Off The Hook

An admitted fan of the work of Laura Drewry, I couldn’t pass up the chance to read her new book that highlights a second chance romance.  Ten years ago Liam and Kate were married in Vegas in one of those ‘youthful foolish moments’.  That moment impacted them both to this day, and now things are starting to heat up.

Liam always wanted to be a professional baseball pitcher, and single mindedly pursued that dream. After success and achievement, his pitching career is coming to an end, and it’s time for him to pitch in with the family business, a fishing retreat called The Buoys on an offshore island, getting it profitable and ready to withstand the threat from development into a typical retreat.

Kate works for the developer that is interested in the Buoys, but doesn’t expect to see Liam there, and instantly the memories of their moments, and her leaving him alone in Vegas are stirred.  While she wants to ensure her position in the company and continue her career trajectory, she’s not sure she can work with Liam (or against him).

These two actually are mature enough to realize that they need to communicate and work to SOME end, neither actually does, at first meeting, think it will be a rekindling of their relationship. Drewry built these two so well, showing their weaknesses and strengths, the effect their short relationship had on them both, and the sparks that still are smoldering there. Perfect for one another, Liam and Kate slowly discover that a second chance for them is something that can’t be ignored.

About the Book:

Welcome to The Buoys, a West Coast haven where love comes in with the tide. Perfect for readers of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery, the Fishing for Trouble series features three unforgettable brothers—each of whom is a great catch.

Major league pitcher Liam O'Donnell knows his best days are probably behind him, but that doesn't mean he's ready to retire and become a fishing guide. Still, after all the time he's spent chasing his dreams, he owes it to his brothers to pull his weight around the lodge. The Buoys is their father's legacy, and they can't let some developer take it from them. The one snag Liam isn't counting on is a blast from the past: his ex-wife.

The moment Kate Hadley steps out of the seaplane, she knows this assignment is going to be trickier than she thought. She has to persuade the owners to sell—and one of them is Liam O'Donnell. Ten years ago, she made the biggest mistake of her life when she married Liam during a fling in Vegas. Now he's her only lifeline in the middle of nowhere. Kate's trying to keep things cool, but Liam just reminds her of the scorching few nights they spent together—and tempts her to make new memories that are just as steamy as the old.

They were almost to her cabin when she shocked the hell out of him by slipping her hand under his arm and nudging his shoulder with hers.

“You’re still a hotshot pitcher, you know. Don’t talk about that in the past tense.”

Liam blinked hard, then leaned in and pressed a slow kiss against her cheek. Half an inch, that’s how close he was to those soft, warm lips he remembered all too well, but no matter how much he ached to taste them again, he forced himself to pull back and smile down at her.

Besides his agent—who didn’t count, because Liam paid him to say it—Kate was the first and only one to even suggest he might have something left, and if she’d said it any other time or any other way, he might not have believed she was sincere.

But looking at her now, with her foot up on the porch, ready to go inside, there wasn’t the slightest trace of doubt in her eyes, just those damn bits of amber flickering like little beacons.

“I, uh . . .” Blowing out a hard breath, Liam shoved both hands through his hair, locked his fingers together, and took a step back. “I better go. It’d really screw things up here if we woke up married tomorrow.”

“Right. Good thinking,” she said, her mouth curling into a slow, knowing smile. “’Cause I promise you this, I won’t be nearly as nice the next time you divorce me.”
