Catch and Release by Laura Drewry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've been invested in this series of brothers who own and run a down-on-it's-luck fishing island, The Buoys, since the beginning. I really enjoyed the final brother's story. Ronan has been broody, prickly and carrying a big chip on his shoulder for so long that he doesn't know any other way to live. I anticipated this Ronan's story.
The Buoys continued to hedge towards success in this book with a second series of Hooked being filmed and here entered Hope, the new producer. Hope was a talented but tentative woman, wary of Ronan and both overwhelmed by his looks and his bad behaviour. Yet, there was tension there. This was a show burn and it was written so well; these two connecting was like a triumph.
I was edging towards a 3.5 star rating and then a twist occurred that I wasn't expecting and I got a grand culmination to the series that I didn't know I needed. It was a super satisfying end.
A copy of this book was provided by the author through netgalley in return for a honest review.
