To make matters worse, she’s stuck in close quarters with her new captain—a man whose raw physicality drives her out of her mind with lust.
Free-spirited and roguish, Sam Lamont is a commercial fisherman aboard his own dive boat, the Bravado. When he makes a bad deal with a deadly loan shark who threatens to take his boat, Sam is in danger of losing both his business and his way of life. On top of that, he’s got to train his new deckhand—a beautiful hard-ass who just so happens to be sexy as hell.
A female sushi chef with mad knife skills. A deep-sea diver who’s pissed off a Mexican drug cartel. Together, they’re in trouble, and the only way out is down.
*AUTHOR’S NOTE* While this book is a part of a series, it can be read completely as a STANDALONE.
This was my first book by Mia and I have to say I was pretty happy with the style of writing the way the story flowed and how Mia managed to create great sexual chemistry / tension between the characters without it feeling over done I guess you’d call it. As for the characters Eve & Sam I enjoyed them, their development and I felt like they were really every day people which made them easier for me (personally) to relate to! I am definitely excited to check out more of Mia Hopkins work in the very beer future
