Malibu Rising surprised me. I almost didn’t read the book because on the surface it didn’t look interesting, but I’m so glad I gave the book some time. The characters are lovable and for many relatable. The ending wraps up in one big whirl, but also in such a meaningful way.

Interesting premise, and the book kept me engaged until the end, but ultimately I did not end up caring for the characters as much as I wanted to. Nina's journey was perhaps the most interesting for me, but the flashbacks of June and Mick's relationship did not hold my attention for long. The latter half of the book introduces multiple characters and arcs for as little as two pages, which was intriguing at first, but quickly became tedious. The book also feels as if it is building up to many tense scenes, but eventually falls flat. All in all, it was a quick, light read, that served as a good distraction.
