Making Waves
by Ophelia London

Short and sweet, there’s a lot to like in this novella:

1) Will, AKA Chase Ryder, is a Clark Kent-type hero–part-time geeky tech guy, part-time surfing god.

2) It’s set in HAWAII.

3) The bathing-suit-shopping scene.

4) We get to see Ellie and Charlie from Falling For Her Soldier again.

5) The making-out-in-the-water scene getting-Justine-over-her-phobia scene.

6) Lovers-with-a-past troupe!

7) Did I mention HAWAII? 😉

Only two downsides:

1) The past drama seemed a bit on the fluffy side. I expected it to be more than it ended up being, given the buildup. Still, it was resolved fairly quickly, which was a plus.

2) The resolution of the current-day problem was also an easy fix, I assume due in part to the restaints of writing a novella, but the end result was it felt a bit like cheating. Perhaps a longer format would have allowed this part to develop more fully? It was a fairly minor issue, though.

Overall, this was a fun way to escape to the beach for an afternoon–without risking the dreaded sand in your suit!
