RidingItOut_Mock44Alright…Now, I was given the opportunity to check out Riding it Out by Jennifer Foor and for the most part I thought it was a decent quick read. Here’s my synopsis:

Erica just inherited a beach side bed and breakfast from her deceased Aunt. In town for only a few days to sign paperwork and check the place out, Erica is in a rush to get back to her job and life. She is startled by a knock on the door and greeted by a handsome stranger seeking shelter from the coastal storm that just touched shore. Riding out the storm they spend an unforgettable night together.

Okay, so this story is told in two parts. Part I is in Erica’s POV while Part II is told in Reed’s POV. I liked part II a lot. Reed’s story was more interesting and this is where the book comes to life. Erica’s part is pretty much the “set up” but it was just too unrealistic for me. Like I wanted to slap her often and I found myself thinking, “seriously, there is no way?!!”

Lately all the stories I’ve read have either the male or female lead harboring some unforgivable secret that they are so scared for the other to find out for fear of losing them..ENOUGH ALREADY!! Why does everyone gotta be so shady?? However, I actually liked Reed’s drama. It was original and crazy and made me just say wow..definitely didn’t see that coming. I wish the story would have started with that, THEN cut to Erica, then back to Reed again. It, in my opinion, would’ve made the story flow so much better, especially with the bombshell dropped at roughly 65-70% of the book. Overall the story was good and I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
