Blood Tide

Dolphin Shore Shifters, #1

CJ Matthew did a great job of writing an in-depth, engrossing story. The story line was well developed and written, the characters were fun to get to know and the plot was detailed and flowed well. I really enjoyed the ancient history that formed the base for this book. The book starts off fast paced and continues that way throughout the entire story. There are many uncertainties and it is fun to travel along with the characters. Blood Tide is the first book in the Dolphin Shore Shifters series and I am looking forward to reading more about their story.

Poseidonia, or Sy, is a dolphin shape shifter who is beginning her 3 year rotation on land. She is especially looking forward the the rotation so she can try to find out what has happened to her pod sister who has been missing. She also has her real mission to complete on land. All of that gets put on the back burner though as her entry from the Channel embarks her on a deadly adventure. Noah Nelson is a retired Air Force pilot who is battling his own demons and gets pulled into the sinister intrigue that Sy faces as he rescues the naked stranger on the beach. They must decide whether to work together and trust each other or go their separate ways as things become even more deadly. As Sy tries to determine if Noah is worth risking her life, as she is perilously close to breaking pod rules, she must also decide whether she can share her secrets with him.


Book Blurb for Blood Tide

The Santa Barbara Channel holds a closely guarded secret…

She had more than just her mission…

Sy’s rotation on land as a dolphin shifter couldn’t have come at a better time. With her best friend missing and no answers forthcoming, it was time to take matters into her own hands. And with the resources at the Save Blue Water organization, finding her friend would be a whole lot easier. Except …something sinister is going on inside SBW, something deadly, and Sy finds herself at the center of danger.

The last thing he needed was bullets and bombs…

Noah Nelson spent every minute trying to forget the war while fighting his PTSD, but jumping in front of a bullet was second nature. It had nothing to do with the fact the target was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen. Or that she was naked. But suddenly he’s caught up in her world, protecting her from unforeseen threats, and falling in love … but Sy’s got a secret that may rip them apart. Forever.
