Welcome to the On the Rocks tour by Sawyer Bennett! This was an awesome start to what is sure to be an amazing new series! Check out my review!
Adult Contemporary Romance
Releasing February 17, 2014
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.
Sawyer Bennett does it again! This is a great start to another great series! Gabby has had a rough life. After she graduated high school, after a night of fun, she kisses the boy she has loved for some time. Unfortunately for her, he completely denies her. The trouble is he is her best friend’s brother and they are always around each other. As times goes on they just fight and bicker. Luckily Hunter is a pro surfer so he is gone a lot. When Hunter’s twin brother Brody gets out of jail Hunter is brought back into Gabby’s life. They still bicker and generally don’t like each other but, Hunter needs work done on the bar and Gabby’s just the girl to do it! Will they be able to work together without killing each other? Or will this be the thing that fixes them?
I loved Brody. I am so excited that we will get his story next. He is a very interesting guy. After getting out of jail he is working at the bar with Hunter. It seems like he is having a hard time re-entering the world. His story should be fun! Casey is Brody and Hunters sister and Gabby’s BFF. They have been friends forever and have a great relationship. Gabby and Casey have been through a lot together.
Hunter and Gabby have a roller coaster relationship. The love and hate each other. After being around each other they break. Gabby tells Hunter how much he hurt her and she is having a hard time getting over his playboy past. Will Hunter change for her? The book is in both of their POV’s and so we get Hunters side too. Hunter is more in love with Gabby then she realizes. It’s awesome to see a guy pining for a girl for once! Things get a little dicey when Hunters ex comes to town. Can Gabby and Hunter survive their family and friends? Will they get their happily ever after?
I LOVED this book! I can’t wait for the next one. Sawyer Bennett writes some amazing books! Keep them coming lady!
