* * A New Adult novel set aboard a cruise. The perfect contemporary romance to get away for an afternoon * *
Seven days aboard a luxury cruise.
The perfect getaway from it all.
At least, that’s what Georgia Cantwell is hoping for...
With her inbox filling with menacing emails, Georgia just wants to run away from her shattered life on her sorority's winter break cruise. What she doesn’t need is green-eyed Jace McLaren seeing through her tacked-on smile and stealing her breath away with each tantalizing kiss.
Growing up with a father in jail, Jace knows from experience that if you’re going through hell, there’s no way out but through. He has always steered away from girls like Georgia with her ice-queen attitude, but she’s in real trouble, and despite himself he pushes past her walls.
As much as Georgia tries to ignore it, Jace won’t let her pretend with him. But she can’t tell him the truth. Her past would ruin his trust, her family, her future—everything.
But out on the open ocean, there’s nowhere to hide. And when Georgia’s secrets come tumbling out, it might take more than Jace to get her through the storm.
I read this book in one sitting, sort of; it was like a night then the next day. I couldn’t put it down and I honestly loved the entire story and the characters. It was cute, intense, romantic and funny.
This is a great book to read on a quiet day or even on the beach (or any day really) 😉 it makes me want to go on a cruise (never have) they seem like so much fun 🙂
Georgia Cantwell is having some issues but she can’t tell anyone so he has no choice but to go on a cruise with her college sorority Kappa Beta Kappa and best friend. She was suppose to room with her boyfriend Hunter but they just broke up and now she has to room with someone else. That someone just so happens to be the extremely handsome Jace McLaren who just so happens to be the womanizer of the connecting fraternity.
I thought Georgia was annoying but I liked her, I just wanted her to stop being so negative and have a good time, with everything going on at home I think she needed a break. I felt bad for her but I wanted to smack her around a little bit. Jace McLauren isn’t what he seems but to me he seems ADORABLE!! I loved him and thought he was such a super sweetheart and funny. Hearing his story I felt bad for him but I can tell he was really trying to make something of himself. I adored them together and wanted them to be together so bad they were perfect for each other.
The story is told in both of their POV’s, which I actually liked, I enjoyed reading about how they both felt about the situations and what they were thinking about each other. It’s a cute and interesting story with lots of intense moment. It has some steamy parts that would make your grandma blush, unless your grandma is a dirty birdie then she will love it 🙂
I gave Full Steam Ahead by Valerie Chase 4/5 stars. I loved the characters, the story and the steamy parts. The story was sweet and intense, a read that will surely keep you up way past your bed time to finish. I highly recommend!
