Phoebe Alexander has once again left me in awe and quite frankly at a loss for the correct words to fully express just how much this book was amazing. I won’t be sitting her and divulging storylines or details and reeling you in with that, for all of those goodies I highly, highly recommend you go grab this novel! (Grab the whole series and start with the first book, Fisher of Men, if you haven’t for the ultimate reading enjoyment!) Instead I am going to tell you all about how much this book has helped me become more well me, as much of the Eastern Shore Swingers series has.
Yeah, yeah so don’t read the book/series if you are sketchy or nervous with alternate lifestyles and the activities that often accompany grown adults in the bedroom. Alexander has never not warned ahead. Don’t let it stop you if you are just a tad unsure but curious though, because these books are the perfect way to peak that curiosity. I truly enjoy and appreciate that so much realism and effort on the part of Phoebe Alexander goes into each and every one of these novels. This is raw, real, emotional, and unique. This is human life, and so often we have books, magazines, television, movies etc. that airbrush and fine-tune everything so we really don’t ever have all the real life stories to fully relate to. YOU WILL NEVER FIND THAT WITH A PHOEBE ALEXANDER NOVEL. Frankly, I love that. Turning the Tide was no different. The topic of infidelity is never a subject that is easy to take on, let alone one that can be written so darn objectively with such prose as this. A hundred kudos for this! I completely understood so much, connected to these characters and felt it so much that I could probably blabber for days about all of them and the reasons why. Instead, I will part with you my favorite tagline and a great one really to sum up this book, so fitting, and hope that you too enjoy Turning the Tide as much as I did! Thank you for another fantastic read Phoebe Alexander!!
