Zane Cutter, the youngest brother of the Cutter clan, has finally hit pay dirt. His family has made a name for themselves in the salvage business. Every year he and his brothers bet on who will find the greatest treasure under the sea. This year is going to be his year. Zane found the wreckage of a Dutch ship. Unfortunately, as he’s getting ready to sail his mechanic is diagnosed with cancer, but there is an alternative.

Teal is the daughter of Zane’s mechanic and she just happens to have followed in her father’s footsteps becoming a fantastic mechanic herself. Teal is excited about the offer to become an engine mechanic for the Cutters until she learns its Zane’s boat she will be working on at sea. After a one night stand over a year ago that ended with her doing the walk of shame, the last person Teal ever wants to see again is Zane Cutter. However, after a huge guilt trip she agrees for one month only.

Zane may have a reputation as God’s gift to women but as much as he tries he can’t seem to get Teal to let him in. The more he’s around the sassy mechanic the more he wants her. Teal has had a thing for Zane since she was a kid but after their night together she wants nothing to do with him—at least that’s what she tells herself. A woman can only evade a man like Zane for so long on a ship.

Zane’s not the only one searching for treasure. The thought of riches brings out all kinds of characters eager to take their part of the treasure even if they have to hurt people to do it. Can Zane and Teal put their differences aside to find out who is sabotaging their treasure hunt before it’s too late?

Undertow is packed with sabotage, thievery, treasure, spies, a sexy heroine who is good with her hands and a handsome hero ready to fight for his woman. Undertow is one super exciting story. Cherry Adair spins an incredible story. It takes place largely on a ship at sea. The imagery is amazing. I felt like I was there with Zane and Teal. The underwater scenes are sensational. I was white-knuckling my ereader during those action filled scenes.

Teal and Zane are two incredible multi-layered characters. Teal is struggling with a lot of issues not just with Zane and their night together. I felt compassion for her and wanted her to find happiness with Zane more than anything. Zane comes off as a happy go lucky guy without a problem in the world everything just rolls off him, but he is also dealing with personal issues. Undertow uncovers the issues that lie between Zane and Teal and sheds light on their possible path to happiness if they are willing to take the chance. Whether it’s with their feisty banter or sensual seduction when these two are in a scene together they set it on fire. Undertow is a one of a kind high-stakes adventure that will have you gasping for air with its suspenseful scenes and begging for more of the Cutter brothers.

Princess Bria Visconti demands the return of the money her brother rashly invested in Cutter Salvage. Treasure hunter Nick Cutter is too reckless, too arrogant—and far too handsome—for his own good. 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.

Princess Gabriella Visconti is on a mission. Her brother the King of their small Italian country foolishly invested all of the country’s money in a treasure salvaging business. If her brother cannot pay the debt he owes their country will revert back to the Italian government. Bria cannot stand to watch the country that her beloved parents loved be lost. This is what brings Bria to Morocco. She is determined to get Nick Cutter the owner of the salvage company to refund her brother’s investment. If she only knew what she was getting into. 

Nick Cutter has his hands full impersonating a terrorist loyalist for T-FLAC and salvaging the largest treasure he’s ever discovered. His undercover assignment was supposed to be an easy in and easy out. Unfortunately, things quickly go awry as the princess boards the Scorpion, his salvage ship. Nick is completely uncooperative where the princess is concerned. She may turn him on but he’s not about to give her what she wants because he wants her. 

Conspiracy and secrets abound as danger lurks closer than anyone thinks. Bria becomes a target and Nick is determined to keep her safe and get her off his ship as soon as possible. Regrettably for Nick boulders keep getting dropped into his plans. He must stick by Bria’s side to keep her safe and find out who is behind the attacks. Can Bria change Nick’s mind about the investment money in time to save her country? Will these two sexy stubborn singles be able to keep their hands off each other the longer they are together? Who will survive Riptide?

Riptide is an intense action-packed adventure! Whoa, Nick comes off as such a cold hard-edged man. Bria is this vivacious, stubborn woman with plenty of secrets for Nick to ferret out. I liked watching Nick slowly thaw under Bria’s attentions. Nick and Bria sizzle so much they almost burn each other. The scenes where they are fighting are just as intense and irresistible as the ones where they make up. Cherry Adair has created a truly exciting world with her Cutter Cay books. Riptide explores the depths of the sea, the world of terrorism and even romantic Italy. I’m in love with the Cutter men and I’m excited to learn more about the long-lost brother they have recently discovered. 


Riptide is a turbulent thriller with high impact action and a fiery romance that captures the reader and doesn’t let go.
