Riptide by H.M. Ward

Blurb:
16125945A random hook-up isn’t enough for Trystan, not anymore.

After everything Trystan went through to tell Mari that he loves her, there is no way that he’s letting her walk away without knowing how he really feels. Every mask is stripped away making Trystan completely vulnerable. Mari’s the one girl he wants, that he knew he’d never have. But, the look on Mari’s face–the way she kissed him–makes Trystan think that confessing his feelings was worth the risk.

Shocked, Mari stands there staring at Trystan. As if it weren’t enough that Trystan is internet super star, Day Jones, but the song he wrote was about her. That was her name on the music. It was her name etched into his heart. Trystan Scott loves her.

Everything Mari wants is within reach. She just has to have enough guts to reach out and take it.

My Review:
ORIGINAL REVIEW: 4.5 stars — AHHHHHH!!!! SON OF A *****!  Another cliffhanger.  The books in this series are getting better and better.  This one was fabulous.  Not only did you get some happiness with Mari and Trystan, but so much happened in such a small book.  And that ending.  GAH!  I need the next book, and I sincerely hope there aren’t many more, b/c I need closure now now NOW!  Anyways, yeah.  I really liked that they both have abusive situations at home…I think so many people, including those in the situations, downplay mental/emotional abuse…and Mari is no different.  It’s kind of nice to see that being addressed.  OK, I am somewhat disappointed that I read these now not knowing the series wasn’t complete, but I will get over it….someday….I need to start finding *completed* series….

ON REREAD: 4 stars — I wasn’t quite as enamoured as last time apparently.  I LOVED that we got to see Mari and Trystan come together, but I was disappointed in the Brie stuff…it felt kind of weird.  But I’m still really enjoying watching the two of them navigate their relationship, and holy wow did things escalate at the end!
