Publisher's Summary

Prodigal son Lucas Dempsey reluctantly returns home to Anchor Island. Following his father’s heart attack, the whole Dempsey clan has to step up to keep the family restaurant afloat. For Lucas this means putting family first and his quest to make partner at his high-powered law firm on hold.
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 - until she realizes she’ll be spending her days alongside Lucas, the man she’s loved from afar since high school. Playful verbal sparring leads to a smoldering but temporary summer fling that has them both falling hard within weeks.
When the time comes for Lucas to return to his life in the big city, a place where Sid would never fit in, the lovers face a challenge neither saw coming. Do they ignore their feelings and walk away, or sacrifice their dreams to follow their hearts?
Up to the Challenge is a sexy, fast-paced, romantic story of family, island life, and finding love in unexpected places.

this book was better that the first in this series

This book developed the characters and had better dialog than the first. I almost didn't read it because the first was so awful. Now I can't wait to start book three.

Unlikely pairing

I've been looking forward to Lucas' story and his HEA. But Sid? Really? Lucas is urbane and sophisticated. Sid is so purposefully inappropriate, the only thing missing is the tobacco spitting. And that's the thing. SIDS behavior is PURPOSEFULLY inappropriate. She could be kinder, less crude, etc and still fix boats. She just chooses not to. So no, I don't believe this pairing at all.
