Graduating from college is supposed to be a promise for excitement and limitless possibilities. But for unemployed Rebecca Stanton, the highlight of her day is sitting in her parents' home with a pint of Chunky Monkey while watching The Bachelor. Desperate for change and inspired by a late night commercial, she stumbles onto a job opportunity with a new cruise line, packs her bags, and sets sail toward her new destiny.

Life is full of an endless supply of exciting possibilities for Marco Puglia. The tall, dark, handsome, Italian Cruise Director with Sunset Cruise Lines is practically a celebrity in the cruising industry. When Marco adds Rebecca to his staff, he soon discovers it is both the best and worst decision he's ever made. The beautiful siren has captured his attention and ensnared his heart. An intense attraction like theirs doesn't follow the rules, even one that forbids a boss/employee relationship.

Will their blatant mutiny force their newly found love aground, or will Rebecca and Marco find love on their horizon?

Love on The Horizon is a feel good contemporary romance comedy meant for readers who are 18+ due to mature content.

Another feel-good romantic love story from A.M. Madden! Finding love is hard. But keeping that love is even harder. Throw in an unexpected forbidden passion between a boss and employee, along with two families that don't approve, and the stakes just went way up! Landing new jobs on the cruise liner, The Horizon, Marco and Rebecca are completely caught off guard when an instant attraction forms at first sight. But what transpires between them is anything but immediate. Do they risk not only their hearts, but also their careers, for something unknown? Or do they continue to deny the magnetic desires they share for one another? Truth and consequences clash, and relationships are tested. How can loving someone be so wrong?...when it feels so right. A rich and deep story, with complex characters, LOVE on The Horizon is an engaging and charming MUST-READ!

What a breath of fresh air, I loved this book so much it was sweet and hilarious and romantic and very swoon worthy, There was no angst or turmoil there was a small problem but isn't that life.This is the story of Rebecca a 22 yr old just out of college with a dead in job (Hooters) feeling lost and overwhelmed and consumed with student loans who decide to make a spur of the moment decision to get a job on a cruise ship.Marco ,who is Italian,is the cruise ship director and Rebecca boss, sparks fly and love ensues and then they get found out and ratted on to pr. and then I let you read the rest. I giggled like a little girl while reading all about them meeting each others families, and Ricky ,Marco's assistant and Rebecca's friend was the absolute best character , I want him to be my best friend . This story really hit home with me on the bases of my husband meeting and falling in love within a couple months and then we got married within a year. and everyone doubted us . I just loved this book it was carefree and not much drama , and Marco and Rebecca are adventurous with their getting in on, and trying not to get caught.

Such a sweet, funny love story! Love on the Horizon differs from many of A.M. Madden's other books and I loved the change of pace. Rebecca was never considered the serious, focused child in the family so it wasn't such a surprise when she lost her job and decided to just pick up and leave. She moved to Florida, looking for he future on a cruise ship. And find it, she did - on the brand new ship, Horizon. Marco had finally gotten the "star" of the cruise ship industry - he is the cruise director of the newest ship in the Sunset Cruise Lines fleet. And he is going to make the most of it and prove himself; nothing is going to get in his way. Or so he thought until Rebecca walked into his life. Something about her made him hire her on the spot, even though she didn't have the experience. Something about her kept him thinking about her, taking risks around her, and wanting more. Even as Rebecca and Marco find themselves drawn to each other, they fight the feelings, knowing that any type of relationship would not be allowed, since Marco is Rebecca's boss. In walks Ricky, Marco's right hand man, and designated matchmaker. He sees the attraction between the two and continues to push them together, helping them see that there was more to life than just work. I loved the characters and the story. I was routing for Rebecca and Marco as they learned about each other and had to meet each other's families and the craziness that ensued. Now, I want Ricky's story - he deserves love!!!

You have to read this one! I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Rebecca Stanton was adrift in her life and her career after graduating college and she had no boyfriend. After being fired from Hooters, the answer came to her like a bolt of lightning one night. Leaving her family behind in New Jersey, she headed to Florida to interview for a position with a cruise line. She never expected to find the answers to all of her questions. Marco Puglia is an Italian god. He never thought he would fall for his new employee but he can seem to stay away from her. As with all of AM Madden's books, I loved this one. It made me laugh out loud and it made me cry, too. I connected with Rebecca instantly and swooned over Marco (who wouldn't?). Ricky was the icing on the cake. The book is mostly light-hearted though there are a few times when it did get serious but it will definitely be a book I will recommend to friends.

Love on the Horizon: A Breaking the Rules Novel by A.M.Madden hits you right in the heart. It is such a great love story. It left me with warm, fuzzy feelings. It was sweet. I was reminded of why I love romance stories. I found the characters to be fun, exciting and truly fun to read. Marco and Rebecca made me smile and laugh. They are awesome. I adore their families and their reaction to the news. I also love Ricky. Thank you for this amazing story.

A.M. Madden, is there anything you cannot write about? I mean I read your series about a rock band, and was totally blown away. I read your book about a hot cop, I read your book about a baseball player and now this little gem about a hot Italian cruise director named Marco. Each book is different, yet you have a way of making the reader feel as though they know these people personally. I felt like I was right there on that cruise ship with Rebecca and Marco, trying to escape from their immediate attraction. I would have loved to have been there during a certain scene involving Dina, Rebecca and Ricky, lol. I fell in love with Marco and Rebecca, and rooted for them from the beginning. Rebecca is sassy, independent, and just trying to find out what she wants to do with her life. Marco, has found the life he wants, or he thinks he has. Get ready to be drawn in by Marco, the instant attraction between him and Rebecca has made him feel like the best thing and the worse thing he has ever done was to hire her. Poor Marco, one minute he is talking in English and the next he is cursing in Italian, and the poor fellow doesn't even realize he is doing it. I absolutely loved and hated his family and hers, I understand where they were coming from, but I also felt so sorry for Marco and Rebecca. But it also made for some hilarious scenes. His assistant Ricky, was a surprisingly refreshing addition to this book. Ricky is quite a character and most of the time he knows Marco, better than Marco knows himself. If you love romantic comedy with a great story line and fantastic characters, including one sexy Italian, then this book is a must read for you. Warning: If you read this book in public, you will definitely laugh out loud, and that will probably resort in you getting funny looks. I was privileged enough to receive an ARC of this book, but that had no bearing on my review. This book truly deserves five stars!!

I absolutely loved this book. I'm on board to read everything A.M. Madden writes. This book is a beautiful feel good story. Marco is a very sexy Italian and Rebecca has a very adventurous spirit. I loved the chemistry between them and the banter with their coworker Ricky. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

☆I'm Swooning I'm Laughing I'm in LOVE!☆ Love Love Love this Book!! Love on the Horizon is amazing. This refreshing romantic story has it all. The instant attraction between Rebecca and Marco, the hysterical best friend Ricky that everyone will want to have on their side, the Villain we all want to smack and of couse the quirky FAMILY that we all have and love!! I always like a story that has a slight "maybe we shouldn't date" storyline, it adds to the suspense and drama. It has me rooting for love while obstacles get in the way and in Love on the Horizon some of those obstacles will have you clinching your fists while others will have you laughing so hard you'll be tears. ♡ Ahhh but the passion between Marco and Rebecca will have you swooning and sighing at their story!! Sexy & Hot!!! Love on the Horizon gripped me right from the start up to the very last page, and eventhough the story left me thirsty for more from all of these amazing characters, it gave me all my answers. The story was never rushed and flowed so beautifully, plus it made me fall for another of AM Madden’s Leading Men! **A DEFINITE MUST READ**

From the very first page I was laughing out loud. A.M. Madden's writing style keeps the readers attention the entire time. The story was absolutely fantastic and very easy to relate to. I can not wait to read more from these characters!!! College Graduate, Rebecca Stanton, hasn't exactly found her dream job. She still lives at home and is ready to venture out. She comes across a job opportunity with a new cruise line, and she is out the door ready for her next adventure. Marco Puglia is the tall, dark, handsome, Cruise Director with Sunset Cruise Line that Rebecca didn't see coming. When Marco and Rebecca meet sparks fly. There are many job related obstacles in their way of romance. Can they find a way around it?? Find out in this amazing book of finding yourself, exploring new destinations, and maybe falling in love along the way. I'm telling you, you don't want to miss this hot, laugh out loud book. Marco is a swoon worthy character that will set your panties on fire!!! I highly recommend Love on the Horizon by A.M. Madden. Five out to sea stars!!!
