As a dancer on a luxury cruise liner, Taffy has a dream job: earning tax-free money for something she’s passionate about, while not spending a cent on bed and board. Taffy, however, has a secret and the money is not coming in fast enough for her liking, especially when her focus turns away from money towards the steady, sexy and dark Ashton, whose ex-girlfriend shares Taffy’s crew cabin.
The pool boy, Ashton, is in reality the undercover heir to the shipping company's fortune. When an emerald pendant is stolen, Ashton has to discover the culprit before the company’s reputation is compromised. As much as he hates to admit it, Taffy is the prime suspect....
This was a fantastic, fast read and I enjoyed every second of it. Taffy is a dancer on a cruise ship trying to get herself out of financial trouble. Everyone stares when she dances and it’s her job to let the passangers know they’re having a good time. Only she is not having a very good time herself. Until she spot Ash watching her in the crowd. Now she only wants to dance for one set of eyes—his—and he is thrilled to let her because he feels like he could watch her forever.
But the path to true love is never easy and when Taffy is accused of a crime, Ashton has to investigate it.
This felt like an old fashioned romance to me. Ash is so in love with Taffy from the moment he spots her. He’s a kind person, a real life hero who any woman would love to meet on a cruise boat. Some of the reveals that take place at the end of the book went kind of fast for me and I would have liked a little more time with them. Still, it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book.
I highly recommend this book. I think you will fall in love with the characters as I did.
