Jonathan Bracelyn pours his soul into saving the world, and he's still nowhere near cancelling out the sins of dear ol' dad. But when a medical crisis prompts Jon to toss his sister the ultimate lifeline, he's forced to hang up his captain's hat and hit pause on the one thing that makes him...well, him.

At least he has Blanka Pavlo's heart-flooding smile to buoy his spirits. A brilliant scientist, she knows things can't last with the do-gooder Bracelyn brother. Not even if he kisses like a dream and boasts biceps as hefty as his heart. Blanka's learned the hard way how lonely life is in the shadow of a saint, so she's giving the hottie hero a wide berth.

Except Jonathan sucks at self-care, so maybe she'll lend a hand (and other tingly parts) to help him out. Soon, they're bonding over awkward bubble baths and a disturbingly homely cat, while struggling to remember it's all temporary. But the harder they brace for goodbye, the louder their hearts declare they're already in too deep.

I always have a blast reading Tawna Fenske's books, and Captain Dreamboat jumped right onto the leader board of great reads from a favorite author. Jonathan and Blanka have an instant attraction to each other, on top of their instant bond they find while helping Jonathan's sister during illness. Both characters are insanely busy as Jonathan steps into the hero mode he so often fills to save his sister's life. Captain Dreamboat has some of the funniest scenes I have read...I literally had to put the book down while I laughed like a loon during one particular scene. But you can't let the humor of Fenske's book fool you... this is a serious love story, and Jonathan and Blanka bring the heat. These characters are both so compassionate and giving that they are a perfect match. The reader can't help but root for them through every step of their journey.

I find myself writing similar reviews for all of Tawna Fenske’s books. Every one of her books is a pleasure to read, and it seems I’m always using the same superlatives to describe them and always loving every single word. “Captain Dreamboat” is no exception. The book is at turns sweet, silly and sexy. The characters, after several books in the series, now feel like family. It was a joy to finally get to know Jonathan better, too. He’s been often mentioned, and he got the happy ending he deserved with Blanka. I always love to visit Ponderosa Resort and find out what the Bracelyn family and their friends are up to. I’d recommend the entire series, but this can be read as a stand-alone as well. Tawna Fenske’s trademark wit and wackiness are a joy. Don’t miss out!

I enjoyed this romance, but have a few minor issues with the kidney donation information. But knowing most people would not be familiar with that, I'm giving this a 4 star rating. You will love spending time with Jon and Blanka. I found the canoe/kayak adventure to be fun, light and yet heartwarming and heartbreaking. I laughed at the self-care experiments and I hope you will too. Overall a fun, light and easy book.

This is book 6 in the Ponderosa Resort Series and I have loved everyone of them but this one touched my heart in a different way. Jonathan Bracelyn is the most giving man. He is totally devoted to making the world a better place. When he finds himself home for his sisters wedding he goes above and beyond on the giving scale. He also finds himself attracted and totally enamoured with Blanka. She is a beautiful, independent woman and one he can't seem to get out of his head. Blanka is determined to remain single and to do what makes her happy. She has watched her mother follow her famous father around her entire life and watch her mother fade into the background and basically loose herself. She is determined that will not happen to her so when she finds herself attracted to Jonathan she will only allow her heart to get involved to a certain point. That is until he works his way in completely then she is a lost cause for being bitten by the love bug. This story is full of selfless devotion to everyone but themselves. It was heartbreaking at times to feel the deep hurt these characters felt from their childhoods to adulthood. I loved them both and wanted them to find their HEA. I won't give away anything but know it is a great story and so well written and while all the Bracelyn children have their own demons to deal with because of Cort Bracelyn lack of fatherhood abilities I think Jon has suffered the most and thanks to Blanka he finally finds his happy center to focus on self care for a change. I received an early copy to read and review and give my honest opinion. I loved this book and Highly Recommend It!!!

Another fabulous addition to the Ponderosa Ranch series. I loved the relationship between Jonathan and Blanka. They never tried to fight or deny their attraction to each other yet they held off because of what they both thought they wanted out of their lives. Blanka helping Jonathan recover from surgery was great, the self-care bath was down right hilarious and yet so perfect for these two. I really liked Blanka and how she always knew what she wanted even if she didn’t know how to put it into words. I really enjoyed seeing more of Isabelle (Izzy) and watch her open up and become her own person. When she spoke with Jonathan and made him realize what he was missing, that was great to see her becoming herself and not the person who apologized for everything. I can’t wait for Izzy’s story. If you have enjoyed the other Bracelyn sibling’s stories then Jonathan’s will not disappoint.
