E-book received from author for review.
"A cruise, a hunk, and a clean romance
equals a great summer read!"
My favorite part of this book was the tropical setting in the first half. I loved the whole cruise ship vibe because I have never been to the Caribbean (or on a cruise). I wish there had been more scenes on the actual islands but I did love the part where they went to the beach (and was very jealous that I wasn't there too!)
Because the setting of the book was so lighthearted, I was surprised that the main characters were actually very emotionally deep. They both had a lot of issues to deal with from past relationships and had to work extremely hard to make their own romance work.
One interesting thing about this book was that it didn't feel as cliche as many romances I have read. The "mean girl" wasn't always mean, the love interest wasn't always perfect, and the main character wasn't always likeable. However, I did have a hard time keeping up with Megan's constantly changing moods. I almost got motion sickness from all the ups-and-downs in her "I love him, I hate him" saga (she may or may not have had multiple personalities!).
Ironically, my favorite character was actually Megan's best friend. I loved that she was so straightforward with Megan and told her to quit thinking so much and just live her life. She was a "no-nonsense" type person who was the perfect balance for Megan's fickleness.
Overall, this book is perfect read for a summer day (especially if you are lying on the beach on a tropical island!)
