Sadie Jenkins’ most recent site of preservation is a sunken WWII cargo ship off the coast of the Bahamas. When a giant corporation threatens to blow it up to make way for an underwater gas pipeline, Sadie is forced to prove to the Head of Government the importance and value of her site. And when assistance comes from a bad-boy welder who works for the corporation, she ends up battling not only the people trying to demolish her site, but her heart as well—because its latched on to the one man who can save her ship or destroy it.

Connell Murphey is the best underwater welder this side of the Atlantic and thrives when the stakes are highest. When Slade Industries offers him a dangerous gig with a big pay off, he can’t wait to sign on. When a local marine preservationist gives Slade trouble—her site’s protection would cost him millions to go around it instead of through it—Slade offers Connell the deal of a lifetime: twelve million has his name on it if he gets close to Sadie and testifies to the Head of Government that her site isn’t worth saving. Should be easy Money.

That is, until he meets Sadie. She’s a force to be reckoned with and the only woman who has ever been able to not only keep pace with him on a dive but completely surpass him on every level. She’s smart, sexy, and their chemistry is off the charts. The more he gets to know her, the harder he falls but he’s already in too deep with the deal he made with Slade.

When the time comes, will he be able to turn down the money and choose the girl of his dreams, or will too many lies kill his only chance at forever?

I absolutely loved the first two books of the Love on the Edge Series and I really enjoyed reading this third book but I have to say that it couldn’t always hold my attention the same way as the previous books could.
As always Molly E. Lee told the adventure amazingly well even though I couldn't connect with the divers and their passion for danger and ship wrecks in this book as much as I would have liked. I enjoyed reading about it nonetheless but just wasn't pulled into their magic bubble.

The Story:
Sadie is in love and she would do anything to save her - The Falconer , a sunken WW II cargo ship in the depth of the ocean. When the ship and Sadie's site is threatened to be destroyed because of an oil pipeline to be laid there, she is determined to fight with everything she can.
Connell is one of the best welder's if not the best in his profession. He works for Slade and is offered an opportunity to earn an awful lot of money just for siding with Slade and stating the fact that the site of the ship wreck is not worth saving. Though he didn't count on Sadie and her urge to save what everyone else already wrote off. She sees the beauty in the most obscure things. No one shared her passion and the love of the ocean that's her home and when Connell is the only one being able to save her site she is determined to get him on her side. Neither of them expected the pull toward each other that’s growing during their work together and even though they can't deny it there are some dark secretes hidden in the depth of Connell that may shatter everything that’s developed between Sadie and him.

I liked the characters of Sadie and Connell and loved to read both of their POVs but I couldn't connect with them as much as with the characters of the previous books. The story was good but felt a bit long at some parts. At around 70% it started to be what I'm used to of Molly's writing. I loved the suspense that sadly just started late in the book, until then there was just one scene that really kept me on the edge of the seat.

This book is definitely worth reading and instills the want for more especially the mention of hurricanes at one point made me consider re-reading the first book in this series. =)

All in all it still was a really good read and I can’t wait to read more of her books and hope there are more to come in this series because the storylines of her adventure books are really creative and surprise me each time.
