Author: Katherine Hastings
Genre: Romantic Comedy (standalone)
Release Date: May 22, 2019
When Ellie awoke with an epic hangover the day after she caught her boyfriend cheating, it wasn’t the pounding in her head causing her to scream… it was the discovery of the late-night incoherent message she sent to the boy she loved twelve years ago. The one she hadn’t seen since their week-long whirlwind summer romance when they were only eighteen. The one she gave her heart to and forgot to take it back. You know… the big one.
After they reconnect online and the years hadn’t diminished their chemistry one bit, a few martinis and her meddling wingmen convince her to hop on a plane and surprise him… in Italy. After sobering up somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, she regrets her decision to drop in on him unannounced, but when she arrives and she sees the boy she loved standing before her as a gorgeous man, she puts aside her fears to see if he’s still the one. She ends up on the journey of a lifetime finding out if it’s possible she met her soulmate at the ripe old age of eighteen, or if she needs to swear off the trouble-inducing booze for good.

Can an heiress get down and dirty with a local lifeguard…for longer than one night?
When a hippie girl with a free spirit grows up in an “old money” conservative family, arguments are sure to ensue. Right before her thirtieth birthday, Sage’s father, sick of her bohemian lifestyle, gives her an ultimatum – tear down The Surf Shack in Huntington Beach and build a five-star restaurant, or lose her trust fund AND his multi-billion dollar company.
Jax, the owner of The Surf Shack, has vowed to keep his late father’s shop running while juggling his full-time job as a beach lifeguard…even if the hot little thing in a business suit tempts him with her conflicting personalities. Is she a business shark in a designer suit? Or a Mother Earth loving hippie who wants to get dirty with him?
Ultimately, they’ll have to decide what’s worth fighting for: love or legacy.
