Sophie drowned as a child. She died for three minutes. Her childhood trauma is real.
Yet Sophie Smart, hot-shot advertising executive, isn't a child anymore. Now Sophie's most important client, handsome Matthew Silver, is insisting she learn how to swim. She can't blame him really - he's the owner of a chain of swimming centers, and Sophie's in charge of his new advertising campaign.
The last thing Sophie wants to do is get in the water, in a clingy swimsuit, with a client she’s trying to impress. She's not going to win him over flapping around like an idiot, is she?
But with a broken heart from her last relationship, maybe getting into the pool is just what Sophie needs? Maybe Sophie can trust Matthew with her fears. Maybe she can let go. Maybe it's time for Sophie to forget about her past and take the plunge?
About the Author
Alicia M Kaye is a writer of romantic fiction. She grew up in Australia, in sunny Queensland on a canal side property with her family. She also lived walking distance from Surfers Paradise, and the nearby beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast. Although Alicia is most probably and most certainly biased, she makes no secret in her belief that the Gold Coast is one the most breathtaking places in the world (where the beaches have real waves). However, by no means is Alicia a real surfer, although learning how to surf is definitely on her bucket list. When she was twenty-four, Alicia realised she was curious about the world and she jumped on a plane and relocated to London. The move was only supposed to be for two years, but seven and a half years later, she was still living there with her husband. Together they explored England, Europe and the world as much as possible. Although writing has always been a passion for Alicia it was in London where she began to write furiously. Writing is indeed a lonely occupation but luckily Alicia is not just a writer, she’s also an animal lover. She desperately would love a pet but her nomad life will not permit one. So, Alicia wrote this book with the company of a fostered cat (from the RSPCA) named Buttons (who is now called Clarence by his new adopted owners). When Buttons found his new parents she tried to encourage and attempt the stray cats of Highbury and Islington to take his place – to no avail. They would not join the party. Over the last two years Alicia and her husband started on their journey back home to Australia. There’s been a little bit of side-tracking, with both the beach and the snow beckoned from different parts of the world. Together they've explored and lived in amazing countries including Thailand, Mexico, Austria and Malta.
