Review – Depths of Salvation by Molly E Lee

Synopsis:
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?
 
 
 
My Review:
5 out of 5 stars

I’ve read Molly’s books from the beginning. She pulled me in with Edge of Chaos, wowed me with East of Redemption, and has practically left me speechless with Depths of Salvation. I’ve said before she has an amazing gift with detail and making the reader feel they are right there in the story where the action is happening. This book is so different than anything else I’ve read and it was really fun and interesting to get a peek into what the lives of a marine preservationalist and an underwater welder are like. I really loved Sadie’s character. She was sassy, strong, confident, and wasn’t afraid to stand up for what she believed in, never backing down. Connell was strong despite what he had been through and you couldn’t help but wonder what happened to make him so closed off. These two were perfect for each other and what started out as a job turned into a once in a lifetime, all consuming kind of love.
