Rydell Case’s ship is his home, his heart, and his reason for being. After his ex-wife left him—taking his brand-new megayacht, Tesoro Mio with her—she sailed off with a royal billionaire and out of his life forever. Now Ry spends his days searching for treasure—until his ship is hijacked. With the prospect of his salvage business tanking, he needs both the ship and his ex back—if only she didn’t despise him more than any man on earth. . .
When Addison D’Marco boards Tesoro Mio to find her ex-husband in her cabin, she’s furious. Ry is more handsome, more annoying, and more determined than ever. Addy can’t believe he has the nerve to demand the ship back after the way he broke her heart. With her fiancé about to board, she doesn’t want Ry back in her life to ignite painful memories and never- forgotten desires. But could it be that, amid troubled waters, Addy and Ry can salvage what they once had and have a second chance at love. . .or does fate have something else in store?
Wow sometimes mothers are just plain too much to deal with.... this book is full of hidden agendas, misunderstandings, lost love, and intrigue.
For leading men, Rydell is on the top of my list. He's intense, broken, deeply in love, and struggling to win back the only woman he will ever love. There is an intensity to his personal story and how he goes about rectifying mistakes that are intentional and unintentional. I loved how focused he was on saving his company and getting his ex back. I heard about him in Stormchaser (Cutter Cay #4) and was curious about his story.
As far as leading ladies go, I'll be honest here and say that I really didn't like Addison even though I understood her hurts. There was such a hardness in her that I couldn't understand. Towards the end of the book I finally connected with her and I was thrilled with how quickly she understood what happened to end her marriage and how she confronted everyone involved to find her personal resolution. Then I got to see the amazing women Rydell loved. the author did an outstanding job in this character both in the beginning and end of the book.
This book was filled with many twists and turns and because of the personal interaction between Rydell and Addison I give this 4 STARS.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
