I love this yacht world! 

Ollie and Nina were such fun characters in Love, List and Fancy Ships.

But we didn’t know their whole intense story! And I can’t even tell you any of it cause it was fun having the slow reveal from when they met to present day.

Loved being back with the Chief Stew and the Chef.

And we got to continue more of Jo and Alex romance as they planned their wedding.

Their enemies to lovers, secret love on the yacht was no secret to anyone but there were so many tender moments and Ollie was all in. It was Nina and her trust issues with trusting anyone with her future or happiness cause of what happened when she was in her teens.

This one had so many family conflicts that played into the relationship issues and having to self reflect when that is so hard and painful was the first step.

I loved the end when she finally visualized her happy ending that was the sweetest picture and it sounded perfect!

❓ Have you ever been on a yacht or chartered boat/ship?

I don’t think I’ve been on a yacht but I’ve been on a catamaran bay cruise and booze cruises in Oahu (they probably aren’t called that).

Thank you berkleyromance and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.


They have a second chance at love, but there are some rough seas ahead in the new contemporary romance from the acclaimed author of Love, Lists, and Fancy Ships.

Commitment-phobe Nina Lejeune lives by two rules:
1. Always have fun.
2. Don’t rely on anyone but yourself.
The first rule is easy; the second, she’s only broken once.

Ten years after fleeing home, Nina is the chief stewardess on the super yacht Serendipity, single by choice, and perfectly content with how life has turned out.

But Nina’s ex-coworker and old flame, Irish chef Ollie Dunne, isn’t so happy with the status quo. One year after leaving yachting, he’s returned as the Serendipity’s chef with an ultimatum: if Nina continues to deny she’s in love with him by the end of this charter season, he’ll go back to Ireland for good.

Nina and Ollie’s shared secret from their past threatens to shipwreck not only their relationship, but the entire boat. But as their connection grows amidst chaotic guests and crew drama, could there be smooth sailing in their future?
