Review - On the Rocks (Turtle Island #3) by Kim Law

Sassy tomboy Ginger Atkinson would rather be captaining a deep-sea fishing boat than baking pies, yet she still wishes she had a man to bake for. Sure, the pretty redhead is happy running her late father’s Turtle Island ferry business, but everyone in the world is finding love except her. Stuck on the wrong side of thirty, she’s trying to accept singlehood by building a dream home—for one.
In high school, Carter Ridley loved to sneak off with his good friend Ginger to watch the sun rise over the ocean. But after graduation, his path took a different route. One that, unlike Ginger’s, did get him the spouse and house of his dreams. At least, until a scandal shattered everything.
Running from his heartbreak, Carter returns to Turtle Island, where he discovers that Ginger is all grown up. His teenage friend has become the woman he’s always wanted. But will Carter’s pain scare him away from a chance at happiness? Or can he be the loving partner Ginger’s been looking for?

Carter and Ginger were childhood friends who drifted apart when they left the island to pursue their dreams. Now he's back in Turtle Island, but he is no longer the person Ginger remembers. He is bitter, angry and stuck in rut. Ginger longs for love and marriage, but her tomboyish ways seem to make it difficult for her. She is the only one who seems to be able to through Carter's walls and soon they are picking up their friendship where they left off, except now there's an attraction that wasn't there before. I really enjoyed Carter and Ginger's relationship as it evolved from friends to lovers, and the way they helped each other deal with the reasons behind their troubles. The humor mixed in with the steamy and emotional scenes help to lighten the mood. Even though it is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I don't think I've ever been disappointed by on of Ms. Law's books, looking forward to the next one!

I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
