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

Burke Matthews is accustomed to salvaging wrecked water vehicles; it is what his team does best. However, rescuing cruise ship survivor Gabriel Bergeron develops into an additional benefit that Burke can’t resist.

Moby's Dick is a charming budding romance story, complete with a scorned ex-lover in the part of the scoundrel. The setting is small coastal town in Italy. The plot gives an overview of the procedures involved in salvaging disabled ships. The characters are creditable.

3.5 star review by Tidal

I was drawn to this book for two reasons, the cover and the title. When I am sitting on the fence about a book, I must admit the cover will sway me. The cover of this book is definitely compelling but when I read the book, the picture my mind painted was quite different from the one on the cover and that was not a bad thing, because the cover didn’t match the story at all! The title now is another thing, it promised something and it did deliver, but it gave much more than

In 'Moby's Dick' by A.J. Llewellyn and D. J. Manly, Burke Matthews seemingly has it all. He's handsome, successful, wealthy, and has a great deal of expertise in his job as captain of a salvage vessel. He's respected and admired by his crew, travels all over the world seeing beautiful places and meeting interesting people. But he's restless and wonders if things are going so well, then why is he so empty and lonely? Burke is determined to find out and remedy the situation. After saving countless ...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.
On the romance
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!

A.J. Llewellyn lives in California, but dreams of living in Hawaii. Frequent trips to all the islands, bags of Kona coffee in the fridge and a healthy collection of Hawaiian records keep this writer refueled.

A.J’s passion for the islands led to writing a play about the last ruling monarch of Hawaii, Queen Lili’uokalani as well as a non-erotic novel about the overthrow of her kingdom written in dia
