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.
Many points in this book I thought it was going to be like so many others, but this book managed to be refreshing the whole way through. Gabbys a smart lady!
Another great story from S.B
I ❤️ this story. Great characters, great setting and I can’t wait for the next instalment
I'm a huge Sawyer Bennett fan and this book did not disappoint. This story follows professional surfer Hunter (World #2) and his sister's best friend Gabby, who has crushed on him all her teenage life. At the age of 18 Gabby puts herself out there and Hunter pretty much shoots her down, right before he sets off to travel the world surfing. Fast forward 5 years and Hunter returns home, hey presto, who knew it, they're attracted to each other, there are however lots of obstacles in the way of their HEA, ex girlfriends, the urge (or not) for Hunter to go on tour again, gabby's stubborn nature. Can they choose each other? Does love conquer all? Loved the story, loved the writing (dual POV, my favourite), and both Gabby and Hunter are sizzling hot together. Can't wait to get stuck into the rest of the series.
