About: For Sid, the last thing he remembered was being enlisted to protect a vulnerable young woman in the coastal town of Sea Haven. Then, as if in some nightmare, the mysteriously sexy bodyguard was lost in the swirling currents of the ocean, and sucked deeper into the nothingness of a freezing black eddy. Just as quickly, just as miraculously, he was saved—pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger.Her name is Rikki, a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven. She always felt an affinity for the ocean, and the seductive pull of the tides. And now, for the enigmatic man she rescued. But soon they will be bound by something even stronger—each other’s tantalizing secrets which will engulf them both in a whirlpool of dizzying passion and inescapable danger
What I Loved: This book delivered with everything that I expected! Christine has a knack for writing about love between a man and woman (often how it is unexplainable) but also a love between families (born to or formed). This book is no exception! This book is not only the love story between Rikki and Lev but also the story of how she began to trust because of 5 other special women in her life. Her sisters, not by birth, but by heart!
What I Liked: I really liked how she wove in the past Sea Haven stories without making it about them. There is a point where you know later in the series, Lev is going to have to deal with something between him and Jackson (that is my mild spoiler) but I liked that she left that till later. I also love that Christine tend to write where the men need the women just as much(if not more) than the women need the men. I like how they just accept each other for who they are and work through it!
What I thought was So-So: Nothing
Why I gave it a 4: To be honest, I hovered between 4 and 5 while trying to decide. The only reason it ended up a 4 was because I felt it took a little to long in the middle to bring in the rest of the family. Other than that, it pretty much rocked!
Who I would recommend this too: I recommend this to PNR readers and even some romance readers. It is not about vampires, werewolves, ect but it is about “magic” for lack of a better term. Also, I have found that people either love Christine’s writing or don’t! This is a very typical (stellar) Christine Feehan book. I loved it but I love her writing so keep that in mind!
