For years, Jack Sawyer’s family has been running their upscale seafood business like a finely tuned machine. But every machine breaks down eventually, and suddenly Jack needs a new office manager, a new kayak launch, and a new lease on life. Then Grace Donner shows up again. She’s smart, motivated, and perfect for the manager position, but if she’s anything like her mom, she can’t be trusted. And Jack has never been able to trust himself around Grace.
Grace hasn’t seen her former stepbrothers since their parents’ messy divorce, but she never forgot them—especially Jack. She misses being part of the big rambunctious Sawyer clan, and if there’s an opportunity to set things right, she means to do it. But she can’t ignore Jack’s irresistibly kissable lips, or the searing way he looks at her when he thinks she’s not looking. Their chemistry is more explosive than ever. And if the Sawyers can forgive and forget, anything is possible.
This was a great read for second chance, it was also the first one I’ve read that involve step siblings falling for each other. I was leery at first I wont lie, it seemed like a faux pas, but I am glad I read it. I love the relationships and town, the characters are well written and made me want more. Annie did a great job at making Jack so forgiving and easygoing, very middle child behavior. Grace has such a good heart and I loved the two of them together. With so many issues on both side of their families though I was curious how they would find their HEA. I was thrilled to know this was a four book series and I could know more about their relationship in other books. You will love their journey! As a lover of series books I have to commend Annie on keeping her characters true to who they are in not just their book but the others as well.
