Quick Summary Sonya Savonski isn't afraid of taking risks and she's taking some big ones during this year's fishing season in South Naknek, Alaska..Show More ». Not only is she going to continue with the family's tradition of set netting, she's also going to captain a drift boat and fish out in the open sea. This is her first year heading the family's commercial fishing business, taking the reins from her grandfather. Her decision to use both fishing options is controversial enough but she's also the only woman leading a drift boat crew.
The issues Alaska State Trooper Garrett Hunt decides to join the Alaska Wildlife Troopers during the season as a chance to get out of town after he lost his opportunity to pursue a relationship with "friend with benefits" Mel Bennett (see my review of Edge). He meets Sonya as soon as he lands and it's an immediate attraction...that's before she learns he's a "fish cop." By then, it's too late as they're both hooked. Things get dicey when Sonya becomes a target and is the victim of numerous incidents of sabotage, some life threatening.
What I enjoyed As with the previous story, I learned quite a bit about the rudiments and perils of commercial fishing in the Bering Sea as well as the realities of life in this Alaska region. It's fascinating and when you overlay this backdrop with an eclectic cast of characters and exciting action, I was hooked. I had a clue as to who was behind the sabotage but there was a surprise twist that I didn't foresee. And, Sonya has an ex-boyfriend on the scene who wanted to remove the "X." I had a love-hate thing going with Adrian throughout the story. But Sonya and Garrett's romance was always the main focus and theirs was a fiery relationship.
The narration I enjoyed Mia's narration much more this time as she better handled the suspenseful aspects of the story. She also did a great job distinguishing the characters, adding a unique flair to some of them. Her pacing was perfect.
The bottom line I really liked the story, setting, action and romance. The balance between the suspense and romance seemed perfect and I never felt either was diminished by the other. The Alaska element continues to be a huge draw for me as this is new territory (pardon the pun) and the fact that I now know the difference between set netting and drift fishing feels good, too. It was exciting and I liked Sonya and Garrett's romance. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
