Review: Cresting Tide by Brenda Cothern

I received no compensation from the author for this honest review.

Peter, fleeing from an arranged marriage to a woman, stows away aboard a merchant ship only to be discovered and pitched into the sea. Floating upon the current and awaiting death, he is rescued by a mythical sea elf.

Cuke knew his curiosity with humans would only lead him to trouble but he never expected it would lead him to love. A love filled with complications as he is bound to his watery home.

Can the couple overcome the restrictions of their races and be the fathers to their unexpected child or are they destine to be torn apart by their different worlds?

Author Note:
Contains m/m and hermaphrodite sexual practices and is intended for readers of legal age in the country in which they reside.

Brenda Cothern

Brenda is unlike most authors since she only began writing a few years ago. Her first book Fates, an adult fantasy, was published in 2010. Her love for reading fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary erotic romance has caused her to discard her Bachelor’s degrees in management and marketing in order to write full time. Currently, Brenda has fourteen books published (two of which are free!) She is an Amazon best-selling author for Brothers By Bond and Not For Sale. One of her newest releases, Highest Bidder, is the sequel to Not For Sale and became available August 2013. Her latest release, Sixth, became available January 2014 and is the first in the Mad Dogs, series as well as a best seller on ARE.

Brenda resides in Tampa, FL when not attending conventions and is the Chapter Coordinator for the Tampa Bay O.G.R.E.s, as well as a volunteer with the Tampa Bay Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. She is also an active member in organizing the Florida Leather Fetish Pride weekend and an associate member of the Tampa Leather Club, as well as their event coordinator for Alt Life Bike Fest.

My Thoughts

Overall Rating

Novel Breakdown

Characters: 4
I truly enjoyed Peter and Cuke as characters. Sometimes the least complicated characters make for the best stories.

Plot: 3
The plot was very basic so there wasn't much to say about it.

Flow: 3.5
I was thrown off the flow only one time and that was toward the end. I thought it was a time continuity error but after going back and re-reading it, I realized the character was doing a flashback.

Believability: 4
I totally bought into the characters, the romance and the setting.

Sexual Tension: 3
There was just enough to tease and sate the reader without being crude or going overboard.

Romance: 5
The difference in species and communication was well done and the feelings they had for each other came through clearly.
