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.
Grace use to be part of Sawyer’s family, but when her mom betrayed them, it was something that could not be forgiven. Grace and Jack were step-siblings, but felt they were attracted to each other, which led them to a kiss. Years later Grace and Jack meet again in a situation, were Grace needs a new job and Jack needs an office assistant. Jack knows it’s not the best idea to hire Grace, but still gives her the job. Since Grace and Jack met they still feel attraction between them and to see where it goes, they decided to keep it as a secret. Secrets are not so easy to hide, what happens if it all comes out?
I really enjoyed the small town setting and the romance between Grace and Jack. There was a great set of characters and I can’t wait to read more about the secondary characters as well. I think the pacing in the book was great and gave a good foundation for the next book in the series. I had a great time reading it.
