Summertime visits with her dad is Kaia Anderson’s favorite part of the year. With the recent retirement of long-time tour surfer Neil Harper, her surf-coach dad has been frothing for the next surf star to call upon him. Unfortunately, this new surf star has overlapped with Kaia’s plans, which have been relocated to St. Catalina Island - a remote tropical paradise with choppy cell service, little Wi-Fi, and no connection to the California summer she’d dreamed of.
If it can be damaged, Dominic Richardson has probably had his hand on it. His reputation, his family’s name, and his longstanding friendship with the Drenaline Surf crew have all been ruined. Surfing the best swells on the planet with a stellar coach in his corner, Dominic’s slowly revamped his surf career and his family’s reputation. The only thing he’s missing is his former surf crew, the West Coast Hooligans.
Kaia is over Dominic before she even meets him. She doesn’t appreciate a spoiled, rich kid uprooting her summer, but Dominic doesn’t play into Kaia’s agenda to prove she’s right about him. He’s determined to be on his very best behavior and prove to everyone that he’s not the guy in the tabloids - and he might just make Kaia believe in him too.
