After some trouble in California, Jo Mercer’s pro surfing career has tanked. She has just arrived home at the oceanfront beach house where she grew up and runs into her brother’s best friend, and her secret crush. Rays just returned from surfing and has just racked his board when he spies Jo. During their conversation, she’s discovered he’s become a firefighter where her deceased father was captain. Ray’s unexpected romantic gestures knock her off kilter. She’s also scared to reveal the real reason she’s returned home.
He smiled then checked his diver’s watch. “Damn, I’d love to stay and catch up, but I’m picking up a partial shift. You’re here for a few days, aren’t you?”
