SHE'S SWEPT INTO TREACHEROUS WATERS
Princess Bria Visconti has no idea why her brother would lend money to a reckless scavenger like Nick Cutter. He's simply too arrogant, and too handsome, for his own good. But he can't charm his way out of this one. The money her brother invested in Nick's latest treasure hunt is the key to her country's future, and Bria plans to make Nick pay up - even if it means climbing aboard his boat and making his life a living hell.
HE FIGHTS THE RELENTLESS PULL
Nick thinks Bria must be deluded if she thinks he's going to put his treasure hunt on hold for her - princess or not. But when a series of attacks puts his entire crew in grave danger, Nick begins to see Bria in a new light. The princess may be out of her elements, but her strength and courage run fathoms deep. Even when their darkest secrets rise to the surface - and their deadliest enemies come after them...
Read It, Track It is a way to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.
Riptide is my second read in the Cutter Cay series. I am reading the series in the lead up to the fourth book being released in March. The genre is romantic suspense which is one of my favorites. I did enjoy the mystery and action in Riptide. Nick Cutter was interesting in his ability to read vocal accents and his government work.
However, the billionaire guy with the gal down on her luck is a trope I hate. Nick seemed to think he should have sex with Bria because he’s attracted to her physically even though he sees her as a spoiled princess without skills. Bria is an actual princess who has been in exile. She is somewhat used to having her way but she has developed some real skill and is making her own way in the world. Overall, it’s not too realistic.
A fun and sexy read, despite my issues. The fascinating part is Jonah. It’s too much of a spoiler to say who he is, but I can’t wait to learn more about him!
