Book Review: Captain (Morgan Brothers #1) by Lauren Rowe

I love finding a new author, getting super excited, and pretty much adding all their books to my TBR and stalking (I mean following!) them in all the places. That’s what happened with Lauren Rowe! Captain was an awesome read and made me an immediate fan.

Captain (Morgan Brothers #1) by Lauren Rowe 



synopsis_thumb2_thumb_thumb

It wasn’t the way this kind of story was supposed to go . . .
Insta-love isn’t supposed to turn into insta-hate.


But that’s exactly what happened when the hot-as-hell dreamboat I met in a bar turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag-player-douche looking for nothing but a little side action. Jerk.


And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a “sociopath”? Assh*le.


And now, three months later, through a mind-blowing series of events I couldn’t have predicted in a million years, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister in Hawaii and I’ve got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week.


Okay, sure, I’ll put on a happy face this week and act like I’ve never even met the jerk before--did I mention his sister is marrying my boss?--but that doesn’t mean I’ll like it. And it certainly doesn’t mean I’ll stop secretly hating the cocky bastard’s guts.


Because I do.
I hate him.
I really do.


I just wish my brain would explain the situation to my body . . . because every time he flashes that panty-melting smile at me, it takes all my self-restraint not to jump the bastard’s hot-as-f*ck bones.


*For fans of Ball Peen Hammer and The Club Series, please note Captain features Ryan Morgan and takes place one year before the events of Ball Peen Hammer. It also includes characters from both Ball Peen Hammer and The Club Series, though Captain is a complete standalone with no prior reading is required.

4 out of 5 stars


How fun and entertaining was this! I had a blast reading Captain. I loved the characters, the story line, and the out right fun vibe it had, awesome read!


First off, Tessa and Ryan are in a crazy situation and I loved how it was presented. They had such a spark together and I loved that playful, witty chemistry they shared. It was instant and awesome! I really liked them meeting and reconnecting, and all the missed connections. I'd come across something and totally laugh because it was like they were so close yet so far away from figuring out some very key elements. It was hilarious!


This was filled with so many humorous moments, it made it a blast to read. I also loved that it was dual POV, I loved knowing their thought process and perspectives. This is a pretty light read, there’s a good amount of hot times mixed in with just the right amount of emotion. Nothing super heavy happening, just outright fun. My only thing was it felt a bit drawn out in spots so it had a long feel happening. Sometimes it was a bit over the top with the zaniness but it made it freaking entertaining and fun, I just enjoyed it all!


I enjoyed all the characters and family members and the awesome nick names they had for one another. I liked all the different relationships and the bonding going on between people. There was just this really great group dynamic that made me want to hang out with all of them.


A wild situation for sure but I loved the ins and outs, the bit of angst and anticipation as Tessa and Ryan figure it all out and come together. If you are in need of some light sexy fun, look no further. Captain is just what you need to bring a smile to your face!

things-to-note_thumb2_thumb

True confessions: I’m totally confused as to which book is actually book one in the Morgan Brothers series. Since this page on Goodreads says Captain is book 1, that’s what I went with. However, from the publishing dates, Ball Peen Hammer was written first even though on that same Goodreads page it says it’s book 3. If you check out the Morgan Series on Amazon, it says Captain is book 2 and Hero is book 1.


So, I don’t know, lol! In the end, it probably doesn’t matter, they’re all standalone stories with interconnecting characters. Since I’m obsessed with reading in order, I thought I’d share what I found about the series.



Are you an in-order reader or can you jump into a series with any book? Let me know!
