She’s in over her head and he’s in hot water…
Visiting her friends Ellie and Charlie in Hawaii was supposed to be a much-needed vacation for journalist Justine Simms. But when she learns the notoriously reclusive pro-surfer Chase Ryder is coming out of retirement for a competition, she knows she’s found the perfect exclusive to save her career. Of course, then she learns he’s the gorgeous, secretly nerdy guy who broke her heart a year ago.
Will Davenport—aka Chase Ryder—doesn’t do interviews. He keeps his real name out of the papers and doesn’t mix his public life with his private. That is, until the still-heartbroken Justine blackmails him into giving her an exclusive. Seeing Justine, stunningly beautiful as ever, brings back all the feelings he had before. But despite their smoldering attraction, nothing has changed since he had to leave her the first time.

Short and sweet, there's a lot to like in this novella:
1) Will, AKA Chase Ryder, is a Clark Kent-type hero--part-time geeky tech guy, part-time surfing god.
2) It's set in HAWAII.
3) The bathing-suit-shopping scene.
4) We get to see Ellie and Charlie from Falling For Her Soldier again.

I had the perfect set up when reading this book; outside next to a pool, with the sun out and a nice big sunhat. That only thing better would be sitting on the beach.

Fabulous second chance story. Breezed through it, and loved every page of it. Chase/Will and Justine are both wonderful to read. Love the heat—super mild, for those concerned—and the humour. It's comfortably predictable, which I find is often... ...more
