Ride the Tide by Julie Ann Walker

They’re on the hunt for a legendary sunken treasure, but what they find is worth way more than gold. Ride the Tide by Julie Ann Walker.

Brand new hot romantic suspense from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker.

Once a fighter, always a fighter...

Former Navy SEAL Mason McCarthy is done being a fighting man. Now he and the Deep Six Salvage crew are working feverishly to find the wreck of the Santa Cristina and its legendary sunken treasure. Unfortunately for Mason's peace of mind, chatty, brilliant historian Alexandra Merriweather has joined the hunt and there's no avoiding her. Alex is exactly the kind of distraction Mason can't afford right now... or maybe ever.

When a murderous enemy from Mason's past threatens the Deep Six, he must rely on old instincts and the skills he honed from years of running black ops to make sure nothing touches Alexandra. But with their lives on the line and the adrenaline running high, it's inevitable that sparks will fly.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the third book in this series – and I am loving them all! We have joined a band of people who are searching for the wreck of a ship which was laden with gold which was to go back to Spain. I love the premise of the group working out on an island, blending their skills of navigation, research, archeology, etc. If you have not read any of the books yet, then I would absolutely suggest that you start from the beginning, as you will get to understand the dynamics better, and I think enjoy this story even more.

Mason has a strong belief that he is not worthy of love – in no small part because he survived war, and his (married and about to be a dad) best friend didn't. He doesn't stink on hookups, so has a reputation as a player. So Alexandra thought it was quite reasonable to ask him to be her first. But instead, he turns her down and really damages her self-esteem. But they continue to work together and repair their friendship as best they can.

This intense attraction and interest in getting it together simmers along through a large part of the book, as we face a complex and well-funded attack on the team. Working out why, and what will happen next gives a very suspenseful feel to the book, and it is cleverly plotted and gives Mason a jolt into remembering what is really important.

Another really good installment to the series, I am looking forward to the next one already!

Mason and Alex are opposites. He is the big, brawny, silent type and she is petite, intelligent, and an open book who always has plenty to say. I thought Alex was pretty brave, she makes Mason an offer most men would not refuse but Mason does. Well, for as long as he can resist her anyway. It was great watching her wear him down, with a little bit of pushing from his mates too.

The men of the Deep Six Salvage make a great cast and there are plenty of witty conversations and a few laughs. We also get to see the beginnings of something between Wolf and Chrissy, who will no doubt be the stars of the next novel. And thanks to Wolf, I’ll never hear Escape (the Piña Colada song) the same way again.

I loved the combination of action and romance in Ride the Tide. At one point I got so caught up in the sexy fun between Mason and Alex, that when the story switched to action and danger appeared, I was surprised. Then when things got serious and lives were in danger, I got swept away in another direction.

If, like me, you’ve read Julie Ann Walker’s books before you’ll be familiar with her formula, but for me it never gets old. Reading Ride the Tide is like watching a great action movie only with better sex scenes and a little more romance. This gets a solid four stars from me.
