About Cade’s Loss:
Cade Jenkins is a study in loss. At twenty-five he lost his parents, his dreams, and his career on the pro surfing circuit. He gained guardianship of his two younger brothers, responsibility for an entire ranch, and a life without love.
Nina Cline is on the mend. Her cheating fiance is in the rear view, and she’s concentrating on her job as an organic certification consultant. Now that she’s gained her independence, Nina will never make the mistake of giving it away again. Especially to some anonymous hookup she meets at a beachside bar…no matter how good he looks in the water. Then she meets her newest Big Sur client and realizes that the beach bum that curled her toes is her new boss—and he thinks “organic” is a dirty word.
As tensions, tempers, and chemistry reach a boiling point at the ranch, these two heartbroken souls will need to decide if they’re willing to take a chance again, or let the love of a lifetime slip away with the tide.

There was nothing that soothed Cade’s battered soul more than the ocean. He’d been that way as long as he could remember, spending every available moment at the beach, in the water, following his dad from wave to wave until he’d been better on a board than the old man. As he looked at the water now, he could almost see the outline of his dad’s form, riding the long tail of a wave midway out, sun on his hair that was the exact color of Cade’s, water spraying on his tan skin, weathered from the years of being outdoors. The familiar ache that was his companion so much of the last six years caught him like a hoof to the gut, and he swallowed, tasting the lime and tequila in the back of his throat as he blinked the painful image away.
And that was when he saw her. She was leaning on the glass wall that ran along the edge of the deck, her blonde curls blowing in the light breeze that came off the water. She had on a sundress, white cotton, like a little girl’s, but it was backless, tiny straps running over her slim shoulders, and with the sun shining through it, the long skirt was nearly transparent. He could see enough to know that she was wearing thong underwear or none at all, and that her legs were long and lean, curved in all the right places.
Before he could think about it, he’d snatched the other two shots off the bar and was walking toward her, drawn like a moth to a flame, ready to incinerate himself for only a moment of warmth. As he drew closer, he saw another man approaching from across the deck. He gave the guy a hard look, and the dude stepped off, hands up to communicate “no harm no foul.” Cade slid into position to her right and set the shots down on the railing.
“Tequila?” he asked, turning to look at her profile. She had high cheekbones, and her skin was dark for a blonde, a beautiful golden shade that made her look like she’d walked off the pages of a swimsuit magazine. Her nose was straight and small, turning up ever so slightly on the end, but her lips were full, covered in some sort of peach shiny stuff that Cade thought might taste quite good if he could lick it off her.
She turned to look at him when he spoke to her, and the breath was knocked clean out of him. Instead of the standard blue eyes that he’d expect from a blonde, hers were amber, almost glowing under the frame of thick black lashes. She blinked up at him, and Cade’s sore heart gave a jolt that nearly had him gasping.
4TLOR Review ~ by Lou
This book was Brilliant!! I absolutely Loved it… This is the first book I have read by Selena Laurence and it certainly won’t be the last. This book was the perfect mix of sweet, sexy, hot and delicious all rolled up with just the right amount of angst required.
In this book we meet the Jenkins brothers, most notably Cade. Ever since the brothers have been running the ranch on their own, all of the big decisions have been left to Cade, who had to give up a pro-surfing career in order to take care of his family ranch and his younger brothers. The Jenkins brothers own the Big Sur ranch, which Cade’s brother is keen to take Organic. So he calls in Organic consultant Nina Cline.
Cade Jenkins is difficult not to like – a brilliant hero, who has a few issues from his past that he is struggling with. He probably acts like a bit of an idiot throughout the book with some of his thoughts and opinions – there were times where I wanted to shout at him and tell him just ‘get over it’, but the way the story is written, for me, it worked!
Nina Cline is a lovely character. Absolutely loves her job and is hugely passionate about what she does. But there is only so much one person can do to help someone that simply doesn’t want to be helped! And Cade isn’t interested in going Organic – he doesn’t want to welcome the change and upheaval for reasons of his own, and as far as he’s concerned Nina is just here to create a mess.
The chemistry and sparks that fly between these two is off the charts. I loved the humour and the witty banter between both of these characters, and of course between the brothers too. I loved all of them, especially little Katie Bug!
A really wonderful story with plently of action and drama which really will keep the pages turning… I just want more! I can’t WAIT for the next books from the Jenkins’ brothers!
