Synopsis (from Goodreads):
After seventeen-year-old Haley Sullivan meets a mysterious stranger who plays by his own rules, she's more than determined to learn every trick of the trade from the master himself. But her dream-chasing mentor disappears after that night, and according to the local newspapers, he's been dead for years. Knowing he's very much alive, Haley enlists best friend Linzi to join her on a scavenger-hunt-style road trip that ultimately lands them in the surf town of Crescent Cove, California. Mystery guy is no mystery here, though – he's Colby Taylor, the west coast's biggest professional surfer.

If Haley wants to talk to the wave rider again, she'll have to get past his four intimidating bodyguards who are highly skilled in the business of sending starstruck fangirls back to where they belong. Haley is up for the challenge if it means chasing her dreams and escaping the perfectly corporate future that's been planned for her. But dealing with these bodyguards isn't exactly what Haley imagined it'd be. Sure, being thrown off a jet ski sucks, but falling in love with one of them might just be worse.

My Review:
This book was really good, I really did enjoy reading it. It was full of adventure and fun moments, memories to be kept always. It was a challenge because chasing someone who you didn’t even know is like hunting for treasure that can’t be found until someone helps you. I just can imagine every details of the book and I miss my beach days with my friends. Road trips are always the best when you’re either with family or friends. I kind of know the feeling of not wanting to go back to reality.

This story is full of happy emotions that was one of the reasons why I enjoyed reading it, I loved the characters they were very friendly all except Colby/Spencer. If this ever happened in real life it would have been fun, I liked how the author created the story with twists and turn it was exciting especially with Vin in the mix.

But the unexpected love romance between 2 of the characters was really unexpected, I liked them both very much (stink the book ended). From one badass guy to this unreal romantic guy the next was good I think it suited him well and to the girl who went with her gut and chased her dream yet found her someone was worth reading the book.
