Publisher's Summary

The Unhoneymooners meets The Hating Game in this witty, clever, and swoonworthy novel following a workaholic marketing manager who is forced to go on a cruise with her arch-nemesis when they’re up for the same promotion.

Between taking night classes for her MBA and her demanding day job at a cruise line, marketing manager Henley Evans barely has time for herself, let alone family, friends, or dating. But when she’s short-listed for the promotion of her dreams, all her sacrifices finally seem worth it.

The only problem? Graeme Crawford-Collins, the remote social media manager and the bane of her existence, is also up for the position. Although they’ve never met in person, their epic email battles are the stuff of office legend.

Their boss tasks each of them with drafting a proposal on how to boost bookings in the Galápagos - best proposal wins the promotion. There’s just one catch: They have to go on a company cruise to the Galápagos Islands...together. But when the two meet on the ship, Henley is shocked to discover that the real Graeme is nothing like she imagined. As they explore the Islands together, she soon finds the line between loathing and liking thinner than a postcard.

With her career dreams in her sights and a growing attraction to the competition, Henley begins questioning her life choices. Because what’s the point of working all the time if you never actually live?

Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Sally Thorne, Shipped is a fresh and engaging rom-com that celebrates the power of second chances and the magic of new beginnings.

Horrible

Story line was predictable. Main character was silly and petty. I had trouble finishing this book. Don’t waste a credit.

Really sweet

I really enjoyed this! The story was really cute and not predictable, the characters were likable and relatable, and I found myself laughing out loud a few times too. Ines de Castillo's performance was so great, I can't remember the last time I enjoyed an audiobook's performance so much. I also really enjoyed Angie Hockman's thoughtful note at the end, I so appreciated it. If you liked The Hating Game, this definitely has a similar vibe so I would definitely recommend Shipped.

Absolutely Perfect!

I couldn't stop listening to this one, once I started. This is probably the fastest book I've ever listened to, less than 1 week. It was fun, light, sexy, humorous, intriguing and all around great! The conservation aspect of the book was a huge success for me. It had just the right amount of sexy scenes without going into the "R" rated scenes, which I don't care for. So this was a win win for me in all categories! I can't wait to read more by Angie Hockman.

Changed my Mind

The narrator was amazing and kept me interested. I now want to go to the Gallapagoes (sp?), the details made my mind up of where I'm going next cruise.

Great Read

Shipped was a good read by Angie Hockman. Henley Evans is a marketing manager at a cruise line while taking night classes for her MBA. She barely has time for herself, and definitely not for family, friends or dating. She is shortlisted for her dream promotion, and now every trouble seems worth it. Unfortunately, Graeme Crawford-Collins, the remote social media manager, is also up for the position. They are both tasked with drafting a proposal to boost bookings in the Galapagos. The best proposal of the two will win the promotion. Although they are the bane of each others existence, they must go on a company cruise in the Galapagos together. Graeme is nothing like what Heney imagined. They both grow an attraction to each other although the promotion pits them against each other. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Funny, Romantic and very thoughtful!!

This was beautifully written and so much fun! But it also made you think about very important issues concerning our planet. I also loved the narration, her voice was raspy and so expressive!!

Nice refresher

I really enjoyed this book! A unique setting paired with a romance that is believable and satisfying to listen too. Not gonna lie, I looked up Galapagos adventure cruises after reading! Plus, the narration is awesome!

Keep Listening

The self absorbed main character vs perceived enemy trope feels overdone to me but this book did a really great job pulling through in character development and did not stay in that mode for too long. I enjoyed the chemistry between our main couple. So while the book is rather predictable in the beginning, keep listening and you'll be glad you did. My only complaint was that the audio quality wasn't 100% clear so listening in the car had it's difficulties. It's not a major issue though.

A great story

This is a well developed storyline with interesting and believable characters that work well together and add flow to the book. Once you start you will not want to put it down. You will feel so many emotions in this book. The book is funny at times you may find yourself laughing out loud. You may even strike up your past feelings and may feel yourself in the predicaments. The trip to Galapagos was great, the descriptions were amazing. They made you feel you were there. A very nicely written book that I can recommend.

Sexy & Funny! - This book made me want to go to the Galápagos Islands

I vocally laughed out loud while listening to this audiobook. I found the cast of characters so relatable to my own twenty-something experience of the not so distant past. The book kept me laughing and enticed to the very end. I also love the elements of empowerment of women; romance and the need for us to be more eco friendly and sustainable when it comes to our travel. This book made me want to travel to the Galápagos Islands; somewhere I might not have wanted to ever go to had it not been for reading this wonderfully funny, sexy, and immersive book.

Not a Fan

Found the story slow, completely unrealistic (even for a romantic comedy), drawn out, simplistic, and trying too hard and randomly to touch on every hot social activist issue. Wish I had stopped an hour in. It only got worse.
