Rose had the perfect summer planned, and those plans didn't involve Brent -- a sexy but stand-offish lifeguard. London socialite Rosalie Harrington knows there's more to life than image and reputation, but that doesn't stop her enjoying the power and respect that her position as Queen Bee brings. She's therefore far from happy at the prospect of spending the summer in a remote coastal town, miles away from the luxury of her usual lifestyle. As the cracks in her seemingly perfect life emerge, Rose struggles to maintain her superficial friendships and battles with her deteriorating relationship. To make matters worse, her one place of escapism--the beach--is tarnished by the presence of Brent, an unfriendly but undeniably handsome lifeguard. The two of them couldn't be more different, but their mutual love of the beach forces them together and sparks begin to fly. Brent might be an expert at saving troubled swimmers, but while they both drown in their own problems and fight to get to the surface of each other's issues, just who will end up rescuing who?
