He spurned Gabby Ward once, crushing her young heart, and then left to travel the world for fame and glory. 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.

 My Thoughts:

Gabby has always had a thing for her best friends older brother and on her graduation day she took the chance to kiss him. Which then led to him rejecting her. Its been years since then and hunter is retiring from his surfing career to open a bar. Hunter hired Gabby to fix his bar and shes still a bit bitter. The more they work together on the bar the more harder it is to deny that attraction. 

When I was offered a chance to get an ARC of this book I was sure to jump on the chance. Sawyer Bennett is such a fantastic author and I've never been disappointed. That goes to say that I loved this book. This is a book on second chances and I loved watching the connection between Gabby and Hunter. I loved that I got both point of views of the main characters. I really enjoyed the characters, I was especially curious about Brody and Alyssa and can't wait to see their story. This book was well written, fast paced and full of steamy moments.5 of 5 Stars!
