ARC REVIEW : Only Forever by Scotty Cade


Master Captain Theodore Gourdin has always loved the ocean. But his devotion to maritime life left little possibility for a long-term relationship. After two failed marriages, Theo gave up on finding the person who completed him and decided the sea was his soul mate. When offered the opportunity to captain the newly launched megayacht Eternity, Theo jumped at the chance. With Eternity's maiden voyage looming, Theo focused all his energies on hiring his crew and readying his ship. The last thing he expected was to finally lose his heart in the process.

After twelve years at sea, First Officer Heath Rawlins was restless and in need of a change. A gay seaman's life could be a lonely one, but to Heath the positives far outweighed the negatives. With excellent recommendations and an impressive resume, he was quickly offered a position on the private megayacht Eternity. Heath's heart skipped several beats when he finally met the ship's captain. He was handsome and charming. And... familiar? Had they met somewhere before? Highly unlikely. But as smitten as Heath was with the gorgeous captain, everything inside him screamed, Abandon ship! Rough seas ahead!

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The idea of reincarnation was really good, I really interested of the concept of reincarnation. You know, what we did in a past life, comes alive again and so on and so on. So the 'forever' could really happen.

The prologue and epilogue was really interesting.
I thought I will read some sad cry-fest book after the epilogue. But instead, I have an insta-love 'I feel like I know you for all my life' kinda thing.
Well, of course, we need no brainer to know that Theo and Heath were Eddie and Steven in their past life, but still.

As much as I wanted to really love the story, I couldn't get into the whole boat details thingy.
As much as I wanted to feel the strong chemistry between Theo and Heath, all I can 'see' was 'lust'.
If only there's a stronger chemistry between the MCs, and less ship/boat details and ditch the annoying crew, I'll probably enjoyed the story.
But if you like lots of 'telling' instead of 'showing', give this book a try.
