Off the Hook Review & Giveaway with Laura Drewry

Off the Hook

Fishing for Trouble #1

By: Laura Drewry
Releasing April 12, 2016


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.

Already right off the bat I am in love with this new series by Drewry. It's new, funny and has everything I look for in a read.

Kate is looking forward to moving up in the Foster Group where she works but in order to do that she needs to do manual labor at the Buoys in order to get the place up and running so the new owners can sell it. But when she arrives she is in the shock of her life when she comes face to face with the man who left her alone and broke in a hotel room in Vegas. Is working with her ex husband going to be awkward? Absolutely but she will have to just get the job done.

Liam has only loved one thing and that's baseball but while he is recovering from an injury and looking for a new team to pick up his contract he is helping his brothers restore the family home. Although they agreed to have some help he never expected to see Kate again. Sure he never forgot her but working with her this closely will have him smitten all over again.

Can I say again how much I actually loved this book? The plot was different and honestly I was super excited just because of that. Sometimes I get tired of reading the same things over and over again so I'm glad this book just stood out from the others.

The characters were far from ordinary. Each and every one of them just stood out but for many different reasons. Between Kate and Liam I wasn't sure who my favorite was because honestly they both had strong qualities that just stood out. They are both smart, funny, driven and most of all want a place where they belong. I couldn't get enough of them as a couple.

So these two characters haven't seen each other in 10 years so tension was running high but the way they fell into each other was intoxicating. They had funny banter, hot sex scenes, and a second chance at love. Neither of course knew where it would go but when they finally got together I had to literally hold my excitement.

Of course the sexy Liam has two brothers. One is older and another younger but I honestly can't wait for them to each have their own stories. They both have their own opinions on getting married so I'm excited to see who they end up with and what will happen along the way.

Honestly I loved this book and the ending has a HEA that I was completely smitten with! It's about time the heroine took it upon herself to get everything she wanted and to help the man who stole her heart!
