Janet Evanovich steps away from the number series to write this book, which was originally titled Ivan Takes A Wife (gee, can't see why they changed it). Stephanie Lowe, ex cop, offers to take over from her cousin Lucy as a chef on the boat Savage. Savage happens to be owned by hunky Ivan Rasmussen (his name even sounds hunky!) and as the title states, it's love overboard.
Why do I keep reading romance novels? They are so corney and unbelievable! Ivan thought he loved Stephanie only about a day after being on the same boat together, even though he's a self-proclaimed womanizer. Please! I don't believe it for one second. Over a greater time period this story would be more believable. Although, Evanovich really does do a good job of painting Ivan as a hunk (yum)! And what's with Janet Evanovich and the name Stephanie? Does she have a kid named Stephanie (if so, poor kid, she's getting modelled after the hokey characters in this book!)? The cover is pretty though, so bonus marks for that!
