About the book:
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.
About the author:

Sawyer would like to report she doesn’t have many weaknesses but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.
I love Sawyer Bennett’s covers but it took me a few minutes and some close up scrutiny to figure this one out. Don’t get me wrong, holy hotness!!! But I think the picture shouldn’t have been cropped so close b/c it’s hard to figure out that it’s Hunter’s arm coming across the front and it’s his fist on his left cheek. It’s almost like you need both hands in the picture for your brain to complete the thought that it’s Hunter’s arms in front of him. At very first glance at the cover, I thought Hunter was looking at me from over a girl’s shoulder, so my mind kept trying to complete that picture. At my age, my brain is addled so there’s that…
