Cole is mesmerized by the sensual delicate Dylan who worshipped him on their very first night.
Bummer when they realized Cole is a guest at Dylan’s Inn. This can’t happen again!
But oh boy the attraction is ridiculously strong, they can’t resist each other.

Cole has business in town, building a new resort. Big plans with consequences for Dylan’s Inn.
A business he can’t tell Dylan.
Cole is the first man Dylan is interested in for years, after a bad experience he was reserved but now, he longs for Col

Turning Tide, the third book in the Changing Tide series is another intriguing read by Bryce Winters. I am thoroughly enjoying this small town series.

This tale is one of suspense, intrigue, and mystery, as someone is framing Dylan for the damage at the resort's construction site.

It's a tale of lies by omission, as Cole doesn't want to tell Dylan who he is. After all, how does one tell the man they are having sex with, that they are someone who's brought problems to his town?

Turning Tide was a good standalone within a series set in a small seaside town in Oregon. I really liked the setup of this story and felt invested in Dylan and Cole’s happily-ever-after.

Dylan and Cole start as a one-night-stand, but quickly find they want to go back for more. While this isn’t a new, unique meet-cute, it worked well. I liked the way their casual relationship morphed over the course of the book and how the author transitioned their physical chemistry to a deeper bond. I a

Sweet, Romantic, Low Angst - Great Story!

I loved this story. I really wanted to give it 5 full stars but I had to ding it a half star; but I'll get to that in a minute. It's the third book in the Changing Tides series but stands on its own fairly well. However, for the most enjoyment I really recommend reading the series in order. I have to admit that I didn't read the first book but I wish I had. Not because I couldn't follow the story in books two and three, but because I know I missed a great

4.5 Stars

After getting to know Dylan as a side character, it’s now his turn to find love. Not that he’s looking. In fact, it actually found him.

One night stands are supposed to just be night, and quite often you don’t see them again. Oops. Life is funny sometimes. Turns out Dylan’s ONS (Cole) is actually a guest at his bed and breakfast. Big oops. Dylan doesn’t make a habit of mixing business with pleasure, especially since being put through the wringer, emotionally and physically, wi

After reading Time and Tide I was excited to see what was next in the town of Seaside, and this story did not disappoint! Cole and Dylan's journey was full of fiery chemistry, sweet romance, and an undercurrent of mystery. I loved the B&B owner/guest dynamic--especially the way Cole and Dylan tried so hard to keep their hands off each other but still succumbed to their intoxicating chemistry. The dash of pain play added such a delightful twist on their lovemaking, and I was practically gleeful w ...more

We finally come to Dylan's story and man, what an absolute gem it is. He had rules in place about knowingly sleeping with a guest at the Inn as he had been badly burned before but Cole manages to slip under his defences and have a very hot night. Cole is in town to oversee the mega monstrosity that is literally just outside the Inn's doorstep and it's development and that comes with a whole heap of issues. When Dylan is implicated in a crime it causes tension between him and Cole and unearths a ...more

Very enjoyable read.

This is the third book in the series but can be read as a standalone. Once again the author has gifted us with a well written small town romance that’s an absolute joy to read. The likeable main characters, Dylan and Cole, have lots of layers to them and side characters from the previous books pop in to play their part.
Dylan and Cole have an instant urgent attraction towards each other and the sizzling heat level is testament to that chemistry.

Such an exquisite ending to this series!

I never thought in reading books 1 & 2 that Dylan would have such a heart breaking history. While reading the previous books, it appears that he is a solid friend that runs a successful inn. He's a smiling, friendly face that will feed you when you're in need of a meal, be a shoulder to cry on, and provide you with a gentle nudge with different perspective.

Cole is a well off gentleman who is getting to know Dylan while having a secret of his own. In spit

I so expected to like this one more. I loved the second one so much, this felt a bit eh for me. Dylan was an intriguing character in book two. He was an incredibly supportive friend to Lincoln, and I love the whole small business owner in a small town vibe. What didn't work for was Cole's inability to be truthful to someone whom he knew had an issue with being vulnerable and had already experienced betrayal from a partner. Then there was the whole plot with Cole's job that was resolved far too q ...more

A nice end to the series. With the third book in the Changing Tides series, we finally get Dylan's story. Dylan is the owner of the bed and breakfast where characters from books 1 and 2 stayed. He has been through a lot and almost lost his B&B in the past. Cole comes to town to help build the new hotel going in across the street. He just fails to mention that he is the one that partially owns the company that is building it. With an omission like that, you know the two are going to have a rocky ...more

I am old enough to be one of the original John Denver fans, and ages ago he made a movie called The Christmas Gift where the representative for a real estate developer comes to a magical little town, stays at an inn and falls for the town and a local woman all the while hiding the secret that his boss is going to build a resort and destroy the town's charm. Loved the feel of that movie that obviously had a happy ending and when I found this book which moves the setting from snowy Christmas to a ...more

Cole and Dylan have an instant attraction for each other. Dylan is the owner of The Changing Tides and promised himself that he’d never sleep with a guest, but he cannot seem to stay away from Cole. Cole is hiding secrets, he’s behind the new resort coming to town. I loved the mystery and suspense within the story line. I have loved the Changing Tides story line. I was so glad to see Dylan get his HEA, he’s been woven throughout all the stories and he deserved one. This was a beautiful, well wri ...more

This was a supersweet and quick read! I love stories that take place in hotels or with hotel staff so this was right up my alley. It was pretty low angst and more feel good than anything and I loved that. Dylan and Cole had a lot of chemistry and I like how they didnt rush back into things after the first night. They were hot and sweet, and an adorable couple! Im so satisfied with their happy ending as well. The plot and the characters were all fleshed out very well so that made the story even m ...more

Highly recommended love story with laughter, tears, and sexy times.

I am so glad that Dylan finally got his HEA. He has been such an integral part of the series so far but he was always on he outside looking in. The storyline and development of his relationship with Cole was beautifully done and the added details and characters from previous books made it a pleasure to read. This review is an honest and unbiased reflection of my thoughts after reading an ARC. However, I fell in love with the seri

I liked Dylan in the previous books, especially the last one, so I am so glad we got to know him a lot better and watch him find happiness. There was generally low angst in this, and I loved that. Cole was staying at the Inn hooked up with Dylan before they realized he was a customer. They tried to stay away, but their attraction and connection was strong. They were great together. I liked the inclusion of the other characters. It was great getting caught up with everyone. I enjoyed this a lot. ...more

Turning Tide was a cute ending to the Changing Tides trilogy. Dylan has been a character in the previous two books so it was fun getting to know him better. Cole made a great addition as well. I loved their journey from a one night stand to a real relationship. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely read the trilogy again. The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 was the ending seemed a little abrupt. Their was vandalism at the job site and it was a bit if a mystery but then the solut ...more

Dylan has a one night stand with a gorgeous stranger. I have loved Dylan from the start, he is sweet and loyal and hard working. Cole sweeps him off his feet but just as fast can pull a rug off those feet. I enjoyed their building relationship, their chemistry 🔥 and suffered over what would happen when Cole’s secret is known. Sweet small town love 💕 gotta read it!

Changing Tides for Love

As book three in this series I was so enjoyed to read Dylan and Cole’s story. It did not disappoint. Loved the storyline it was a little nail biting but as always the secrets are reviled and the characters love shines through. Loved there romantic adventure and hope there is more of this series to come.

This was a good end to a sweet series. I loved seeing the couples from the previous books return. This could be read as a standalone, but it definitely is better after reading the first two books, as you get to know everyone better, especially Dylan who is a recurring character. I definitely enjoyed this series.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily gave my honest review.
