Story Overview:
Alice Shepard needs one thing: a date for her sister's wedding. And not just any date. A hunk who will make her fiancé rue the day he left her for her best friend. Her drop-dead gorgeous neighbor fits the bill—even if he is a bit quirky and never comes out during the day—and Alice has downed just enough appletinis to ask him. But she makes it quite clear that there will be no funny business. 

Spending a week on a cruise ship full of humans while sleeping close to his sexy next-door neighbor sounds like a helluva bad idea to vampire Noah Thorpe. But his friends need time to get him out of a shotgun wedding—a vampire bonding that will tie his fate to a female vampire he's never met. And Alice's offer comes at just the right time. 

What could possibly go wrong?

My Review:
I bought this book on a whim just because it sounded like it could really be fun....and yay....it totally was what I'd hoped it would be!

This is just a really well-written, fun, entertaining book. The majority of the book takes place on a cruise...it's a destination wedding for Alice's sister who's marrying her ex-fiance's brother. So yes, the ex she was with forever is going to be on the cruise too...with his new girlfriend, who also happens to be her ex-bestfriend. As a result, Alice is desperate not to go on this cruise alone.

Noah has been Alice's neighbor for five years. He's a bit reclusive, but always willing to give her a hand. He suddenly finds himself in need of a retreat. The vampire council is about to insist he bond with a female vampire. This is something they do with older vampires to ensure they maintain a will to live. 

There were several things I really liked about this book:
*Vampire on a cruise?? In this world, vampires can be in the sun, but it does cause them to become sick....truly like an allergic reaction, which is how Noah explains it. I like that he's willing to stand the sickness though to spend time with Alice. Even when he's feeling ill, he enjoys being in her company so much that he's willing to withstand the discomfort. I loved that.

*Both Noah and Alice have had a crush on each other for years. He's normally a recluse, but gets involved with neighborhood activities simply to spend time with her. 

*The evolution of Noah...I loved getting to watch him become more emotional and happy. This is a guy who doesn't reveal much about what he's feeling so getting to see his reactions through Alice was awesome especially since she gets such joy out of things like watching him laugh and smile. It was great and part of why I really loved the sunshine scenes so much.

*Kane's boys...I'm intrigued by these 4 men: Kane and his three sons. Three men that he's turned and they all have a bond. I can't wait to read more of the books, because I really think there's more to Kane's reasoning than what was let on during this book. 

*the sun imagery throughout the book...just a really neat little detail.

Like I said this was truly just a fun read. I liked it and DEFINITELY recommend it!
