Goodreads Synopsis: 
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 to put it behind her, until the dark haired, blue eyed hottie turns out to be her new co-supervisor Knight Mcallister. 

Knight is hot, 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.

My Review:

Summer's arrived and Rain Wilson is in a new town with a new job.  She left town with the intentions of never looking back, but there is one promise that she took with her: To never fall in love. Savannah's ex-boyfriend William died, and Savannah blames herself. She believes that she was the one who should have died. And now not only does she believe that she must remain loyal to William and now fall in love with anyone. She believes that it is her duty to come to the rescue to others. And as Senior Lifeguard  she takes her job and her promise very seriously. 

At a Bonfire the day before orientation for work, Savannah find herself attracted to a guy at the party, shes' not happy with herself for her feelings and before her body can betray her head, she dives into the ocean to cool off. Little does she know that the one she is trying to escape, not only is an excellent swimmer but also a co-senior lifeguard.

Knight is enjoying himself at the bonfire. There is a girl who has completely caught his attention, but before he can approach her she takes a run for it and dives into the ocean. Worried for her safety he runs after her and dives in to the water. They have an immediate connection and have a fun playing around in the water. And they share a kiss that takes them both off guard. 

Knightly also has a past relationship that he can't get over. His ex-girlfriend was raped and he blames himself for the rape. Like Savannah vowed to help others at all costs, Knight vowed to never allow another woman he loved to ever come in harms way. So when you have a girl desperate to gain atonement for her past and a man who insists on being a Knight in shining armor, start falling for each other things are bound to clash. 

This was another great summer story. As I read about Savannah's and Knight's adventures at work and a the beach, I felt like I was right there with them. My heart broke while re-living their pasts and each time I read about the guilt they both carried. I do have to make one comment regarding something that kind of peeved me in the book. Savannah found herself in several situations where she is being almost molested or attacked. I know that there are sick people out there, but I did not believe that one girl could encounter so many terrible situations in one summer. But all-in all this was a fun story and I enjoyed reading it! 


  1. a good summer read makes the season of the scorching sun so much more bearable..... its good to see you liked it
