This book was so exciting I didn't want to put it down. Everyone wanted in on this dive site. Some wanted the treasure and some wanted something else. But I won't give that away. There were enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. This first book in the series has set the bar high. Can't wait to see what the second book in the series is about. ( )

Loved the hunk and the female boat mechanic. Cherry gets the pulse rate up again! ( )

Salvager Zane Cutter is in desperate need of a mechanic and Teal Williams fits the bill – she can “speak” to engines, dive and seems immune to his charms. Everything is perfect, or so Zane believes until he discovers the fascinating woman behind Teal’s cold façade. Can these two deal with their growing attraction as well as with the dangers inherent to seeking treasure in the Caribbean?

A sizzling romance against an exciting backdrop but the suspense plot fall a little flat.

The treasure hunt atmosphere and salvage is interesting and well written. However, the suspenseful aspects of the story are weak. To begin with, there are two separate threats to Zane’s salvaging expedition. The first, involving modern day pirates bent on stealing the treasure for themselves, is appropriate if predictable, but the sudden inclusion of a second subplot revolving around espionage and government agents just takes things too far.

Nevertheless, Teal and Zane are incredible characters and their chemistry more than makes up for the pitfalls of the suspense plot. Teal is an amalgamation of opposites – a boat mechanic who suffers from seasickness; a tomboy who hides her beauty and sensitivity behind a mask of dry wit and sarcasm. It is entertaining to watch her thaw out in the face of Zane’s sexy intensity and it is just as fun seeing Zane struggle to seduce the one woman that he truly wants.

Adair’s writing style is engaging and the dialogue between Teal and Zane is witty and charming. Despite the problems with the plot development, Undertow is a fast-paced and entertaining read. I look forward to reading the next books in the series centering on Zane’s brothers. ( )

I absolutely loved the beginning, watching Zane and Teal's verbal sparring and getting to know more about them: the prickly, damaged Teal and charmingly obnoxious Zane. The backstory elements started getting a little repetitive towards the middle, but I was still enjoying watching them unlearn/relearn each other.

Then, when the angst was about to reach its peak and it looked like Zane and Teal were about to start talking about/working through some of their issues a whole new storyline was added, complete with spies and secret computer files and a desperate race against time blah blah blah.

So, instead of watching the h/h work out their relationship issues we get chases and explosions, etc., to the point where 3 pages before the end of the book Teal is planning to leave Zane without telling him (before he can dump her first) and magically this time when Zane tells her he loves her she believes him -- despite his long history of falling in and out of love within the space of a month and her deep-seated trust and abandonment issues.

So, while I loved the beginning and enjoyed the middle, the end left me with an unsettling sense of Huh? ( )

Undertow is a romantic adventurous action book that is focused around deep sea treasure hunting and is the first book in Cherry's Cutter Cay series. Cherry does a wonderful job of painting the picture of what it feels, sounds and looks like to be deep sea diving and what you could only imagine what a hundreds year old ship wreck would look like at the bottom of the ocean. Zane Cutter and Teal Williams are both very likable characters who she puts through the ringer, first with someone stealing treasure right under their noses. Then something else happens that causes even more trouble than they could imagine and has them both fighting for their lives and relying on each other for survival and falling in love. ( )

Haiku summary

"Teal Williams is content with her career as a ship's master mechanic--until Zane Cutter, the 'Casanova of the Caribbean,' makes her an offer she can't refuse: to climb on board with him for a real-life treasure hunt. Teal must help him dredge up a shipwrecked vessel containing an abundance of gold, silver, and emeralds--and she'll claim part of the prize. Zane needs a mechanic--not a lover--and Teal, who can also dive, is perfect for the job. So it suits him just fine that Teal is completely immune to his charms...or so he tells himself. But with a deadly enemy in their midst--one who's silently edging closer--Zane and Teal sink into troubled waters. Trapped in the middle of a perilous sea, they have no one to turn to but each other as they face down a danger that runs unfathomably deep--and a passion that runs even deepers..."--P. [4] of cover.… (more)
