Before Jody Carter and her three best friends ever set foot aboard the luxury cruise ship, Jody falls into the arms of uber hunky celebrity guest Taggart Keith, when he saves her shoe from falling to the depths of the sea. Their attraction is undeniable, but the recently divorced single mom knows the last thing she needs is to complicate her life in just seven short days. But that’s exactly what happens when Jody throws caution to the wind for once in her life and gives into a week of sensational pleasures. Taggart helps her discover her more sensual side — one tantalizing night at a time.
Shasta’s 4 1/2 star review
I was given Sail Away With Me by Kate Deveaux for an honest review for Swoon Worthy Books. I am going to be honest I had never heard of this author before, but I can say that she has a new book fan in me. I loved her writing style. She captured my heart with this wonderful read. Truly this is a romance. You see the good and the bad in the characters; there are times when you have to ask yourself is the character crazy for doing this. This is truly what I love about romance.
Jody Carter is a divorced mother who has sworn off men! Her focus is strictly being a good soccer mom to her son, helping her father and her painting. When her friend wins a trip for four on a luxury cruise ship she tries to let all of her worries go and focus on relaxing. But as she is boarding the ship her shoe gets caught in the gangway and as she is trying to get it loose, it flies off only to get saved by a very tall, tanned and handsome Adonis, who turns out to be Author Taggart Keith. But Jody tries to ignore her feelings for him, until he wears her down, but all she wants is a one week fling. She does not think she can be with him after the cruise has ended. But will she open her heart to trust him and be with a man who loves her.
Taggart Keith is aboard the Pearl Of The Sea cruise ship as part of his job. He is a motivational speaker and best-selling Author that is doing workshops on the cruise. But he happens to trapped by his feelings for Jody Carter when he meets her. He tries everything to get her to lower her defenses and when she finally does he falls head over heels for her. But the only thing is Taggart has a secret and he has to come to terms with that secret and tell Jody, but also get her to fall in love with him and convince her to be with him.
This is such a great love story. And I can’t wait to see what this author comes up with next. I am looking forward to more of her work in the future.
