K. A. Mitchell - No Souvenirs

Trauma surgeon Jae Sun Kim has just lost the job he wanted more than anything else in his life. Looking for a way to hit the reset button, he takes a scuba vacation. He didn’t plan on seasickness, or a dive master who is sex-on-the-beach personified.

Shane McCormack’s tendency to drift away from complicated situations has landed him a job as a dive master in Belize, which isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. But with the big three-oh looming, asking his parents to bail him out again isn’t an option. The job isn’t without its perks, though, and as soon as he figures a way to keep that hot but arrogant ass of a doctor from tossing his cookies over the side of the boat, he plans to flirt the control freak out of his brittle shell.

The close quarters on the ship generate more heat than either expects, but a vacation fling is all that’s in the plans. An unexpected adventure leaves them changed in ways that make it impossible to go back to their old lives. The risks they’ll both have to take could leave them with nothing but more scars, or the best souvenir of all.

Comment: This is the third story with connected characters. I've read the previous ones some time ago and the thing I loved the most was the fact the relationship between the main characters started as something easy, not a big deal and then, in the end, I believed it was real love.
The author has the ability to make her characters live and learn while dealing with others and it hapened in theis book too.
Shane and Kim started in lust and ended in love. I especially liked how both of them had some insecurities and overcame them together. I like it when a story takes a while to be done. Things don't just happen in RL, so it's a pleasure to see it in fiction too.
Things weren't easy to them to admit, much less accept, but Kim in particular made a decison I think not everyone could do. Taking a chance on something you're not sure shows a lot of courage and like I said, not everyone has it.
All in all, a great read.
