Romance suspense at its' best

Zane "Casanova of the Caribbean" Cutter believes he knows where a Dutch frigate filled with precious metals and gems sunk in 1622. He needs a master mechanic to accompany him when he begins the latest Cutter Salvage operation. He asks Teal Williams, who recently joined his family firm to be closer to her dying father, to accompany him to sea. She agrees as he offers her a cut of the booty as long as he also understands no sex. He accepts the stipulation though he admits to himself her is turned on by his shipmate who he knew when she was a skinny child.

Their trip turns harrowing when a storm blows them off course. Adding to their plight are deadly sea thieves willing to kill to steal the treasure. However, neither is quite as dangerous as their attraction as he needs to prove his worthiness on treasure hunts and she was burned by a philandering hunk.

This under and on the surface watery romantic suspense thriller grips readers from the moment the storm blows the ship off course and never slows down as the protagonists struggle with perils including to their hearts with every nautical mile they sail. Fast-paced, Cherry Adair opens her Cutter Salvage series with a strong sea saga.

It was slow to get into, but ended up to be a good mystery.The heroine was over reactive. The type a guy would take one nasty rebuff and find another girl, not stick it out with a girl who is not only nasty, but insults him again and again. Besides she dresses so no guy will look at her. Not much faith in herself even though the guy is complimentary and persistant.
The archeology was good.

    This is a must read book!

    I just want to say that the first book in the Cutter Cay series is the beginning of a great series. Zane and Teal end up a great couple. Teal comes to see her father when he asks her to come to the island. She finds out that he has cancer and isn't going to take any treatments. She's never been able to be close to her father and she thinks this is the last chance she'll have with him. Then she ends up taking the mechanic's job that her father would have had on Zane's salvage boat. The only problem is that she gets sea ick. Zane is a hottie and she has always loved him. He unfortunately doesn't realize this. There is adventure, suspense and romance all in one book taking place on one boat. You will be caught up in this great story in no time.

    Undertow is a romantic adventurous action book that is focused around deep sea treasure hunting and is the first book in Cherry Adair's Cutter Cay series. Cherry does a wonderful job of painting the picture of what it feels, sounds and looks like to be deep sea diving and what you could only imagine what a hundreds year old ship wreck would look like at the bottom of the ocean. Zane Cutter and Teal Williams are both very likable characters who she puts through the ringer, first with someone stealing treasure right under their noses. Then something else happens that causes even more trouble than they could imagine and has them both fighting for their lives and relying on each other for survival and falling in love.

    Did not enjoy this book at all

    I have read otger books by this author and liked them. I could not get into this book at all. Very slow going and got tired of trying to read. Characters are frustrating and had to put this book down without finishing.

    Zane hires Teal for her mechanic abilities and is happy when she appears to be immune to his charms. But before long, they are fighting their attraction to each other along with an unknown enemy who is out to destroy their salvage recovery mission. Passion, kidnapping, explosions and sunken treasure, Undertow has it all. You will not be disappointed. Cherry Adair does a great job of drawing you into the lives of the Cutter men and will leave you wanting more.

    Fun read

    They were a fun couple--enjoyed watching them move from pointing out each others worst traits to finding those things endearing. If you like the author's other work, this series won't disappoint you (at least so far--I'm only halfway through the second one!).

    1ST IN THE SERIES

    Great opening for the series! Zane couldnt be any hotter and Teal is just bad-ass! I loved all the twist and turns of the book and the treasure hunting itself was wicked exciting! This book was definitely a great hook for the rest of the books in the Cutter Cay series. I am eager to meet every single one of them after reading Zanes story!

    Do you love it when an over confident man gets taken down a step

    Do you love it when an over confident man gets taken down a step by strong woman? Than you need to read this book! Zane has always had it easy and it took almost no effort on his part to get any woman he wants, until Teal is convinced to be his mechanic. She has been in deep crush with Zane for most of her childhood but has learned that too gorgeous men aren't all that they seem. She avoids Zane's charms by using her caustic wit until he proves that he is more than he seems.

    Lots of heat and action make the pages turn quickly that you will be done before you know it!

    Cute, funny, and suspenseful!

    Review by Shannon:
    What more could you want from a great contemporary book? Hot hero? Check. Tough as nails heroine who's nothing but squishy inside? Check. Great romance? Check. A little suspense? Check. Beautiful scenic area that makes you want to hop a plane and visit the nearest white sand beach? You can't get much better than the scenery in this book.

    Teal Williams has been trying to put her life back together after her disastrous marriage. When she receives a call about her dad, Sam's health, she puts her plans on hold. Seems the company her father works for, Cutter Salvage, is in need of a mechanic and her father has suggested that she fill in for him. Willing to do what she can for her father, she agrees and flies to Cutter Cay. She only hopes she won't have to deal with Zane Cutter, the object of her adolescent obsession and the cause of her temporary insanity two years ago.

    Zane Cutter is about to embark on the salvage job of his career. He's found a shipwrecked Dutch ship that is supposed to be filled with gold, silver and emeralds the size of his fist. He needs a first rate mechanic to fill in for Sam and having a woman on board who looks like Teal won't tempt him at all. Zane falls in love easily and he doesn't want anything to distract him on job. What he doesn't anticipate is what Teal is hiding under all those bulky clothes and how much he wants what she doesn't want to offer.

    Was this predictable in spots? Yes. Did that take away from the story? Hell no. It was cute, funny, suspenseful, sexy, heartbreaking and heartfelt all while keeping you entertained. The mystery/suspense part of the story happens kind of fast, but it gives you insight into what our main characters are made of. The only thing I wished we had more of in this story were Nick and Logan. It would have helped build the interest in the next book.

    As summer unwinds, be sure to add this to your beach read list. I can still see those turquoise waters and white sands!

    My New ALL TIME FAVORITE ROMANTIC SUSPENSE Author!

    Holy cow! Cherry Adair has just become my all time favorite female romantic suspense author. She is phenomenally talented and knows what her readers will want! I have never read a Cherry Adair novel, but had heard lots of great stuff about her, so I decided to give her books a try. WOW! I was SO pleased with what I read!

    Undertow is fantastic. And, luckily, it's the first in a series called Cutter Cay, and I got to start it off right. Teal Williams and Zane Cutter. Wow. Now THERE are two characters who you'll fall in love with. Ms. Adair created them with flair and passion and it overflows onto the reader as they learn all about Teal and Zane.

    Teal Williams, a marine mechanic, was sent to keep Zane's falling down, rusting, and old boat, The Decrepit's engines cleaned and up to date. Little did she know that she would be spending a month on the water in that said run-down looking boat, with Zane, a man she butts heads with like crazy yet they send the sparks flying every time they're near each other, looking for his treasure from a boat wreck long ago. That's the only incentive that she'll take.

    Zane Cutter. O.M.G. I want one. He was yummy from the start and wow! Yea, that's all I can say about him( I mean, just look at his yummy picture on the cover...oh la la la!). He's got a way with women and when Teal doesn't fall victim to his charms, he's determined to win her over.

    But, while Teal, Zane and the rest of the crew are looking for the treasure, someone is out to get their hands on Zane's fortune. Who? And why? As they search together for clues, and set the scene for passion, they realize it's about more than stolen treasure.....someone is out to sabotage. It's a race against time for Zane as he has to search for a microchip that will blow up, save his friends, and find Teal....I think I'll stop there because I will definitely give the plot away if I keep going.

    I definitely, hands down, recommend this book to all the romance lovers out there. It's got the perfect amount of passion, an awesome amount of suspense that keeps the reader hungry for more, and a fantastic amount of humor....just some advice: don't eat or drink while reading this, because the humor that flows through the pages, well, let's just say you'll choke or spew the drink through the nose as you laugh at the quirky wit of these fantabulous characters. I can't wait to dive into the next Cutter Cay novel, Riptide. Grab a copy of this 5 Book worthy novel and see for yourself why Cherry Adair is my all time favorite author now.
