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.

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.

Was hoping for a smart romance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I love the Morgans, don't get me wrong, but the female lead wasn't the smartest tool in the shed. Be that as it may, this was a great fun story. I would recommend, but only to those who are looking for cute and crazy fun who doesn't mind an annoying female lead.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Ryan. He's sweet and all around good guy. Not sure if I would've been as patient with f in the story. I would've given up on her and moved on to someone else.

What about Lauren Rowe and John Lane ’s performance did you like?

Mr. Lane's performance was, and always is perfect. The author didn't do a bad job at all.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The powerpoint presentations were very fun to listen to.

Any additional comments?

My only gripe with Captain is that the female character tended to jump to too many conclusions, (to the point where I'm convinced she's just not very smart or unable to learn from her mistakes.) and was wishy washy with her feelings for Ryan. So many authors do this, and it's tiresome.

Everything else in this book was pure gold.

Captain is 1 hell of a HOT, SEXY & who has this mindset that he doesn't believe you have that 1 true love, which is so unexpected considering as his parents are still married & madly in love with each other. But Captain just beds 1 woman after another & if he does start seeing them, they go all out going all stalker'ish and denial'able.
Then we have pa Tessa who is out with her Best mate air hostess Charlotte & it's here where Captain & 'Sarah' meet.
So Captain is the brother of her boss' fiancee & it's here during the week of the wedding, we get to see how these 2 are totally gobsmacked in finding out who & how involved they're going to be within their future lives. And there is some humorous areas & then other areas where you could shake them to make them see what's happening between them.

it's a really good easy read/listening novel, really recommend it to everyone who loves HEA's & a light hearted novel

It was nice having Author Lauren Rowe narrate Tessa's/Teresa/Sarah POV. And hot, sexy Captain Morgan's narrator, did sound quite sexy.
