Sophie drowned as a child. She died for three minutes. Her childhood trauma is real.
Yet Sophie Smart, hot-shot advertising executive, isn’t a child anymore. Now Sophie’s most important client, handsome Matthew Silver, is insisting she learn how to swim. She can’t blame him really – he’s the owner of a chain of swimming centers, and Sophie’s in charge of his new advertising campaign.
The last thing Sophie wants to do is get in the water, in a clingy swimsuit, with a client she’s trying to impress. She’s not going to win him over flapping around like an idiot, is she?
But with a broken heart from her last relationship, maybe getting into the pool is just what Sophie needs? Maybe Sophie can trust Matthew with her fears. Maybe she can let go. Maybe it’s time for Sophie to forget about her past and take the plunge?
I read this book in the tub quite some time ago, and laughed the whole time. Well, when I wasn’t feeling sorry for Sophie. As you can tell from the blurb, Sophie has a couple of problems. It is very hard for her to trust men, due to her broken heart. And Matthew Silver won’t give her the contract for his new advertising campaign unless she learns to swim. Well, that is to be expected I suppose if she is going to be advertising swim centers, right?
What I really liked about the book is how Sophie handles her fears. She is scared, literally to death, of the water, and for good reason. But with Matthew’s help, can she learn to overcome her fears? I know what Sophie feels like, and I felt for her the whole books. Growing up in “the old days” the accepted method for a child to learn to swim was to just throw them off the dock into the deep end. Hey, sink or swim, right? Of course, my problem was that not only didn’t I know how to swim, I had 600 vision (Yep. Blind as a bat) and I couldn’t see the shoreline! Needless to say, I didn’t get into the water for a long, long time after that!
