Paul is good with books, logic, and statistics, but emotions? Not so much. He experienced betrayal as a child, and he vowed to never knowingly let it happen again. He built elaborate, protective barriers around his heart, against the dysfunction that is his family. He didn't see it coming when Rhees Williams came along, dragging her oversized duffel bag onto the deck of his scuba shop. He didn't see it coming when she appealed to his softer side. He didn't see it coming when she found her way into his heart.
Rhees is not only a good person, she's the kindest, most innocent, beautiful woman he's ever known. With her, he sees everything doesn't always fit into simple black and white boxes. She teaches him that just because he can get away with something, it doesn't necessarily mean he should. She's changed his life for the better, and he wants it to stay that way.
Paul finds himself starting to believe in happily ever afters, that love is real after all - his feelings for Rhees are proof of that. What he and Rhees have is true love - he's sure of it.
And another thing he's figured out with certainty? Love sucks!
Wet Part 3 is a literal continuation of parts one and two, not a standalone.
