It’s hard being a brainiac genius. Gina Gray knows this all too well. She wants nothing more than to get married, but finding the right guy- someone who isn’t intimidated by her intelligence- has left her with nothing but a broken heart.
Some of Gina’s expertise is in sonar. As in, under the water sonar used by submarines. As the sister of a sub commander, Gina’s sonar work was paramount in keeping him safe.
After a particular stunning and unexpected break up, Gina decides to head West to stay with her brother for a while; work, and try to mend her wounded heart. And see if her brother can recommend a guy for her.
Mark Bishop is one of Je Gray’s best friends, and also a submarine commander. He’s not surprised to see Gina, and can tell she’s using work as a distraction. Since Je is still underwater,- literally- Mark decides to keep an eye on Gina, knowing how dangerous her sonar work could be to her personal safety.
Mark, a widower, is also looking for love. Well, marriage, at least. After 10 years as a devoted and loving husband, he really misses not having anyone waiting when he comes home from sea. He misses everything about being a husband. When Je arrives home and casually suggests Mark think about dating his sister, Mark turns him down, thinking the age difference and friendship with Je would just be, well, weird.
And so, Daniel Field is introduced to Gina, and they get along really well. So well, in fact, that it’s not long before they are considered to be a couple, and Gina is invited to meet Daniel’s family.
As part of her work, Gina works closely with both Mark and Daniel, neither of whom mind that she now needs 24/7 security as a result of her discoveries. Maybe it’s because they work closely together; maybe it’s because she has a beau and is off limits, but Mark finds himself completely falling for Gina.
Without giving it away, you can obviously tell that at some point, Gina will have to chose between the two. Both are good men; good choices.
Because I have read other Dee Henderson titles, I was not deterred by what could be considered the “dry” beginning. Some might get bored by the dialogue; I thought it was great. The more I read, the harder it was to put down, and I found myself wondering about the scientific theories and wondering how plausible they were. I mean, I wondered if this WAS plausible, the book really ought to be classified. 😆
At one point, I realized the brother and wife being referred to were Charlotte and Bryce, from Unspoken. As with that title, one gets the feeling that the author is very knowledgeable about the topic, which I appreciate. Even if it’s all made up, the “facts” seem believable, and that makes a book thoroughly enjoyable for me.
As with her other title, if you are turned off by technical talk, this might not be the book for you. Again, like her other title, I loved it and am giving it 5 out of 5 stars. Dee Henderson goes on my “must read” author list. I received this book for free from Bethany House publishers (www.bethanyhouse.com) for this review.
You might really like the trailer. Definitely worth the 2 minutes. Go watch it. 😀[youtube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJe8pBiDUP0%5D
