About the book:
Authors: Steph Campbell & Liz Reinhardt
Release date: August 26, 2013
When a shiny new convertible arrives for her twenty-first birthday, Hattie Beckett has had enough of her absent dad trying to buy a place in her life. It’s time for him to face her--or get out of her life forever.
She tosses some clothes in a bag, looks up her father’s last known address, and sets her GPS for Silver Stand, California.
When she arrives at a beach-bum paradise that’s totally foreign to her New England upbringing and finds nothing but an empty lot where her dad maybe once lived, her immediate instinct is to pack up her car and head right back to Connecticut.
But she also finds... Deo. The half-brother she never knew she had. He and his hippy-dippy mom insist that Hattie stick around—at least for the summer. And with all of her friends spending the summer abroad, what else does she have to do?
Her ideas about family are blown wide open as Deo and Marigold pull her in with their charm and love. But there’s still a huge question mark where her dad is concerned, and that question mark definitely looms over her ideas about love and relationships.
When Hattie meets Ryan, the college dropout turned competitive sailor, her perspective flips with her heart. Like it or not, Hattie is falling fast and hard for Ryan... even if it’s the last thing that she expected - and the last thing her newly found brother wants for her.
This year, I read four of the five (as soon as Drift releases next week, it will be five of the six) books in the Lengths series. Need another reason why Campbell and Reinhardt are super duper bomb? Because the wait for the next book in this series is about a minute long. Seriously, each book in the series released within a few months of each other which is so freakin' awesome! We all know how horrible it is to wait for the next book in a series... so, major cool points to Campbell and Reinhardt.
Anyway, about Ties... I read it back in August (started it the day after it released and finished it three days later) and it's among six of my top, top, top favorites of 2013. All six of my 2013 favorites have one thing in common and it's this... tingling feeling that when it hits, I just know the book I'm holding in my hands is doing it for me. I can't really put into words exactly what that feeling is but it doesn't happen for every book I read. So, when it happened for Ties, before I even finished, I knew it was going to be a blazing 5-star read!
I guess it's the little, sometimes cheesy, moments that definitely grab me by the lady balls that make me fall hard. But it's not always the cheesy gouda moments. The pain and angst and sadness and... pretty much if your book makes me cry, it's in the list.
Ties was an amazing 5-star read that I couldn't get enough of. I loved Hattie, I especially loved Ryan and it was just... perfect all around, up and down, left and right! If you're looking for a new addiction, this book is it! Grab it while it's on sale and get your read on!

Liz Reinhardt was born and raised in the idyllic beauty of northwest NJ. A move to the subtropics of coastal Georgia with her daughter and husband left her with a newly realized taste for the beach and a bloated sunscreen budget. Right alongside these new loves is her old, steadfast affection and longing for bagels and the fast-talking foul mouths of her youth.
She loves Raisinettes, even if they aren't really candy, the Oxford comma, movies that are hilarious or feature zombies, any and all books, but especially romance (the smarter and hotter, the better), the sound of her daughter's incessantly wise and entertaining chatter, and watching her husband work on cars in the driveway.
She is the author of the Brenna Blixen series (Double Clutch, Junk Miles, Slow Twitch), the Youngblood series (Fall Guy, Perfectly Unmatched), and co-writes with the awesome Steph Campbell in the Lengths series (Lengths, Depths, Limits, Ties, Riptides).
