Release Blitz! Captain By Lauren Rowe

From, Lauren Rowe, the USA Today and International bestselling 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”? Assh*le.

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*ck bones. 

I am starting to believe I have a love/hate relationship with this author.  Some books I love, some I hate, and for me, the Captain was somewhere in between.  I liked it, I wish I had loved it but while I didn’t love it I also didn’t hate it either.  I wonder if I just don’t mesh well with this author, which does happen but I do like to give more than one chance to see if it is just the specific book or all around.  I think it is a mix of the book and my mood when it came to the Captain.  It had all the structure that should have been a book that I loved, but the execution just didn’t work as well for me as I had hoped. 

I couldn’t really connect with the characters, again most likely my mood when I read it but at times I found them annoying, immature and lacking.  Now here is my conundrum with this, at the same time I did laugh, giggle while reading it but are a couple of laughs enough for me to like it?  Well it was those laughs that saved Captain from being a DNF for me. 

Give this one a chance for yourselves; if you are a fan of this author I think that you will love Captain.  As I always say, while this one did work for me as much as I hoped it would have, try it for yourself, you may very well find your new favorite book.
