Cancer Ships Aquarius by Anyta Sunday
Series: Signs of Love #5
Release Date: February 17, 2020
Subgenre: Contemporary m/m romance
Prepare to dip your toe into the biggest adventure of your life, Cancer. There’s romance in the air, and it smells deliciously salty.
Dumped by the fifth girl in two years and abandoned by his best friends, Reid Glover is alone and in need of a home.
Desperate, he interviews to become a live-in manny aboard widowed Sullivan Bell’s yacht, the Aquarian.
The job? Not to look after thirteen-year-old Joanna. No, this child-mastermind needs Reid to befriend her dad, urge him to participate more in family life, encourage him to date, oh, and become his closest confidant and help him unleash his bottled emotions.
At least he’s not entirely out of his depth.
Okay, so he may have a slight aversion to the ocean. And possibly attract more than his fair share of misadventure.
But he is a pro at crying.
Watch out, Sullivan. Reid is on his way with a family-sized carton of tissues. He will help Sullivan through his fears. Will help him find love again.
Will absolutely not fall for him in the process . . .
Caution, Cancer, how long will you fool yourself?
Order through here:
Sullivan blinked at the whistle, then sighed. “Why especially now?” he asked, checking the damn time. “Six twenty-three.”
“Because I’m afraid you’ll throw me overboard.”
“Get up and I won’t have to.”
“But that’s the problem. I can’t get up yet.”
Confusion crossed Sullivan’s face. “It’s not that early.”
“That’s not my only problem.” Reid pointed to his sheet-covered crotch, revealing his predicament. Sullivan’s gaze sank down Reid’s wrinkled tank-top to the tented sheet.
Sullivan’s breath stuttered and he hurriedly jerked back. “You’re fired.”
Reid pushed into a sitting position and pulled the safety whistle over his head. “No way. I was just spelling out my predicament.”
“The only word you’re spelling is trouble.”
“Well S-O-R-R-Y, S-I-R.”
Sullivan disappeared out of sight muttering, “I’ll fire him. By the end of the week, I will fire him.”
Squeeeee! This book has it all! Anyta Sunday is known for her slowburns and this one probably takes the cake. I loved it to bits!!
Reid is one of the most oblivious people I’ve ever come across. So clueless. The clueless-est. Reid and Sullivan have this amazing UST throughout the book and I almost died when they finally got together!
Reid is a riot! He made me laugh so hard and I wonder if he sometimes hears the words that comes out of his mouth. I can’t believe Sullivan kept a straight face through some of the conversations.
“What’s unbelievable is you not being manly enough to swallow,” Reid muttered.
Sullivan swung his head toward Reid whip-fast. “What?”
“If that had been your sauce, I wouldn’t have spat it out.”
Sullivan’s eyes blazed into him, then he cast his gaze skyward. “New rule. The word sauce is forbidden. You can’t hold me accountable for what I might do if I hear it again.
This is a swoon worthy novel. I mean oblivious guy and grumpy guy is literally perfection. I wanted to scream at them to stop being idiots! And Sullivan’s habit of quoting Reid is so adorable.
Joana is a genius with a master plan. So devious!! I loved all the secondary characters and hopefully Mason will get a book. Don’t even make me start on the 🍆 conversation!
If it wasn’t already obvious, this book is highly recommended!
