I have to say, I love a good pun. That, in of itself, was enough to draw me in. That, and who can say ‘no’ to a cruise romance?
We follow Addison Davis – an assistant designer in an interactive media company – who moved from her home town to the Big Apple to escape a toxic past. She meets Matthew Blake, a hard-working co-worker (pseudo boss) who seems to take an interest in her. If not a formal one. Reunited with her family, Addison goes on a Caribbean Cruise only to find that Mr. Blake is there! His interest takes a less formal turn as the pair hit it off. We join them in a blossoming romance where she makes her desire for control obvious, and he makes his willingness to oblige even more so.
I like to reset my brain after longer, more intense reads with something shorter. And typically sweeter. “Nauti by Nature” hit the spot. It was a light palate cleanser and it’s certainly something that anyone hankering for a quick and easy read should pick up!
The characters were likable, and the pacing of the story was quite nice. It was almost like being on vacation alongside the MCs, which, I don’t know about you, friendship, but I am in desperate need of one. There was some tension to be had (I mean, can you really have a romance novel without a ‘come apart), but it wasn’t frustrating in the sense that asks you to suspend reality. Their relationship felt very real and very approachable!
I am also particularly pleased, seeing that this is a debut novel. Leigh did a great job with Nauti by Nature and I’m keen to see what comes next!
