THEY REALLY KNOW HOW TO ROCK THE BOAT…
“Sizzling shipboard romance–Jody throws caution to the wind as she lets go of her inhibitions and indulges in one magnificent week of pleasure. Passions surge, lovers tangle and two lives will never be the same again.”
Before Jody Carter and her three best friends ever set foot aboard the luxury cruise ship, Jody falls into the arms of uber hunky celebrity guest Taggart Keith, when he saves her shoe from falling to the depths of the sea. Their attraction is undeniable, but the recently divorced single mom knows the last thing she needs is to complicate her life in just seven short days. But that’s exactly what happens when Jody throws caution to the wind for once in her life and gives into a week of sensational pleasures. Taggart helps her discover her more sensual side–one tantalizing night at a time.
My Review:SAIL AWAY WITH ME by Kate Deveaux
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Jody is on a cruise with three of her girlfriends in an attempt to have some fun 6 months after her divorce is finalized. She has a 12 year old son, and has no thoughts of being in another relationship. At the beginning of the cruise she has a run-in with celebrity author Taggart Keith, who will be doing some lectures on the cruise about his latest best-selling self-help book. Taggart is very attractive, very smooth, and quickly pursues Jody who finds she can't resist him, nor does she want to. They spend a very sexy week together on the cruise, and Jody experiences the best sex of her life and feelings are awakened that she did't think she would ever feel again. Jody knows that real life will set in as soon as the cruise ends, and she and Taggart will go on with their very different lives and responsibilities. As the week goes on, both of them realize that saying goodbye at the end of the cruise will be very difficult.
This book reminded me of an old-school romance novel. While the content is contemporary, there is definitely a classic feel to it. There is also a fairly predictable story line. That said, the chemistry and passion between Jody and Taggart is very hot and sexy. Their passion for one another is palpable, and throughout everything it is easy for the reader to be cheering both of them on and hoping that things work out for them. Jody's group of friends is interesting and it is nice too see them supporting one another. If you are looking for a good steamy romance story without a lot of surprises, then this will be an enjoyable read for you.
