A sexy surfer helps a depressed lawyer recover from depression and sexual repression.


She follows all the rules.

He's going to teach her how to break them.

After a heartbreaking tragedy, successful attorney Amelia Crowley has numbed herself to the pleasures of life, clinging to a specific set of rules, finding strength in order and organization. When she meets easy going surfer Ryan Fielding, that organized life is turned upside down by a sea of washboard abs and sun-kissed hair.

Sexy and charismatic, Ryan looks for pleasure however he can find it in an effort to silence his own inner demons. Until Amelia crashed into his life the only thing he chased was the next wave. Refusing to break their connection and determined to break through her carefully crafted walls, Ryan sets out to throw out every rule in her book and show Amelia that pleasure can't be planned. 

Can Amelia let Ryan take the lead or will she cling to her rules and wipe out their chance at love?

So love this book! Love that there is no major cliché conflict! I just love how the main character progressed. I wish I find my own sun god! I love the part where he loved her since high school 😍

 #NBR Yes intrigued good pitch.  I generally like to read more than the one chapter if it is a novel to get a better feel of the book.

I absolutely love the pitch. I may need to rethink my evening plans...
                              Although to be frank you had me already at the words "panty-dropping romance." :)
