The Cohen Cruise Line and Caliendo resort are merging. Emma Caliendo and her sister, Izzy, set sail on the maiden voyage to be two of the faces of this new resort venture. Izzy is up for fun in the sun, but Emma wants to steer clear of the Cohen men, who are nothing but a bunch of womanizers. She’s especially keen on avoiding Grayson Cohen.

Grayson, a childhood acquaintance, is now an arrogant, self-centered ladies’ man whose face is plastered all over the cruise’s advertising campaign. Emma can’t seem to turn a corner without seeing his stupid, conceited face.

Nevertheless, when Grayson starts seeking her out, platonic badgering becomes sexual teasing and Emma discovers she’s not as repelled by Grayson as she thought. In fact, she can’t help but notice the real man beneath the haughty exterior.

Suddenly, a three-week cruise fling with a Cohen man is exactly what she desires, but will walking away from him when it’s all over be as easy as she’s convinced herself?

Sunset Sail (The Caliendo Resort, #3)Man angst, yes, man angst and it is brought to you by Shannyn Leah in Sunset Sail. Don’t think I am making fun of a man filled with angst, because Grayson has earned every bit of his, and then some. His bride cheated on him with the one man he should be able to trust and believe in, no matter what and it was only three days after they married. No wonder he has become a manwhore, no emotions, just wild and crazy sex and poof, his partners are gone, no muss, no fuss. And then, his Kryptonite walked on board the maiden voyage of the family cruise line.

Emma has a reputation to of being brilliant, serious, standoffish and maybe a little frigid. Grayson wants her, not forever but for a night or two, because he never does commitments, ever. When friendly banter takes on a sexual undertone, Grayson is about to learn that Emma pulls no punches, she has a tongue as sharp as a dagger and her aim is often too true. So why won’t he be honest and admit he has feelings for Emma? She is the first true “friend” Grayson has ever had, but he can see her heart is getting involved and he is positive she deserves better than him. So, what is the answer? Will he do his usual hit and run, leaving Emma shattered or is she even stronger than he is, possibly turning the tables on him?

Love, crazy love, and Shannyn Leah is serving up another hot dish of Caliendo passion as one more Caliendo takes the Love Boat to turmoil, drama and sizzling, sensual heat. Moments of humor, moments of fun and moments of high energy tension as two people find that the merger of their respective companies is nothing compared to the merger of their hearts.

I received an ARC edition from Shannyn Leah in exchange for my honest review.
