She’s in over her head and he’s in hot water…
Visiting her friends Ellie and Charlie in Hawaii was supposed to be a much-needed vacation for journalist Justine Simms. But when she learns the notoriously reclusive pro-surfer Chase Ryder is coming out of retirement for a competition, she knows she’s found the perfect exclusive to save her career. Of course, then she learns he’s the gorgeous, secretly nerdy guy who broke her heart a year ago.
Will Davenport—aka Chase Ryder—doesn't do interviews. He keeps his real name out of the papers and doesn’t mix his public life with his private. That is, until the still-heartbroken Justine blackmails him into giving her an exclusive. Seeing Justine, stunningly beautiful as ever, brings back all the feelings he had before. But despite their smoldering attraction, nothing has changed since he had to leave her the first time.
A cute novella, full of summer, surfing and love.
Justine and Will had had a short relationship few years back, that had affected both of them greatly, and even though it ended badly, couldn't forget each other.
Now they meet again, and the secrets Will had been keeping from her, unravel. Justine gets the break with her career, she had been looking for, but makes a mistake in the process, that puts the relationship in danger again.
Will and Justine were great together, the secrets Will had been keeping from everyone had a good base, and I am glad that didn't cause angst between them.
The mistake Justine makes is predictable. I'm just glad that the misgiving and anger didn't linger too long.
It was a sweet, fun, and a quick read. Made me long for the hot summer days
