#BlogTour | #BookReview | WET ORPHEUS (GONE WITH THE WAVES #2) by Brian David Bruns (April 13th 2020) @lovebooksgroup #lovebookstours

Hello and welcome to our stop on the Wet Orpheus blog tour!

Thank you very much to Kelly @ LoveBooksTours and Brian David Bruns for providing a copy of the book to [K]

The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.


He chose her over the company. He’s about to find out the real cost of romance…

Brian’s love for Romina may be strong, but he’s sailing into troubled waters. And he’s even prepared to endure torturous months apart working like a dog on another ship, if it means he can get them back together. Though he’s unprepared for the sadistic challenges his cruel new boss implements to break him body and soul.

Enduring extreme anti-Americanism, food deprivation, and 100-hour-long work weeks, Brian’s only beacon of hope is the messages sent from his soulmate. With her emails to sustain him, he vows to stay the course and outsmart the higher-ups of the cruise-line giant.

Can Brian survive the stormy conflict threatening to drown his hopes of reuniting with Romina?

Wet Orpheus is the second book in the wild Gone with the Waves romantic comedy series, entirely of true events in the author’s life. If you like insider accounts of work below deck, heart-aching emotion, and passionate love stories, then you’ll adore Brian David Bruns’s tale of overcoming impossible odds.


Brian and Romina are still unfortunately working on seperate ships, but Brian is determined to make enough money to be able to afford the life he wants with her. Which means he needs to keep working hard despite the trials his new boss is putting him through.

We have already been introduced to Brian, Romina, their friends and collegues in book 1, so now we learn more about them. Unfortunately Brian’s new boss is making his life an absolute nightmare. With the tasks and challenges he is assigned and long hours working he barely has any time to correspond with Romina.

This is the second book in the adaptation of Brian’s journals of his life at sea, yet again brilliantly written and can’t wait to read book 3 and see what happens next!
