Summary

After breaking up with his girlfriend, Lucas is eager to get away from reminders of their relationship so he answers an ad to join a pirate show in the Caribbean. What he doesn't learn until he gets there is that there are two shows: one gay and one straight, and he's been hired for the gay show. Determined to stay, Lucas vows to "play gay", but he hasn't counted on becoming the target of the show's pirate captain, Adam, and his first mate and lover, Tyler. Adam will only let Lucas stay in the show if he plays by Adam's rules. But Adam wants more than a good performance from Lucas, he wants Lucas to surrender to a desire he's about to learn he can't resist.

Enjoyable first part of the story

An enjoyable, albeit far-fetched, first installment in the ‘A Pirate’s Life for Me’ series. It sets up the main characters and possible future romantic interests for Lucas. Who will he fall for? His room mate? The strict, Dom-like Captain or his First Mate? One of the other sexy pirate ‘actors’? Possibly some or all of them? Lucas struggles with his sexuality for most of this story. He will need to accept his bisexuality first and have fun while he ‘works’ and plays in the Caribbean.

I always enjoy Tricia’s writing style and story-telling. As always, Nick J Russo brings the story and characters to life.

Fun and engaging!

Lucas's interactions among the variety of characters throughout this vacation island background was highly enjoyable. With the exception of Tyler (total angsty hateful bore), I was happily surprised and entertained with all the different personalities and conversations that go on. The captain's magnetism is palpable and the various forms of sexual heat and tension could fill a buffet. I'm definitely intrigued to read the next book!

enjoyed it

Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Were there any parts I found annoying: no - but part 1 of a trilogy so not a complete story
Did I feel an emotional connection to the characters: yes
Would I listen to it again: yes

• Needed to suspend belief in reality, but once I got past that I enjoyed Lucas' journey, as he comes to terms with his own prejudices, feelings and self discovery.
• Interesting characters, good pace and enough that I will look for the next in the series.
• Nick J. Russo does a fantastic job at bringing the characters to life and adds to the audio experience.

tense and steamy

I have listened to this probably ten times, it's just a nice listen full of tension and Nick J Russo does a great job bringing the characters to life. I wish they were finishing the audiobooks of this series though, I'd love to keep listening.
