Audiobook Review: Chasing Swells by A.L. Goulden
Told from alternating POVs, an unlikely romance surges between a professional surfer and a travel writer with no interest in his sport.
When he won his first World Title at eighteen, they said he’d be the greatest professional surfer to ever compete. Fourteen years later, Dean “DeBaz” Bazner is inching towards retirement having never clinched another title. Now he’s pushing limits to prove his beginning wasn’t a fluke, and it’s working as long as he stays focused.
You don’t have to know anything about surfing for it to change your life. Travel writer, Azure Thomas, can attest to that. While navigating the changing world of freelance journalism, Azure takes a gig to write about the nomadic travel habits of a professional surfer. She isn’t prepared to meet a man that connects to her profound loss, who’s sacrificed everything, except his soul, to live his dream. Dean becomes more than a hot magazine cover and surfing, more than a hobby.
The dangerous diversion, in and out of the water, forces Dean to accept there’s more missing from his life than another trophy.
Amongst tropical breezes, in the most beautiful locations on earth, CHASING SWELLS is an absorbing journey about riding the waves of life, overcoming childhood loss, and letting go of the mistakes that barricade us from our potential.
Title: Chasing Swells
Author: A.L. Goulden
Narrator: Matt Haynes
Genre: Romance, Sports (Surfing)
Part of a Series: There’s a companion novel Chasing Dreams but I don’t think Chasing Swells is part of a series
POV: Dean and Azure
Steam Level: Slow burn to steamy
I want more of Dean and Azure’s HEA!!! I enjoyed Chasing Swells a lot. There are not a lot of romances that I read that feature surfing as a sport. I liked how A.L. Goulden mixes in the technical aspects of the sport and competition while not deviating too far from Dean and Azure’s relationship.
I received this audiobook for free from StoryOrign. This is my honest and voluntary review.
