Determined to finally conquer her terror of swimming, Maddy Gordon signed up for lessons at the local pool. She did not expect to be the only adult in a group of seven-year-olds. Even more daunting, the class was taught by five-time Olympic gold medalist and gorgeous celebrity Zack London.
Filling in as a swim teacher, London was intrigued by a woman so afraid that she fainted in hip-deep water and in front of a class of second graders. A role model if there ever was one…
When Maddy drew Zach’s attention to bruises on one of his students, his fatherly instincts surfaced. Their mutual decision to protect the girl drew Maddy and Zack closer… a series of steamy private swim lessons cinched their relationship. But their time together awakened deeply painful memories in each, presenting serious barriers to their future. Will they be able to face their fears and heal each other?
