Turning the Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 5) by Phoebe Alexander
4 out of 5 stars
Phoebe Alexander is a fantastic author. She never ceases to amaze me. This fifth installment in the Eastern Shore Swingers series takes a different turn from the previous books.
*Caution to the tender hearted, while this book does not deal with physical abuse, it does discuss emotional and verbal abuse and I can understand how that may be a trigger for some people so if that is you, please read with caution.*
This book takes us on the journey on Luke. Luke has not been physically intimate with his wife in a long, long time and to make it worse..she is emotionally and verbally abusive. Luke has lost love. Barbara is little more than a master trying to control a servant.
Luke’s friend Cap convinces him to take a trip down to The Factory, an exclusive club he owns with his friends, to try to take his mind off of his problems and to see if he can “work out” some of his frustrations.
While there Luke meets Conne, who is the spark to his dying fire. But when Barbara, Luke’s sad excuse for a wife shows up and starts to cause trouble, things turn from Hot and Steamy to Drama and Suspense in a heartbeat.
I loved this book. The banter between Connie and Luke, the new dynamic of the relationships and the new topics and subjects that Ms. Alexander addressed with some very unconventional characters. I loved this book and series!
