Hello and welcome to our stop on the Gone With The Waves 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’s emerged as a swanky, tuxedo-wearing, cruise-ship rock star. But will it be enough to win his girlfriend’s heart?
Brian would walk the plank if it plucked Romina from her awful bottom-of-the-boat job. But knowing that their only way out of the hellish working conditions is to beat ships at their own game, he bids her adieu to learn the competitive trade of art auctioneering. And though he takes his fair share of hard knocks, he’s finally hitting the big time.
Becoming a master auctioneer, he lives like a cigar-smoking king aboard elite luxury liners with access to anything he wants. But when he returns victorious to whisk his love away to better things, Romina mysteriously refuses. And he worries that, in chasing his ambitions—regardless of good intentions—he may have lost her forever…
Can Brian persuade Romina that the world is their oyster, or will she push his grand vision overboard?
Gone with the Waves is the dramatic conclusion to the Gone with the Waves romantic comedy series, entirely of real events in the author’s life. If you like charming humor, conflicted hearts, and more twists than a whirlpool, then you’ll adore Brian David Bruns’s sweeping odyssey.
This is the conclusion to the Gone With The Waves trilogy, and Brian has finally made it big. The plans that he and Romina have been making can finally happen! When he arrives to whisk her away, she strangely refuses his offer….
Throughout this series we have experienced Brian and Romina’s highs and lows of working on cruise ships and trying to maintain a long distance relationship. We have met a myriad of characters and I have enjoyed learning about the fascinating lives of those who work on cruise ships and what goes on behind the scenes, including the trials and tribulations, to ensure we – the customer – have an enjoyable trip.
As I finished the last page I feel as though I have said goodbye to a friend, someone who has written correspondence to me regularly like a pen pal. To remedy this, I think I may pick up book 1 and start this series all over again!
