Book Title: September’s Tide
Author: KC Wells
Publisher: Island Tales Press
David Hannon hasn’t written a word of his latest detective thriller since he threw out his lover Clark five months ago after he caught Clark cheating on him. So when his agent informs him that he’s about to leave New York to take a little trip to an island off the south coast of England, David is torn. It could be just what he needs—or the vacation from hell. Once he arrives there, David quickly falls in love with the beautiful, tranquil Steephill Cove. The quiet little bay has everything David needs, including the opportunity to get laid regularly, in the gorgeous shape of Taylor Monroe, who runs a water sports equipment hire business. David’s a happy man. He always writes better when there is a plentiful supply of good sex.
When Taylor first meets the Lighthouse’s newest occupant, he can almost hear the click. David is just what Taylor needs—an older, sexy guy who is willing to share his bed, no strings, no promises. At least, that was the plan. As the two men spend more time together, Taylor finds himself growing to like the confident writer more and more. Taylor’s family like him. Taylor’s friends like him. And then there comes the moment when Taylor realizes that maybe it’s no longer a matter of liking David, but something a whole lot stronger.
Unfortunately, his epiphany occurs a little too late, when a visitor to the bay forces Taylor to accept that David might be spoken for. In any case, David is leaving at the end of September—and it looks like he’ll be taking Taylor’s heart with him…
What type of book is it?
September’s Tide is a light, feel good story about finding love regardless if you are ready for it and whether or not you are looking for it!!!
What is it about?
Despite being a best-selling author David is in a funk. The last few months have not gone particularly well… at all. He catches his boyfriend cheating, immediately dumps him and kicks him out and as a result he tumbles head first into a HUGE depression that kills his muse crippling his ability to finish his latest novel
Enter Juliet, his friend, publicist and savior, thrusting him kicking and protesting on a trip across to the other side of the world to the Isle of Wight. Not giving David the opportunity to decline she sends him off to a place where few people live, where phone and Internet service is intermittent at best and where he will remain for a month. Alone. To breathe, write and rediscover himself, his muse and what he wants for his future.
Taylor is the opposite of David – young, free-spirited and unencumbered by life’s constant disappointments. He runs a seasonal business and lives rent free in a house owned by his parents. This leaves him with few responsibilities tying him down and allows him a lot of free time to surf and travel all over the world.
Though so very different and age-wise miles apart they are exactly what the other needs. Through confusion, misunderstandings and unexpected visitors they find a way to learn, grow and love.
The best bit was…
Taylor’s friends are the highlight of the whole story. They are the kind of friends everyone needs and few of us are lucky to know.
While on the whole I really enjoyed this there are a few things that I wish had been done a bit differently. I wish we could have had a few scenes with Sam and Mark who were the main characters in Waiting for a Prince (the first book in this series). Also, I found Clark to be a little too blatant in his character. There was nothing subtle about him. Those two points aside I really enjoyed this book a lot.
Who would you recommend this for?
I would recommend this book to all fans of K.C Wells. Young and old alike!!! A light read that will keep you interested from start to end.
Have you read any other books by this author?
I love K.C Wells and have read all her works and I will definitely call myself a fan.
