So I decided to review this book for a few different reasons. One was because of the cover – it just spoke to me. Another was because of the genre. While I love me some romance, I also like the naughty side of it too. Yeah, yea, I am that person :) – Third being it was suggested to me by a friend. We all know me and taking people up on their suggestions!

We begin with Jody joining her friends for a girl's cruise. She's a single mom, and right away you are rooting for her to have the time of her life. And then it happens, Tall, Dark, and Handsome shows up right out of the gate and saves her shoe. Perfect, right?

Immediately we're curious about Taggart Keith. He's got that killer smile and instantly, Jody is caught up in all that pretty. But, she's not the kind of girl th

I really enjoyed this book. I had the author mixed up with another author, and I though that this book was a New Adult book. Sail Away with Me is not a New Adult book, it's an Contemporary Romance book.

Jody goes on a cruise with her friends, Cricket, Doreen, and Lauren. Taggart and Jody meet on the cruise ship. The scene where they meet is funny. She is relocated to start anything more than a cruise ship fling. Taggart seems very sweet and tries to convince Jody he is worth a relationship. Tagg

Originally published at Reading Reality

When rich, successful and sinfully handsome author Taggart Keith rescues Jody Carter from an epic shoe disaster in the opening scene of Sail Away With Me, it sets both the reader and Jody, up for a delicious (not to mention absolutely blistering hot) shipboard romance with Taggart cast as the Prince Charming and Jody playing Cinderella.

Except that soccer-mom Jody isn’t just a soccer-mom, and Taggart is both more and less than a Prince, no matter how charmin

I was at first drawn to this book for the superficial reason of the heroine having the same name as me. By reading it though I found an entertaining and super steamy read, realistic in its depictions of romance for a single mother trying to juggle many roles and the ups and downs of a supportive group of friends. This story took us from the exotic locations visited during a cruise to the homey feeling of small town America and how that affects a woman's actions in the dance of love.

Sail Away With Me is a light, sweet and engaging read with charismatic characters who kept me engaged from beginning to end.

Jody Carter is very recently divorced and is slowly trying to find her way in the new world that she has found herself in. She is trying to find the right balance between being a mother and an artist with a burgeoning career. She definitely has her priorities in line, but often times, like so many women, she neglects her wants and needs while taking care of others. Her frie

I was given the ARC of Sail Away With Me in exchange for an honest review. When I read the synopsis for the story, I was very much intrigued with the concept of a shipboard romance.

Still overcoming the fact that her marriage failed, she is convinced by her three friends that she needs to take a holiday with them and put that all behind her.

I was given Sail Away With Me by Kate Deveaux for an honest review for Swoon Worthy Books. I am going to be honest I had never heard of this author before, but I can say that she has a new book fan in me. I loved her writing style. She captured my heart with this wonderful read. Truly this is a romance. You see the good and the bad in the characters; there are times when you have to ask yourself is the character crazy for doing this. This is truly what I love about romance.

*Sigh*. Sail Away with Me is such an entrancing romance. I absolutely love a story where everything seems to work out for everyone involved. What better place than a cruise ship to find true love. Thank goodness I'm getting on a cruise ship in less than a week, or I think I might have died of jealousy! Ms. Deveaux has created two great characters and written them into a wonderful love story.

Jody is on a cruise with three of her girlfriends in an attempt to have some fun 6 months after her divorce is finalized. She has a 12 year old son, and has no thoughts of being in another relationship. At the beginning of the cruise she has a run-in with celebrity author Taggart Keith, who will be doing some lectures on the cruise about his latest best-selling self-help book. Taggart is very attractive, very smooth, and quickly pursues Jody who finds she can't resist him, nor does she want to. ...more

SAIL AWAY WITH ME by Kate Deveaux is a romance that starts with the cruise but doesn't end there. It goes way beyond falling in love onboard.

Jody is recently divorced and on a cruise with her three best friends that one of them won in a promotion. First thing she does is nearly lose her shoe. Thankfully a handy beefcake Prince Charming bringers her show back to her...
"Whose is this?" holding the petite sandal high in his hand, parting the crowd searching for the owner of the shoe.

I received an e-galley of Sail Away with Me as part of the blog tour for an honest review.

One of the reasons I wanted to read this book was because it is centered around a cruise. And who doesn't love cruises? From the very beginning the attraction between Jody and Tag is right on the surface. It didn't take too long before I was laughing at the whole group. Jody and Tag have some pretty hot moments quickly, but there's some tension that carries through the book.

From the very beginning it was a pure delight.

The book follows the story of Jody Carter who went on the cruise with her friends to don´t think about men and have fun. But not thinking about men didn´t last long because he came into the picture.

Taggart Keith knows what he wants and it is Jody and he goes after her

I was underwhelmed and frankly, bored by this pedestrian romance. I found Taggart to be underdeveloped and mildly creepy. While Jody was a nice enough heroine, she exhibited cowardice towards her friends and in dealing with her budding relationship that was difficult to rally behind.

There were some sexy hot spots in the book that piqued my interest.  Unfortunately at times, however, during those same steamy bits, the author's descriptions would be so odd that I'd be thrown from the sce

This is the kind of book you end with a huge smile on your face! I loved the story. I thought I just knew how the plot would be played out, but I kept finding myself surprised after each little twist.

Truly a great read. I loved the characters and the bits of humor with each. Each character bringing the story to life a little more with there own stories and personalities. I loved the different points of view and how well the story flowed for each to the next.

I was first drawn to this book by the colourful cover. That wonderful expression of colour continued inside with the interesting descriptions and humour filled conversations between the group of friends and even the more intimate situations between Jody and Taggert. My favourite scene was the shoe flinging moment when they were waiting to board the boat. Really funny. This is a sweet story of woman getting her confidence back after a divorce and worthy of a couple hours of your reading time.

I was immediately drawn by the synopsis of a divorcee going on a cruise. Sail Away With Me is the story of Jody who is going on this cruise with some of her friends for some fun in the sun. It turns into that and so much more!

While on the cruise she meets the very attractive Taggart Keith. A romance blossoms and it is quite sweet with just the right amount of spice. If someone is a fan of romance novels with adult characters that are very realistic then Sail Away With Me is the book for you!
