Luck & Last Resorts: A Novel by Sarah Grunder Ruiz

(Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book: (summary from Goodreads)

They have a second chance at love, but there are some rough seas ahead in the new contemporary romance from the acclaimed author of Love, Lists, and Fancy Ships.

Commitment-phobe Nina Lejeune lives by two rules: 
1. Always have fun. 
2. Don’t rely on anyone but yourself.
The first rule is easy; the second, she’s only broken once.

Ten years after fleeing home, Nina is the chief stewardess on the super yacht Serendipity, single by choice, and perfectly content with how life has turned out.

But Nina’s ex-coworker and old flame, Irish chef Ollie Dunne, isn’t so happy with the status quo. One year after leaving yachting, he’s returned as the Serendipity’s chef with an ultimatum: if Nina continues to deny she’s in love with him by the end of this charter season, he’ll go back to Ireland for good.

Nina and Ollie’s shared secret from their past threatens to shipwreck not only their relationship, but the entire boat. But as their connection grows amidst chaotic guests and crew drama, could there be smooth sailing in their future?

my thoughts:

Luck & Last Resorts by Sarah Grunder Ruiz is the second book in her series, and it is fantastic! I've yet to read the first book, Love, Lists & Fancy Ships, but I'm grabbing a copy ASAP. And just so you know, you can read Luck & Last Resorts as a standalone (like I did) and enjoy it immensely. The writing is fun and smart - you can't help but get caught up in all of the drama and fall in love with the characters. It is just such a treat to read. I enjoyed every second I spent with this book!

Nina and Ollie are exes. She's the chief stewardess on Serendipity and he's the new chef on the yacht. Ugh! Talk about awkward. Nina travels all the time and she does not want a serious relationship. Ollie is on his last voyage - he wants Nina to admit she is in love with him and commit to a relationship, or he will head back home to Ireland. Ultimatum, much? Yeah, Nina and Ollie both have baggage, but can they work through it in time before Ollie's ultimatum expires?

Definitely check out Luck & Last Resorts to find out what happens to Nina and Ollie, and to experience Sarah Grunder Ruiz's delightful storytelling - you will fall in love with it!
