Kurzbeschreibung

Opposites attract in a sexy tale of unexpected love

When the Dempsey patriarch suffers a heart attack, Lucas Dempsey steps up to keep the doors of the family restaurant open. The proverbial prodigal son returns home to Anchor Island—putting family first and his quest to make partner at his high-powered law firm on hold. Sporting a bruised ego after losing his fiancée to his older brother, Lucas would rather walk on glass than spend six weeks within spitting distance of the happy couple. But family duty calls. And that duty includes working side-by-side with a tantalizing spitfire intent on driving him mad.

Tough-as-nails boat mechanic Sid Navarro is happy to trade her tools for an apron to help the Dempseys in their time of need. That is, until she realizes she’ll be working alongside Lucas, the man she’s loved from afar since she first laid eyes on him in high school. Lucas could charm the paint off a schooner, but Sid knows she doesn’t fit his girl-next-door type. To show her true feelings would mean certain heartbreak, but the temptation of Lucas in her bed might be more than she can resist.

After a rocky start punctuated by verbal barbs and exasperating arguments, things heat up between them—big-time—but their steamy affair turns more than casual in a matter of weeks. Sid’s life has become the dream she’s always wanted, and Lucas has fallen hard for the last woman he ever expected to love.

But this affair has an end-date, as Lucas must return to his life and career in the big city, a place where Sid would never fit in. When the end comes earlier than expected, walking away turns out to be a challenge neither of them wants to win.

Up to the Challenge is a sexy, fast-paced, romantic story of family, island life, and finding love in unexpected places.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Born in the Ohio Valley, Terri relocated below the Mason Dixon line in the early 1990s after experiencing three blizzards in eighteen months. Seeking warmer climes and a career in the music business, she landed in Nashville and learned fast that getting a job on Music Row is not as easy as it sounds. Ironically, it wasn't until she left Nashville and moved to Arkansas that she found her way into radio. Never one to stay put for long, Terri eventually moved to the East Coast, settled near the ocean, earned her bachelor’s degree while raising a daughter, and joined cubicle land once again. But a love of romance novels soon found her writing her own. Five years and many pages later, in 2012, she was named a finalist in the Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® contest. An agent and contract soon followed. Terri now resides in Virginia with a teenager, a Yorkipoo, and two fat and happy tabbies.

Ich habe "Liebesglück auf Anchor Island" gelesen und fand das Buch so toll, dass ich das zweite Band auch direkt lesen wollte. Up to the Challenge ist allerdings noch viel viel schöner und vor allem emotionaler als das erste Buch und es war in wenigen Tagen direkt "ausgelesen". Wer eine schöne romantische Liebesgeschichte lesen will, der sollte sich dieses Buch unbedingt holen.
I absolutely loved this book!

My rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️

Growing up and working with predominantly men, mechanic Sid Navarro is not what you'd call known for her feminine ways. In fact, armed with toolbelt she is a regular around Joe Dempsey's charters, putting a blush on the cheeks of the dockworkers with her potty mouth! A young transplant to Anchor Island, Sid can't imagine living anywhere else. She has been adopted by the inhabitants, especially the Dempsters, who run the local family restaurant, and they know that under the baggy clothes and the foul mouth hides a small bodied but big hearted woman.

Determined to make his own mark on the world and get out from under the shadow of his older brother, Lucas Dempsey left Anchor Island over a decade ago to pursue a career in law. He was close to making partner in the prestigeous law firm where he works. But when the call comes that his father suffered a heart attack and is taken to the hospital, he arranges for an immediate leave of absence and returns to Anchor Island to help keep the family business afloat, while his father recovers. Of course it means working with that mouthy mechanic who doesn't know how to dress, but he'll take one for the family if he must.

Sid has had a crush on Lucas from afar since high school, but he disappeared shortly after to pursue his career, and never really got to know her. She became fast friends with his brother Joe however, and became important to his parents. Being thrown together working at the restaurant is proving to be a bit of a challenge. She can't help but antagonize him every chance she gets and he gives it right back. After the first few shifts working together however, things suddenly start heating up between them.

For all of her rough and tumble exterior, Lucas is able to glimpse some extremely enticing glimpses of a different Sid underneath and finds himself completely tuned in. He knows she is not necessarily 'law-partner' material, and he also knows his time on the island is limited, but he can't seem to keep his hands to himself. Sid claims she can deal the temporary label just fine and is happy with a casual fling. But when time comes to say goodbye, will they be able to walk away?

What a fun book!!!! I had a great time with Sid's character....... the back and forth banter.......the stubborn stereo-typical father Dempsey....... Willow's no nonsense approach....... I loved the entire cast of characters!!

Right from the first page, you are drawn in to the story and you can tell there is a sense of humour at play with a bit of a bite.......my kinda humour. What is interesting is that it doesn't seem to take away from any of the other 'emotions' that the story calls for either. Some of it is serious, sad, sexy, but mostly you'll find yourself ready with a chuckle.
The close-knit island community is brought to life in such a way, it makes you want to visit, at the very least! The comfort of places you stop daily, where they would worry if you didn't show...... where they know your preferences off hand. Where you don't really have to think about asking or even offering help when it's needed, you just know it's there..... Even if you have your differences among yourselves, when it comes down to it, you always stand as a community. That came across.

Lucas has been so focused on being in Joe's shadow, he doesn't realize he is the only one who sees himself as secondary to Joe. No one else does. He has nothing to prove to anyone but himself, and what he doesn't get is the best way to do that is by choosing what he wants, not what he thinks he should, and especially not based on what others might think. Opening up to Sid, who was so different from everything he was looking for in a good 'fit', went a long way in liberating Lucas.

Sid was never questioned on her slightly crass language, her cavalier attitude or her sloppy attire.......that is, until Lucas. Once he saw a hint what she was hiding underneath that tough outer veneer, he was curious to find out the full extent of the hidden treasure. Not one for male attention, Sid was always more comfortable in the role of friend than of love interest, which is why she had very limited experience with relationships. She had also, until fairly recently, not been exposed to many friendships with females her own age. So really, Sid was very much an innocent, who was just now starting to discover the power of being a woman.

My first experience reading Terri Osburn, but I can guarantee you, it will not be my last!! I am digging her style!!!

You won't go wrong with this book if you are looking for a fast-paced, funny, feisty and deliciously spicy read!!

✨A fierce, witty, tight and steamy tale of hidden charm!✨

HASH(0x8d88cb28) von 5 Sternen LOVED it! 22. Oktober 2013
Von Karen J - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely LOVED this book!!! I read the first in the series before hand so I would "know" everyone and it had me hooked! In Up to the Challenge, Lucas really redeems himself. Sid really made me laugh out loud at times and I just adored her! There was even a point that I was close to tears and that hasn't happened in a while. All in all a wonderful, heartwarming story about learning what is really important in life!! Cant wait for book 3 of this series! :)

HASH(0x8d4b7f78) von 5 Sternen Sassy, fun, romantic read, full of banter! Opposite's attract ♥ 22. Oktober 2013
Von Lorelei's Lit Lair - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Sid tries to hide her inner and outer beauty from all by putting a -don't mess with me-attitude and potty mouth as a front. When in reality she's this great, loving, caring (don't tell her I said that, she might hit me!) heroine you'll discover as she takes the chance to get closer to her long time crush, Lucas. He's oblivious to Sid's attraction, but when he gets a peek of what she's been hiding from all, it's like being struck out of nowhere. BAM! He didn't see that coming! And boy is he in trouble, he didn't expect to fall for a girl like her.
This is such a sassy, fun, romantic read! Had me laughing, swooning and enjoying the whole Anchor Island clan. Words that describe this sexy read are Chemistry, banter ( lots of banter!), opposite's attract, friendships and community. My only problem is having to wait for book number three, hurry up author, Terri Osburn! The Anchor Island series is another favorite!

I received an advanced readers copy for my honest opinion and give this romantic tale a 4.5 rating.

Von Jennifer B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm not sure where all the high ratings came from but if you are an adult, this book is not for you. Amateurish writing with much hand wringing and an abrupt ending. I bought book two at tge same time as I was looking for a new author. Deleted them both! Don't waste your time unless you're desperate.
