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.
USA Today and internationally bestselling author Lauren Rowe lives in San Diego, California, where, in addition to writing books, she performs with her dance/party band at events all over Southern California, writes songs, takes embarrassing snapshots of her ever-patient Boston terrier, Buster, spends time with her wonderful family, and narrates audiobooks. Much to Lauren’s thrill, her books have been translated all over the world in multiple languages and hit multiple domestic and international bestseller lists. With enticing characters, enthralling situations and a general love of romantic fiction, Lauren has created a world of her own, full of wit and sensual desire.
Every so often, we find a book that by the end of the first page we start thinking this is going to be one of those books I can't put down. Captain was exactly that. I devoured this steamy book full of love, passion, so much humor, and a whole lot of heart, in just a few hours. I simply could not step away from Tessa and Ryan. Their chemistry was off the charts. The story flowed effortlessly. Generally insta-love stories don't do it for me, but I never really got that feeling from this one. I didn't feel like I missed the beginning of their relationship, Ryan and Tessa just seemed to fit from the beginning.
If anyone can change his ways and settle into a serious relationship, it's Ryan Morgan. If there is one person that can change him, it's Tessa. If anyone can accept the fact that the man she had a crush on is marrying someone else, it's Tessa. If there is one man that can show her that she hadn't met the right man yet, it's Ryan. Together these too will burn up the pages. Even a few misunderstandings can't keep fate from bringing these two back together.
