The world of extreme sports just got a little steamier! Zoe Dawson’s pulse-pounding, emotional series follows the wily young female agents of Mavrick Allstars as they chase their dreams—and meet the chiseled athletes who make them come true.

Helena “Lena” Mavrick is ready to prove that she can play with the big boys. Working at her father’s internationally renowned agency, Mavrick Allstars, Lena sets her sights on one of the most coveted phenoms out there: a twenty-four-year-old surfer caught ripping it in a viral skateboarding video. Signing him would be a huge win—and his marketing appeal isn’t the only thing that makes Lena’s heart skip a beat. Trouble is, fraternizing with the client is against company policy.

Professional surfer Gunner Smith lives under the absolute control of his coach—until he takes the ultimate risk and starts over as a skateboarder. Gunner swore he wouldn’t give up his freedom again, but Lena’s out-of-the-blue offer makes him think long and hard. She’s smart, she’s bold, she’s got sponsors lined up around the corner—plus she’s drop-dead gorgeous. He’s just not sure his coach will let him get away that easily, because he’s not just Gunner’s coach, he’s also his father.

Gunner is used to hiding his tortured past. But when his steamy affair with Lena threatens their future, he must decide whether he will sacrifice everything for the woman who’s stolen his heart.

HANDLING SKYLAR, a contemporary romance by ZOE, releasing October 17, 2016 and is the second book in the Resisting the Fall series, part of my Hope Parish Novels.

Jake Sutton: In the middle between Chase and River Pearl and caught between his own hopes and dreams and his family obligations. He’s arrogant, privileged, and chafes at buckling under his father’s yoke. He’s six feet of danger with dark blonde hair and green eyes. He’s more hot-headed than Chase, and less diplomatic than River. He struggles with his resentment of Chase who he feels betrayed not only him, but his family when he lost it and disappeared. His inability at finding balance is only eclipsed by the love he has for his family, especially his protectiveness of his sister, River. It’ll take a strong, no-nonsense woman to tame the middle Sutton sibling. What happens when Jake falls for a woman that’s nowhere near his social status?


Skylar Bransom lost everything when she lost her family’s legacy to the bank. Trying to salvage her life, she moved to Suttontowne to open up and manage the Blue Coyote Spa. Immersing herself in her work is what she needed to overcome her feelings of failure and loss. But then Jake Sutton stepped into her life and slammed those deep green eyes of his into hers. He’s one of the town’s golden boys and he carries the weight of his family’s burdens as once Skylar carried hers. Being the girl from the wrong side of the tracks is not appealing to her. But when she loses her heart to Jake, can Jake overcome his own family pressures? And when something from her past threatens her, will Jake be the man she needs?

Jake Sutton has conceded and done everything his family expected of him. He’s gone to the right school, learned the family business from the ground up, associated with the right people, and stayed within his own golden boy circle but ever since he met cowgirl Skylar with her gorgeous eyes and no nonsense personality, he hasn’t been able to get her off his mind. He feels responsible for rebuilding the family name and that means the right woman on his arm and in his bed. As Jake struggles with status and love, he wrestles with his relationship with his family and his brother Chase. As deep dark emotions tear him apart, will Sky be the woman who can show him the way? Or will he buckle under once again and break both their hearts?
