Princess Bria Visconti has no idea why her brother would lend money to a reckless scavenger like Nick Cutter. He's simply too arrogant, and too handsome, for his own good. But he can't charm his way out of this one. The money her brother invested in Nick's latest treasure hunt is the key to her country's future, and Bria plans to make Nick pay up - even if it means climbing aboard his boat and making his life a living hell.


Nick thinks Bria must be deluded if she thinks he's going to put his treasure hunt on hold for her - princess or not. But when a series of attacks puts his entire crew in grave danger, Nick begins to see Bria in a new light. The princess may be out of her elements, but her strength and courage run fathoms deep. Even when their darkest secrets rise to the surface - and their deadliest enemies come after them...

Riptide is my second read in the Cutter Cay series.  I am reading the series in the lead up to the fourth book being released in March. The genre is romantic suspense which is one of my favorites. I did enjoy the mystery and action in Riptide.  Nick Cutter was interesting in his ability to read vocal accents and his government work.

However, the billionaire guy with the gal down on her luck is a trope I hate. Nick seemed to think he should have sex with Bria because he’s attracted to her physically even though he sees her as a spoiled princess without skills. Bria is an actual princess who has been in exile. She is somewhat used to having her way but she has developed some real skill and is making her own way in the world. Overall,  it’s not too realistic.

A fun and sexy read, despite my issues. The fascinating part is Jonah. It’s too much of a spoiler to say who he is, but I can’t wait to learn more about him!

Undertow by Cherry Adair

      Read It, Track It is a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.   I got this library book to decide if I wanted to read and review the upcoming fourth book in the Cutter Cay series. I’ve always wanted to read this author as my impression was it would be romantic suspense. For various reasons, I decided to do it so you will be seeing the next two books in these short reviews,  before the new one. It was fairly enjoyable to read. There are hot guys, treasure on the seas, and a lovely ocean paradise. There is mystery, action and adventure as the brothers go salvage treasure hunting on the ocean. The plots and facts involved are either hopelessly cliche or over-the-top drama. The hot guys are sort of man whores and can have any woman they want. They […]

Joint Review: Brown-Eyed Girl by Lisa Kleypas

       Almost everyone who’s read this series wanted Joe’s story. It’s not necessarily because of what we knew about him, but the last story ended with him barely surviving the boat accident. We just needed to know…more. He was a blank page so I didn’t have any expectations. Avery Crosslin meets Joe Travis at one of her weddings she’s managing, mistaking him for one of the photographer’s minions. Something about the brown-eyed redhead appeals to Joe and so begins his pursuit. She’s not interested, having barely survived her last relationship but…he’s a Travis so he doesn’t go away easily. This story is told from Avery’s point of view, but I still got a clear picture of Joe and how he fit into his family. She’s an interesting woman with a challenging background who’s created her own unique family. I loved this woman and Joe saw the same things I […]

What dead would Darynda Jones like to have dinner with?

What dead would Darynda Jones like to have dinner with?

DINNER WITH THE DEAD   Of course, my top picks for a dinner party with those who have preceded us into the afterlife would consist exclusively of writers. While this list is nowhere near exhaustive, this dinner would be a dream come true.   AYN RAND The first book I read by Ms. Rand was a dystopian called Anthem, and it just blew me away. I’d never read anything like it. Been rather obsessed by her ever since.  Besides being a novelist, Ayn was a philosopher, a playwright, and a screenwriter, and she developed her own philosophical vision and movement called Objectivism. I’d invite her to dinner to ask her about her extraordinary life, her migration from Russia to the US in the 1920s, and her many philosophies that made up the strong, independent fiber of her being.   RAY BRADBURY I think Ray Bradbury was the first writer I […]

About a Dog…Irresistible Force by D. D. Ayres

I’m not sure who I liked more…James or his K-9 partner, Bogart. No matter as they both kept me in the story. A bit of background It starts right off at full speed when Officer James Cannon tracks his “stolen” partner near an isolated cabin in the woods of North Carolina. Bogart’s with Shay Appleton and the showdown between the three isn’t pretty. Once they figure out each other’s situation, James gets Bogart back but not before he realizes that Shay seemed to need him for more than companionship. His instincts have him checking on her before returning home and it was just in time. What works, what doesn’t The suspense level is high as there are two ex’s behaving VERY badly. James is truly an alpha male and tries to help Shay but she’s a woman who’s prefers to handle herself. While admirable it got in the way of […]

Take a Look into Cookie Kowalski’s Journal

THIS JOURNAL BELONGS TO COOKIE KOWALSKI Dear Journal, I know it’s been several years since I wrote, but I now know things I never dreamed were possible. Never in a million years. And I felt I should write them down so I never forget. Alzheimer is a real possibility. And today I learned not to take my time on earth for granted. Or my daughter, for that matter. Even though I thought divorce was the most painful thing I’d ever go through, I now realize that my life hadn’t really begun until after. It all started when I moved into a new apartment building right after the papers were signed almost three years ago. I met a young woman that day who would change my life forever. Things have been going at the speed of light since. One thing you should know about Charley before I go further is the […]

Hashtag Holy Cliffhanger! Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones

Wow Charley is really getting on the social media band wagon. There was so many hashtag moments and each was funny. But if I had to pick one of Charley’s hashtags to sum up Sixth Grave on the Edge it would be #HOLYSHIT. Why a 3.5 rating vs an 4 Rating I want to know Mr. Wong’s story. He’s been around since First Grave and we still don’t know much about him. Jones gives us a little tease about him in Sixth Grave but I’m ready to know who and/or what he is. I think he’s a spy for someone but I could be wrong. Come on Wong spill already. Charley needs to grow up. I love her snark and humor but by book 6 she hasn’t grown enough IMO. Charley still hasn’t answered Reyes’ question from the end of Fifth Grave. Come on, it’s a Yes or No question […]

Audio Review: Fifth Grave Past the Light by Darynda Jones

Ok, it really is the narration that keeps me coming back. In my review for Fourth Grave I started my review off like this… I have to start off with saying how much I love the narration of this series. After listening to all the other books in the series I can’t bring myself to read the new releases even when I have a chance at an ARC. Lorelei King just brings Charley to life in such a great way that I now have her voice in my head and cannot enjoy reading the books. My friend received an ARC and let me borrow it. I thought I would try reading it to save an audio credit. And for a second time I could not get past the 2nd chapter. So I just bought the audio and I loved every minute of it. So what have I learn? Skip the […]
