I'm so glad to finally be able to review Tidal. I have A LOT of love for Emily Snow's work. She has not disappointed me yet and I can't wait to see what the future brings for her writing and my reading.
Tidal is just....ahhhhmazzzzing. It is raw, yet inviting. I was sucked in by the story and didn't want to be spit out. You will fall in love with Willow and Cooper from the start. I think a spin off could be made for Cooper's friends or maybe even willow's bodyguard. I loved all of the characters, they all played important roles in the book and the roles of the characters didn't feel forced, it was very natural.
Willow is fresh out of rehab.
I had hated it, but as of an hour ago, my six months were up. Freedom had never felt so good. This time, I wouldn’t let it go so easily. This time, I’d be smart enough to limit myself and dull my senses just enough to forget, but not to the point of obliterating my reality.
She plans on staying out.
I quickly shook that thought out of my head, ashamed of myself. No, this time—this time I would be different.
I sure as hell would never go back to rehab.
Now all she has to do is convince herself and everyone that knows her that she has changed.
She is tired of being in the spotlight but an empty pocket will make you do things you don't want to do. She knows accepting the leading role in the movie Tidal will earn her some quick cash. What she doesn't know is accepting the role is what will change her life forever.
Willow has been teamed up with Cooper to help train for her surfing part in the movie. How will she ever be able to concentrate on training after having thoughts like this: The guy beside him wore a faded lime green Hollister T shirt- that hugged his biceps and chest- that lean muscular look I'd always lost my breath over.
“I’m Cooper Taylor. I’m a Scorpio. I enjoy women, long walks on the beach, and my roommate says I use girly shampoo. Oh, and I generally hate anyone in the film industry because they’re total assholes. Guess you could say I’m your Pai Mei.”
"Willo Avery. Actress, Cancer, and according to my team, on my last leg before porn".
As Williow and Cooper relationship changes in more ways than one she has to keep reminding herself:
He is an ass. He is your coach. Slow the fuck down, dumbass, before you get in trouble again.
Willow has demons in her past that can never resurface again. She knows getting involved with Cooper will only make them appear, but it's like she can't control herself. She has no control at all when it comes to Cooper and he has no control when it comes to her.
Willow and Cooper will have to learn how to work with each other and confront the demons they face together, if they can't they will never make it.
