Teaser:

“That looks so romantic.”

Liv smiled. If heart-eyes were possible on a real human being, that’s exactly what Caro’s were doing now. “It does look romantic,” Liv agreed, gesturing at the scene on the television of a couple kissing passionately as the surf swirled around them.

“Is it?”

“Is it what?”

    Waiting for the Tide to Turn is a short and sweet story about friendship, love, and how scary it can be to try and bridge the gap between. It’s cute, fluffy, and features some very fun banter between its two main characters. There’s not a lot of descriptive language, but the emotions carried me through without issue.

    Liv and Caro are best friends. Liv is also in love with Caro, but no matter how she hard she tries, she can’t seem to find the courage to confess her feelings. What if things go wrong? What if Caro doesn’t like her back? What if opening her big mouth ruins their friendship? Things build to a head when Caro, enchanted by the idea of the ocean being romantic, asks Liv to go see the sea with her. The ocean may not be romantic, but this trip will be one to remember.

    Waiting for the Tide to Turn is a story about how difficult and daunting it can be to go from friends to lovers. It combines the wistfulness of young love with the very real fear of ruining the best friendship you’ve ever had. It’s straightforward and often bittersweet, but never quite loses its charm or sense of humour along the way.

    I did notice a minor tense shift and the lack of character description. However, those are my only real complaints. Otherwise, this story is equal parts fun and emotional, and the ending is painfully cute.

    All in all, this is a cute love story for anyone who’s been bowled over by a wave in the ocean. Especially if they were trying to do something before they ate salt water.
