“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.”
Ryan and Tessa meet at a bar. Ryan coming fresh off a break up and Tessa also coming off a break up but her drought is much longer than Ryan's.
I absolutely loved Ryan!!! If you are looking for a sexy, successful, driven leading man who knows what he wants you have found him. Ryan sees Tessa enter the bar and he's done for. This is insta-love at its most organic and finest.
"Hot Brunette, returns my smile and quickly looks down again, her cheeks blazing, but I've already seen my future in her eyes."
"I felt like I was reuniting with her rather than meeting her for the first time."
Ryan, like my man Jonas, knows his soul mate when he sees her and is not backing down until he makes Tessa his.
A misunderstanding ensues tearing these two apart before they begin. For months Ryan hires Henne to help track down his dream woman without success, but fate reunites these two at a destination wedding where Tessa's boss marries Ryan's sister. Serendipity, Fate, Destiny, call it what you will but you know these two are meant to be. Tessa wrongfully believes Ryan to be a lying cheater but her body is not denying their chemistry despite her head trying to put her in check. Let the hot hate sex begin!
One of the best things about this book...The Morgans! I fell in love with Momma Lou, Colby, Dax, and Keane. Their nicknames for each other are hilarious. I'm praying to the romance gods we get Colby's story next. I can just tell it would be amazing!
Congrats Ms Rowe on a beautiful, emotional, fun, and sexy love story!
Ryan Morgan (AKA Rum Cake, Captain, etc) is ready to settle down. It's a shame that his older brother was 110% right when he said his now ex-girlfriend, Olivia, was a bunny-boiler. Ready to meet up with his soon to be new brother-in-law for drinks he meets Tessa instead. With some falsehoods right out the gate and a disastrous ending to the night, Ryan realizes the woman of his dreams has just slipped through his hands.
Tessa has put romance on the back-burner indefinitely. Her soccer-player cheating ex has pretty much ruined her trust of men and even her inclination to get back out there and date. Having just moved to Seattle, her best friend and flight-attendant decides to make a quick trip out to her and take her out for the night. What starts out as a fun night with a new, fun, identity for kicks and giggles, turns into the night she meets a man who truly speaks to her soul, until his girlfriend shows up calling her names...
These two are then thrown together after months apart in the most unlikely of circumstances and the awesomeness of the story grows from there. As previously stated, this was funny, endearing, and so much heart-wrenching fun to read. I heart Ryan so much with his rum and pirate tattoos. Enjoy!
