This can be read as a standalone. Okay now let me start with my thoughts on it.
Omg!! This was a new kind of book for me. I haven’t ever read a swingers book, thought I might hate it but on the contrary I enjoyed it a lot. I enjoyed the story line of this book; it wasn’t just an orgy fest. I honestly felt bad for the guy in this book. I also loved that you find yourself hating on his wife making his situation and the fact that he finds someone so much better. There was a mystery to this story line as well, and to me that’s probably what kept me wanting to finish it so soon. If you are wondering about the sexual scenes, let me just say they are steamy. I would have loved to know more on the ending and know what happened with all the bad people. I’m twisted but I really hated his wife and I wanted and hoped to see her destroyed, sadly it doesn’t really touch up on her misery if any. It was a hea, so no worries there. I would totally pick up more books from this author.

Turning the Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 5) by Phoebe Alexander is another great addition to this already great series. I enjoy the stories Phoebe gives us of the swingers and the characters are familiar and loveable. The books can be read as standalones but I suggest you read them in order to understand the characters and how they got to where they are now. They each feature in all the books in one way or another.

Connie left her cheating husband and moved back to be with her sister, the fabulous Casey. Connie is not a swinger and not part of that lifestyle but everything is sexy, hot and definitely makes her curious. When she meets Luke at the club things definitely take a turn for the better but not before his life falls to pieces.

This is hands down one of my all time favorite series! Each book is beautifully written. The characters are amazing. It’s always like coming home! The one thing I love is that yes it’s a series about swingers but the stories are spell bounding and emotional. It’s not all sex but there are some truly steamy sexy times.

Luke is in the worse loveless marriage. OMG every time his wife was in a scene I literally got all stabby! He’s a good friend of Cap’s and was invited to the club where he meets Casey Fontaine’s sister Connie. The attraction was instant but both people have major hurdles to overcome.

This book had so many twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. The blooming love between Luke and Connie was beautiful and the drama will have you on the edge of your seat. Phoebe Alexander is a beautiful writer who is the master of sucking you into the world she creates!

5 out of 5 Stars

Turning the Tide is another perfect addition to the Eastern Swingers series. Phoebe Alexander has once again delivered a page turning story with captivating characters and a rich storyline. It is hard for me to put into words just how Turning the Tide (and the rest of the Eastern Swingers series) makes me feel. Phoebe Alexander is incredibly talented in her writing with a clear goal to deliver body positive as well as sex positive stories that leave you feeling like you met several new friends in these characters and said friends just “get” you.
While sexy like all of Phoebe Alexander’s writing, Turning the Tide tackles adult issues that in many circles are taboo to talk about, alternative lifestyles, abuse, infidelity (to name a few) in a way that is comfortable and intriguing. I can’t stress enough that you should read ALL of the Eastern Swingers series, preferably in order. It is not necessary, in fact I’ve jumped around a bit but each book gets better than the last and seeing how each character’s lives are woven into each other’s is a fun addition to the storylines. As always, I look forward to reading more from Phoebe Alexander.

Turning the Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 5)
By Phoebe Alexander

Turning the Tide is book five in the Eastern Shore Swingers series by Phoebe Alexander. Each of the books in this series can be read as a standalone quite easily. First up please note that this book may contain a trigger effect for some people as it does discuss emotional and verbal abuse so read with care. Secondly this book does have cheating involved. What we need to remember the cheating husband is not real so stress less, and no I do not condone cheating in the real world. This book is most probably my favourite purely because it was good to read a story on older people and by older, I mean people around my age lol. So anyway, Turning the Tide is focussed on Luke and Connie. I have had to reword this review three times. In the end I must admit I ended up reading a few reviews by other people, I must say I was shocked to read some thought that Luke was a weak. I do question that as do we think a woman is weak in the same situation?

I really like Luke’s character, he has remained faithful to an abusive wife, done everything for her and for what? All the while this poor man is depressed and feels like he is stuck where he is. Enter Cap (from book 1), convinces Luke to co me to his club for a look.

Connie moved to Ocean City to be closer to her sister Casey who had a battle with breast cancer. Connie to me was an awesome one therefore I enjoyed reading about her. Connie is by no means in to the lifestyle of the club. She does however like to hang out at the club and is made to feel part of the crew.

When Connie and Luke meet the connection between them is instant, it is something that has Luke thinking how much happier he could be. But yes of course there is a but, Barbara is causing trouble so could this be too much for Luke and Connie to handle? Will Connie and Luke get their HEA, you will need to read the book and find out. Lastly, I have listed the books in this series in case you want them.

Book 1 Fisher of Men – Cap and Leah’s Story
Book 2 The Catch – Calvin and Paisley’s Story
Book 3 Siren Call – Jessie and Sirena’s Story
Book 4 Sailors Knot – Casey, Gabriel and Joshua’s Story
Book 5 Turning the Tide – Luke and Connie’s Story

Turning the Tides is book 5 in the Eastern Shore Swingers Series by author Phoebe Alexander. These books can be read as a standalone, as each book follows a new set of characters. Phoebe Alexander continues to wow me with her writing style, incredible plot/storylines and even better characters. Each time she writes another book I continually get captivated and drawn into each read and don’t want to put it down.

Turning the Tides tells us Luke & Connie’s story. This book has sexiness, its steamy theres action and of course an amazing connection between the two characters that you cant help but wish they get the HEA they both deserve. Both of these characters are relatable and lovable and when you are reading their journey, you feel as though you are there right alongside them living the story yourself.

This was another addicting read to this series and one that shouldn’t be missed! I can’t wait to read what else comes from this series and this author.

by Phoebe Alexander

I loved reading this wonderful addition to an already wonderful series. These books in this series can be read as a standalone and you can also read them in order as some of the characters show up in each of the books. This is Luke and Connie’s story and there is a lot of different emotions throughout their story. There is suspense, funny moments, steamy moments and so much more. The swingers group are close knit group of friends that are like family and there for each other it times of need. I really enjoyed reading this story and I couldn’t put it down till I found out where these two end up. I found myself rooting for Luke’s happiness as he has been through alot. I don’t want to give anything away so I just want to say that it’s a definite must read and I highly recommend this book and this wonderful series.

Turning the Tide is the fifth book in the Eastern Shore Swingers series. It can be read as a standalone.

Having read the previous books in this series, I’d say this one is different in that it is less about the swinger lifestyle and more about Luke and Connie as a couple. The previous books were more about how the swinger lifestyle affected and influenced the relationships, this one is more about how it facilitates the initial meeting of Luke and Connie. I liked the BDSM aspects of this book, but I found myself conflicted about the book in general. I can’t really get into any further detail about that or I’ll ruin the story line. Overall it was an entertaining read. The story moved along at a nice pace and there were a couple of unexpected twists. I don’t feel like this story was a strong as some others in the series, but it has some juicy moments.

Turning the Tide by Phoebe Alexander is book five of the Eastern Shore Swingers Series. These books can be read in any order but characters from previous books do make appearances.

Luke feels stuck in a hopeless situation. He really doesn’t see any hope that it will change. He gets invited to the club and that’s where things might start to change. Connie doesn’t participate in the lifestyle but likes to spend time at the club with her friends. She feels an instant connection to Luke but then she finds out about his baggage. Is their connection worth the trouble it’s causing?

This book was so good and probably my most favorite out of the series. Luke is such a great guy trapped in an impossible situation. The characters in this series are all unique but very relatable. I like that the characters make appearances outside of their own book. They are family. This book was an excellent read!
