Uncaged Review – Making Waves by D.K. Marie


Making Waves
D.K. Marie
Contemporary Romance

He’s a risk she shouldn’t take. She’s a complication he can’t have. But when currents of desire run deep, can they resist the tide of passion?

Lilith Brooks was desperate to begin a quiet new life—one with her young daughter and without her narcissistic, gaslighting husband.

So, of course, when she fled to her childhood lake house, she promptly flooded her kitchen and was rescued by her handsome neighbor, Asher Crowley, when he removed a sex toy from her sink (yes, her sink. Get your mind out of the gutter and back into Lilith’s pipes.)

She’d love to avoid another run-in with her hot neighbor, but that’s easier said than done in a small town, especially when their daughters meet and become best friends.

It looked like she’d be seeing a lot more of Asher. Not that she was really complaining…

The single dad had always considered himself too busy raising her daughter and running his construction company for love. That was until his shy, sweet, and sexy neighbor flooded her kitchen and his life with laughter and pleasure. His new neighbor was everything he hadn’t realized he’d wanted.

Too bad she was in the middle of a messy divorce, and the last thing on her mind was dating her new best friend.

Or was it?

Uncaged Review: It’s been awhile since a book captured me right from the first chapter and kept me hooked throughout the book. This is a genre that I don’t read a ton of books in, but once in awhile, I find a book that really grabs my interest. Both Lilith and Asher have past events that get in the way of their blooming relationship, and both will need to come to terms with it before they can both truly move on. Lilith was married to a jerk of a husband and Asher needed to come clean about his past. Both characters have young daughters, who fortunately for them, become best friends. The kids are likeable, and the secondary characters are fun and interesting. There were times I laughed out loud, especially with Hope and Tate.

This is a good, steamy romance that goes at a good pace, and even though it’s a normal sized book, it felt like a quick read. Can’t beat that. Reviewed by Cyrene
