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.
Review: Last Call #1: On The Rocks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
On the Rocks by Sawyer Bennett is the first book in her Last Call series. It is a fast-paced, witty romance with a wonderfully snarky female lead and a perfectly alpha-yet-caring male lead.
Gabby has pushed her life-long crush for Hunter way deep down after his crushing rejection five years ago, but now, the survival of her deceased father's construction company she now runs is relying on Hunters acceptance of her bid on the renovation of his new bar, Last Call.
Hunter knows he hurt Gabby five years ago when he crushed her on her graduation night. He just never expected to want to kiss her back so badly or the depth of emotion she brought forth. She was his little sisters best friend and practically his sister, except, you don't feel this way about a sister. Now she's spent the past five years hating him and they've done nothing but argue. He wants her but cannot get past her anger at him.
When he accepts her bid all bets are off. He is determined to break down her walls and she won't let them down, scared he's going to return to the pro-surfing circuit and leave her alone and broken-hearted again. This time, it would kill her.
Awesome book - can't wait to hear Brody's story. The characters are well-developed, and you will find yourself wanting to drive to the Outer Banks to find this bar and hang out with these people.
