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?
“Gritty, complex, and real. I could not put this down!”—Abby Jimenez, New York Times bestselling author of Life's Too Short

Luck and Last Resorts is my favorite sort of love story -- one where the feelings are as strong and complicated and euphoric and messy as they can be in real life, and one where the characters, in all their flawed and frustrating humanity, are given the space to experience them all. Sarah Grunder Ruiz's writing is absorbing and affecting, perfectly tuned to the voices that populate this story.”Kate Clayborn, author of Love at First
 
Luck and Last Resorts is hands-down one of my favorite books I’ve read all year. I wish I could zap it from my memory just so that I can read it all over again for the very first time, savoring every page of Nina and Ollie’s laugh-out-loud banter, sizzling steam, and Sarah Grunder Ruiz’s God-tier unfolding of events in the characters’ past as they come together again in the present, hitting every emotional note just right. It’s the perfect second chance romance AND it’s the perfect enemies to lovers romance. I don’t think I’ll ever get over the charming and hilarious Nina and Ollie; they have my whole heart.”—Sarah Hogle, author of You Deserve Each Other
 
"I devoured Luck and Last Resorts in two sittings, and was instantly transported from a cold, grey London to the tropical warmth and blue skies of Florida aboard the Serendipity super yacht. This book has the perfect ingredients of flawed but lovable characters, warm-hearted humor and gorgeous, swoony romance, with a generous side helping of witty banter. I defy anyone not to fall in love with Nina and Ollie; this is the vacation read you NEED to pack."—Freya Sampson, author of The Last Chance Library
 
"You need to pay careful attention when you read Luck and Last Resorts. On the surface it’s a tangle of second-chance and friends-to-lovers between two beautiful people set on a yacht. Beneath this, however, lies an aching and poignant examination of the choices we make - or refuse to make - as we enter our thirties and decide what parts of ourselves we will carry on into the next stage in life. Grunder Ruiz has honed her writing and it is so smart you almost miss the skill. This is a deeply satisfying romance at the same time it’s a compelling novel about the reality of “starting over” and the tenacity of love in the face of a person’s obvious flaws. People may not be perfect, but this is a perfect romance."—Elizabeth Everett, author of The Perfect Equation

“With a perfectly saucy heroine and a delightfully grumpy Irish hero, it’s easy to fall head over heels for Sarah Grunder Ruiz’s lovable leads. Luck and Last Resorts is full of yearning, hope, and hard-earned romance. This book will have your heart doing cartwheels.”—Bridget Morrissey, author of Love Scenes
