Blog Tour Review: Making Waves by Ophelia London

TitleMaking Waves: A Perfect Kisses Novella (Perfect Kisses #3.5) by Ophelia London
Age group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Entangled Bliss
Release Date: June 16, 2014

She’s in over her head and he’s in hot water…
Visiting her friends Ellie and Charlie in Hawaii was supposed to be a much-needed vacation for journalist Justine Simms. But when she learns the notoriously reclusive pro-surfer Chase Ryder is coming out of retirement for a competition, she knows she’s found the perfect exclusive to save her career. Of course, then she learns he’s the gorgeous, secretly nerdy guy who broke her heart a year ago.

Will Davenport—aka Chase Ryder—doesn't do interviews. He keeps his real name out of the papers and doesn’t mix his public life with his private. That is, until the still-heartbroken Justine blackmails him into giving her an exclusive. Seeing Justine, stunningly beautiful as ever, brings back all the feelings he had before. But despite their smoldering attraction, nothing has changed since he had to leave her the first time.

 Making Waves by Ophelia London is another fantastic read from her Perfect Kisses Series. This is a novella about Justine Simms as she ventures to Hawaii and finds a piece of her past she thought was long over – the one that broke her heart, Will Davenport. This novella reads like a standalone, but this series is so enjoyable you’ll want to get your hands on every one of the books.

Will Davenport leads a double life. On the one side, he’s Will – a brilliant introvert with a nerdy side. His other alias is reclusive professional surfer Chase Ryder – a risk taker who thrives in the ocean and has women swooning hard over him. I absolutely loved this book boyfriend. He’s tender and genuine but loves fiercely. Will isn’t interested in the fame, he only wants to pursue his passion for surfing and isn’t willing to risk his privacy just to see his real name plastered across the internet. I loved how humble he was.

This read was the perfect fix for anyone in a book slump. Making Waves has the perfect balance of romance, witty banter, and attention holding drama. I devoured this novella in just a few hours. While I am completely satisfied with Justine and Will’s story, I can’t help but be greedy and want more. Heck, I just want more from this series! Each story is unique yet familiar and Ophelia London never disappoints.

 Get your hands on Making Waves by Ophelia London today. It’s the perfect summer read that will sweep you away on a mini-vacation to Hawaii without even leaving your house.
