Cruise director Michaela Western has everything she wants–everything except a sex life. But there are no secrets on cruise ships. She risked her job once for a dalliance with the Captain, and won’t do it again for a few minutes of toe-curling pleasure. Until a devilishly handsome new staffer with a body made for sin tempts her to walk on the wild side…
Investment billionaire Dylan Johns always gets what he wants. He is used to giving orders–not taking them–until he’s forced to go on hiatus from his investment company. To bide his time and carry out an old dream, he takes a job on a cruise ship–and ends up taking orders from his gorgeous, but uptight, new boss. He is determined to loosen her up with a fun onboard romance, but their no-strings fling turns serious and Dylan is forced to confess his lies.
When the affair threatens to shatter Michaela’s own career dreams, she finds herself caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
Michele De Winton managed to transport my mind right into this novel. It took me a while to form my emotional ties with these characters, and while I think they are well-written and perfectly rounded, the oomph I usually get from the characters in the beginning of a story did seem to be lacking.
I was especially pleased with the heroine in this story. She was independent yet flawed and it made me happy reading a story where the heroine has a strong personality. The relationship communication between the two characters was a high-point for me, even though misunderstanding carries the story.
I loved that the story headed down the normal road of predictable, and seeing Michaela and Dylan work through everything and getting their HEA had me full of smiles.
Michele De Winton absolutely knows how to write fun and sexy romances with gorgeous hero’s and fantastic heroine’s, this book is definitely worth the read.
