Turning the Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 5)Turning the Tide by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Turning the Tide by Phoebe Alexander a five-star read that will turn you. This is the fifth novel in the Eastern Swingers series, but they can all be read as stand-alone, they truly can as I have read most of them out of sequence. Luke is a very deep character and one that will at times make you question what you believe but then also feel a deep sympathy for him. Connie was a great woman, she makes reading her story easy. This is a complex love story, and as with true love, it never goes smoothly, just creates more passion and drama. The question is will it create a happy ending? That’s something I can’t tell you as you need to read this amazing story to find out.

Turning The Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers #5) By Phoebe Alexander
4 Stars!!!!

Another trip into the swingers and I wasn’t disappointed. The author really has a unique style and brings in a bit of drama to add to the story. I really enjoy how she manages to bring the lifestyl into light and how tastefully she does so.

I found myself really routing for Luke as you can see that he is in a bad situation. The chemistry between Connie is so explosive. The drama that unfolds in Luke’s life really adds to the story and the irony of Connie being the new nurse was just the best twist to the story. I really was on the edge of my seat as I read this book with the acts of his wife and practice partner it was such a twist. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be reading more from this author and this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Turning The Tide is the 5th book in the awesome Eastern Shore Swingers series by Phoebe Alexander. I have loved this series so far but have to say that Turning The Tide has been. By far, my favourite book in this series.
Having been ‘the woman scorned’ I wouldn’t have thought that I’d have sympathy for a man cheating on his wife and wanting to give him a massive high for doing so but this book brought out so many emotions from me.
Highly respected ENT doctor, Luke Cannon has not had sex with his wife for 10 years. Not only no sex, but no touching, kissing or cuddling. Nothing. Nada. To top it off his wife Barbara is a complete grade A bitch treating him like a doormat. Her excuse – sex is to painful and she is disabled. So it’s no wonder when Luke’s patient, Cap Sheldon invites him to the swingers club he owns, Luke decides, after much persuasion to go along and see what it’s all about. His life is about to change in a major way when he meets the lovely Connie on his first visit to the club.
To his horror, Luke then discovers that Connie is the new nurse his partner Jim has hired. There is a no fraternization policy at their business. That however is the least of Luke’s worries. Barbara is behaving strangely and Luke discovers major discrepancies in his finances.
What follows on is a fantastic story filled with so much mystery and suspense. In a true Eastern Shore Swingers book, it’s also filled with some very HOT sex scenes. This book is a definite page turner. I was glued to it and just couldn’t put it down. I have to say that I adored the character of Luke and Connie and even though Luke is a married man, I was rooting for him to cheat on his absolute bitch of a wife. She doesn’t deserve and amazing man like Luke.
This series has brought me much enjoyment in the last year and I’m so glad to read in the notes at the end of the book that the author plans to add more books to this series. They will definitely be getting added to my TBR list and I’d recommend this series to others. It’s a must read.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Turning the Tide by Phoebe Alexander is the fifth book in the Eastern Shore Swingers series. I love that Connie got her own story after meeting her her earlier in the series.

There were some hot moments between Luke and Connie, but what kept me glued to the book was everything going on in Luke’s life, both personal and business. Not sure why that grabbed me the way it did but I’m not going to complain.

Luke is a sweet man who has had life give him one too many bad hands, but his luck seems to improve when he meets Connie. But does it really?

Connie has to learn to trust again after her ex-husband destroyed every bit of what she had.

This is a great story about two mature adults getting a chance to get the love story right. It could be read as a standalone but I would recommend you start at the beginning of the series. You won’t be disappointed.

Four Stars

These stories get better each time. The author has a way with making you laughing the most unlikely situations. The author is also taking something many people look down on and making it no big deal. We all enjoy our company and pleasure different ways so accept it and move on. I really like Luke. He is such a sweet guy. I felt sorry for him through most of the book. He deserves a HEA. Connie was a good character as well. I really liked the action parts and the drama. Everyone has a crazy person in their life Luke happened to marry his. The story gives you a look into a lifestyle that we look at as wrong. He paints it as a community of friends who happen to enjoy watching and switching partners. I don’t think I would partake but I understand it a little more.

Another great read in this series! While this is book 5, it can be read as a standalone. We do see previous characters but each book is about a new couple.

Where do i start? I do have to say that as I was reading, I had my doubts on if I would like where this was heading but then I had to take a break (kids lol) and when i came back I had a new outlook. How would I feel if this were me or my husband? While it would be very hard I couldn’t tell you what we would do unless we lived it.
This was a great story and I really enjoyed the drama and the suspense. Can’t wait for more of this series!

Turning the Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 5) By Phoebe Alexander. Once again this author takes my breath away with her words! Without fail the author takes readers on incredible journeys with the wonderful characters and amazing storylines that are written. These books can definitely be read out of order and as a stand-alone but I do highly recommend the entire series as each one is incredible. The connection and emotions written into this story grabbed my heart and won’t let go. The characters Luke and Connie immediately drew me into their story and I stayed there well into the night because I simply couldn’t put it down. I’m giving this story a five star review and highly recommend it!

Turning the Tides was a great 5 star read and book five in the Eastern Shore Swingers series.
Phoebe Alexander has once again pulled me right in with her writing, I was an emotional mess by the time I was done.

Luke is in a marriage that has no emotional or physical connection other than the abuse from his wife Barbara (who I despised very much). When his friend invites him to The Factory, a swingers club he meets Connie. There is something about her that draws him in, it’s been a long time that he has felt anything like what she brings out in him.

Connie has moved to Ocean City to be near her sister. When she meets Luke at the club there is something about him that gets her attention. Fate brings them together again when Luke meets the new nurse at his practice. Where will they go from here? Can Connie help Luke forget all his problems?

Overall I really enjoyed this book, Connie and Luke were great for each other. We get all sorts of great scenes with these two. The secondary characters were great, some I liked some I hated. This can be read as a stand alone, however I suggest reading all the books so you can connect with all the characters. I highly recommend this series. I look forward to reading more from Phoebe Alexander.

5++++++ Stars

Good Lord this author has me so confused..Pretty sure this is my favorite of the series then I start thinking about the others and think, no maybe that one was, no im pretty sure its this one…The bottom line is this series simply ROCKS!!

I can’t put into words what it is that draws me to every book in this series, especially when the lifestyles that are portrayed throughout are just not something I understand or am I interested in. I think it’s the characters this author writes about, I get so emotionally invested in them and no matter what I fall in love and that is all due to the talent of this author.

This storyline was awesome, it tackled a type of abuse I have never read before, and also had never thought about but this felt so real as per normal when reading anything by this author. Luke is now one of my favorites in this series, my heart broke for him and I couldn’t help but just want to hug him!

I’m just not going into too much of the storyline, I went in blind as I do most of her books now because if it has her name on it, it’s just a given I’ll read it. Trust me when I say this was an awesome story and addition to this series and I also couldn’t help but jump for joy at having another character back at The Factory after being afraid she was not going to return, and thats all Im going to say about that LOL

Read these books, I promise no matter what genre you do or don’t read they are worth every minute spent, yes they could all be read as standalones I suppose but Im so so glad I didn’t do that, having all the history of all these names that keep popping up throughout each book makes it that much more awesome!

Loved it and hoping for much more from these people and this author 🙂

A Forever Fan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story gives another view into marriage, BDSM and just being a decent person. (Some of my favorite things!)

Luke is a married man. His marriage, like every marriage, has had its ups and downs. But unlike every marriage, Luke’s wife is unstable and there seems to be more to their situation. Their marriage is in the toilet before we even get to met them, so what is really going on?

Connie, not Luke’s wife, is herself divorced and learning to have fun and to trust men. Her ex-husband hurt her emotionally so she’s not ready to fall in love.

When Luke and Connie are convinced, by different friends, to visit a swinger’s club called, The Factory, they learn many new things.

“We have a real mix of people, of ages, sizes, colors, politics, backgrounds. It’s like once we get naked, we strip all those differences away. Underneath we’re all just human.”

Wouldn’t it be nice if the whole world worked this way?

If you are looking for some hot and spicy sex scenes with consensual adults, then you should pick up this book. Alexander has written another great story in her Eastern Shore Swingers Series, in fact you should check them all out, starting with Book one, Fisher of Men.
