BLOG TOUR: Riptides by Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt

Enzo Rodriguez doesn't take much seriously--unless it involves waves, boards, or good beer.

When too-hot-to-handle Jessica Mills strolls into his life, Enzo is willing to forego all of those things for every second he can spend with her.

But Jessica has a huge secret--and when it’s revealed, it not only crushes Enzo, but has the last person he wants to ask a favor of--his brother-in-law Adam--bailing him out of jail.

Enzo is convinced that the only way to mend his bruised ego and heart, is to pack his bags and leave the turbulent waters of Silver Strand...for good.

This novella is a part of the Lengths series, but can read as a stand alone. Enzo Rodriguez wants what his brothers and sisters and friends have, a true love. As the family is getting ready for Enzo's big brothers wedding, Enzo finds himself thinking about what he is missing. Then he runs into Jessica Mills. A smart, gorgeous, knows what she wants kinda gal. Enzo is smitten and decides to take a chance on love. The only thing is Jessica is hesitant. There is a secret that she keeps trying to tell Enzo, but he is too caught up in his adoration for Jess that he seems to be missing the big picture.

I really enjoyed this novella. It was the first in the series that I have read and I really enjoyed the dynamic of all the characters, making me add the entire series to my TBR. Enzo and his friends are hot, jewish, surfers - quite the combination. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. High recommend this book! Four stars.
Steph Campbellgrew up in Southern California, but now calls the Northeast home. She has one husband, four children and a serious nail polish obsession. She's repped by Kevan Lyon at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
Steph's works include Delicate, Grounding Quinn and Beautiful Things Never Last; My Heart for Yours and My Fate for Yours (with Jolene Perry); A Toast to the Good Times (with Liz Reinhardt) and the bestselling new adult LENGTHS series with Liz Reinhardt: Lengths, Depths, Limits and coming soon: Ties & Riptides.

Liz Reinhardt was born and raised in the idyllic beauty of northwest NJ. A move to the subtropics of coastal Georgia with her daughter and husband left her with a newly realized taste for the beach and a bloated sunscreen budget. Right alongside these new loves is her old, steadfast affection and longing for bagels and the fast-talking foul mouths of her youth.

She loves Raisinettes, even if they aren't really candy, the Oxford comma, movies that are hilarious or feature zombies, any and all books, but especially romance (the smarter and hotter, the better), the sound of her daughter's incessantly wise and entertaining chatter, and watching her husband work on cars in the driveway.

She is the author of the Brenna Blixen series (Double Clutch, Junk Miles, Slow Twitch), the Youngblood series (Fall Guy, Perfectly Unmatched), and co-writes with the awesome Steph Campbell in the Lengths series (Lengths, Depths, Limits, Ties, Riptides).
