Genevieve Tierney moves to Lake Tahoe after college, determined to go it alone after being betrayed by her boyfriend. Working at a casino and avoiding cheating jerks seems like a good plan, until she meets the one guy tempting enough to drag her back down.
Lewis Sallee is six and a half feet of perfectly sculpted mountain man who threatens her play-it-safe approach and awakens a sex drive she never knew she had. Although Lewis is in a complicated relationship with one of the most beautiful women Gen has ever seen, she can’t seem to control her attraction to him.
To boost her confidence, Gen steps out of her comfort zone and signs up for the Alpine Mudder, a gritty endurance race. But as she prepares for the biggest physical challenge of her life, her emotional strength is pushed to its limits after she accepts Lewis’s help in training. He tests her willpower and has her fighting her body’s response to him—with her mind and heart not far behind
First thoughts after…
Wow, I'm ready for the next…
How distracted did I get?
Blue Crush is an addictive romance with a touch of suspense at times. Gen is definitely a different kind of leading lady. She had me sucked into her life and on edge and at times cheering for her. Her character is definitely a character that grew through the story and it was enjoyable as she built her strength. Lewis…he's definitely a hottie mctottie but at times I wanted to scream at him. He's a sweet guy and he's loyal. Mira, I wanted to jump in my kindle and pop her on the head! She's a mean girl, at least to Gen. I can't stand mean girls. Gen and Lewis's romance built slowly and I loved the dance back and forth. The fact that nothing was rushed in the story was refreshing.
I give Blue Crush…
