    2 stars Romantic SuspenseI really struggled with this one and almost DNF d it I had a hard time getting into the story, didn t care about the characters, found it overall pretty boring, and thought the plot was rather outlandish even for Romancelandia I honestly skimmed through a lot of it and mainly read the dialogue and love scenes between the H H At least the sex scenes were hot because otherwise I probably would have given up on it.This is my third Cherry Adair read and none of them have wowed me, which is unfortunate because several of my GR friends enjoy her books Oh well, to each her own, but I m keeping hope alive that I ll eventually find one that will rock for me.

    Make that 4.5 stars.The story was fantastic, fast paced and action filled It kept me on the edge of my seat not wanting to put it down The sexual tension smoldered off the pages The foreplay was very steamy but when the foreplay ended and the sex love scenes started they were chopped out Why I ask I like my books scorching LOL and was hoping the further I got into the book that we would be getting the whole experience not just the foreplay It was like this, hot and sensual foreplay then they were finally joined, a few pumps and the BAM it was the next day, WTF Hahahahaha All and all it was a very good book that I really enjoyed.

    The first Cutter Cay book was just okay for me but Riptide just blew me away I loved every moment of it and I loved Nick and Bria, a lot Their interactions, blow ups and sexual tension was off the charts.The first time Princess Bria meets Nick Cutter, he s in disguise, engaged in a dangerous deal to catch some diamond smugglers through his ship for T FLAC.Bria is on a mission, to help salvage their little kingdom her brother runs he s invested heavily in Nick s salvage mission and they may lose their monarchy Bria was not raised as royalty, her parents were killed when she was seven when terrorists took over her kingdom and she was raised in America by her bodyguard almost father.Nick Cutter is notorious for being cool, Bria pushes all his buttons and is totally his type but he is concentrating on his mission at hand and when she shows up at his ship again, he just wants to send her away and giving back her money is not possible He saw what his father s attitude did to his mother and likes being in control and hides his emotions really well.What I loved, almost everything Bria is totally kick ass, she knows how to handle a gun or even a physical attack She s independent and feisty and gorgeous She tries to push Nick which ends up in them tangling in bed, with Brie putting on the breaks since she can t control Nick Their consummation begins with a work out and a fight that ends up in steamy encounters.I loved how cool Nick couldn t stop thinking about Bria I loved seeing them together When Brie is attacked on the ship, Nick doesn t know if she was the target, he tries to take her away but danger follows.We meet another new Cutter brother as well who I loved and I hope we get his story before Logan s.A very thrilling ride with amazing characters even though Nick did have a moment of doubt at one point and we meet Max from the T FLAC books as well Loved it.

    Riptide was an exciting, fast paced read that improves upon the first book in the series, Undertow, and I really enjoyed it.Princess Gabriella Visconti unexpectedly shows up on Nick Cutter s salvage boat demanding he return the money her brother invested with Cutter Salvage When Nick refuses to refund the money, Bria sets up shop on Nick s boat hoping to persuade him to change his mind After an attack on the boat, Nick and Bria must band together to get to the bottom of the attack and find the unknown enemies Along the way, the two are forced to deal with the attraction rising between them and must decide how much they re willing to risk in their quest for answers.Nick is aptly nicknamed Mr Spock by his brothers due to him always being logical and his lack of expressed emotion He s a very practical person and doesn t want anything in his life that will distract him from the salvage business with his brothers After witnessing his father inflict havoc on their lives, Nick knew he never wanted to be like him and decided he would never fall in love or have any type of relationship He s very content with his life hunting for treasure and feels most at home when he s out on his boat on a dive.Bria s life started out as the idyllic life of a princess until she was seven years old and terrorists killed her parents forcing her to flee her small island country Bria was raised separately from her brother by her bodyguard Martin, who became like a surrogate father to her Martin taught Bria how to defend herself and she s an excellent fighter as well as having significant knowledge about firearms Bria is very intelligent and cares deeply for the family she has left as well as her homeland She does have a temper and she s constantly struggling to keep it in check.Nick and Bria clashed right from the outset Bria is used to being able to charm men into doing her bidding and is frustrated when Nick outright refuses her Nick is incredibly attracted to Bria and is annoyed with himself for wanting to give in to her demands When these two do finally come together, it s incredibly sexy and comes on the tail end of an argument, which is par for the course with these two Outside of the physical, Nick and Bria connect with each other than they ever have with anyone else and they share things about themselves they ve never told anyone before.The mystery of who is behind the attack on the boat and why were definitely interesting I had my theories about who was involved, and while I was mostly correct I enjoyed finding everything out along with the characters The author did a good job amping up the suspense as we got closer to the final showdown and I think the ending was very well done.As I was looking for a good romantic suspense read, Riptide fit the bill and I definitely recommend it if you re in the mood for the genre I will definitely be continuing with the series and look forward to getting to the next book, Vortex, soon.

    Rating 2.5 5Review There seem to be a lot of good reviews and ratings of this but I was rather disappointed in the book It bored me for the most part I was expecting a lot from it.Series Note Second book in Adair s Cutter Cay series about the Cutter brothers and their marine salvage business I don t think you have to read the first book in order to read this one Summary Princess Gabriella Bria Visconti is livid that her brother invested their country s much needed funds into a salvage dive being run by Nick Cutter If her brother, the king of her island country, can t make a bank loan payment by the end of the month, the country will revert back to Italy So she goes to Nick Cutter to beg for a refund of the money What Bria doesn t know when she boards Nick s ship, the Scorpion, is that Nick is helping out a counterterrorism group who is trying to stop the sale of blood diamonds And Bria has landed smack dab in the middle of a dangerous situation.For Nick, who always keeps his emotions buttoned up, having Bria around tests everything in him He doesn t know whether to trust the beautiful princess But that doesn t stop him from wanting her, and wanting to keep her safe And as the danger escalates, Nick must decide whether to let Bria in or keep her at arm s length away.Review This book didn t really give me anything I wanted out of it, except for a fairly decent romance I was just disappointed all the way around.I guess a large part of that is because I love romantic suspense books They are my favorite romance sub genre out there And this book was supposed to be a romantic suspense, but it doesn t exactly come across as one for the first two thirds of the book I was bored for a majority of this book There s so much that is supposed to be going on with the storylinewith the plot to catch the people selling blood diamonds, an attack on Bria her first night on the ship, the issues with Bria s brother and other threats on Bria and Nick s lives There s just a wealth of plot aspects to add tension and action to the story And yet for the first two thirds of the book, all you really get is constant interaction between Bria and Nick Them sitting on the deck, them looking at stars, them working out, them in the hot tub, them sightseeing, them arguing, them screwing Maybe in a traditional contemporary romance that would be fine But when I m reading a romantic suspense, I want plot development, not an almost sole focus on the H h It just made the first two thirds of the book very boring for me.My disappointment also lies in the lack of attention to the salvage diving aspect of this series For me, that s a fascinating story point I just think salvage diving is very interesting And in this book, it s not given much attention at all Bria looks at some finds the divers brought up, and they do one sightseeing dive, but other than that, there s not much else about the topic I was disappointed in that I wanted to read about the dives, finding the treasure and all that.And honestly, I could do without the tie in to Adair s T Flac series For me, it s just a totally unnecessary addition to the series The connection is just not needed to make the series work And because of the nature of T Flac, as a counterterrorism group, it means a terrorism aspect is added to the series That s another thing I could do without Terrorism is such a popular romantic suspense topic these days that I get a little tired of it and want to read something different I thought that s what this series would give me when it s focused on three brothers who run a dive salvage operation But in both books so far, Adair has added in a terrorism aspect and tie in to T Flac It s another thing that s just not working for me in these books But I will still read the next book I m interested enough in the characters to want to find out what happens to them.

    Rated 4.5 Doubting StarsThis one s about the Cutter brother, Nick and how he comes to meet the lovely Bria, rather Princess Gabriella.Talk about misjudging and distrusting someone, both Bria Nick do this to one another for quite some time after they meet each other He thinks she s a spoiled princess that has her every whim met and she thinks Nick is a carefree playboy that only thinks of himself Neither likes the other, AT ALL.It takes time and sabotage for them to began a rocky relationship Then later of course, they fall in love However, Nick being the cold skeptic one of the brothers, may still be faced with serious doubts about his princess.Lots of adventure, scuba diving, great banter, treasure hunting, battling the bad guys, humor, making love not war sexy times, suspense, sarcasm, romance, a big surprise and explosives I loved it and hope you will too _ HAPPY READING _

    First off thank you for the book I won it on Goodreads Overall This is really 3.5 stars I had trouble getting passed the things that I hoped are going to be fxed in the final copy this was an ARC There were some grammar mistakes and quite a few things that were repeated I m talking whole paragraphs and lots of repetitive phrasing that killed me Story wise, the action picked up at the end and I had trouble putting it down There were some twists that I was not expecting I really enjoyed the plot and the characters And I m interested to read the next to see how the Cutter family deals with the additions to it Now, to find the first in the series

    Originally posted at of adventure, treasure hunting, intrigue, double crosses and high seas romances can t go wrong with Riptide This high impact tale is told at a speed that made me breathless There is so much going on, so many nuances that taint a simple relationship with tension, mistrust and high stakes, it s amazing the hero and hero had time to fall in love.Nick and Bria, right from the very first chapter, were at odds with each other Of course one of them didn t know it at the time and when the other found out, it wasn t a warm and fuzzy moment That pretty much sums up this whole reading experience It s not cute or silly or lame It s hard edged, gritty, dramatic and suspenseful.The only people I could trust in the story were the names Nick listed plus the heroine He was never too sure about her I m pretty sure it s not because she gave him ammunition to feel that way I certainly didn t pick up on any anything she did or said to give him that impression It s because the hero reacted so icily to Bria, so in control and arrogant to an almost inhuman degree that clued me in that when he eventually did succumb to Cupid s arrow, Nick was going to go down hard And he did, and I loved every wonderful and explosive moment of it For a man whose nickname is Spock, he was volatile than Kirk or Scotty at their most stressed.Bria is quite the mixed bag of contradictions She is polished, clever, sweet and sassy and has one heck of a raging temper when she lets fly Of course the only person that inspires her to let it rip was Nick He pushed her buttons big time I was entertained at her temper tantrums because I never knew what she was going to do I giggled at her decorating, laughed out loud at her verbal profanities and got a kick out of her penchant to throw things Another aspect of her character I appreciated was her training It was nice to see a regular woman being able to defend herself and not fall to pieces in a crisis without having to credit some super secret spy agency.Oh, the super secret T FLAC agency does give a cameo performance but they were not as impressive as they ve been in the past The goobers For all of their access to fancy and sophisticated technology, they didn t discover the very intricate and well thought out evil plot when it would have done the hero and heroine the most good And, when Nick needed their help, something never seemed to go right For this adventure, Nick Cutter has to rely on his own brains, wit and alpha tendencies and ended up partnering with the last person he d ever expected to, Bria What fun.More amazing surprises were in store for me with the revelation of a secret identity It was bittersweet and the timing couldn t have been worse but Ms Adair knew what she was doing The introduction of this person means that a future book is going to be an auto buy for me There is no way that there won t be a story about this, it s awesome.Another thing I liked was the dialogue I loved seeing Nick s paranoia rationalized I enjoyed Bria s determination and internal pep talks to out ice Nick s Spock demeanor and fire him up There is not one scene that didn t work for me, not one chapter that was slow or weak Everything that happens does so for a reason and the result is a masterful bit of mystery, treachery and grand storytelling.Riptide is a pulse pounding read that thoroughly entertains and provides a stunning and satisfying happily ever after As soon as Bria steps foot aboard Nick s boat, the Scorpion, the action never stops Readers will be hard pressed to put down the book Every chapter has a hook that won t let go, compiled with revelations and suspicions that can keep a reader wide eyed and riveted This is the kind of story that can make time cease to exist The adventure is that good The romance is that wild and I had a grand time discovering the truth Pick up a copy and see for yourself.
