Publisher's Summary

What happens when you find out the one person who always rubs you the wrong way, can rub you the right way even better?

Taylor loathes boats and the water, but he accepts an invitation for a short cruise with his latest fling because the deck is good, and he has the vacation time. How bad could it be? When he’s stood up and stranded without a cabin by the deck, he can’t believe who comes to his rescue.

How in the hell is he supposed to survive for four days in the same room with his secret wet dream armed with only a suitcase full of lingerie? He’ll need every last bit of self-control to survive without climbing and claiming Bart all for himself. 

Bart’s brother won a cruise and convinced Bart to go. At the very last minute, his brother backs out, and he winds up with a huge king suite all to himself. After the ship sails, he sees his favorite sexy designer desperately trying to find a place to stay on the sold-out cruise.

Thrilled to come to the rescue, he offers to share his cabin since there’s plenty of room. It’s just the chance he’s been looking for to get Taylor to slow down and see what’s in front of him. Even if Taylor pretends to be immune to his charms, Bart’s a man with a plan and four days to make it happen.

Between Taylor’s suitcase of sexy fun, Bart’s surprising playful side, and an unexpected tropical storm, these men will realize that being up the creek without a paddle is sometimes exactly where you’re meant to be.

Author note: This book is a short and sweet stand-alone which follows two characters who were first introduced in the Just the Way You Are series of books. It is not necessary to have listened to those books to enjoy this one. However, if you’re curious about their world, there’s more to explore!

Also, please note, some liberties were taken with cruise ship protocols and procedures for this story.

Sweet

this was a sweet and uncomplicated HEA. I like switching from heavy stuff to something lighter sometimes. I loved that he got stuck on board with no room and had to share. it was cute. Kathy Banks

Great!

There were some missed words in the beginning as I read along with the narration but then the story got rolling. (But I did subtract a star for this). It was pretty sexy and had an HEA. I liked the premise of it. Randi did a great job with this one! I would recommend this!! ❤️

Up Ship Creek (Valentine's Inc. Cruises Book 10)by Abigail Kade. This story was well written with a lot of laughter and drama. Taylor and Bart kept me entertained. I enjoyed this sweet quick listen. The Narrator Randi Johnson did a fantastic job bringing these characters and story to life.

Taylor and Bart

Taylor and Bart work together and Taylor would like Bart but he's straight with a girlfriend. Bart breaks up with girlfriend and is going on a cruise with his brother and tells Taylor he wants a date when he gets back, because I am Bi. Turns out Taylor and a fling are on the same cruise, but Taylor's date cancels last minute and he is a stow away on the boat. Bart comes to the rescue and love blossoms. Short and sweet

Lovely, sweet and a lot naughty!

Listening to this book put me in a definitely good mood. It’s the perfect balance between sweet, snarky and a whole lot of sexy and a bit kinky. Suffice it to say there’s lingerie, role-play and a fox tail involved…. I loved Randi Johnson narration, it’s a perfect pick me up if you’re having a gloomy day!

Sweet Romance!

This story is different than what I have read before. This is a short novella, funny, and sexy. Randi Johnson did a great job with the narration.

Cute Story!

I enjoyed listening to this story. The intrigue of whether or not Bart would ultimately be able to hook up with Taylor was suspenseful. Who would have imagined the shocking circumstances that Taylor encounters aboard their cruise? I had to laugh at the “surprise” Taylor’s “friend” provided while packing Taylor’s suitcase!! How initially mortifying!! I also enjoyed the ending with how Taylor is able to surprise Bart. Randi Johnson once again does an excellent job in narrating this story. The tonal quality of his voice is wonderful to listen to and brings the story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Very Enjoyable!

This is a beautifully written short fun sweet story about Bart and Taylor. Unbeknownst to them, they both ended up on the same cruise alone, but while Bart had a nice suite, Taylor had no cabin because his friend had canceled and didn't tell him. Bart and Taylor ended up sharing and the rest, as they say, is history. This is such an enjoyable story that had me laughing at times. I love their banter. They even get a little kinky. Narrator Randi Johnson does a fabulous job.
