⭐⭐⭐3.5 but Rounding up to 4⭐⭐⭐



I LOVED the first fifty percent of the book and if it continued that funny vibe throughout the book, it would've been a 5 but still I liked a great deal.

PROS:

⭐ The idea: A vacation in an Galapagos cruise, I mean which romcom lover won't love it?

⭐ The characters: I liked both the main leads: Greame, especially, he came off sweet to me from the very start. Henley was nice but got angry quite fast in situations.

⭐The funny scenes: A lot of scenes were embarrassment and I mean, you gotta have them in fluffy romances and the ones in this book were funny as hell.

CONS:

⚫ The ending was flat. I needed something more.

⚫The second half wasn't as funny as the first one, good but that great.

***
Alas, it was a really nice book that I would totally recommend to Romcom lovers.

Henley and Graeme's story is not so much enemies as competitors to lovers as they compete for the digital marketing job at Sea Quest Adventures, a boutique cruise line. Their boss sends them both on the Galapagos cruise to have their chance at pitching ideas for the business. The boat is a perfect set up for proximity and Henley's eco idea sounds fantastic. I also like the relationship with Henley's sister Walsh and found that side story really enriched things overall. ( )

Shipped is such an adorable novel that will give you that "Calgon, take me away" feeling as you bask beach side with this cute-as-pie read.

Henley and Graeme, office rivals, are pitted against each other by their boss to duke it out over a promotion at work - winner take all. Their proving ground? The Galapagos Islands (rough life, eh? - ha ha).

Henley, who is, shall we say, a little tightly wound is slowly coming to realize that Graeme isn't as awful as she'd thought. And that maybe, just maybe, she's working so hard for a living that she's not really living at all.

A sweet story, with a great moral to be told about life. I hope you'll enjoy this one too!

Summer is for fun and frothy books. And what's more fun and frothy than an enemies to lovers rom com novel? Angie Hockman's Shipped is the perfect book to tuck into your beach bag to enjoy when your toes are pushed into the sand.

Henley Evans is working full time for a cruise line and going to school for her MBA. She is incredibly hard working and between all of her actual work and her school work, she has no social life at all. Her biggest thrill is in the email zingers she sends off to the company's remote social media manager, Graeme Crawford-Collins. Graeme frustrates Henley no end but she's also a little intrigued by this man she's only met over the phone, a man who seems to skate by through ingratiating himself with their boss and taking credit for one of Henley's brilliant ideas. So it's particularly galling to Henley when the company creates a new position and she and Graeme are both up for the promotion, a promotion that is, by all rights, hers. They'll have to take a Galapagos cruise, together, and create a proposal to entice more travelers to this particular vacation package. The one with the best proposal earns the promotion. Complicating matters is Henley's sister Walsh, who Henley takes with her on the cruise to help her get an outsider's perspective on the trip, and who is having personal problems of her own. Can Henley fight her growing attraction to Graeme, help her sister, and create a homerun of a proposal all at the same time?

The entire novel is told from Henley's point of view, allowing the reader to see the reasoning behind her misunderstanding of Graeme and her confusion as she adjusts her picture of him. There is no similar insight into Graeme so the reader learns about him and his motivations at the same pace as Henley. Interestingly, she is the character who blows hot and cold while he is more consistent, if she just wanted to open her eyes to that fact. The plot is sweet and the light touch of the importance of conservation and the issue of misogyny in the work place help give the novel a bit more depth. The reader roots for both Henley and Graeme so the ending is both endearing and so beyond unrealistic that it almost works. At the very least it leaves the reader satisfied. ( )

Between taking night classes for her MBA and her demanding day job at a cruise line, marketing manager Henley Evans barely has time for herself, let alone family, friends, or dating. But when she’s shortlisted for the promotion of her dreams, all her sacrifices finally seem worth it.

The only problem?

Graeme Crawford-Collins, the remote social media manager and the bane of her existence, is also up for the position. Although they’ve never met in person, their epic email battles are the stuff of office legend.

Their boss tasks each of them with drafting a proposal on how to boost bookings in the Galápagos—best proposal wins the promotion. There’s just one catch: they have to go on a company cruise to the Galápagos Islands...together.

But when the two meets on the ship, Henley is shocked to discover that the real Graeme is nothing like she imagined. As they explore the Islands together, she soon finds the line between loathing and liking thinner than a postcard.

With her career dreams in her sights and a growing attraction to the competition, Henley begins questioning her life choices.

Because what’s the point of working all the time if you never actually live?

Thank you, Goodreads and Gallery Books for the chance to read Shipped!

“{A rush of excitement fills y head and my lungs with pure, unbridled bliss. I’m soaring like a sparrow above an eagle. I’m swimming with the sharks. For the first time in my life, I feel like I’ve earned my namesake.}”

“{I feel like a rock star.}”

Shipped was a nice refreshing read! It has a little bit of everything. It’s funny! It has likeable characters! It has some romance. And yes, Henley and Graeme are supposed to fall in love but, the romance isn't thrown in your face where it over powers the other good parts of this book. It is beautifully written! I have not read The Un honeymooners or The Hating Game so I can't say for sure if the comparison is correct. But from everything that I have seen about this book says they are. This would be a nice beach read or on a really cold night bundle up and get comfy and crack open this book and let in some warmth in your life! Happy reading everyone! ( )
