I’m looking for a hero. Not.
You’d think as a new college grad I’d have my future all figured out. I don’t. I’ll worry about that in September. Summer is here and I’m playing in the Hamptons sandbox with my two best friends. At summer’s end one is off to a high-powered job and the other is getting married.
Better her than me.
Then I meet Sean Dempsey, my fantasy lifeguard in the flesh. But he is more than just a hot bod with a whistle. Much more. Now the one thing I’m sure I don’t want might be the only thing I need.
To the rescue…
By day I guard the beaches in the Hamptons, by night I’ve had my fair share of summer flings. Then I meet Kelsey Mitchell, a girl with eyes like the setting sun and I burn for more. Much more. Something I have no right to hope for. Forever.
Love burns hotter in the Hamptons. Come play.

For Scarlett, leaving home and moving to Maine directly after high school was her only option. Trapped by controlling, manipulative parents, she knew the only way she would ever be free was to leave California and never come back.

I didn’t believe in love at first sight, until I first saw Lucas Kade.
I was giving swimming lessons to children when I first saw him. Turns out one of the kids was Lucas’s little brother. So, I’d be seeing a lot more of Lucas. And that was just fine with me.
I had a lot going on—a freshman at an elite college, first time away from home, and, oh yeah, roommates with a girl I’d been sent to spy on. I wasn’t exactly looking for anything exclusive. Something casual, though, would be great.
But there was nothing casual about my feelings for Lucas.
He was a townie, hiding a secret, and I knew better than to get involved. I was always the sensible one, the peacekeeper.
Before I knew it…I was In Too Deep.
