Rain Wilson isn't ever going to love again.
It's a promise she made the day her boyfriend died in a water park accident, one she still blames herself for. Now she's a senior lifeguard in a new town with a new pool and she's just going to keep her head down and everyone safe.
Until a mysterious guy follows her into the waves at the pre-season bonfire and kisses her senseless. It's just one mistake, and Rain is determined t o put it behind her, until the dark haired, blue-eyed hottie turns out to be her new co-supervisor Knight McAllister.
Knight is got, tatted, and carrying baggage of his own. He's not happy about having Rain for a co-supervisor, and he's even less happy about his attraction to her.
But between lifeguard drama, hot underwater kisses, and a growing attraction between them that can't be stopped, Knight and Rain are being pulled deeper into their pasts, and realizing that sometimes too much broken can make a relationship impossible.
Then again sometimes it's the broken parts of us that fit together best.
I downloaded this book from Amazon when it was free because I thought the story sounded pretty good, plus I love free books! While this story wasn't bad, it wasn't great either. For some reason, it just didn't grab hold of me like I thought it might. I was still interested enough to continue reading it, and I'm glad I did. But it wasn't the best work I've read.
Rain and Knight are both interesting characters with a lot of baggage between the two of them. I think they made a pretty good pair as they were able to help each other work through their problems and start to come to terms with the events of their past. However, I thought the story could have been a little better developed. There was also a lot of talk about sex and rape in this book, which I'm not sure was completely necessary. Some of the parts were important to the story, but not all of them, so I think some mentions could have been cut out. I don't really have anything concrete to say that could have been better; it was a decent story that I liked, but didn't love.
