I have always loved the sea, but swimming in its depths now just might kill me.
Kailani Ericson leads a lonely and depressing existence. Her mother is an indentured servant to a hateful old woman who thrives on terrorizing Kai. Her best friend and the ocean in her backyard are her only comforts.
Then he moves in next door. Bryce Howell is gorgeous, every girl’s fantasy. He’s also arrogant, insolent, and strictly forbidden. But he’s not normal. He’s something different. Something strange and irresistible.
When their forbidden relationship is discovered, Kai’s world is turned upside down. She discovers the truth about her ancestry and faces an uncertain future. The ocean waters call to her, but therein lies the problem. Swimming in the sea would mean certain death, but staying on land will kill her, too.
