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.
OH. MY. GIDDY. AUNT!! I think I’m at a loss for words over this one……….
I’ve been following Lauren and her writing since she first released The Club books. Still now these are my all time favourite series of books, I just couldn’t get enough of them and recommend everyone to read them. So when I got the opportunity to read Captain I was over the moon!! But what I wasn’t expecting was to be completely and utterly floored by the book and by Lauren’s writing. I am in awe!!
This to me was just soo much more…… like that feeling you get when you’ve been away maybe for a while, and its time to return home to family and friends, to laughter, joy, snuggles and camaraderie. Its like being wrapped up in your favourite blanket with snuggly socks and a hot cup of chocolate when its cold and wintry outside…. it gives you that warm rosy glow, that feeling of comfort. Add all this with some ridiculously red hot steamy panty melting sexy scenes and some moments where you just can’t help laughter from bursting from you out loud and you might just be starting to get a feel for what this book is like!!
If you’ve read The Club series of books then you will know the Faradays and the Morgans, and just how fabulous these families are!! If you’ve not read them yet, I guarantee you will want to after reading Captain – which is a standalone, but has the characters from The Club series in there.
This book is based around one of the Morgan brothers, Ryan, and his girl Tessa. They have an instant lightning bolt connection, a soul meeting its mate, but this changes to enemies wanting to hate each other but unable to deny their destiny to be together, and ends up being a very deep and intense enemies to lovers/friends relationship that had me swooning, with a permanent goofy smile on my face.
But its not just Ryan and Tessa that make this book what it is – its the rest of the Morgans and Faradays and their unique ways that really bring this book to life. This story just has everything for me – a perfect blend of friendship, love, laughter, banter, passion and angst. THE FEELS!!!!
It was more than just reading a book, it was like actually being there and participating!! I was well and truly transported into their world and experienced everything the characters did and felt throughout the story. From jittery butterflies in my stomach, to belly ache from laughing, to my ovaries exploding at the sweetness, to panties melting from the hotness, with some OMG and WTF moments in there as well!!
I seriously can’t recommend this book enough to you!! Lauren’s writing talents continue to grow from strength to strength, and this book just proves that. I completely and utterly loved it to bits and can’t wait for you to meet the Captain – expect your world to be blown smithereens!
