On the Rocks 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.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Hunter Markum is back and Gabby Ward is not happy. Once, long ago, she had a crush on Hunter, her best friend’s older brother. In the years since Hunter left the Outer Banks to pursue a career as a pro surfer, she has done her best to move on, but she's been unable to let go of the anger and pain that he caused her that night. Unfortunately, she needs Hunter to give her the job of remodeling his bar, and if being nice to him is the way to do that, she will suck it up and do so.

This time though, Hunter is not walking away from what he really wants and that's Gabby. He knows he hurt Gabby badly when he rebuffed her years ago, but he didn't want her to pine for him while he was living his life on the surfing circuit. Now though, he's back in North Carolina for good and all he wants is Gabby Ward.

Hunter and Gabby's story is filled with old pain and new; once resolved will it lead to happiness or heartache? Both? Each one is willing to sacrifice for the other, thinking that the other's wellbeing is more important than their own.
