I liked this book. It is not another formula story with uber-graphic sex scenes to sell a weak plot. The characters and plot are really interesting. Ty is from a prominent family who disown him. His love interest is not out and comes from a family of a long line of Baptist preachers. Both are damaged persons, but their repair does not come from a pot boiler formula..There is danger and adventure which appeal to me. I was sorry when the book ended. I want to read more books of this author.

Review

Honestly, I have to review this book in two parts: the mystery and the romance. The romance part I'd have to give 2 stars and the mystery I'd give a 3.

The romance:
This book would have actually gotten a higher rating from me if it hadn't been an attempt at romance. The whole thing was kind of uncomfortable to read. Ty was the openly gay owner of a charter boat business. Cody was his extremely closeted, twenty-two-year-old employee. Ty finds himself exceptionally attracted to Cody, but he seems to be aware that Cody hasn't even admitted to himself that he's gay. Ty's inner dialog keeps stating that he doesn't mess around with employees, and he wouldn't make a pass at Cody because he was in the closet. Yet that's exactly what he does, several times. It shouldn't have mattered that Ty thought Cody was gay and just didn't want to admit it; no means no. It was borderline creepy that Ty kept making moves on his young employee.

Then there was Cody. Supposedly Cody is trying to deny that he's gay (although later on, he admits that he'd known from an early age). Even after he succumbs to one of Ty's many advances, his attitude about homosexuality is frankly unpleasant to read about, especially in a romance. He grew up Baptist and has all manner of notions that being gay is wrong, and he has an obligation to his family to get married and have kids the `normal' way.

It seemed like the two main characters went from this uncomfortable back and forth dynamic to insta-love. There wasn't much in between the two extremes. It didn't help that there weren't any physical love scenes in the book. While I wouldn't say a book has to have sex scenes to keep my interest, this one suffered from the lack of them.

The characters were well defined and the story develops at a reasonable pace. There might be a bit of convenience or luck in some of the connections, but the story holds together well. There is a promised HEA, or enough for the reader to think there could be.
