When you can't trust yourself, how can you ask anyone else to?

It's been months since Aden Colt left the Army, and still the memories haunt him. When he moved into a tiny boat off the California coast, he thought he'd found the perfect place to escape life. Then Sawyer shows up and turns his simple life upside down. Beautiful and sophisticated, she seems out of place in this laid-back beach town. Something is pushing her to experience everything she can—including Aden. But as much as he wants her, starting a relationship with Sawyer puts them both at risk. For Aden, the past doesn't stay there; it shows up unexpectedly, uncontrollably, and doesn't care whose life it wrecks.

Oh no, fuck no!

I thought he was kidding. I should’ve known better. Aden’s intentions with me since I stupidly boarded this boat have been my torment for his enjoyment. He loved watching me squirm over the bait tank and when I proved I wouldn’t shy away from a challenge, he pulled out the big guns. From his flirty smiles to his teasing touches, he’s discovered my weaknesses and is exploiting them for his own entertainment.

Now this? Raw fish probably still warm from fighting for its life.

And now I’m God knows how many feet above water sitting on a two-seater bench held up by rusty ladders and staring down a piece of glistening pink meat.

“You have to eat it, it’s a rite of passage.” He offers the meat to my lips and I quickly turn my face away.

“I’m really not hungry.” As if the idea isn’t enough to turn my stomach, watching him clean the fish before sectioning off enough for lunch wasn’t much of an appetite builder.

“Of course you are.” He brings the piece to his own mouth and takes a bite, closing his eyes with a moan as he chews.

I feel a rush of bile hit my throat, or maybe it’s beer, either way it’s warm and it burns. “That’s disgusting.”

“You’re telling me you don’t like sushi?”

My eyes widen. Sawyer would say she’s never had sushi. But Celia’s a different story. She ate a live cricket in the eighth grade on a dare. She didn’t even flinch. “I like sushi, just not directly from the…um…source.”

“Doesn’t get fresher than this.” He takes another bite and I can’t deny that his response to eating it does give it some appeal.

“I think I need soy sauce or that green stuff.” What’s it called?

“Just try it.”

“I really don’t want to.”

“Oh come on.” He smiles in that cute crooked way that makes my heart dip and dive. “Live a little.”

I chew the inside of my mouth debating the cost/benefit of taking a bite of this fresh-out-of-the-ocean fish. On one hand, I’ll impress Aden. That in and of itself is worth the ick factor. But what if I throw up all over his boat? Is the chance of impressing him worth totally humiliating myself? I groan when I realize what I’m doing, exactly what I swore I wouldn’t do. I’m making an internal pros and cons list. I close my eyes and steel my resolve and my spine. Don’t think, just decide. I pop open my eyes followed by my mouth.

“Yeah?” He stares at my parted lips.

I nod, hoping he’ll hurry before I change my mind.

Lifting the rose-colored flesh forward, he places it between my teeth. It’s a small bite so I close my lips around his fingers expecting him to pull away…but he doesn’t. For a moment I’m suspended in his gaze, totally stuck while his hot fingers rest between my lips. This should be grossing me out; after all, I watched him gut this fish with his bare hands and to wash off all the blood he merely dipped them into the ocean. But all the thoughts of raw fish and a stranger’s finger do nothing to stave off the warmth blooming in my belly. My tongue pulls the meat deeper into my mouth, brushing against the rough pad of his forefinger. He bites his lip but finally drops his hand.

He watches intently while I chew and swallow.

“How was it?” His voice is low and gruff.

Lost in the heated moment, I barely tasted it. “Good.”

His hand cups the back of my head and he pulls me toward him, stopping just short of our lips touching. “I can’t fucking take this anymore.” His breath is sawing in and out, bursting against my mouth with impatience. “Let me.” It’s a demand, not a question.

A kiss. I don’t need to channel Celia or flip a coin…I know what I want.

I lick my lips and close the slight distance between us.




Aden Colt walked away from the Army after a devastating accident took the lives of soldiers in his unit and with each step he took the survivors guilt was right there alongside of him, constantly rattling him, and taunting him. He needs something to quiet the beast raging inside of him, so he moves onto his uncle's boat, and spends his days numbing his pain with alcohol, fishing, and his nights sharing a bed with nameless, faceless women. Drowning himself in booze numbs the pain, but the beast is still there lingering, reeking havoc on his soul, and it's turned him into a surly man. But then a beautiful breath of fresh air wanders into his life, and turns things upside down... and suddenly he feels like he has something to look forward to!

To say that Sawyer Forrester is wound a little tight is a complete understatement, everything in her life is planned down to the letter on her schedule, and she doesn't do it if it isn't on the list. But then her terminally ill sister throws her for a loop when she asks to her to make an unplanned trip to San Diego to gather her belongings, and while she is there his sister wants her to throw caution to the wind and do something that isn't planned for once. So, Sawyer reluctantly heads to San Diego, and unexpectedly meets a man that rattles her carefully world, in the best possible way!

After reading the first paragraph of this book I knew I had discovered something really special, it struck a cord with me right off, and started stirring the emotions. The touching story line grabbed a hold of me & my heart broke a little for these two characters, but little by little they gave me hope that they would be able to overcome their issues and find a little well deserved happiness. And without giving too much away I will say I was really pleased with how the story turned out, but it wasn't without lots of hard fought hurdles along the way. Once again I am left completely in awe of the writing talents of Ms. Salsbury, she completely blew me away with  this one, her beautiful story tugged on my heartstrings and left me inspired!! Highly recommend this one, it's definitely one of the best reads I have settled down with this year!!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
