The Best of You by Sophie-Leigh Robbins / #Review @SophieLRobbins



Oceanic Dreams #8

They may be faking their relationship, but they can’t fake the sparks that fly when they’re together.

Desperate to get away from her cheating ex, travel vlogger Holly books a last-minute cruise to the Caribbean, even though the only available packages left are part of a singles cruise. Of course, Holly has no intention of participating in any dating activities. The further away she can stay from love, the better.

Then she runs into Noah, who is equally appalled by the idea of dating anyone after being dumped on his wedding day. They immediately bond over their failed love lives and it doesn’t take long for them to become friends.

When Noah witnesses another passenger hitting on Holly and refusing to take no for an answer, he volunteers to be her fake boyfriend. But as time passes by, they start to realize they are getting more than what they bargained for.

Will Holly accept what’s right in front of her or will she keep running from her dreams?



My Review

Sadly this was my last cruise on the Aprodithe. I will miss all the love and romance that people found on board and it was very nice that although the stories were totally readable as stand alones, there were little mentions about people or events from the other books mixed in everyone of them. 

I would not mind going on a few (read a lot LOL) more adventures on this ship, but the end is the end I’m afraid.

You can tell yourself untill you are old and grey that you are not looking for a new relationship, but love does not take orders. It appears, often when you least expected it and then it’s up to you to take it or leave it. Sometimes you need someone to point out the obvious.

I enjoyed this tale a lot and it made me smile more than once. The author created great characters to entertain the readers. 5 stars.

Thank you, Sophie-Leigh Robbins
