Recently dumped by her long-time boyfriend because she wasn’t thin enough, Louise Jamison wants to let loose and find love (or at least great sex) on board a romantic singles’ cruise. When she meets the man of her dreams at a speed dating event, Lou believes she’s struck gold.
Toby DeMarco is too busy building his new construction business to get involved in a serious relationship. He only goes on the four-day cruise because his best friend’s family owns the line and his sister works on it, so he got a great deal. He plans to relax, rejuvenate and maybe find a woman to pass the time with. But when he meets the luscious Louise, his heart's a goner and all bets are off.
A few days of romance are jeopardized when Louise learns that the cruise line’s matchmaking service assigns partners based on looks and weight. Mortified by this unethical business practice, she takes to social media and makes national headlines. But the publicity is hurting Toby’s family and friends – and family means everything to Toby.
Will Toby be able to convince Lou that true love exists beyond numbers, before it’s too late?

First of all, I love any story where the heroine isn’t a teensy, tiny, perfect size 2. So the slightly larger-sized Lou had me at her dress size. ¿ This series has a great and sexy premise—everything (or most everything) takes place on a singles cruise. What happens on the cruise, stays on the cruise LOL. Tequila Sunrise is book 1 in this new series. It’s a fast, sexy read with great, endearing characters. I like the fact that neither character is perfect, neither is really looking for love in the beginning, but know they’ve found something special when they meet each other.
A fun, sexy read. I love that the books are named after cocktails, such a fun idea. Tequila Sunrise is a fast-paced read that will whisk you away for a night of sexy fun.
