My god! This was my first book by Lauren Rowe, and I had no idea what I was missing. Captain is just everything. Humor. Romance. Grand Gestures. Swoon-worthy hero. Fantastic heroine. Lovable secondary characters. It is just fantastic.
The Morgan family is one of the main reasons I lovd this book so much. The camaraderie, the support, the endless and unconditional love and support for one another makes them everything I would ever want in a family. I wanted to be a part of the fun of the Morgans as much as Tessa, and I will honestly read any single book Lauren Rowe publishes about the Morgan family.
Ryan is the epitome a romance hero. With the perfect lines, tattoos, and good looks, I literally swooned over this man. He, however was more than just the typical hero. What made him the best kind of man is his complete honesty about how he feels, his devotion and dedication to winning over Tessa, and his grand gestures are some of the absolute best. Plus, he loves a woman they way she wants to be loved, flaws and all, and his desire to settle down and be a daddy and husband affected this reader in some kind of way. His desire for a real life with the ups and downs with the woman he loves and kids he adores is just too much! I freaking adore him!
Tessa is another great character. Tight-laced and a ball buster, she keeps all the main characters, especially the men, in line. She is smart and sassy, and I love that she is a thinker. She isn’t overly emotional, protects her heart, but is so generous and caring. It is refreshing to see the roles between the hero and heroine reversed in terms of openness and vulnerability.
The chemistry between these two sparks right away and is pure magic from the get go. Their journey to coupledom, of course, gets waylaid a bit at the beginning, but part of the fun of this romance is how these two get back to each other. The antics, the fun, the hot (and I do mean HOT) sex just makes the journey that much better. Plus the grand gesture at the end is totally epic, and the epilogue left me grinning from ear to ear.
Love, love, love Captain by Lauren Rowe. If you are looking for a romance that will have you laughing and swooning, as well as adoring each and every single character. This is the book for you! I swear Rum Cakes, a.k.a Captain, a.k.a Ryan will not disappoint!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
From, Lauren Rowe, the USA Today and International bestselling author of The Club Series and Ball Peen Hammer comes a sexy standalone romance: Captain.
It wasn’t the way this kind of story was supposed to go . . .
Insta-love isn’t supposed to turn into insta-hate.
But that’s exactly what happened when the hot-as-hell dreamboat I met in a bar turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag-player-douche looking for nothing but a little side action. Jerk.
And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a “sociopath”? Assh*le.
And now, three months later, through a mind-blowing series of events I couldn’t have predicted in a million years, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister in Hawaii and I’ve got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week.
Okay, sure, I’ll put on a happy face this week and act like I’ve never even met the jerk before–did I mention his sister is marrying my boss?–but that doesn’t mean I’ll like it. And it certainly doesn’t mean I’ll stop secretly hating the cocky bastard’s guts.
Because I do.
I hate him.
I really do.
I just wish my brain would explain the situation to my body . . . because every time he flashes that panty-melting smile at me, it takes all my self-restraint not to jump the bastard’s hot-as-f*ck bones.
