Publisher's summary

Romance writer Mona Rossi's book sales are slipping. She needs new ideas and fast! Her vampire love, Fausto Silvius is a doctor aboard the Romanza, a luxury cruise ship. Holding a "Motion on the Ocean" writer's cruise sounds like a great idea. What better way to combine a career boost with romance?
 

But they soon discover hunters on board who give chase to Fausto and his fellow vampires. While he longs to bring Mona into his world, how can he convince her to join him with fringe lunatics on the hunt? In the prime of her life she's not sticking her neck out for a shot at eternity.

Just right for a listen on a beach

Five years after its original release in print, A Bloody Good Cruise by best-selling author Diana Rubino is available now in audiobook format and although Romance isn’t my favorite genre, I spent this Weekend listening to this one, in order to bring you all the promised review.

The story follows Mona Rossi, a young and very attractive Romance writer as she embarks on the voyage of her life on the beautiful and luxurious cruise ship Romanza. Looking for new ideas for a future novel, as current sales aren’t great, and hoping to touch bases with the man she is in love with. Mona finds herself pulled into a world filled with love, sex, intrigue and deadly perils, on a cruise ship that hides secrets and dangers.

There are vampires, a lot of romance, a group of vampire hunters, the promise of everlasting life, if the hunters don’t get you first, and one or two love stories, of course.

The author’s writing style is fluid, easy to follow, funny and her descriptions for the characters and the world that surrounds them is vivid and well done.

The audiobook version of A Bloody Good Cruise is performed by Anthony Lee and he does his best with the matterial provided. In my humble opinion, this audiobook should have been narrated by a female narrator, as it is customary with stories that have the main protagonist a woman, but that’s just me beeing strict and obtuse, probably.

Anthony Lee brings all the characters to life with different voices and accents, while at the same time reading the story in his strong and serious voice. I can surely see him casting for a Thriller or a Sci-Fi audiobook, but he did as much as can be expected of him with this Romance story.

If you are into Romance books, vampires and escapes on the blue waters, A Bloody Good Cruise might just be the audiobook to take with you on the beach, or why not, on a cruise…

I post reviews at the author / narrator / publisher’s request. Get in touch with me for more details. If you like this review please vote Helpful below and find more of them here on Audible and on theAudiobookBlog dot com.

Sound quality issues. Story fun and light.

I very much like the characters in all their glory, failure, striptease, hunting, turning, and all. I could really visualize Mona as Anne Hathaway. Many of the other character came to life just by the things that they were doing or trying to do. And having a dream cast list to match the various characters to just made things happen clearer while listening to the audio.
Now on to the audio. The audio was a bit echoie. The narrator was good, but it was the sound quality that detracted from the story and the narration.

Dream Cast from author...
Anne Hathaway as Mona Rossi
Vincent Irizarry as Fausto Silvius
Gwen Stefani as Teresa “Tessie” Lionetti
James Franco as Quintus Silvius
Michelle Pfeiffer as Zanna Jones
Michael Caine as Royal Jones

Bloody Cruise

This is a first for me with this author. I am so glad I gave this a listen. The action and suspense of this paranormal romance kept you glued to your earbuds. Vampires, Romance and a cruise, what's not to love. Anthony Lee did a great job also.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
