Will Meg let her past destroy her chance at love when she falls for the man she never wanted to see again?
Meg Summers was bullied about her weight when she was a kid. Now, as an adult, she's passionate about fitness and health. Just before the launch of her online business, 4FHealth.com, she reluctantly agrees to accompany her BFF, Shayla, on a singles cruise. Meg plans to dodge all the shipboard losers by staying in her stateroom and putting the finishing touches on her website.
Drew McDermott has one goal on this singles cruise: find a woman for his heartbroken brother, Joey. Drew plans to bide his time during the cruise, then return to his successful--albeit unfulfilling--career as an attorney in Dallas.
Shortly after the mandatory safety meeting aboard the ship, Meg meets Drew and sparks fly. When Shayla and Joey hit it off, Meg finds herself spending time with Drew instead of working on her website.
Despite her better judgment, she begins falling for him--hard--until a shocking discovery dredges up painful memories from her childhood and changes everything.
Will this revelation doom Meg's blossoming relationship with Drew or will she be able to move past it?
I would like to thank Rebecca Talley for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
On Deck for Love makes you laugh and makes you think. There are some very humorous and memorable secondary characters in the story. Some of the guys on this single cruise with their lame pick-up lines are a riot, as are the desperate single women. Ouch!
Meg is quite relatable, with her insecurities and past hurts. It is pretty fun the way she babbles when she is nervous, and some of her verbal faux pas are great!
The story is not predictable, and yet parts of it are. I knew what the big conflict coming up was going to be, yet there were a number of twists that kept me guessing what the resolution was going to be.
This is just one of the stories in the Reunion Romance novellas by Rebecca Talley. Those I have read are all great stand-alone stories.
