Book blurb:
Laura Bellamy is a rising star at her San Francisco company. She is smart, beautiful, professional, respected, and driven to succeed. Unfortunately, the greater her success grows, the more her husband’s insecurities are revealed. The couple has been married only three years since busy Laura took a chance on finding love on an internet dating website. 

But once the honeymoon ended, the more she tried to make their marriage succeed, the more Greg’s true colors stained their crumbling relationship. He is jealous, paranoid, and cruel. Adding to their pressure-cooker marriage, he focuses his insecurities into pressuring his wife to start a family and give up the career that makes her happy.

Laura has worked with the same company for longer than she’s known her husband. In that time, not only has she loved her career, she’s also enjoyed her friendship with Mason Paladino: a fellow executive who is witty, sophisticated, and a bit of a goofball who sports a gorgeous swimmer’s body. For too long, the friends have suspected they share romantic chemistry, but neither will break their vows. If the right conditions present themselves, will they act on their simmering desires? Would it be wrong to deny their love? Can Laura trust her heart to show her the right path after failing miserably with her husband?

When Greg’s insecurities push him over the edge from cruel to criminal, will Laura stay, or end the toxic relationship? And if he catches her with a new man, how far will his anger drive his actions to tear them apart?

Find out what happens to Laura and Mason in Hard as Mason, book one of the Sultry Tides series by Cindy B. Wells. 

Well, DRAMA is what this book is. A great read and powerful emotions that pull you in. Greg, well crazy doesn't even begin to describe this man. Laura should have ran from the start but she tried to make it work. Mason's relationship is not so bad but, he is growing apart from his wife. When both file for divorce, they can let themselves feel for one another and the beautiful romance really begins. Then Greg's crazy starts to show for real! This is where the real DRAMA starts. A very great read with an oh my god ending, that will leave you begging for round 2.
