IN WITH THE TIDE (Cape Cod Shore Book 1)

IN WITH THE TIDE                             CHARLEE JAMES

Lindsey Hunter never imagined she’d be returning to her Cape Cod home pregnant and divorced, but she’s determined to build a new life for her and her unborn baby. When car trouble leaves her stranded on the side of the road, ex-Marine Damien Trent rides to the rescue on his motorbike. Once upon a time, they’d been friends and briefly, they’d been something more…until he enlisted and left her behind. As Lindsey and Damien reconnect, the attraction is still as strong as ever. But Lindsey’s knows Damien’s not the staying kind.

Damien would rather do anything than come home to deal with his father’s estate. After years of abuse, he was more than ready to leave town the moment he graduated. With Lindsey back in his life, everything is complicated. He’s used to being a lone wolf – until Lindsey and her newborn baby give him a glimpse of the kind of family and future he’s always dreamed of. Can he be brave enough to reach out and grab it?

     When you lose your heart to the boy who stole your heart in grade school the world becomes perfect.  Especially, when you continue to bring him a peanut butter sandwich every day.  You become the best of friends.  She never would know just how much that meant to Damien.  At least Lindsey Hunter thought they were friends.
     Until they hit middle school and were paired up to play spin the bottle.  Damien Trent saw no harm in it.  What could go wrong?  Lindsey was not only his best friend but his secret crush too.  But after they entered that small closet and their lips touched he came out and from that moment on he acted like she had the plague. 
     As soon as high school was over he joined the Marines.  Lindsey's heart had always gone out to Damien because his dad was the town drunk and she knew his mom had left when he was seven.  Leaving his heart scared.  Not to mention his body from the beatings he would get from hands of his father.
     Lindsey had gone to college, gotting married to Matthew who turned out to be a controlling person.  Rich and full of himself.  O course he was none of those things before they were married or else she wouldn’t have married him.  Soon after marrying him he changed. 
     He had her stop being around her family and friends, stopped painting saying she wasn’t very good and had her quit her job when she became pregnant.  She surprised him at work on day with homemade cookies.  Well, she was the one that got the surprise.  Because he had his secretary’s legs in the air on his desk as he had his member in her.  Yup, he was having an affair.
     So, after a year they were divorced.  She was moving home to Cape Cod.  Bought a fixer up on the beach.  On her way there her car breaks down.  Guess who finds her?  After nine years in the Marines, he is home to settle up his father’s affairs since he just passed away.  He needed to settle the will, have the funeral, and sell the home he hated.  So, he helps her out.  Since all the hotel room are full since it’s summer she helps him out by letting him stay in a room at her house for the night.

     Within a week the baby arrives early changing the course of both of their lives.  I enjoyed this nice easy laid-back read.  I give this: 4 stars.  Provided by  Follow us at
