When Alysin decided to surprise her boyfriend at work with dinner, the surprise was on her. Since he was going at it with his secretary on the conference table, she packed a bag and called her BFF. Jolie and Alysin had been traveling the country, working as digital nomads for ten years ever since graduation. Taking this as a sign it was time for a new move, they decided to take a cruise, regroup, and make a plan.

Then she meets Mr. Bedroom Eyes. Following her lead, they pretend to be married so that she can rid herself of the guy who started hitting on her before the boat left the dock. Though it was supposed to be a momentary arrangement, he asks her to take it one step farther. Then another and another. The cruise promises to be memorable in every way that matters.

Along the way, Alysin learns that she won’t have to fake an orgasm if she’s with someone who knows what to do, that not all men suck, but the best ones suck really well, and that sometimes what starts out as something pretend, can fast become something completely real. Will the woman who lives life with no regrets, regret that she made that stupid rule about not exchanging names and contact info?


Alysin and her BFF decide to take a much needed vacation to help Alysin regroup after she finds her boyfriend having sex with his secretary one night at the office when she brings him a surprise dinner.

They end up on a Carnival Cruise determined to spend the week together and move on. The have been besties since college and are always regrouping together. That is what friends are for.

The first morning on the cruise she gets hit on by Mr. Creepy. In order to get rid of him she kisses Mr. Bedroom Eyes and pretends that they are married.  Later that day they meet up again and agree to pretend to be married for the entire cruise.  The rules of the game are simple. No names are to be exchanged and no private information given. They embark on a week full of fun.

It was a quick and easy read. The sexual tension between them was wonderfully done. I must admit that there are a few non traditional sex scenes. One with Alysin and her friend Joli, one with the three of them and a third with another couple. I thought they were very well written and enjoyed them.

The story line was great. I kept hoping for them to give in and exchange names and numbers, I was ready for the happy ever after. I was routing for them, the story line was well done and very interesting. The sex scenes were hot without being over done. When I found out that they was a part two I believe my jaw hit the ground. Oh geez. I guess I better go and mark it on the calendar. I would give this book a 4.5/5. I truly enjoyed it.
