When seventeen-year-old Haley Sullivan is dragged to a corporate party with her parents, she's searching for one thing - the nearest exit. Instead, she finds a mysterious stranger who plays by his own rules and chases his own dreams, and he's definitely cute enough to disappear with for the night. Convinced that he can help her escape the perfectly corporate future that's been planned for her, Haley agrees to meet him the next day. However, Mr. Mysterious is a no show.
Determined to track him down, Haley enlists her best friend Linzi to help, but according to the local newspapers, the guy she met has been dead for years. Knowing he's very much alive, Haley and Linzi follow clues on a scavenger-hunt-style road trip that ultimately lands them in the surf town of Crescent Cove, California, where her mystery guy is no mystery at all. He's living as Colby Taylor, the west coast's biggest professional surfer.
But talking to the surf star again is nearly impossible when he's guarded by a hierarchy of beach bums who are determined to send Haley back to the east coast. Haley is up for the challenge of submerging herself in their world, from wild summer nights and beach parties to ocean air and secret kisses in the dark, but when the lines blur between the ocean and the shore, she isn't so sure she's here for Colby anymore. Sure, being thrown off a jet ski sucks, but falling in love with one of these California boys might just be worse.
(This is book #1 of the Drenaline Surf series but can be read as a stand-alone novel.)

Chasing Forever has never been this fun

Her journey and the amazing people she meets along the way make this book a highly enjoyable read filled with hope. If you’re looking for a beach read that makes you feel much more than your typical beach read, this one is for you.
Great Summer Read
I loved everything about this novel. It's a fun summer read with hot surfers and a fun group of friends. Highly recommend!
Loved this book
I received this book for an honest review from the author. Can I just say I'm super excited that she choose me for this. I loved this book from the first moment to the end. I loved how Haley kinda found herself on this little journey to track down Colby Taylor. The guys she meets once she gets to Crescent Cove are great. I enjoyed all of them except for Alston and Colby Taylor. Maybe because Alston wasn't included in it so much and Colby just seemed like a ahole. I felt like Haley had a connection with all the guys. I loved all the guys and wish I had a Topher, Miles, Kale, Strick, Vin and AJ in my life. I'm going to always think of Topher when I see sugar cubes. And can I just say I thought of your sister when the girls ran into Emily on the strip. I loved this book and will def recommend it. Also this book made me smile, laugh and even get a little teary eyed. Can't wait to read the next book. Just purchased it.
