Waves of love
is a book based on a young man and an older woman, I say young as in 22 and older as in 32. Sage is a bookstore owner who gave up everything to look after her family store when her dad died then her mum followed shortly after. Derek is a young self-taught surfer who left home a long time before his father had a chance to kick him out, his mum died when he was young and his dad was not the ‘lonely type’ so had plenty of women who had kids that always moved in with them but never treated him nice and his dad never gave a toots. Sage has lived in her town almost all her life but never managed to learn how to surfer, Derek after self-teaching himself to surf he pitched an idea to an editor to let him document his surfer travels and write a book.
I love how the author introduced Derek and Sage, you can feel the chemistry right there and then. Though sage is reluctant due to the sage gap (cradle robber) she doesn't want to even consider it, Derek on the other hand things she’s hot and is into her. The author gives you a glimpse of what each character is feeling and experiencing, though I wouldn't normally say this as for me I do not know why I feel weird even more awkward to consider dating someone younger than me but I have nothing against those who do since I only date men older than me (personal choice and no daddy issues – they are usually 5-7 years older than me). I love the chemistry, the behaviour and the maturity displayed by both these characters; the author has made this book very engaging and not one to put down light heartedly.
I read the book in 2 hours(with occasional breaks –was travelling) but I think it could be read in less than 2 hours. The English language was used nicely and no grammatical errors that I could see; this is a romance book so I was very happy with the level of romance in the book as well as intimacy. Unless fifty shades of doom (yes I have read all 3) it was not repetitive and was only described in 2 sections (not saying where it is go read yourself). This is a well written book which I am very happy to recommend to 16+, I always put 16+ even if the author put 13+ (with this book I am not sure).
Can love overcome an age difference of more than 10 years?
At thirty-two, Sage Drake has the world by the tail. She owns her own bookstore, in sunny Florida, and loves her work so much she lives in the apartment above the store. Then one day a young surfer strolls in, cadging free coffee and donuts from her little caf?.
His name is Derek Chambers, and he’s no regular surfer: he’s an author of a series of surfing travelogues, eager to do a book-signing or two at Sage’s store. She goes him one better by offering to host a series of writing workshops, with Derek as the star.
In return, Derek offers to teach Sage ”" who’s never learned ”" how to surf.

A contemporary romance unlike any other!
