Malibu Rising is a masterpiece.
I fell in love with the multiple storylines from different characters and years - the back and forth, finding all the connections was incredible to read.
As my first TJR novel, I had high expectations and Malibu Rising certainly exceeded them! I loved the Riva family, full of all their drama, pain, and sorrow - they are absolutely magnetic!
A wonderful read that I’d recommend to many!
