Ally would sacrifice anything for her family. Luca is so close to achieving his dream. But when it’s either her dad or his aspirations will they choose their own paths or each other?
A perfect job in an ideal location. That’s the life Ally Larsen is about to step into. Until one phone call changes it all. Her father has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and all of his care and medical bills have fallen to her mom. Knowing she can’t abandon her family in their time of need, Ally is returning to her island home of Maui, her dashed plans all but forgotten.
Luca Heathcliff knows his reputation isn’t stellar. Ever since he was betrayed by his twin and had his heart broken by his girlfriend, he’s dated no one woman for more than a few dates and spent all of his free time on the waves. But it’s time to grow up. Ready to have his twin take him seriously, Luca decides it’s time to change part of his reputation—he’ll never fall in love again—but he’s presented an opportunity to possibly become a professional surfer. Not only would that contract show that Luca can be mature and capable about one part of his life, it would prove to his brother, once and for all, that Luca is good for something.
But when a picture of Luca looking inept in the surf goes viral his entire dream could be lost. And not only that, his mother has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s and Luca isn’t sure what to do. Only after he meets Ally does Luca start to feel some direction again…but can Luca get over past hurts enough to open his heart again? Or will the truth of the picture come back to haunt the budding romance and obliterate it before it can begin?
