To review

Was this the end of the series? Oh that would be sad, I know it is called Bellinger sisters, but I want more from this town. More fishermen should find love!

Hannah has a crush on her boss. But she has also been texting with Fox for months and I loved that. They had truly gotten to know each other that way.

And then she comes to town with a film crew. She has hopes of being more than an assistant, she has hope about her crush, but then there is her friend Fox.

Oh Fox, he was a rake. Women women women, but, he also hated it. This felt different, this guy had trauma. He felt like he had been pushed into being a ladies man from birth. And everyone gave him shit for it. He felt he had zero respect and no one ever expected him to actually fall in love. Which does lead to trouble since he falls for Hannah, but thinks he is not good enough.

Emotional trauma. Hope of love, and two friends realising they want more. I enjoyed this one and I would want to see more in this world-

Great narration, she had me with different voices and the feel of things. The only thing missing was a bit of music since Hannah loved Music

King crab fisherman Fox Thornton has a reputation as a sexy, carefree flirt. Everyone knows he's a guaranteed good time--in bed and out--and that's exactly how he prefers it. Until he meets Hannah Bellinger. She's immune to his charm and looks, but she seems to enjoy his... personality? And wants to be friends? Bizarre. But he likes her too much to risk a fling, so platonic pals it is.

Now, Hannah's in town for work, crashing in Fox's spare bedroom. She knows he's a notorious ladies' man, but they're definitely just friends. In fact, she's nursing a hopeless crush on a colleague and Fox is just the person to help with her lackluster love life. Armed with a few tips from Westport's resident Casanova, Hannah sets out to catch her coworker's eye... yet the more time she spends with Fox, the more she wants him instead. As the line between friendship and flirtation begins to blur, Hannah can't deny she loves everything about Fox, but she refuses to be another notch on his bedpost.

Living with his best friend should have been easy. Except now she's walking around in a towel, sleeping right across the hall, and Fox is fantasizing about waking up next to her for the rest of his life and... and... man overboard! He's fallen for her, hook, line, and sinker. Helping her flirt with another guy is pure torture, but maybe if Fox can tackle his inner demons and show Hannah he's all in, she'll choose him instead?
