Genre: Contemporary Romance, Beach Read

Book Blurb:

Physical therapist and champion surfer, Nikki Young hasn’t ventured into the ocean since almost drowning a year ago. Nikki flies to Hawaii to compete in a video contest showcasing the scenic shores, and she hopes her fear won't ruin her chances. She needs the prize money to fulfill her dream of opening a therapy office. Surfboard designer, Julian Vaughn just wants to get back to work and avoid romantic complications. However, a surfing injury and months of unsuccessful therapy prevent him from shaping boards. And the women? Well, he wants to avoid all of them after his long-time girlfriend shredded his heart. Winning the contest and healing Julian’s broken pieces proves to be as much of a struggle as getting back on her surfboard and braving the waves of the turbulent sea.

My Review:

Two shredded hearts overcome everything to rediscover their love of surfing and each other. A romance perfect for summer, Surf & Tour will win your heart. Ellis Summers has written a touching story about overcoming fear, falling in love, and taking chances. The characters are easy to connect with while the descriptive narration takes the reader inside the surfing world. The romance is unexpected and will move you. So, grab your favorite beach chair and see why I loved this book.

Let’s start with the characters. I connected with Nikki right away. Her fear is realistic and relatable. Her inner strength, though, is what I love most. When faced with her fear…well, I won’t spoil it for you. Needless to say, the ending is emotional. Julian is also a character worth cheering for. He’s an injured soul and one I also connected with.

The romance is expertly executed with a slow-burn vibe. This author normally writes romantic suspense. This is her first contemporary romance and I enjoyed it immensely. I especially like the interplay between Nikki and Julian. Their chemistry is off the charts.

If you’re looking for a beach read/summer romance, you’ll love Surf & Tour. If you’re a part of the surfing community, this book is for you.

My Rating: 5 stars
