Ride it out
By Aden Lowe and Ashley Wheels
Blurb: All Hound wants is a little peace and quiet from life. A stay at the beach house is the perfect opportunity, but when he arrives, he sees Anne. From that moment, his thoughts are anything but peaceful.
Anne has spent her life under the thumb of overbearing family members. Fed up with it, she orchestrates a getaway to show them, and herself, she's capable of a normal life. But Blake (Hound) invades her solitude and independence and makes her want the extraordinary.
When the hurricane warnings come, Hound has a choice. Leave for safety, or ride it out with Anne. Will he choose Anne and take the chance at love or escape for safety?
My Review: (4 Stars)
The story is told from dual points of view of Anne and Blake (Hound), both are confined to wheelchairs and both want to lead independent lives. After Blake's accident, he just wants to get away from it all, but then he meets Anne and things start to change. She gives him a spark and he begins to feel things again. Anne just wants to be normal and she wants to experience life and freedom away from her overprotective family. Once she meets Blake her desire for more is fueled by the feelings he awakens.
It was interesting to have the point of view from two characters who are bound to wheelchairs, but not defined by them. Their struggles with everyday activities made me think about all the things I take for granted. This was a quick sweet romantic read. I enjoyed this book, but gave it only 4 stars, because I wished the history of the characters was a little more developed. I just wanted more backstory for both of them. The story just seemed to go by so quickly. But other than that, it was a very good book with humor and romance
