Caribbean Crossroads by Connie E. Sokol {Blog Tour Review and Giveaway}

Caribbean Crossroads by Connie E. Sokol
Kindle Edition, 270 pages
Published June 8th 2012 by Sokol Publishing


New college grad Megan McCormick just got dumped. Hard. Swearing off men and relationships, Megan is coaxed into performing on a cruise ship where she meets the star performer, Bryant Johnson. Handsome and charismatic, he looks like trouble, but she can't deny the intense attraction between them. Urged to find a wife and run the family lumber business, Bryant is torn between his family's expectations for his life and his own. However, when he meets spunky, but love-skittish Megan McCormick, settling down doesn't look so bad. Just when Megan begins to trust again, and Bryant makes some big decisions regarding his future, her former fiance returns with a malicious surprise, taking Megan and Bryant to their own CARIBBEAN CROSSROADS.


My Review: 4 Stars

I've never been on a cruise ship (yet), but this has me wanting to go! Megan's heart was shattered and in an effort to help a friend out and to try and move on, she gets a job as an entertainer (singing and dancing) on the ship. As hard as she tries not to fall for Bryant, the star of the show, she just can't quite help herself, but she's got some serious baggage.

I've never been hurt to the extent that Megan was, but I really wanted to her recognize that Jackson the Jerk gave her signs and warnings that he wasn't what he seemed to be and Bryant didn't. If I were Bryant, I would've hit the highway after being shunned several times, yet that man is persistent and patient! It's easy to say, "Just get over it!" but it's another thing to actually move on. I wish that Megan could have had a better relationship with her mother, in a way that she could talk things out. Therapy could have been beneficial too.

I love the characters and the friendships that are formed during this time. The camaraderie is so much fun, especially when they really have to pull together. There are some quirky characters, who really add an added element to the story line. I also enjoy it when characters have big decisions to make, ones that really affect their futures and seeing their actions play out is always enjoyable. I loved the setting, although only about half of the story takes place on the ship. I loved Jamaica and seeing these characters in their true elements back at home. I always enjoy a fun, contemporary romance and this was a great escape.

Content: mild romance (talk of cheating, kissing). Clean!!
