Turbulent Waters by Melody Anne
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Coast Guard pilot Nick Armstrong savors the taste of danger. But after his helicopter crashes into the ocean during a mission, shattering his knee, he encounters a whole different type of thrill when he meets his new physical therapist. Maybe being grounded isn’t so bad after all.
Smart, sexy, and deeply guarded, Chloe Reynolds is the type of woman who drives Nick crazy for all the right reasons. But as she tries to help him heal, Chloe struggles to keep her heart—and secrets—safe.
For years, she has been told that Nick is responsible for her brother’s death, a “fact” that she slowly learns may not contain the entire truth.
But can Chloe’s growing feelings for Nick, and their undeniable chemistry, really overcome a years-long family feud? Or will the past ultimately destroy the future they both desperately want?
This book was like watching a train crash and not being able to stop it...I just hated it!! It had DNF written all over it. Written on the front, back, all around, top, bottom and in-between the pages....Like for real. I hate saying that! I really hate saying anything bad about any book because I think you can usually find at least a couple redeeming qualities in any book if you try hard enough. I'm usually so lenient when it comes to my stars because I KNOW the work it takes to put into a book but THIS book set my teeth on edge!
Can I just say that I have never in my almost 40 years - Yes 40 years...never wanted to nag slap a hero and I don't think I would call Nick a hero, by the way!! Side note - I think he's a man-child who doesn't listen to ANYTHING! I usually love Melody Anne's books but Nick, he had me wanting to bat for the other team! Seriously, I almost took up a whole new genre of books after reading about him and his needs, his wants and how he wanted it. Here's a hint for all the guys out there: If you want a woman and think being cocky about it is the way to go about it, go ahead but you're gonna come across as a dick and douche canoe which is what this guy was. If some dude showed up in my room buck naked and demanded I tell him "yes" I'd attach the prongs of a stun gun to his naked hiney (or something else) and light him up. Try it and see if I'm kidding! Chloe should have diagnosed him with Narcissistic Personality Disorder and got the heck out of dodge, thrown him some meds from a safe distance away and said buh-bye! Now, maybe I'm being old and harsh but maybe I'm being smart in a world filled with men who think they can treat women any way they want because of the Fifty Shades of Grey craze and No I haven't seen it and I'm not going to. So while I usually love Melody, I didn't love this book and I can't recommend it to women who I respect.
I was given a copy of this ARC from the publisher on Netgalley for a honest review. All of the above comments are my express opinions and no one else's
