Publisher's Summary

When Cara is made redundant and unable to find another job in journalism, she takes on a seasonal position on a cruise ship with Billie, her best friend's girlfriend. Billie isn't her type at all, but as the two grow closer during their time at sea, Cara finds herself torn between loyalty toward her friend Dan and her growing feelings for the beautiful and flirtatious Billie, who might very well be the best thing that's ever happened to her. What do you do when the only thing you want is the one thing you can't have? 

Keeping a distance is hard when opposites attract. And running away is pointless when desire can cross oceans....

An OK book

Was a little too slow, the characters well not well developed and the narration could have been better, it was a little too nasal for my ear, but the narrator did a good job with different accents... I would recommend it for vacation when you have time to listen to it and enjoy the different port, not really giving information more than you can find in regular tourist brochures, but still better for vacation than just a drive in the country side...

Totally Enjoyable!

I enjoyed listening to this romance. Lovable characters and exciting settings around the world made this a captivating story. I also appreciated the narrator's ability to express so many different voices throughout the story. Well done!

I’m a sucker for Lise Gold apparently....

This is the third book by this author and apparently she has my number! These are not meant to be great literature, obviously, but for what they are they’re very enjoyable and erotic and when I need an escape I can get swept away which is exactly what I want them to do. Second time with this narratetor and though she has some quirks that I wish she didn’t overall she handles the myriad accents etc well which ain’t easy! I will probably listen to these again—the travel, the sex, the adventure, the romance....life is hard—these books are easy.

Fun, steamy read

When I was in middle school I wanted to work on a cruise ship when I grew up. This never happened, so I enjoyed living vicariously through Billie and Cara. The chemistry between those two was full of electricity, and the storyline felt natural and realistic. I thought the narrator did a wonderful job.

Another Great Audiobook from Lise Gold!

ok, if I could, I'd give this audiobook a 4.5 rating. I really liked the storyline. Cara meets Billie when Billie sleeps with Cara's best friend/roommate (who is a man). cara needs a job and Billie gets her one on the cruise ship she works on 6 months of the year. they bunk together on the ship and hang out often... then there's drama when the guy/roommate back home discovers cara and Billie are more than friends. I eventually got irritated with cara for running away from the whole situation but I guess there was a need for a little sadness before they officially became a happy couple with everyone's blessing. Narrator did a very good job with accents (not one of my favorites, but still very good)

An adventurous love story

This was such a fun read. The relationship angst is believable and realistic. The world adventures are well incorporated in a refreshing and humorous manner. I like Lise Gold's writing style and C.C.Sinclair did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life through her narration. The emotional shifts of the story line and characters are engaging and made this a audio book that I wanted to never pause for my life. I look forward to more of Lise Gold.

Wonderful story

I enjoyed the plot and the storyline. The characters are well rounded. I fell in love with the women as they fell in love with each other. I hurt with them and laughed with them. Every character was just so fun!

A great slow burn romance with picturesque scenery

This was a slow burn romance that I very much enjoyed. The narrator did an excellent job! There were distinct voices for the characters so it was easy to tell which character was speaking which in turn made the story flow easily. The descriptions of the places were fascinating. The sex scenes were hot. I've enjoyed her other books and look forward to more.

way too many chapters

The editing of chapters into way too many. chopped up the flow of the story.

A Great Holiday Listen

This book is a great listen while you are on holiday or any other time. It was nice how the romance built between Cara and Billie, while they worked on the cruise ship. Billie was my favourite character as it was nice how upbeat she was. The narrator did a good job with the voices of the characters.

An easy listen

Fancy a trip halfway around the world aboard a cruise ship in company with Cara and Billie? Life aboard the ship and the places they travel to are worth the listen, but add the romance and the characters and you have a winner. I think CC Sinclair did a good job although some of the accents were a little off....for me that did not detract...there were just so many accents needed. If you need escapism then this is it.
