Christian Montgomery has made the family business his entire world, working himself to complete burnout just to live up to his judgemental father's expectations. His only escape comes from gazing at the beach, watching surfers ride the waves without a care in the world and wishing he could be like them, even if just for a moment.
When Sophie Bennington discovers that everything she thought she knew about her life is a lie, she backs her bags and sets off for greener pastures, ready to put her small Kansas town and everything it holds behind her. California is the fresh start she needs and she quickly learns to embrace her new life, even if it's not exactly as she thought it would be. The one thing she didn't see coming: the stranger she meets on the beach who gives her the courage to go after her dreams.
They were never supposed to see each other again, but when Sophie comes to Christian's rescue, an unexpected friendship is born. But Christian wants more than friendship where Sophie is concerned. But first he'll have to show that he's someone she can trust.
All books in the Montgomery Brothers series can be read as standalones.
