Summary

A man with a heart-stopping fear.
An exhausted single father.
Both fated to save each other.

Lance’s abject fear of water won’t stop him from designing the interior of the island-bound Castle Harbor resort. Yet a close call brings him in contact with the stunning local captain of a boat touring company. Can he overcome his phobia to find love? 

Quinn is a single father to his adopted nephew, the pair still raw after losing Quinn's sister. Meeting a new, gorgeous man is entirely unexpected, but very well received. Still, he needs something more permanent than an interior designer in town for a few weeks.

When the project promises more than expected, will Lance decide to make it a long-term affair?

This single dad or instant family romance audiobook is sweet, steamy, and savory. Only for adults. In Castle Harbor, there are no cheaters - only happily ever afters. This audiobook and every other audiobook in the Castle Harbor Series can be listened to in any order.

Great series

This was a good read. Ok well listen. LOL. I am really enjoying this series.

Lance has a fear of water and meets Quinn who runs boat tours. Quinn is a single father that doesn’t date as his focus is his son

They have an instant spark and great chemistry. I love how their relationship developed and never saw the twist coming that threatened their relationship

Narrator has done a great job with not only this book but the series. Onto the next book

Sweet Story

So this is actually a good but but the narration is poor. The narrator sounds the same for both MC making hard to tell who’s POV it is. Overall it’s a sweet book about two men helping each other conquer fears and and accept love.

Very cute short story

This book was my introduction to JP Oliver and I really enjoyed it. I loved the main characters and the town of Castle Harbor. It makes me want to visit. I'm looking forward to listening to more of the guys in Castle Harbor!

Another good one!

Another great addition to the Castle Harbor series. Lance and Quinn are both dealing with some pretty heavy issues. I’m a huge sucker of instafamily stories which this definitely is!
The narrator Austin Jay is definitely growing on me. I enjoy his narration of Rough Waters!

Quinn & Lance

This is a heartfelt and emotional addition to the series and I truly enjoyed it. Lance and Quinn both have tragedies in their past that have shaped them and their emotions. It's not easy to get through the walls that they have built around themselves. Watching these two slowly but surely build a relationship is a true delight. Lance and Quinn are great together and really understand one another. I really liked seeing them work through their issues together even though it wasn't always smooth sailing. The narrator did a great job with this story and with portraying the characters and emotions. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.

another great addition to the series

Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Were there any parts I found annoying: no
Did I feel an emotional connection to the characters: yes
Would I listen to it again: yes

Story comments: Another great instalment to the Castle Harbor Series. Two guys, both fighting their own demons, work through their issues to what 's really important.

Narrator comments: Austin Jay has done a good job narrating Rough Waters. The personalities of each character were distinct but I would have liked a little more tonal difference between Lance and Quinn. I really enjoyed the energy little Sam added to the story.

Sweet; Loved Sam!

I loved this sweet romance between a man who fears water and a man who lives on the water. I really enjoyed how these two characters came together and made a potentially short-term encounter into a family. Aside from the core water-based drama, there is a secret that explodes near the end with the potential to destroy everything. That got cleaned up maybe a little too quickly, but this is still a very sweet story, and I love seeing how the town functions in the shadow of a looming resort. I loved Sam and the way he helped Lance overcome his fear of stepping foot on the boat, and I loved the way Lance eventually looked past the past and overcame his guilt.

Good narration, especially the way he voiced Sam!

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request. This is my honest, voluntary review.

We have a winner!

A man with a paralyzing fear of water encounters a man who earns a living (and is raising his nephew) on an island. Can Lance (the decorator with the phobia) conquer his fear and give in to his attraction to Quinn, the single dad? As always, love conquers all, but not without plenty of twists, turns, and challenges along the way. This is a sad, sweet, and satisfying entry in the Castle Harbor series compellingly narrated by Austin Jay.
