Sally Kent loves the sea, so when her younger brother refuses to report for duty, she takes the chance to wear a uniform. The problem is, how to hide her woman curves, specially from Lieutenant David Colyear.

I really liked Sally, she was strong, decided and never accepted 'no' for an answer. It was a little bit unbelievable how she could hide herself from everyone, but I enjoyed her relationship with Col. They were hot and passionate, and even when Col took a difficult decision to allow her on the ship, he was still protective but not exasperating.

But I didn't enjoy much the explanations and descriptions of the life on the ship, it was too tedious for me and it made me want to leave the book many times. That's the main reason why I didn't love it.

Overall, I liked Elizabeth Essex's writing and enjoyed Sally's and Col's relationship, so the Reckless Brides series is definitely recommended if you want to read an historical romance series.
