    Wonderful book from start to finish!

    As one of my go-to authors, Michelle Mankin continues to deliver books that warm my heart and make me smile. She has the ability to take a second chance love story and give it the freshness that I seek. Successfully combining the exhilarating world of surfing with the sexiness of Rock and Roll: Outside is every reader's dream come true! Simone Bianchi thought she had found forever love with Lincoln Savage. But that was 15 years ago and since then, her life has been quiet with her constant companion Chulo and her surf shop in her beloved Ocean Beach to fill her days. And now Linc is back and he wants nothing more than to claim his 'Mona' once again. Under a ruse to have her sign papers to work together on a song they co-wrote all those years ago, Linc will stop at nothing to convince Mona that they have another chance. Oh my. This book is just so beautiful. The way the author describes the sights and sounds of Ocean Beach, you can almost smell the breeze coming off the water. We get both the past and present lives of our couple and watch as the love they thought was meant to be as young lovers, get decimated by some rash decisions and foolish words. I love the way Lincoln is so sure of himself. His passion, his want, his need for his woman was off the charts moving. Getting the more mature and self-assured Lincoln is just what Mona needs. It's all we can do to hope that she sees how he truly is her HEA and the missing piece to the broken puzzle she has remained all these years later. With wonderful secondary characters in Karen and Ash and even a lovestruck Patrick, this book has it all. The author even touches upon the sometimes tragic consequences of a rock and roll life which gives this story the realism she is known for. This is a love story that is truly touching. I devoured every page and then went back and read it again. I'm hopeful that some loose ends that intrigued me in this story will be explored further in future books in the series. This is a great crew that you will fall hard for, just as I did. A huge 5++ stars.

    Sexy Surf Romance

    Outside is like no other book I have read in that it is about young love and second chances and the story spans 15 yrs! Wow! I was caught up immediately in the beginning of Linc and Simone and how they had not seen or talked in 15 years and yet how even after all this time Simone is still mad and hurt. What happened? The story starts in the present but then goes back to the past where it all began and this is where you will fall in love with the young Linc and Simone and the relationship that grows between the two. The writing is flawless and smooth and the character development is off the charts! Linc and Simone are both so young and have so much to deal with that forces them beyond their love for one another. Both characters struggle with insecurities that can easily make or break any couple. This book was not at all what I expected, it goes beyond a romance and will take you by surprise! I learned a lot about surfing and as I read this book I could feel the sand in my toes and imagine what it was like to crush those waves! A great Beach summer book and 5 big stars!
