The Lothario, aka THE LUST BOAT, sails again!
Special Agent, Bree Stanton has big plans. As soon as she solves her current case, she's moving on, even if it means leaving her heart behind. Falling in love with Drew Whitcomb was never supposed to happen, but she has no intention of giving up her dreams for a guy who's content to spend his days judging lewd contests, and pining for his best friend's wife.

Drew's job providing security for the Lothario's owners is the perfect cover. Keeping an eye on Bree isn't a hardship, but keeping his hands off her is more difficult. And convincing her to give him a chance is proving to be a mission impossible, given that she thinks he's still in love with his former partner, now his best friend’s wife. Drew is looking forward to the day he can show Bree the man under the cover, but until that day, he's going to do all he can to make sure she won't leave him when he does.

Set sail on the Lothario for a voyage filled with sex, lies and spies, and a bit of romance too!

I actually enjoyed this book. Being that it is not the first of a series but in fact the fifth book. Even though this can be read as a stand-alone book, I felt a little lost in some of the background of the story. I really wish I read the back stories before reading this one just to understand a bit more. With that being said I still really did like the book.

I love a story that builds up the relationship rather than dive right into it. Both main characters are strong and determined to get their way. His get the girl, hers stay clear of the man in front of her. Being on a ship Bree cannot get away from Drew if she tried, but try she does. This leads to a game of cat and mouse that deep down Bree knows she can’t win.

Both have secrets they are hiding and this just adds on the story and the pull of each characters. As the story goes on you feel the pull of both Bree and Drew’s emotions and want them to just give in and spill the beans about what they are hiding including the way they really feel about each other.

This book had some really great suspenseful moments that leave you on the edge of your seat. A hero who lets a woman take a control and a heroine determined to win in the end.

4 out of 5 stars!
