From, Lauren Rowe, the USA Today and International
bestselling author of The Club Series and Ball Peen Hammer comes a sexy
standalone romance: Captain.
It wasn’t the way this kind of story was supposed to go . . .

Insta-love isn’t supposed to turn into insta-hate.

But that’s exactly what happened when the hot-as-hell dreamboat I met in a bar
turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag-player-douche looking for nothing
but a little side action. Jerk.

And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a “sociopath”? Assh*le.

And now, three months later, through a mind-blowing series of events I couldn’t
have predicted in a million years, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister
in Hawaii and I’ve got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week.

Okay, sure, I’ll put on a happy face this week and act like I’ve never even met
the jerk before–did I mention his sister is marrying my boss?–but that
doesn’t mean I’ll like it. And it certainly doesn’t mean I’ll stop secretly
hating the cocky bastard’s guts.

Because I do.

I hate him.

I really do.

I just wish my brain would explain the situation to my body . . . because every
time he flashes that panty-melting smile at me, it takes all my self-restraint
not to jump the bastard’s hot-as-f*ck bones.

OUR REVIEW

This was not what I expected, but so much better! I loved it! It was funny and sweet, and had the perfect ending. Yes, Ryan was a man whore, but he was so loveable and when he realized he had feelings for Tessa he immediately stopped whoring it up. He was a one woman man and I loved it. You could see how from the beginning they had this easiness around one another. I felt a wide variety of emotions while reading this book and I love when a book/author can do that to me.

Ryan instantly won me over. He was very kind to Tessa and so funny…Tessa on the other hand…I loved her character right from the start. She was smart, strong, independent and loyal… They were both such amazing characters. The insta-love fully worked for me, it didn’t bother me because the author created an actual bond between the main couple. These two went from fighting..to flirting…to being in love in no time at all.. They were just so freaking cute together!

And my god this book was sexy!!! There were scenes where I was just fanning myself and drooling lol. The lust was magnetic, the attraction was heart-stopping and the love was uncontrollable. If you want to read something refreshing, sweet, and really funny, if you crave the heart pounding and if you read to escape then I highly recommend this book!

In short:
Hero 5/5 | Heroine 5/5 | Plot (Point, Originality) 5/5 | Writing Style 4/5 | Steam 5/5 | Romance 5/5 | Angst-Suspense 4/5 | Darkness 0/5 | Humor 4/5 | Secondary Characters 4/5 | Drama-Conflict 4/5 | Mystery 0/5 | Twists 4/5 | Pacing Steady | Action 3/5
