Review: On the Rocks

Title: On the Rocks (LAst Call #1) 
Author: Sawyer Bennett 
Synopsis: 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.

My Review: 

On the Rocks is an easy and light reading with a very interesting start that hooks you to the story.This is the first book I read of Sawyer Bennett and I really like her writing style.
It has a really hot main character, Hunter, with a very likeable female protagonist though I didn´t like Gabby´s behaviour in the end, is kind of understandable but I still didn´t liked it and the fact Hunter just let her go away didn´t fit with the image I had of Hunter.
On the Rocks has also wonderful secondary characters, there were times when I wanted to read more about Brody that about Hunter, can´t wait to read about Brody and Alyssa, the author was able to write a story while creating a lot of suspense around the upcoming couples.

It is a reading full of twists, sexual tension and funny moments. I really enjoyed reading On the Rocks and I can´t wait for the next book on this series!
