Sin at Sea by Emma Nichols blog tour: Promo, Review, & Giveaway

When Alysin decided to surprise her boyfriend at work with dinner, the surprise was on her. Since he was going at it with his secretary on the conference table, she packed a bag and called her BFF. Jolie and Alysin had been traveling the country, working as digital nomads for ten years ever since graduation. Taking this as a sign it was time for a new move, they decided to take a cruise, regroup, and make a plan.

Then she meets Mr. Bedroom Eyes. Following her lead, they pretend to be married so that she can rid herself of the guy who started hitting on her before the boat left the dock. Though it was supposed to be a momentary arrangement, he asks her to take it one step farther. Then another and another. The cruise promises to be memorable in every way that matters. 

Along the way, Alysin learns that she won't have to fake an orgasm if she's with someone who knows what to do, that not all men suck, but the best ones suck really well, and that sometimes what starts out as something pretend, can fast become something completely real. Will the woman who lives life with no regrets, regret that she made that stupid rule about not exchanging names and contact info?

The new guy sat down.  I stared over at him.  “Hey, don’t mind me.  I just ended up getting drawn into your little charade.  Hope you don’t mind if I enjoy my meal while we keep up appearances?”  He smiled

“Nope.  We’re good,” I replied.

Though I was smiling at him, I had little to say.  There was so much going on in my mind…and thanks to Jolie, having an orgasm wasn’t part of that.  Still, I wasn’t going to turn down the possibility of some amazing guilt-free sex with a hot guy for anything.   Only I wasn’t sure how to gain his attention.  My smile hadn’t worked.  The kiss hadn’t accomplished anything.  What was it going to take to get a man like that to be interested in spending a few meaningless days on a cruise with me?  Guess I’d simply have to try the direct approach.

“Are you married?”  If that didn’t break the ice, nothing would.

“No,” he said, cocking his head.

I leaned in.  “Really?  Because you look like the marrying kind.”  I took another bite of my potato salad.

Throwing his head back to laugh, he said, “I run too fast.  No one can catch me, let alone keep up!”

“Thank you for saving me.  I’m here with my friend.  She is napping right now.  I’m not used to having to fend off guys anymore,” I admitted as I kept on eating.  Isn’t it nice when you don’t want anything from someone and you can just be yourself?  That was the freedom I felt around Mr. Bedroom Eyes.

He smiled and I saw he started to extend his hand.  I knew he was about to introduce himself, so I stopped him.  “Listen, you can tell me your name, but I’m just going to forget it.  I’m lousy with names.”

“Okay, so we’re not exchanging names?  Is there anything you would like to exchange?”  He smirked.

“Yes, as a matter of fact.  How about bodily fluids?”  I smiled and stared at him with a suggestive look.

He…choked on his Coke.  When he finally stopped coughing, I was about finished eating.  I don’t let much come between my food and me even if I don’t look like it.  

“Sorry, I’m not used to women being so direct,” he said with a smile as he wiped his face.

“I don’t play,” I said honestly.  Then I stood.  I am known for my exits.  As I turned, giving him full view of what I considered my best feature, I shot over my shoulder, “Think about it.”  Then I walked away.  Always…and I mean always leave them wanting more.  I didn’t have to look back to know that he was staring at me.  Let him stare.  With my head up and shoulders back, I headed to the elevator.

When I first picked up this book I expected it to be short, like 20 pages short.  I thought I wasn't going to enjoy this book as much as I did when I was approached to join this tour, but I was wrong.  I absolutely LOVED this book!!!

From the first moment I was introduced to Alysin I knew I would love her.  She's just broke up with her boyfriend Kyle who she found screwing his secretary in the office when she went to surprise him with dinner.  She calls up her best friend Jolie and tells her it's time for a vacation.  Alysin and Jolie always take vacations together and move to different cities together that's the beauty of their work and lifestyle they never settle and they never settle down.  This trip was just suppose to be a week for them both to be lose a carefree but life isn't always that simple is it?  Alysin's love life has always been a wreck she's become the queen of faking orgasms and she's a confident woman that knows just exactly how to draw a man in.  So when she's sitting at the buffet eating and she's approached by a guy she wants nothing to do with, she spots the perfect man she wants attention from who she quickly names "Mr. Bedroom Eyes" or has she comes to call him Mr. BE.  She jumps from the table and pretends that the gentleman is her husband coming to meet her for a meal and he quickly plays along.  Alysin isn't looking for love, she wants a fun time with a set of rules which pretty much are summed up to no names, no contact information, and no personal information is to be exchanged.

Mr. BE has some plans of his own.  He asks Alysin to pretend to be his fake wife for a week with everything included sex, fun, all the perks of being married, oh and did I mention... sex???  Their relationship is explosive even without knowing anything about one another other than the fact that he can't have kids and that there's nothing to worry about.  Everything is going so great for the both of them but as they grow closer and closer during their week and feelings start getting involved can they both get out with their hearts intact?

I don't think I've ever had so much fun reading a book.  I finished this book in one afternoon because quite frankly I just couldn't seem to put it down.  This book was about Sin At Sea well I can't wait to see what kind of sin Alysin and Mr. BE get into in Vegas.  When I finished this book all I could think of was I WANT MORE, I NEED MORE.  This book just didn't satisfy my craving for more of these two and I cannot wait to see where their next adventure will lead them and also see what happens with Jolie.  Absolutely brilliant debut book from this author, 5 amazing stars!!!
