Got a lot more than I bargained for with this book, in a very good way! A fun sexy adventure on the high seas. This one has it all, the nice girl, (Ellie) the sweet 'bestie', the token hilarious gay guy, and of course the superbitch, they are all there... not to mention many other loveable characters who all come together to make this a very fun and heart-warming read indeed. Although it is fiction, you cannot help but feel the author truly has intimate knowledge of cruise ships and the outrageous scandals and affairs that we all know take place upon them. Perfect summer vacation reading, looking forward to the next one...a great book. --Nick Winters, Author (Advance Reader Copy)
What a fab book! I have read loads of chick-lit; some great, some not so great and some, like this one; a brilliantly observed page-turner, that will not portray our heroine as a stranger to us but instead just like us!! At times she's quirky, insecure and naive - I can really identify with that!! She finds herself in situations she never dreamed of when she leaves home and it's reassuring to read about her struggles to navigate the choppy waters of romance rather than float through life succeeding, which can be the unrealistic theme of similar books. This book will make you laugh and, possibly cry as it tugs at your heartstrings when times are tough for Ellie. There is a lot of fun in her new life but also a lot of changes to be adapted to which makes for a riveting read. What is going to happen to Ellie............I can't wait for the next installment so I can find out!! --Claudine Gillard (Advance Reader Copy)
When Ellie's fiancé cheats on her with a younger, slimmer, blonde from the office, she boots him out of her life and finds solace in a fabulous photography job aboard a Caribbean cruise ship. Twenty-four hours on board and she’s already shagged her sexy Texan colleague, who happens to love her muffin-top. Unfortunately he’s leaving in a week, and his ex-girlfriend, a hot-headed Brazilian with stripper moves right out of the 90s and a talent for stealing boyfriends, is still on board and out for revenge.
Ellie must work out how to deal with the loco ex, sort the lying scumbags from the good guys, and figure out how many crew members in a cabin it takes before officially becoming group sex. Who the hell knows? (It’s five, actually.) It’s a world completely unlike the one she left behind, but as she tries to find her place on board, Ellie discovers laughter and tears in equal measure. And in the midst of the craziness, she realises the greatest thing this lifestyle change has given her is the chance to rediscover herself.
