Blurb: Master Captain Theodore Gourdin has always loved the ocean. But his devotion to maritime life left little possibility for a long-term relationship. After two failed marriages, Theo gave up on finding the person who completed him and decided the sea was his soul mate. When offered the opportunity to captain the newly launched megayacht Eternity, Theo jumped at the chance. With Eternity’s maiden voyage looming, Theo focused all his energies on hiring his crew and readying his ship. The last thing he expected was to finally lose his heart in the process.
After twelve years at sea, First Officer Heath Rawlins was restless and in need of a change. A gay seaman’s life could be a lonely one, but to Heath the positives far outweighed the negatives. With excellent recommendations and an impressive resume, he was quickly offered a position on the private megayacht Eternity. Heath’s heart skipped several beats when he finally met the ship’s captain. He was handsome and charming. And… familiar? Had they met somewhere before? Highly unlikely. But as smitten as Heath was with the gorgeous captain, everything inside him screamed, Abandon ship! Rough seas ahead!
Review: I have had the pleasure of reading a few of Scotty Cade’s stories and have always been amazed by them. With this particular story I was at odds with it. The story is very well written with a lot of depth to it. However I think it was the actual story line that was a bit twisted for me. Although it does give me hope about reincarnation.
Theo was the captain of his ship but he had needed a first mate. One that he could get along with perfectly. He just had not expected how perfect they would get on. Then the dreams of a man long gone, showed him just a bit more about just how perfect they are together. It also explained why he was just not connected with his past wives.
Heath had spent twelve years at sea, but now he wanted a chance at a new life. One that still involved with the sea, but in a different way. The moment he saw his new captain, he thought he knew the man. Then the dreams started and it led him to the answers.
I would say that this story definitely had a touch of the supernatural world going on. Although I do have to say that I absolutely hated the ending. I think I could have done without it. Other than that this story was a blast to read, if not a little too slow paced for me. Georgia was a big hit along with her husband. I do have to admit though that at some parts of the story, I just skimmed over it. It just felt a little drawn out in some spots which is not a good thing for me. However I still enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more by this amazing author.
