Ocean activist, Trace Latimer has fought for over twenty-five years for the sea otters, penguins, and all sea life, but she’s exhausted and angry at the big shots who always win. But when a cold-hearted businessman orders the demolition of her childhood home, she has to face the biggest fight of her life.
After a bureaucratic nightmare overshadowed his most recent project, entrepreneur Dustin Hawk is fed up. He liquidates his Seattle demolition business and warms to his best friend’s sunny Florida hotel project. Despite his fear of the ocean, he finds himself swimming in shark-infested small-town politics and fears he might drown.
Trace and Dustin face off for a fight which they are both determined to win. But they find themselves in unexpected waters when they have to choose between their convictions or their hearts’ desires.

“Loved the next installment of this group of best friends from a small town. You don’t need to read the one before it to enjoy this one but it helps you understand some of the dynamics. This was a fast read and you are sucked in right from the beginning.”

“I think this was a new twist on a beach read. It had all the usual components, a beach house, close friends, relationship issues but it also took into account a different look at current issues, loyalty to home and more. I enjoyed it!”

She blinked and took shallow breaths. “I do. God help me, but I do believe you.” She lunged into him, wrapping her arms around his neck and kissing him.
He stood, holding her tight, and kissed her back.
A kiss that shattered him. Broke him into a thousand pieces of nothing. But when she clung to him, the pieces glued back together. Together in a new way. A way that made him a better man, whole for the first time in his life.
