There was hardly any courtroom drama in this one. Jake's continual crap luck with his choice of women continues but to I have absolutely loved this series but I really struggled with this book. Jake's continual crap luck with his choice of women continues but to be honest, I wouldn't have him any other way.
It sure makes for some good reading.
Jun 20, Zak rated it did not like it. I read 5 of Jake Lassiter series or shoulders I say tried to read because I like legal thriller ever since John Grisham made me a fan of his but this is the crappiest series I have ever read, i mean it's okay when it stays within courtroom or around the case but all that macho crap, chasing skirts,screwing friends and clients' wives and also all of the books should have been a lot shorter Oct 18, Steve Black rated it really liked it Shelves: prime-library-read.
OK, so Jake Lassiter novels aren't great literature but they sure are entertaining. The usual fast pace, client needing help, damsel in distress and hating the day job are reliably present as ever, and the story line is far-fetched. Still an enjoyable read and the comfort of most of the regulars. Oct 12, Prescottl rated it really liked it.
Aug 25, Veronica Lindsey rated it really liked it. Good, fast-paced thriller. Disappointing book. However, on Amazon in one review it says this was his first book and was "fitted in" as a fifth book. Not up to the first four. Sep 03, Carl rated it did not like it. Not nearly as good as the others. I think I read somewhere this was a first book of his.

This may be a strange thing to take away from this book, but as I was reading, I was repeatedly struck with the breadth of knowledge that the author displays. He knows about lawyering and football, sure, but he also knows about windboarding and weather and geologic history, and you can tell from the words that he uses that he understand how things are built and how they come apart -- structures and people.
And his Latin doesn't suck. It's a smart guy writing these books, about another smart guy This may be a strange thing to take away from this book, but as I was reading, I was repeatedly struck with the breadth of knowledge that the author displays. It's a smart guy writing these books, about another smart guy who lets his heart drag him down into being a dumb guy because Jake Lassiter has seriously terrible taste in women.
It's too bad, because he's almost exactly the guy I would pick for my sister to marry if I were queen of the world for a day. He would be a great catch, because he is loyal to the uttermost; you can try to pitch him off a cliff, and he'll try to see the good side of that, bless his heart. And he makes for a good read because you can sit there hoping he will figure it out, hoping that maybe you got it wrong, and she didn't really do that horrible thing that is breaking his heart. And you get all this without the book getting all touchy feely; I hate that!
It's a plainly told story of a guy with a heart of gold that makes the girls want to rip it out of his chest.

It consists of bundles of legal papers and 'coupons,' redeemable the first of every month at any bank. Violet wonders what the heck she stuffed into her bag.
It's a lot of money and she guesses there are more coupons in the other cabinet drawers. She and a friend plan to find out. He's right, and soon Lassiter will be tracking a killer from Miami to Bimini, then on to Maui. This is another thriller which is gripping and captivating.

Jan 25, Rosemary Cantrell rated it it was ok. I really didn't like this book. I certainly won't bother reading and of the other of the Jake Lassister series. I thought the characters were not well-developed, despite what other reviewers seem to be saying. Jake was irritating and I really thought that someone who was supposed to be such a hot shot lawyer would have a brain or two.
I thought he was naive and ridiculously dense, especially regarding the girl. Even the plot was boring. There were good elements here that might have developed I really didn't like this book. There were good elements here that might have developed into an interesting story and interesting characters, but it sure didn't happen for me!
Jan 07, Lynnette Phillips rated it liked it. Not his best! I didn't find any of those qualities in Riptide. I even began to wonder if I'd mistaken the author for someone else. In all fairness the book started out impressively with well developed characters and a plot with great potential. Then my interest began to peter out. I lost the Not his best!
