Passionate Tides by J.N. Johnson

Welcome!  I am glad you stopped by because I am featuring a really great short story on the blog today.  I typically shy away from short stories for the most part but I really am growing to like them more and more and I am delighted to have read and be able to share this one with you!  And it's set in Topsail Island, North Carolina one of my very favorite places on earth :)

About the Author:

Living in her hometown of Charleston West Virginia, JN Johnson is the proud mom of two beautiful little girls and is married to her high school sweetheart and greatest supporter who she considers the rock that keeps her grounded to reality.

She was first introduced to the world of fantasy when she was seven years old reading The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe making her never want to read about the “real world” again. Her mom and grandmother’s love of romance novels gave her the opportunity to learn about book trading, taking all of their old books to the local flea market to trade for anything that sparked her interest. Those days are long gone; her books now stay safely on her book shelves at home and out of harm’s way.

She loves to hear from readers, writers and reviewers so please drop her a note at

About the Short Story:

Paisley feels like her life is falling apart and nothing can help her climb out of the hole that seems to be getting deeper and deeper with each new obstacle she faces…

After leaving his home in Tennessee Jake hopes that he can find a fresh start from the past he wants to leave behind…

Can two lost souls find love in Topsail Island, North Carolina? Or will they let their past ruin their second chances at true love?

My Thoughts:

This is a sweet romantic story about heartbreak and second chances.  The premise behind it is sweet, although it is a little predictable.  What I wasn't prepared for was the amount of heat in this small story!  Get ready, this one is for adults only!

You get a little taste of what makes Jake and Paisley so reluctant to get together but I think this story would have been great even without that.  I like the idea of starting over and moving away to do that and these characters are believable.

If you want a break from the norm and need something light and airy to fill the gaps between novels this story is a good one.  I look forward to reading what's next from this author!
