seriously romantic: off the hook by laura drewry
well there is no good way to share all that. off the hook is a great second-chance-at-love story though. the tension between liam and kate sizzles from the start, but they are all focussed on getting the lodge back in working order. the only problem is the looming tax bill due in a month. the tax bill issue provides enough of a complication that it helps inform the story, but it all reads naturally. the best part of the book is the relationship that builds between liam and kate, as well as the relationships between everyone working at the lodge. liam's brother, finn, and jessie, the long-term manager both add something more to the story. because in some way the story is not just about rebuilding this lodge. it's about rebuilding this family.
their childhood was horrid. and the boys all carry a lot of baggage. and in off the hook we get to see how liam's baggage is lightened. and i can't wait to see what the other books in the series have in store for finn and ronan, the eldest o'donnell brother.
