Synopsis: Allison Robbins needs to relax… or else.
The middle child in a family chock-full of Type A’s, she’s determined to get promoted before she turns thirty. What she doesn’t anticipate: panic attacks that look like heart attacks, just before one of the biggest presentations of her career. Under doctor’s orders Allison has to find a nice, physical hobby.
After a series of unfortunate attempts, she finally settles on the perfect pursuit for a California girl: surfing. She’s even commandeered the services of surf instructor Sean Gilroy — just the guy to teach Allison’s uptight self how to chill. But aside from being unsettlingly cute in a wet suit, Sean seems like the stereotypical surfer: casual, laid-back and entirely certain that things will take care of themselves. In other words, the polar opposite of Allison’s world of stress, coffee and more stress.
Sean Gilroy has never experienced anything like the force of nature that is Allison. Before he knows it, they’re making each other crazy — and making each other hot. But he’s worried that she’s never going to embrace his lifestyle — and that the changes he’d have to make to fit into her life would destroy the core of the person he is.
As he learns to step up, and she learns to hang out, the two of them learn one important thing: sometimes, the last person you expect to fall for is the one person you really need.
Review: I had had this novel for a long time and I wanted to have a good time so I took it out of the back of my TBR pile.
I had already read some good novels by this author and I was curious to see how this one would turn out. However, I have to say that even though I insisted, I couldn’t get hooked on the story or the characters that left me indifferent.
So I preferred to give up.
