Undertow [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Undertow" the 1st book in her Cutter Cay series by Cherry Adair.

Product Description


Teal Williams is content with her career as a ship’s master mechanic — until Zane Cutter, the “Casanova of the Caribbean,” makes her an offer she can’t refuse: to climb on board with him for a real-life treasure hunt. Teal must help him dredge up a shipwrecked vessel containing an abundance of gold, silver, and emeralds —and she’ll claim part of the prize.


Zane needs a mechanic — not a lover — and Teal, who can also dive, is perfect for the job. So it suits him just fine that Teal is completely immune to his charms…or so he tells himself. But with a deadly enemy in their midst — one who’s silently edging closer — Zane and Teal sink into troubled waters. Trapped in the middle of a perilous sea, they have no one to turn to but each other as they face down a danger that runs unfathomably deep — and a passion that runs even deeper…

My Review:

Storyline:  Zane is known as a playboy though his reputation has been exaggerated.  He's good-looking, charming and successful (everyone loves him) a perfect example of perfectness.  He gets his kicks by finding amazing shipwrecks and their sunken treasures.  Along with his two brothers he's known for his amazing finds.

His current find is the Vrijheid which is the motherload of sunken finds.  He needs an experience diving team along with a flawless mechanic to take care of his junk heap of a boat and no distractions.  He wants Teal Williams, who is the daughter of his aging and sick mechanic.  She's as good as her father and mousy so she won't be a distraction.

Teal came to Cutter Cay Island out of a sense of duty to her dying father whom she has never connected with.  She never agreed to go out to sea with Zane the star of her nightly dreams since childhood. She had given herself to him years in his drunken state (it was his father's funeral that day/night) and then the next morning he tossed her out without a backwards care.  She doesn't want a replay of that night and so she defends herself with a sharp tongue and hostile attitude.

Then things take a deadly turn when Zane finds out someone tampered with his boat and both Zane and Teal have to work together to survive.

Characters:  I really loved Zane's character because he's very caring about people especially one's he love.  he will protect them with his life and he knows what he wants.  I'm glad that he didn't leave Teal alone and went after her the way he did.  Loved the way he was protective of her.  He gets along with everyone and tries not to hurt women's feelings when they are coming on to him and he isn't interested!  Loved the way he loves his boat and defends her to everyone!

At first I didn't really like Teal's attitude because I thought she was being very harsh towards Zane. Then when I found out why she was acting that way then I understood why she was like that.  I started to warm up to her.

Romance:  Zane and Teal are great together.  I really wanted Teal to open up to Zane and see what a great guy he was.  When they finally got together it was quite steamy and I was really rooting for their HEA.

Killer(s):  They would kill anyone with no remorse and only for their own benefit.


Thanks Rita from H.B. Fenn and Company for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
