Kindle Crack Book Review of Enslaved By The Ocean

ARC kindly provided by in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler-free review. 4 stars.

I was on a cruise ship that had to make a pit stop to rescue a boat of people out in the middle of the ocean.  The captain wasn’t sure if they were pirates, safe etc.  True story…  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgzdUu....  No sexy pirates on this ship of fools.  Oh well.  I did find some sexy pirate action in Bella Jewel’s latest book – Enslaved by the Ocean.

I love Bella’s Hell Knights MC series so I jumped at the chance to check out this book.  Overall the story was pretty good and had some crazy twists and turns.  A few of the pirates had personalities that were reminiscent of the bikers she has written about in her MC series. It was almost like she took a biker club and put them on a boat for some high seas mayhem. You can’t go wrong with bikers or pirates… love bad asses!

I had one little issue with this book.  The references to the boat having a skull and crossbones flag waving, a mermaid on the affixed to the bow and someone wearing a swashbuckler sash thing was a little wonky.  I was waiting for Captain Hook or Johnny Depp to pop out of a port hole. Once I got past the Disney pirate vibe-- I really enjoyed this story.  Bella writes some fantastic biker books and Enslaved didn’t have a hot MC bike club president to fall for...but a hot captain with a big sword who knew how to use it. I got sucked into the whole bad ass pirate thing and finished this book in a day. There is a HEA and a set up for secondary characters to have their own book.  I will definitely check out book two.

Excerpt
“Stand up, this will be easier if you do,” he orders. He stands, taking me with him, and I lose my balance when I accidentally try to lift the wrong foot. Hendrix reaches out, taking my shoulder and goes to take a step forward to steady me, only to realize he’s wrapped the rope around his ankle, and is now tangled too. As if in slow motion, we topple backwards. I scream, and land with a thump on the ground as the ropes surround me. Hendrix lands over me, but manages to put his hand down to stop me taking the force of his body. He’s pressing into me in places he really shouldn’t be. 
“Fuck,” he curses, tugging his hand to try and untangle it. 
“How the hell did you get tangled too?” I cry out, squirming. 
“Stop fuckin’ squirming like that,” he orders, and I stop as soon as I realize why he’s asked me to. He’s hard. My God, he’s hard. 
“You’re…you’re…”
“I’m fuckin’ hard because you’re squirming against me. I’m a man. Get over it.”
