Hunter Markham left home to travel the world for fame and glory, finding it as a top ranked professional surfer. Now he’s returned home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open The Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.
Five years ago, Gabby Ward drunkenly threw herself at her best friend’s brother, only to have her young heart crushed. Hunter is back but Gabby is content to stay far away from him and his dangerously charming ways.
Gabby’s well-schemed plans to ignore Hunter go up in flames when he presents her an offer she simply can’t refuse. Working together day in and day out proves problematic for two reasons—Gabby realizes her feelings for Hunter are still very much alive, while Hunter struggles to break through to Gabby’s cold heart. What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither can deny.
But when the pro surfing tour comes knocking and Hunter has a chance to reclaim his former glory, hard choices lie ahead for both of them.
Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they could ever dare to hope in their second chance at romance.

Definitely worth your time
Of course there's a happy ending... But on the way there, there is a little of everything in this book. Well written and a very enjoyable storyline. Great characters.
On the rocks
Gabby lived outside of social norms in her career . Good on her . Learning to handle her disappointed heart leads to a great love . Fabulous book and beautifully written.
I make no secret of the fact that i love Sawyer's books but i did wonder how On The Rocks would compare to The Off Series. No worries there this book did not disappoint.
Hunter Markham is a world class surfer and he has returned home to open and run a beach bar called Last Call with his twin brother Brody. When he left 5 years ago he broke his sister's best friend Gabby Ward's heart by dismissing a kiss.
Gabby Ward is now running her late fathers construction company and if she wants the business to go forward she needs to bid on the refit of Last Call. Can she work with Hunter without feeling the pain of her broken heart. Can this just be business
Both fight their attraction for each other until fate takes a hand with a broken down car in the rain
Hunter- " I figured out that you and I ...that we're going to happen no matter what"
Gabby- The minute he utters those words i know they're true.
What follows is a passionate love affair with twists and turns as people from Hunter's past come back into their life's.
Does Hunter want to compete again?
Can he rely on Brody to run Last Call ? Brody has his own problems in his life and he has made it clear he does not want to be a partner
Does Gabby have the right to make the choice for him ?
i guess you will need to read the book to get the full story .......
i have no doubt that this series will be as big as The Off Series is and i can't wait to read Brody's Story
