I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
*Sigh*. Sail Away with Me is such an entrancing romance. I absolutely love a story where everything seems to work out for everyone involved. What better place than a cruise ship to find true love. Thank goodness I'm getting on a cruise ship in less than a week, or I think I might have died of jealousy! Ms. Deveaux has created two great characters and written them into a wonderful love story.
Jody is newly divorced, but it sounds like her marriage was over long before the papers were finalized. With a twelve-year-old son to care for, she doesn't think she has time to even look for another love. Fortunately, her flying shoe thought differently and flew straight to sexy Taggart. Such an amusing way to meet a guy. What follows is a whirlwind romance full of fun and late night passion aboard a glamorous cruise ship.
Taggart is a hunky self-help guru who is on the cruise hosting a series of lectures. He comes off as a player the was he's so smooth with Jody. This guy really has the right moves. I doubt there's a woman out there who could resist a full blast of his charm aimed at them. He falls hard for Jody. But the two soon discover that life on land isn't as magical as it is at sea. Real life intrudes, serving up some major conflict in their budding relationship. For a self-help guru, Taggart certainly is blind when it comes to his own life.
The first half of the story takes place during the cruise and the second part is the aftermath. I loved all the romantic scenes on the cruise ship. Taggart and Jody were sizzling. The secondary characters were a lot of fun. Each one had just enough back story to make them interesting. If you're looking for a fast-paced, sweet romance with lots of sizzling encounters, be sure to add Sail Away With Me to your TBR list.
