It’s so twisted and passionate and sexy as hell! Two straight up honest people who simply get mind-fccked by fate.
Oh, and did I say it’s SEXY as HELL!!!
Yet again, I have fallen in love with Lauren Rowe’s beautiful Morgan family!
Since 2015 when Lauren Rowe first stormed onto the literary scene, I have looked forward to that time of the year when we hear Lauren say 'I am writing'. Because these 3 words mark the countdown to the release of a book that I know will undoubtedly become a favourite for the year as well as becoming a treasured part of my library collection.
Captain is Lauren's brand new STANDALONE novel and I first have to mention the cover...OMG! Favourite cover right there!
Those tattoos give a kickstart to the enquiring mind & allows us a sneak peek into the delicious character that is 'Captain' Ryan Ulysses Morgan.
This latest creation introduces us to 2 emotionally charged characters in Ryan Morgan & Tessa Rodriguez.
Lauren is a master at delivering characters that exude genuine feeling & emotion & the connection that burns between Ryan & Tessa is palpable & all consuming. Tessa & Ryan seduce us with the raw intensity of their passion & to say that their love is hot & explosive is an understatement.
Ryan's alpha tendencies will melt you & leave you thirsty to experience him in a very personal way. And Tessa...oh Tessa...you beautifully flawed, quietly dirty woman, you are a model for women everywhere to look up to & you are one of my fav heroines.
It would not be a Lauren Rowe book if it did not include Lauren's unique signature style & humour & boy did it deliver with this. I literally had a smile on my face for the majority of this book & her secondary characters ( who you will know & love if you have read any of Lauren's previous books....however, you do not need to have read any previously and I will guarantee you it will be a most entertaining surprise for you if you haven't) are some of the most endearing, lovable & downright funnist people EVER! I belly laughed so many times throughout this story.
Lauren puts as much thought into her supporting cast as she does in her main characters & the depth & sincerity that she delivers, is her major strength as an author.
I do love a good musical playlist that enhances my experience while reading & Captain has (although small) one of the most thought provoking & captivating playlists around. Lauren knows her way around music & this shows in her selection of songs....they are not random choices. The music, alongside her words, makes this story come alive.
Inside the pages of this book you will encounter the most entertaining group of characters you will ever have the pleasure of meeting and I promise you that from the first turned page, they will change the outlook on your day.
I loved this book & I guarantee that you will too.
5 HUGE stars
The two main characters, Ryan and Tessa, met in a bar when Tessa was out for a good time with her bestie, Charlotte. It takes a lot of searching on Ryan's part to finally catch up with Tessa again, but fate ultimately kicked in for him. For two smart people, I did find it annoying it took so long for them to connect the dots and this made for parts of the book to be a little repetitive. The connection between the two was extremely high, and I found at times I had to fan myself it was so hot. Although some of the name calling in the heat of the moment was a turn off.
This is my first book by Lauren Rowe, and certainly won't be my last. I have Keane's story on my kindle ready to go and I am looking forward to it. Even though this book is classified as a standalone, I did feel I was missing out on something..... like I missed a party somewhere along the way and didn't feel I was apart of the team. No biggie though, it only makes me want to go and read all her books.
*I received an arc for an honest review.
**Reviewed for JoandIsaLoveBooksBlog.
There are so many things that I loved about CAPTAIN: the witty banter between the characters; the quirky jokes that had me LOLing; the schmexy dirty talk and sexy times; and of course the brah-hood and family bond between the members of the Morgan family! Seriously, I finished this book and wanted to be part of this crazy, fun and loving family!! Ms. Rowe's narrative is highly addictive and unique - it's something that I can imagine being turned into a movie one day! In a nutshell, CAPTAIN delivered on the laughs, gave me goosebumps inducing FEELS, and had my heart aflutter!!!!!!

So, without further ado - Who are the stars of the show??
Oh, ladies let me tell you about Captain Ryan Morgan. The front cover paints the perfect pic & truly this man is what my Ultimate Book Boyfriend looks like. He's the whole shabang & gawd could I spend an eternity exploring this perfectly sculpted body. Inch by inch. But hold your horses, because that's not all... He is so much more than top draw eye candy, this man is loving, passionate, caring & so damn loyal it's ridiculous - I really could spend the same eternal time exploring his tender heart & beautiful soul too.
He is the Captain of the Morgan clan & oh how I love his role in this crazy beautiful family. Raised by the BEST momma & surrounded by such life affirming love his whole life, he is a man not scared to show his feelings for those that mean the most. He isn't afraid to show vulnerability or bare his soul which I adored. There is nothing sexier than a pure alpha being confident in the man on the inside as well as the outside.
Now you need to meet T-Rod aka Tessa. This girl could be my spirit sister, because our stars align perfectly & oh how I love her quirky traits. She is feisty, sexy & super smart, loyal to a fault & a good bit stubborn. She's had her heart broken & isn't in rush to repeat that, so up comes the walls & defense mechanisms come into force & boy does this girl know how to dig her heals in.
However, once you peel back the layers, there is wanton lil creature waiting to explode & hell did I love her hard. I loved her passion, her sexuality & how she went against her inner conscious to throw caution to wind & live in the moment. I loved her hard, flaws & all. Her inner battle against her insecurities & her inner crazy was super endearing & made her so much more real & oh so perfect.
How were the feels & storyline?
Captain is like like sunshine on a rainy day.- it made my heart soar & my soul smile. I loved how their passionate journey of instalove / instahate played out. From the moment, they drew the battle lines & threw themselves into winning sed war, they owned me. The banter was hilarious, with some truly classic one liners & don't get me started on the sexual tension - because seriously, I'm talking combustible panties, exploding ovaries & cold showers ..
I loved the way their relationship developed. As the whole story unfolded it was like unwrapping two special bundles at Christmas. Because even though they hated with such raw passion & desire, it was only when their hearts opened & souls were bared, could I see the real beauty in how they gave love but received it too. Sigghhh talk about gooey & beautiful.
How was the writing?
In true Lauren style she whisked me away to place I never wanted to leave. She has the ability to make me FEEL like I'm right there in among it all, loving & laughing with every single character, for it's not just the main Stars that lead this book, it’s the role of all the side characters too, that are written so damned well, that you can't picture the book without them. They add depth, beauty & some very special tender moments that tugged on my heart big style.
The Morgan Family is my ULTIMATE FANTASY FAMILY. I seriously want to marry into this crazy crew. Omgah they are infectious in so many wonderful beautiful ways. I love how Lauren has developed these and has truly made each one of them truly unique, letting their personalities shine bright. But if that wasn't enough I got the whole crew I’ve come to love, all showing me sides I'd not seen before, adding more colour & magic to an already spectacular read. For me it was like going home.
Would I recommend it to my Bestie??
Erm I've already recommended it lol. Yes. Captain is a book you can lose yourself in so easily & effortlessly. It's laughter & loving in the best of ways. Even though it is a standalone, I’d say why not read about some of the other characters I know you are going to fall in love with in this story!!! They are SPECTACULAR.
This one follows Ryan and Tessa and their relationship I think that’s as simple as it is, a nice romantic journey with some struggles is the perfect way to describe this plot.
Ryan was described many times as a sweetheart although that was mostly by his family. Ryan was super passionate when it came to his search for Samantha before he knew she was Tessa. I really did love that despite what Olivia did he was still willing to find Tessa and set her straight and be with her.
Tessa I loved her, she seemed so shy and then when you see her in her element which is working as Josh’s personal assistant she really comes alive in her job. I loved how focused she was in her job and she really just wanted them to succeed. I think the way she manages to get everyone falling in love with her is hilarious.
Tessa and Ryan their first meeting was so funny and cute and actually, I loved how nerdy it was especially when they begin talking about powerpoints it was really cute and I loved it! There were a few moments in this book that made me laugh out loud.
I think the main thing about this book I really loved was family. As it was Kat and Josh’s wedding we see the whole Morgan family and I loved that. They all teased each other and they all supported each other, I also loved Colby appearing in this book especially as I did read Hero. I think even out of the whole Morgan family Kat has to be my favourite, she was so cunning and the way she figured it out and that Tessa was really the Samantha that Ryan was searching for. I loved it. The whole family were just really supportive and you are truly sucked into this family and I love it!
The ending was really cute, the whole powerpoint presentation thing comes back away and it was honestly the perfect way to describe Tessa and Ryan!
I loved the writing, I loved the plot and characters! It was perfect onto the next one!
Tessa Rodriguez has given up on men and their idiot ways. Abstaining from physical contact from any man for over 9 months has her best friend dressing her up and taking her out to a bar but Tessa is in for a real treat when the stunningly handsome man at the bar can't keep his eyes off of her.
As their story continues from that night in the bar Lauren Rowe gives us the chance to follow Tessa and Ryan throughout everything they encounter from the night at the bar to the Morgan wedding in Maui. We feel their anger, sadness, passion, happiness and so on. You're made to feel every single emotion these characters feel because you just can't help but invest all your time in them. They have so many ups and down and it's so incredibly unfair to both of them but I wouldn't change a single thing about their story.
Ryan is an amazing character to read about. He's charming and handsome and 100% loyal to those he loves. He sets his eyes on something and doesn't give up. He's funny and caring and will do anything in his power to help anyone out *sighs* he's the perfect man with piercings in all all the right places *wink wink*
Tessa is a beautifully strong woman. After every she's had to go through in the past she's not able to trust anyone easily. She has a wall built up around her heart but she's also emotional at times and it's heartbreaking to witness, she's a nut job but an amazing one at that!
Keane and Zander make an appearance in this beauty and as always made me laugh so hard, their bromance is one of a kind and omg I need friends like them, pronto.
The whole Morgan and Faraday clan were absolutely awesome secondary characters, it was a treat to see them all in it, especially my boy Peenie.
Oh and I should mention, I feel so incredibly happy right now that I'm a Morgan. I'm part of the family hehe.
I'm in absolute awe of this book and so happy to have had the chance to review Captain for this talented woman, the Morgan's will forever be in my heart, I love that family the most, all the livelong day.
