Publisher's Summary

From, Lauren Rowe, the USA Today best-selling 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"? Asshole. 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--k bones.
For fans of Ball Peen Hammer and The Club Series, please note Captain features Ryan Morgan and takes place one year before the events of Ball Peen Hammer. It also includes characters from both Ball Peen Hammer and The Club Series, though Captain is a complete standalone.

OK.. so now that you've been seduced by the cover, been tempted by the synopsis or maybe you were drawn by the author's name alone. Whatever the reason, let me assure you, this story lives up to expectations, delivers a plot that has humor, heart and heat.. all set within the backdrop of a loving group of family and friends. And it centres on two unforgettable characters who fall instantly in lust, and maybe love, with each other.. but thankfully it takes a wee while longer to clear up wrong misconceptions, crazy misunderstandings and unnecessary misgivings. I say thankfully because I would've been robbed of all the vibes.. the flirtatious witty banter, the butterflies, the chills and thrills, the goosebumps, the deliciously hot sexcapades, the swoonworthy sentiments and the feel-good happy ending. Everything was perfectly written because this author knows how to bring you into a story, knows how to capture your attention from the get go, knows what you're looking for and delivers it in spades.

Worth a credit? Oh boy YES.. and, not only does Lauren Rowe know how to write an awesome rom/com, she is very talented when it comes to narration too so, together with the sexy voice of John Lane, they brought this dual POV storyline to life, gave it wings and made it soar high above a lot of other listens in this genre. So prepare to smile, to swoon, to laugh, to get frustrated, to drool, to fall in love.. and to dream.

The story was good. It was laugh out loud funny at times. However, my biggest problem with this story was with the narrators. When I was deciding if I should select this book, I noticed that the author was reading for the main female character. I have never listened to an erotica romance story where the author had read her own work. My first thought was not to purchase this book for that reason. I finally decided to give the book a chance. Well, I should have followed my first mind.

Lauren Rowe (the author) over-acted most of the story. It is not my intent to be mean spirited, just honest. Lauren Rowe is clearly a good writer but the book would have been a better listen if a proven professional narrator had read & act out the story. The male narrator, John Lane, was a lot better. His reading of the male character was credible the majority of the time. There were times, however, where he over-acted (and sometimes under-acted) his characters scenes

I gave the story 4 stars, the narrators 2 stars & overall a 3 star rating.

Would I recommend this book? Not really. I do believe however, that everyone should make up their own minds.
