Alex Bradshaw has just been sacked from Kranston Shipping Enterprises. For no good reason. Alex, forty-two and a former chief executive of the world's biggest shipping firm, and three of his friends - Jake, Cody and Phyllis - have lost not only their jobs but their retirement packages as well. Tom Portelli, Kranston's owner, is into illegal shipping of exotic animals, Krugerrand (South African gold coins) and diamonds. But Portelli doesn't know that his disgruntled former employees know of his i ...more
During the first 150 pages I was laughing/chuckling a lot. At one time I almost wondered if I was drinking and didn’t know it because I was laughing so much and feeling giddy. Too many contemporary romance books that claim to be funny don’t make me laugh. This book did! It’s silly funny little things as this group of people are interacting and deciding what to do.
The l ...more
The setting is wonderful, it really made me want to go on a Caribbean vacation. The sidekicks are also unusual and interesting. It is a bit of slapstick to this comical romance, but it is done with such a deft hand that I really d ...more
Juli Flynn’s latest responsibility is to scatter her Uncle Frank’s ashes in the Virgin Islands, a task she’s really not eager to perform. She has ...more
Şu son bir kaç aydır bu denli eğlenceli kitaplara hasret kalmıştım. Kitabı 'Minik Bir Düş' blogunun sahibinin tavsiyesi üzerine okudum ve iyi ki de okumuşum diyorum. Okurken, sürekli olarak yüzümde aptal bir sırıtış ile okudum desem yalan olmaz. Hele öyle bir yerler vardı ki gece vakti kahkahalarım komşular tarafından duyulmasın diye suratıma yastık kapatmak zorunda kaldım. Bazı yerlerde ise geç kaldım maalesef. :)

Tawna Fenske'ın yazdığı Dalgalar Hep Aşk Getirse okundu, bitti. Aslında kitaba başlarken pek de bir beklentim yoktu fakat beni şaşırttı. Yazarın kalemini beğendim. Kabul aşırı sınırlarda yazmış. Saçma yerler bir dünya fakat öyle bir dille yazmış ki kahkahalarla okuyorsun. Şuan iyi ki almış, okumuşum diyorum. :)):)) Çevirisini de beğendim. Daha ne olsun ? Kitabı kesinlikle tavsiye ederim !
The bad thing is running into books like these.
Alex has been cheated out of his pension. He and his friends devise a way to get what was taken from them by a little piracy on the high seas.
Juli has to spread her uncle's ashes at sea. Only she winds up on a ship other than the one she chartered.
Full of silly characters, unbelievable situations and loads of "fun" coincidences the humor in thi ...more

When Juli accidentally stows away on Alex's ship, she has twenty-four hours to prove she belongs with Alex's ragtag crew and can help with the heist, if she can overcome her seasickness and use ...more

Like the kind of hilarity that would result if Tina Fey's off-the-wall descriptions of life joined forces with Chelsea Handler's awkward sexuality and the two wrote a book about white-collar-employees turning into a band of pirates.
Sounds too good to be true? Well it isn't.
The female MC is named Juli and she's a thirty-seven year old woman who's had more careers than my entire graduating class - combined. Her family thinks she needs to settle d ...more
Öncelikle kitabımız bir korsan hikayesi. Bu zamanda korsan mı kalmış derseniz bizim acemi korsanlara bir göz atın derim kesinlikle bayılacaksınız. Cody hariç hepsi (4 kişiler) 40 yaş üstü emeklilikleri gelmiş ama çalışt ...more
I can't quite pinpoint why this one didn't work for me. It might have been that the humor was a little heavy-handed at times (see: Juli's mother's jello salad). It might hav ...more
And it really is a breezy, little read--full of ludicrous action, quirky characters, and enough sexual tension to choke Don Juan. Sure, it gets a little silly in parts, but that's half the fun. And boy, doe ...more
I typically don't read humorous romance books because my sense of humor is very dry and sharp and I tend not to think that the same things are funny as everyone else does. I purchased and read this book because I read Tawna's blog and I wanted ...more
I was thrilled to find that I absolutely loved this book! I started reading and completely lost track of time until my husband came home to find me laughing on the sofa.
Obviously my laughter intrigued him, since he grabbed it as soon as I finished, eager to find out what was so funny for himself! :-)
Plus, she used " wench" and " nefarious" - two of my favorite words to write.
Yes, it's romance, but guys, trust me you will enjoy this.
This was a fantastic read. Fun and sexy and silly. Who can resist a pirate? Even if he is a 40 something former executive. Juli and Alex and the rest of the gang are wonderful characters. Great first book by Fenske. Can't wait for the next one!
This one was cute and extremely witty at times; however it got to being waaay too over the top and ridiculous! What with the piracy, fbi, mobsters:... It was soooo unrealistic!! Like a silly TV comedy... Every character (except Alex) was just too much ! Too unrealistic, too over the top , too - everything! Phyllis - too bodybuildery and clueless; Cody - too freakishly into cooking...all the time!!; Juli - too weird and crazy - carrying her dead uncle around, eating 4 portions per meal yet b ...more
