Title:  Changing Tides (Kill Devil Hills #2) 
Author:  Sarah Darlington
Genre: New Adult Romance
Publication Date:  March 16th 2015

Plot:  "Nate West. Hollywood bad-boy. Television megastar. Womanizer. Basically everything I hate about the male species rolled into one handsome package. And yet…I want him."

Ellie Turner is a lesbian. She has tattoos, short hair, and a ‘don’t-mess-with-me-attitude.’ She knows who she is, loves who she is, and couldn’t care less what the rest of the world thinks of her. And since she has the most kick-ass best friend on the planet, Noah Clark, even when family drama gets in the way, nothing can offset her happy-go-lucky demeanor.

Until television star Nate West comes along. All thick muscle and alpha-male testosterone. When Ellie meets him on an airplane the only thing Nate West should be good for is a brand new profile picture on Facebook. Right? Wrong. Turns out he’s good for so much more.

This man is going to flip everything Ellie thought she knew about herself upside down.

NA Romance. This novel is the second book in the Kill Devil Hills series, however it can be read as a standalone. Recommended for 18+ due to sexy scenes, explicit language, and adult themes.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ! ☆

Changing the Tides completely baffled me. But in a good way. ♥

A lesbian and a Hollywood badboy? How the heck is this dynamic going to work out!

Pretty interesting duo, Sarah! I love it!

The second book in its series, Changing the Tides was a blind read for me. I did not know how Nate, as charming and attractive as he is, was going to win over a gal like Ellie who was a proud homosexual. It was just intriguing and suspenseful to see how it all worked out.

I liked their relationship. They meet on a flight and from the get go there’s that spark that neither can seem to shake off.

But, their romance doesn’t just take off from there. Both Ellie and Nate still have a lot to work out personally and professionally wise, and it’s really a battle of wills and succumbing to choices and figuring out what you want out of life and your future.

Thank god there isn’t any typical clichés that you see in Hollywood famous love novels, as it made my reading experience much more enjoyable and satisfying, and not causing me to roll my eyes and want to strange someone.

#All in all…A witty, steamy, and enjoyable installment to the Kill Devil Hills series! Can’t wait to see what’s in store in it and to see old and new reoccurring characters!!

My Rating:

She was exactly what I needed. For far too long I’d felt numb inside—like I’d been stuck in quicksand up the knees. Since my breakup with Kelly, I’d been looking for something that could make me feel better again. Maybe this girl could be the temporary fix I needed. It was worth a shot. Besides, I had nothing better going on at the moment.
Quick as ever, I discarded my hat and sunglasses onto the floor. “Hey,” I said before she could walk past me. So she hadn’t been about to ask for my autograph or to take a selfie with me? What? “Um, hey,” I said again, a little louder, clearing my throat.
She stopped walking. “Um, hey,” she repeated. “I can’t believe Nate West is on my airplane. No freaking way, right? It’s surreal. Thanks for helping me out back there, man. I thought most celebrities were assholes. Not the case at all with you. Seriously, that was awesome. Well…Sherrie the flight attendant might not agree, but I appreciated you sticking up for me.”
I laughed. She was blunt and I liked it. “You’re the first person to recognize me all day.” I pointed at my disguise on the floor. “I guess I need to reevaluate that.”
“Nah, your disguise was perfect. It was your voice I recognized.”
“Oh.” No one had ever used that line on me before. Maybe it wasn’t a line. I couldn’t tell. “Want to sit with me for a little while?” I blurted out. “I’m bored. I’ve been out of the country and I could use some American company.”
For a moment, she studied me hard, obviously debating my motives. I had them, yes. And they weren’t all innocent. But no matter what happened here, I desperately wanted this girl’s company. Nothing else seemed to matter in this moment.
She merely shrugged and plopped into the seat to my right. “Sure. I’d love to piss off that prissy flight attendant a little more.”
Again she had me laughing.
“You’ve got to know though—” She stopped talking for a moment, shaking her head. I noticed, barely creeping up the side of her neck from under her sweatshirt, the end of a tattoo. Instantly blood rushed harder through my veins. I wondered if she only had one or many. “I have a serious hard-on for you…as Lucian,” she started to say. “Dammit. I swear…he…you…are sexy as hell as that character. And that’s saying a lot since Kelly Patterson is your co-star and all. But whenever new episodes air, I tune in every Sunday…like it’s my job to watch…not for Kelly, but for you. That’s totally embarrassing but true.”
I swallowed, hard.
The girl stood, avoiding any eye contact. “Sorry. Jeez, I’m rambling like a fool. I’m normally not so pathetically tongue tied. I’ll go back to my seat now.” But she didn’t leave for her seat, she remained close.
I squinted up at her, the air between us growing thick with awkward tension or…possibly something…else. Something hotter. Girls came on to me all the time. But this was different. I felt more in this small moment than I had in way too long.
“Are you saying you normally like girls?” I asked, matching her bluntness and needing to know for sure what she meant.
Her eyes met mine. “Hell yes, I like girls. I only like girls.”
