There was a novel I read 8-9 years ago in high school. I don't remember the main characters name, but he had a girlfriend named PJ. The main character went on a quest with another woman who put him through a few tests, the last one being that she stripped down and basically said "have your way with me", but he refused because of his girlfriend.

I believe there were also bits about some glowing crystals in an underwater cavern. This is all I can think of from the novel.

Could this be Firestorm, part of the "Caretaker" trilogy of books by David Klass?

The main character does quests (something to do with the ocean) and has a girlfriend called P.J.

His mother is not his mother. His father is not his father. But if Jack hadn't broken the high school rushing record that night, he never would have known and nothing would have changed. He'd just be going out for pizza, playing football, trying yet again to score with his girlfriend, P.J. But he did break the record. He appeared on the news. And now they've found him. Jack plunges into a space-time-bending game of survival with no way out. The rules are shrouded in secrets. But one thing he learns fast: Trust no one. After centuries of abuse, the earth is dying, and it's up to Jack to reverse the decline before the Turning Point, when nothing will ever be the same again. Beaten into shape by a ninja babe and a huge telepathic man's best friend, Jack hurtles across the ocean to save the future from the present and to solve the mystery of his purpose. Exactly who, or what, is Firestorm, and what does it have to do with Jack? And what comes next when everything you have ever known turns out to be wrong?
