it was ok

This was a book I was really hoping to love. I have a hard time finding F/F fiction and the premise of this was interesting. I really thought this might turn out to be a good partner romance where a bad situation makes two soldier friends realize they have more between them than they expected. Instead what I got was my most hated trope of them all - a vulnerable person falling in love with an abuser/manipulator and it being sold as a HEA when they ride off together into the sunset.

(view spoiler)

Relationships can bloom in the worst of places, but there was nothing about this story that told me what Cardinal and Natalie forged here has any chance of lasting. I didn't feel like this was a good romance story, but one that used a bad trope to contrive a situation where two women ended up together. It was competently written and I did make it all the way to the end, but it left me feeling annoyed and unsatisfied. I'm starving for good F/F fiction, but Spring Tide was sadly not what I was looking for.
