Synopsis (Goodreads):
Clare needs to loosen up and have some fun--not to mention some hot sex with someone other than herself. Her best friend, Kira, knows exactly what she needs--a vacation full of hunky single men who'll knock her panties off. When she booked the cruise for Clare's birthday, the travel agent left out one tiny detail. It's a supernatural cruise, and they aren't getting off until they're married.

The powers that be are tired of waiting for the supernatural to find their own mates and reproduce. In a desperate act to get the dwindling population back up, they've decided to take matters into their own hands. Dominik, a lycan, and Braden, a vampire, are just the two perfect candidates to start this experiment. They're sexy, in the prime of their reproductive immortal lives and ready to mate--just as soon as they can seduce their unsuspecting brides, or at the very least, keep them from swimming back to shore.

Rating: Contains graphic sexual content, adult language, and violence.This book is an erotic title. That means it's super, mega hot and full of steamy, melt your sock off sex. If that isn't for you, you should move along to a less steamy title.
Thoughts on Pleasure Cruise: I... didn't love this book. Not by a lot. This is mostly due to Clare's BFF Kira and her irritating disregard for Clare's feelings and/or well being. While it could be argued that Clare ultimately ended up getting what she wanted/needed because of Kira's actions, I just found myself annoyed beyond belief every time she'd open her mouth.

This was a case where a single character ruined what would have otherwise been an enjoyable read.

Although, to be fair, I was also a little weirded out by how both Dominick and Braden kept secrets from Clare and Kira. And the whole claiming thing where any unclaimed human could be claimed by a supernatural was off-putting.

Huh. I guess I didn't like this book at all. On the surface, it looks like I should. A pleasure cruise full of supernaturals waiting to get hooked up with their fated mate is right up my alley. But no. This book didn't do it for me.
