Release blitz - Against The Tide By Nikki Groom


Title: Against the Tide
Author: Nikki Groom
Release Date: April 13, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance

I was happy until I met him.
I was content until I met her.

That's a lie. I was lonely.
That's a lie. I was incomplete.

He was nothing but a handsome distraction.
She was nothing but a pretty pastime.

That's untrue. He changed my life.
That's untrue. She altered my world.

I blame him.
I blame her.

I blame myself. He wasn't to know.
I blame myself. It wasn't her fault.

I don't want to need him.
I hate that I want her.

There's no easy solution.
There's no going back.

My Review

Nikki Groom became one of my favourite authors with Holding Aces and High Stakes. So when I was offered the chance to review Against The Tide I jumped at the chance. 

This book intrigued me from the blurb, it represents our current culture I wanted to see how it would be portrayed. And it didn't disappoint. This book is a story of how a chance encounter can alter the course of lives. And this couldn't be more true for Finn and Megan. 

This was a captivating, emotionally gripping book. It is written so flawlessly. If you are looking for something different from the normal genre of book you usually read this one is for you. 

I give this 5/5 stars

“Is Damien Brooks the guy you were at the club with, the night we …”
“The night we fucked in the alley?” she answers brazenly.
“You’re not very lady like.”
“I never claimed to be a lady.”
I lean forward in to the space between us, she pulls back a little until her shoulder hits the door trim. “Is Damien Brooks the guy you were at the club with the night we fucked in the alley?” I say in a low, soft voice. My eyes linger on her lips as her mouth drops open slightly, and the next breath she takes shudders through her chest.
“Yes. What does that matter?”
“Was he selling drugs there that night?”
“I …I don’t know what he …I don’t even know what I’m talking to you for.” She unbuckles her belt and starts tugging on the door handle. “Let me out. I must be fucking insane. You’re a psycho, a fucking lunatic, let me out of this fucking car before I kick the fuck out of your window with my heels.” She demands.
“Go ahead. Not my car.” I laugh, sitting back in amusement to watch the show.
“Should have known that too. Did you steal it? Of course you stole it, you just take what you want don’t you? You wanted me that night, and you took me. You just took me again, against my will, from outside my home.” She utters, “So what will you take next? What is it that you want from Damien, from me? I don’t have any money, I don’t have any drugs−”

I silence her hysterics by grabbing the back of her head roughly and crashing my lips against hers. There’s something about her that shoots a charge through my body, it’s against my better judgment but the frustration I have around my feelings toward her fuels the passion.
