When Lyn sets off on her supposedly uncomplicated and unromantic cruise, she never dreams it will include pirates. All the 25-year-old Colorado high school teacher wants is to forget that her dead fiancé was a cheating scumbag. What she plans is a vacation diversion; what fate provides is Braedon, an intriguing surgeon. She finds herself drawn to him: his gentle humor, his love of music, and even his willingness to let her take him down during morning karate practices. Against the backdrop of the ship's make-believe world and its temporary friendships, her emotions come alive.

However, fear is an emotion, too. Unaware of the sensitive waters he navigates, Braedon moves to take their relationship beyond friendship--on the very anniversary Lyn came on the cruise to forget. But Lyn's painful memories are too powerful, and she runs off in a panic.

Things are bad enough when the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise's snorkeling excursions in American Samoa. However, paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped. Lyn's fear of a fairytale turns grim. Now she must fight alongside the man she rejected, first for their freedom and then against storms, sharks, and shipwreck.

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!!!!! I want to read this book over and over again. Seriously one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I adore Lyn and Braedon. More please!  Perhaps more about Jori. I could definitely read more about that Scandanavian God. Yes please!

A wonderful tale that's completely lovable! This book is fantastic!! I was so worried when I began reading because first of all, I am not a fan of New Adult. Mostly because of the content it is known for. But Donna spins a wonderful tale that's completely lovable!!!! The characters are amazing. Oh my goodness, the characters! I could say SO much but I truly don't want to spoil this book for you. It is too good to do that! The writing is amazing, every scene is so beautifully written. I felt like I was on a cruise, I felt that sand between my toes. The sun beating down on me.  I was there with those characters! And oh my goodness, the ending! Again, there is so much that I could say but there is no way of talking about it without giving away spoilers so seriously, I am telling you now; Go read this book!!!!!

After hearing great things about this book, I decided I could give up sleep for a good romance read. I was not disappointed. Lyn and Braedon are the main character in this story and might I say both are enjoyable. No whiney girl or overly macho man to distract from the story. It was sweet and fun with it's Johnny Depp references and tender sweet romantic scenes. And exciting...being trapped on a deserted island!? Love it. I always dreamed of being stranded on a deserted island as a girl...now of course I'm thankful that never happen, LOL! This is a great read! P.S. LOVE THIS COVER!!!

Enjoyable This was a wonderfully written story about finding love in a different way and achieving family members but just caring.

This book surprised me. I admit that at first, I was put off by the multitude of excuses the main character used to avoid meeting the man of her dreams, and I will say that while I love this author and her books, I did find too many errors in the copy to overlook. It distracted me from the story. Yeah, I get that our girl was burned the first time, bad, but I felt it was extreme. Then the story takes a sudden incredible right turn, and the characters are put through heck in a dramatic disaster of epic proportions. Donna, you had me crying. Get the kleenex box out, ladies. You'll love it, especially the totally yummy guy.

A Change of Plans is fantastic story with adventure, romance, suspense, and just a hint of personal pride and prejudice keeping our main man and lady apart. The story begins with Lyn finally doing something to help get herself out of her self-imposed rut, and Braedon is the sort of handsome gent that after their first encounter she can't quite forget. No matter how many walls she tries to put up. Throw in a rather long cruise, some expeditions that force them closer, plus a dash of that stubborn pride I mentioned before, and when everything goes horribly wrong.... well you won't be able to put this book down. There are so many twists and turns to this story its impossible to see them all coming in advance! You will gasp, laugh, and cry as you read this book, so be sure to have your tissues ready!
