{Book Review} Waves of Romance

When I read and reviewed the first book Waves of love, I was really taken in by how the author introduced the book and how much love and chemistry you got from the main characters Sage and Derek. Sage, a 32 year old book bookstore owner who had never left her hometown and Derek, a 22 year old hot off the cover self-taught surfer boy who had never been in love. Waves of love was definitely my kind of book so I was very excited when I was contacted to review the second book Waves of Romance.

Most happy ending love/romance books never really taken you into the ever after period, it just leaves you in the ‘all is well’ place. When I started reading Waves of Romance I must say I was a little bit disappointed because it felt like the author was trying to explain waves of love first just in case the reader had not read it before starting to read waves of romance. I love books with romance, trials and tribulations, make-out sections and all but I felt this book really had too much make-out sections for a romance book at least thats the genre I am putting it in. I am never one to complain about make-out sessions in books so if I am then it was too much for my taste. 


I started to love the book when a new character was introduced who started to stir up trouble between Sage and Derek, which led Sage to break it off with Derek before she got hurt. I found myself hurt because call me crazy or not but I was hoping that when Sage and Derek broke up he would hold out a little longer and not jump straight into bed with the new character Colby but he did and I know sage had already broken up with him but it took Derek less than a week to jump into the sack with another girl. I was actually really hoping they would realise that breaking up was a mistake and would get back together without either doing something silly but that was not the case.

When Sage found out she did what only a mature in mind woman would do, pretend it didn’t affect her and carry on. Then forgave him after he came back apologising and begging, though not instantly she did forgive him and forgave Colby who had been working for Sage prior to her sleeping with Derek. Sage showed so much more maturity than I carry I guess but I did love how the author explained the emotions and Sage’s decision.

Author’s Description:

Can love survive a third wheel?

A contemporary romance unlike any other!

Sage Drake is living the good life in sunny Seaside Heights, Florida. Once an avowed workaholic, her sexy new lover ”” surfer, world traveler and author Derek Chambers ”” has awakened in her not just a love for the ocean, and surfing, but for life in general.
But when her trusted assistant manager departs for college a few months early, Sage is forced to choose between managing her bookstore, Sequels, or enjoying the good life with Derek. A solution comes in the form of Colby Weathers, a worthy replacement for her old assistant manager”… if only she wasn’t so beautiful.
Sage isn’t the only one to notice”…
Would Derek succumb to this younger girl?
Would Sage’s worst fears become real?
It is definitely a worthwhile read kind of book and I definitely would recommend reading it.
What would you do if you were in Sage’s position?
would you forgive easily and move on?

  • This looks like an interesting book. i used to read lots of romance novels back when I was younger.

  • I love fiction books with some romance. It help me unwind and spice up things with my significant other

  • I need more romance, fo sho! I've been reading all of Nora Robert's books lately, but this sounds steamy 😀 I should give it a try

  • This sounds like a book I would love to read indeed but I don't like when you are left hanging. Still sounds like a interesting read. Thanks for sharing.

  • That sounds like a wonderful read, although I haven't really read any fiction work recently. I'm currently (and slowly) reading #GirlBoss whenever I have pockets of free time. Thanks for sharing 🙂 Just might try a romance novel soon! 🙂

  • Just in time for summer beach time! Thanks for sharing. I'm headed to the bookstore today, and I'll keep my eyes open for these two books.

  • Sounds ike a terrific summer beach read. Adding it my list right now, thanks for the review.

  • this looks like a great read! i need to get back into reading eventually!!

    Sandy a la Mode

  • Ugh, that would make me mad too jumping in the sack with another girl. I guess good books have lots of controversy right? They gotta make ha turn the page.

  • One week is a pretty short amount of time to jump into a new relationship. This sounds like a fun read though, if you know what you're getting into.

  • This book sounds great!! I'm trying to get a list of good reads together for summer poolside reading and this might just make that list :):)

  • I do love romance novels! I always have a few books downloaded on my kindle and ready to read. This one sounds like one I might have to look into. I think that you should forgive and move on, but I can't say that would be easy.

  • This really sounds like a great book to read. It's been awhile since I last read a romance novel and this one sounds wonderful.

  • super you are back to reading books. a romance novel sounds perfect for a summer list

  • I have never heard of this book or author before!! This sounds like a great read!

  • Thanks, you should check it out.

  • Hope you get to read this one

  • Yes Fiona you're missing out.
    OMG the days of IMVU my sister used to love that site.

  • Hahahaha, it got way too much but I did enjoy it regardless.

  • haha that's too funny that it had too much making out for you. Yeah.. I think I enjoy a book to build up a lot of sexual tension.. but once it gets to constant making out.. it's not as fun.. I really love the push and pull of emotions before that. 😛

  • I've never read a romance novel in my life, am I missing out? 🙂 I love the main characters name though, Sage was my avatar name on IMVU back in the day! The memories :')

  • Great post and am always interesting in looking forward to that next read!

  • I love Romance novels too

  • Thanks hun, it was an ok read.

  • Great to hear that you've got back into reading again. This sounds like a lovely read. 🙂

  • Sounds like such a great read, I love romance! 😀
