ellie meets him on an airplane the only thing Nate West should be good for is a brand new profile picture on Facebook. Right? Wrong. Turns out he’s good for so much more.

This man is going to flip everything Ellie thought she knew about herself upside down.

NA Romance. This novel is the second book in the Kill Devil Hills series, however it can be read as a standalone. Recommended for 18+ due to sexy scenes, explicit language, and adult themes.

My Thoughts:

Upon reading this synopsis, I knew I'd be hooked from the start of the story. And as it turns out, I was hooked--and it was impossible to put down. With Sarah Darlington, you know she's going to deliver.

Ellie is one of those awesome girls that you want in your corner for life--strong and speaks her mind. When she meets Nate West on an airplane, her life begins to change. She was already attracted to him before, but she didn't think anything of it. Then an opportunity to kiss him comes along and opens up a whole new world of possibility. She continues to run into him, and stay in touch with him, to the point where neither one of them can deny that something is happening. She isn't sure what, since it's all so new to her, but she needs to find out.

Changing Tides is a brilliant continuation to the Kill Devil Hills series. Ellie and Nate have this instant chemistry and it isn't just a fluke, or on the surface. I loved watching it develop. I also enjoyed seeing characters from the first book, and the little twist on something we learned about in that book. Keep them coming, Sarah!

My Rating:
