Blue Crush Synopsis:
Genevieve Tierney moves to Lake Tahoe after college, determined to go it alone after being betrayed by her boyfriend. Working at a casino and avoiding cheating jerks seems like a good plan, until she meets the one guy tempting enough to drag her back down.
Lewis Sallee is six and a half feet of perfectly sculpted mountain man who threatens her play-it-safe approach and awakens a sex drive she never knew she had. Although Lewis is in a complicated relationship with one of the most beautiful women Gen has ever seen, she can’t seem to control her attraction to him.
To boost her confidence, Gen steps out of her comfort zone and signs up for the Alpine Mudder, a gritty endurance race. But as she prepares for the biggest physical challenge of her life, her emotional strength is pushed to its limits after she accepts Lewis’s help in training. He tests her willpower and has her fighting her body’s response to him—with her mind and heart not far behind
When you are reading a good and the two main characters having instant chemistry then the odds are that you are reading a really good book, but when you throw in a phenomenal plot then you have a fantastic grade A book. I couldn’t force myself to put this book down. It was that good. Gen is an emotionally strong young woman who moves to Lake Tahoe to escape the pain caused by an ex boyfriend. She gets a job working at a casino where she meets the very fine Lewis. From the second that they meet, there is an instantaneous white hot chemistry that flows between the pair. But the problem is that Lewis is already involved in a relationship. Even knowing that he is taken, Gen can’t help her attraction for Lewis. My favorite part of this book was the transformation that Gen goes through. She toughens up not only physically but mentally and emotionally by deciding to enter an endurance race. This decision will test her in ways she could never imagine due to the fact that Lewis is her trainer. Gen is no weak girl, but a smart, strong and sassy woman in charge of her own destiny. These are two very likable characters and their chemistry is off the charts. The writing is amazing. I felt as if I were there growing and changing with Gen and watching her fall in love. This book definitely had the sexy covered with Lewis. He is one tall and sexy drink of water.
