Taylor Sutherland never planned on staying in Ocracoke forever, but the small coastal town in North Carolina is home and he would do anything to protect it.
Leilani Hart wants to prove herself to her father and be given the hotel re-design jobs she deserves. Hart international is a family business and she wants to continue it’s legacy, not just be relegated to the sidelines forever.
When Hart international purchases a local Ocracoke inn, Leilani sees it as her chance to shine, while Taylor and the townspeople see the potential for the ruin of their very way of life… and they aren’t going to take her renovation plans lightly…
I enjoyed this book so much! With humorous and authentic characters who you couldn’t help but love, I was instantly drawn into this story and couldn’t put it down.
Leilani is used to her father ignoring her, but she wants to show him what she is made of more than anything. Taking a big risk, she decides to take over the remodel of the inn at Ocracoke and dazzle him with her dedication and expertise. But, realizing that she has to win over the locals in her quest for completing the job, she may have her work cut out for her… especially with her not-so-welcoming town liaison.
Taylor lives life with as few entanglements as possible. As co-owner of a local boat tour business with his brother, the future plans for his town are very important to him. And he vehemently opposes the inn being torn down and replaced with something that won’t fit the history of Ocracoke. But, resisting Leilani and the inexplicable draw he has to her is easier said then done… plus pushing her buttons is his new favorite pastime…
I loved Leilani and Taylor’s initial meeting and their back and forth banter was just perfection. For two people to be on two opposite ends of a fight, their attraction and interest in each other inevitably will change everything they thought they knew…
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
