Cruising by Cate Ashwood Review


Best friends Dylan and Jake have been inseparable since college, but Dylan has one secret he can’t bring himself to share with Jake—he’s completely, utterly in love with him.

Jake’s friendship is the most important thing in the world to Dylan, so as much as it hurts to see him with other people, Dylan keeps his mouth shut about his true feelings. When Jake wins a cruise to Alaska, he asks Dylan to go along, but what Dylan doesn’t know, is that there’s more on offer than a dream vacation.

Can Dylan and Jake sail off to their happily ever after, or are they cruising toward disaster?

I loved this little novella! It was hot and sweet and I couldn’t put it down!

Jake and Dylan had been friends for a while. But Jake wanted to take their friendship to the next level. Dylan had been in love with Jake since the day they met. But he never could work up the courage to tell Jake. He never wanted to mess up their friendship.

Jake making the first move by taking Dylan on a cruise. That’s when things really get started between them!
That elevator scene!!! Wow! Loved it! And everything there after.

This novella was a little angsty. But it wasn’t too bad. I definitely think Jake and Dylan should’ve talked right after everything went down with them.

But it all worked out in the end and I absolutely loved the ending! I wished this story was a little longer! I wanted to read more about them!!
