Tess Hansen is a marine biologist who seems to be ponderously self-absorbed. Somehow, we cannot connect to any character who is not being nice to a partner (even if it is a one-night stand), especially when the partner is really nice. The first chapter of the book has Tess doing just that. Plus she is quite an ass with her perfectly ordinary family. So, right away we developed a dislike.

Britt James is a chemist with an R&D lab who is suddenly hit by the damage her company is doing to the environment and is shaken to the core. She runs away into nowhere to find a way to correct the wrongs she has been a part of and find something that she is passionate about. Britt is a much better written character and is quite likeable too.

The initial attraction between them seems forced, especially the pining that they do for each other without having really interacted. For almost half the book, their growing feelings of each other were too disquieting as there seemed to be no basis.

After about 65% to 70% the book gets a little more involving. However, we couldn’t particularly like Tess right till the end. Britt, on the other hand, grew more and more likeable. The secondary characters, though not particularly developed, were nice enough.

On the whole, this was not a book that we could really get into.
