Summary

All hands on deck for a shipboard romance - with a secret.  

Like his cousins, Devin Walker aspires to be a chef, but he wants to indulge his wanderlust while feeding his customers, and working a cruise ship seems like the solution. Since he can’t find an opening in the kitchen, he’s happy to start out in a position behind the bar.  

While on board Poseidon’s Pearl, Devin is assigned to shepherd a visiting executive. Paul Bailey is quiet and unassuming, and the car accident that cost him his leg also shattered his confidence. He doesn’t think he’s attractive to other men anymore, and Devin is eager to show him just how wrong he is. Paul has a surprising secret that might sink their passionate affair before it even leaves port.

A sweet on the sea vacation read

Seeking Solace is a Dreamspun desire. This means it is based on a usual trope, full of romance and usually a HEA ending.
Seeking Solace is also book 3 of the Walker Boys and where this stands alone pretty good, I think I would have gotten more if I had read the others. I felt like this was more Paul’s story than Devin who is one of the Walker Boys.
Paul is the son of the owner of Triton Cruise lines, a high luxury vacation line. He is being groomed to take over as CEO of the company when his father retires. He also been in an accident and lost his leg, his boyfriend and confidence.
Devin is the bartender on the Pearl and loves his job though he is hoping for a job in the kitchen to open up as his dream is to be a great chef and open his own restaurant. He and Paul hit it off from the start, then Devin finds himself as liaison to Paul to help him meet everyone. This makes both men happy. They become good friends, hoping for more, but will Paul’s secret tear them apart when the cruise is over.
I liked this story. It was very sweet, and a good vacation read. I loved getting a tour off the cruise ship and resorts and felt swept away.
I listened to it on audio and have to say this wasn’t the perfect choice for a narrator for this story. I have listened to some John Solo and usually like his narration but the voices he gave these characters just didn’t fit. Devin is a Texan and he had no accent or any personality. Other than the voices the narration was good.
If you like, cruises, bartenders, high seas romance, men that are physically challenged, a sweet romance you will like this book.
