Synopsis: “Nate West. Hollywood bad-boy. Television megastar. Womanizer. Basically everything I hated about the male species rolled into one handsome package. And yet…I wanted him.”
Ellie Turner is a lesbian. She has tattoos, short hair, and a ‘don’t-mess-with-me-attitude.’ She knows who she is, loves who she is, and couldn’t care less what the rest of the world thinks of her. And since she has the most kick-ass best friend on the planet, Noah Clark, even when family drama gets in the way, nothing can offset her happy-go-lucky demeanor.
Until television star Nate West comes along. All thick muscle and alpha-male testosterone. When Ellie meets him on an airplane the only thing Nate West should be good for is a brand new profile picture on Facebook. Right? Wrong. Turns out he’s good for so much more.
This man is about to flip everything Ellie thought she knew about herself upside down.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and although I knew this book wasn't going to be about the same main characters, I was still looking forward to reading it! I really enjoyed this book as well lol! There was something about it that kept me wanting to read on and see what was going to happen next! The plot was also amazing! It developed at a really good pace and I read it in a few sittings! I also don't think I've read a book where a main character is a lesbian and trying to work out her sexuality, so I found that aspect of the plot really interesting and different! There wasn't any suspense or action in this book though, but a secret was revealed that really shook the plot! It was quite a big secret, but I would have liked some action and suspense too! I think this would have added a lot to the plot! Overall, I enjoyed the plot, and I loved that there were some super hot scenes in it as well! The hot scenes were pretty, damn hot lol! The characters were also awesome! Ellie was the main female character, and I loved her in this book! She was really easy for me to connect with! Ellie was also confident in her sexuality and she knew that she was a lesbian! As soon as she saw her love interest though, she began to question her sexuality! I found this very interesting to read about, because as I said, I haven't read a book where one of the main characters is a lesbian! Ellie also really impressed me in this book and I could see why she did the things she did in regards to the secret! She was quite a strong character as well and she learned a lot about herself in this book and came a long way! Nathanial 'Nate' was the main male character, and he was seriously hot! I also loved that although he was famous, he didn't flaunt his money and his fame around! I also respected him as he acted normal and he didn't act like he was better than anyone because of his fame! Like Ellie, I connected really well with Nate too, and I don't think I lost my connection all the way through this book! Nate was also protective of Ellie, and I could see that he had real, deep feelings for her! I just loved Nate, and he also learned a lot in this book about what's important in life and what makes it worthwhile! As much as I loved Ellie and Nate as a couple, I do think that their feelings for each grew too quickly! It was quite sudden, and I'm not really a fan of instant love! I did love that this book was written from both Ellie and Nate's point of views though lol! It helped develop the plot more and getting to go inside both characters heads helped me connect more with them as well! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! The ending of this book was a little abrupt for Ellie and Nate's story though, and judging from the excerpt at the ending of this book the next book is going to be about different characters, so I hope the author gives Ellie and Nate a novella or something to finish off their story or develop their relationship in the next book! The cover for this book is so pretty! You realise how much the cover suits it after you read it! The model on the front definitely suits the character of Ellie too! Big thank you to Sarah for an ARC of Changing Tides and for having me on the Blog Tour!
