REVIEW of Tequila Sunrise (Cocktail Cruises #1) My immediate reaction to this story was - Where do I sign up??!! Cocktail Cruises sounded amazing, and I couldn't wait to go along for the ride. This book should have the subheading, "The Single Girls Guide" because it certainly had plenty of sound advice, the Savvy Tips at the beginning of each chapter were brilliant. Right off the bat, I loved that Louise was a real woman, and that she wasn't completely intimidated by the skimpy bikinis that surrounded her on the cruise. And then, of course, I loved that Toby wanted a real woman, and wasn't interested in those bikini clad sticks on legs. I wouldn't say that their chemistry was smoking hot, but there was a bit of spark between them, and I enjoyed seeing that spark ignite into something more from time to time. I will admit, though, that if a guy had to start kissing his way up my arm within a few hours of having met, I might have to escape and run for my life. It felt a bit weird that they seemed to get so cozy so quickly and easily, but that's just me :) As for the Charming Hearts fiasco, I was glad that Lou was willing to stand up for what was right. This book wasn't only a fun escapade, it had a strong message about confidence and knowing ones true worth and value, and to never allow anyone, not even a billion dollar company let you feel like anything less.
The Cocktail Cruise Line offers singles cruises on the Spirit of the Sea. They are filled with romance, passion and lots of drama. This provides the perfect setting for three romantic tales. I love all of these well-crafted and cleverly plotted stories. The characters are charming and compassionate. The dialogue is snappy and humorous. I enjoyed that all the characters and their romances are intertwined. Allie Boniface does an excellent job with this romantic romp. If I had to pick a favorite, I would choose Between The Sheets. It's Andrea DeMarco's story. She's a single mom who wants what's best for her son. She's just not sure that her ex-boyfriend falls in that category. While working on the ship, she wants some me-time and has a romance with the sexy dance instructor, Sebastian. Their attraction is powerful and passionate but will they be together after the cruise ends? This collection has it all. There's love, laughter and a happy ever after. As a bonus there are words of advice from the Savvy Sex Goddess. The author has the perfect touch to make you fall in love with her stories. This was a great read for the dark, cold and grey days of winter.
I read each of these stories as they came out over the summer. I think it's so great how they come as a collection now because what I liked least about them was waiting! But seriously, they did come out very quickly which I loved. Each of the stories pulls you in. You get to know the characters and want them to wind up together. I love how easily the stories flow while reading, no trying to figure out what you missed earlier in the timeline, but at the same time it keeps you turning the page to see what happens. The one thing that comes with the collection and I did not purchase separately is the exclusive, Shots for all Seasons. I love that each shot gives you a glimpse into the story along with a great recipe! I have a feeling I will be sampling a few of those over the holiday season.
