All American Boy Series
Jeremy Riley fell in love with sailing when he was a troubled teen and sent away to camp for the summer. Now he’s sailing for a living. Getting a bachelors in vessel operations was the best thing that he could’ve done. Most of the year, he’s on the ship helping with hands-on education for the New England Maritime Academy.
The bright spot in Kendall Winters’ life is his daughter, three-year-old Savannah. How his sister had deserted Savy when she was diagnosed with cancer and needed her the most boggled his mind. Her loss was his gain — and there was no way he was ever giving Savy back to her. Now if he could find someone to share Savy’s highs and lows with, that would be amazing.
A summer trip to the Tall Ship Festival to get away from his parents and let Savy explore ‘boats’ seems like the best idea. Sun and sea for him and Savy sounded perfect to him. Add in a gorgeous sailor with eyes that sparked with mirth? Sign him up.
Review by Twinsie Tenise
As the story begins we find out that Kendall has been raising his niece as his own child since his POS sister jumped ship and gave up her rights. We also find out early on that Kendall’s mother is a pretty crappy human but we shall do our best to ignore that old loon. Needless to say, Kendall needs to take a weekend to go somewhere fun with his daughter. He decides a weekend away at a boat festival is just the place to go since his little Savvy is obsessed with boats.
Jeremy is a sailor and the ship he has been a part of its crew for a few years now is in the festival Kendall and Savy are going to this weekend. I’m sure you have an idea of what you think happens next but I will leave you to find out without me spoiling it for you.
I enjoyed this quick MM read by new to me author, Kris Jacen. I give it 3.5 rounded up to 4 stars. I received a copy of this book from the author and this is my honest review.
Kris Jacen grew up just north of Boston, Massachusetts, and currently lives in western New York with her two daughters and three rambunctious dogs. She always said she was “only an editor” but then Mackey showed up and proved her wrong.
She after editing for over fifteen years, she opened her own editing/formatting/cover art company, Three Hearts. Working with all the amazing authors she’s had the privilege to work with has allowed her to both hone her editorial skills and indulge her inner fangirl. She also acts as editor, mentor and sounding-board for newcomers which lets her “pay-it-forward” and help authors realize their dreams.
