Unfortunately, the past refuses to be buried, and when she discovers that her sexy boss is her former lover, old wounds reopen and shake the walls she has so carefully built around her heart. Caine is offering her everything she’s ever wanted, but can she trust him? As they rekindle their passion in the bedroom, secrets rise up from Eden’s waters and threaten to tear them apart. Only by diving deeper can they move forward, and Jenna must decide if she is willing to risk her heart for a second chance at love.
Note: This story contains a contemporary male-female romantic pairing with mild kink.
She pressed her lips together for a moment in thought. “I know you, Caine. You’ll never be happy in one place. You live for the dive.”
“I’ll be happy if I’m with you.” He hooked his finger under a long strand of hair and pushed it over her shoulder.
“Don’t be ridiculous. You love adventure too much.”
“I love you, too.”
“You can’t give diving up. It’s in your blood.”
“It’s in your blood, too.” He inched closer. “Look, I don’t like what happened in Chicago, but can concede that you didn’t have my note and therefore had no idea of my true intentions. All of that is in the past. This is our present.” He inched forward. “Our future.”
She shook her head. “I can’t wait around for you to figure things out, Caine.”
“I already have everything figured out. I just need you to wait until the end of this job.”
“And what if another job comes along? What about Rex?”READ MORE
He slid his arms around her body and pulled her close. “What about us? Don’t you want to at least try?” He leaned forward and brushed his cheek against her temple. “Try for me, Jenna. That’s all I ask.”
“Why should I try, Caine?” She asked as she eased away. “I gave you my heart before, and you broke it into pieces. Give me one good reason why I should trust you again.”
“You want a reason?” He leaned back and shifted his gaze to her mouth. “Because every morning when I wake up, I think of you. Every night when I go to bed, I dream of us, and how good we could be together. Give me another shot, Jenna. Do it for me. For us.”
The kiss was hard and demanding, just the way she liked it. Damn him for knowing her needs, and damn her for falling for him all over again. Tears filled her eyes as she wrapped her arms around his neck and held on tight. The towel around her shoulders fell to the ground. Caine swept his tongue into her mouth, causing her to shiver with need. He tasted so warm, so good. Jenna knew if she let herself, she could sink deep into this man and never come up for air.
When he finally broke away, she took in a large, steadying breath. Through an erotic haze she watched Caine flash her a seductive smile, then push her backward into the pool.
“Hey!” Warm water hit her hard, and once again Jenna was struggling for breath. She popped back up to the surface and wiped the water from her eyes. When she could focus, she saw Caine pulling off the last of his clothes.
“What are you doing?”
“Making you remember how good we had it—and how good it could be again.”COLLAPSE

I wasn't sure how this story was gonna end and Suzanne Rock sure surprised the daylights out of me with this ending. Actually I was at the edge of my chair the whole way first she would lean this way and then sway the other. Another hit...
