The sexual tension between us was like a stick of dynamite, just waiting to explode.

- Private Charter by N.R. Walker

Stuart Jenner’s job is high stress, high stakes, and everything he’s strived for. So why, when the apex of his career is within reach, does he stumble? At his doctor’s insistence, he books a privately chartered yacht to sail around the Whitsundays for two weeks of sun, surf, and sex. When his friend-with-benefits bails on him at the last minute, Stuart decides to go alone.

Foster Knight left the rat race behind six years ago, bought a yacht, and now calls the Great Barrier Reef his home. Sailing tourists around tropical waters is all in a day’s work, and he’s never been happier. When his next client arrives alone, the two-week charter will be the most private job he’s ever had.

Foster can see how stressed and exhausted Stuart is, and he promises him extensive rest and relaxation. Stuart slowly realises his original plan for two weeks of sun, surf, and sex might not be lost yet. Confined to a yacht, isolated by aqua-coloured oceans and the sweltering sun, Stuart and Foster are about to find out just how hot the tropics can get.

Perin's thoughts on - Private Charter

To me, this was the perfect vacation for my heart and soul. Stuart is a businessman, stuck in his fancy life in finances, sick of the rat race he's been in for years. And Foster has already seen and done it all. He's lived the life Stuart is currently contemplating of leaving, and he's chosen his yacht, the ocean and freedom instead. Thanks to Jason, Stuart's guy-with-benefits, who cancelled on him, Stuart and Foster are alone on the yacht he's booked for his vacation.

And holy hell, these two have instant chemistry. I only put the book down when my eyes fell closed and as soon as they opened again, I needed to keep going. The steam just floated off the pages. #fuckingperfect

During many occasions, I had tears in my eyes. Not just from laughter, but also from the severe emotion that bloomed inside my chest. It was truly moving. Jealousy, love, angst, fear. This book has it all.

I loved every bit of it which makes it my favorite book of 2018.
