Sadie Jenkins’ most recent site of preservation is a sunken WWII cargo ship off the coast of the Bahamas. When a giant corporation threatens to blow it up to make way for an underwater gas pipeline, Sadie is forced to prove to the Head of Government the importance and value of her site. And when assistance comes from a bad-boy welder who works for the corporation, she ends up battling not only the people trying to demolish her site, but her heart as well—because its latched on to the one man who can save her ship or destroy it. Connell Murphey is the best underwater welder this side of the Atlantic and thrives when the stakes are highest. When Slade Industries offers him a dangerous gig with a big pay off, he can’t wait to sign on. When a local marine preservationist gives Slade trouble—her site’s protection would cost him millions to go around it instead of through it—Slade offers Connell the deal of a lifetime: twelve million has his name on it if he gets close to Sadie and testifies to the Head of Government that her site isn’t worth saving. Should be easy money. That is, until he meets Sadie. She’s a force to be reckoned with and the only woman who has ever been able to not only keep pace with him on a dive but completely surpass him on every level. She’s smart, sexy, and their chemistry is off the charts. The more he gets to know her, the harder he falls but he’s already in too deep with the deal he made with Slade. When the time comes, will he be able to turn down the money and choose the girl of his dreams, or will too many lies kill his only chance at forever?  

Sadie is trying her best to protect a sunken WWII ship that houses some algae with promising medical qualities.  Her preservation efforts are being threatened by a underwater gas line from Slade Industries that is pushing to go through her site.  Connell works for Slade as a welder and is told to work with Sadie by Slade in order to get the pipeline put in place (he has his reasons).  Sadie does not realize that he is there to thwart her efforts, which becomes a problem later on.  As the two of them explore the dive site more and more, their attraction to each other also grows more and more.  Suddenly Connell realizes how much he cares about Sadie (and the feeling is mutual). and knows the damage his arrangement with Slade can cause.  Sadie is under the gun (sometimes literally) to prove that her site is worthy of being saved and has to learn if she can trust Connell when things go south.
I have to say that this book is full of adventure and I think this is Lee's best book.  I felt like I was right there with Connell and Sadie as they explored the ocean floor and each other.  The pace was perfect and all of the background information seemed plausible.  The chemistry with Connell and Sadie was to die for and I did not want this story to end.  This book will keep you on your toes when Slade is involved and when there is a twist with Connell's backstory.  There are a lot of emotions involved and the stakes are very high for both Connell and Sadie.  I am so glad I was able to receive an early copy of this book.  I can't wait for more from this author and the adventures she sends us on!
