Callie Henderson had to fight to put her tragic past behind her, but now the up-and-coming player in the hospitality industry is well on her way to happiness. She has her sights set on the lead renovation position at the Sunset Harbor Inn-an inn that just happens to be owned by Sam Edwards, the man who comforted her in her grief and gave her one night of passion before walking away.
Sam is searching for someone who can turn his quaint inn into a premier boutique hotel. He just never expected that someone to be the one woman who knows his deepest secrets. But he needs Callie, and Callie needs the job. Throw in a talking parrot with a cracker addiction, some uncooperative islanders, and enough sexual sparks to light a beachside bonfire, and they've got their work cut out for them....
More to Give is a story of heartbreak and healing, of facing the past...and having the courage to believe in a future.

"Refreshing, amazing, funny. Just loved this one too."
I love Anchor Island's books. They are so different from other romances. I eat books so I sometimes feel they all seem the same.
This is a funny, sweet and refreshing story about Callie and Sam, two people that have met years ago and in a very sad situation had been pulled together in a one night stand. Both betrayed and insecure.
Years later she comes to the island to lead a renovation project in one of Sam's hotels and all kinds of funny and sudden things happen.
Join this brilliant narrator in this hot, sweet story. You'll not regret.
I love all these books but the second w/ Cid and Luca's story and this are my preferred ones.
"Sad to see it end.."
I am sorry to learn there is not a book 5 to this wonderful series. I will miss the people and the wonderful island.
How unfortunate that Ms Rubinate was compelled to gush throughout this one... I have enjoyed reading all four Anchor Island books and also listening to the first three audiobooks. Sadly, the narration on this one is disappointing. Most of the dialogue of the leading characters is sing-songy and gushy. Bleh.
"A funny, cute story that's a delight to listen to!"
The fourth installment in the Anchor Island series is definitely one of the best! Teri Osburn weaves humor in with the romance as she unravels the tale of Sam Edwards, who has inherited two hotel properties on Anchor Island under the condition that he continues to reside there for at least three years; and Callie Henderson, who has been hired to oversee the reformation of one of Sam's properties. There's a history between these two as their respective ex-spouses were running off together when they were both killed in a car accident. Sam and Callie spent one intimate night together shortly afterwards and haven't seen each other since. Callie's job gets more demanding when Sam signs on to host a wedding party at the inn and pushes the timeline that Callie has to transform the 100+ year old inn to less than 4 months. Taking the characters on Anchor Island, Callie's mother and best friend, and throw in a talking circus parrot make for such a heart-warming funny story that you won't be bored for a minute during the entire book! I read this book after finishing one of those stories filled with angst and tension, so this was a much-needed delightful diversion. You will love it too!
"Parrot Better Than Plot"
It's sad when the most interesting character in a contemporary romance was the pet parrot. Sam and Callie had potential but seemed awfully 1 dimensional to me.
Supposedly Sam had a bug up his butt because he was being forced to live on a small island in order to inherit 2 oceanfront hotels - what an ungrateful, immature jerk! Sorry, but if someone left me businesses worth millions I wouldn't be bitching & moaning.
Also, Sam was portrayed as a smart businessman, yet he agreed to rushing the renovation of a historical inn for 1 lousy wedding reception in December. Only an idiot would pay overtime and use unskilled workers to open a seashore property in winter, then have the inn sit basically empty for 3-4 months.
Since the premise was ludicrous, I was more annoyed than entertained by More to Give.
