DESIRE RUNS DEEP

Somewhere off the coast of Greece, a king’s ransom in gold, emeralds, and silver coins lies waiting at the bottom of the sea. Finding this ancient treasure would be a dream come true for marine archeologist Calista West. But that’s not why she’s here. She didn’t climb aboard Jonah Cutter’s magnificent yacht seeking fortune or fame. She’s come for revenge—against the sexiest, most seductive, modern-day pirate she’s ever encountered…

Like his famous half brothers, Jonah is a master of salvaging ships—and driving women mad with his movie-star looks and raw animal magnetism. Tall, dark, and devastating, he manages to make Callie forget her mission. Every moment they share under the hot Mediterranean sun is an erotically-charged adventure neither can resist. But when Callie discovers what he’s really after—the lost city of Atlantis—is it too late to change the course of her heart…or go all in with the lover of her dreams?

The Cutter Cay series is:

"Action-packed drama." —Fresh Fiction

"Sizzlingly sexy." —Booklist

Panting lust and an undersea mystery are, sadly, not enough to save Adair’s weak fourth Cutter Cay contemporary romance (after Vortex). Dr. Callie West is a marine archeologist who signed on to Jonah Cutter’s expedition near Greece with ulterior motives. She presents herself as married, though she’s actually widowed; the last thing she wants is for the enigmatic, darkly handsome Jonah to know she’s available—or to find out her true purpose. Jonah battles inner demons, trying to resist his attraction to the very married archeologist whose services he secured from under his archrival’s nose. However, neither of them can deny the chemistry that’s building during the long days and longer nights in an almost magical place. The heat is sidelined by the possible discovery of the lost city of Atlantis, and by threats from a mysterious group of people determined to undermine their salvage efforts. While the elements surrounding Atlantis’s discovery are fascinating, Adair relies much too heavily on sexual yearnings to propel the story, at the expense of an otherwise solid plot. Two-dimensional, sex-obsessed characters don’t stand up to the wonder of research and history. Agent: Kimberly Whalen, Whalen Agency. (Mar.)

Mystical and intense are the words that come to my mind after reading this book. The author Cherry Adair's vivid imagination and attention to detail makes this a wonderful and exciting read. Callie's character is intense and how she orders her life from her traumatic childhood is a great example for all people. She is a fully dimensional character though somewhat lacking in her personal life. For this reason the addition of Jonah's character is perfect. He is larger than life and continually pushes up against her boundaries not allowing her to stay in her safe zone which forces her to grow personally. Not having read the other books to this series I do have some questions regarding Rydell's back history in regards to the Cutter boys. I look forward to reading books 1-3 of the Cutter Cay Series to fill in the holes though it isn't necessary for reading this book. I really liked all the intricate details of the dives as I know I will never scuba dive but from her writing I felt like I was there experiencing all the unique events. Mysticism is an area that can either draw you in or turn you off but in this book I was fully immersed in the possibility that the lost city of Atlantis actually existed. The author did a phenomenal job in developing this part of the book. I give this 4 stars from making the mysticism believable and the relationship between Callie's loyalty to Jonah and Rydell realistic. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Dr. Calista West comes to the Mediterranean near Greece to work with Jonah Cutter. He comes from a family of treasure hunters. Callie is there to help him recover artifacts from a Chinese junk, but when he tells Callie that he's found the lost city of Atlantis, she's stunned. She's here under false pretenses. Callie is really there to betray him to his enemy. What happens next is a suspenseful story filled with unexpected twists. Jonah and Callie are an amazing couple. They have common interests and amazing chemistry. The lost city enthralls and amazes Jonah and Callie. As they learn more about their discovery, strange things happen. In spite of herself, Callie finds herself falling for Jonah. What will happen when he learns the truth? I couldn't put down Stormchaser. The lost city is a thrilling setting. It was so amazing that I wanted to know more. I loved the touch of magic that is interwoven in this exciting adventure. I loved the characters. Callie is an intelligent and strong woman. Jonah is a dominant alpha who's met his match in this feisty woman. The secondary characters add more drama to this story. Cherry Adair has written a great romantic suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. I'm enjoying the Cutter Cay series. I can't wait for the next story. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read. My comments are my honest opinion.

I have been waiting for Stormchaser, the latest in Cherry Adair’s Cutter Cay series, since I closed the cover of Vortex back in 2012. Almost five years! That’s a long time to wait for a book. Actually, longer than that. I’ve been waiting to hear Jonah’s story since he entered the page early in the series. It was almost worth the wait. This is a fun action, adventure novel written in trademark Cherry Adair style. There’s running, jumping, good guys and bad, and crazy monkey sex, all surrounded by a great story. As soon as I started reading I remembered how much I loved these characters and this series. Now I want to go back and reread the first three. The good news is I don’t have to wait nearly as long for the next book. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Jonah Cutter is just getting to know his half-brothers and feels he has to prove himself. When he is scouting for a lost ship, he’s positive he’s found the ultimate treasure: Atlantis. He’s even secured the ultimate non-believer, Dr. Calista West, to verify it. He just didn’t expect everything that makes up Callie. I’m not too much into contemporaries and I’ve only ever read a novella by this author before, so I really didn’t have much expectations on this book. However, I very much enjoyed it. Callie is independent, a loner and very much driven in her task.I loved watching her character change around as the story progressed. There really wasn’t anything not to love about Jonah. He was smart, sexy, and determined to come out on top. As for the plot, I really wasn’t sure what twists the author would stick in there, but I really loved how she ended it. After reading this book, I so want to go treasure-hunting!! I look forward to reading about the other Cutters and more from this author!. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Callista and Jonah work to solve a nautical mystery and find the ultimate treasure hunt. Good suspense along with their romance. Enjoyed settling in to this book and good stand alone addition to the series. Ebook from netgalley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are entirely my own.

Stormchaser by Cherry Adair is the long await book four in the Cutter Series. Since I have not read all the previous books, I can say this is a stand-alone book. I would like to know about the Cutter brothers and how Jonah came to be so new to the family as a half-brother. Dr. Calista West also has ties to others that I would like to know more about. So while I enjoyed the book, I think I would have understood some things more if I had read the previous books in the series. More lust than love and more betrayal than suspense but still an intriguing romantic suspense book. Besides the obvious human secret agendas in the story there is surprising mythical magical elements as well. I found those to be the most interesting aspects of the story. The end of the book quickly ties up the loose ends but I wished to have known more. Perhaps the next book in the series will bring those unclear parts better clarity. It is a very short wait for the book, Hurricane to be released soon. An ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher through Net Galley.

In the darkest storm... Nick, Logan, and Zane Cutter are a tightknit, unstoppable force in the family treasure-hunting business. Now that half-brother Jonah has arrived at the scene, he’s got a lot to prove—and a powerful enemy who wants to stop him dead in his tracks. Love will find a way.... A perilous sea journey. A bitter nemesis. A woman whose spectacular beauty and talents are to die for…Over and over, Jonah will be tested. Is he worthy of carrying the Cutter name? With his eyes on the prize, Jonah will fight with all his heart. But desire often comes with a price. . . Review: So, I am late to the Cherry Adair books. I have known about them and have wanted to read them, but somehow I never did. Well, I finally read one! Yeah me! What I liked most is that it surprised me. I did not expect the supernatural bent to the storyline. I guess I had a preconceived notion than she would write straight up contemporary adventure. I loved the supernatural aspect to the story and I think it went well with the whole searching for lost treasure. That is another thing I liked, the searching for lost treasure. I have always been fascinated with ancient civilizations and always want to go on an expedition. Plus I am hooked on those shows like "The Curse of Oak Island". Jonah, first I loved that he had scruples and did not go after Calista when he thought she was married. But, whoa, momma when the truth came out about that the chemistry exploded. Calista, I liked her, not as much as Jonah. I have to say the scene where she puts the creepy Anndra in her place, was just awesome to read...one of my favorite parts of the book. I had not read the other books in the series, so I was a little confused on why Calista's brother-in-law is so out to get the Cutter's. But other than that, it can be read as a stand alone. Writing was engaging and fun to read. Loved the setting of the book. Now, I want to go look for Atlantis ;) Great action, adventure romance with a little supernatural thrown in. 4Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher.*

Good Addition to the Cutter Cay series This is book 4 in the Cutter Cay series. Jonah has the chance of a lifetime to be a treasure hunter like his half-brothers. When he finds a sunken Chinese ship off not far from the Greek Isle, Jonah thinks this is his chance and he snaps it up and runs for the opportunity to show he is like his brothers. He thinks this sunken ship is his holy grail and his gold mine. He needs an archeologist worth their weight in their field and one who wont try to disprove this find just because they wont believe what has been found. This marine archeologist is none other than Calista. Thing is, she isn’t what she appears to be. She is an archeologist but she also wants to help her mentor out and in order to do so, she will gladly undercut Jonah by taking his research to help her mentor. There are many twists and turns beset with Betrayal, Conflict, Angst Sexual Tension and Passion in this book. There are so many things at play –Jonah and Calista are a good couple- each have what they are after and then they realize there is more to life than that one dream. The mystery and suspense that are interwoven help boost the storyline. At times the story does become dull but it will pick back up. I didn’t like when the ending became rushed for I wanted to see the story naturally progress but overall, this was a good addition to the Cutter Cay series. My rating: 4.4 stars **** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Stormchaser is book four of Cherry Adair’s Cutter Cay series. This is a wonderful five book series. I’ve started with Stormchaser and loved every second of it. It can definitely stand alone. This is an adventure/romance series with all the trimmings and more. The plot is fast paced and well thought out. The characters are realistic and well developed. The romance sizzles and the intrigue and adventure never end. This is the story of Jonah Cutter and Dr. Calista West (Rydell). An imaginative story about finding the lost city of Atlantis! Yes, it is! As well as other treasure. Adair pulls off an intriguing plot and wraps it in and exciting package of true love. She does it with such zest for life and yet manages to remain true to the exciting premise of otherworldly science, not to mention good old-fashioned human greed. Jonah is one of the Cutter brothers (from another mother, but accepted by the brothers) and wants to prove himself to his successful brothers and show them how dedicated he and brilliant he is. Dr. Calista West (a.k.a. Callie) is/was married to Adam Case, brother of the Cutter rival, Rydell Case. She uses her professional name, not her married one. There’s a lot of bad business and blood between these families. She actually had ulterior motives for taking this job, besides being paid four time her usual rate. Rydell wants her to spy on Cutter and let him know what treasure he’s after. The attraction between the two main characters is immediate and very hot. Both fight the attraction with all they have. Callie uses her wedding ring (her husband died four years earlier due to illness) to keep single males at bay. Jonah, coming from a father that was unfaithful to both wives…doesn’t believe in poaching. The angst is sizzling as they fight the attraction. Callie is just as attracted to Jonah, but conflicted out of loyalty for Rydell. Ah, the tangled webs Adair weaves… I don’t do spoilers, so I’ll just say that the plot weaving these two together through attraction, adventure, danger and more is one whale of a ride. It’s more than entertaining, it’s enthralling. This story and series is a keeper! Copy provided for honest review

This is the long awaited 4th book in the Cutter Cay Romantic Suspense/Adventure series. I've always enjoyed Cherry's stories and was delighted when her publisher gave me a NetGalley ARC of this book. The story is full of action, lustful attraction that tries to be denied, betrayal and mystery. As always Cherry has well researched her subject and I wished I could have had this in an epub version rather than the pdf provided by the publisher so I could easily look up the meaning of words I was unfamiliar with. The story is about the salvage of a sunken Chinese Junk off the coast of Greece by the Cutter brothers newly discovered half-brother, Jonah. He's determined to prove to the successful brothers that he's worthy to be a full member of the family salvage company. He's discovered a lost city under his wreck and he thinks it's Atlantis. He hires Dr. Calista (Callie) West as his marine archaeologist to authenticate the discovery. With all his in-depth research on his crew he missed that Dr. Calista is the Cutter's competitor/foe, Rydell Case's sister-in-law. She accepted the job so she could turn the discovery over to Rydell her only remaining beloved family. Jonah also doesn't know her husband, Adam Case, died 4 years ago and she's using her wedding ring as "protection" against romantic entanglements. Neither one reckoned on the burning instant sexual chemistry between them. And so the story spins with one adventure after another. There is mystery in who are these odd guys on the nearby Fire Island, why are there accidents happening, who are the odd brother-sister duo who owns a cosmetic company doing on Fire Island? By the end of the action packed story Jonah and Callie discover their true treasure and we discover the answers to all these questions. Thank you St. Martin for the NetGalley ARC for me to review.

This one was just a "meh" read for me. The story is very disjointed in my opinion and I could never develop the warm and fuzzies for these characters. The sexy times are well done but I never feel that chemistry between the two MC. Add to that all the craziness and mystical happenings in the story and it just doesn't feel real. The premise of the story, the exciting discovery of what could be Atlantis, set up everything for an exciting story, I wish it had all come together.

Stormchaser by Cherry Adair Cutter Cay #4 Standalone book but perhaps having read the previous three would have given more background on the Cutter brothers as well as why Rydell, the heroine’s brother-in-law, is a player in this story. This is Jonah and Callie’s story. Jonah Cutter is into archaeological underwater treasure/salvage hunting and believes he has found the motherlode of all finds under the seas near Greece. He has hired Dr. Calista “Callie” West to authenticate as well as dive and do other academic things on the hunt. Callie is there under pretense with subterfuge and bad intentions predominant in her mind. Little did Callie realize that she would be ensnared by pheromones AND the lure of a potentially huge find that could make her name in academic circles. Add into the brewing forbidden lust between Jonah and Callie a couple groups of nefarious rather ruthless and questionable characters, some disturbing paranormal stuff and a lot of scientific jargon and you have a larger than life story that kept me entertained today. It is not my first choice of book to read but it was enjoyable all in all. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC. This is my honest review. 3 Stars

3.5 Treasured Stars! I think this might be one of those times where not reading previous books in the series may have hurt the chances for me to connect completely to the story. We start out with Callie taking a job with Jonah Cutter to help him salvage and document his discovery. He believes he has found the lost Atlantis and Callie is an expert in her field. We learn real quick that she only took the job to sabotage it for the Cutters nemesis, Ryder, Callie's brother-in-law. I'm assuming it's revealed in previous books why these men don't get along, but you don't learn it in this book until the second half. What little you do learn, doesn't justify her deceit, in my eyes. I had a really hard time liking Callie because of this. I loved Jonahs character. He fell hard and fast for Callie which made me fall for him. In turn, that made it even harder to like her for betraying him. Unfortunately, this made the first half of the book a bit of a struggle for me. The thing that saved the story for me is that I'm apparently easily won over. Once Callie gave into her attraction to Jonah, I started rooting for them and could enjoy the 2nd half of the book. I would really like to know more about what Rydell thinks the Cutter men did to him to deserve his revenge. It didn't touch anymore on the subject but Rydell's story is next in the series.
