Ebook - Waves of Love Review

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Image and blurb source Tomoson.com

I'm back with another book review today! I'm trying to get back on track with this blog, I swear :P

Can love overcome an age difference of more than 10 years?
A contemporary romance unlike any other!
At thirty-two, Sage Drake has the world by the tail. She owns her own bookstore, in sunny Florida, and loves her work so much she lives in the apartment above the store. Then one day a young surfer strolls in, cadging free coffee and donuts from her little caf?.
His name is Derek Chambers, and he’s no regular surfer: he’s an author of a series of surfing travelogues, eager to do a book-signing or two at Sage’s store. She goes him one better by offering to host a series of writing workshops, with Derek as the star.
In return, Derek offers to teach Sage ”" who’s never learned ”" how to surf.
Will the two find love in the waves?

Waves of Love is an extremely short, quick read. I'd suggest some may read it in maybe an hour. For me, this book was just okay - while it told a story, it felt like there was no real substance to it. I'd say the writing style was good, as this story did hold my interest and provoke some introspective thinking, it just was lacking depth. Maybe because it is so short it just wasn't a personal favorite of mine. I don't typically read romance novels, so that is another consideration. There is some fairly explicit sex in this story, so I would recommend it for adults.

Waves of Love is $2.99 on Amazon - at that price, I myself wouldn't buy it. There are much better, longer books available for free.
