Where the Sea Takes Me
Series: Sea #2
Heidi R Kling
Publication date: April 2nd 2018 by Entangled Teen
Genres: YA Contemporary
For Sienna Jones, the last two years have felt like two lifetimes.
Now, she’s finally starting to move on, diving headfirst into humanitarian missions with Team Hope, schoolwork, and maybe sort of even love.
Things are looking up.
But then he arrives on her doorstep, the boy she left behind, and the sight of him shakes Sienna to the core.
Sparks fly. It’s like no time has passed since she left him on the beach two years ago. Now she’s torn between the new life she’s fought so hard to build, and the possibility of one she thought she’d never have.
When they’re both invited to join Team Hope on a mission in Cambodia, they jump at the chance to help. But when they lose their group and maybe each other, Sienna’s forced to make an impossible choice… and say goodbye to someone she loves one last time.
First in the Series:
In less than two hours, Deni would be in a car with me.
I was going to be sick.
“Sienna.” His right eye twitched. He didn’t wear glasses anymore. After laser surgery (Vera’s idea) he didn’t need them. I still wasn’t used to his eyes without the glass cover. “I honestly don’t know about his wife. I assume she’s still around. Let’s just focus on the fact he’s coming to visit, okay? It’ll only be for a few days. And then, we’re off to Cambodia.” He patted my hand. “This means you won’t get much of a break after finals, but you don’t mind showing Deni around a bit, right?”
Did I mind? It was only what I’d dreamed of for the two years since I tore myself out of his arms on the broken shores of Banda Aceh, no matter how hard I tried to keep the memory of Deni in my past.
“No, it’s okay.” I didn’t want to show him my range of emotion. How torn I felt. How huge this was for me to see Deni again after finally getting ready to move on with Spider. I wouldn’t want him putting Deni in a hotel.
I felt like Dad and I should be on the same page about this summer, though. About what Spider asked.
“Want to hear another thing making this summer interesting?”
“Spider asked me to move in with him.”
Dad choked on a popcorn kernel. “What?” he asked, sputtering. “First Deni is coming, and now a boy wants my daughter to move in with him? Your old dad is going to have a heart attack.”
“Believe me,” I said. “None of this was my idea.”
“Are you and Spider dating? I thought you were just good friends.”
“Well, we aren’t dating, but… He said he wants it to be more.”
It felt weird to talk about this with my dad, but we’d bonded in Indonesia. Things had been a lot better between us since then.
“How do you feel?”
I got up and started to pace. “I like Spider. I always have. But why now? Why did this have to happen the same morning we find out Deni is on his way? I mean, obviously Deni is married but still…having him here will be weird.”
Dad considered me. “Sometimes life presents you with the perfect storm, and it’s up to you to figure out how to navigate your way through it.”
Perfect storm? More like a tsunami.
And I wasn’t ready.
