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.
Crystal’s BookWorld 5 Star Review:
Captain by Lauren Rowe was HOT! I know that the book world readers out there have enjoyed Lauren’s books and will love Captain too. Captain was thrilling, amazingly sexy, capturing, and just so much more! I was sad when I was done reading this book. Lauren’s writing style was easy to follow and mesmerizing. She truly knows how to get her readers engaged with the characters in the story. This is a dual POV and gives you enough drama and lovey dovey mixed in Captain. I mean who does not want to have a love romance in Maui? *Raises hand* ME!
Tessa has always felt that her instincts were always off. She wears her heart on her sleeve, but can be a sassy and flirty Virgo. I loved the curvy brunette. She had some trouble getting over her past mistake. Her best friend Chelsea thinks its best to let loose and find a one night stand at a local bar. Never in her dreams did she imagine to find Ryan there. Their intense chemistry keeps her nearby him. Their relationship gets rocky and complicated. There is so much at stake for Tessa’s heart she is afraid to get burned. When she has to go to Maui and runs into Ryan, its all or nothing from there on out. Too many demons and secrets come out that has her running away. Can Ryan convince her to go back?
Ryan does short term relationships. Yes he has a lot of baggage from the past. He also has a list of female companions he has spent some time with in between the sheets. He has been appointed as a player, but after reading this book, I only see him as lost. He was on a journey to find his other half. He has dreams and when he meets Tessa, he can see them in her eyes. He is connected to her like no one else. She is his person. But that connection cracks when his present life comes crashing in their faces the first night they met. But in Maui, the gloves come off and Ryan is fighting dirty to keep Tessa. And when they finally have their sexy time, the electricity goes up 100 time over. It was intense! These two were PERFECT! I am over the MOON for Ryan.
Captain gives you hope in finding your soul mate. I definitely had a few moments of laughs when the Morgan brothers get together. They are a tight family, the Morgan Mafia (inside joke from the book). I love all of the nicknames and the banter. This book is IT folks!
