Jeremy Rose came to Bluewater Bay to work as Anna Maxwell’s bodyguard, not to escape his increasingly bitter relationship with his estranged kids. He just wants to focus on his job and be alone for a while. He’s done with love, especially now that three years after his long overdue divorce, he’s got a front-row seat to the rapid deterioration between Anna and her girlfriend. Cynical doesn’t even begin to describe him.

Then Anna and Leigh’s attempts to reconcile put him in the crosshairs of marriage counselor Scott Fletcher. Scott’s exactly what Jeremy needs right now: gorgeous, hot, horny, single, and 100% uninterested in a relationship. The problem is, too much no-strings-attached sex—and too much time in each other’s company—inevitably builds emotional connection.

Except Jeremy refuses to seek counseling for his broken family, and Scott refuses to get seriously involved with men who work dangerous jobs. They both need to realize they can only hide for so long from the pain they came here to escape. They must face their pasts before they lose their shot at a happy future.

Rain Shadow by author L.A. Witt is the tenth book in the Bluewater Bay series, it is a stand alone book though. You do not have to read the previous books to understand this one. This is my first introduction to Bluewater Bay. We first meet Jeremy who is a bodyguard to an actress named Anna. Jeremy sees a lot of himself in Anna's life. He sees her failing relationship with her significant other Leigh and it brings back memories of his own failed marriage. His children wont talk to him. He pretty much failed in the marriage game. When he meets Scott, he is not really ready for love, but he finds it anyways. Scott is a councilor. That is not endearing to Jeremy. He has had his fill of councilors for a lifetime. So they both embark on a strictly sex relationship. At least that is what they think it is. Jeremy's kind, sweet, and passionate nature really make Scott fall for him. Scott has patience, love, and brings cuddling to the table along with lots of talks. Together they each have something the other needs. Really perfect together they just have to see it for themselves and believe it. I found the ending to be bittersweet to this book. But fitting. I would love to visit these two again and see where they are and how things work out. They are both amazing characters. I will be looking for more in the Bluewater Bay series in the future, I think this is a town I really need to get to know better.
