Review of Making Waves

Making Waves
Tawna Fenske
Sourcebooks Casa
ISBN 9781402257216

   Julie has trouble fitting in; but she prefers to keep the reasons a secret. She hops on a boat in the Caribbean to dispose of her Uncle Franks ashes. Unbeknownst to her, she boards on the wrong boat and finds herself a stowaway  with some disgruntled corporate misfits. It turns out the one is her make believe "husband."
   Alex is a bit disgruntled because he has been kicked to the curb by an unscrupulous boss after twenty years of service. The last thing he needs is to be shackled to a make believe "wife" who is not normal and has secrets she is not willing to share. Of course, Alex has a few secrets of his own. The thing is, meeting Julie makes his life a lot more exhilarating.
   This is one of the most hilarious books I have read in a long time. Sometimes you just need a no nonsence, no brainer, chick book, to lighten up the mood. This is just the read. I have to tell you I have no laughed so hard reading a book in a long time. The main female Julie is absolutely hilarious. Alex is a brooder, with good reason; but at times you want to slap him silly. Even though the story is a crazy ride, it is well written. You have a bunch of misfit pirates on the high seas,  a crazy jock woman who has her hormones in a twist, romance in the air, and a pirate who is a gourmet cook. We mustn't forget the sex on the beach. There is a scene on the balcony that had me rolling on the floor. If you want a wacky and quirky summer read, I can't recommend this one enough.
   I wish to thank Sourcebooks for providing me with an ARC to review. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for the privilege of reading the book.

I give Making Waves 5 out of 5 stars
