“It’s only a matter of time.”
Lauren Rowe is one of those authors that effortlessly combines humour and romance. Her comedic timing is always on point, her books never fail to make me laugh, but more importantly they never fail to make me fall in love and Captain is no different.
Although Captain can be read as a standalone, I personally loved the fact that all the characters from past books in this connected series made their presence well and truly felt and it is this sense of family that made this book all the more entertaining and heart-warming.
Lauren Rowe has this innate ability to create real, likeable, relatable characters that take pleasure in drawing the reader in from the very beginning and making them feel a part of the story as a whole. It is this feeling of living and breathing the story that is testament to Lauren Rowe’s writing ability and her inherent talent of nailing character connection, on point dialogue, mastering emotion and building perfect storylines that are engaging, all-consuming, smile inducing and make your heart fit to burst.
“…Please. I’m wrecked. She’s Cinderella and I’m holding a glass slipper.”
Captain/Rum Cake/Captain Morgan/Bacardi aka Ryan Morgan is a man that will melt the hardest of hearts. His personality is infectious, his heart his huge and he loves fierce. Alpha, extremely protective, totally adorable this is a man that you cannot help but take into your heart. Yes, this is insta love, but the Morgans seem to have a genetic trait in love at first sight. A chance meeting, an instant attraction, deep conversation and then it all goes to s***. With very little information to go on, the lengths that Ryan goes to, to find his soulmate is stuff that lifetime movies are made from.
“My name is Ryan Ulysses Morgan, sweetheart,” he says, his voice low and intense. “Captain Morgan. And trust me, baby, you’re not only gonna know my name before the night is through, you’ll be screaming it at the top of your lungs.”
I am not going to mention the name of our heroine because I want that to be revealed to you as it was to me. I loved that she had a heart of gold, was soft in all the right places and yet was fierce when needed. Her outlook on love was tainted and her propensity to trust was non-existent but she was incredibly loyal, her personality infectious and while on the outside she seemed quiet and reserved, the inner minx was just waiting to be unleashed and boy did Ryan unleash it.
“I just realized I’m a truly horrible person. I don’t respect you at all, not even a little bit—which means I’m using you for nothing but sex. If our genders were reversed, I’d disgust myself.”
This book was utter perfection, I loved everything about it and everything it stood for. That initial instant attraction, the love hate, that constant battle to fight the magnetic pull that these two had, the little glimpses, the dialogue and intense chemistry especially between the sheets…. scorching! The sense of family whether you are blood or not was prevalent throughout, the interactions, the camaraderie the abundance of love was infectious. This was a real feel good read and at the end…all I had was a huge smile and an incredibly warm heart. Once again, Lauren Rowe nailed it.
“And I love you—the absolute most…Loving you is what I was born to do.”
I tell it like it is. Although I love to read, I am nitpicky. I simply do not hand out five-star ratings unless the book is near perfect, and trust me, near perfect is a rarity in my eyes.
So hold on to your hat because I'm about to say something I don't think I've ever said...
I wish there were more stars to give Captain, because, baby, I'd award them all and make the Captain a muthereffin' General. (Yeah, that was corny, but I can't make myself delete it.)
I am a devoted fan of Lauren Rowe; I have been since the beginning when my everlasting devotion to all things Jonas Faraday began. He is the pinnacle of all heroes in my book... that is until Captain Ryan Morgan arrived on the scene.
Sorry, Jonas, but you have just been dethroned. (Cue Whitney Houston, though, Jonas, because... I (eyeeeeeee) Will Always Love Yooooouuuuu!)
Ryan Morgan only beats Jonas because he has a sense of humor way more evolved than my Plato-quoting former fave. Ryan is smart, devoted, loving, romantic, sweet... all the traits that wooed me to Jonas, but there's nada sexier than a sense of humor to me, especially in a tattooed, pierced and muscled package. Add a terrific family to boot, SOLD.
Tessa is pretty terrific herself. She is just that little bit of uptight so my (yes, MY) Ryan has to work for her, which of course was the tipping point that allowed us to see how much of a stud he is. Of course, because he's a Rowe character, he's a bit flawed, but that only makes him more endearingly perfect as he fumbles around trying to do the right things. Luckily, Tessa is worthy.
I love how the entire Faraday/Morgan clan played their parts in this tale. Every family member has his and her own distinct personality. I love how Mrs. Rowe captures and portrays their quirks so well so that we don't read recycled bits of the same characteristics over and over.
And being a teacher who loves power points, I have a whole new respect for their potential.
It doesn't hurt that this talented author chick knows her grammar, either. How refreshing it is to know that reading a Rowe book won't be a chore. Flawless writing is ALWAYS a plus.
The wait for this book was torture since everywhere I turned, I saw people gushing over pre-released copies. This scared me. Usually the more I anticipate a book, the more I'm disappointed in it when it is finally released. Thank goodness this book proved that usual situation false.
Sidenote: I have to say that if I had met Keane in this book before reading Ball Peen Hammer, I would have forgiven the first few chapters of that book. Peen was an absolute delight.
