This book is an interesting mixture between lighthearted humor (I mean, just look at the title!) and a somewhat more detailed look at the marine salvage business than most of us have had so far. That balance between the main characters having fun despite some of the adversity around them is quite delicate, and I bet it was not easy to achieve when writing the story.

Burke is a tough guy in a very competitive business. He runs a marine salvage business and he is very hands-on, so he gets to see th...more
2.5 Stars. The book started off great for me and took a nose dive about 2/3 into it. Burke meets and falls in love with Gabriel within a week, which is fine, if he hadn't just fucked his ex a couple of days before and he didn't go and fuck a random stranger from a bar the day after the first time he has sex with Gabriel. It just soured the book for me.
A different read to what I was expecting. From the title I was expecting full out comedy, and whilst bits were funny, it wasn't a comedy. However, I did quite like it.
The main story was about the marine salvage, and being a sea side dweller, this did interest me and whilst it wasn't pleasant, I liked that the authors did not go with the 'save everyone' answer. The descriptions of bodies who had been missing for a long time felt very authentic to me - and not for the too squeamish.

I liked this one. I felt the tension from the first page when Burke is circling the ship wondering if there are survivors and the knowledge things like this happen. It's an exciting story and the relationship is fun. I like Burke and Gabriel. And the ship's cat!
