Between taking night classes for her MBA and her demanding day job at a cruise line, marketing manager Henley Evans barely has time for herself, let alone family, friends, or dating. But when she’s shortlisted for the promotion of her dreams, all her sacrifices finally seem worth it.

The only problem?

Graeme Crawford-Collins, the remote social media manager and the bane of her existence, is also up for the position. Although they’ve never met in person, their epic email battles are the stuff of office legend.

Their boss tasks each of them with drafting a proposal on how to boost bookings in the Galápagos—best proposal wins the promotion. There’s just one catch: they have to go on a company cruise to the Galápagos Islands...together.

But when the two meets on the ship, Henley is shocked to discover that the real Graeme is nothing like she imagined. As they explore the Islands together, she soon finds the line between loathing and liking thinner than a postcard.

With her career dreams in her sights and a growing attraction to the competition, Henley begins questioning her life choices.

Because what’s the point of working all the time if you never actually live?

Thank you, Goodreads, for the chance to read Shipped!

“{A rush of excitement fills y head and my lungs with pure, unbridled bliss. I’m soaring like a sparrow above an eagle. I’m swimming with the sharks. For the first time in my life, I feel like I’ve earned my namesake.}”

“{I feel like a rock star.}”

Shipped was a nice refreshing read! It has a little bit of everything. It’s funny! It has likeable characters! It has some romance. And yes, Henley and Graeme are supposed to fall in love but, the romance isn't thrown in your face where it over powers the other good parts of this book. It is beautifully written! I have not read The Un honeymooners or The Hating Game so I can't say for sure if the comparison is correct. But from everything that I have seen about this book says they are. This would be a nice beach read or on a really cold night bundle up and get comfy and crack open this book and let in some warmth in your life! Happy reading everyone! ( )

Henley Evans is driven. She wants to be the best at everything. She works extremely hard at her job at a cruise company, she is trying to get her masters degree, she dives into everything with 110% effort. But there is only one problem- Graeme, who is competing for the same promotion at work. Their boss decides to send both of them on a cruise to the Galápagos Islands so they can develop their proposal pitch for digital marketing director. While there, the spark between them is unmistakable. However, Graeme is an obstacle to Henley getting the promotion.
Shipped is a delightful story of two people finding their way and their voice, of standing up for what you believe, and of recognizing who has your back. Shipped also spotlights conservation efforts. I look forward to reading more from this author. ( )

This is a cute, quick read using the enemies-to-lovers trope. I loved Graeme though it took a while to warm up to Henley. She's so focused on her work and blew hot and cold while Graeme is a perfectly lovely guy (and patient).
The setting in the Galapolos Islands was great. Also, I didn't see the twist coming at the end and that was great. Good beach-type read. ( )

Contemporary romcom. Enemies to friends to love interest.
Written in Present tense.

Henley is ambitious. She is putting 100% into her job, working on her MBA, and loves crossing items off her daily task list. When the opportunity opens for a job promotion, she’s going to create the perfect pitch that will get her the job. More importantly, she needs to beat the competition, her office nemesis, Graeme The Rotten Troll. He’s been curt and part of the boys club with the boss since he started.
Henley and Graeme end up on a company cruise ship to experience the guest experience to the Galápagos Islands. Forced proximity changes everything.

I wasn’t so sure about the heroine for much of the book. Busy, and focused all over the place. At least twice I thought she bumbled. But wow, she steps up in the end. Strong and powerful, with the support of good friends and realizing there is more to life than she’s been living. A bit of glass ceiling bashing.
Graeme was consistently helpful, supportive and a true hero.
The lip-sync battle of Take a Chance On Me by ABBA was adorable.

I’ve been on a couple of cruises but nothing so intimate as detailed in this book. The descriptions of the Galápagos Islands and its wildlife and gorgeous views put this trip on my bucket list. It’s sounds so enchanting.
The afterward by the author is inspiring and worth reading and considering.

Loved the full story. Engaging, sweet and positive.

Excerpt:
“Graeme looks up as I approach. The waning sunlight catches his face and the hedgehogs pummel on my rib cage.
The most genuine, soul stirring smile forms and his entire aspect brightens when his eyes meet mine.
My steps falter. No one’s ever looked at me like that before — like I’m the sunrise after a long winters night. Or the first present on Christmas morning. It’s like you see in the movies, and from Graeme, it’s devastating.”
Excerpt from Shipped by Angie Hockman
