Fiction. Romance. HTML:

When the boat's a rockin', don't come knockin'!

Out-and-proud travel writer Dan Taylor can't steer a boat to save his life, but that doesn't stop him from accepting an assignment to write up a narrowboat holiday. Instead of a change of pace from city life, though, the canal seems dull as ditchwater. Until he crashes into the boat of a half-naked, tattooed, pierced man whose rugged, penniless appearance is at odds with a posh accent.

Still smarting from past betrayal, Robin Hamilton's "closet" is his narrowboat, his refuge from outrageous, provocative men like Dan. Yet he can't seem to stop himself from rescuing the hopelessly out-of-place city boy from one scrape after another. Until he finds himself giving in to reluctant attraction, even considering a brief, harmless fling.

After all, in less than a week, Dan's going back to his London diet of casual hook-ups and friends with benefits.

Determined not to fall in love, both men dive into one week of indulgence...only to find themselves drawn deep into an undertow of escalating intimacy and emotional intensity. Troubled waters neither of them expected...or wanted.

Warning: Contains one lovable tart, one posh boy gone feral, rough sex, alfresco sex, vile strawberry-flavoured condoms, intimate body piercings, red thermal long-johns, erotic woodchopping, an errant cat, a few colourful characters you wouldn't touch with a bargepole, and plenty of messing about on the river.

I don't give five stars out very much. In order to earn them a book needs to have five things.

1. It's so entertaining I can't wait to get back to it. Check
2. It's a great story, one I want to share. Check
3. It's told by a great story teller (you'd be surprised how many great stories are poorly told). Check.
4. I learned something new about the world and about how others live. Check.
5. The characters are well rounded and I'll miss them. Check.

This is truly a love story and I'll be looking for more by Josephine Myles.



I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. ( )

There were parts that I really enjoyed, but I just couldn't get into it enough to finish it off. ( )

It is funny, but recently in the Goodread groups, there has been discussion on what is considered "cheating" and does it affect how you feel about the characters and author. I have found that just by coincidence, recent books have dealt with cheating in one form or other.


In this book, we have someone who is what we might call a play-boy (or so called slut), Dan, who is not one for commitment. He runs into Robin, literally and the fun ensues. Is Dan capable of being in a serious monogamous relationship?

I do not want to get into spoilers here, but if you are hard-core against any type of cheating, emotional or physical, this book is not for you. I however, was not bothered by it; to me it showed the character growth by the end of the book.

What did annoy me a bit (in both leads) was the avoidance of communication. Which, I am sure not all relationships have great communication, but at times it felt like the author just trying to put conflict into the story.

Overall, not a bad book or story. I did enjoy getting up on my Brit slang. :) Thank God for Shaun of the Dead, I actually could hear the accents in my head as I was reading this. ( )
