Review: Luck and Last Resorts

This is by far one of the best books I’ve read this year. Nina and Ollie are both charming and heartbreaking, and I found myself flipping page after page rooting for them. I loved the charter boat staff premise. It felt unique and fun Grunder-Ruiz’s writing is wonderful and her dialogue is top-notch. I loved the charter boat staff premise. It’s a unique, fun setting filled with characters that are easy to love.



They have a second chance at love, but there are some rough seas ahead in the new contemporary romance from the acclaimed author of Love, Lists, and Fancy Ships.

Commitment-phobe Nina Lejeune lives by two rules:

1. Always have fun.

2. Don’t rely on anyone but yourself.

The first rule is easy; the second, she’s only broken once.

Ten years after fleeing home, Nina is the chief stewardess on the super yacht Serendipity, single by choice, and perfectly content with how life has turned out.

But Nina’s ex-coworker and old flame, Irish chef Ollie Dunne, isn’t so happy with the status quo. One year after leaving yachting, he’s returned as the Serendipity’s chef with an ultimatum: if Nina continues to deny she’s in love with him by the end of this charter season, he’ll go back to Ireland for good.

Nina and Ollie’s shared secret from their past threatens to shipwreck not only their relationship, but the entire boat. But as their connection grows amidst chaotic guests and crew drama, could there be smooth sailing in their future?
