Review: Tide's Ebb by Alexandra Brenton

Tide's Ebb by Alexandra Brenton

Sassy Manhattan lawyer Marianna Holt has the perfect life and the ideal fiancé. But a shocking bedroom revelation shatters her limits, her confidence, and her world. When her law firm sends her out of New York for the first time, Marianna feels lost at sea.

Life-long Rhode Islander Captain Lawrence doesn’t need high-maintenance city women or a last name. When the gruff sea captain saves Marianna from drowning, he knows he’s in over his head. The head-strong odd couple shares only two things: a deep dislike of each other, and an undeniable attraction. Sparks fly, but will they catch fire at sea?

My Thoughts:
This is satire. If you read this thinking it is going to be a romance, you are going to be disappointed. This is a parody of a romance, poking fun at romance novels and cliches, lawyers, and other things. The main character, Marianna is quite selfish and shallow and spends an inordinate amount of time paying attention to commas and quotation marks as a lawer. This is what tipped me off that that this wasn't a typical romance. There is quite a bit of crude, off-color humor. This book won't appeal to everyone, but if you can appreciate the humor, give it a shot. It is very well written and quite funny.

My Rating: ****
Steam Factor: !!!!

*Notes: Crude language and situations. Not for the easily offended.
