Pride of the Caribbean #3
Genre: Paranormal, Series
Lewis Martel is attending a wedding on the cruise ship Pride of the Caribbean. He’s looking forward to a relaxing getaway celebrating the grooms’ happiness—a happiness Lewis desperately longs for in his own life. A believer in true love, he has yet to find that one man to be his best friend and other half.
Lewis soon discovers all is not what it seems aboard the LGBT friendly cruise ship. From his first night aboard, Lewis is inundated by vivid dreams of an ancient time full of shadows in the night and mysterious warriors. The haunting—and often sexy—dreams become so all-consuming, Lewis looks for every chance to fall asleep and immerse himself in this dream world.
A trip to an antique shop on St. Martin brings the reality of these lucid dreams to the fore. Lewis is faced with a past he can’t recall and a lover he’ll never forget. Can the paranormals living aboard the Pride help Lewis understand his new reality or will ancient demons ruin his chance at happiness with the other half of his soul?
I enjoyed this next story in this series, and couldn’t put it down, wanting to be sure that Lewis and Theron got their happy ending. I liked how the story progressed, and the part the other characters played. I thought the twist with what at first seemed to be a bad guy was nicely done too.
I liked how this story not only told Lewis and Theron’s story but also hinted at what’s to come for others onboard the Pride. I liked how all the characters came together to help out, and the strong sense of found family on the ship. This is also a story about friendship, and I enjoyed the scenes between Lewis and Kendra.
The world building is great, and I enjoyed the glimpse into the past through Lewis’ dreams, although it took a long time for poor Liam to get his HEA.
The author does a great job in setting up expectations, especially with the story behind the person hunting Liam, and then going in a different direction. The revelation about Daniel and the book Lewis is reading is fun, and one of my favourite parts of the story. I liked Daniel and I hope he and Christopher get their own story. Adam needs his HEA too.
An added bonus was Skip and Jeremiah’s wedding and everything that came with that, as I’d enjoyed their story too. The ceremony is very cool.
I loved the hints about what’s next, and am looking forward to the next book in the series.
5 out of 5 stars.
