Today it is back to Mandie for a review of The Best of You by Sophie Leigh Robbins, the final book in the Oceanic Dreams series. Here’s what the book is all about:
About the Book
They may be faking their relationship, but they can’t fake the sparks that fly when they’re together.Available from: Amazon
Desperate to get away from her cheating ex, travel vlogger Holly books a last-minute cruise to the Caribbean. Right after boarding, she meets the gorgeous Noah who got dumped on his wedding day. His family got tired of his moping and sent him on a forced vacation. Good for Holly, because misery loves company, right?
Well, maybe not misery. Having Noah around completely brightens Holly’s vacation. He even pretends to be her boyfriend to dodge unwanted advances from a questionable guy. There’s only one tiny problem. Holly didn’t go on this cruise to see if there were other fish in the sea, and falling for a hot stranger was definitely not on the itinerary either.
Instead of choosing which cocktail she’ll be sipping by the pool, she now has a different decision to make. Risk getting her heart broken or abandon ship.
The Best of You is book eight in the Oceanic Dreams series. This feel-good romantic comedy can be read as a standalone and makes for the perfect beach read. It’s filled with laugh-out-loud and swoon-worthy moments.
The Best of You is the final book in the Oceanic Dreams series and I have to say that despite the books not necessarily being in my usual area of reading choice I have thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them and part of me is a little bit sorry they have come to an end.
In the final instalment we meet Holly who is a vlogger who has booked the cruise as a way to get over the end of a relationship, and Noel who is also on the cruise with his father but is trying to get some alone time. When he sees Holly being hassled by another passenger, he offers to pretend to be her fake boyfriend to scare him off. As their friendship develops into something more, they have do decide if they want to just remain friends or take a chance on love once again.
This book however is not just about Noel and Holly but also Noels father as he is also encouraged to take a chance on finding happiness once more. Despite Holly and Noel starting out with a fake relationship the author has given them enough chemistry to make their friendship believable. Despite this only being a short book you are quickly drawn into the story and their lives with quite a few hilarious moments along the way.
As with all the others in the series this can be read as a stand alone but my honest opinion is buy the whole set as you get to read some fun stories and will be introduced to eight highly entertaining authors that have certainly given me several hours of enjoyable reading.
