Depths of Salvation
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?
This is my favorite of the series so far, but to be honest I say that after each one and then change when I read them over again. It had action, romance, suspense, a strong female, and a stubborn man who tries to protect her at all costs.
Sadie Jenkins is a marine preservationist trying to preserve a WWII era shipwreck site that is home to its own ecosystem of unique plant life and marine life. A major corporation wants to put their pipeline through the site and destroy everything she is trying to save. Enter Connell Murphey, a dive welder working for the corporation who is enlisted to help destroy her site.
These two have an immediate connection so strong you can feel it through the pages. Everything about this book comes down to the details and the story that is painted. Every part of this story kept me on the edge of my seat and I was completely immersed in this world diving along with them. I felt it all, the bends when she surfaced too fast, the rush and fear of chasing away the sharks, the intense connection with Connell, and the excitement every time they explored a new section of the ship. This book is one that you will read over and over again and pick up something new each time. It was one of my favorites of the year and I highly recommend diving in as soon as possible.
