On the Rocks (Last Call, #1)On the Rocks by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a new series from the amazing Sawyer Bennett. Having loved her “Off” series and recommended it to everyone I know, I have been bouncing up and down with excitement waiting for this first instalment from her new Last Call series.

Sawyer writes adult/contemporary romance exceptionally well and she is adept at capturing your imagination right from the get-go. With so many books out there now it must be hard for an author to keep finding new ideas and storylines but Sawyer has managed it with this series.

The story surrounds life-long, family friends, Hunter Markham and Gabby Ward. Hunter is a surfer who has been travelling the world and competing at the highest level. Gabby is a general contractor who has taken over her father’s business. After a post-graduation kiss which went disastrously wrong, Gabby is left licking reeling from Hunter’s abrupt rejection of her.

Here I stand on a darkened road with Hunter Markham kissing the hell out of me, and I never want to forget a single detail of this magical moment. It is the best thing that’s ever happened to me in my life and can only be surpassed by his continued kissing and his fervent declaration that he feels about me the way I feel about him.

Five years on and Hunter decides to suspend his surfing career and to return home to support his brother, Brody. In doing so, he decides to open up a bar and offers Gabby the chance of undertaking the refurbishments. Gabby though, whilst delighted to be working on such a project must put her emotions behind her and forget the feelings that she developed for Hunter 5 years ago. Despite their love/hate relationship, Hunter and Gabby soon realise that their feelings towards each other are not to be supressed and a tentative relationship commences between the two.

I hold these truths to be self-evident. I’m so f**king in love with Hunter, and yes, I know I’m quoting the Declaration of Independence to summarize my feelings at this point, bit that’s a damn good clause.

This story has it all, sweet romance, hot and passionate sex and of course someone in the side-lines trying to ruin what looks to be a HEA for Hunter and Gabby.

The supporting cast in this book leads you into the direction of future stories and relationships and I can’t wait for more from Brody.
