The Waves by Amy Matayo | Book Review


STORY | Dillon isn’t the luckiest girl when it comes to romance and keeping a guy. Her latest boyfriend not only has a fianceé, but to make things worse, Dillon finds out about his lies because his fiancée is her client! None of the books prepare you for this. To pile more disaster onto her already chaotic life, Dillon is about to embark on a seven-day cruise… with her entire family; a family who’s ready to marry her off with the bus boy if need be!

Enter Liam. Best friends with Dillon’s cousin, Liam has liked Dillon from a far for a long time. Trouble is, his brother also has a thing for their pretty best friend’s cousin. When a one-day snorkeling excursion strands Dillon and Liam on a remote island with no form of communication, the pair will have to learn to rely, not just on each other, but their instincts if they hope to return.

BOOK REVIEW | The Summer I Turned Pretty – To Grow Up in a YA Romance

THE WAVES REVIEW | This book is 210 pages of adventuring delights; albeit just from a reader’s point of view. From opening page to the final turn of a page, it will grip you. I love its short, fast paced premise not just in theory, but also for the current state of my reader mind. The story keeps the plot clipping at its best pace, and the story only becomes more interesting from there.

Complex, but sweet, adventurous and romantic, The Waves is an ideal summer time read. Dillon and Liam are characters you’ll enjoy being stranded with, and if you like a steamy kiss or two or good chemistry, inside these pages, you’ll find a romance with both attributes. There’s also some family dynamics that add personality to the “bigger picture” story. Perhaps the best part is, that while this experience is frightening emotionally (being unsure if rescue will come), it stays away from other scary possibilities.

So, pick up The Waves and get lost in an exiting summer time adventure!

Content Note: While “clean,” this novel does have some sensual kissing scenes that many not be suited to everyone’s reader preference.
