Published: November 10, 2016

After surviving her darkest hour, it was time for Noelle Thibodeaux to shake off the cobwebs of her previous life. She’d spent the last year as a glorified travel agent for the band her cousin managed, Eton Mess. Now Nile Thomas, the band’s frontman, is in dire need of a personal assistant. He can think of no one better than Noelle for the job. When her cousin calls and offers her the job, she jumps at the chance to pack her bags and make a fresh start.

Nile is impressed with how easily Noelle slips into her role, managing everything for him. But his tortured artist persona wears on her fragile and frayed emotions and their working relationship is less than ideal. Only once the rest of Eton Mess arrives on location, and Noelle instantly bonds with band member Nate Bridges, do things begin to look up for Noelle. Nile, however, is far from approving of their new found friendship and his displeasure hasn’t gone unnoticed. Noelle will do anything to prevent a rift in the band or damage to Nate’s friendship with Nile. The only thing she knows to do is put up walls and pull away.

Will Nate stand up and fight for Noelle? Can Noelle fight the darkness that threatens to swallow her whole? Or will their love be forever drowned by the undertow?

My Review:
3.5/5 Stars!!!
Love’s Undertow is the story of a tortured artist and the assistant who desperately wants to help him.
This is one angsty book, let me tell you.  Nile is all broody and angsty and sometimes “woe is me.”  He is the epitome of tortured artist.  He hires Noelle to be is personal assistant and you know it’s not just because she is so efficient.  However, Nile can’t contain his broodiness and it pushes her away.  Noelle wants to help Nile, but he won’t let her in.  She meets Nile’s fellow band member, Nate, and they hit it off instantly.  Well, you know that sparks a fire under Niles’s butt.
I had mixed feelings.  I like the whole tortured artist thing, but Nile was a bit much.  I wanted to smack him upside his head more than once.  I like Noelle and really, I was rooting for her to get with Nate several times.
This is a pretty good rock star romance that most will enjoy.

I nodded and focused my attention past Michael and Zach. When my eyes reached their target I felt everything around me disappear, except for the beautiful creature in front of me. He was tall and sinewy, broad shouldered with the chiseled body of a swimmer. His light brown hair hung in soft, shaggy waves just past his ears. I took in the kindness and gentleness of his face. He had the most stunningly beautiful eyes that were the blue of the ocean with a thin layer of brown circling the pupil. I could dive in and get lost in them. I felt drawn to him. I stepped away from Ross’s side and moved toward him, not missing that he began to move towards me as well. He reached a hand out to me and as I took his I felt an electric current shoot up my arm and through my body. I looked up at him in shock and knew from the look on his face that he had felt the same connection.
