Fleet Week Review

Fleet Week
Author: Melody Montclair
Genre: Erotic Romance
Released: June 1, 2013
Publisher: Velvet Pony Press
When shy Midwestern transplant Gina gets dragged out to Fleet Week, NYC's hookup central, she expects to spend the night avoiding eye contact with annoying drunks. Instead she meets Tom, a Southern gentleman turned Navy sailor, who talks literature with her while their friends get schwasted. But he's only in town for one week, then he'll be sailing out of her life forever.

Gina's not normally the type to start something she can't finish. And Tom keeps insisting he doesn't want to drag her into his "mess," whatever that means. But when they strike on the perfect solution ― one week of total abandon before they part ways forever ― even practical, tight-laced Gina finds it hard to resist...
I rated Fleet Week THREE AND ONE HALF LEAVES! The book follows the story about Gina and Tom who meet during Fleet Week in New York City. For those of you who don't know what this is...(shame on you, by the way)... fleet week is when military ships dock for one week. During this time, crews are welcome to explore the city, while the public takes guided tours of the ships. This book reminded me of the "Anchors Away" episode from Sex In The City, where Carrie meets the sailor... (one of my favorite episodes). Anyways, this book was a great Sunday steamy and lovely afternoon read. Bathroom sex? YES, PLEASE! As Gina is working in New York, she meets Tom and they start seeing each other for the week. As the two get to know one another, their feelings grow, and they feel like they are meant to be in each other lives. We also learn Tom has some baggage to overcome. By the end of the book, you feel like the feelings between Gina and Tom are real and genuine. The book ends in a slight cliffy that will make you excited for the sequel.

Author of the Fleet Week series, and purveyor of fine smut. Melody has appreciated the varied sinful delights found between the pages of smutmance novels ever since spending most of high school and college in various long-distance relationships. Although, if you want to get technical, her dirty mind probably originated in freshman year Band Camp. yes, she played flute.
