I really enjoyed this book. There was a lot of sex in the book, which I was somewhat embrassed to read on the train, but unless someone was reading over my shoulder, I don't think that anyone knew! Lots going on and kept me entertained.

Being an aficionado of cruising I gravitate to stories that feature cruise ships. This story starts out in Albany, NY where our heroine Crissy is lamenting the lack of excitement and romance in her life. One of Crissy's clients convinces her that romance waits on the high seas and after the devastating effects of a one night stand Crissy decides to take a cruise. Crissy chooses a wonderful cruise - a month-long trans-Atlantic crossing. She is looking to see part of the world outside of Albany an ...more

I love this author and this book. Between the setting being mostly on a cruise ship (which I happen to love) and it being a romantic book I was instantly hooked, not to mention the suspense in the book as well. I really appreciated how this book made sure to point out that Crissy was like any other girl and yet she was able to do amazing things, plan out her own life, and find love. The twist with the suspense in the book was amazing and really kept you on your toes. I feel as though the compani ...more

Not much of a plot, pretty trashy. She uses words that "good" authors use, but not in the way that makes the reading flow better, just in a way that makes it seem like she's a good writer (to an idiot). I bet she wore the keyboard out doing thesaurus checks while writing this book. Even the trashy sex scenes were just that - trashy and certainly not romantic. The only reason I finished it is because it was easy to skip over a lot of the text and it was fairly quick to "read."

Don't bother reading

At first I was hesitant to read the book, but after staring it I was quickly caught up. Of course that only lasted for less than a hundred pages. The dialogue could do with some improvement. EVERY person solely commented on how beautiful Crissy is. Wouldn't she want to e valued for something more. Also Jenny was a horrible friend. How did Crissy not see it
Anyway I'm glad that she was happy at the en though

This book is a slutty piece of crap, and the author should be ashamed of herself! I got to page 144 and couldn't go any further. There isn't one character in this book with any redeeming qualities! If no plot, shallow characters and bed-hopping is what constitutes a book for you, then, "have at it!"

Dreamboat was a good read. It is a story about 2 friends who go on a cruise to find some romance in their lives. And they do, just in different ways. There were several little plots within the book including some suspense.

Jenny was a little disturbing to me and I liked Crissy she was a very sweet person and I think she sort of reminds me of myself, a little

It was a pretty good story. It was just kind of weird how descriptive some parts were in what the main character was doing. I did enjoy reading the book.

Fun brain candy. The heroine is an Asian-American which is rare in a romance. This is a lovely book for summer vacation.

Много ми хареса, в нея има всичко - любов, драма, завист и най - важното щастлив край.

My MIL gave me this book after she read it. I'm not usually a romance novel kind of girl, but I liked it. It was a quick fun read.

I would have enjoyed it more if there hadn't been so much smut in it.

I read this out of nostalgia for our cruise to Greece, and the plot was kind of interesting, but it was very poorly written
