As always, Serena Bell’s newest romance has plenty of heart, plenty of steaminess, and strong MCs who know what they want and are willing to go after it. After almost losing her identity to a controlling boyfriend, Auburn is back at the Oregon seaside inn that was her employer and second home throughout HS and college, trying to get her life back on track and reclaim her dreams. She’s always dreamed of eventually buying the inn from her surrogate dad once he retires but after he suffers a heart attack, she’s in for quite a shock when his wealthy, arrogant grandson shows up and reveals that not only is he the majority owner of the inn, he has already arranged to sell it to a development company.

Trey learned a long time ago that the only way to protect those he loves is to make a lot of money. Now he’s in a bind. He needs to sell the inn to buy enough time to save his own company and prevent 150 employees from losing their jobs, but to do so, he’ll have to ignore his grandfather’s wishes and crush Auburn’s hopes, in spite of the very inconvenient attraction and admiration he’s felt for her from the moment he saw her. Auburn will need every bit of her strength and smarts to fight him and to get the means to buy the inn.

This was a lovely romance. Auburn and Trey were combustible together with chemistry in spades. The setting was gorgeous and made me want to immediately book a long weekend at the Beachcrest Inn. Looking forward to more stories set in Tierney Bay, most likely featuring Auburn’s siblings.

I received an ARC from the author. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
