About the Book:

Janey’s never felt this way before, but staff is forbidden from dating passengers. It's only one dirty dance... 

Legend says everyone who boards the Oceanic Aphrodite finds love. Janey’s on the ship to teach pole fitness, not for romance. Then she meets Frank. He’s everything Janey isn’t–refined, classy, rich–but his good looks and charm make him undeniably appealing. Unfortunately, he’s also a passenger.

When Janey’s partner can’t perform in the end-of-cruise talent show, Frank offers to fill in. He’s never done pole, but she's got time to teach him. As they grow closer, Janey finds herself hoping the legend is real–but if she gives in to temptation, she could be out of a job.

My Review:

Time of My Life parallels quite a few parts and characters from the movie Dirty Dancing and I enjoyed them all. The cruise ship setting engaged me and the pole dancing aspect intrigued me. The romance was sweet and I loved how the author built it up. The story is fast paced and never boring. The author did a great job adding in some emotional content that had me feeling what the characters were feeling. 

As someone who's been on a couple cruises in her life, this story took me back to them. Of course, there weren't pole dancing lessons (which is a pity, really. I would have enjoyed trying it out). The author did a great job bringing the reader onto the cruise ship. The world building allowed me to visualize the story. The descriptions for the pole dancing techniques were easy to follow and understand. Time of My Life is an enjoyable, quick read.

My Rating:
