I went out to dinner the other night. In the foyer of the restaurant was a brown paper bag that said FREE BOOKS, I scurried over and got this one. There were only three books left, which just reminded me that there are so many "book-aholics" out there. It made me smile.

Going on a cruise as part of your mission, what more could an agent want? This agent would prefer not to be attracted to the body he is supposed to be protecting.

SEAL Ford McKay has been assigned to watch over Carolina "Carly" Sullivan and her best friend Daphne after some threats are made against Daphne's father. Carly just happens to be a photographer/videographer shooting a campaign for the cruise line and needs a male model ASAP since her scheduled model isn't as in shape as his photographs

Carly Sullivan is a world renowned photographer and cinematographer with a huge problem. She's shooting what she is sure will be a fantastic commercial for a cruise ship company (why do all of Christina Skye's novels take place on or have a major part to play on a cruise ship).

Problem? The actor they hired is not camera-worthy. So she needs to find a fill in ... a sexy fill in.

Ford McKay was just looking for a little R&R from his SEAL days. He wasn't looking to become an actor ... or start

Love Overboard is a fun, sexy, RS light read. It is about a SEAL who is ordered to protect the adopted daughter of the head of a small Caribbean island. Carly is a TV commercial director who is finally getting a shot at doing something she can be proud of, a cruise ship commercial. Ford McKay is ordered to watch her because of death threats. McKay is not happy about the babysitting duty. The actor Carly is supposed to use turns out to be unacceptable and Carly is on the hunt on the ship for a re ...more

(I changed my rating from a 4 to a 3.5 because it did have a hard time getting started.) This is the second in a series and a pretty good book. It started off a little slow but caught up with itself by the end. This is a story about a young lady named Carly Sullivan who was a great photographer and here she was on a cruise ship doing a commercial for the cruise line. Unfortunately, the guy that the company chose for the close ups was not exactly what they thought he was and she was left looking ...more

Carly is a photographer working on an ad campaign for a cruise line. Ford McKay is a Navy SEAL on assignment--to protect Carly, but she doesn't know that when she picks him as the perfect guy for her commercials. Everything is going well...until Carly really does need protection, but she doesn't want McKay to protect her...

This is the second Christina Skye book I've read. It is better than the last with only a couple of things that bugged me. Skye was off on her timing a little near the end, but

I read Going Overboard by Christina Skye and it totally fell flat for me. Ugh. Sometimes I wish I had the propensity to DNF a book, but I very rarely do. Especially by an author I usually enjoy, which Skye is. I just didn't CARE about this book at all. The characters did nothing for me, even the Navy SEAL hero. The "suspense" wasn't really suspense because you knew what was going on from the beginning. I really wanted to like this book, but no.

it was okay. but the female character was getting on my nerves again. Christina has a problem of creating too much of a good thing. again this femal character ws a little bit too head strong for my taste. and the guy, he got on my nerves in the last chapter. i can understand why he did it, but still you don't push the one you love away.

Loved this!!! Ford McKay is super mysterious and dangerously hot and Carly is strong, beautiful, independent and fiercely loyal. They are a wonderful pair. The story was full of excitement and I was entertained the whole way through. I cannot wait to read the next one!!

A pesar de no ser un libro para tirar cohetes, es muy ameno de leer. La única pega, para mi gusto, es que la trama principal del libro no aparece, o no cobra verdadera importancia, hasta más de la mitad del libro.
Este es de los libros que califico yo "para pasar el rato". =D

A great read, quick and adventurous. I loved all the characters and believed their actions. There were a couple places where poor editing made me have to do a re-read but I got over it. Would love to read more stories about the secondary stars - especially IZZY!
Excellent read. I would love to see what happens next, but I am completely satisfied with how this book ended. I was on the edge of my seat in suspense the whole time. I loved all of the characters and I liked that the lead female was more independent than the damsel in distress.

I love this series by Christina Skye. Each story stands on it's own but when reading them all, the story is only enhanced. These are fast paced and quite edgy. In my opinion, these stories are for adult readers.

Highly recommended.

this one is a good read.. great on all the details but a little short on the romance side... the plots interesting and you are left wanting more... hope the others in the series are good enough.

P.S. It's my 1001 read :) :D

Cute. That's the first adjective that comes to mind. It wasn't compelling by any stretch of the imagination, but the characters were nice and the story was a little different, including both romance and a bit of mystery. I'll probably read other books in the Navy SEALS series by this author.

Didn't end up finishing this book. I couldn't get into it. Perhaps I'll give this author another shot some other time. Plot seemed a little thin and dialogue a little contrived.

I was enjoying the premise behind this book, but it took a really long time to get to the point and then it just ended and it didn't make sense to me.

This was really quite good. Lots of energy. There was romance but also plenty of action. Navy SEALs were involved. Nuff said! ;)

This was a fun slightly quirky read. A commercial photographer meets a Navy SEAL aboard a cruise ship...miscommunications ensue. Sit back and watch the sparks fly =)
