Oceanic Dreams #1
This stowaway sets sail for love!
Small-time con artist Siggy needs to get out of town fast. When she’s offered tickets on the legendary Oceanic Aphrodite, Siggy jumps at the chance to get away. A week on a luxury cruise ship, with a suitcase full of clothes and all expenses paid? Yes, please! The only catch is that she has to pretend to be someone else.
No problem. Siggy has no intention of getting close enough anyone to discover her secrets.
But this is the Oceanic Aphrodite and love is in the air. When Siggy sees assistant cruise director Will taking tickets, Cupid’s arrow hits the target. Luckily, Will’s too busy smiling at her to check out her fake passport because he’ll toss Siggy off the ship if he finds out about the scam.
Onboard, dolphins and cameras and runaway ferrets bring Siggy and Will together. The more time they spend together, the more Siggy wants to tell him the truth.
Cupid’s arrow has struck deep but can Siggy stop running?
I remember watching ‘The love boat’ on tv some years ago and I did not want to miss one single episode. It goes without a doubt that this series would be straight up my alley.
First of all I want to say that I love the cover. It’s fun, it’s bright and summery. It’s also book #1 in a series of 8 stories and I really think it’s a very clever idea to make them so recognisable. The cover is always more or less the same, but with a different color in the upper part. The cute little ship plays a big part too because it’s displayed at the beginning of every chapter.
The story is light and made me smile several times. You can feel the warmth of the sun on your skin and see the views from the ship and the places where they dock.
‘You can’t hurry love’ was what Phil Collins sang, but you can’t slow it down either. When Cupid feels it’s the right moment, he will make you feel it. True love is forgiving even if you did not start your romance in a very honest way. That what life sometimes makes you do. Only the strong ones come to terms with it and fess up.
The road to happiness is paved with honesty.
This was a lovely and quick read and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. 5 stars.
Thank you, Holly Kerr
