About the Book:

Mandy Hardy lost more than a breast to cancer; she lost her fiancĂ© when he dumped her a week before her mastectomy. Her ego bruised and her self-esteem battered, Mandy’s sure she’ll never fall in love again. 

Justin Seward is a headstrong Coast Guard Rescue Swimmer with a heart of gold and the supernatural ability to command the seas. He had to hide his feelings while Mandy was engaged to his best friend. Now that she’s free, he’s vowed to make her his. 

Together, they may hold the key to each other’s salvation. But when Justin’s past catches up with him, and Mandy’s ex-fiancĂ© wants vengeance, they realize they might not live long enough for happily ever after.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book! It was a nice change to read an adult paranormal romance. But this is an adult novel and not suited for young readers.
A lot is happening in this book. There are several events that take place during this book and the main dish if you could call it that is love story and the side dish is the paranormal part among other things. This book had a really beautiful love story, but as any good love story there was a lot of obstacles to overcome. 
I loved Many and Justin! They are both really strong characters and lovable but they do have their insecurities which just makes you like them more.
Even though this was a paranormal novel it felt really down to earth and sometimes it is good to not overdue it. I liked it a lot and I found myself not wanting it to end when it did.
