Cruising for Love:
When Andi Greene heads out on a cruise, she’s pumped for a fun week of sun bathing and chilling with her best friend. Little does she know her best friend has a number of surprises in store. The first is the cruise’s theme of bondage and domination. The other? Ship’s doctor Jonah Coleman, Andi’s first love, her high school boyfriend —the boy she thought she’d marry before he moved across the country and eventually dropped her cold. But there’s nothing cold about their reunion. Instead sparks fly, and Andi’s relaxing cruise seems set to turn into a week of hot loving.

Jonah can’t believe he’s getting a second chance with Andi —a grown —up Andi who might need more than he knows how to give. But he’s willing to put everything on the line to find out if the heat between them is just the remnants of teenage love or something more. And even though he has to let her go again, he’s determined this time she’ll never forget him.

Cruising for Love ~ Review

It took me awhile to get into Cruising for Love.  If I'm being honest, just when I was getting ready to put the book down, the hero showed up and I started liking it.   

Andi Greene and Jonah Coleman were high school sweethearts until Jonah’s parents moved the family across country.  As usual, the two ended up losing touch.  Andi’s best friend KK plans a cruise ship vacation with a nice little surprise for Andi.  Andi and Jonah turned out to be a really likeable and loveable couple.  Their chemistry was hot and I'm sure if the book continued it would have been even hotter.

Waiting on Love:
After a disastrous vacation breakup with the man who was supposed to be The One, KK O'Brien decides she’s done. Love will find her when the time is right.

On her flight home, she’s seated next to a male soldier, Aidan Dominguez, whom she ignores, because one: he is male (a trait she’s recently excised from her mind), two: he’s younger than her, and three: he’s on his way to be deployed overseas (geographically undesirable). When weather grounds her flight, she agrees to a drink and more with Aidan. After all, he’s leaving the country and she’s done projecting hope and wedding bells onto encounters with men. KK knows this is nothing more than a one-night stand with an extremely sexy soldier. It’s practically her patriotic duty to send him off to war with a good last memory.

Aidan and KK have a great night together and they part with the expectation that they’ll never see each other again. Only, a few weeks later, the first email from Aidan arrives. Once she replies, another arrives, and soon an epistolary love affair blossoms where love was never supposed to grow. When Aidan asks for a shot at being her man, KK must decide if she’s brave enough to take another chance on love.

Waiting on Love ~ Review

Waiting on Love is told in first person, from the point of view of KK O’Brien.  I’m not a fan of first person narration, but it’s easy to get past.  Readers were first introduced to KK in Cruising for Love.  I have to say that she was not one of my favorite characters. Going into reading Waiting for Love, I don’t think I was rooting for her.  But my impression of KK changed by about five pages into the book, when I got to see a vulnerable side to her.

KK (Kristen Katherine) O’Brien is unlucky in love.  When her boyfriend breaks up with her, he tells her that she’s the fun party girl and not the long-term kind you take home to your mother.  This realization crushes KK and she vows to give up men and dating. After finally catching a flight from Phoenix to go back home to DC, she just wants to be left alone.  But the soldier sitting next to her has other plans.

Aidan Dominguez is saying goodbye to America for at least the next year.  He’s on his way to Afghanistan, but can’t help to befriend the attractive nervous woman sitting next to him on the plane.  When their flight gets cancelled, Aidan offers to share his room with a cash strapped KK, with the idea of them only being friends.

Of course, one thing leads to another and the friendship developing drives these two to become bed buddies for one night.  But Aidan isn’t done with KK just yet.  The two start to communicate while Aidan is overseas and KK has to come to terms with the fact that yes she’s attracted to this man. She also has to get over her issue of him being younger than she is.

I loved these two as a couple.  Through their letter and email correspondences, they actually start to get to know each other better.  This same correspondence forces KK to grow up and become a serious person.  From the start, Aidan is all in with them being a couple and KK has to try to catch up.  Their chemistry was simply great.  They have this playful banter with one another that’s amazing.  You can’t help but to root for things to work out for these two.  I am so glad I actually read this book.
