Publisher's Summary

From, Lauren Rowe, the USA Today best-selling author of The Club Series and Ball Peen Hammer comes a sexy standalone romance: Captain.

It wasn't the way this kind of story was supposed to go...insta-love isn't supposed to turn into insta-hate. But that's exactly what happened when the hot-as-hell dreamboat I met in a bar turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag-player-douche looking for nothing but a little side action. Jerk. And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a "sociopath"? Asshole. And now, three months later, through a mind-blowing series of events I couldn't have predicted in a million years, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister in Hawaii and I've got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week. Okay, sure, I'll put on a happy face this week and act like I've never even met the jerk before - did I mention his sister is marrying my boss? - but that doesn't mean I'll like it. And it certainly doesn't mean I'll stop secretly hating the cocky bastard's guts. Because I do. I hate him. I really do. I just wish my brain would explain the situation to my body...because every time he flashes that panty-melting smile at me, it takes all my self-restraint not to jump the bastard's hot-as-f--k bones.

For fans of Ball Peen Hammer and The Club Series, please note Captain features Ryan Morgan and takes place one year before the events of Ball Peen Hammer. It also includes characters from both Ball Peen Hammer and The Club Series, though Captain is a complete standalone.

    "FASTEN YR SEAT BELTS..THIS CAPTAIN'S FLYING HIGH"

    OK.. so now that you've been seduced by the cover, been tempted by the synopsis or maybe you were drawn by the author's name alone. Whatever the reason, let me assure you, this story lives up to expectations, delivers a plot that has humor, heart and heat.. all set within the backdrop of a loving group of family and friends. And it centres on two unforgettable characters who fall instantly in lust, and maybe love, with each other.. but thankfully it takes a wee while longer to clear up wrong misconceptions, crazy misunderstandings and unnecessary misgivings. I say thankfully because I would've been robbed of all the vibes.. the flirtatious witty banter, the butterflies, the chills and thrills, the goosebumps, the deliciously hot sexcapades, the swoonworthy sentiments and the feel-good happy ending. Everything was perfectly written because this author knows how to bring you into a story, knows how to capture your attention from the get go, knows what you're looking for and delivers it in spades.

    Worth a credit? Oh boy YES.. and, not only does Lauren Rowe know how to write an awesome rom/com, she is very talented when it comes to narration too so, together with the sexy voice of John Lane, they brought this dual POV storyline to life, gave it wings and made it soar high above a lot of other listens in this genre. So prepare to smile, to swoon, to laugh, to get frustrated, to drool, to fall in love.. and to dream.

    Story
    "Captain"

    The story was good. It was laugh out loud funny at times. However, my biggest problem with this story was with the narrators. When I was deciding if I should select this book, I noticed that the author was reading for the main female character. I have never listened to an erotica romance story where the author had read her own work. My first thought was not to purchase this book for that reason. I finally decided to give the book a chance. Well, I should have followed my first mind.

    Lauren Rowe (the author) over-acted most of the story. It is not my intent to be mean spirited, just honest. Lauren Rowe is clearly a good writer but the book would have been a better listen if a proven professional narrator had read & act out the story. The male narrator, John Lane, was a lot better. His reading of the male character was credible the majority of the time. There were times, however, where he over-acted (and sometimes under-acted) his characters scenes

    I gave the story 4 stars, the narrators 2 stars & overall a 3 star rating.

    Would I recommend this book? Not really. I do believe however, that everyone should make up their own minds.

    Story
    "Was hoping for a smart romance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love the Morgans, don't get me wrong, but the female lead wasn't the smartest tool in the shed. Be that as it may, this was a great fun story. I would recommend, but only to those who are looking for cute and crazy fun who doesn't mind an annoying female lead.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Ryan. He's sweet and all around good guy. Not sure if I would've been as patient with f in the story. I would've given up on her and moved on to someone else.


    What about Lauren Rowe and John Lane ’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Lane's performance was, and always is perfect. The author didn't do a bad job at all.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The powerpoint presentations were very fun to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    My only gripe with Captain is that the female character tended to jump to too many conclusions, (to the point where I'm convinced she's just not very smart or unable to learn from her mistakes.) and was wishy washy with her feelings for Ryan. So many authors do this, and it's tiresome.

    Everything else in this book was pure gold.

    "Blah"

    I love romance, this just didn't do it for me. I'm not sure if it was the way the audiobook was performed or the female voice in itself. I loved the epilogue, and I slightly smiled a little throughout the book, but I didn't connect with the characters. I don't think this is a bad story, it just wasn't the type that I am interested in. I usually listen to books on 1.25 speed, this one I listened too on 1.5 and still skipped chapters.

    "Hope other narrator"

    Maybe next time the heroine narrator could be different. It was little bit annoying. How great is T-Rod but the female voice was a blah.

    "Lauren has done it again!"

    I've had countless "Book Boyfriends" over the years, but the Morgan's are the ultimate "Book Family"! I love the endless nicknames, banter and obvious love they share. Your narration just adds to the overall lore of your stories.

    "LOVED IT SO MUCH!! MY NEW FAVE!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Captain to be better than the print version?

    Always is, but I only listened!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ryan first...then Tessa...and of course Peenie!! lol I love all the Morgans..and Tessa will fit right in!!


    What about Lauren Rowe and John Lane ’s performance did you like?

    They nailed it...loved it!!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Oh this would make a great movie! Total Rom Com!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED THIS SOOOOO MUCH! I didn't think I could love a Lauren Rowe book more than I love Pall Peen Hammer..but I think I did....Tessa and Ryan meet under very odd circumstances and it was just kismet!! They lose track of each other because Tessa was using a fake name when they met..but by chance she works for Ryan's sisters fiance....and they meet up again in Hawaii for the wedding...Tessa was super hard on Ryan.they almost did not make it..but Ryan would not give up..and they get a very happy and swoon worthy ending!!! I WANT TO BE A MORGAN!!!! LOL

    THIS WAS FABULOUS...JUST ADD TO YOUR CART AND ONE CLICK IT NOW....YOU WONT REGRET IT!!!!!

    "Overall it was good but "

    I wanted to strangle Josh and Jonah! WTF? That was a real douche move & while I get the reason without talking to Cap..they were wrong

    I thought Josh was a bit of a hypocrite to thank Captain during the reception after totally pooh pooping on him

    it was also a bit cheesy

    "Took a while to finish"

    This is a book for those who like a little story between the sex scenes. I happen to prefer a good story. I spent a lot of time fast forwarding through the sex scenes (FYI having an Echo Dot aids in this.) The characters are fine, but I had a hard time buying into some of the things they did, especially Tessa.
