Another gorgeous romance in this visit to Shelby Beach

Testing the Waters
by Skylar M. Cates

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a gorgeous romance from Skylar set in her Shelby Beach world and it just made me happy.

There’s two imperfect people, each with their own hang-ups and fears, seeking to move into a healthier and better place and finding their support in the other .

I loved both Jordan, a wonderful depiction of a non-binary MC who suffers with a perfectly understandable fear of the open water, and Zane, who on the outside looks like he’s fit and healthy but who is still in remission from cancer and hasn’t really mentally adjusted.

Together they slowly move from instant physical attraction into friendship and to love without there being any unnecessary dramady or angst for plot’s sake.

I loved all the secondary characters and there’s quite a bit of Leo and Julian from The Christmas Lights Battle. Now I’m hoping we’re going to get Oliver’s story next and possibly Tristan’s but I’d love to visit Shelby Beach again soon.
