Easton Crawford put his modeling career and good looks before his marriage until it was over. Years later, he is finally learning how to be the father his daughter needed him to be. Hes not looking for a new mom for his daughterjust nightly casual hook-ups. When his best friend, Avery, convinces him that a good way to meet a lot of single women is to go on a singles cruise, Easton finds more than just a hook-up when he meets a fellow cruiser, Brooke.

Brooke Bradley has taken care of her younger sister, Bailee, for most of their lives. While their mother was enjoying not being a mother, Brooke became the adult in the household at thirteen. She had always taken care of the people in her life, especially her boyfriend, Jared. If it wasnt for Brooke, Jared wouldnt know how to function throughout the day.

When Brookes best friend, Nicole, gives her a gift of going on a cruise without telling her that its a singles cruise, will Brooke find someone willing to be her constant and finally leave Jared?

Brooke and Easton learn that people are brought into their lives for many reasons. Over time, they find out what those reasons are. Some are to be a temporary acquaintance while others are there for life.

What will Easton do when he meets Brooke and realizes that she is someone that is meant to be in his life forever, especially after Brooke has an unexpected surgery and Easton is scared of losing her forever?
 My Review
5 Stars
Brooke Bradley was left to raise her 6 year old sister at the age of 13 when their mother decided that rich men were more important. She has always put others before herself, and that hasn’t changed in her adult life. She has been in a relationship with Jared, a needy and dependent guy, for the past 4 years. Things are comfortable between them.

Easton Crawford is no stranger to heartbreak. Being a single father to his 10 year old daughter Cheyenne and the owner of a busy bar in New York, his life revolves around work and Cheyenne. He doesn’t have the time or desire to do love. With his charming good looks and hot body, he has no problem getting what he needs from women. The women know its a one time thing and he never brings them home or around his daughter.

Brooke and Easton end up meeting on a cruise. Easton is there to hook up with hot chicks and Brooke received the trip as a birthday present....only she didn’t know it was a singles cruise. When Brooke and Easton meet, something happens to him. “The moment I saw her, I forgot about all of the possible hook-ups on the cruise. Her smile was like...her smile made my dick hard and my pulse race.”

Easton and Brooke spent most of the cruise together, getting to know one another on a personal, emotional level. While obviously physically attracted to one another, they didn’t act on these feelings....not with Jared waiting for Brooke at home. Over the course of the cruise the two realized that people are brought into our lives for a reason. 

What happens when the cruise is over? Do they go back to their boring, comfortable lives without each other or will Brooke learn to finally put herself and her own happiness first? Will Easton learn that its okay to let love in? What happens when a visit to the doctor threatens to destroy their chance at a happy ever after?

This is a story of self growth, love, and forgiveness. This book made me laugh, made me swoon, and made me shed more tears than I care to admit. In my opinion, it is Kimberly's best book yet. I finished reading 3 days ago and I still find myself thinking of Brooke and Easton. It was easily a 5 star read for me!
