Haley's future has been waiting on the west coast for the past year, but she isn't the only new face in Crescent Cove this summer. When Colby Taylor's parents locate him and interrupt his surf competition, the surf star spirals out of control, dragging Drenaline Surf's reputation through the mud and into the ground with him.

With Colby's secrets plastered across surf magazines and tabloid headlines, Haley takes on the job of playing damage control for Drenaline Surf - which isn't easy when Colby breaks everything he touches, Topher breaks the law, and Miles breaks his leg.

Instead of chasing dreams of forever, Haley spends her summer chasing the unraveling careers of the hottest new faces in the surf world, and she's about to learn what happens when forever doesn't last.

My Review:

I’m going back to Crescent Cove…. I couldn’t wait to hang with these guys again.

Haley is back in Crescent cove after a year away this time she is planning to stay a lot long but soon she needs to do a bit of damage control. It seems Colby Taylor’s parents have found him and things are about to change. Chasing forever down just hit some Rough Waters (see what I did) 🙂

Once again Nikki has written a group of characters that I really would love to hang with in real life. Seeing the old and meet some new it was a fun hanging with everyone again. Haley is still dating Vin but I will be honest as much as I loved him in the first book I was not a fan of him in this one. I thought he was kind of a douche and as the story progressed I thought Haley deserved a lot better. I loved her relationship with the guys but especially Topher and AJ.

The story was fun, sometime I felt it kind of lost it’s way once in a while but overall this was a great read and I enjoyed every minute of it. I loved that it didn’t go the way I had originally expected it to go. A lot changes with all the characters in this book and I felt they really developed a lot more and you get to see a different side of them and a lot of growing up also.

This was a really strong read and believe that this series need to be more popular than it is. Overall I gave Rough Waters 4/5 Stars, great characters and a really great story. I adore this series and after what happens at the end I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my review

Hope you have a great day and Happy Reading!

    • I really think not enough people know about this series and it needs to be read by more people. If you do get a chance to read them, let me know what you think. I really think she writes great characters 🙂

  1. “Chasing forever down just hit some Rough Waters” <— LMAO! She's the author that had the title in her books right? Because is she is, that's even cuter 😉

    I'm glad you liked it and I love seeing my characters grow and change like that. Surprises are always a plus! Great review Michelle!
