Henley is up for a promotion at work, but there is one person in her way and that is remote employee  Graeme Crawford-Collins.  Although the two have never met, Henley despises him.  Due to both of them going after the same promotion their boss decides to send them on the company’s cruise boats to the Galápagos Islands where they are to write a proposal to help boost sales.  The best proposal gets the job.  When Henley’s sister shows up in Seattle without notice, she decides to take her on the cruise to get an outsider’s opinion and to keep her mind focused.  

When Henley and Graeme finally meet in person the attraction is undeniable.  Little does they know they both feel the same way.  Trying to be professional and remember that they are each other’s competition is getting harder as the attraction heats up. 

Oh this book was such a fun read!   I could go on and on about this book because it is the best escape for the times we live in right now, and I have always been curious about the Galápagos Islands, but I won’t!  

Don’t miss this one and get it today!

Goodreads Synopsis

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 shortlisted 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?
