AP new - synopsis.jpg
Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls would not mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs.

He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves.


We’re got nothing in common . . . except for one thing. Our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it?

Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.

Release Blitz : Captain by Lauren Rowe

Title: Captain
Author: Lauren Rowe
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 15, 2017
Blurb
From, Lauren Rowe, the USA Today and International
bestselling author of The Club Series and Ball Peen Hammer comes a sexy standalone romance: Captain.

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.

 

REVIEW 

Reviewed by Anna on Behalf of KFF

~ 4.5 Stars ~

This is the first book I’ve read by author Lauren Rowe, a standalone sexy romance with a lot of funny moments. The characters are also featured in other books which I haven’t read yet.

The two main characters are Ryan Morgan aka Captain and Tessa Rodriguez aka T-Rod. There are a lot of secondary characters which can be confusing especially the Morgan clan. So we have the Morgan siblings: Eldest son, Colby aka Cheese, second son Ryan, then we have Kat, the only girl in the family, Keane a former baseball player turned male stripper and the youngest of the brood is Dax, future rock star.

Tessa works for Josh who is Ryan’s soon to be brother-in-law. Ryan and Tessa meet in a bar without realising that both are somehow connected. Is it love or lust at first sight? But something happens that night that leads Ryan into a merry chase with Tessa.

I must be honest I found the first few chapters a bit slow but after getting into a few more chapters I was hooked. Ryan and Tessa are hilarious at times. The banter between these two just made me giggle and the Morgan family rooting for them are so much fun to read.

“Fuck if I know!” she shrieks. “I’ve done nothing! I’ve said nothing! I’ve been my usual, boring potted-plant self around them at all times. I have no freaking idea why they’re both utterly convinced I’m some kind of beacon of wonderfulness who’s destined to incubate your babies!”

Half of the story is set in Hawaii for Josh and Kat’s wedding where the Morgan clan and Josh’s brother Jonah, their friends and frat brothers all in attendance. Imagine this: the backdrop of Maui combined with a lot of testosterone hotness of the Morgan brothers and their equally as hot friends and future in-laws plus the sizzling sex scenes between the two main characters.

This author gives you the total package in Ryan. Tatted and pierced, quotes lines from Moby Dick and is so romantic he will make you swoon:

“Baby, I’ve loved you from the minute I laid eyes on you.” I swallow hard. “You’re my fate. My destiny. And I knew it the minute I saw you.” A lump rises in my throat. “Tessa, my love for you is involuntary. You’re my “kick” when the doctor bangs on my knee with a hammer. I’ve got no choice but to love you.”

When you are recovering from a book funk or just finished a dark story then this angst-free light-hearted romance of Tessa and Ryan is the perfect book to follow through. And I definitely would look up the other characters and read their stories. 4.5 stars from me!
