About the book: Lily is free. Free from home. Free from work and everything she built the last eight years. And she’s scared to death. With her half of the Etsy business sold, Lily is persuaded by Maddie to take advantage of her windfall and go on a cruise around Italy, explore new possibilities, and meet new people, especially the male kind. Feeling as unstable as the waves rolling beneath the ship, Lily is reluctant to agree to a romantic flirtation, even with a man as intriguing as Zander.
The cruise is supposed to be a fresh start for Zander and an opportunity to expand his freelance photography business. It also marks the one year anniversary of his fiancé’s death. All he’s interested in gaining from the experience is a larger portfolio, but finds himself irresistibly drawn to Lily, who looks nearly as lost as he feels.
A cruise ship romance couldn’t possibly last, and yet how can Lily and Zander resist falling in love in the most romantic country on earth?
My review: This has been such a fun series! I'm enjoying traveling the world through the eyes of these characters.
I really liked Lily in this one. I liked that she was a little bit vulnerable about the way she had acted when she met Zander the day before their cruise. And then when he ends up on their cruise and they're constantly thrown together that creates a fun twist to the story.
I liked Zander too. He had true motivations, I really liked that he was able to open himself up to Lily and let her see the real him. I wished that we could have seen part of the story through his eyes, but I still really liked him.
I loved the sights and feels of Italy in this one. I'm sure there are tons of these places I'll never see myself, but I almost felt like I was there enjoying the gelato with Lily and Zander.
I didn't want to put this one down and have my trip to Italy end, but that's what always happens, no matter how much I don't want it to!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
