Kellen Handler is a superstar surfer. All he cares about is surfing…nothing else matters anymore. After a tragic accident Kellen can’t seem to care for much except surfing and he has become a public relations nightmare. His manager steps in and gets him…under duress…to agree to work with a public relations firm. Kellen is not interested in cleaning up his image…but once he meets Gina…Gina Bellori works for the public relations company hired to clean up Kellen’s image. Gina does not want to be around the surfing world. She left that part of her life behind years ago.
Wow…talk about two wounded souls. Gina…god I really feel for her. What happened with her family and her boyfriend is just tragic. I can totally understand her reasoning for not wanting to be around the beach and all the memories that it brings. Gina is a great character because she moves past her fears and reservations to work with Kellen. She is a strong woman that and takes none of Kellen’s bullshit. I loved that she could stand up to him. Kellen…is such a mess. I really feel bad for him…sort of. He choose to be a jerk. He needs Gina to kick his ass and get out of the funk he is in. Together Kellen and Gina are really HOT! They both move past their grief and learn to live again.
From the Author:
Kellen Handler is in deep. Ever since he can remember, he’s wanted to be a professional surfer. And he made it, rising to the top of the ranks, traveling the world and riding every break he’s ever dreamed of. His good looks and reputation for living on the edge—both in and out of the water—have made him an international superstar. But when his best friend dies in a tragic accident, Kellen wipes out big time, spiraling so badly that everything he’s worked for starts to disintegrate.
Tour officials scramble to do damage control and demand he work with a public relations company to clean up his bad boy image. It doesn’t help that the person assigned to him, Gina Bellori, has her own demons associated with the surfing world. Against her better judgement Gina accepts the job and concentrates on repairing Kellen’s tattered reputation, despite his protests and despite the pain it causes her. With her past colliding with her present—and Kellen in the thick of it—she begins to realize that some secrets can’t stay hidden. And suddenly, Kellen Handler is no longer worried about losing his career. He’s more worried about losing his heart.
