I was happy until I met him. I was content until I met her.
That's a lie. I was lonely. That's a lie. I was incomplete.
He was nothing but a handsome distraction. She was nothing but a pretty pastime.
That's untrue. He changed my life. That's untrue. She altered my world.
I blame him. I blame her.
I blame myself. He wasn't to know. I blame myself. It wasn't her fault.
I don't want to need him. I hate that I want her.
There's no easy solution. There's no going back.

Our Review
Against the Tide was a great read and it's going to be really hard to put my review into words. First off, this was a very well written book full of angst, emotion, humor and love. I was absorbed by the whirlwind of misfortune Finn and Megan encounter through such a short period of time. Finn and Megan see each other in a night club and are instantly intrigued and feel a connection to each other. They can't seem to fight the attractions. When they do act upon it , it is a life altering change. A Change that ultimately makes them both start on a new life's journey. One of anger, compassion, despair, depression, fear, hate, hope, regret, love, understanding and most of all healing. I don't want to give to much away about this book but I would highly recommend it. It is an emotional book. However, it is a book about events that indeed happen in real life. On some level everyone could relate and understand to what these characters are going through.
I love when Finn is trying to heal and change and show Megan his more sensitive loving personality. You get to see his playful and humorous side. I loved every single bit of it. I laughed like I was there with them and it was wonderful. I also enjoyed getting to know a little bit of the other characters in the book as well. Finn's friends Kyle and Harley. I do hope Nikki Groom writes about these two guys. I would love to find out more about them as well. This book does end with a bittersweet ending which left me in tears. Nikki Groom definitely earned 5 stars from me! Brilliant read. Thank you Nikki!! :-) 

Marc calls for more shots right about the same moment I scan the VIP area and my eyes lock on to her. After three weeks of not being around, she’s here. The girl that’s got me all kinds of flustered. Always with that guy who looks like a total wanker with his floppy hair and pretty boy face. Who is she? Why can’t I look away? I’ve been waiting to see her since the last time she was here. I've looked for her. I’ve wanted to feel the electricity that fires off her when she holds my gaze, and every week that she’s not been here, I’ve been disappointed. We haven’t spoken, haven’t even exchanged smiles. There’s just something there. It’s like we seek each other out and I don’t know why. It’s turned in to a habit I like more than the ecstasy I take. “Hey Finny boy, tequila, you in or you going for a piss?” Kyle calls out behind me loading his question with the silent search of my intentions for this evening. I glance back at him, answering mindlessly, “Yeah, man.” When I look back, she’s still there. Looking. Just looking. No smile. No scowl. Just looking at me like there’s something compelling her to do so. The light catches her lip ring and my eyes roam the length of her body like a hungry man that’s been starved for weeks, no, months. She gives off something that makes my hormones run rampant, like an unbalanced teenager. Only I’m fully aware that I’m a grown man and I know exactly what I want to do to her. God, what I would do to her. She’s dressed in a little black dress, and I mean, little. It’s simple, but the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen. It hugs her tiny, perfect waist, and only just covers her arse. Her legs, her perfect legs, which, even though she isn’t tall, look just long enough to wrap around my waist … “Here.” Harley nudges my arm and hands me a shot of tequila. I take it mindlessly, all the while still locked on to the enigma on the other side of the room. Then she does something that floors me. She nods, winks, and raises her glass to me across the room. For a second, I’m stunned at the action. We’ve been watching each other for weeks, no words, no actions, just the silent knowledge that we both know we are looking at each other. Now she’s broken the silent pact, what does that mean?
