Now that Willow Avery is out of rehab, she's got one chance left to prove herself before she’s officially on every producer’s shit list. At least, that's what her parents and agent are claiming. She doesn't really give a damn if she never makes another movie or not—she just wants to get on with her life, get back to her friends, and find her next escape. But Willow is broke. And whether she likes it or not, acting is the only job she knows how to do.

When she accepts the lead in a beach drama, Willow finds herself in Hawaii. And in Hawaii, she finds Cooper, the gorgeous surfer hired to train her for her new role. With the bluest eyes she’s ever seen and the sexiest Australian accent she’s ever heard, Cooper’s different from the men she’s used to. He doesn't want to use her. And he refuses to let her fail. But when an old friend re-enters Willow’s life—a friend whose toxicity she’s been drawn to time and time before and whose presence brings about the painful memories she's tried so hard to suppress—Willow will have to choose between the girl she was and the person she’s becoming. The lifestyle that helps her forget the pain and the guy she’s falling hard for.

The Review: “I love you Willow, but I can live without you. I just refuse to.”- Cooper

This is the first book that I've read by Emily Snow, and I really enjoyed it. The book from the beginning really captures some issues and really gets you stuck into the story. 

Emily Snow has created a gripping story that deals with real life issues. As a story everything seemed really believable  all the characters had their own issues and in the writing style that Emily Snow has it really comes across in the pages and you just get very invested in all the characters on the page.

As the story evolved I came to like Willow as a character, although she's really f**cked up, she knows she doesn't need someone like Cooper to lean on and help her fix. She does it herself and in turn becomes a lot stronger in herself, I'm pretty sure it's an example women should take, that you don't always need a man to help you, you can if you set your mind to it, fix yourself.

I really enjoyed the slight twist regarding Coopers character, that really brought out a bit more drama, but also made it more interesting. Overall the relationship her and Willow formed was really well done, and I liked that he was always there when she needed him. But I also liked that he knew to keep his distance if she needed it. 

I did feel that the book dragged in certain places and there were things that probably could have been dealt with better, but overall Tidal was a really good read and I definitely think it's worth a read if you haven't already picked it up. I liked the book enough, and I really enjoyed Emily Snows writing style and the way she tells the story so I'm definitely going to be reading more from her in the future :)

Great review Donna. I'm intrigued as to the twist in Coopers character. This book sounds good for a fun, summer read.

Pretty exactly my thoughts! I liked it but it didn't blow me away. Still, I read it while I was on Hawaii so that was a funny bonus :) Would make a great movie though!
