ON THE ROCKS (Last Call #1) by Sawyer Bennett
He left to travel the world for fame and glory, but only after spurning Gabby Ward and crushing her young heart. Now Hunter Markham has come back home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open up Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.
Gabby Ward is not happy that Hunter has returned. Bitter over his rebuff years before, she’s 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 an offer to her that she simply can’t refuse, throwing them together in a common quest to each reach their goals. Working together day in and day out proves to be problematic for Gabby, who soon realizes that the feelings she had for him are still very much alive. Hunter struggles to reach through to Gabby’s cold heart, all while starting a new career away from his life as a top ranked, professional surfer.
What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither of them can continue to deny.
Hard choices lay ahead for both of them when Hunter is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to return to the pro surfing tour.
Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they ever had dared to hope.
Oh my goodness this book was amazing! I didn’t want it to end! I absolutely loved Hunter and Gabby’s story! He is the older brother of her best friend that she’s had a crush on most of her life. They share a life altering kiss when she finally turns 18, but Hunter still views her as off limits, and things end with Gabby getting her heart crushed. Years later, they come together for a work project and sparks fly, only Gabby is fighting the pull to Hunter because she doesn’t want to get hurt again. When they finally come together it’s fast and hard and I loved every single moment of it! I HIGHLY recommend this book! I cannot wait for Make It a Double (Last Call #2) to come out! It’s about Hunter’s brother Brody, and sounds like it’s going to be really good!
