Crashing Tides by Casey Peeler

You can predict the tides but not the changes they make. Gunnison Del Valle was the current in the tide that was about to change my life.

Crash one we met.
Crash two we fell in love.
Crash three changed our perfectly planned lives forever.


“C’mon GC!  Let’s go dance.”  I shake my head no.

As she begins to pout, I pull her into my lap as I take a seat on the bench.  “I think I’d rather just sit here with you.”  I place a strand of her blonde hair behind her ear causing her eyes to lock on mine.

“And what are we gonna do beside sit?” she says with a raised eyebrow.

“Talk.  Mar, I want to learn everything I can about you.”

Placing her arms around my neck, “Ask away,” she says.

“Favorite color?”

“Carolina Blue.  Yours?”

“Yellow.   Favorite movie?”

“The Notebook.  What’s you’re favorite type of music?” she asks.

“Country.”  Then she begins to giggle.  “What’s so funny?”

“You’re like a Yankee Cowboy aren’t ya?”  Stunned.  Never in my life has a girl called it like she sees it, and I love it.

“Yankee Cowboy, huh?”

“Yeah, I mean look at your country boy hat,” she says with a wink.  “I mean now all you need is a horse or two and you’re good.”  I can’t help but laugh.  She obviously doesn’t know what’s funny.  “Why you laughin’?”

Casey Peeler grew up in North Carolina and still lives there with her husband and daughter.

Growing up Casey wasn't an avid reader or writer, but after reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston during her senior year of high school, and multiple Nicholas Sparks' novels, she found a hidden love and appreciation for reading.  That love ignited the passion for writing several years later, and her writing style combines real life scenarios with morals and values teenagers need in their daily lives.

When Casey isn't writing, you can find her near a body of water listening to country music with a cold beverage and a great book.

If you love sweet, happy-ending romance then this book is for you. I’ll be honest, I’m not always in the mood for romance but these sweet southern reads are my favorite when I’m in the mood for romance. I’m a southern girl at heart and I can’t get enough of a sweet southern boy. When Marleigh and Gunnison meet their junior year of high school over spring break it’s like a crashing wave; instant and all consuming. At first it feels like a quick spring break fling but they quickly realize it will be something more. Their last night together they share a night of passion that will change their lives forever. Two months later when Marleigh arrives home she realizes that she is pregnant. After telling her family she decides to keep the baby but break things off with Gunnison and not tell him about the baby so he won’t have to give up his dream of playing basketball in college and possibly the NBA. Gunnison is heartbroken because he has no idea what made Marleigh break up with him. He decides to try to move on with his life and ends up getting a full basketball scholarship to play at Costal University where he and Marleigh had planned on going together. Gunnison is never able to fully get over Marleigh and when she comes crashing back into his life by arriving at Costal University all bets are off. Will Marleigh finally be honest with Gunnison about why she ran from a relationship with him? How will Gunnison react with he finds out about their baby? Will their love be enough to hold them together or will it go out like the tide? I love reading books by Casey Peeler. They have just enough twists to keep me guessing and cute, charming southern boys to keep me coming back for more. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
