Book Review – Love at High Tide by Christi Barth

Love

 

Synopsis

Darcy Trent is lucky Cooper Hudson is on hand to sweep her off her feet—literally—when she nearly drowns while swimming in the ocean. But life-saving aside, Mr. Perfect’s timing stinks: Darcy’s career is about to take her to the complete opposite side of the Atlantic. Still, a little summer loving with the tall, blond and sexy former cop is far too tempting to pass up.

When his plans to enter the Secret Service went south thanks to a bum knee, Coop retreated to the family beach house to mull his future. Romance is the last thing on his mind, until he fishes a curvy brunette out of the sea. Now, spending time in Darcy’s arms seems like the ideal distraction, even if it is just for a week.

But with Darcy’s departure date fast approaching and their careers on the line, can they realize in time that their beach fling might become the real thing?

A chance meeting occurs when Coop saves Darcy from drowning in the ocean has both of them interested in the other even if it’s just a short summer fling. Coop can’t stop thinking about the hot curvy brunette he saved out of the ocean. Darcy is totally up for a fling with a hot, blonde former cop. What happens when the week is up? What do Darcy and Coop decide about their careers? How hard will it be to end this summer fling? Or is it more than a fling? 
 
I have to be honest, I read 30% of the book and almost didn’t want to continue. I gave myself a few days then picked it up again. But I’m glad I did stick with it because it was a cute, light, sweet summer romance type of book. I really loved hot and sexy Coop. I thought him and Darcy were a good match. I felt like the book started out slow then picked up and was actually great ( I loved the sex scenes!) but then it ended. I liked the ending don’t get me wrong. I just thought something was missing from it. It probably was because it was rather short story. I would of liked a few more scenes of Darcy and Coop together so I could feel their connection; make it stronger for me personally. I did like the book and loved the characters. It’s a great read especially with a hot tanned former cop running around the beach in shorts .. Very good eye candy plus he is a sweet great guy. Read the book to find out about Coop.
