But he can't charm his way out of this one. Bria plans to make Nick pay up even if she has to board his boat, don a wet suit, and dive for the treasure herself…
Nick sees Bria as a beautiful but spoiled princess who's never done a day's work in her pampered life. But once they set sail for the dive site, and the legendary fortune in gold the wreck carries, Nick begins to see Bria in a new light. This princess may be out of her depth, but she's ready to take on the hidden danger and excitement a treasure hunt stirs to the surface. Together they must fight unexpected enemies—and reveal their darkest secrets—before they're pulled into a rip current of danger.

The Hero

Nick Cutter, is one of the Cutter brothers, and is as close to them as anyone can be. He considers them to be his closest friends and partners in their business Cutter Salvage. Nick knows diving like its breathing air, Nick and his closest friend, are working together on their latest salvage project. Nick Cutter, is logical and is well nicknames as “spock” for his mannerisms and personality that is very similtar to the fictional character. Nick Cutter is the brother I was most excited to read. After seeing him in the first book, I loved mostly his relationship with his brothers, but I also admired his tenacity and his practical manner. What we see in this story is quite a bit more depth to him, and we see a side of him that we don’t see in the first book. A side of him that Bia brings out in him….a man that can be playful and sweet.

The Heroine

Bia, is a princess, but when she was a girl her parents were murdered by terrorists who were after their country, and she barely made it out of there alive. She was raised in the states, by her bodyguard, who was more like a father to her. Bia, the moment learning of her brother’s foolish decisions that will cost them everything they have gained recently, she will fight for their country, even if her brother won’t see reason. What I really admired about Bia is her determination to save what is left of her family. She is strong willed, passionate, intelligent and driven. She beautiful both on the inner part of herself and on the outside. Her personality was easy to be endeared to, and I loved the way she fights for what she believes in. She has this zest for life that is contagious.

Plot and Story Line

Riptide is the second book in this quartet of brothers. Riptide is Nick’s story. In this story, we have quite a bit that happens in this story and I savored every moment that Cherry Adair gives us. The more I read this author, the more I get hooked on her writing style. She has a way of being addicting and I get drawn into the story. I was quite drawn into Undertow from the beginning scene. Where we see how determined each character is, and I loved the way that they interact which was quite amusing. This scene is captivating and draws the reader immediately into the story. We see a intense level of mystery and danger. What I found quite unique, is seeing the plot unravel and reveal some sub plots that you don’t expect to find. I felt a thrilling excitement in reading this story and I found myself more and more intrigued and fascinated with each plot development and the depth of characteristics that becomes revealed.

This is a story that was quite addicting, and I love how this author sweeps me away into a story of adventure, danger and passion!!! A STORY OF THRILLS!!

The Cover

What a great cover. I love the sunset backdrop, with the circle of sharks, and it definitely adds a perfect match for this exciting story!!

Overall View

Riptide is a stunning story that connects to the reader. A story packed with intensity, passionate desire and stimulating moments to creature a powerful story of dramatic love.
