Hunter Markham left home to travel the world for fame and glory, finding it as a top ranked professional surfer. Now he's returned home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open The Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.

Five years ago, Gabby Ward drunkenly threw herself at her best friend's brother, only to have her young heart crushed. Hunter is back but Gabby is 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 her an offer she simply can't refuse. Working together day in and day out proves problematic for two reasons--Gabby realizes her feelings for Hunter are still very much alive, while Hunter struggles to break through to Gabby's cold heart. What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither can deny.

But when the pro surfing tour comes knocking and Hunter has a chance to reclaim his former glory, hard choices lie ahead for both of them.

Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they could ever dare to hope in their second chance at romance.

About the Author

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Mary's strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.

An 18 year old is disillusioned by her crush and is bitter, still, 5 years later? Really? Good Lord.

Some of the reviews were wordier than the story. I actually liked the writing, but the extensive sex was unnecessary & gave it a porno effect.

Good plot idea, but it's ruined by unnecessarily foul language that takes the place of meaningful dialog. Shallow, predictable characters push the story more into the "soft porn" area than the tale about romance, redemption, or family that it could be ... but perhaps that was the author's intent. If so, it should be labeled as such.

Sawyer Bennett truly outdid herself with this story! Hunter and Gabby were made for one another. Their cosideration, truthfulness, and loyalty to one another helped them to withstand and conquer all obstacles! Loved it!!

This book was well written (with just a few grammatical errors), and the plot was excellent. I liked the characters because they all seemed very real and honest. I *especially* liked Gabby because she is a strong, ethical, self-assured, positive and independent woman with a healthy self-image and no room in her life for petty jealousies, insecurities or drama. She has a normal number of human flaws, and actively addresses them throughout the story. I found her absolutely refreshing. My only gripe about the book centers around the fact that at least HALF of it was made up of explicit, gratuitous sex scenes that added almost nothing to the story. I enjoy steamy romances as much as the next reader, but there needs to be a balance. Here, the sheer volume of sex detail actually interfered with the flow of the story. I would have appreciated a lot less flesh and a little more fleshing out of the plot!

This is a must read book! The Last Call Series is off to a great start with characters that we can identify with, dialogue that makes you laugh, and a plot that just pulls you in and consumes you. Although, there are editing errors and lots of them, sometimes you have to reread a line to make it make sense, IMO those can be ignored because of how well this story flowed. Because of said issue I gave it 4 stars. On the Rocks is the story of Gabby Ward, a General Contractor and Ex-Pro Surfer, Hunter Markham, who have known each other their whole lives. She fell in love with him at the tender age of 18 and Hunter turned her down and broke her heart. He moves back and opens a bar and employs his identical twin brother, Brody, who has just been released from prison for murder. The story involves the H/H finding love with each other as adults and secondary characters that have their own issues and I can't wait to read those books. Even though this is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone issue and it does not have a cliff hanger and but does contain a HEA.

Gaby has had a crush on her BFF's older brother for years. On graduation night they share a kiss & Gaby is heartbroken when Hunter says it was a mistake. Ever since she can't even stand to be in the same room as him. Hunter has made a name for himself on the surfing circuit & when circumstances bring him home, neither one can deny their attraction to the other. My first book of SB's was from her cold fury series (which I love). Now don't get me wrong, I liked this book but for me I thought it was missing the conflict. Even when you finally know something has to go down, it feels forced & very predictable. I definitely want to read the next book because I think Brody's    Story is going to be VERY interesting.
