“Tell me, are you running? Or are you home?”
Burnt out, disillusioned, and feeling defeated, Adrian Tate finds himself back on Haven Island, a place full of childhood memories. Back then, things were simple and happy. But now? Not so much.
Tate had big dreams of saving the world. He set sail on the ocean he love . . . but nothing changed. He failed at his plan. He’s bitter.
Luna bursts into his house and his life like a bright ray of youthful sunshine.
So young, so full of hope and dreams, Tate knows that she’s everything he should stay away from. She’s everything he used to be. Being around her, touching her, will only remind him of his failures, of everything he didn’t do . . . of how opposite they are in every way.
“I’d love to talk to you more about your experiences sometime. You might even have some ideas for me.”
Luna Fisher is captivated by the new, rugged man who appears on Haven Island one day. He’s seen the world, traveled across all of the oceans, and lived her dreams. She wants to learn everything he has to offer.
Except he doesn’t want to talk about his past. He doesn’t want to talk about saving turtles or the ocean. So Luna devises a plan to help Tate renovate his house as a way of getting closer to him.
The closer they get, the hotter the sparks fly.
Tate is everything Luna wants. Luna knows there’s a heart of gold buried underneath his rough exterior, and she is the only person who can pull it out again. But when Tate continues to push her away, to cling to his darkness instead of embracing her sunshine, Luna begins to wonder if her love is enough. If she can save Tate from himself.
One with the sea . . .
Tate doesn’t know where he belongs. He doesn’t know what he wants to do with his life now. He only knows that he wants Luna. But when Luna wants to set sail, Tate wonders if he needs to set her free . . . or if he has enough passion to go with her and try to save the world again.
