Verdict: I loved the story. I thought it was fun and flirty and held a lot of suspense without being scary. BUT, I also found a lot of the happenings extremely convenient. Like how she runs into Samuel, and how they just so happen to find shelter any time they need it. But, that's nothing when you have a hard time not thinking about the story while you're away from the book, right? The writing was good. The characters were well-researched and well-plotted. The plot was swift, which we all know keeps me happy. The cover though. The cover does not accurately portray the story. Not one bit. So, please please please, don't judge it by its cover.
Location: San Francisco and Australia
Favorite Character: Oscar. Oh. My. Gosh. Oscar. Hands down. What's not to love about a sexy first mate who saves lives left and right? *swoon*
Would Change: some of the more convenient and contrived plot points as referenced in the Verdict.
Favorite Line: "This time, I must have needed to row to you." pg. 321, hardcover
Good for Monster? Nope. Too romancey for his tastes.
People Who Will Like This: pirates and their wenches, tomboys, hikers, and people who appreciate a strong female lead
People Who Won't Like This: straight up adventure fans who don't like their girls to think too much, girly girls who sit in townhouses and attend balls, Navy Wives.
