He slammed into me like a rogue wavesuddenly, without warning, and with a force so tremendous, it knocked me from my axis and pulled me under, practically drowning me.

Rogue wave is the perfect sequel in the Inland Seas Series. Ive been impatiently waiting to dive back into this world and find out more about the mysterious men in Warwicks crew. And Cutter just might be my favorite so far.

She's managed to do something no other woman has in my thirty-plus years on this planet. She's caught me with

WOW! The Inland Seas series just got a whole lot more exciting! Gwyn McNamee has written a suspenseful, tension-filled romance that had me riveted to the pages. Cutter and Valentina, aka The Kraken and Principessa, are absolutely the most electric and dynamic couple she has ever written. One of my favorites thus far and they will be hard to top. They are a perfect match and I fell in love with their no-holds-barred communication style. They have what it takes to bring the other to their knees, ...more

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee was a fast pace, action filled edge of your seat read that had me hooked.

The second book in this intriguing read, I was pulled in right away. The book bought out all that I wanted from the MC's in the first book. And I have to say that I loved this book more than the first.

The MC's really stole the show. Well developed with strong layers that just kept being pealed back, they kept me reading and I didn't want it to stop. It isn't very

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee is a great addition to this series. It is a fast paced and action packed tale that will have you restless on the edge of your seat. The characters are complicated and fierce but also have many many layers but once you peel them back you can see into their hearts. I enjoyed book one but this book had me feeling so much more for our two main characters and their stories. I am glad we got to peel back Cutters layers and that what we found ...more

Rogue Wave was a great 5 star read and book two in The Inland Seas series.
All I can say is Wow, what a heck of a read. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next.

I was excited to get Cutters story. We got to meet him in the first book. In this book we get Cutters history which drew me right in and intrigued me.

Cutter is very edgy and not your typical man and I loved him. Valentina was a strong woman who was looking for her equal, and Cutter fit that mold. These two were

There is a reason that Cutter is nicknamed The Kraken. He's a cranky grizzly bear that has just come out of hibernation and makes War (from Squall Line) look like a cuddly panda bear. He's an immense a-hole, but he gets things done. Somehow though, I found myself liking him by the end. Valentina kicks butt in her own way, so they're the perfect match. Of course, that doesn't mean they get along. This is a true enemies-to-lovers slow burn trope that turns into an inferno. This trope has to be ...more

Cutter is broken and I just wanted to love him harder. Valentina is a spitfire and I loved her personality. Together, theyre a force to be reckoned with.
This adventure was fast paced and kept my attention. The twists were only slightly predictable, but still great!
Id definitely recommend this HEA and cant wait to read more in this series.

Rogue Wave by Gwyn McNamee a five-star read that will leave you out to sea. This is number two in the Inland Sea series and they just get better with each reading, this built on the characters and story, making it a stronger and more developed story. Cutter and Valentina are just so powerful together, they have such a great chemistry it sets the page aflame. But there is a slowness to the burn, its not a quick burn and out, it burns slow and strong just like the best fires. Gwyn McNamee always ...more

Rogue Wave is the 2nd book in the Inland Seas series by Gwyn McNamee. It can be read as a standalone but Id suggest you also read Squall Line before this book, purely as Squall Line is a fantastic book and will introduce you to Grace and Warwick who also play an important role in this book. I first became a fan of Gwyn McNamee by reading her fabulous Slip Series (highly recommended).
Although Im a fan of this author I was very wary of reading this book as I really didnt like the main character

Rogue Wave is freakin fantastic. Another action packed story with incredible characters. I am in love with this blend of modern day pirate & mafia in a romantic suspense series. Who knew these two could be so expertly woven together. All very unique and fresh.

Cutter is HARD - as in to his core and in every possible way (wink wink). He is big, strong, isn't afraid to get his hands dirty and is pretty cutthroat. The moment his eyes land on Valentina - whew do things get good.

I just read this book in about 3 hours, I could not put it down once I started. I was so so so angry after Squall Line (angry in a good way LOL) and I could not wait to dive in to this one and I loved it just as much as Squall Line...There was sort of a cliffhanger but not one like the other so Im not swearing after this one.

There was a twist in this one that floored me, I had no idea and I think I kinda like it but I'm not

The story Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee is a romantic suspense book. It is a story that once I started, I didnt want to stop reading until the final page. I loved reading about the characters of Cutter and Valentina. Valentina is a strong, intelligent, and independent woman. She finds herself being saved by Cutter. He doesnt hide his anger or suspicion of her. She is finding herself drawn to

Book 2 in "The Inland Sea Series", ROGUE WAVE picks up where SQUALL LINE left off. As there is a continuing arc, I recommend reading this series in order.

"So I'm alive?"
"All your breathing and talking suggests that."
"Am I gonna make it?"
"Not because of anything you did, but because of modern medicine and the strongest antibiotic..."

Cutter was a real @$$ and I didn't care for him I the first book. He definitely redeems himself now. He can still be an @$$, but at least I understand why.

Holy hotness Batman! It gets increasingly difficult to review Gwyn McNamees novels. I struggle to find the words to really express what each of her novels do to me as I read them, and Rogue Wave was no exception to the rule. In fact, this book stands out as one of my favorites of McNamees to date. A difficult thing to do when her Stone Sober novels are some of my all time favorite reads in the history of ever.

This book takes back to the Inland Seas and the dark, looming, and suspenseful romance

Rogue Wave by Gwyn McNamee is the second book in the Inland Seas series. If you havent read anything by this author before then I cannot stress enough that you need to change that. And this series is the perfect way to do it.
Gwyn McNamee can only be described as a pure artist. Everything she writes is perfect. It has the right amount of action and suspense, off set with romance and passion. Her characters are strong and relatable. They draw you into the story so fully that you are engrossed

This series is getting more and more exciting.

Warwick et al are still heavily indebted to Il Padrone and are desperate to escape his clutches. When their first plan goes belly up, they are forced to switch gears and trust an unlikely ally.

Cutter - a trained deadly assassin - always trusts his feelings, and his feelings say Valentina is dangerous and way too much trouble. Yet, she proves to be indispensable many times over. But trust is hard for Cutter to give, and he KNOWS Valentina is hiding

Amazing. Totally amazing.

In Squall Line I couldn't really find much to like about Cutter, but we see the true depth of the man in Rogue Wave and he puts the Mariana trench to shame. He's still a major a-hole but he's a hot, sexy, messed up, courageous, idiot of a man too.

This is a decent length novel but I wanted more time with Valentina and Cutter because they are so fantastic. I absolutely adored both main characters, they are both strong, emotional and caring individuals, Cutter is more

She has a way of grabbing you from the very beginning of the story and takes you on an amazing journey with her characters. I have yet to be disappointed with anything I have read by Ms. McNamee and I have been fortunate enough to read most of what she has written to date.

This is just as entrancing as the last book! The author easily draws me in and traps me with her words. I cant let go until I have finished this book!! She makes me care about these characters. After the last book I couldnt WAIT for Cutters book. I wanted to know more about him and WHAT type of woman could handle him. Let me tell you...it was worth the wait! He is a scary, angry, hard and a bad attitude kind of guy! This is not your normal lovable alpha man.

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee. This book was amazing and don't start it thinking you will stop after a few chapters. It sucks you in and you are glued to the pages! This is the story of Cutter and Valentina also known as Kraken & Principessa. Cutter is a deadly and dangerous guy who does what he has to do and does it well. Valentina is strong, intelligent and independent so when Cutter saves her it throws her off completely. Cutter is supposed to be her enemy but ...more

Wow I loved Cutter and Valentina! These two are a force to be reckoned with. Their story has so many twists and turns, action packed and suspenseful. You will be sucked into their story and not able to put this down until you are finished. Their journey will resonate with you well after you are done. I love a book that keeps you guessing and what you think you know, you realize how wrong you really are, and the ending, never saw it coming. Without giving anything away, these two struggle with

This series just keeps getting better and better. I devoured this book and i was sucked into all of the awesomeness. There is twists and turns, I laughed and I cried throughout all of it.... i couldn't put it down.
I was excited to get Cutter's Story! He appeared in the first book and i knew i had to get my hands on his story and figure him out. He is such a great character and i was interested to see were his story would go. He meets Valentina and the chemistry between them is off the charts.

Cutter is scoping it out to find a way to be free of the Marconis, but especially Arturo, who doesn't seem to be playing by the same rules as Il Padrone. The action starts immediately and boy does the landscape take a big dive. Now, not only are they still in it big time, but things aren't looking good for them.
Valentina is looking out for Il Padrone, his bodyguard.  Suddenly, she's set adrift and looking for more answers.

Cutter is a special kind of a$$hole. With all that Cutter Jackson has been through though that makes sense. Valentina is a strong woman, who has come to America from Italy to do a job. As the story progresses we learn a little more about the complex relationship that the guys have with each other. Rogue Wave is full of adventure and violence, a fiery love and a unforeseen twist. Everything that makes for an amazing story.
I loved that we got a little more of these mens backstory. Cutter is a man
