Blog Tour & ARC Review: Riptides (Lengths #4.5) by Steph Campbell & Liz Reinhardt


Enzo Rodriguez doesn’t take much seriously–unless it involves waves, boards, or good beer.

When too-hot-to-handle Jessica Mills strolls into his life, Enzo is willing to forego all of those things for every second he can spend with her.

But Jessica has a huge secret–and when it’s revealed, it not only crushes Enzo, but has the last person he wants to ask a favor of–his brother-in-law Adam–bailing him out of jail.

Enzo is convinced that the only way to mend his bruised ego and heart, is to pack his bags and leave the turbulent waters of Silver Strand…for good.

4 star review!

**ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.**

I absolutely love the Lengths series and though that Riptides was a great addition. There may be a slight possibility that Enzo is my favourite character out of all the books; I am not even ashamed to say it. This book was a quick read – for me!

I loved that the story was fast-paced and quickly detailed the moment that Enzo met Jess, continuing the progression of their relationship throughout the novel. I am a huge fan of the way that family is meshed into this series  and it always makes me smile. The dynamics are what makes their family relationships entertaining.

Crazy is never wanting this to end. Never wanting to be done with her.

I had one major problem with this book though… the ending! You hope and pray as the pages keep going by that a resolution is going to be made and then abruptly it all comes to an end and you find out that you have to wait for a spin-off series to continue Enzo’s story. But is he a main character in this spin-off series? I just feel majorly protective of him! **Though I say this, please don’t let it deter you from reading the book because it is incredible!**

There’s love-blind. And then there’s being a fucking idiot. I definitely chose the idiot route.


About the Authors:

Steph Campbell grew up in Southern California, but now calls Southwest Louisiana home. She has one husband, four children and a serious nail polish obsession.

Steph’s works include Delicate, Grounding Quinn and Beautiful Things Never Last; My Heart for Yours and My Fate for Yours (with Jolene Perry); A Toast to the Good Times (with Liz Reinhardt) and the bestselling new adult LENGTHS series with Liz Reinhardt: Lengths, Depths, Limits, Ties & Riptides.



Liz Reinhardt was born and raised in the idyllic beauty of northwest NJ. A move to the subtropics of coastal Georgia with her daughter and husband left her with a newly realized taste for the beach and a bloated sunscreen budget. Right alongside these new loves is her old, steadfast affection and longing for bagels and the fast-talking foul mouths of her youth.

She loves Raisinettes, even if they aren’t really candy, the Oxford comma, movies that are hilarious or feature zombies, any and all books, but especially romance (the smarter and hotter, the better), the sound of her daughter’s incessantly wise and entertaining chatter, and watching her husband work on cars in the driveway.

She is the author of the Brenna Blixen series (Double Clutch, Junk Miles, Slow Twitch), the Youngblood series (Fall Guy, Perfectly Unmatched), and co-writes with the awesome Steph Campbell in the Lengths series (Lengths, Depths, Limits, Ties, Riptides).
